(NSFW) Just in case... Are you masochistic or sadistic? neither?

Asked by gypsywench (1631points) August 24th, 2010

Masochists
Do you enjoy spicy hot food? Do you put yourself in an emotional harms way? Would you have an urge to touch something with a sign on it that says, ”HOT don’t touch”?
Sadists
Can you be cruel? Do you play practical jokes on people? Are you a heathly competitor, or do you play dirty?
Note I’m not intending this to be a sexual question, but I put the (NSFW) just in case.

All of the above except practical jokes. Taking advantage of someones unsuspecting good nature has never been my style. If it’s payback time for one pulled on me then that is called revenge and I am expert at that!

Well just call me a Masadist. I like spicy food, but I won’t touch something that says “HOT don’t touch”. I enjoy playing a good practical joke on certain people, but I am not cruel nor am I the least bit competitive.

I will sit right on the stove and defy it to burn my a$$,and then kick it’s a$$ if it doesn’t.
I am just an average kinda gal ;)

If you’re not going to live a life of adventure why live it? At the same time, don’t hurt others (unless they ask you to), there’s enough pain in life, don’t add to it. And if someone burns their ass, offer to rub something on it. Or at least kiss it to make it better.

I’ve been called both in all contexts.

I can never resist temptation and do enjoy the consequences there after :)

Average. Otherwise, we’re dealing with a “ring of fire”.

I guess Masochists. I like it spicy and hot.

NaturallyMe's avatar

I’m neither. I do like some spicy foods occasionally, but i don’t consider that to be masochistic. ):

I like spicy food but don’t consider myself a masochist. I have an alpha dominant personality but don’t consider myself a sadist although I am gently dominant in BDSM relationships.

I am absolutely, definitely not a sadist. I don’t consider myself a masochist either, because I don’t get pleasure out of pain, but I do like spicy food and I do like some activities that others might consider dangerous. It’s for the adrenaline rush, not the pain.

Facade's avatar

I wouldn’t call myself a masochist because that seems extreme, but I do enjoy some pain =)
Oddly, I answer no to all of the questions pertaining to masochists, and yes to the one’s for sadists.

Everyone displays both traits and some point, I think. But I definitely do things in both categories, I don’t think that makes me a masochist or sadist though. It’s not that extreme

of the two choices, I’m the former.
