Silent Victims, submitted by GC. There are support groups for the loved ones of alcoholics, the insane, murder victims, and FINALLY we have a support group for the family of those who have died in autoerotic asphyxiation mishaps!

The author is often asked about support groups for grieving family members. Although we are not aware of any physical locations for support groups for AeA victim-families there are at least two "Internet-based support groups" that have provided an excellent forum for many grieving family members and friends of AeA victims. The members of these groups find a very special and unique comfort in corresponding with others who have suffered a similar loss.

My problem isn't with the people or even really the site, it's the fact that a site like this is necessary. I can't believe that there are that many fucking people who choke themselves when they beat off that there is a real need for a support group. On the site it even mentions that there are TWO pages on the Interweb devoted to providing support for the surviving families of beat off choking fatalities. For fuck's sake.

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

  • Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
