In various manifestations, chastity belts have been used in the Renaissance to compel the faithfulness of a few wives of rich men, in the 19th century to prevent male masturbation or "nocturnal emissions", and in recent times (along with general chastity devices) as part of BDSM play or lifestyles. However, most claimed pre-19th-century chastity belt specimens shown in museums are 19th-century forgeries.
