If you are going buy something to add to your ToyBox perhaps it is wise to buy quality rather than quantity. A flogger with no balance and made from inferior leather that turns to the consistency of dried spagetti after one use is hardly a good investment. “Oh but it was cheap” I hear you say, “and easily replaced”. Well after you have replaced it a couple of times you could in fact had a good quality one. It is a bit like buying Chinese tools…and then actually using them to construct a Carlo Bugatti Chair. No hope at all.
These are sexy illustrations of Starlets Wielding dangerous weapons. Slaughterhouse Starlets is an illustrated series by designer Keith P. Rein. The illustrator’s set of images, of which there are only six so far, feature a violent version of some of today’s leading ladies; including Emma Stone, Zooey Deschanel and Emma Watson. Each femme fatale is equipped with a different deadly weapon and it looks like they’ve already taken the liberty of using them as each frame appears to be splattered with bloodstains. From wielding a hatchet and toting a battle axe to revving up a chainsaw and getting hands on with a pair of brass knuckles, these ladies are prepared for a zombie apocalypse and ready to fend for themselves.
Killian Skarr is a sculptor from Akron, Ohio who creates primitive devices of torture from wood, found hardware and leather using a chainsaw and a blowtorch, among other tools. His art has been seen at a number of shows, most notably the Dirty show 11 in Detroit. His two largest sculptures (weighing together around half a ton and currently crowding out his living room) were featured on stage during the Halloween fetish playland in Cleveland, and will be featured again at the upcoming Organgrinders ball at the Cleveland House of Blues, and at the Dirty Show 12. Let’s enjoy the pure, sexual, arousing and dangerous art from great artist Killian Skarr.
A primitive torture device is a morbidly rendered carapace, designed to achieve maximum psychological disturbance, carved into a form intended for the function of restraint and torture. This device is composed of sinister, organic structures imposed upon wood and leather and metal by the obscure and bizarre methods of Killian Skarr. A primitive torture device is a thing which persists in space and time like a perversion upon this world. But its existence preceded its physical manifestation deep within the insanity of Killian Skarr. An aesthetic is achieved that is dark, organic, and fractal, it is a twisting and arching in skeletal form, and each serves the sadistic function to restrain and torture the human body.
Infernal Restraints is a successor to the legendary BDSM site Insex. Insex was one of the biggest BDSM websites on the Internet and arguably the most extreme American pornographic production featuring female submissives. It was also a leading innovator in both live video streaming, pioneering the concept before broadband Internet access existed, and in the depiction of BDSM practices on the Internet. Insex developed a cult following among BDSM enthusiasts due to its uncommonly severe and realistic depiction of sadomasochistic practices. It was also known for its interactive “Live Feeds” which allowed members to make direct suggestions and requests. It existed from 1997 to 2005 and was run by “Intersec Interactive Inc.”, a company owned by the website’s creator, Brent Scott, former Carnegie Mellon professor, Dom and bondage legend known as “PD”. Many prominent names in fetish modeling either started at Insex or passed through it at one point in their career, as did bondage riggers including such figures as Claire Adams, Cyd Black, Princess Donna and Matt Williams, who all went on to work for the internet pornography company Kink.
In the fall of 2005, Insex announced it was looking for a buyer, because “continuing to produce Insex from the U.S. would be too great a potential liability.” It came as a result of attempts by the U.S. government to limit internet pornography, specifically by implementing a FBI anti-obscenity initiative in August 2005; an FBI memorandum stated that productions where the content includes “urination, defecation, as well as sadistic and masochistic behavior” would “most likely” be legally targeted. So in 2005 Insex ended the production of original BDSM material. But in the same year Brent Scott started to create two new BDSM themed web sites, named Hardtied and Infernal Restraints, so Scott would have an avenue to continue to produce and sell content for the web. Infernal Restraints is the Source of original extreme device bondage porn from the creators of Insex and bondage legend PD.
The rack is probably one of the most infamous torture devices since it was in use for a very long time. This device was more of an actual machine than anything. No torture chamber would be complete without the rack, known throughout the world by different names: to the Romans it was “equuleus” (young horse); the French named it “Banc de Torture”, to the Spanish it was “escalera” (ladder), Germany knew it as “Streckbank” (stretching frame) or “Schlimme Liesel” (fearful Eliza), Italians named it “La Veglia” and the British nickname was “the Duke of Exeter’s Daughter”. Whatever the name, it was a fearsome device that broke countless prisoners. Indeed, a person stretched on the rack presented the ultimate spectacle of the body in pain. A victim would often be placed on the rack naked or nearly so, and their taut skin would run with the sweat of their agonies.
Probably the most widely used instrument of torture, the rack is to date back to the ancient Greeks. The basic idea of the rack may have originated in the Greek legend of the giant bandit Procrustes. It was rumored that he possessed a bed made of iron that was the right size for any guest. After luring unwary travelers to sleep on the iron bed, he would stretch them to fit – tall travelers had their legs or head lopped off and fed to a giant tortoise. The rack was used since antiquity, being used on St. Vincent and mentioned by the Church Fathers Tertullian (on extraction of confessions from criminals and on persisting Christian “sacrilegers” against the state religion) and St. Jerome (used on a woman according to his first letter).
For over 30 years, the Hitachi has set the standard for personal hand-held massagers. The Hitachi Magic Wand is an electric massager manufactured by Hitachi intended for massaging muscles, as well as erogenous zones. This is a massage instrument designed to reach all those difficult to reach places and give nearly instantaneous relief to tired, sore muscles. But the Hitachi can give you a nice massage as well as a nice orgasm.
