Down in the basement of Meiji University is a very unusual collection of artifacts, a museum dedicated to torture implements of ages past.
What is the rationale behind displaying such devices? According to the museum's own website, "it is hoped visitors will be exposed to the world of crime and punishment, and gain a deeper appreciation of human dignity."
Have a look at this recent post by Tokyo Scum Brigade on the museum, and see if that makes you any more appreciative of human dignity.
If you're still not appreciative enough, you may want to check out this short video featuring seiza torture (or ishidakizeme) actually being performed on a young woman (as prelude to a blowjob, no less) - please be aware this video is most definitely NSFW and may offend those of a non-sleazy constitution.
