When I connected with the BDSM community in 2008, I found so much more than a way to engage my kinks: a place to explore BDSM as well as my deepest human nature. For me, kink is not only sexual, but spiritual, emotional, and psychological, as well as a profound path for self- and other-exploration; in other words: intimacy, which may be my biggest kink. With years of mentoring, ministering, coaching, and teaching under my belt, I'm excited to share my ever expanding knowledge and experience with Dominant Guide readers, in a mutual learning process with you and the whole kink community. Rev was the lead author for Dominant Guide from 2012 to 2015

    I’m a self destructive dominant masochist I love pain and I love to make others cause me pain even when I’m at work I’ll push my body beyond it’s limits to feel said pain not for just pleasure reasons but for a sense of feeling something what am I what is the technical term

    Jdiz, by the sounds of it you might want to see a kink friendly therapist if you can. Coming from a background in psychology, I can say if youre being self destructive and it’s negatively impacting your life, you should seek professional help.
    If you’re just pushing yourself for the pain, and arent being self destructive with it, it’s possible you’re just a masochist. People want to feel pain for many reasons. Sometimes it’s pleasure, sometimes it’s to feel something.
