The Pear of Anguish

The Pear of Anguish was used during the center Ages as how to torture women who conducted a miscarriage, liars, slavery, blasphemers, and homosexuals. A pear-shaped instrument was inserted into one among the victim's orifices: the vagina for ladies, the anus for homosexuals, and therefore the mouth for liars and blasphemers. The instrument consisted of 4 leaves that slowly separated from one another because the torturer turned the screw at the highest. it had been the torturer's decision to easily tear the skin or expand the "pear" to its maximum and mutilate the victim. The Pear of Anguish was usually very adorned to differentiate between the anal, vaginal, and oral pears. They also varied in size accordingly.
