There are a lot of discussions that have come up concerning chastity and why it is considered a virtue. Before we get some more in-depth insights lets us start with the basic understanding of chastity being a virtue.
Virtues are deemed to be the foundation of good moral being. Various virtues are considered as acceptable in society. They can also be derived from religious teachings to safeguard to regulate people’s behavior. Virtues are also used to identify someone’s personality because it gives a holistic image. Well, Morality is very essential in contemporary society. This involved instilling codes of conduct to the young generation so that they can leave a moral lifestyle.
Well, in this case, chastity is often perceived as abstinence from premarital sex. Chastity can be considered as abstinence because most biblical teachings and any other religious explanation about chastity emphasizes on staying pure before marriage. Most teenagers perceive this as an outdated lifestyle which is not practical. However, the relevance of chastity is to prevent sexual misconduct which can lead to frustration and depression. Chastity helps in preventing premature pregnancy among teenagers which is a big problem in society. Most teenagers end up terminating the pregnancy because they are not able to raise the child or to formalize their relationship.
Additionally, the virtue of chastity prevents the contraction of deadly diseases such as HIV/ AIDS and other STDs which can be fatal. In some cases, victims of these infections end up spending a lot of money on medical bills while others might end up in death. Therefore sexual purity as its standards that should be upheld. Most religious teachings uphold chastity to be away from a living godly lifestyle.
This is because of sexual immorality not in accordance with religious teachings. When chastity is upheld in society the teenagers will grow up knowing what is right from what is wrong. The complexity of morality that is being faced today is as a result of not observing chastity when it is appropriate.
Therefore this should be a virtue that is taught so that it can be a personal decision whether someone is under supervision or not. In this case, someone is considered to have observed chastity when he can manage to control sexual desires that could lead to immoral behavior. Well, as this is seen as a way of preventing sexual problems there are some cases when chastity can be forced. The big question is will forced chastity be also considered as a virtue or it will be bondage meant to control someone’s behavior.
What is forced chastity
Forced chastity is imposing regulations or restrictions to make someone live in chastity. This implies the person is restricted from having sexual partners for some time until the person who is imposing the restriction feels that it is the right time. For instance, a parent may impose forced chastity on the children because of the fear of premarital pregnancy or having multiple sexual partners when the children are tender in age.
According to psychology, a virtue is a good behavior which is based on personal decision. In such a case it is an inbuilt principle that guides the person whether he is under someone’s supervision or not.
Forced chastity has the same goals as personal chastity because at the end of the day the ultimate goal is preventing sexual immorality. However, in such a case forced chastity involves strictness which can also involve the use of devices to prevent one from engaging in sex.
Some people have capitalized on the use of software to track the locations of people who are under forced chastity. Others have used lockable devices to prevent one from having sex.
Therefore imposing Forced chastity is not a guarantee that someone will practice chastity when left alone. This is a temporary solution. If someone as crafty behavior will do what as per his sexual desires especially when he is not under regulations. That disqualifies was just from being a virtue. Forced chastity features some elements based on bondage which is against someone’s free will.
Chastity has a lot of benefits especially by ensuring the society is living upright. This is to prevent immorality such as premarital sex adultery masturbation and other forms of sexual immorality. When chastity is maintained there will be less likelihood of sexual immorality.
10 Commandments Of Male Chastity For The Chaste Male!!
Your keyholder is your owner and as such they own every part of you and your body and in return you must love and obey them. Your keyholder is entitled to determine which parts of your body are used, and when they are used. With this in mind, your owner has every right to secure your penis in some form of chastity device of both of your choosing. Your owner may lock you up at any time they choose, and for however long they deem in necessary.
Your owner does not need to provide you with any justification or reason in order to secure you in a chastity device. Your only concern is that your owner wants to, and that by itself is reason enough. Whether you want to be secured or not, has no relevance to the situation as per the agreement made in your relationship and Chastity Document.
Under no circumstances (excepting in health and safety emergencies) are you permitted to attempt to remove, alter, or bypass the chastity device with which you have been secured. You, under the terms of the relationship with which you have agreed to, are fully obligated to co-operate with your owner in the fitting of the chastity device and help your owner in the securement of your manhood. You must draw your owners attention to any fault in the device which may impact on its functionality so that your owner can ensure that the device performs as it is intended to perform.
It is your responsibility and duty to keep yourself clean and care for in the area of your manhood so that the wearing of the device is not impeded through health concerns. Following regular cleaning and care, you can continue to be locked up for as long as your owner demands it of you. This is inclusive to the submission of prostate milking so that you can be cleaned internally as well.
You must remember that your owner has locked up your manhood for the precise reason that you can no longer play with yourself or achieve an erection or orgasm. Your manhood is no longer there for your pleasure, but for your owners. Your sole duty is to carry them around for your owner. If erections cause discomfort, then don’t do it.
It is your duty and obligation to inform your owner of your experiences whilst wearing the device. You should regularly look at your chastity cage in order to remind yourself of the pleasures that you once had that were in your control and which are now locked away from you. You should let your owner know how you feel, as they may enjoy hearing about your suffering and longing.
