Over the past two decades, sadomasochistic literature has emerged as one of the most controversial and vibrant forms of lesbian and gay writing.
A fantasy space of leather, sex, power, and performance, S/M is increasingly becoming a privileged arena in the lesbian and gay community for debating the nature of gender identification and sex.
Ancient Greece, Rome, Persia, and Asia, for example, produced a considerable amount of prose, drama, and poetry with homosexual sadomasochistic themes.

  Sadism and Masochism   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
In other words, the sadomasochist generally desires that the pain be inflicted or received in love, not in abuse, for the pleasure of either one or both participants.
This contradictory character is perhaps most evident in the observation by some that not only are sadomasochistic activities usually done for the benefit of the masochist, but that it is often the masochist that controls them, through subtle emotional cues received by the sadist.
As of 2003, sadomasochistic themes are now common in mainstream erotic fiction, to the point of cliché.

 Sadomasochism: Not a Destructive Form of Sex   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
Society today typically views sadomasochistic behavior in the same judgmental way that behaviors such as masturbation and homosexuality were viewed in the past.
Some sadomasochistic fantasies and enactments can be therapeutic and allow the client (patient) to fully express their sexual desires in a safe context, and realize that his/her partner can service this full sexual expression.
It is difficult for causes of sadomasochistic desires to be identified because whenever a psychoanalyst thinks one has been identified in a patient, "alibis" emerge that inevitably disqualify the given suspicion.

 The Journal of Sex Research: Sexual Behavior and Social Adaptation Among Sad... @ HighBeam Research   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
The results showed that the participants were socially well-adjusted and that sadomasochistic behavior was mainly a facilitative aspect of their sexual lives, most participants being flexible in both sexual activities and sadomasochistic role-taking.
Participants who reported practicing sadomasochistic sex with others in addition to their regular partner or who had no regular partner reported that 46.0% of their occasional partners were practitioners of sadomasochism, while 2.9% reported never finding partners for sadomasochistic sex.
When exploring the changes in sadomasochistic preference it was found that 46.3% of the participants had not changed their preference, 17.9% had changed their behavior regarding sadistic preferences, and 21.6% had changed their behavior toward masochistic preferences.

Hinton's central claim is that "sadomasochistic desire underlies the experience of sympathy, through the perverse narrative spectator who creates and reflects sentimental image-making" (3).

 women's link worldwide - case law | Case of Laskey, Jaggard and Brown v. The United Kingdom
The activities involved as many as forty-four other homosexual men, including a minor, over a ten-year period, and consisted of maltreatment of genitalia with, inter alia, hot wax, sandpaper, fish hooks and needles, ritualistic beatings, branding and the infliction of wounds which resulted in bleeding and scarring.
They appealed to the House of Lords, inquiring whether the prosecution was required to prove lack of consent in cases of sadomasochistic encounters causing actual bodily harm.
The Court found that the State was entitled to consider their prosecution and conviction necessary in a democratic society for the protection of health.

 Takashi Miike - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
His supporters see his works as uncompromising comments on the customs of an increasingly fractured modern society, and insist that the violence in his films functions more as a critique of Japanese culture than a celebration of its violent excesses.
One of his most controversial films was the ultra-violent Ichi the Killer (2001), adapted from a manga of the same name, and starring Tadanobu Asano as a sadomasochistic yakuza enforcer.
However, the BBFC refused to allow the release of the film uncut in Britain, citing its extreme levels of sexual violence towards women.

We were told by one respondent that despite misperceptions and fears the sadomasochistic community, both in Britain and in the world generally, has grown very rapidly over the last 10-15 years, although this is not to say that the total incidence of sadomasochistic sex has grown.
They said that all sadomasochists would accept their contention that their sexual practices did not involve violence: the apparently contradictory nature of their activities can be resolved when it is recognised that it derives from the fact that they like certain forms of pain.
Older sadomasochists practise a long-established endurance test whereby the passive partner is required to kneel on dried peas, without movement, for half an hour or longer: the pain is described as excruciating after as little as 20 minutes.

