Stocks are devices used as a form of physical punishment involving public humiliation.

Stocks resemble are large wooden frame that locks the victim at the neck, hands and sometimes legs. This leaves their face exposed, meaning that things can be thrown at them, or they can be spat at. It also leaves their bottom exposed and therefore open to corporal punishment.

Stocks can also be used for longer term bondage and public humiliation.
