Listen Sis, remember that Life is an illusion.
Masochism is the ILLUSION of humiliation, suffering, domination by doing harm to the so called Masochist. In reality, the Masochist is creating a play in which he gives his "dominators" the illusion that they have power and control over him. By doing this, the Masochist is manipulating them by making them comfortable to do things that he wants to be done to him!!! However, the Masochist himself probably does not realize this but I do!!!!
