The problem with RPing torture is that while I may have done extensive research into the methods—and effects—of torture, the person playing the victim usually hasn’t. Sometimes even I have difficulty believing something could be so horrifying because they sound so silly or “mild”. And usually the other player discounts the activity as being not so bad”, or their character is outright immune to the pain.
So here, just a short video. Have some food for thought.
Or nightmare material, depending on the person.
These are not the documentaries I use for research when writing Laz’ab. But ten minutes of Cliff-notes is less daunting than sixty minutes of What-The-Fuck-Is-Wrong-With-Humanity.
