So I am not the only person with this problem. HAH! People think I am weird because I actually love to be thrown. I would rather be thrown then throw in all honesty. Much more fun.
One of those! Pursuit of Vertigo.. Back in the university days there was a bunch of theory about why people gravitate toward different sports. (I know, this isn't a sport).
There were 7 main groupings. Can't remember them all, but they included
Vertigo (I like to be disoriented or upside down, or... - seems like Ashley is one of those)
Ascetic (I suffer for my sport)
Athletic (I like the movement, I guess)
Aesthetic (my body is more beautiful through sport, or, the movements of the sport are beautiful - not sure which)
Spiritual (not sure if that was included)

and, well, I forget the rest. There has probably been a lot more work done in the area with people dreaming up all sorts of things about why we train, but that was the western stuff from the 70s.
