When we consider some of the various barbaric practices that were commonplace in the lives of our ancestors, we tend to look at them with a judgmental eye – thinking of them as uncivilized, and downright savage. Most of us would even admit to wondering if our violent predecessors, like those who relished the bloody gladiator games or those who condoned cruel medieval torture chambers, were actually less evolved than those alive today.
But has humankind really progressed that much, or are we just as bloodthirsty and ruthless as ever? If you’re under the impression that we are somehow more enlightened, you might be surprised by some of the ancient, barbaric practices that still exist throughout the world.
Male genital torment, or CBT; cock and ball torture. Male genitals come in such a great variety of shapes and sizes. Each male responds differently to stimulation. I have found a few techniques that are suitable for most any male. I will be going into these and addressing more advanced types of CBT in a future issue.
Most men experience limited stimulation or repetitive stimulation and may find these techniques helpful in creating a more vivid sexual life. My man appreciates it when I bind him to the bed with his legs spread wide and his cock and balls exposed. I like to sit between his legs with my toys within reach. I use both hands to caress him all over his crotch. If you are not partnered, I suggest using latex gloves. I want him to feel relaxed and secure. It is important to communicate with him on what is working and what is not. I stimulate all the areas around his genitals with my hands, purposefully not touching his cock. I enjoy using a light feathery touch to start and build pressure up slowly. The hair is also receptive to stimulation. Stroke it, comb it with your fingers, tug on it. I will stroke his balls and capture them with my fingers at the base of his balls. Then I can stretch and pull them gently, slowly building the pressure. I let my fingertips glide over his captured balls, feeling the skin of his scrotum stretched over his balls. Remember what you hold in your hands and remember that he trusts you. Even though this may be a CBT scene feel free to touch other parts of his body. Tit play fits in nicely with CBT so give his nipples some attention when you play with him.
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).
Genitorture is the act of focusing your play on the genitals for pain/pleasure. Female Genitorture (Cunt Torture or Cunt Play) is pain play inflicted on female genitals. This is any form of pain inflicted on the female genitalia as by abrasion, clamping, play piercing, slapping, temperature play, hitting, pinching (with clips or clothespins), electricity, gentle whipping and flogging. Female genitorture is focused play on genital area that can range from sexy, sensuous sensations to intense pain. Everyone can enjoy cunt play whether you are a sensualist, sexual slut, sadist, or masochist.
There are ways of playing with torture of pussy and the experience of being tortured without inflicting pain. For some women feeling/being exposed in public and humiliation are forms of torture. Torture can also be experienced through erotic teasing without orgasms, being made to wait for orgasms, or being made to come over and over again. Feeling out of control and powerless, being restrained, and surrendering to the unknown can also be a form of torture. Psychological control and “mindfucking” can be used in many ways to create fear and terror without actual pain. It’s so much fun! Genitorture can involve role play – medical, captivity, interrogation, training, punishment, etc.
Genitorture is a wonderful arena for sadists and masochists. Intense pain can be caused without much effort on the top’s part. The genital area is very sensitive. If you don’t want to inflict intense pain, tone it down! Things that might be experienced as mild sensations elsewhere in the body can be very intense in the genital area. There are endless ways of easily inflicting pain in a variety of ways. Bottoms never know what’s coming next. Pain should always be on the outside of the body, not inside. Female genitorture primarily focuses on female genitalia: mons pubis, labia, clitoris, vagina, urethra, anus, even the thighs, abdomen and buttocks when doing genitorture. Genitorture can be part of any scene and can be combined with other types of play.
A martyr is a person who is put to death or endures suffering because of a belief, principle, or cause. The themes of torture, sadism and captivity have been touched on by many horror films of the 2000s. “Martyrs” is the first film that could be called “torture porn” that doesn’t come from a conflicted moral point of view. On the surface, the film looks a lot like “Hostel” or “Saw”. Beneath the skin, though, it has much more in common with “Funny Games” or “Irreversible”, films where graphic violence isn’t just a series of vicarious thrills that are the entire reason for the film’s existence. “Martyrs” tells a story in a grotesque, mysterious way while hinting at possible religious motifs throughout. Not for the faint of heart this film starts off with scenes of female torture and really stays in an apologetically dark tone during the show. Progressing to more strange territory in the later half of the film viewers will need to prepare for director Pascal Laugier’s shock and awe visual assault that will surprise the senses. For those sadists and masochists who appreciate pure horror and intelligent moviemaking, “Martyrs” is a real find.
“Martyrs” is a French film. The French can make very strong horror movies. If the audience is open-minded and strong-willed enough to go along with “Martyrs”, they’ll find a movie that is possibly the best of the recent spate of high quality horror films coming out of France. The film is written and directed by Pascal Laugier. “Martyrs” stars Morjana Alaoui as Anna and Mylene Jampanoi as Lucie with support given by Catherine Begin as Mademoiselle, Robert Toupin as Le pere, and Isabelle Chasse as La Creature.
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.
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.
In this torture video slavegirl starts her day off in a little device we like to call the Head Orifice. This left her on her knees and in a rather discomforting position.
