I go to the store and I see a brightly colored and neat package reading, "Genuine leather whip; great for your sadomasochism-loving cowboy or boss!"

A compound word mixing the words sadism (sexual pleasure from hurting others) and masochism (the sexual pleasure from getting hurt. Psychologists recognize this as a sign of sexual/physical abuse from a person's past and it is also a psychological disorder. It is part of BDSM (bondage & submission, dominance & submission, and sadism & masochism). People aren't always a fan of doing both, but it is common.
