"Love, sex, pain and violence all stimulate the release of similar chemicals and hormones in the human body. Endorphins that are released in painful experiences are often perceived as pleasurable. Stress and pain can also stimulate the serotonin and melatonin production in the brain which transforms painful experiences into pleasure. The release of adrenaline and nor adrenaline in pain can also cause a pleasurable 'rush'. Normal human biological response actually supports the complex and mysterious link between pain and pleasure." Wendy StrgarIm curious to the links as to what makes only a select few people *like* pain ?.Is it that only few people have the correct links and pathways so they experience that *normal* response?If it is a *normal* response why is it surrounded by so much taboo, is it the way we have been conditioned?.