 Christian A. Gertsch, Love Hurts: Sadomasochistic Aspects of Petrarchan Imagery   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
However, such an attempt at explaining the sadomasochistic aspect of the phantasy involved is not satisfactory, because it both trivializes and misconstrues the nature of the sadomasochistic relationship, no matter whether real or imagined.
Both the reversibility of the roles of sadist and masochist, and the contractual nature of the relationship are part and parcel of the conceits in a number of sonnets, especially by Spenser and Sidney.
Because sadomasochistic discourse, too, is a discourse of metaphysics rather than of biology or psychology, because it, too, is a discourse of utopian hierarchies rather than of natural dichotomies it seems to me to lend itself very fittingly to a fresh analysis of a substantial part of 16th and 17th century poetry.

 Memorandum of Law of Amicus Curiae - National Coalition for Sexual Freedom
Among the sexual practices which the NCSF seeks to protect is consensual sadomasochistic conduct; conduct which is engaged in by a significant, albeit silent, community.
What is further clear is that sadomasochistic practices fall within the definition of sexual practices so protected; the Court of Appeals in Onofre held that the ambit of privacy includes "deviate" sexual conduct, not merely sexual conduct enjoyed by the mainstream of citizens.
Contrary to the District Attorney's presumption, sadomasochistic publications are neither de facto nor de jure obscene, but may be found to be obscene if they satisfy the requirements of the obscenity tests provided by the Supreme Court; the same tests non-sadomasochistic publications are held to.

 Barbelith Underground > Comic Books > Quentin Quire - the gay Zen sadomasochistic samurai connection
Mishima was born into a samurai family and imbued with the code of complete control over mind and body, and loyalty to the Emperor - the same code that produced the austerity and self-sacrifice of Zen.
He was also gay and a sadomasochist and committed ritual suicide at the age of 45 upon completing his masterpiece, The Sea of Tranquity tetralogy.
BTW sorry to disappoint but just because I read books by Zen sadomasochists with a samurai fetish doesn't mean I am one - just as we're not all bald Scotsmen with a penchant for posing in speedos.

 CNN.com - Potential jurors in Robinson trial told to expect graphic evidence - Oct. 3, 2002
The victim seen on the tape is Suzette Trouten, a Michigan woman whose body was one of two found stuffed into barrels on the accused Kansas serial killer's rural property in June 2000.
Defense attorney Sean O'Brien also warned potential jurors that Robinson had similar sexual relationships with victims Izabela Lewicka, of Indiana, who was killed in 1999, and Vickie Neufeld, a Texas woman who survived what she described as a brutal sadomasochistic encounter with Robinson at a hotel in the Kansas City suburbs.
District Attorney Paul Morrison, of Johnson County, Kansas, where Robinson faces three murder counts, read the list of witnesses the state expects to call in the case, about 100 in all, including family members of several of the victims, detectives, police officers and FBI agents.

 SSRN-Forces of Consent by Susan Schmeiser
This essay considers the Anglo-American legal treatment of sadomasochistic sexual practices, under which the consent of the masochist furnishes no defense to a charge of assault against the sadist.
Cases addressing sadomasochistic sexual practices, however, reason in the reverse direction: identifying a public injury in violence unchecked and then locating it on the body of the masochist, regardless of the nature of his participation.
Finally, the essay draws an analogy between the suspicion of sadomasochistic consent and that of consent to psychoanalytic treatment.

The slaves were supposed to tolerate their rulers, and to accept the abuses of their rulers; they were supposed to see this sadomasochistic social relationship as natural, and accept it.
All past empires were organized on a sadomasochistic basis, and lasted for as long as the masses allowed themselves to be abused, and oppressed by their sadistic rulers.
The relevant point I wish to make is that all past empires were predicated on oppression of the many by the few, and that that oppression was based on human tendency to fear, and the fact that the fearful generally permit the fearless to tell them what to do.

The history of what may be properly termed lesbian and gay sadomasochistic literature is inextricably linked to the history of the American leather scene.

The continuing usefulness of looking at the treatment process through the lens of the therapeutic alliance, particularly in relation to the manifold difficulties of working with sadomasochistic pathology, is suggested.
To this end, revisions of the theory of the therapeutic alliance are suggested to address some of the difficulties that have arisen in conceptualizing this aspect of the therapeutic relationship, and to provide an integrated dynamic model for working with patients at each phase of treatment.
The utility of the revised theory is illustrated in application to understanding the sadomasochistic, omnipotent resistances of a female patient through the phases of her analysis.
