They lay her on a bed and tell her to get comfortable. Her legs, propped up on two stirrups, felt a cold wind flowing past her vagina. A man and a woman come in and set up their equipment. Now she’s getting pretty nervous, not being able to see the sounds she hears. Then the woman approaches her and tries to keep her calm. She then pulls out an enormous needle that she says will calm her even more. It hurts as she pierces the skin, pushing the needle almost halfway in the arm. After a few minutes, she feels as though all of her muscles are relaxed and her couldn’t get up if her wanted to.
