M is for Masochism.
Dictionary.com defines masochism as
Psychiatry. the condition in which sexual gratification depends on suffering physical pain or humiliation.
Am I a masochist?
I’ve been contemplating that thought lately. I love being spanked. I love having uncomfortable touches from my hubby when we are making love because, by accepting pain from his hand, I am showing submission.
I keep thinking about the word “depends.” That’s where I get stuck. Does my sexual satisfaction really DEPEND on the infliction of pain on my body? I don’t know. I can’t deny being highly turned on when my man tortures my nipples or fists me. I’m amazingly wet between the legs when I think about being publicly humiliated.
But if public humiliation were to ever take place, I don’t think I’d be turned on–I would be mortified (and livid!). Also, some pain is just plain painful. Fantasizing about various types of pain, punishment, and humiliation can be very erotic, but experiencing them doesn’t bring the same sensation for me.
I don’t think that my sexual satisfaction is actually dependent on suffering pain or humiliation. I am more of a dabbler, I guess. I like some pain, but I just don’t fit the mold of a masochist. Well, whatever a psychiatrist would diagnose me as being, it doesn’t change who I am or what I like. I guess labels really don’t make much difference in the grand scheme . . .
