I was born in September 1971. I’ve been married since October 1994. My wife and I are child-free by choice – we don’t want that kind of expense or responsibility. I make my living as a Customer Service Rep for a credit card bank. My wife is permanently disabled.
I’m a fantasy death fetishist. That means I get off on watching consenting adults role-play fantasy death scenes. Whether in mainstream movies, TV shows, or independent fetish videos, it doesn’t matter. If it’s well-produced, I’m interested.
My fetish dates back to my youth. Thanks to relatively liberal parents and a neighborhood friend’s Mom, I got to see a lot of Horror movies by the time I was 13, starting with The Exorcist at age 10. By age 15, I was getting bored with their formulaic storylines, particularly Slasher flicks. They just weren’t scary anymore, so I started watching them just to see how many different ways filmmakers could kill off a bunch of stupid coeds. In other words, like most Horror fans today, I started rooting for the villains. Over time, I developed a strong preference for asphyxiation. Having often held my own breath to the point of nearly passing out to cure hiccups, I can’t imagine a scarier way to die, so I love watching other people pretend to be asphyxiated to death.
In 1994, I joined the World Wide Web shortly after it went public. Three years later, I discovered a website called Necrobabes and learned that I’m not the only one who gets off on watching people play dead. I’ve been a highly active member of the community ever since and collected over 40 GB of videos, photos, and artwork. Cinemasphyxia.com is my way of giving back to the community.
My workstation is a home-built 3.5 GHz Core i7-4770K running Windows 10 Pro 64-bit with 32 GB of RAM and a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card.
I use MovAVI to record scenes from streaming video. Then, I load the recording into Corel Video Studio Ultimate to remove any irrelevant scenes and splice the remaining footage together using a “Cross Fade” effect to create a smooth transition between cuts. I export the edited footage to a 1920 x 1080 HD MP4. Next, because Video Studio creates enormous MP4s, I load the file into Handbrake and re-encode it to minimize file size. After re-encoding, I grab a screenshot from the finished video. Finally, I upload the MP4 and create a WordPress page for the scene.
