BBC presenter Kristian Digby was found dead at the age of 32 in his East London apartment on Monday.

The cause of death is said to be the result of auto-erotic asphyxiation, the act of cutting off oxygen to the brain for sexual arousal.

Authorities are classifying his death as "unexplained" as detectives do not think it was suicide.

"The man was pronounced dead at the scene, family have been informed," said police. "Officers are investigating."

Many have come together to grieve his death.

"I am devastated by the loss. He was a lovely guy and a very talented presenter," said Kristian's agent, Jo Wander.

Digby started hosting To Buy Or Not To Buy in 2003 and moved on to present Holiday, Living In The Sun and That Gay Show.

"Kristian was a much-loved and talented presenter," said the BBC. "He brought a real sense of energy and warmth to all the shows. Our thoughts are with his family."

So sad.

Pretty sad because he was a nice guy, I remember watching him on TV.

The funny thing is these things happen all the time I mean you wouldn't think that something as dangerous as jacking off and hanging yourself at the same time was that common...but alas... apparently it is.

I question the sincerity of the "R.I.P." bit. I just don't know how much you can want someone to rest in peace when you go ahead and print that they chocked themselves to death while jacking off....

yeah it is pretty embarrassing to be found in that state. I'm also surprised at how often these things occur. Is it really necessary to choke yourself in order to get a better orgasm? Judging from his looks, he shouldn't have a problem getting a girlfriend or something. Geez.

Actually I had never heard of this kind of sexual arousing ...
I started reading something about it ...but what I don't understand is why would someone limit brain oxygen to get aroused?

Yeah from what I know too this thing is very common, unlucky how people get found that way, but that is what happens when they go too far.

You do realise that he'd then probably get her to choke him? Or use another method of cutting off oxygen to the brain?

It's not only a typical method of BDSM, but it also, and I quote, "can increase feelings of giddiness, lightheadness, and pleasure, all of which will heighten masturbatory sensations."

yeah that's what I mean. I don't understand how potentially killing yourself for an "increased feeling of whatever" is worth it. I guess if he's just into that, there's nothing you can do. I figure if he had a girlfriend, he wouldn't need to go through the trouble of doing all that for an extreme jerkoff, that just having sex would be enough. :shifteyes:
