"The Inquisition"; A story of gang rape and torture

I've mentioned in several blogs that my fantasies have gone to the dark side of late and I've been enjoying images of bondage, rape, captivity, dungeons and torture. I thought it might be interesting to write such a story but it turned out to be much more difficult than I imagined because in real life, these things repulse me.

Not only that, but owing to my limitations as a writer, the story was very challenging technically as well. I toyed with a number of backdrops and while I really liked the medieval Inquisition theme (monks abusing young girls, allegedly for being witches, kind-of-thing), I hadn't a clue how to pull off the language, culture and environment of Europe, circa 1000 AD. So what you will read is a compromise. The orgy scene in Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut was useful in this regard.

The story is finished. And because violence and rape do repulse me, this was perhaps the most interesting story I've written, as it forced me to get out of my comfort zone, much more so than even my autobiographical incest stories. And while I have first hand experience undressing for daddy, no one has ever so much as layed a hand on me, so trying to recreate in words being brutally beaten and raped by strangers was at times almost painful in itself. On top of that, I don't even know if it worked.

The story is going into the queue. I hope my effort is worthy of your time.
