Brutes, übers & Extreme Pain

Varied Attributes of Abuse

Real sadists understand the sociological, psychological, intellectual and biochemical aspects of the human body. Through manipulating these levers, they can maximize the effect while minimizing the residence the subject can muster. This is the difference between an intelligent practitioner and a mere brute.

Brutes in Action and Surrender

The brute continues action to the point that the effect no longer has meaning. Clear examples of this are the beating of a subject who screams wane, falls off, and passes out. There is no emotion involved other than the raw rage of the perpetrator and the entirely meaningless existence of the subject. This type of activity is absolutely dehumanizing for both the subject and brute. Neither retains those aspects of emotional awareness, which separates sociopaths from psychopaths.  Note that brutes are always psychopaths; they have no sense of any value of the object they are using and have no sense of when to stop.


Equally, those individuals actively seeking this level of torment are merely the flip side of the psychopath or become an über-masochist/dolcett-seeker. übers seek the effect is because the mind resigns itself to the pain and accepts the inevitability of the situation. Realizing the complaints mean nothing, no salvation is coming, the subject acquiesces. ​Some seek to go over the edge, revive and repeat. The cyclical nature is the single driving motivator to make an individual “feel alive.” The death-wish type personae will always put themselves into the way of extreme harm or push others to the point they react accordingly. Upon finding a brute, they mesh well but sometimes with peril fewer results. It isn't easy to find the balance, and if achieved, they will continually satisfy each other. If not, then one will eventually lose the edge, and the pairing will end.

The Brain Preserves and Protects

It is known that the body does produce endorphins in response to prolonged, continuous exercise, abuse, sexual activity or stressful situations. On the physical side, endorphins kick in, nullifying the pain. The effect besides blocking pain is euphoria, appetite reduction, and increase libido associated with the release of sex hormones. Some individuals have also had measurable pheromone production, which stimulates those around them. 

The Natural High

Endorphins are a chemical in the brain that interferes with other neurotransmitters. There are numerous types of endorphins releases, all keyed for either physical or emotional pain. Some even react to stress. While reflective of minimizing the effect of the stimulus, they have a harsh impact on the body.

Low endorphin levels have a direct connection to the occurrence of PTSD. In contrast, high endorphin levels produce the “runner’s high,” trance-like “sub-state” and are attributed to the “de-intellectualizing” of individuals. There are issues as sufficient endorphins will block most stimuli, therefore, allow massive trauma to the physical body. Secondly, in an attempt to flush these from the system, the body filters them from the blood in the liver and passes them out through the kidneys and bladder. The highly toxic nature of the endorphins as they break down causes trauma to the internal organs.  Endorphins can be found in the pituitary gland, in other parts of the brain, or distributed throughout the nervous system.

Foods to Stimulate

Certain foods (chocolate or chilli peppers) also enhanced endorphins production. It is mostly why some cultures develop a craving for chillies, and most individuals “love” chocolate. The spicier the pepper, or the purer the chocolate, the more endorphins produced. The release of endorphins explains the comforting feelings that many people associate with and the craving for these foods in times of distress. It is good to have the subject consume chocolates and chillies 20 minutes before an extreme session.

Rhythm Method

Knowing this is why almost every proficient sadist changes up the rhythm, location and type of activity.  This keeps the endorphin levels reasonable but NOT contrary, prolonging the experience indefinitely or until the sadist exhausts.  This is where to apply skill and variety to extend the sensation. The duration of activity is directly related to the level of sexual frustration, which then turns into desire and almost an animalistic need for the subject to become also sexually violated.  This is a trick of using the body’s chemistry and the emotional roller coaster against the subject. The shy and reserved will become totally wanton with the correct application of pain and the mental blocks removed, replaced only by the desire to be used, and serve as an opportunity to receive their chemical and emotional reward.

Craving the Pain

There are those individuals who crave being a brute or being used by a brute. This effectively bypasses all of the intellectual and emotional components and goes directly to the raw chemical reaction. The “rush” comes from being or using a piece of meat to the point of complete collapse.

Finding a Balance

Some sadists are not brutes but can compartmentalize their emotions and become sufficiently remorseless that they can exhibit the qualities of a brute with an über while reverting to less dangerous role others. Typically these individuals are brilliant and able to operate in a segmented style.  This segmentation allows each character to be fully aware of the other’s role while not acting out in non-practical situations. This is significantly different than schizophrenic in that the individual is always aware and in control of the switch of the roles, and roles do not manifestly change the personality of the individual, only the ability to accept or disregard limits based on a relationship pairing.
