This may be teetering on the edge of inappropriate content but I’m presuming that’s one of the reasons you come here, is it not? Anyhoo, let’s talk about this anti-masturbation device…

During the late 1800s, masturbation was considered to be not only morally wrong, as it is a form of self-gratification, but also harmful to health. This device was hooked on to a waistband and covered the penis and testicles. The device was worn underneath clothes but the resulting bulge must have looked quite odd!

So basically it was like a bear trap for erections. Ouch! Those Victorians were just full of progressive ideas hey?!
