Can pain be an addiction? Jenny Valentish investigated the world of extreme sport and fitness, to understand the desire to push your body to the limit. Michael Winkler created a funny, endearing portrait of a boxer who discovered he had an extreme tolerance to pain. Steve Kendall asks about whether there’s pleasure in finding out about other people’s pain. Is it violent to beat up oneself?
