Filming himself torturing and killing a young Indonesian woman, British investment banker Rurik Jutting veered between boasting, remorse and describing the pleasure he derived from sexually brutalising the first of two victims. The year-old Cambridge University graduate has admitted killing Sumarti Ningsih, a year-old single mother, and another Indonesian woman, Seneng Mujiasih, in his luxury high-rise apartment two years ago. The four women and five men on the jury clenched their jaws and, at times, diverted their eyes as they endured an opening minute segment of the torture of Ningsih. Tears welled up in the eyes of one middle-aged male juror. While the video was not shown to the public in the courtroom, journalists covering the trial could hear the audio.

14 Horrifying Torture Methods Used On Women
PARIS - Migrants trying to reach Europe face routine rape and sexual torture throughout their journey — and especially in Libya — with men facing abuse nearly as routinely as women, according to a study based on dozens of interviews with aid workers and migrants. With European Union funding, the Libyan coast guard retrieves migrants from the Mediterranean and returns them to detention centers nominally run by the government, where migrants say the abuse resumes. Smugglers torture migrants and film it to extract ransom payments from their families, and to thin the number of people in their unofficial prisons, according to the study. Previous studies have found that nearly all women who cross from North Africa have been raped or sexually abused along the journey; this one found that the danger was likely nearly as prevalent among men. A mental health worker described graves filled with men with their genitals sliced off — a description corroborated by the account of a survivor of a mass mutilation.

Women have been tortured to repress their sexuality, silence their tongues, and conform to standards of beauty. Most of all, women have been tortured to break their spirit and to keep them submissive to the men who feared what a liberated woman might mean for their fragile worldviews. The majority of the methods and devices men created for the purpose of this cruelty were intended to humiliate the female victim.
