Human sexuality : an encyc., 1994: p. 528 ("sadomasochistic interaction is explicitly sexual and must be mutually defined in that way by participants. Acts of dominance and submission outside of the sexual arena are simply not perceived by participants as fitting the criteria of sadomasochism. Outside the sadomasochistic scene, dominants are not cruel, nor are submissives necessarily passive. It is only within the sexual context that such behavior is perceived as appropriate.") p. 435-437 (in entry under paraphilias: sadomasochism, sexually attracted to or aroused by reciprocal interaction of sadist with masochist; algophilia, sexually attracted to or aroused by pain)

Catch-all term much used in North America to lump together those perves who play with physical pain and those who don't, reflecting a concern that the term SM, with its associations with pain, is not always appropriate. See also BD, SM; SM: Abbreviation for sadomasochism)
