I feel pain.
Whoever says that they don’t (while sober) are lying. It hurts and that’s why I enjoy it. Pain is a turn on for me, so is blood. Love the feeling of being wounded. Love the reminder on my forearms and legs of whatever I did wrong that day, whatever someone else did wrong that way. It’s my body, might as well enjoy it.
