LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T his week we focus on two different ways to get beat up: as a sport and as a "sport." Memphis Flyer's Chris Davis delves into the world of female boxing. On the other end of the spectrum, Nashville Scene's Michael Sims takes a peek into the world of leather--forget the lace--and sadomasochism in "Hurts So Good."

Elsewhere in Arts & Leisure, Nashville Scene's Margaret Renkl discusses the art of dealing with parenting chaos, plus a couple of looks at gallery showings and stage performances.
