The petite year-old victim told Cambridge Crown Court she went along with the wishes of Keiren Batten, 43, after he told her she was boring in bed. A sadomasochist electric shocked a woman through her vagina while she was strapped to a restraint board, a court has been told. The petite year-old victim was "tortured" with a home-made "shocker", sending through her body, Cambridge Crown Court heard. The woman told the court she went along with the wishes of Keiren Batten, 43, of Hitchin, after he told her she was boring in bed. She said the kinky sex started out "like Fifty Shades of Grey " but she became "uncomfortable" after it went further. The jury of seven women and five men was told by prosecutor Simon Wilshire that the controlling and dominant Batten was "obsessed with sadomasochistic sexual practices". In his defence, Batten claims that the woman never went on the board at all and that she agreed to the kinky sex. She consented the first time it was attached to pins in her nipples not knowing what the pain would be like. But the prosecutor said that when she realised what it was like she told him it was a step too far and she never wanted to do it again. However, Mr Wilshire said that on a later occasion she allowed Batten to attach it to her labia after he said he would not switch on the electricity and she made it clear he must not.
Testimony of sexual torture has been received from children as young as 14 who describe being stripped naked, sexually assaulted and threatened with rape. In many cases, the torture testimony of children and juveniles is supported by medical evidence. Children have also "disappeared" after eye-witnesses last saw them being taken away by police. In the context of the conflict between the Kurdish Workers' Party PKK and state forces in the southeast, children have been the victims of abuses by both sides. Children have been killed in village massacres committed by the PKK, but also by state forces in bombardments of villages carried out by soldiers or aircraft.

The parrilla is a method of torture where the victim is strapped to a metal frame and subjected to electric shock. By analogy, the metal frame used in the torture was given the same name because of its appearance and because the victim was placed on top of it like the meat on a barbecue. The parrilla is both the metal frame and the method of torture that uses it.
