What do you suppose this delightful device was meant to prevent little boys from doing?
It would prevent them from growing into psychologically healthy adults.

That wouldn't have stopped me. Nothing would have stopped me when I was seventeen! It would have taken something supernatural!

But it appears that this was a device for very young, prepubescent boys, not teenagers. It was a very cruel Victorian contraption, since it was obviously meant to inhibit erection, something which no male, let alone a child, could control.

Couldn't the victorian women have used it as a strap on?

No. But that's a very interesting observation. Curious, huh?

Mat 27:50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.

Mat 27:51 And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;

Mat 27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,

Mat 27:53 And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.

Mat 27:54 Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.


And after this great earthquake, and after many dead people came alive again, crawled out of their fucking graves, and appeared to many, nobody bothered to mention it. Truly this was a crock of shit.
