Movies with a sado/masochism theme?

It came up over cocktails. We could only come up with five or six...

3. Ben Hur
Lots of sweating male muscles, and lots of whipping action. You can tell Moses and Messala have thoughts about each other. That was back in the day when Charlton Heston was sexy, not looney.

5. You'd be so into Jap Explotation movies.
Especially films by Takeshi Miike. Try his film "Audition" or, for a more gory experience, "Ichi the Killer".

I took your topic title to mean not only Sado-mosochism but also plain masochism.

I almost ordered it from netflix once, but lost my nerve.

11. "Crash"
Starring Holly Hunter and James Spader. Its about sexual stimulation from car wrecks. They go out and get into crashes and then have wild sex. They end up disabled by the end of the movie. It ends with Holly Hunter and another chick crawling into the back seat of a totaled car in a salvage yard and getting it on. Very weird. Here is an IMDB.com description.

"Based on the 1973 novel by J. G. Ballard. James and Catherine Ballard are a married couple whose sex life has been reduced to recounting tales of mutual infidelity to turn each other on. One night, James causes a head-on collision with a car carrying Dr. Helen Remington, killing her husband and severely injuring her and himself. Subsequent encounters with each other find that they are oddly sexually aroused by the danger of car accidents and potential accidents, and, with Catherine, soon fall in with a cult of car crash fetishists. The group is led by Vaughan, a former scientist twisted by his own disfigurement in an accident, and, as a result, a man obsessed with car crashes as a liberation of sexual energy. Vaughan inducts the Ballards and Dr. Remington into his surreal world of sex in the back seats of cars, re-enactments of famous car crashes (i.e. James Dean and Jayne Mansfield), viewing photos of accident victims and screenings of collision videos as pornography, and fender benders as mating rituals."
