Enjoying pain (both giving and taking) is healthy as long as it is done for the right reasons (as with everything in life).
Eating because you are emotional and want to hide the pain is unhealthy. Eating because you genuinely enjoy your piece of cake, is healthy.
If you want pain for the relieve of stress, relieve of emotional pain, because you hate yourself.. not so healthy, but falls under mental condition, not BDSM (although some people might try and hide their mental condition labeling it BDSM).
If you want pain because you like the endorphins, you like the feeling it gives you, you enjoy it without ulterior motive... Nothing wrong with that
I do appreciate the kind replies in response to my posts since I know many here disagree with me.
I don't enjoy pain. Never have and never will. I enjoy comfort, pleasure and peace. I do realize that I must withstand pain in order to come out stronger or more wise. I understand that pain can also make a person much more appreciative of the blessings of good health.
Sex already releases endorphins, so one can receive them without the pain!
