Giggles at the Palace
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

As mentioned in the rant post, I have nearly drowned, which would be useful if people do the jump-in-the-pool TGG possible ending :D

My experience was a loud ringing in my ears, severe disorientation and random flailing, quite bad fear (I was scared of water before this happened; you can imagine what I'm like now) and these weird visual hallucinations of spinning multicoloured lights gradually swallowing my vision from the sides. If you close your eyes and press into them really hard, it sort of looked like that. Or if you suffer from classic migraines, it was like the auras you get across your vision. When I was pulled out, I was crying, although I wasn't actually aware of it at the time. It took a very terrifying five or so seconds before I could even get enough air in my lungs to cough up the water I'd inhaled.

I've also suffered from fainting spells on occasion, and with that it was more like someone had turned down the brightness on the world. My legs will give way when I'm still conscious but I pass out before I actually hit the ground, so it goes from wobbly and dim vision to on the floor.

Hope that's useful!
