Are You Sitting Comfortably?

One way or another this blog has had a bit of a chair related theme this week (it wasn’t planned to be like that it just happened) and so I thought that I would continue that with a little look at some chairs designed specifically for punishment purposes.

The spiked chair

There are a surprising number and variants of these that come up in an image search.

The Judas Cradle

The nastiness of this device is obvious. I have often wondered how it’s name originated though.

The ducking stool

The old classic. No medieval village should be without one.

Personally I think that I would feel a bit lazy, being punished whilst sitting down. I think I’ll stick to getting spanked 🙂


Note – My main computer is broken and the net book that I am blogging from at the moment does not have the files, photographs and bookmarks on it, that are often used on this blog and this may effect posts on this blog, until the other computer is fixed.
