    That's broad. For starters, I could say pain and pleasure are "all in the mind" and may be learned, unlearned, reassigned and even swapped. For example an amputee may have "phantom pain" and do cognitive treatment not unlike stage magic to eliminate the pain. But note "all in the mind" doesn't mean imaginary. An epileptic seizure may be "in all the mind" since brain and mind are the same thing.

    not quite sure what your asking here

    the only 'correlation' I can think of would be both cause endorphins to be released, meaning technically pain is a form of pleasure. (although death causes masses of endorphins to be released too, so follow that one, pleasure is the same as dying? )


    On a psychological note both can be considered to be entirely fictional, created by your mind, It's possible to shut off the endorphin releases, essentially removing pain for example, some military sects practice the ability to do this consciously (can not spell that to save my life) and some people are born with a defect meaning they don't feel pain or pleasure, these guys usually become complete nutters (see Friday 13th films)

    Actually, usually babies born without pain usually lose their hands and feet because they are unable to gauge how much damage they are doing to themselves. This also happens with lepers as they lose feeling in their extremities.

    Here’s the fun thing. We make decisions based on what we THINK things will feel like in the future, not based on reality. It’s all about our PERCEPTION of reality.

    If you experience pain at a time of pleasure (such as being hit while having sex), then your body learns to associate the pain with the release of endorphins caused by the pleasure, to the extent where whenever you feel pain, endorphins are released, and you feel pleasure with it.

    Mothers giving birth also experience pain and it is more or less forgotten soon after. I have heard that pain is customarily excruciating for the first childbirth and is generally accepted as an inconvenience during future births. The reward worth more than the displeasure.
