What sorts of devices have been selling well at the local adult toy shop these days? Would you believe chastity belts? For men?
Give Nikkan Gendai (March 5) the credit for coming up with this doozy.
“The users seem to be single women who are extremely possessive,” says “pink” industry journalist Yukio Murakami, explaining why lower decker pecker checkers have come into vogue all of a sudden.
“They can’t stop fretting that their lovers will cheat on them. So they make them wear chastity belts made with metal or plastic tubes that slip over the entire length of the glans, and can be fixed with a lock and key. It’s got an aperture at the tip to permit urination.”
With one of these gizmos in place, both sex and masturbation are rendered impossible. Their prices are said to range from 10,000 to 40,000 yen.
According to Murakami, another source of chastity belt business comes from housewives in their 30s and 40s who are engaged in clandestine love affairs.
“Many of them feel insecure because they’re unattractive and worry their boyfriends will be stolen by other women, so they buy the belts via mail order, and then insist their lovers wear them,” he adds. Hmmm, naruhodo. First mail order, then ordered males.
Nurses who work night shifts also favor such clampdowns on their boyfriends’ recreational activities.
As for chastity belts for females, one 25-year-old banker tells Nikkan Gendai the robust wrapper that he obliges his girlfriend to strap on comes in handy when the two ride the train to work.
“At the point where we go our separate ways, some pervert might single her out for a grope,” the man chuckles. “Imagine his surprise when he reaches down for a friendly fondle and his fingers make contact with solid metal.”
This particular chastity belt, the banker notes, was made to order by a skilled craftsman and is booby trapped.
“If you try to insert a finger from outside into the hole through which she pees, it triggers a spring that snaps shut, preventing the finger from being extracted,” he warns.
Imagine getting nailed at the knuckle while trying to nab some nookie. After the police are summoned to the scene, let’s see the chikan try to talk his way out of that one. (K.S.)
