Nude Man Found Dead At Spa: Suicide Or Sex Game Gone Wrong?

This ended badly no matter what the intent. 

A man in Singapore was found dead and naked in a Singapore spa in what may have been an auto-erotic asphyxiation accident. 

According to Gay Star News:

It is believed Yeo Hung Song, 48, was practicing auto-erotic asphyxiation, which involves starving the brain of oxygen to increase sexual arousal.

Imran Abdul Amid, the State Coroner, has said suicide could also have been a possibility, the Straits Times reports.

Song arrived at Club One Seven Spa & Gym at around 2pm, a men only establishment on 19 November last year.

He entered Room 5, which featured a saddle bench with wooden legs and a two meter tall frame with metal chains dangling from each corner.

More than seven hours later at 9.30pm, a cleaner knocked on the door of the locked cubicle and got no response.

Song was found naked, on bended knees, with a chain around his neck.

On the floor was a towel, which was later found to contain his semen.


According to investigators Song had been battling depression and had told a friend that he was considering suicide. 

His depression had been attributed to him not being married. (Weirdly this attribution was from the State Coroner, so we're wondering if they're projecting?) Song was a regular visitor to the spa.

Overdoses and deaths happen more often than you'd think in bathhouses.  There is a large, brand name American one in Vancouver that has had 31 overdoses in the past few years alone but there is a code of silence not only from the owners of this bathhouse but within the community as people are afraid it will close down.  Not that many people are going there anyway now.

and this is news why?

newsworthy for homophobes I suppose who might like to use this as a generic statement to demean an identity
