Anal torture is any torture applied to the anus, using such devices as a hot poker (widely rumoured to have been used to murder the allegedly homosexual English king Edward II without obvious external marks on the body).
It is also name of the generally-milder BDSM practice of inflicting pain on the anus. This can include insertion of objects which produce a burning sensation, as in figging, or subjecting the anus to hot or cold temperatures

Anal torture is considered a riskier activity among BDSM practices due to the fact that the body tissues involved are very delicate.
Anal Torture is also the title of a 1994 pornographic film directed by Max Hardcore
