Erotic Asphyxiation or Breath Play is the intentional restriction of oxygen to the brain for the purpose of sexual arousal, but Breath Play is more than just an erotic exploration; it’s a journey into the very depths of our primal being.
Breath Play brings about the Bardo (“transitional state of being”) were one can experience intimacy and ultimately orgasm on a different plain of existence.
