Real or a Hoax? The Anti-Masturbation Cross Promises to Keep Kids Away From Their "Sin Zones"

The anti-masturbation cross made the rounds on the internet a couple of days ago and was even trending on Twitter along with the hashtag #StopSatan2014.

Thousands of people were duped by this very real (albeit totally ridiculous) looking contraption that would help keep kids' hands off of their "dangerous sin zones."

As one might imagine, reactions were mixed from praise for the supposed product to complete condemnation about what it might do to the mind of a child who was strapped into it.

Apparently, a lot of people were either too lazy (or too busy looking at internet porn) to actually do any digging to find out if the product was real or not. In fact, that website on the "ad" doesn't even exist.

When we saw it, we thought something seemed a little fishy. We don't judge anyone's beliefs or whether they would benefit from such a product or not, but the fact of the matter is, the anti-masturbation cross is a total fake. So, if a mysterious box arrives from Amazon and it's addressed to your parents, don't worry.

There is even a Facebook page for the fake campaign, which The Daily Dot reports was founded back in 2013 by a known professional prankster.

We have to say, they went to great lengths making the whole thing look real and it's definitely a fairly harmless hoax, but we still can't figure out why they even bothered.
