From this screenshot, which I think is from ひぐらしのなく頃に命, Shion says she might have 'Sな気質', or an S-temperament. What does that mean? I tried googling, but the results are beyond my level of Japanese.

I may have a bit of sadistic temperament!

Although this is originally a term related to sexual pleasure, whether it has a sexual implication depends on the context.
