MASOCHISM – the sexual pleasure or gratification of having pain or suffering inflicted upon the self, often consisting
of sexual fantasies or urges for being beaten, humiliated, bound, stimulated, or otherwise made to suffer, either as an enhancement
to or a substitute for sexual pleasure. The name is derived from the name of the 19th century author Leopold von Sacher-Masoch,
known for his novel Venus in Furs that dealt with highly masochistic themes.
MASOCHIST – one who experiences arousal, excitement, or sexual gratification from receiving pain. Contrast sadist.
Commentary: Contrary to popular misconception, a masochist does not experience arousal at all forms of pain; stubbing a toe,
for example, is unlikely to be arousing. The context of the pain is important.
