From A World of Sex
Jump to: navigation, search

Algolagnia is a fetish whereby someone receives sexual pleasure from receiving pain in erogenous areas, such as the genitals.


Algolagnia is different from the pain involved in activities such as BDSM in that there is rarely a submissive or dominant side involved, and all of the pain is concentrated on areas of high stimulation. A man with algolagnia may enjoy it when a woman stands on his testicles or uses devices to crush, cut or clamp them. The thought of such acts will leave many men squirming, but someone with algolagnia receives great sexual pleasure from this at a level that may not be be achieved from other sexual acts.
