Well, some of us must have heard stories from the pages of the past in which the king would often lock up the genitals of their queens using metal protector, in order to protect their virginity or keep their chastity intact. Now it seems the history of the sort is repeated in Kenya, albeit in a reverse gender order. The men there are so scared of their wives chopping off their ‘manhood’ for infidelity that they have started using a unique metal inner wear which even has a lock to it. Surprised! It’s very true that a clothing shop in Nairobi (Kenya) has left tongues wagging after it displayed a mannequin wearing its new ‘manhood protective gear’ on its windows, made to help protect men from being sexually harassed by their wives.
The ‘manhood protective gear’, safely secured with iron padlock, are being sold for Sh 2,000 (US$ 20) as a protective measure for Kenyan men’s genitalia.
This invention could provide some relief for the local men especially the ones that are married to the Kenyan women, who have caused quite a stir for chopping off their unfaithful husbands or partners’ manhood as punitive punishment for infidelity.
The practicality of this chastity belt on the other hand is dubious. One wonders whether the belt itself is also made of iron. If it’s made from any type of material that can be easily cut, that’d defeat the whole purpose of protection. The other thing that is disturbing is how the man will be able to walk around in the heavy, iron lock-laden protective gear.
There are few cases where the women had in the past reportedly caused hurt to men’s private parts. One of them is facing trial in the court for chopping off a man’s genitals. Moreover, there is one more reason behind the conflict that men in Nairobi are gradually getting addicted to the cheap liquor and they could not perform on bed after the booze. This often makes wives furious and they commit the ‘extreme act’.
