Sadomasochism is scientifically defined as the combination
of two different and inverse paraphilias, masochism and sadism. In short, may
define sadomasochist as the person whom pain is something highly sexually-charged
and pleasant-ridden, by either inflicting pain on someone or being inflicted
on. In general, those engaging in sadomasochism are very inventive and
connected with role playing during sexual intercourse. That's why the world
of sadomasochism is so-accessories populated, cross dressing orientated
and role inversion thereof. In sadomasochism-orientated rapport each
partner alternates the role of masochist or sadistic.
It's important to say that in general, both parts involved have
complete control of their sadomasochist tendencies, but even when completely
consensual (as sadomasochism HAS to be), there is risk of going to far.
Sadomasochism in acceptable levels is not something wrong or reprehensible,
but requires reciprocal sense of respect and precaution between parts involved
in play. In fact, many relationships based on sadomasochism involve only
role playing of submission and dominance.
Currently, scientists are finding correlations between sadomasochism
and hormonal unbalances in some individuals, revealing that there's a major
chance of sadomasochism being a result of a chemical combination. It
is already proved that people engaged into sadism role playing display high
up levels of testosterone, while the submissive part showed depressed levels
of the same hormone. In addition, endorphin is released through pain experiences,
and it's a hormone connected with feelings of pleasure and in some cases, potentially
Sadomasochism can't be considered mental disorder, but
it is not rare to see this behavior associated with personality disorders, interfering
in the person's social and occupational life and being substantial source of
frustration and distress.
