  1. Marquis de Sade was the most famous sadist ever, so famous that sadism was even named after him. He was among the first to publicly express sexual preferences of this kind and he wrote many works on the subject of pain for the purpose of sexual thrill, which further got him in whole lot of trouble. In that sense, he is what can be considered a pioneer in the domain of BDSM. It might be interesting to note that he was born as early as 1740, when his libertine lifestyle was far more shocking than it would be now. However, it is important to keep in mind that it seems like he didn’t care much about the matter of consent, as many of his employees left his service due to alleged sexual abuse, which makes his approach crucially different from the contemporary BDSM practices that take consent extremely seriously.
