Sadomasochism: Ideas in Psychoanalysis
Estela V. Welldon (au)
This concise book contests the view that sadomasochism (SM) is an isolated ‘perversion’. Using examples from lit., film, opera & other media, Welldon explores the psychodynamic aspects of SM from the writings of de Sade & von Sacher-Masoch to the contemporary underground S&M club scene. Welldon illuminates the dynamics of power & control in everyday family life & sexual relationships. Investigates the downward spiral of domestic violence & child abuse, & the ‘malignant bonding’ between some couples. Is SM invariably present in the victim-perpetrator cycle? Is it learned or innate? Are sadism & masochism opposites, or do they complement one another? Are they specifically related to the genders? Welldon asks these questions & many more.
