Women who act as "submissive" during the BDSM sexual act are less empathetic to the suffering of other people.

According to a study published in the journal Neuropsychologia, women who enjoy being tied to bed or being spanked during sexual intercourse are less moved when they see other people in pain and even find them exciting.

Experts believe that BDSM (bondage, discipline, dominance and submission, and sadomasochism) makes people less empathetic to the emotions of others because they are insensitive to pain.

Previous research suggests that people who participate in sexual fetishes score better on psychological and personality tests because they are more outgoing and open to new experiences, in addition to being less neurotic.

Researchers from Jinan University, China, analyzed a BDSM web forum and discovered that submissive women are less likely to empathize with others than dominant women or any man who is a BDSM follower.

From this site, the scientists recruited 32 submissive women for the study, as well as 32 women who do not take part in BDSM.

MAN STAYED WITH SEVERE RENAL INJURY AFTER A VIOLENT SESSION OF BDSM

A man "fiercely" tied to a wooden bench during a violent sexual session suffered a serious kidney injury while being whipped 1,000 times with a whip and cane.

Doctors say the 61-year-old man without a name suffered the injury because he was crushed against the hard surface, which put pressure on his organs.

They also claim that some of the blows from their anonymous partner accidentally strayed into their kidney area and could not urinate.

The German man, who has been an avid admirer of BDSM for seven years, was told he might have to start dialysis if his kidneys could not work again.

Fortunately, the man, who was left with deep scratches and bruises on his buttocks and thighs, recovered after three days and was able to urinate again.

The first case of this type recorded in the medical literature was published in the British Medical Journal Case Reports by doctors in Stuttgart.

His terrible experience has convinced him to "reduce the intensity". of his BDSM, however, has refused to give up the habit, which according to him gives him "joy."

The brain activity of all participants was recorded through scalp electroides, while photographs of 12 women were shown.

Four of the women had painful expressions, four neutral and four hurt in contexts BDSM & # 39;

The participants evaluated each photograph based on how unpleasant, pleasant and exciting it was.

The results suggest that women who enjoy submission find that the afflicted facial expressions of others are less annoying than controls.

When viewed in a BDSM context, they even find such expressions exciting.

BDSM submisses also have fewer changes in their brain activity when they see attenuated or neutral expressions, particularly in the N1 frontal lobe.

Previous research suggests that the N1 lobe is involved in the recording of threatening information. BDSM submisses may therefore view pain expressions as a lesser threat because they are willing to be uncomfortable during sex.

The submissive also have reduced activity in their frontal lobes P2, which are associated with pain and the processing of emotions. This suggests that the submissive feel less empathy.

When they were also asked how they relate to people on a day-to-day basis, many submissive people responded, "It's hard for me to see things from the other's point of view."

This comes after a previous investigation of the University of Tilburg, The Netherlands, which discovered that the followers of the BDSM are less neurotic, feel less rejection and worry less about what others think about them than about those who do not participate in sexual fetishes.

They even report that they are happier and more secure in their relationships.

Interestingly, the role a person plays when involved in BDSMbehavior seems to be related to a person's psychological profile.

The dominant ones tend to be the most balanced, the least submissive and the intermediaries (who enjoy dominating and being dominated) are in the middle.
