A sadist is a person who derives sexual gratification from inflicting pain on another person or from threatening to do so. A masochist is the person that derives sexual gratification, or has the tendency to derive sexual gratification, from being physically or emotionally abused.

Dominance and submission is a way of looking at the sadistic-masochistic distinction, a power dynamic rather than a set of acts. It’s been said that those who are easy-going in real life tend be dominant in the bedroom, and those with type-A personalities are rather submissive.

It is common for the partners to set up an erotic scene in a deliberate way, building in elements of inflicted or threatened pain according to their individual preferences and mutual agreement. Roles can also be interchanged between the sadistic master and the masochistic slave. Costumes and aids – whips, paddles, chains, and so on – may all be used as attributes for sexual gratification.
