People who partake in BDSM have higher pain thresholds, according to new research

“Wuyts and colleagues discuss several reasons why BDSM practitioners might have a higher pain threshold. From a biological standpoint, experiencing repetitive pain can lead to habituation, a reduced physiological response to pain. It is also of note that the submissives showed heightened endocannabinoid levels after the pain play, which has been connected to elevated pain thresholds. Further, sexual arousal has been found to have a pain-relieving effect and to increase pain threshold.”
