Sadomasochism, or sexual enjoyment from giving or receiving pain, may be a meditative experience and in some cases may lead to an altered state of consciousness, new research suggests. Consensual sadomasochism was long considered pathological, but psychologists studying people interested in BDSM bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism have failed to find evidence that these sexual practices are harmful. One study, published in May , actually found that practitioners of BDSM were better off than the general population in some ways, including having secure relationships and lower anxiety. Currently, the psychiatrists' definitive handbook, the DSM-5, lists BDSM as a paraphilia , or unusual sexual fixation, but only classifies it as a disorder if it causes harm. If sadomasochism is not a pathology as once believed, the question is why some people engage in these painful sexual behaviors, said James Ambler, a graduate student in psychology at Northern Illinois University. To find out, Ambler recruited "switches," or people in the SM community who like both receiving pain and giving pain.
