From cardiac arrest to death/ What is erotic asphyxia and is it healthy in

Erotic asphyxia is the popular term for sexual breathing play. This type of sexual activity involves intentionally stopping breathing for you or your partner. People who choose to do this say it can increase arousal and make orgasms more intense.

Many sexual activities have some risks. " Erotic asphyxiation is really very dangerous and can lead to serious damage, including cardiac arrest, brain damage from lack of oxygen and death," says Janet Brito, who specializes in sex therapy. "Many experts advise against it." 

So it is not without risk. It can even be deadly if you don't take proper precautions.

Physiological reason: During breath play, you or your partner restricts oxygen to the brain. This is the first step of the process. When oxygen levels are low, you may feel lightheaded or dizzy. But when breathing is freed up, oxygen and blood begin to circulate freely again, you may feel a heightened sense of satisfaction. This is because dopamine, serotonin and endorphins are released.

Psychological reason: This activity can make both partners "submissive" or dominant. This dynamic provides them with more excitement.

Physical reason: Due to blocked breathing, the body can mistake the surge of endorphins and hormones as something positive, pleasurable. In reality, hormones are triggered by the body's defense response. But in the juxtaposition of emotions and pleasure, these sensations can seem more like "pain is pleasure" than warning signals from your brain and body.

If you act carefully, they are not foreseen, but not excluded. Some possible effects are: coughing, disorientation, muscle weakness, numbness, drowsiness, loss of coordination. The most dangerous effects: brain damage, damaged larynx, heart attack.

Responsible breath play needs three things

Education: Take the time to learn about the anatomy of the neck, head and chest. This will help you better understand the limits of pressure and force. This will also help you avoid injuries.

Communication: Before taking action, it's best to communicate your mutual interests in detail – specifically what types of boundaries are necessary.

Consent: You and your partner should discuss boundaries before you get into the heat, and consent should be given at each stage of your sex game. Do not give approvals if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
