Questions are still coming up in David Carradine’s tragic death. Questions like: “What the fuck was he doing?” Reports from CNN say that “a yellow nylon rope was tied around the actor’s neck and a black rope was around his genitals.” This has led police to believe David died from “accidental suffocation.” Implying that it was due to auto-erotic asphyxiation.
Meanwhile, Chuck Binder, David’s manager, suspects foul play as he was told that Carradine’s hands were “immobilized” by the rope. Note that he doesn’t specifically say bound.
Although, lending more credence to the suffocating while masturbating claim are old reports surfacing via The Smoking Gun which reveal David’s most recent ex accused him of “deviant sexual behavior which was potentially deadly” and claimed he “engaged in an “incestuous relationship with a very close family member.”
Furthermore, I’m pretty sure David was into all sorts of crazy sexual fetishes. One time he was talking about coming across a woman who could orgasm just by giving head. Not sure how that came up in conversation, but there you go. David died the way he lived: Masturbating and choking himself out with a rope in a closet. I doubt he would have wanted it any other way.
