I think that the desire to inflict pain is also a sign of mental instability, but who am I to define unstable. I think that taking any risks that could result in the injury of your partner, whether your partner is willing or not, just seems like the opposite of love to me. It's risking destruction. If your partner is willing to risk to be hurt or injured, wouldn't you think that s/he has some issues that need to be resolved? Self-destructive tendencies are always negative. I think when someone takes advantage of the self-destructive tendency of another, for sexual desire, that it is an inherently unfair and thus un-loving relationship at it's core. However, I obviously am limited in experience so this is just the point of view from which I look at the world, and I know there are many aspects of life that I haven't experienced.
