Fear Play

Updated: JANUARY 30, 2015
Fear play describes any sexual activity that involves the use of fear to bring about sexual arousal.
In fear play, an individual's terrified mental state triggers a rush of adreline which causes arousal. Fear play is different from masochism, in which arousal is caused by an endorphin rush.

Fear play falls into a category of BDSM-related activities, marked by high physical or psychological risk, called "edge play."
