Germans are coming and going, at the same time, and a record rate.
An excerpt from The Local:
The search for the ultimate orgasm through depriving oneself of oxygen is the most common reason for autoerotic deaths, according to forensic examiner Harald Voß.
Voß estimates there are one or two cases of accidental deaths annually that occur during sexual activity in which a device or prop was used to enhance one’s stimulation for every one million inhabitants in Germany. Around 80-100 people thus die annually in an autoerotic way.
But the number of unreported cases is “extremely high,” added Voß, who has dealt with only five cases in the last 30 years. Cases are also often unknown, he says, for instance because relatives of the deceased are ashamed.
