This is one of the ways those who commit treason are executed, and based upon the evidence from the scene in question, it is common.

In a way, the Red Center resembles a form of brain-washing camp where young women are trained into thinking in a way that is compatible with the new government. Occasionally, women are punished and mistreated with the goal of manipulating their thoughts.

A major concept within the book and TV series is the role of the Handmaids to conceive a child for the Wife by the Commander. Offred herself describes the complex ritual by which the Commander attempts to impregnate her. She also has s*x with the Commander at an underground party full of scantily clad women wherein he leads her to a room and sleeps with her. Later on, she has an affair with Nick.
