Many people don't realize it, but the chastity belt is still around and still very much in use. While in Western culture using a chastity belt against someone's will would be considered abuse, there are many still worn by choice and possibly even against the will of its wearer. For a common folk, the idea of a chastity belt is little more than folklore left over from the Victorian era. Surprise, surprise! Chastity belts are still alive and well!
The chastity belt was once widely used to prevent sexual activity and even masturbation from taking place. There were chastity belts for both males and females, despite the common misconception that chastity belts were just for women. Chastity belts were typically made from metal in the old days and were a locking device that could not be opened by its owner. Chastity belts were used by parents to preserve the virginity of their children, defying their hormonal urges to have sex before marriage.
Today virginity is still an issue between parents and their children. Most parents encourage their children to wait until marriage, even though it's more common not to. Many parents now give their children chastity rings, a reminder to be worn as a reminder to wait until marriage. While chastity rings aren't nearly as invasive as chastity belts, it's still a reminder from parent to child that sex shouldn't be something they are taking part in. Fortunately, many children understand the value of saving themselves until marriage and wear their chastity rings with pride.
The chastity belt seems to have come full circle as now it is being used for pleasure between couples. Many people willingly adorn a chastity belt, giving the key over to a chastity keyholder who has control over when the belt is taken off and sexual pleasure can be experienced. Husbands and wives, girlfriends and boyfriends, and even complete strangers are handing their sexual freedom over to a chastity keyholder.
While the chastity belt of today is said to be much more comfortable than it's ancient counterpart, allowing a chastity keyholder to decide when and how often you'll be allowed to take it off is something most of us would never consider. But, many people swear by this type of sexual situation, explaining that it intensifies the sexual experience when it does occur.
If you are looking for a chastity keyholder to try out this type of sexual activity, it's a good idea to give the key to someone you trust. It's a good idea for there to be an emergency key in the case of a medical emergency. But, if there isn't someone you can trust that you know, you can always hire your own chastity keyholder! Yes, you have to pay someone to be your keyholder, but at least you know that it will be a professional arrangement!
While most of us will never experience a chastity belt, there is a whole subculture that still employs the use of them. It's interesting, for sure, and if you decide to take part in it just remember to err on the side of caution and keep an emergency key for yourself! Just in case!
