Erotic Asphyxiation – Here’s How To Enjoy Being Choked During Sex

Choking your partner during sex is a popular move in porn films, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that some people are experimenting with erotic asphyxiation during sex. Breathe play is real, people. It’s when one partner deprives the other of oxygen in the name of sexual pleasure.

Some people love choking, and some people think it’s weird. To each her own, right? OK, in some cases, there are people who die from erotic asphyxiation. It sounds cliche but it’s important to remember that you and your partner’s safety always comes first before pleasure.

So, if you’re into being choked or choking your partner during sex, here’s how to enjoy it without accidentally dying.

Why do people find choking erotic?

Erotic asphyxiation occurs when the brain is deprived of oxygenated blood during sex. This may happen when your partner places his hands around your next to stop the blood flow. As the brain loses oxygen, the built-up carbon dioxide can create feelings of euphoria and increase sexual stimulation. Couples who participate in erotic asphyxiation have reported deeper sensations in their sexual organs when having sex.

The right way to choke & to be choked

Always be gentle and never put too much pressure on your partner’s throat. If you’re the one being choked, let it happen for a few seconds only, and then ~ breathe ~ in. Sure, people can probably hold their breath up to 30 seconds underwater, but the pleasure of sex may distort reality. Another option would be choking or to be choked when your partner holds you by the back of the neck. This is the safer option as the back of one’s neck is completely separate from your throat, so it doesn’t interfere much with your breathing.

An important tip before you choke, make sure it’s consensual

Discuss about your choking kinks with your partner as he may be uncomfortable with the idea of suffocating you or being the one who is suffocated. Plus, nobody appreciates being choked unexpectedly. We’d suggest to come up with a safe word, but you can’t say much while being choked, so a safe gesture, like holding two fingers up like a ‘peace’ sign, would work better.

    The thought of EVER letting anyone no matter who they are, or how much I trust them restrict my breathing in any way, shape, or form, or even merely feel like it is is a HARD limit, and is one of the hardest. It gives me anxiety, and distress even thinking about it, and something I could never see my myself consenting to. I’ve had a phobia of all forms of suffocation my whole life, and I’m not willing to over come, or break the Phobia/Hard Limit, nor will I ever. My question is this: Does this mean I have trust issues? Does that mean that I will magically be into it, or at least be okay with it when I do get to that level of trust, and that if I am still not okay with it, it is because I don’t trust my partner enough? Does that make me Sex-Negative, and just a Bland, Plain, Old Medicore Vanilla Prude no one will want to be with long term? Am I weak, or cowardly, or boring for never ever consenting to any forms of suffocationin a million years?
