a VERY dangerous game

in the D/s - bdsm communities it's called 'breath control', in any community it IS dangerous - no children should even KNOW about this much less participate in it. what i don't understand is why are people calling it 'a game'? BAD BAD BAD choice of words there. ask michael hutchence of inxs. oh that's right you can't, BECAUSE HE IS DEAD..........

parents TALK TO YOUR BABIES.........

'Choking Game' Could Be To Blame For 12-Year-Old's Death
Parents Should Look For Unexplained Marks On Neck

STAMFORD, Conn. -- A 7th grade boy at Scofield Magnet Middle School died over the weekend, and a letter to parents said the 12-year-old may have died while playing a dangerous choking game.
"I've never heard of it," said Laurie Tobin, a Stamford parent. "I've never heard of it around here. None of my kids have ever played it."
Experts said, however, that the game is popular with children from 9 to 15 years old. Kids stop the flow of oxygen to their brain, then get a rush when the blood flow resumes. Julie Rosenbluth is a certified health education specialist who has written a number of articles on the choking game, said children don't understand the risks of the game........

my sister said she talked to her son about this. he said 'mom EVERYONE knows about this'. i knew it was happening. there have been articles about it (kids doing it i mean) from time to time. i had NO idea just how prevelant it is though. yes, it is frightening
