Personal Quote:

Trivia:

The term 'sadism' has its origins in his name. The term, which is defined as 'deriving sexual pleasure from inflicting pain,' was coined by German psychiatrist Richard Freiherr von Krafft-Ebing in his book 'Psychopathia Sexualis' in 1886, 72 years after the Marquis' death. See more »
