The consensual use of domination and/or pain within mutually decided limits in sexual role play. The “sadist” is the partner who dominates and inflicts pain. The “masochist” is the partner who is submissive and receives pain. A safe word is chosen in advance that can be used at any time to stop the sexual role play.
