BERLIN — You have been heard that masturbation is good for health and it is widely practiced by both men and women. But a study has disclosed that around 100 people died each year in Germany while pleasuring themselves in bizarre ways.
Oxygen deprivation is the most common cause of death in people who are searching for the ‘ultimate orgasm’, according to forensic examiner, Dr Harald Voss.
One man — wearing pantyhose, a raincoat and a diving suit as well as a plastic bag over his head — died in Hamburg after sitting next to a heater and trying to melt slices of cheese on his body, the study showed.
Likewise, another man in Halle was found dead with Christmas tree lights clamped to his nipples having apparently tried to stimulate himself by electrocution.
Between 80 and 100 people across the country accidentally die every year due to risky masturbation practices, the study has found.
The study further revealed that for every one million German citizens there are ‘one or two’ cases of deaths a year in which a prop or device was used to boost stimulation during sexual activity, reported DailyMail.
Dr Voss claims the number of masturbation-related deaths is underreported because, in some cases, family members of the deceased will remove evidence in order to avoid embarrassment.
“The number of unreported cases is unusually high,” reported The Local.
“Being unconscious is faster than people think…If, for example, both carotid arteries are squeezed, it takes a maximum of 30 seconds.”
He said most of the victims are usually men because women were “more cautious and don’t incorporate so many intricacies”.
German authorities recorded 40 accidental auto-erotic deaths between 1983 and 2003 in Hamburg alone.
