Strangulation is what you do when ya really wanna throttle the crap outta someone. The act itself is usually conducted with the intent of killing the target in question, but may also be used as a form of torture. Some freaks however, also employ it as a sexual practice, known as auto-erotic asphyxiation.

Strangulation is usually employed using a person's bare hands, which they wrap around someone's throat, squeezing tighter and tighter until their victim turns blue in the face and ultimately keels over. A successful strangulation may also be achieved through the use of an accessory, such as a length of rope, a piece of wire, a garrote, etc.
