A Man Punished His Wife for Being an Adulteress
There was a married woman who had multiple lovers. The men would go to the woman’s house when her
husband was gone to work in his fields tending his corn and other crops. When the man learned of his
wife’s behavior, he planned a way to make her confess, and hopefully change her ways. He carved a piece of
wood in the shape of a penis, but longer than normal. He then tied his wife down and inserted the piece of
wood into her vagina. He kept doing this until she finally confessed her infidelity, and agreed to be faithful
to her husband in the future.
Un hombre castigó a su mujer por ser adúltera
Había una mujer casada que tenía varios amantes. Los hombres llegaban a la casa de la mujer cuando su
marido había ido a trabajar en su terreno cultivando el maíz y otras siembras. Cuando el hombre se dio
cuenta de las malas mañas de su esposa, él hizo un plan para esforzarla confesar sus infidelidades, y quizá
arrepentirse. El talló un pedazo de madera en la forma de un pene, pero lo hizo más largo que un pene
normal. Después la ató a su esposa y metió el pedazo de madera repetidamente en su vagina hasta que le
confesara su infidelidad, y prometiera ser fiel a su marido en el porvenir.
