AKA. Oral, Rectal, and Vaginal Pear.
A torture device shaped like a pear; had four segments which opened and closed at the turn of a screw at the top, like a flower opening its petals.
This torture gadget was inserted into the mouths or heretics, blasphemers, disturbers of the peace...
Or into the rectums of people convicted of sodomy. Homosexual men were especially vulnerable to this...
Or into the vaginas of women convicted of adultery or "sexual realtionships with Satan".
Often, the ends of the pear's segments were fitted with sharp tines, designed to rip into the throat, intestines, or cervix.
What ever cavity that the pear entered would face a range of things, from a slight expansion of the pear's segments and discomfort for the victim, up to total expansion and unrepairable (and very painful) mutilation of the cavity.
The pear of anguish... a little torture contraption that does major damage
