Water torture

Water torture is a collective term for a number of different torture techniques involving water.

Many of these forms of torture are based upon genuine practices that have been used on prisoners of war, including weatherboarding and Chinese water torture.

The practice of dunking is another popular form of water torture.

All forms of water torture play upon the basic human fear of drowning.
