my teacher often makes the point that pain is not a reliable tool for technique. some people can ignore pain, or are able to shut it off for enough time to kill the bastard who'se causing it. Inflicted pain often enrages the receiving end. Self inflicted pain is different, if you're causing your own discomfort by trying to force yourself out of a lock or by resisting a pin for example. relief is in your own hands then. I think causing pain for the hell of it is an invitation to find out whether your uke is one of those who go berserk.
