Histories of Torture
Being chained in a dungeon must be one of the most common of fantasies among BDSM bottoms.I’ve played images of confinement though thousands of convoluted and subtly differentiated variations.
Not that I have hooded menace fetish. This cover is probably meant to be suggestive of the garish mythology that has accumulated around the Spanish Inquisition.
The Hitory of Torture has been the title of a number of books. Here’s a second instance.
This detail from a photograph of man hanging by chains does nothing for me. I need to see more of him, ideally his face. And where is the sadist who supplies the mana, the necessary catylst?
Both of these histories of judicial torment are in print. People used to read them, desperate for aids to their fetishistic imagination. Given the superabundance of kinky imagery available to us in the 21st century I wonder how many do now.
