A psychiatry/psychology Q

Is Bondage-Domination-Sadism-Masochism sexual fetish normal? There have been many psychopaths with sadist mentalities. But B-D-S-M proponents argue that it is just a sexual fetish and not a real mental disorder. How much of this is true?

Dear User Any sexual practice or for that matter any behaviour is considered abnormal or needing intervention if it causes distress to the person impairs his functioning or causes distress to those around him. In this case a person's partner. Until then they are mere variations of normalcy.
