More About Asphyxiation

To be asphyxiated is to have your oxygen restricted. Some individuals find this sensation to be arousing and pleasurable, and, as such, is a common practice in the BDSM scene. There are many fetishes surrounding asphyxiation, whether it is an individual that enjoys the feeling of being asphyxiated or a dominant that finds pleasure in providing the asphyxiation. Anything that has to do with breath play or regulation can be considered to be a form of asphyxiation.
