    I've been observing many patients now but all of them are mainly criminals in asylums. Although criminology is VERY interesting, I'm stumped in my overall impression on sadism and its role in murder. I know what it means, I know how it's used, but everyone is both a sadist and a mascohist, right? It's impossible not to be, but it possible not to know exactly which part plays the dominant role... but I don't know exactly what to make of sadism/masochism's role in psychopathy versus dementia...

    not possible to know which plays the dominat role? WTF? let's see, do i like getting hurt?Does it satisfy me? yes? I'm a masochist. Do i like hurting people and being in control to be satisfied? yes? i'm a sadist.... am i missing something here?

    A masochistic psychopathic murderer? something doesn't seem to be adding up here.

    You have jumped to conclusions! Most people are neither sadistic or masochistic! What is usual and characteristic of most people is that we are social animals that evolved to need other people around, to care for others and to know what morality is. People who have perseptable sadistic or masochistic feelings are neurotic or psychotic. They are a minority.

    I assume you work in an insane asylum. Your charges have distorted your understanding. They are there because they are NOT normal, of course.

    Even women who are often beaten by their husbands are usually not masochistic. They are ruled by fear and helplessness. Their husbands are not sadistic. They are depressed and desperate, filled with anger they do not know how to express. Our weak and aimless society is doing that to people.
