Definition


Erotic asphyxiation, or asphyxiophilia, is a sexual game that consists of restricting the amount of oxygen to the brain in order to intensify sexual pleasure. It is a common practice in sadomasochistic settings, and is potentially dangerous. Erotic asphyxiation may be undertaken alone or with a partner, through strangulation, suffocation, hanging, or chest compression. It is generally practiced by males. The "scarf game" is a variant of erotic asphyxiation.
