BDSM in the News

19 02 2008

I ran across a couple of stories while surfing, and I thought I would share.  The first is the tale of a man who died while in bondage.

Photos of the scene at an apartment in Battersea, South West London, shows a bedroom converted into a sadomasochistic dungeon, unnamed sources told The Sun newspaper.

The pictures, which will be presented to an inquest into Mr Greening’s death later this year, depict a leather harness, knee-high boots and a scaffolding structure containing meat-hooks and chains.

Paramedics reportedly found the body of the 44-year-old DJ, who was openly gay, hanging upside down in a bondage harness. The room also contained roles of black industrial tape, boxing gloves and nipple clamps, the sources were quoted as saying.

Police are investigating the circumstances of the presenter’s death, thought to be from a heart attack, after tests showed he may have taken various drugs, including cocaine and ecstasy.

I think the morale is, don’t do drugs and play, and don’t play alone, or with people who will abandon you when you are in distress.  It is sad when this happens to one of us in the community.

 

On a different and lighter note, here is a story sparked from an earlier story, about a man who enjoys BDSM as a change of pace in sex. It seems pretty fair to us Lifestylers, although it does focus on a man who pays to play and not someone in a committed relationship.

e, a high-powered Upper West Side tech consultant likes nothing better than to light some candles, turn down the lights – and get whipped.

“It’s all about giving up everything, a total power exchange where you don’t have to worry about anything,” said the 36-year-old married dad of two.

“It’s a release of any obligations I’ve got.”
