Never. Abuse, be it physical or emotional, is not good for any type of relationship. That's why it's called abuse. However, I have heard of people who like some physical inflictions during their intimate moments. This is an entirely different thing since this practice is consensual. They have absolute control of the situation and they even have control words if they feel like everything's going awry. Well shall we judge? I think not. We have our own idiosyncrasies. It's just a matter of preference.

I think that would be an odd thing to believe. Beating or hitting the one you love is a repulsive thing even if it is just a fleeting thought. If you love someone your hands should never be placed on them unless it is in a gentle and loving way. I know people have those thoughts at times when their loved one is egging them on, but it isn't right nor love to harm those you love. I can't think of one for instance when hitting a loved one should be considered an act of love.

I don't believe that it's a symbol of love. I don't think a person would abuse another person out of love. They may love that person but that should never, never, be the reason to abuse someone. I don't think they love them self if they are abusing someone else. If you're ever in an abusive relationship, no matter how hard it may be, but leave. It is the best think for yourself. One thing I have learn from this life is to do whatever it takes to protect yourself from harms way.
