Between consenting adults.
On pedophiles & rapists I believe it is.
When you are really young and don't realise that pulling the legs of spiders is not really a funny thing to do.
When it is inflicted upon a child molester
When she won't give you her number at the bar.
Sounds perfectly reasonable to me!
There had to be some humor here. It's only going to go down hill from here.
when he won't stop asking for your number at the bar.
I believe when you go to war all bets are off, but torture doesn't work - people tell you want you want to hear. so it is brutally effective at confirming a negative. I find it distasteful.
When I say it is.
When your loved one is kidnapped, being abused and the person in your custody has knowledge of your loved ones whereabouts. Child molesters can also be tortured, as well as child murderers, mass murderers etc. As a matter of fact, torture in my book is an acceptable form of punishment for those that deserve it.
When the person in front of you at the supermarket pays for a small tin of beans with a cheque.
When the CIA do it.
For rapists and pedophiles!
I could never bring my-self to torture another living being. If you think it's alright in order to save lives, have at it.
When it's by tickling.
I would love to say never, but realistically in the case of known terrorist, go for it.<br />
If I could save one innocent life, I would do it.<br />
I know terrorist feel that no one is innocent, but to blow up children is a crime against humanity. <br />
irishblush-----yes, between consenting adults it can be very delish.
In a real-world situation, it may be regretfully necessary to obtain information to save many, many lives. And like techniques such as water-boarding, the effects are not lasting.
