What are chastity belts used for?
Chastity belts – those rusty and horrifying inventions meant to keep Middle Age women under lock and key? Well, not quite! The real history of chastity belts is much more complex.
There are many varying accounts of the origins of these mysterious objects. Some historians attribute them to the time of the Crusades when knights went across Europe, leaving their young wives at home. The belts, it is theorised, were a deterrent to infidelity.
However, despite its mythic status, there is little to no evidence to support their existence, or that they were ever used in this way. In fact, most historians agree that the idea of the belt used as a device to prevent female promiscuity was just a modern Renaissance imagining of the ‘prehistoric’ Middle Age people.
It’s been pointed out that, aside from a lack of historical records, it would have been physically impossible to wear a metal belt on a long-term basis without resulting in serious injury. Fortunately, modern chastity belts are far more user friendly, medically safe and designed solely for longer-term wear without any nasty medieval side effects.
Nowadays, they are used as adult toys for a variety of purposes including torture play, to build anticipation (over hours or days) and as an instrument of control. It’s a great way to build trust within a relationship and to safely push your partner into tantalising anticipation.
Of course, chastity belts and devices aren’t just designed for women. Modern chastity devices for men include chastity cages which provide a secure and an exciting element to your sexual life.
If you haven’t yet brought them into your bedroom, you’re missing out!
Are chastity belts painful?
The short answer is no – chastity belts should not cause any serious injury or damage to your body. The majority are designed with your comfort and safety in mind. But of course, you wouldn’t want to buy a BDSM toy if you didn’t want a little bit of discomfort. Remember that this should come from sexual tension and not lack of blood circulation!
For women, a chastity belt looks similar to a thong, but comes with a locking mechanism at the front. For men, the design will be similar but will have a separate section to hold everything in. There are numerous designs ranging from the simpler to the more complex.
The fitting of the belt is the most important element, and this will ensure that wearing it is not a painful experience. When you place it on (or have it placed on you by your partner) make sure that it’s not sitting too tightly against your skin. If it’s chafing your skin or causing your blood flow to be restricted, you should adjust it until it fits comfortably.
When deciding to buy a chastity device, there are a couple of things to take into consideration. The first is the material. Some of the best quality materials are silicone, stainless steel or high-quality, medical-grade plastics. This will ensure that the device can be cleaned properly and won’t cause any unwanted side effects.
Chastity belts are not meant to be worn permanently. It’s important that you take them off regularly and clean them properly to prevent infection and avoid poor sexual hygiene. No matter how tempting it is to keep it on long-term, you’ll have to maintain the device to ensure that it never causes any (unnecessary) pain.

Made from sturdy plastic, this short male chastity cage kit comes highly recommended.
With 3 locking pins, you can adjust this CB-6000S device to be tighter or looser, as you prefer. The clear plastic design is a novelty for many who want to be able to use a chastity device that maintains a snug fit but doesn’t restrict blood flow or gets too uncomfortable after long-term wear.
