The difference between these two disorders and BDSM is consent, in the case of sexual sadism disorder, and that BDSM does not go to the degree of causing ificant distress or impairing function, in the case of sexual masochism disorder. One landmark study published in in the Journal of Sexual Medicine backs Daveed up.
