Verbal humiliation

Verbal humiliation

Verbal humiliation is when a person humiliates another intensely through disparaging comments. This has two main aspects:

  • Bullying, which can happen in everyday life, in interactions between people with different levels of authority or self-confidence.
  • Erotic humiliation, as an erotic activity (eg, in a BDSM context). Some people find the idea of being humiliated powerfully arousing, due to the intense and mixed emotions of being humiliated and demeaned.
