We cannot put in enough caveats here about the dangers of asphyxiation and plead with our readers to research it thoroughly if interested or investigated in breath play and then to partake with experienced guys. And off course don’t try it anywhere near alcohol or as part of chemsex.
That said many guys find this incredibly horny and exciting. The feeling of ultimate submission, the gradual feeling of increasing danger as you gasp and fight for breath, the incredible risk factor and the ultimate unrivalled domination of the Top…..your very life is in his hands. Obviously safe words are imperative and also hand signals of when to ease down or stop are a must. Defined as reducing the amount of Oxygen to the brain for the act of sexual arousal… the common gay term is a ‘Gasper’. Believe it or not it was originally used by the medical profession for erectile dysfunction. Thank goodness we now have Viagra. The idea for this most likely came from subjects who were executed by hanging. Observers at public hangings noted that male victims developed an erection, sometimes remaining after death (a death erection), and occasionally ejaculated when being hanged.
Author George Shuman describes the effect as such, “When the brain is deprived of oxygen, it induces a lucid, semi-hallucinogenic state called hypoxia. Combined with orgasm, the rush is said to be no less powerful than cocaine, and highly addictive.” REMEMBER GUYS – LIKE COCAINE ASPHYXIATION PLAY IS DANGEROUS.
There are Four types or groups: hanging, self asphyxiation, plastic bag over the face and being choked by a tops hands. Each practitioner will have their favored method and will once the favored route is discovered, not venture into the other types. The most famous Asphyxiation fan was Hollywood megastar David Carradine who starred in everything from Death Race 2000 to the Cannonball Run, on to both Tarantino’s Kill Bill films whilst on TV in JJ Abrams breakout ‘Alias’ and most famously he was the star and face of the Kung Fu TV series and phenomenon of the 70’s. In 2009 he died and was found hanging by a rope after having an orgasm and then his partners went on record about his extreme kinks.
ALPHATRIBE TOP TIP – Rather than choke holds or a polythene bag with full agreement from a sub, try using a clear plastic shower cap as the elasticated edge will fit snugly around the guys face leaving the tops hands free to jerk him off, work his balls, ass or nips or indeed even enable the Dom to stroke his shaft onto the shower cap hugely excited the gasping bottom at the sight of his jizz flow.
Asphyxiation is always risky and should be researched or done with experienced partners with full rules, agreement and knowledge. We know lots of our readers do it which is why we report on it and this is an information piece and in no way are we glorifying the practice. We don’t want you to end up like Michael Hutchence of the band INXS tied to a door with a orange in your mouth dying horribly or something just for kicks. We value our readers health at all costs but know what sick bunch of assbandits you are so AYOR (At Your Own Risk) – this is as potentially dangerous as Fucking Ryan Cummings at the end of a party weekend or pulling out of Dolf Dietrich at his ‘No Loads refused’ events without depositing … have fun with breath control but if in doubt don’t do it.
