46. No. You are failing to understand something key about auto-erotic asphyxiation.
The intent of auto-erotic asphyxiation is not death. The intent is very strong sexual satisfaction. That is what makes it completely different. David Carradine did not want to go out with a "bigger bang". His death was accidental. When performing auto-erotic asphyxiation the participant asphyxiates themselves until they achieve orgasm, which is supposedly much more intense this way, and then they stop short of death. It is a dangerous form of erotic behavior that is performed all over the world. Usually it is performed with a partner to maintain some amount of safety. Unfortunately there are people who think they can safely perform this act alone and there have been many deaths because of it. But the bottom line is that Carradine's death was accidental. It was not suicide nor was it murder. He was performing an act he had done many times before and he made a mistake. That is why these cases are not comparable in any way whatsoever. I would say that the "shame" in Carradine's case would be more of an "embarrassment" because he died performing a careless sex act accidentally.

So auto-erotic asphyxiation and "asphyxiation without the erotic aspect" are simply not the same in any way, shape, or form. Intent is everything.
