The Judas Cradle is listed (or ranked) 43 on the list The Worst Ways to Die
LGwynethGuest added The Judas Cradle

"The victim would presumably be placed in the waist harness above the pyramid-shaped seat, with the point inserted into their anus or vagina, then very slowly lowered by ropes. The subject is tortured by intense pressure and stretching of the orifice, eventually succumbing to tears in muscle tissue that could turn septic and kill from infection, or simply being impaled."

"The Judas cradle is one of nine medieval torture devices used by the psychopath in the first episode of season one of Wire in the Blood.
