When BDSM Goes Way Wrong
S&M negligence lead to a Tennessee man's death.

Bondage Gone WrongA Tennessee woman is facing charges of reckless homicide after her husband asphyxiated after 20 hours of bondage. The man was gagged, taped, and had his arms and legs restricted. There were breathing holes cut for nostrils. But when Rebecca Bargy returned to her trailer after almost a full day, she found that husband James Bargy had expired. We know nothing more about this case than what ABCNews has reported but we can’t help but speculate as to what happened.

First of all this scenario smacks of being the dude's idea. In our experience, the person getting bound and abandoned is the one that planned the ordeal and gets off on it, we could be wrong. Sexpert, Dan Savage is likely to weigh in on this and his advice is going to be something along the lines of: use some common sense, retards. Have a way of escaping or calling for help if you’re being left alone, a friggin’ baby monitor or something. Sure, people survive 500-foot falls into mine shafts, but we’re fragile, bro. Sure safe words are for squares, but shouldn’t the S&M professor’s hospitalization be a warning to everyone? And he was working with a professional dominatrix.

People are going to be like, "OMFG. How did this happen in Tennessee?" It's not an exact science, but there is a correlation between being able buy crystal meth and the amount of weird sexual stuff going down (some pun intended). So, if you're going to torture your lover or some consenting adult you met at the line-dancing bar, agree to some ground rules and learn the S&M basics. Even if you claim BDSM as part of your 'religion,' do your best not to kill anyone. Aight, Eli Roth?
