Hi guys I'm working on a short story in which the main character is a masochist, he purposely goes into situations that will fail and devastate him in the end. He's a best-selling author and writes about these personal tragedies.
To establish head authority (people who read Chuck's essay "establishing authority" know what I'm talking about) I need to find accurate facts on masochism. Wikipedia has a short entry on it, but because its not recognized in the DSM (the bible of psychologists around the world), there is little published information about it.
Can anyone help me find good sources on masochism, also known as self-defeating personality disorder?
