Some notes about books
The book "Das Band der Venus - Die Geschichte des
Keuschheitsguertels" is about the history of chastity belts
It is written by Alexander Schulz, Copyright 1984
by Andreas Schulz Verlag, 7972 Isny/Allgaeu, Riedbachstrasse 19,
Germany. (The ZIP-code is not valid anymore, I don't know if the
book is still available) There is no ISBN. 67 pages with 22
Norbert's remark about the book by Feldhaus is correct
I've found about 8 pages text and 8 pictures in "Illustrierte
Sittengeschichte". I've only seen a shortened reprint published in
the 70s or 80s as a set of 6 paperbacks, in the original print might
be more. The book was written by Eduard Fuchs, first published
in Berlin, Germany 1909.
There are some more books like the one by Fuchs in which chastity belts
are mentioned, but the other ones I've seen do not contain more than one
or two pages about the topic.
Different to the above listed books there are novels and stories
about chastity belts. You might find some stories in sex shops but
there seem to be not so many novels which you could buy in normal
The story by Pitigrilli is the only one of them I've got.
He describes a man who is fascinated by the chastity belts
in Cluny. But unable to get such a device he uses three men who
watch each other as a living "chastity belt" for his wife.
Another category of books are the ones written in former times.
There is the French book "La vie des dames galantes" by Brantome, who
reports about a merchant selling chastity belts. (First printed ca. 1616)
And of course the "Kyeser-Kodex", 1405, showing the oldest know picture.
Unlike the books there seem to be many stories in which a chastity belt
is mentioned (but I do not know a single one describing chastity belts).
Most of the films are quite silly.
Some of the films on your page could be seen in German TV:
- "The Chastity Belt - On my way to the Crusades ..." as "Der
- "Everything You Always Wanted To Know ..." as "Was Sie schon immer
ueber Sex wissen wollten ... aber bisher nicht zu fragen wagten"
- "Robin Hood: Men In Thights" as "Robin Hood: Maenner in Strumpfhosen"
- "Up the Chastity Belt" as "Runter mit dem Keuschheitsguertel"
- "Die Stossburg" by Franz Marischka. A German film about a knight
pretending to go to the crusades but only wents to the next castle
to have fun. Before leaving his wife, his nearly grown up daughter and
his female servant are locked into iron chastity belts. The film was
broadcasted several times by a German TV station. Two of the belts can
be seen quite long. Screen shots
- "Das Spukschloss im Spessart" with Liselotte Pulver. In a scene a knight
leaving for the crusades locks his wife in a chastity belt, but she steals
the key before he is out of the door. The film has been on German TV
several times. The iron belt is showed for some seconds only.
- "Hattu Keuschheitsguertel muttu knabbern" in which an artist pretends an
interest to paint a young female without clothing but she has been locked
into a chastity belt. The film might have been published under a different
name and might be of Italien origin. The German version could be seen on
video. The belt seems to be leather with some metal parts between
the legs of the woman.
- There is a Western about a man, who made Chinese letters as tattoos on
the backsides of some prostitutes. By reading all these letters a treasure
could be found. One of the women now lives with a Reverend who keeps her

The iron chastity belt is shown for some seconds.
- "High Crusade - Frikassee im Weltraum". A German film with Ray Cokes
based on the novel by Poul Anderson. An UFO comes down near a castle in
medieval times. The knight and his men conquer it. The knight plans to use
the UFO for a crusade but his wife only supports the plan if all the
inhabitants of the castle are admitted to come on board and the knight
is willing to wear a chastiy belt to which she has the key. Later the
belt saves the parts of the knight from being damaged in a battle.
The film could be seen in Cinemas, on TV and on video in the 90s. The
iron chastity belt is shown for some seconds. In the book the belt is
- There is a film about a man leaving his wife locked in a chastity belt.

the metal belt is shown quite long.

his wife's chastity belt. He is quite horny but is stopped by the belt.
He has lost the key. On his way back from the locksmith from whom he lent

goes after the girl. Could be seen on German TV several years ago.

several chastity belts with English descriptions. It is underlined with
"Der Keuschheitsguertel, seine Form, sein Gebrauch (Anzeige eines
amerikanischen Films "Olgas Maedchen")". In the Internet Movie Database
Ltd. I've found the film "Olga's Girls" USA 1964 by Joseph P. Mawra.
