By the Gods!

Sylvia Lopez is being whipped in SON OF RED CORSAIR

Whipping scenes in PEPLUM films are usually reserved for male characters but women being lashed have occurred in other films like THE MONGOLS and WOMEN OF DEVIL'S ISLAND.

This was her second to last film. Sylvia died of leukaemia. She died in November 1959 and this was released in June of 1959.

Also a notable female whipping scene in "A Fair Wind To Java."
