Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down: Pain for Pleasure
ABC ^ | 5/9/05 | Charlotte Sector

Posted on 05/19/2005 6:41:02 PM PDT by pissant

"Nurse Nasty," "Wicked Doctor," "The Prison Matron" … not the usual way to introduce yourself, but in the leather-clad world of sadomasochism, naughty is nice.

And pain is pleasure.

"I need stimulation and get a terrific high from playing rough," said Allena Gabosch, 52, a Seattle-based "bottom," meaning she's the one on the receiving end of spanking. The buxom, tattooed, alternative sex activist finds pain play very seductive but, "I still ask for Novocain at the dentist's office."

While most couples don't need whips, paddles or ropes to get in the mood, a minority find sadomasochism, or S&M, erotic. They like to explore the fine line between pain and pleasure to escape from reality, test their endurance, experience a spiritual high or simply to act out fantasies and fears.

The pain can be real, but the goal isn't injury or broken bones. And despite the early belief that smacks in the sack led to mental illness, psychologists say that S&M practitioners are just as well-adjusted as the average person.

Slap Me for Pleasure

Sex or lovemaking is about feeling good, so what feels good about pain?

"People clearly want fictionalized pain for attention and symbolic effect," said Roy Baumeister, professor of psychology at Florida State University and author of "Masochism and the Self." S&M helps people temporarily lose their normal identity and focus on the flashes of pain, he said.

Baumeister described S&M pain as separated from its biological function. "It's no longer about warning you of injury, it's about escaping yourself."

Lawyers can't be smart.

Ask one of them something about the Constitution or the Federalist papers and they go to pieces.

Isn't it comforting to know that the legal class as a whole has almost no knowledge of the core of the law that they are practicing?

Arioch7 out.

Not NEARLY as dumb as I look. And...hey, hey, hey...don't you go calling ME a lawyer, sister! I know when I'm being insulted. And I haven't managed to make it past a bar YET. As you could probably tell from my posts.

Or if you are gay, a new BMW.

Never been in a Beemer (or as we referred to them in my college days in Boston in the late 1970s, "Break My Windows"), but I do confess to being very partial to my Infiniti QX56. Butch enough for a lesbian … proudly driven by this gay man. (LOL.)

Did you notice the URL of this article?

http://abcnews.go.com/Health/PainManagement/story?id=708687&page=1

ABC filed this article under "Health"??

I'm about to open WFTD class. In honour of this non-event, here's an appropriate word or two to add to your vocabularies (I found them in my huge Oxford dictionary, so they're real):

vapulate: to flog; to be flogged

vapulatory: of, like or pertaining to flogging

I understand these will be two of Hillary's favourite words when she becomes President. You're welcome.

We are but eight score young blondes and brunettes, all between sixteen and nineteen-and-a-half, cut off in this castle with no one to protect us. Oooh. It is a lonely life: bathing, dressing, undressing, making exciting underwear.

Oh, wicked, wicked Zoot. Oh, she is a naughty person and she must pay the penalty, and here in Castle Anthrax, we have but one punishment for setting alight the grail-shaped beacon: you must tie her down on a bed and spank her.

A spanking! A spanking! You must spank her well, and after you have spanked her, you may deal with her as you like, and then, spank me.

And spank me.

And me.

And me.

Yes. Yes, you must give us all a good spanking!

For all you closet practiioners who may be lurking or not so forth coming there is a great movie that is a must see if this is your knack.
'The Secretary"

and if you really want to see a freaky movie that will make you cringe
"Love Object"

Both are R rated no porn.

Are you really, really bad? Really seriously bad? Well then, part of your punishment is to have to wait for your spanking.

I'll let you know when it's time. Do you want me to wear the black leather or the red leather with the plunging neckline?

No whips. Hand spanking only.
