Gerard Couzens reports for The Mirror, Dec. 6, 2015 that a 91-year-old woman in Portugal is believed to have suffocated during a “sex game” with a married 49-year-old neighbor.
The elderly woman was found on her bed naked from her waist down next to a sex toy in Aveiro, 50 miles south of Porto, Portugal. Autopsy results showed she had died from asphyxia from a sex game that spiraled out of control.
A married dad-of-two living next door was arrested after DNA analysis of semen recovered from the scene. He was released on bail after going before a judge.
Police believe the woman’s death was a “tragic accident” as there was no sign of a forced entry and nothing had been taken from the house.
Another neighbor described the woman, who lived alone, as being “very active” despite her age, and that the male married neighbor often went round her house to do odd jobs.
Aveiro, known as the Venice of Portugal, is a city of 78,450 population (in 2011) on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean.
Erotic asphyxiation is the intentional restriction of oxygen to the brain for the purposes of sexual arousal.
It is said that when the carotid arteries on either side of the neck carrying oxygen-rich blood from the heart to the brain, are compressed, as in strangulation or hanging, the sudden loss of oxygen to the brain and the accumulation of carbon dioxide can increase feelings of giddiness, lightheadness, and pleasure.
The idea for erotic asphyxiation most likely came from observations that men who were executed by hanging developed an erection and occasional ejaculation when being hanged.
However, deaths often occur when the loss of consciousness caused by partial asphyxia leads to loss of control over the means of strangulation, resulting in death. Autoerotic asphyxiation is particularly hazardous because the person suffocating him/herself has no partner to intervene in a life-threatening situation.
The great majority of known erotic asphyxial deaths are male. The mean age of accidental death is mid-20s, but deaths have been reported in adolescents and in men in their 70s.
Actor David Carradine died from accidental autoerotic asphyxiation at age 72 on June 4, 2009, according to the medical examiner who performed a private autopsy on the actor. His body was found hanging by a rope in a closet in his hotel room in Thailand, and there was evidence of a recent orgasm. Two of Carradine’s ex-wives, Gail Jensen and Marina Anderson, stated publicly that his sexual interests included the practice of self-bondage.
No wonder Our Lady of Fatima told the three shepherd children to whom she appeared in 1916-17 that “More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason.”
Sister Lucia, who was the last living Fatima seer until she died in 2005 at age 97, said this refers primarily to sins against chastity, also called sins of impurity. The reason is not because sins against chastity are the most grievous sins, but because they are the most common and because sins of impurity are less likely to be repented of than other sins.
