Chastity Belt (with lock)
Chastity Belt replica collectible. Probably the most infamous form of contraception, the Chastity Belt proved to be a crude but effective means for medieval knights, nobles and gentry to ensure the fidelity of their wives and daughters. These cumbersome devices were sometimes used willingly by women who sought a means for protection against rape in times of war or during perilous journeys.

Chastity belts are surrounded by myths and folklore, the most common of which is that they were first used by crusading knights on their wives. Their actual use, however, is likely to have been quite limited; the crude metalworking of the times would have made it difficult to produce a belt safe for long-term wear. It also is not known whether or not these referred to actual physical devices in use.

The Bellifortis sketch.The first known mention of chastity belts in the West is in Konrad Kyeser von Eichstätt's Bellifortis, a book describing the military technology of the era. In it is included a rough drawing, accompanied by the text: 'Est florentinarum hoc bracile dominarum ferreum et durum ab antea sit reseratum.' ('These are hard iron breeches of Florentine women which are closed at the front.')

In 1889, a leather- and-iron belt was found by A. M. Pachinger—a German collector of antiquities—in Linz, Austria in a grave on a skeleton of a young woman. The woman was purportedly buried sometime in the 16th century. Pachinger, however, could not find any record of the woman's burial in the town archives. The belt itself, along with most of the rest of Pachinger's collection, has been lost. Two belts have been exhibited at the Musée de Cluny in Paris. The first, a simple velvet-covered hoop and plate of iron, was supposedly worn by Catherine de' Medici. The other— said to have been worn by Anna of Austria—is a hinged pair of plates held about the waist by metal straps, featuring intricately etched figures of Adam and Eve. There are other such belts at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum in Nuremberg and the British Museum in London. The authenticity of these exhibits as medieval devices has since been called into question.
