Chastity lock
A chastity lock was used by some people in ancient times to protect the chastity of the wife when her husband was not around. After putting the chastity belt of leather, around the woman's waist, the husband locks it with a lock and key. It covers only the vagina completely. Therefore, there was no problem in attending nature’s call. These locks were mostly used by men going for wars and so on. A woman is not able to remove it on their own. If it was removed or damaged, it was confirmed then that she was into an illegal relationship.

Usually, the chastity lock was made of leather, but depending on the financial situation, gold, silver and brass were used instead of leather. Some believe that during the industrial revolution in Europe, women workers donned similar armor to protect themselves from lecherous masters in factories. However, majority believe that it was just a concept.
