*** Electric shocks as a treatment for alcoholism were stopped because most patients reacted to the shocks by drinking to numb the pain of the shock.

** During a certain time, electric torture was the favourite "punishment method" of many behaviorist treatments and experiments. For example the early ABA experiments by Ivar Lovaas used an electrified floor, the famous "learned helplessness" experiments were about dealing electric shocks to wolves, and electric torture was used to treat drug addictions and alcoholism. When reading about behaviorist experiments, it seems like behaviorists were among the biggest sadists among all psychologists.

** Yusaku from ''Anime/YuGiOhVRAINS'' can give Yusei a run for his money in this department. [[spoiler:Ten years prior to the start of the series, Yusaku was one of six children who were kidnapped and locked up, being forced to duel with VR equipment. If they lost, they would receive intense electric shocks that would knock them back. The losers would also be starved. This torture lasted for ''six months'' and left Yusaku a whole range of mental illnesses including PTSD. Even therapy couldn't help him. To make things even worse, ''Yusaku was only six during the Lost Incident/Hanoi Project and didn't even know how much time had passed until after he was freed.'']]

* The Judge Rotenberg Center [[link: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judge_Rotenberg_Educational_Center]] is perhaps infamous for its use of electric shocks on the autistic people there as a form of aversive punishment. One former resident of the center describes how the staff would shock them for the smallest sign of movement, for screaming when shocked, or often for no reason at all.

* ''Film/ISpitOnYourGrave 2'' has protagonist Katie being both recipient and perpetrator of this torture, involving the use of a cattle prod applied to the genitals. When it happens to her, it's prior to being raped by the guy using the cattle prod. When she catches up to him and [[RapeAndRevenge takes vengeance]], she makes ''very'' extensive use of that thing on him before hooking him up to a generator and frying him alive.

** Egypt has used this technique to varying degrees since the time of UsefulNotes/GamalAbdelNasser. Nasser's security services were particularly fond of this method (portrayed chillingly in the 1975 film ''The Karnak Café'', produced under Sadat's less shock-happy regime), but the technique continued through the Mubarak years. Although there are no confirmed reports of it occurring under the present Sisi regime, popular consensus is that "Homeland Security" (which is what they're calling the former State Security these days) is back to its dirty tricks.

* In the Serbian film ''Film/{{Underground}}'', Nazis take Blacky to an abandoned clinical asylum and use the electroshock treatment equipment to torture him about partisan activity. Unfortunately for them, Blacky is an electrician by trade and has become utterly impervious to electric shocks. After maxing out the juice to no effect, a Nazi finally touches an electrode to see if it's working and blows himself across the room. The movie is a surreal BlackComedy.
