Showtime series I think.

I don't know. I just think that it must do something awful to the Mind to be sexually stimulated with long scenes of graphic group sex, then led directly into bloody violence like you can't believe.

I looked up once, to watch a sword slice the face of a man, then slowly slide down and off his skull.

i have met many in position of social authority that crave nothing more in fantasy thus are drawn via pornography
strangely maybe , in every society our civil servants show a higher preference towards bdsm expression than any other social grouping

In the 13th century, a group of Roman Catholics, known as the Flagellants, took this practice to its extreme ends. The Flagellants were later condemned by the Roman Catholic Church as a cult in the 14th century because the established church had no other control over the practice other than excommunication. Self-flagellation remains common in the Philippines and Latin America.
Some members of strict monastic orders, and some members of the lay organization Opus Dei, practice mild self-flagellation using an instrument called a "discipline", a cattail whip usually made of knotted cords, which is flung over the shoulders repeatedly during private prayer. Pope John Paul II took the discipline regularly.
St. Therese of Lisieux, a Carmelite nun of late 19th-century France who has now been declared a Doctor of the Church, is an influential example of a Catholic Saint who questioned prevailing attitudes toward physical penance. Her view was that loving acceptance of the many sufferings of daily life was pleasing to God, and fostered loving relationships with other people, more than taking upon oneself extraneous sufferings through instruments of penance. However as a Carmelite nun, she practiced voluntary corporal mortification.

Because practices such as starvation, sleep denial and flagellation are known to induce altered states, flagellation may be used by religious ecstatics and mystics as part of ritualistic practices or ceremonies to achieve unusual states of mind

It's much easier to repeat a mantra as ritual repetition induces you into the vibration and past the words and associative thoughts.

Martial artists also hammer bone to calcify tissue, but I don't reccomend it.