The Hitachi Magic Wand first appeared in the 1970s – widely used as a sex toy. It is always advertised as “the strongest vibrator we carry”. This is the most powerful vibration available and one of the most durable sex toys ever made. Many people have had their Hitachi’s for over 10 years and they are still going strong. Some physicians recommend it for women to increase genital sensitivity and enhance arousal.
The Hitachi Magic Wands are wonderful, and evil, toys. It’s strong enough that it works through clothing, but also works with direct contact. You can use it on someone and turn pleasure into torture. Its fantastic for forced orgasms, orgasm denial, use with nipple clamps etc.
The garrote, also known as garrote vil, garotte and garrotte – the execution device used by the Spaniards until the end of Francisco Franco’s dictatorship as recently as 1974. In Spain, it was abolished, as well as the death penalty, in 1978 with the new constitution. Originally, it was an execution where the convict was killed by hitting him with a club (“garrote” in Spanish). Later, it was refined and consisted of a seat to restrain the condemned person while the executioner tightened a metal band around his neck with a crank or a wheel until suffocation of the executee. With the handle the executioner slowly crushed the victim’s neck causing death from asphyxia.
This device has a Spanish name because it was improved in Spain. It is not clear how complete earlier records are and even modern ones are somewhat patchy. But at least 736 people, including 16 women, were executed in Spain in the 19th century. 65 men and 2 women were executed by garroting between 1950 and 1974 in various parts of Spain. The first woman to be garroted was Juana Rivero in Madrid on the 3rd of November 1824 for robbery. Twenty seven year old Mariana Pineda became the first woman to suffer for treason when she was executed on the 26th of May 1831 in Andalusia. It was reported that the spike of the garrote pierced her neck and protruded through her mouth. Garroting was last used on the 2nd of March 1974, when two men were executed on the same day for the shooting of a police officer during a robbery.
Chastity belt – any device intended to prohibit contact with or stimulation of the genitals. They may be used to protect the wearer from rape or temptation. Some devices have been designed with additional features to prevent masturbation. Today it is used in dominant/submissive and sadomasochistic relationships by people as a sexual toy. This article is dedicated only to female chastity belts.
According to modern myth the chastity belt was used as an anti-temptation device during the Crusades. When the knight left for the Holy Lands on the Crusades, he would force his Lady to wear a chastity belt to preserve her faithfulness to him. Unfortunately the chastity belt is not a medieval invention but a product of the over-active 19th Century imagination. There is no credible evidence that chastity belts existed before the 15th century, more than one hundred years after the last Crusade. There are, in fact, no genuine chastity belts dating from medieval times: all known ‘medieval’ chastity belts have been produced in the first half of the 19th Century. Most of the ‘medieval’ chastity belts on display in museums have been tested to confirm their actual age. These fake-medieval chastity belts are too heavy and the workmanship is too crude, even for medieval standards. The oldest design for a chastity belt that can be taken seriously dates from the 16th Century – but it’s just a design, with no real working models believed to have ever been constructed. The concept of a chastity belt itself is a lot older, but it was usually used in poems in a metaphorical sense.
The Collector is horror movie rated R for pervasive sadistic bloody violence, language and some sexuality/nudity. The Collector is torture porn, the new face of the horror genre. It’s not for the weak of spirit or for the faint of heart. It sets a new standard for sadism in American cinema.
In many ways, The Collector feels like another installment in the Saw series. In The Collector, as in the Hostel and Saw movies, the tension of the chase takes second place to the graphic violence of the actual torture. This movie scrapes the bottom of the torture porn barrel by presenting torture for the sake of torture.
The pitch is simple: a workman named Arkin (Josh Stewart) returns to the house he has been working on to steal a valuable gem from the safe. When he gets there, he realizes he has company: a silent invader, wearing the leather mask, has filled the house with traps, locked the doors and windows, and is in the process of torturing the residents to death. Although he’s a burglar, Arkin is also something of a hero and he creeps through the house, one step ahead of the Collector (Juan Fernandez), trying to rescue the occupants. In a nightmarish hour, Arkin faces the moral dilemma of finishing his burglary and saving his own skin, or trying to save this family that employed him. They’re prisoners inside their own home – bloodied and doomed if Arkin doesn’t make the right choice.
The place looks to be over a century old, shrouded in a cluster of large oak trees. Threatening dark clouds and thunder signal that another rainstorm is going to hit, so you quickly make your way up the long gravel road to the front porch. A knock on the door reveals that there is no one home. The windows are boarded up; the roof and sides of the house are riddled with neglect.
Rain begins to fall. You circle around to the back and find the entrance to a cellar. A rush of warm air strikes your face as you pull the storm doors open and quickly descend the stairs. Squinting in the darkness, you fumble with your pockets for the matches. You almost jump as a large rat scurries across the floor and disappears into another room. Outside, the heavy rain is pounding the earth, but you feel little comfort in your refuge.
Using one match, you slowly venture forth to the opposite end of the room to try the light switch. Nothing. There is a small white candle sitting on a dusty shelf, so you light it. The cellar looks to be completely empty. You wander through, what seems like an endless maze of rooms, when something catches your eye. Carved into the very foundation is a doorway that doesn’t seem to fit with the rest of the house. You approach it, holding the candle in front of you, and peer into the small passage. There is a steep, narrow stairway that spirals downward and out of sight. The ancient stone masonry gives you the impression that this was here long before the house was even built. Throwing caution to the wind, you decide to investigate and slowly descend the stairs.
