What makes you a sadist/masochist?

I had the experience of being caned and strapped in school, something most people won't have experienced in 80s. Kind of liked the lady teachers punishing me because it meant I was given higher attention. Then met my partner, she's way taller than me and can be a bit intimidating to strangers ![](upload://rA41UoqYzU9yrgGiJUyzuRc98GV.gif) One day, I asked her to be a bit rough to me and it began from there, the rest is history ![](upload://kym5tZ5EfyJxs6TKHB1Q2HtGSpK.gif)

How about you?
