Sexual Masochism

Everyone has a specific fetish when it comes to sex. They are varied in nature, and none is more intriguing that sexual masochism. Sexual masochism can be defined as a type of sex where the individual prefers to be emotionally and physically injured or humiliated during the sex act.

Sexual masochism involves various different acts like bondage, submission, and dominance during role-playing as well as physical pain from whips and paddles. Different types of people prefer different roles when it comes to masochism. There are those who prefer to be the dominant person inflicting physical pain and emotional humiliation. While there are others who like playing the role of slave and experience the humiliation and pain to gain sexual gratification. The dominant person is normally referred to as the Dom if they are male or Domme when they are female, the pronunciation being the same. There are some couples that take it in turn to be the Domme and the Dom during masochism creating a balance between submissive and dominant roles.

Masochism can range from simple handcuffs on the bed all the way to chains and bondage where there is little movement. Sex toys are normally used to increase the sexual gratification. Pain can be inflicted through whipping, paddles, or using wax in some extreme circumstances.

Reasons some people prefer masochism
Sexual masochism is a sexual preference in the same way that some people prefer certain positions over others. There are numerous cases of people who are more attracted to brunettes or people who prefer people of the same sex. In the same way, masochism is a preference that an individual may have. From a medical perspective, the feeling of pain and humiliation experienced during masochism leads to the production of endorphins that give the feeling of euphoria and pleasure. Combined with sexual pleasure, this makes a more intense feeling of sexual gratification for certain individuals.

There are a lot of people who may assume that masochism is as a result of previous abuse. However, psychologists tested this theory and found that there was no significant relationship between abuse and masochism. Clearly, masochism seems to be a preference of a certain section of the population. To some extent, even people who are not masochists seem to prefer some mild forms of masochism. Some men are turned on by a girl who digs into their back and some girls by men who bite their lips. This is painful, but at a smaller scale. These are somewhat masochist actions, but somehow they appeal to a large portion of the population.
Masochism is a preference that people have. However, there are always some important points that people need to consider.

Masochism should be done by consenting adults. In the same way that no one should force people to have sex, masochists only practice BDSM with other people who have the same sexual preference.

But masochism has its limitations. Even though this involves physical abuse, there are limits. The use of safe words ensures that the slave is kept safe.

Clearly, sexual masochism is something natural that appeals to a certain portion of the population. It can be explained chemically as well as a lifestyle choice, indicating that sexual masochism is something that people should be free to enjoy.
