Pain
(1)  An unpleasant sensation occurring in varying degrees of severity as a consequence of injury, disease, or emotional disorder.
(2)  Suffering or distress.

Pleasure
The state or feeling of being pleased or gratified.

(2)  In Marxist theory, the violent and historically necessary transition from one system of production in a society to the next.
