 Sadism is sexual pleasure in the infliction of pain or humiliation upon another person, while masochism refers to pleasure from receiving the pain. These practices are often related and are collectively known as sadomasochism as well as S&M or SM. These terms may be used clinically, in psychotherapy,​ to describe mental illnesses, psychopathology or counterproductive coping mechanisms. Additionally,​ these terms may describe consensual practices—often sexual, but not necessarily so—within the [[BDSM]] community.\\ Sadism is sexual pleasure in the infliction of pain or humiliation upon another person, while masochism refers to pleasure from receiving the pain.