Your owner, in the form of humiliation and subject to your agreement, is entitled to remind you about your inability to obtain an erection, get any form of sexual release. Your owner has taken that away from you and chooses to enjoy that teasing. Your owner can get satisfaction at any time that they want, whereas you cannot. Your owner will find this amusing and want to remind you about this continually.
Dependent on the agreement that you have signed, your secret is not entitled to remain a secret. If your owner chooses to tell people about the chastity device, your owner may do so.
Your owner is allowed to provide stimulation to you in any form that they see fit. This may be include, but not be limited to, exposure to erotic imagery and material, direct physical contact.
It is your duty to take pleasure in the idea that your owner takes time from their day in order to control the use of their property and that this will give them amusement. You should always be thankful for having your owner to secure you in a chastity device and you should always be letting them know how thankful you are for that. You should demonstrate this by being attentive and loyal.
Because of this you should take pleasure in the fact that your owner takes the time to control the use of her property and happy that it gives her some amusement. You should always thank her for securing you in chastity and let her know how grateful you are to have your genitals locked up under her control. You should always be happy if she decides to extend your time in chastity and tell her how much you like to continue being emasculated.
Four Commandments For The Key Holder:-
A key Holder should not have time to play mind games. The fact that they have a key should be indication that they are in charge.
There is no room for obscure power games, or power plays, or even petty maneuvering, the key holder is the key holder and that is the power that they have and are limited to.
A key holder has not right and is not entitled to resort to any form of abusive behaviour not outlined in the in the agreement of the relationship. They are not entitled to name calling, to put you down, belittle or physically abuse you in any form. There are always hack saws!
The keyholder should remember that if they want something – then they should clearly state their needs and demands. Key Holders should not sulk, they should not confront their chaste male with such phrases as
‘You Should Have Remembered’
‘How Could You Forget’.
There is no room for obscure mind games in chastity. Gone are the days when chastity and bondage was frowned upon as an alternate lifestyle choice and many partakers now use it as a form of art.
Let’s go through some of the themes surrounding the idea of sexual chastity devices and we will do this through an exploration of male chastity devices. Chastity has become an increasingly popular sexual practice, whereby the sexual power of one individual is placed into another. Chastity results in one member of the relationship holding the power to sexual release and climax, and there are many psychological aspects which are placed onto this sexual practice which we will explore. From there we will look at some of the types of devices, how to pick a device that best suits your needs, and the care and maintenance of both the device and the wearer.
Extended chastity device use poses its own risks and merits and these need to be carefully explored, and you will find medical articles here that not only explain the science of male chastity, but also the potential dangers as well. One of the most common questions when it comes to chastity devices, is what interests people in partaking in chastity practices? Put simply it concerns an exchange of power. Where some BDSM practices result in physical restraints, or psychological restraining through a dominant and submissive relationship – chastity exists through the combination of these, as well as uniquely seeing the restraining of sexual experiences.
Chastity sex toys are thought to have existed for a lot longer than people realize. Like most BDSM practices it was often thought to have originated from Medical and Victorian practices, indeed the idea of chastity was said to have risen to prominence within the 18th Century, though it had been said to have existed for a time before that. Chastity devices are often viewed by the general population as a sexually restrictive device worn by women – this idea stems from social roles of men and women, during an age when women were suffering from oppression. This thought can be witnessed through the Middle Age contextual thought of a lord or knight leaving his woman securely ‘bolted up’ while he went off to have to war, or campaign missions to serve the Aristocracy.
It’s difficult not to think that this might have solved half the problems in Westeros and Game of Thrones, but then we’d be missing some of the more important story lines. Whilst we can’t deny that such gadgets did exist and were probably used, most illustrations and ‘authentic’ period pieces which are to be found in exhibition halls are currently viewed by specialists as fakes – generally made in the nineteenth century to titillate guests. That’s right, current research into chastity devices has thrown concerns and doubts as to when and where the chastity devices actually grew in popularity.
The Secret History Of Chastity:-
The history of chastity is often said to be so secret that no-one actually knew that it existed! The chastity belt has long been associated with women in the Middle Ages to prevent sexual intercourse as a form of enforcing loyalty and preventing infidelity when knights and warriors went off to fight on behalf of the Aristocracy. However, researchers have discovered that there is no evidence of chastity device in verified Medieval texts, a fact which has caused much curiosity and puzzlement among historians and researchers. Therefore, the question becomes, if they didn’t exist in medieval times, where has the chastity belt come from?
Albrecht Classenis a self-proclaimed expert of Chastity devices and has published a book titled ‘The Medieval Chastity Belt: a Myth-making Process'(Palgrave Macmillan, 2007). He has determined in this book that the first mention of the chastity device occurred on a treatise concerning siege machines written by an alleged German Engineer and artist, Konrad Kyese. This document, entitled Bellifortis, is thought to have been written around 1405 and contained detailed images about siege weapons, Alexander the Great, and a variety of mythical and fantastical instruments for torture and war. The thing that concerns Classen however, is that whilst there is an image for a chastity device in this work, there are also a number of crude jokes concerning flatulence, and ‘magical’ devices thought to make people disappear. In other words, not everything in this work is to be taken seriously.
