First of all, I do not in any way condone physical violence against women. I think it's disgusting.

The Marquis was first imprisoned for tying up a young house-maid and whipping her senseless. She escaped by leaping out a two-story window.

The guy was a creep, and i hate him for it, but boy he really knew how to tell a story. Does anyone agree?
