This terrifying contraption is called a ‘jugum penis.’ It was designed to prevent both masturbation and ‘nocturnal incontinence.’

Should a man become aroused in the middle of the night, this contraption would clamp down, extinguishing both his desire as well as his erection in a very sudden and painful way!

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.

The Victorian era, in all its prudish glory, became the ultimate era of repression, denial and sin. In fact, during this time, girls were restricted from riding horses or bicycles, sewing, and squatting down to do laundry because the feelings associated with these activities could turn a nice girl naughty.

Even cereal magnates Kellog and Graham jumped on the anti-mastrubation bandwagon, giving "the finger" to using ones hands.

Dr. John Kellogg, the creator of the ever popular Rice Krispies cereal. Both foods were developed to curb masturbatory impulses in young boys, as this health food movement postulated that bland foods were meant to increase health and decrease interest in sex.

Robert Baden-Powell, the founder of The Scout Association, incorporated a passage in the 1914 edition of Scouting for Boys warning against the dangers of masturbation. This passage stated that the individual should run away from the temptation by performing physical activity which was supposed to tire the individual so that masturbation could not be performed.

By 1930, however, Dr. F. W. W. Griffin, editor of The Scouter, had written in a book for Rover Scouts that the temptation to masturbate was "a quite natural stage of development" and, citing Ellis’ work, held that "the effort to achieve complete abstinence was a very serious error."

‘Close your eyes and think of England’, are sayings attributed to various Victorians either as their own comment on marital sexual relations or as advice from mothers to daughters on impending marriage.

In the Victorian era life was simpler; queens wore tiny crowns, heroin was legal and masturbation was apparently the greatest threat to life as they knew it.

Blamed for everything from insanity to acne, the people of this era spent a great deal of time and effort creating and patenting devices to protect us from this great evil, whether we wished to be saved or not.

The myths that masturbation leads to blindness, or causes you to grow hair on the palms of your hands, or will cause someone to be impotent later in life, or leads to mental illness, have all been debunked many times; but they seem to have a life of their own and crop up again and again.

In fact masturbating has been an almost universal practice since history has been recorded. Probably 90 percent of men have masturbated at some time (and many would say the other 10 percent are lying); and it is also very common among women, especially since women’s liberation began to enable women to know and appreciate their bodies.

In the early part of this century, John Harvey Kellogg gained a reputation both as a nutritionist and a sexual adviser. The foods that Kellogg created (including the now-famous corn flakes) were designed to promote health and decrease interest in sex.

Mr. Kellogg thought sex was the ultimate abomination and remained celibate even in marriage. Masturbation was the worst sin imaginable to him. He believed it led to leprosy, tuberculosis, heart disease, epilepsy, dimness of vision, insanity, idiocy, and death. He also preached that masturbation led to bashfulness in some people, unnatural boldness in others, a fondness for spicy foods, round shoulders, and acne. That’s quite a list!

As we all know now, there are most definitely foods that promote health, but none in particular that decrease interest in sex or masturbation. So, you can eat all the corn flakes you want, and have good, safe sex!

You lose stamina by masturbating?.

Many boys are told that masturbating will cause them to be less energetic at sporting activities. Quite simply, that’s not true. To be good at sports, continue to practice your game and eat healthy and don’t worry about your nocturnal activities.

Masturbation leads to pimples?.

This myth was probably started by some harrowed parent who wanted their teenage child to get out of the bathroom so someone else could use it. And what better way to get teenagers to do something that to appeal to their sense of vanity?

The truth is that acne and pimples are caused by oily skin and have nothing to do with masturbation.

We will run out of sperm?.

Relax, your sperm is not finite and your body produces millions of it everyday. By masturbating often, you will not run out.

Girls don’t masturbate?.

Yes they do. And there’s no shame in it.

The opposite – girls masturbate way more than boys.

Masturbation leads to homosexuality?.

Your sexual orientation does not depend on whether or not you masturbate.

