    How to use "Sadism" in context?

    Sadism is the desire to inflict pain or suffering on someone else for personal pleasure or entertainment. It can be directed towards oneself or others, and may be acted out in a number of ways, from petty cruelty to serious violence.

    While sadism usually involves some kind of violence or brutality, it can also take less visible forms, such as degrading or humiliating someone. The enjoyment that sadists take from inflicting pain or suffering can be intense, and can be based on any number of different factors, including a desire to witness or sense power over someone else.
