More commonly known as "Autoerotic Asphyxiation"

Very topical as of mid-June 2009 (see "usage"). This refers to the act of (a male) hanging oneself by the neck from a fixed object, say.... a closet rod, and tying up or otherwise restricting the bloodflow to the genitalia. This can be done either alone or with a partner. Subsequently the person, thus restrained is either masturbated to orgasm, or (if the hands are left untied-a wise choice) services himself.

The idea, apparently, is to bring oneself close to death, while simultaneously achieving orgasm. Practitioners claim very intense orgasms.
Usage: Carradine was doing the old Strangle & Dangle while filming in Thailand, and something went tragically awry.

Note: There is a theory that people who are extremely wealthy, having experienced virtually every (common) sexual perversion known to humanity (because they are willing to pay for others to engage in these acts), become bored and unable to come. They then turn to evermore, uh obscure and deviant acts to satisfy their cravings. These include, but are certainly not limited to: Fecal application; coprophilia; bestiality with all manner of creatures, some compliant, others less so; infliction and reception of intense pain (including burning and mutilation) and strangulation.

As of this writing, "Kung-Fu" actor David Carradine appears to have died while engaging in this practice in Thailand. It is unknown if he was alone or had a partner present. Michael Hutchence, lead singer of the band INXS is also reputed to have expired under similar circumstances.
