Sexual sadism disorder is the condition of experiencing sexual arousal in response to the extreme pain, suffering, or humiliation of others. Several other terms have been used to describe the condition, and the condition may overlap with other conditions that involve inflicting pain. It is distinct from situations in which consenting individuals use mild or simulated pain or humiliation for sexual excitement. Sexual sadism disorder has been found to be potentially dangerous if paired with symptoms of emotional intensity disorder or psychopathy which increases the likelihood of one acting on their sexually sadistic fantasies.
