The emergence of the Male Chastity....
Unlike female chastity belts, the development of the male chastity
belt or device has been much
easier to follow. It's history is
much more recent and can be
traced through patients records. Between the 1850s and the
beginning of the Second World
War male chastity devices were developed for the purpose of
preventing masturbation which
the Victorian's believed was a
cause of insanity.
It is at this point where we can
see a distinct difference between
male and female chastity belts
The Victorian view of the female
chastity belt was to protect the
wearer from rape, and where
therefore considered as a method
However male chastity belts
and devices were developed to
prevent "self abuse", "self
pollution", "nocturnal emissions"
and "insanity, imbecility and feeble mindedness" which were
considered to be the natural fate
of any young man with lax moral attitudes!
Today's modern stainless steel
chastity belt was developed
by improving upon the Florentine
design by Hal Higginbottom in the
late 1950s. Since 1958 Hal
produced male and female chastity
belts from his workshop in Sheffield, England, under the brand name of Tollyboy.
His craftsmanship was of excellent quality and his belts were
considered to be the "Rolls Royce"
of chastity belts. It is Hal
Higginbottom who was credited
with bringing the chastity belt into
the 20th Century.
However, due to demand and the increased interest in chastity, Hal
had a long waiting list and his speed
of production seemed slow to the
eager, impatient buyer. With the
demand for chastity belts
increasing others were encouraged
to manufacturer belts. The Tollyboy
design was adapted in the USA
by Jones and Access Denied
(01/07/1997), and in Germany by Neosteel.
Hal Higginbottom became very ill
with respiratory problems, and passed away on 21/05/98. Today
the Tollyboy name lives on with Richard Davies (apprentice to Hal) continuing to produce the
"Florentine" design, made to measure, steel chastity belts for
men and women.
Since the late 1990s the availability
of male chastity devices is much
higher. Major Players have been
Frank & Doris Miller who launched
the CB-2000 in 1998. It was the
world's first easily available
hygienic male chastity device.
The Millers have since gone from strength to strength adding the
Curve to their range for the "larger"
man and in August 2003 introduced
the third design the CB-3000.
World-wide sales of the CB-3000 currently far out weigh any other
As you will see from viewing our
pages there is now a wide choice
of male chastity devices, with
noticeable differences in design. However, in comparison little advancement has been made to
the female belt, the basic design remain the same.
Male chastity devices are now
readily available from many
specialist on line shops. We recommend that when purchasing
you look for those shops and web
sites, which know something about chastity, and will be able to help
you with any problems you may initially have.
