Scientists understood that physiological arousal — the increase in the pulse and the emission of hormones in the brain can play a key role in explaining why so many people find recreational fear so attractive.

Usually, fear is considered negative (and disgusting) emotion arising to protect people from damage to them and designed to keep us away from dangers.
