— Jay Mohr

Acting is a masochistic form of exhibitionism. It is not quite the occupation of an adult.
Sir Laurence Olivier masochist quote

I became a feminist as an alternative to becoming a masochist.
— Sally Kempton

I think I've still got a bit of a sado-masochistic streak in me, because if I'm not going to be restricted by corsets and covered in lace, then I still wind up wearing an ape-mask over my face. I do wonder how I get myself in these situations!
— Helena Bonham Carter

I'm very much a masochist at heart.
— masochist quotation by Ryan Kwanten
