Gamers playing the hit online game Star Wars: the Old Republic are torturing and abusing a female 'slave' character with punches and an 'electric shock collar' - and enjoying it.
The character comes with a 'shock collar' that allows gamers to ensure 'obedience'.
YouTube videos show players of the million-selling role-playing hit abusing the character with electric shocks and backhanded slaps to the face, with captions such as 'Keeping your slave in line.'
The game has dialogue written specifically FOR players who choose to treat their companion like this - Vette continues to respond in a lifelike fashion after players have been torturing her for hours.

The character, Vette, is a companion that accompanies Sith players - the evil version of Jedi knights - on their journeys.
She is described as a 'Slave, Treasure Hunter, Survivor'.
