Did Auto-Erotic Asphyxiation Lead to BBC Host Kristian Digby’s Death?

Kristian Digby, a host of a couple BBC shows, was found dead in his home in what investigators suspect may have been a sex game gone bad. He was 32.

His body appears to have been found by his ex-boyfriend, a police officer. The circumstances of his death remain “unexplained”; suicide is not said to be a factor. But true to the gay stereotype, Digby’s death will forever be attached to sexual deviance.

A belt and a bag were removed from the scene for examination, which of course suggests auto-erotic asphyxiation, where one’s oxygen supply is cut off for a better orgasm. It’s a stupid thing to do.
