DESCRIPTION

mas·och·ism / [mas-uh-kiz-uhm] / noun

Pain brings pleasure… I am more interested in the following:

Waiting

In preparation for something that will never happen.

Suspense, suspension

Delayed gratification, denial, desire

Suffocation, coldness

The hunter and the hunted

Mother, woman

cold and sentimental simultaneously, deserted plains, emptiness

Obsession, desire

Frozen actions, suspended movement

Atonement, remorse

punishment as a condition and prerequisite for pleasure.

Conversation, argument

Nothing sexually explicit or obscene

a sense of decency, anonymity

Progression, not repetition

No link between opposites, symptoms grouped and regrouped

Bondage, fur

Denial, humiliation

Sexual pleasure derived from enduring pain.

Only a victim can describe the torture

Love affairs, anonymous letters

Advertisements, contracts, pacts, clearly defined agreements, promises…

Reasoning, education, persuasion

Masochist as hermaphrodite, Nothing lasts forever.
