Kink brings up a question

I just read something about autoerotic asphyxiation and ... wait, before I go on, let's agree that that calling it "breath play" is a desperate attempt to make it sound mysterious and sexy when it's really not.

So I just read something about autoerotic asphyxiation and I remembered this "game" that the boys used to play in elementary school. A kid would lean over and hyperventilate, then stand up quickly while someone else gave him a bearhug. This would usually make the kid pass out for about 30 seconds. Why was this fun? A question for the ages. Anyway, what I'm wondering is, was this "game" the start of a life-long love affair with oxygen deprivation for any of my classmates? If so, did their life-long love affair prematurely end a long life?

  1. We used to do that too. It wasn't fun, exactly, but it was interesting. You got to slide to the floor, see some flashing lights, lose a little time, and come to looking up at your friends, who were usually laughing nervously. All this had no effect on my sexual predilections, so far as I can tell.
