Panic Button

Personally, fear makes me want to run, not fornicate. But the proliferation of horror movies and roller coasters would seem to indicate that many, many people get such a thrill out being scared that they’re willing to pay for it. And skillful BDSM dominants have elevated the practice of scaring their submissives to a high art.
What makes fear arousing? Maybe it’s the jolt of adrenaline that accompanies a fright or the high that comes from surviving danger. An alarm-induced frisson does have that same quality of electrical current that comes with sexual arousal. Both probably involve the same internal systems and similar body chemistry and so might be easily confused at some early stage in development.
