Because it's October, (and I'm inspired by Jay Noel who is blogging about real life creepy things) I'm going to post about 13 disturbing sex fetishes that just may leave you sick to your stomach, incredibly intrigued, or generally frightened for the fate of human kind. I've researched these bizarre things (in part) as a writer because when you create villains, it serves you well to have a full toolbox. I'm going to design a badge and change the number each day for my mini-blog-a-thon. And for my badge, I have chosen the image of this woman:
Her name is Wu Zetian.
Wu Zetian was Empress of China from October 690 to February 705. She is the only woman in Chinese history to rule in her own right. She was a ruthless, cruel, sadistic and sexually depraved murderess who drove her people into chaos. She ordered tortures, executions and forced suicides on a daily basis. She had all of her rivals exiled or executed including the ex-empress Wang. She also had members of her family executed including her niece and nephews. She also killed her newly born daughter. Other family members were exiled including her sons, in which one was eventually ordered to commit suicide. Wu had thousands of her people poisoned, strangled, mutilated, burned and boiled alive. Others had their noses, ears, feet and legs cut off. She died in December 705 at age 81.
I think Wu Zetian shall be a fine icon for this strange countdown of the extremely bizarre.
I will attempt to keep my descriptions of these fetishes very clinical. But all of them are real (I won't be posting many pictures). I'll let your imaginations do all of that for you. I hope you will join me and not be too scared.
I'll start with number 1 tomorrow :).
