Saddo-Masochists

That would be a saddo/masochist (probably more a saddist, and less masochist).

A fascinating documentary on the life of Bob Flanagan a saddo masochist dying of Cystic Fibrosis

She looked like a Madame straight out of a saddo-masochist dungeon

About a hundred ghits. I can whip up about the same number of awful puns but I shall have to discipline myself.

Re: Saddo-Masochists

I can’t imagine this is anything more than a misspelling.

Re: Saddo-Masochists

The pronunciation [sædɪst], which some consider more “correct” than [seʲdɪst], would most naturally be spelt saddist . ( Saddist/saddism is quite a common spelling. Misspellings of masochist/ism are also many.)


*If the human mind were simple enough for us to understand,
we would be too simple-minded to understand it* .

(Possible Corollary: it is, and we are .)

Re: Saddo-Masochists

You’re almost certainly right, the both of you. My amusement overcame my better judgement.

Amusement is a wonderful thing.
