How do masochists enjoy pain?

Sadistic torture is fun for masochists. They often enjoy the physical marks that remain after impact and other rough play. Red skin, bruises, rope marks and welts are worn as badges of honour. Masochists often enjoy their marks being prodded or poked. They may even do this to themselves. Pain from marks received in a scene make a masochist feel good, often in a sexual way.

Some masochists enjoy scenes that do not end with marks. They can have pain inflicted on them by restraint, or with electric toys or impact toys that don’t mark easily. They can also enjoy mental torture known as a mind fuck. This is when a sadist uses fear and control to make a masochist feel pain without actually inflicting physical torture at all.
