What is sexual sadism?

Answer:

Getting sexually aroused by fantasies about doing psychological or physical harm to a victim. This can mean getting aroused by humiliating another person, who often consents to this, using pain-causing material during sexual contact, for example whips or chains. The person with whom there is sexual contact is often a sexual masochist.
