S&M is GOOD for you

I’ve been a bit busy lately (and fighting those winter doldrums), but this headline in the UK Mail Online made me perk up

S&M is GOOD for you: Researchers say sadomasochism can lead to an ‘altered state of consciousness’ similar to meditation

Now, how can you argue with research, right? Let’s see what they have to report.

Sadomasochism can give similar results to meditation and leave people in an ‘altered state of consciousness’, new research has found.

Experts believe the practice may cause bloodflow in the brain to be altered is a way similar to a ‘runners high’ or some types of meditation.

I imagine that this isn’t limited just to BDSM play, but it’s certainly nice to know about.

The results found that people playing the pain-receiving role performed badly in a part of the brain called the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, Ambler said.

So, after a period of good sex, you can’t function properly? How can I get some research grant money? You know, for science.


And while we’re thinking about research money, let’s imagine what we could do with it.
