Shocking Chastity Belt

Craft & Design


Artist Rachelle Beaudoin created this art performance chastity belt that shocks people when they touch it (but doesn’t shock her while wearing it). She used an off-the-shelf “shock your friends” gag toy circuits and extended the pertinent electrical leads using embroidered conductive thread on a vintage girdle. It was inspired by the film “That Obscure Object of Desire,” by Luis Bunuel. Thanks, Jeanne!

    still looks uncomfortable. maybe it’d be worth it to attempt to hide my baby belly. : )
