There is something thrillingly disturbing about the masochistic ideas people come up with, intentionally trying to cause physical pain to themselves and mental anguish to those watching.

Almost everyone participates in some form of masochism, whether its wearing super high heels and extremely uncomfortable clothes for the sake of fashion, or getting piercings and tattoos in order to make a beautiful statement. Torturous photography is often used in advertising campaigns in order to draw attention to a cause or idea because people can't help but stare at, and then hold onto those kinds of visuals.

With everything from fashion choices, advertisements, self-mutilation and expressive photography, intentional depictions of pain and suffering are consistently prevalent throughout. The strange and bizarre masochistic tenancies of the human race are really intriguing to document. Stats for 100 Agonizingly Masochistic Ideas Trending: Older & Popular
