Sadism refers to sexual or non-sexual gratification in the infliction of pain or humiliation upon another person. Masochism refers to sexual or non-sexual gratification from receiving the infliction of pain or humiliation.
Often interrelated, the practices are collectively known as sadomasochism as well as S&M or SM. These terms usually refer to consensual practices within the BDSM community.
Many of Marquis de Sade's books, including Justine (1791), Juliette (1797) and The 120 Days of Sodom (published posthumously in 1905), are written from a cruelly sadistic viewpoint. Leopold von Sacher-Masoch's novel Venus in Furs (1870) is essentially one long masochistic fantasy, where the male principal character encourages his mistress to mistreat him.
In Pauline Réage's novel Story of O (1954), the female principal character is kept in a chateau and educated by a group of men using a wide range of BDSM techniques. "O"'s submission is depicted as consensual. A particular revelation of the story is that it is possible to gain power over someone as their victim.
As with many sexual interests, sadomasochism is a popular subject in erotica. While S&M erotica is often about consensual humiliation and power exchange, consent is often abandoned as serves fantasy. The contemporary novelist Anne Rice, best known for Interview with the Vampire, wrote the sadomasochistic trilogy The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty (1983–85) and Exit to Eden (1985) under the pseudonym of A. N. Roquelaure.
In Steven Shainberg's film Secretary (2002), the two leading characters fall in love with each other due to their dependence on one another as their sadomasochistic releases.
In the manga Bakuman the characters Mashiro and Takagi discuss sadomasochism and go as far as calling Mashiro a masochist.
Also in the manga Kimiaru, Anastasia Mistina is a masochist.
In the manga and anime Naruto, Akatsuki member Hidan is seen as an extreme masochist, frequently sacrificing himself to his evil god named Jashin. Hidan can also be seen as an sadomasochist, as he enjoys killing his victims tortuously while, at the same time, inflicting pain on himself.
