1 - no idea where this should end up. It’s a question for a story I’m working on, and it’s sort of medical advice, and sort of a factual question, so yeah.
2 - I am, obviously, not going to go beat anyone with a variety of implements to figure this out on my own.
3 - The internet scares me, and I really don’t want to just go do a google image search for people who have been beaten bloody.
All that out of the way, I’m in need of an implement that would be found in a normal american household, can be used by a woman of no particular strength on a helpless victim inside a standard 7’ tall room, and would cause a shit ton of pain in a fairly short amount of time (less than 5 minutes), but not much actual permanent damage, and preferably, makes the victim look really awful (ie, bloody, bruised) but not entirely incapacitated (other than by pain) once they’ve been worked over.
Coat hanger? Toilet plunger? Wire whisk? Garden rake?
I don’t read murder mysteries or thrillers or abuse memoirs, so I really am not up on my implements of torture. The only one I do know is that a family dedicated to ‘corporal punishment’ of children advocates using plastic tubing because it doesn’t leave marks, which is the exact opposite of what I need for the storyline.
