    Afraid in the sense that deep in the back of your mind there's a lingering fear that he might physically abuse you. Is it a fear you would like to put at ease, or does it turn you on?

    Lol, it's more likely he's afraid of me hitting him. But I would never...

    There is no fear whatsoever.

    And having been fearful of a boyfriend in the past, I can safely say that it does not turn me on... daft thing to ask really.

    Obviously women should fear their boyfriends, males being the dominant sex and all.

    How can being afraid your bf is gonna break your bones (literally) be a turn on?! Have to be a proper psycho IMO to find it such...The person you love should be someone who will protect you, not the one causing you harm...

    Let's say women are attracted to dominate alpha male types. Part of that dynamic is physical aggression, which is why some women are prepared to accept, and some even attracted to, the fact that some of that aggression might be taken out on them.

    It's still strange and not right IMO.

    I wouldnt imagine you'd be attracted to the prospect of being hurt, but rather the fact that your boyfriend is physically aggressive and domineering. Also, I'd imagine some women would confuse that aggression with strength and thus perceive their partner as more able to protect them.

    To put it in laymans terms, some women will date a guy who knocks them about a bit, and assume it means he can knock other people about too.