The concept for the chastity belt was added as an afterword in his document, and Classen argues that this had originally been intended as an imaginative joke. The joke however seems to have stuck and continued on as an entertaining and popular subject of humour and satire. Classen goes on to support this by writing in his book that,
“No Author Of Sermon Literature, Of Penitentiary Texts, Or Didactic And Legal Writers Has Ever Mentioned The Chastity Belt Probably Because Already The Basic Idea Behind It Defies The Basic Needs Of The Human (Female) Body.”
In essence, we see Classen arguing that there is a distinct lack of any form of reliable historical reference or evidence that the chastity device was worn as an undergarment, and further, if on the off chance that it was, that there is exceptionally little logic to support their existence. In a world where illness and disease ran rife, the idea that rough, hard and metallic objects could be worn like this without causing illness or infection defies belief. This is an argument that is also supported by historical experts at the Semmelweis Museum, a museum which ran an exhibition of the History of Chastity devices in 2010.
A 16th Century historian and a curator for the Tutbury Castle in Staffordshire England also agrees with Classen. In the British Medical Journal, Lesley Smith wrote an article in 2007 which stated that she has extensively traveled the word and examined a variety of art collections, and historical pieces, and she has yet to have seen a chastity belt that can conclusively be proven to have originated from the Medieval period. Smith also is of the belief that the ‘joke’ stuck, because the concept is understandable given the context of social beliefs concerning sex and sexuality at the time. Medieval Europe was a period in which any form of sexual activity that was not related to conception was a sin and ultimately forbidden. A chastity device fits into this contextual belief which has resulted in historians, researchers and studies concerning the chastity device, to fail to notice the allegorical and satirical humour behind the device, instead resulting in the proclamation that the chastity device was real.
Sarah Bond, an assistant Professor at the University of Iowa, has suggested something slightly different. Whilst she acknowledges that the metallic devices were probably rarely used, or considered jokes by the Victorians, she does suggest that there are social practices which precede the chastity belts as a way of explaining them. Bond explains that Chastity Belts actually originated in Ancient Rome. Brides in Ancient Rome would wear a corded belt to symbolize one’s chastity, and would later be taken off by her husband. As such, the idea that a belt would signify modesty and chastity, was a social practice that continued throughout the Middle Ages, and ultimately might be the reason for the joke.
The once fabric corded belt could have evolved into a belt ornately designed with metal to symbolize chastity and to separate the idea between the working class (fabric belt) and the upper class (metal belt). This belt was worn around the hips, as opposed to around the female genitals. Most of the historians concerning female chastity devices continually refer back to same point; that the idea of a chastity device had intended to be a joke, and a failure to acknowledge this is seen as being consistent with a practice with in which modern historians and researchers partook in to conjure a more ‘barbaric’ version of Medieval society than what had actually existed in truth.
Regardless of whether you subscribe to the idea that chastity devices are a great joke, or whether you believe that they originated from Ancient Roman customs, or even if you believe that they have existed and that historians have attempted to cover up a great sex joke – one cannot deny that they have ultimately morphed into a popular sexual fetish. Though it really wasn’t until the introduction of the world-wide web until these devices became more popular to zest up a sexual relationship.
Even now they can be used in averting masturbation, as well as denying sexual activity to anyone other than the holder of the key to the chastity device – the key holder being the primary person (usually a dominant) who had the key to the chastity toy and could unlock the partner for sexual activity at any point that they chose. Male chastity devices all have two things in common; the first being that they are designed to prevent an erection. They do this by either having a short cage which barely fits a flaccid penis, or (especially useful for those with large flaccid cocks) an angled piece whereby the angle is so sharp that an erection is impossible. Second, they are designed to be locked up by the key holder or their partner in order to prevent tampering.
Male Chastity Devices are designed for people that don’t trust their partner, like a little more control in their relationship such as mistress and slave/master and slave relationships, long distance relationships or for people entering into the world of BDSM.
These days there are so many different styles and variations of styles it is sometimes difficult to be keeping up to date with the latest of chastity toys specifically for men in a wide variety of styles and that will suit your specific needs. If you need a cage that can be easily cleaned whilst still being worn, we can point you in the right direction, if you need a cage that’s a little bit more torturous than most, our friends at the cockringshop will have it. There are also specific cages that can be used with piercings – and they stock those as well. All your chastity toys will come with a unique lock and key and then all you have to do is ensure the safety of that key by putting it in a safe place (many people with chastity devices like to put the key around a necklace chain or an ankle chain so that it is within plain site of their partner but it still can’t be touched. What a tease!
Chastity devices may not be used to enforce fidelity as it was once thought to have done, though we do acknowledge that some people use them this way for that specific purpose, but they are used as a form of exchanging power. Indeed, in a great social back-flip, chastity devices have switched the focus onto being worn by males as opposed to females! So, take a journey of chastity devices, and we promise you, unlike the ones that are in museums – these ones aren’t fake!
