Instruments de Flagellation


Interesting collection.


Click picture to enlarge.


My French isn't the best so had to look up a couple of these. I've highlighted the words I didn't know and the translations.

1. Le Tawse ecossias (The Scottish Tawse)

2. La verge de bouleau (The Birch Verge)

3. La discipline des moines (The discipline of the monks.)

Eh...ouch? Especially an OUCH for the the last one - The discipline of the Monks.
I have seen a couple of movies where the use of it was "shown" as well as a documentary somewhere along the line. (self flagellation)

In the States, one of the main characters in the hit show Boardwalk Empire performed self flagellation several times. The location for the show is AC where BBW was held this past weekend.

I love coming here for my history lesson, history seems more interesting than I remember it in school.

I'm intrigued by the "gant de massage". Must be a different kind of massage than the one you get at a spa.

Raven - I've seen a documentary on self flagellation, quite interesting.

Joey - An intersting show, have you seen it?

PK - LOL. History was one of my favourite subjects at school.

Hermione - Yes, me too. Out of place a little with all the other instruments. Must be prickly or something like that.

Sara - The tawse my favourite.

Thanks all.

Love,
Ronnie

I have seen every episode of the show. It is on a cable network so they can say, do and show a lot more than on public TV.

Joey - Of course cable channel, sill me I was thinking of a live show. Thanks.

Red - A while back they showed a documentary on monks and a small part of the programme was about their self inflicted penance,was interesting.

Joey, Red, thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a good week.

I'll take one of each, please and thank you.


Ha...I don't usually do this, but the word verification is "subbery". Fitting. It really should be a word, eh?

Thanks Pink.
