Can an I-You event be painful?

Does Buber ever deal with the idea that a relational event can be unpleasant?

I'm trying to find situations in literature that correspond to I-You events, but in an unsettling way.

Would "unpleasantness" just be an aspect of experience, which means it can only exist inside the realm of I-it? Can terms like "enjoyment" even be applied to I-You events?
