The Jugum PenisIt was once believed that masturbation was not only unhealthy, but that nocturnal emissions are a disease (they even had a name for the disease -- "Spermatorrhoea."
Men in the Victorian era really were caught in a ruthless circle. You're looking at it on the left, over there.
The Jugum Penis was intended to cure "spermatorrhoea", a Victorian-era name for nocturnal emissions. The device was fashioned out of a metal ring, which would fit at the base of the penis and was attached with a clip, which already explains why you never see any paintings of dudes from the Victorian Era with a smile.
Essentially how it worked was you were fine unless you got at ALL aroused (or unless you were a shower).
The Jugum Penis was barbaric, as it was quite literally a bear trap for erections, which meant, unfortunately, that men in those times had to choose between white stains on their bedsheets in the morning and red ones.1 of 10
