Male Anti-Masturbation device, 1871-1930

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?!