Herbs To Stop Bad Breath

If you love to cook, you would love herbs. Using fresh, dried or crushed herbs in your cooking gives you a variety of flavoring choices. If you are familiar with the many uses of herbs you may already know that some everyday herbs can also be used to stop bad breath. Here are some of the following herbs commonly used as natural bad breath remedies.

Eucalyptus
Eucalyptus was first used by Australian aborigines who found water in the roots of the plant growing in the outback. Inhaling the fragrant eucalyptus oil can alleviate symptoms from illness and disease that cause excessive mucus, such as sinusitis, bronchitis, asthma, emphysema and whooping cough. The major component in the eucalyptus leaf is eucalyptol which is a very strong oil. Eucalyptus oil can cause a reaction similar to menthol, in that it impacts the nasal receptors and can help relieve nasal congestion.

There are some side effects from using eucalyptus internally, such as vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea. Eucalyptus should never be used with infants or children younger than two years old, since there is a risk of causing spasm in the airways, and even breathing cessation. To be safe, you should keep it away from young children. In addition, the oil can cause bronchial spasms in people suffering from and should be avoided by anyone with severe liver disease or any other inflammation disorders of the kidney or gastrointestinal tract.

Thyme
Thyme is a very fragrant herb that comes from the Mediterranean areas of southern Europe. Today it is widely cultivated throughout the United States. When dried, the leaves or flowering tops of the plant can be used as medicine. There are many beneficial characteristics of thyme, including its ability to prevent or alleviate cough, relieve spasms, and also as a mucus thinner or expectorant. When used either alone or in combination with other herbs, thyme continues to be a very common herb used for treating dry coughs and whooping cough. It has low toxicity, so thyme can be used to treat cough even for young children.

Keep in mind that while thyme may be safe to be used as described above, any type of severe cough, especially in an infant or young child, could be a symptom of something more serious and should be brought to the attention of a physician immediately in order to determine the best treatment.

Myrrh
In the ancient world, resin of myrrh with its reddish brown color, was employed to mummify corpses, preserve mummies. Myrrh was used widely as a remedy for a variety of infections, such as syphilis and leprosy. Ancient herbal doctors also suggested myrrh to treat bad breath and to help improve dental health. Three important constituents of myrrh are the resin, the gum, and the volatile oil. These three are considered to be key to its ability to provide medicinal qualities. Another feature of myrrh is its astringent qualities, which can help sooth inflammation in the throat and mouth. When used as indicated, myrrh is a perfectly safe herb to use.

Bloodroot
Bloodroot was used widely by Native Americans for both medicine and in tribal ritual. Dye made from bloodroot was incorporated into body paint. Bloodroot was used to treat cough, sore throat, rheumatic pain, and even certain types of cancer. The active compound in bloodroot is alkaloids. These are sometimes found in toothpaste and oral hygiene products due to their characteristic of inhibiting oral bacteria. The side effects of bloodroot include vomiting and nausea if taken improperly or in too great an amount.

Caraway
Caraway has been widely used as a medicinal herb for centuries. The caraway seed helps to aid digestion but can also ease digestive colic in children. Caraway is a type of herb known as carminatives, which are plants known to be helpful in relieving gastrointestinal pains.

Caraway is usually safe for internal consumption. Avoid using the purified volatile oil for children younger than two years of age, since as an oil from an herb in the Umbelliferrae family this can cause irritation to the skin and mucous membranes.

Peppermint
Like caraway, peppermint is also classified as a carminative herb. Peppermint has been commonly used as a digestive aid, and is used to treat indigestion and intestinal colic. Tea made from peppermint is safe for normal consumption, however peppermint oil used internally can cause gastrointestinal distress for some people.

Sage
Sage has a very long history of being used as both a medicinal herb and for culinary uses. Herbalists have used it externally to treat inflammation, swelling, sprains, ulcers, and bleeding. When used internally as a tea, sage is thought to successfully relieve sore throats and coughs, and even is used as a gargle.

Convulsions may result from using large quantities of sage, meaning several times as recommended above.

For all herbs, you should always consult your herbalist or doctor when in doubt. Use them appropriately and you will be surprised by their results they provide you.
