Strangulation is the act of choking someone until they pass out. It is incredibly dangerous and can lead to brain damage. It should only be done with someone you trust as it can easily cause serious harm. Always start small and increase the intensity slowly until it is comfortable for both parties. Remember to keep communication open and to take breaks often. Never choke someone who has not given full consent or who has been drinking alcohol or taking drugs. Safety is always most important!
