Impalement is a method of torture and execution whereby a person is pierced with a long stake. The penetration can be through the sides, through the rectum, through the vagina, or through the mouth. This method leads to a painful death; sometimes taking days. The stake would often be planted in the ground, leaving the impaled person suspended to die.
