Episode 51 – Pain on Purpose

Physical pain is a common feature of BDSM. Many seek out pain through impact, knives, needles and more. But the question of why looms over masochists. Why would someone seek out pain? Why do they enjoy pain? Why does it turn them on?

We were very fortunate to talk with Leigh Cowart, author of “Hurts So Good: The Science and Culture of Pain on Purpose, to find out the answers to these questions and many more. We discuss emotional masochism, physical masochism and when is it too much. It is a fascinating conversation with lots of information for anyone who identifies as a masochist and those who wonder about them.
