Masochism: n. a love of selfinjury and/or punishment
Masochism is frequently associated with sexual pleasure and for some rare individuals pain and sex are a desirable combination where one form is being whipped or paddled during the sexual act.
In general masochism is someone who finds pleasure in having pain inflicted but it is also sometimes coupled with mental illness where slashing of the wrists is sometimes done in an attempt to commit suicide or less lethal forms of self-destruction are done.
Masochists are considered crazy or mentally ill by many who just can’t understand that someone can actually get pleasure from pain.
There are also masochists who get pleasure from being punished in some way. Whether an abusive childhood is a cause is questionable but the fact remains that being grounded, spanked, or being denied a privilege actually causes exciting pleasure for rare individuals.
