Is "auto-erotic asphyxiation" a new term? INXS lead singer Michael Hutchence died. Today's NY Post (pg. 16, col. 1) has this: Cops initally called it a suicide, but now say the death might have been caused when an act known as "auto-erotic asphyxiation" backfired. Auto-erotic asphyxiation is a dangerous way of enhancing sexual gratification that involves masturbating while cutting off the air supply, often by hanging. (Kids, don't try this at home--ed.) "Several friends of (Hutchence) have suggested that he has been involved in kinky sex over the years, and so we are exploring the possibility it is an auto-erotic death," a police source told The Post. What a concept. "Auto-erotic asphyxiation." Sounds like someone who is deathly in love with a car.
