This is a place for all sorts of off-topic discussion.

You can post anon or un-anon, per your personal preference, as usual.

All I ask is that you stay civil and (hopefully) friendly.

If you also want to use this thread to try to find a beta for a fic, or ask a brit-pick-ish question, I think that would be an acceptable use. Have fun!

Re: Autoerotic asphixiation vs other ways of passing out

I've never passed out, but I had a period (lasting for about a year) a couple of years back when I'd slightly black-out for a second or so and collapse once a month because of what probably was low blood-pressure and hormones, and standing up suddenly/rising from a crouch/stretching for something high up would mostly be the cause of it.

Before I blacked out, I'd feel like I was falling, even thought I wasn't (yet), and I would see streaks of light that were really similar to when they go into hyperspace in Star Wars, like shooting out from the center-point of my vision, but mine would either flash in white, yellow or orange. I'd see this even if my eyes were shut. I also felt some pressure on my breastbone (?? not english-speaker but the part beneath your collar-bone but above your beasts) and I would feel tingles at the back of my ears and my neck, sometimes running down my back. My hearing would also grow slightly muffled, as if the sounds around me blended together. Then it would go black and I'd come to again while falling down and catching myself on reflex.

Basically the world outside myself grew dim and what I foremost perceived was myself and my body; limbs, breathing, thoughts. Very self-centered. Some of the sensations were pleasant, like the tingling down my ears and neck and the feeling of falling, but my mind knew what was coming and it was frightening to loose control of my body like that. And there's some really dirty floors you don't want to land on...

Hope this was to some help. I haven't written every sensation there was, because that would be too much text, but feel free to ask if there's something more you want to know.
