Chastity belts, courting tubes, and bundling boards are among the many, erm, interesting inventions that made their way across Europe and into the United States to keep intimacy to a minimum. So what is a bundling board? According to Dr. Michaela Kleber, a historian of the early United States at Northwestern University, a bundling board was a tool that helped facilitate bundling—an 18th century practice of pre-marital bed-sharing that lower and middle class families in British North American colonies would take part in.

Bundling allowed young couples and in some cases, visitors to share a bed and practice intimacy. But clothes were worn, and oftentimes a bundling board would come into play to literally draw the line.

There are some images out there that portray bundling boards as slabs of wood, but in other cases, bundling bags were used, which were basically makeshift cloth sleeping bags. Bundling was most popular in the 18th century in the British North American colonies, according to Dr. Melissa is a freelance writer who covers home decor, beauty, and fashion.
