The correllation could be turned around to say that those prone to violent acts and murder are drawn to view S&M pornography. It could also be true that violent people are drawn to violent acts...and that people prone to violent acts deny themselves the outlet of concensual S&M and are therefore MORE apt to commit violent acts.
The problem is there is no way to predict human behavior with 100% accuracy.
That's absolutely right, Airen.
Also, I prefer, myself, not to use the words "sadist" or "masochist" in my own play. My Man and I have a somewhat D/s relationship, and he is the Alpha, Dom etc. However, he is not
a sadist, although we play hard and engage in some play that some other people (if they were to see it) might think are intended to cause.... pain? I see it more as "Intense Sensation" because when we're playing no "real" pain is really felt, it's all translated to intense sensation and arousal.
My Man is NOT violent and is a nice guy. He has never committed a crime (OK, we had sex when he was a grown man and I was under 18, but aside from that....) and I would not call him a sadist. A Dom, yes, but not someone who has the desire to watch people suffer in any way.
I also was not aware that the diagnosis as "sadist" was in the new DSM (Diagnostics and Statistical Manual, the book mental health processional use to diagnose and class certain conditions) Serial killers may be classed as "Sadistic killers" but that is NOT the same as BDSM consensual
I think like most people who don't understand anything but Missionary position PIV as the only "sex" acceptable, consent
has everything to do with many things. Whip somebody when she asks you to do so, have a Safe Word, and know when to stop; Consensual BDSM. Whip somebody you kidnapped out of the University parking lot, hold her against her will and have no way for her to communicate HER needs to stop with you: Crazy Sadistic Criminal.
Context is everything, and your ENGLISH professor evidently knows nothing about context and CONSENT
in the world of Hard Play.
