    Hello my friend told me that he went to a Chinese doctor and he pierced him with needles . I understood that and understand what мазохист literally but I don't know the real mean of "мазохист" in this sentence .I think it can be like a joke but don't understand it so hope someone can help me out with this

    "Мазохист" = masochist

    Maybe that was not a joke. Maybe your friend wanted to tell you that he liked the pain from those needles (that's the literal meaning). Or, if it was a joke, he wanted to tell you that he didn't like it at all but bore this procedure bravely.
