Carradine may have died during auto-erotic sex act

Kill Bill Star, David Carradine may have died during auto-erotic sex act
London (ANI): 'Kill Bill' star David Carradine, who was found dead in a Bangkok hotel room, may have died from a botched attempt at auto-erotic asphyxiation, says Thai police. The martial arts icon, whose 'Kung Fu' TV series reflected his signature combination of slam-bang action and calm reflection, was discovered hanging naked in the wardrobe with a cord around his neck and genitals.

The cause of his death appeared to be suicide at first but now the police believe that the star would have died while performing a sexual act on himself which accidentally led to asphyxiation.

"There was a rope tied around his neck and another rope tied at his sex organ, and the two ropes were tied together and hung in the closet," Sky News quoted Police commander Lieutenant General Worapong Siewpreecha as saying.

"Under these circumstances we cannot be sure that he committed suicide but he may have died from masturbation," Siewpreecha added.


Auto-erotic asphyxiation (AEA) is the term used to describe the practice of cutting off the blood supply to the brain through self-applied suffocation methods while masturbating to orgasm. The interference of blood supply to the brain brought on by AEA can induce cerebral anoxia, a deficiency of oxygen in the brain. It is thought that the lack of blood flow and oxygen can intensify sensations, producing sensations of giddiness, lightheadedness, or exhilaration that can heighten the orgasmic experience. It's also possible that the helplessness and self-endangerment inherent in the techniques enhance the person's sexual gratification.

Of course, this same self-endangerment that may provide a thrill to the person carrying out AEA also weakens one's self-control and judgment, which can easily result in accidental death. Exactly how many people engage in AEA is unknown, and the practice almost always remains a secret until a person dies accidentally. It's estimated that between 500 and 1000 deaths occur annually in the United States from this dangerous type of masturbation. While it is thought to be practiced more often by adolescent or young adult guys, a small number of women die from AEA every year.

If a person does not die from cerebral anoxia, brain or tissue damage could possibly occur, depending on how long the brain and body are deprived of oxygen. A person also risks lacerating, cutting or bruising the neck, trachea, and esophagus, depending on the suffocation or strangulation technique used.

These immediate threats to the brain and body, including death and brain damage, make auto-erotic asphyxiation one of the riskiest of all sexual behaviors.
