Fear is considered as one of the six basic emotions of humans and according to Freud, there would be no existence of life without the existence of fear.
Exploring and playing with this deep and universally occurring emotion and the side effects in body and mind can be a far reaching and a rewarding experience for both the person who initiates the fear and the person who experiences the fear.
However, playing with this basic emotion can be very demanding and even cause serious harm if the knowledge about the risks, both physically and mentally, and the backgrounds of incurrence, consequences and the characteristics of fear is lacking.
