Masochism is the wish to suffer pain, being wound, flagellated and be subjected to force. The individual affected is controlled by the idea of being completely subject to the will of the person as by a master, humiliated and abused.
The common element in all these cases is the fact that the sexual instinct is directed to ideas of subjugation and abuse by the opposite sex.
This sexual disease also exists in gays couples.
Sometimes masochism experiences were restricted to masochistic fantasies.
