Definition of chastity belt in English:
A garment or device designed to prevent a woman from having sexual intercourse.
- ‘I should think a chastity belt might be a good start,’ said Carolyn.
- Virginity doesn't imply being locked up with a chastity belt - today virginity means having respect for your body.
- Unlike the chastity belt, which functions literally to lock up the wife's private parts, the marriage girdle functions in a figurative sense, as a sign that the woman is off limits for other men's use.
