By: DAILY MAIL REPORTER (March 25, 2009) in DailyMail.com

British Anti-Masturbation Device (Late 19-Century)

  • “In the West, until quite recently, masturbation, particularly among males, was thought to rob the body of vital fluids and energy. This model was worn as a codpiece and was designed to be worn under clothes.”

Jugum Penis

  • “This evil-looking contraption was designed to waken a male sleeper should an erection occur. It was part of the drive against the ‘moral weakness’ that was masturbation, which was thought to be a source of mental and physical ill health.”

Domestic Enema Machine

  • “In certain credulous circles, it was thought that squirting various liquids up your bottom would rejuvenate the body and even revive a flagging sex life. Today the same practice, now known as ‘colonic irrigation’ is once again fashionable among certain classes.”

“Before the modern era, to be seriously ill was to enter a world of almost unimaginable pain, misery and often grotesque medical ignorance. The diseases were bad enough, but the treatments were often far worse.”
