Here are a few links that I came up with in 5 minutes of googling. They contain references to many, many more studies.

The only worthwhile link is the last one. Lots of citations. Some seem sto be same sex couples but overall men and women dv seems to be running at 50%

Erin Pizzey founded the first battered womens shelter in the UK in 1971. Over the years, she had a chance to study family violence up close, and wrote a book, whose text is now online: Prone to Violence. Her findings violated certain politically-correct viewpoints, and some feminists became very upset with her (she has received death threats).

What she found was that while most women, upon being hit, would decide "that's it, I'm leaving" and go. Others would keep going back to the men who battered them. What Pizzey discovered was that, among this latter group, there were women who were addicted to the adrenaline rush they got from being around violent situations. While some men might satisfy their need for an adrenaline rush by sky-diving or other dangerous activities, these women would get it by seeing how close to the edge they could provoke men.
