How can I get harmed from having sexual fetishism or masochism?
----------

You can get harmed if you get involved with something with someone that doesnt know what they are doing, or doesnt stay with in safe boundries. This could involve going into anything too fast, especially involving masochism. As far as fetish, same consept, but depends on the fetish itself. There are some fetishes that can be dangerous and even deadly if pushed too far (like choking/aphixiation).

Part of it is knowing where to draw the line between fantasy and reality.  (+ info)

What is the difference between masochism and borderline personality disorder?


Someone told me that people with borderline personality disorder are masochists.
----------

to be machocistic is not necessarily about sex but tends to mean someone who enjoys pain and/or misery. it means thatthey enjoy being miserable all the time...... and for some of them that is true, they would argue that they hate being miserable but some of them cling to their illness because it is the only self identity they have.  (+ info)

Do you think childhood spankings can lead to masochism later in life ?


If yes, is this really a good way to "discipline children? I have read that children can get sexually aroused when spanked because the bottom is an erogenous area with nerve centers leading to the genetalia. But I'm not certain about the results.
----------

I don't think this is a good way to discipline children.
I've heard about the arousal thing to.
But as for leading to masochism, it might.
But I think there are other factors to that too.  (+ info)

Is sexual sadism/masochism different than sadistic/masochistic behavior in non-sexual conditions?


According to Psychology, what is the difference among people who practice sadism/masochism in the sexual intercourse to people who behave like that in other aspects of their life?

*I'd appreciate if you share the resources.
----------

Yes, there are differences.

Sadists like or have a need to inflict pain, humiliation and shame, while masochists like or need to have pain, shame, degradation inflicted opn them.

Some marriages operate this way and it's not about the sex, though sex can be included as part of the behaviors. Surprisingly, many abusive/sadistic husbands can be tender and giving during lovemaking. Sometimes it's the only time they are nice to their wives, but when wives depend on that affection, husbands often cut them off or find a lover.  (+ info)
