This Men's Health story on chokingspecifically, has been viewed nearly half a million times. It carries some real risks, especially if people do it without thoughtful discussion of consent, health, and safety. Perhaps the most well known form of breath play is choking, but there are actually many forms, says Good Vibrations staff sexologist Carol Queen.
Breath play may simply involve someone telling a partner to hold their breath.
As you might suspect, this is dangerous—more on that below. Some might even consider submerging in water during sex a type of breath play. Breath play is sometimes known as erotic asphyxiation; autoerotic asphyxiation is when someone cuts off their own air supply during masturbation. This act, by the way, has a long and peculiar history : In the s, onlookers observed hanging victims getting erections, and some doctors began using asphyxiation as a solution to impotence.
No matter how you slice it, breath play is dangerous stuff. Autoerotic asphyxiation alone is estimated to cause to deaths per year in the U. Some s that you should stop immediately include coughing, numbness, pain, blurry vision, and muscles going limp, says Harrison.
Unwanted choking during sex is a serious problem, one that needs to be scrupulously avoided.
Typically, in BDSM scenarios, partners use a safe word to indicate when they want to cease a sexual activity. Since this is obviously difficult when your breath is restricted, Queen recommends deating an action that serves as a safe word, like dropping a ball or a set of keys.
All right, just to drill it home once more, please proceed with caution; there is no completely safe form of breath play. But if you want to try it, experts say this the least dangerous way is for one partner to verbally tell the other to hold their breath, then say when they can breathe again—though, if you feel the need to breathe before that, please do. Queen says you could even combine breath play with safe asphyxiation play sexual activity: tantric breathing. One way to do this is for one partner the dom to order the other the sub to breathe in certain patterns, such as very quickly—about three times a second—or very slowly and deeply.
They can combine this with other commands, like "don't break eye contact with me until I say you can," or even other forms of kink like collaring. The two partners could also synchronize their breathing. This is all to say, when it comes to breath play, less is more. And if you can get creative about keeping the kink element without the added danger, a little bit can go a long way.
