Abstract

The 23-item Attitudes About Sadomasochism Scale (ASMS; Yost, 2010) assesses stereotypical and prejudicial attitudes about individuals involved in consensual, sexual sadomasochism. The full scale score may be used, but the scale also includes four subscales: Socially Wrong (the belief that SM behavior is morally wrong and socially undesirable); Violence (linking SM to violence against an unwilling partner); Lack of Tolerance (suggesting that SM cannot be an acceptable form of sexuality, even among willing partners); and Real Life (the belief that SM practitioners carry their SM interests into their daily lives).
