Fiery delicious torture

Why is it we love spicy food? As we munch down on some (perhaps tasteless) food decide to add a flaming torture of hot sauce to it and suddenly we love it! Thinking to ourselves MMMMMM this is much better now as the tears of pain drip down your cheek… sweet sweet painful joy from our eyes. “I completely enjoyed hurting my mouth in a fiery delicious torture.”  You think as you sweat and blow your runny nose. What is it that makes us think we enjoy all this pain in our mouths? I do it myself, sometimes I even add more if I’m in an adventurous mood.
