Never used in canon.

The noun {be'joy'} "ritualized torture-by-females" was used in the novel SAREK.

Cf. also the verbs {yu'} "interrogate, question", {peghHa'moH} "cause to 
not keep a secret", {DISmoH} "cause to confess" and the slang term {luH} 
"cause (someone) to confess, cause (someone) to reveal a secret" (literally 
"yank"; see discussion at KGT p.153).
