Here are ten bizarre cases of people dying while having sex:
10. Kirsten Taylor
A Pennsylvania woman, Kirsten Taylor, 29, was found unconscious on January 23, 2008 in her mobile home. She was taken to York Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Police had already charged Taylor’s husband, Toby, 37, with involuntary manslaughter and reckless endangerment. What was the cause of death? The couple regularly used electricity as part of their sex play, but it all went horribly wrong when Toby accidentally administered a lethal shock to his wife with the power cord from her hairdryer—which they liked to use to add spark to their relationship.
9. Oliver Dietmann
A German salesman, Oliver Dietmann, 46, killed his lover, Rica Varna with a cucumber….by accident of course. On July 19, 2014, Oliver used the vegetable to pleasure his girlfriend. After it had served its intended purpose, he said he put it in her mouth. He then noticed smoke coming from the kitchen and realized that he forgot a roast in the oven. When he returned to the bedroom, he found Rica unconscious. Medical experts later said that the cucumber got wedged in her throat, cut off her air supply and plunged her into a coma. Why didn’t she just remove it?
8. David Carradine
In 2009, actor David Carradine was found dead in the closet of a Bangkok hotel room with a cord wrapped around his neck and genitals, leading authorities to believe that the death occured as a result of “dangerous” sex play. It is believed he was engaging in autoerotic asphyxiation, the practice of cutting off one’s air supply to heighten sexual pleasure. Two of Carradine’s ex-wives, Gail Jensen, and Marina Anderson, later confirmed that Carradine’s sexual interests included the practice of self-bondage. OOPS…
7. Billy Snedden
Australian Liberal Party leader Sir Billy Snedden was found dead in a room at the Rushcutters Bay Travelodge in Sydney, Australia on June 27, 1987. Police said he was wearing a condom and had died of an apparent heart attack. His companion fled the scene to avoid being caught…having an affair. The politician’s son, Drew Mackie Forsyth Snedden, said the woman was an old girlfriend of his, who had later become involved with his father. On the night he died, Snedden had just been welcomed back into the Liberal fold, and he was at his political best. It was an adrenalin-filled evening.
6. Nelson Rockefeller
In 1979, Nelson Rockefeller—New York’s four-term governor, former vice-president of the United States, and the most prominent scion of America’s most famous, wealthy family—died to a heart attack at the age of 70, while having an affair with his assistant, Megan Marshack. Eager for closure, the family allowed no autopsy and had the corpse cremated, hastily absolving everyone involved of any negligence.
5. and 4
Clergy are no strangers to sex scandals, and at least two popes are believed to have died while in the act.
Pope Leo VII was the pope from 936 to 939 AD. While the circumstances of his death are unrecorded, it is believed that he died of a heart attack while having sex with his girlfriend. After his death in 939, Leo was interred at St. Peter’s Basilica.
Pope Paul II was the pontiff from 1464 to 1471. He died suddenly of a heart attack on July 26 of that year. Reports surrounding his death allege that he died while being sodomized by a page boy.
3. Felix Faure
Félix Faure, President of France from 1895 to 1899, died while receiving fellatio from his mistress, Marguerite Steinheil. The cause of death was listed as a cerebral hemorrhage. Eyewitnesses stated he was in a state of partial undress when he died and Steinheil had lockjaw, necessitating the surgical removal of Faure’s penis from her mouth. This version is disputed by some historians.
2. Lord Palmerston
Lord Palmerston, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, died in 1865 following a brief illness; sources disagree about the immediate circumstances of his death. It is rumored that sex on a billiard table with a maid precipitated his demise, but this account is disputed, with other sources stating that he died of pneumonia.
1. 91 year old Portuguese woman
Recently, a 91-year-old Portuguese woman was discovered lying dead in her bed with a picture of her husband resting on her chest. Lying beside her was a vibrating sex toy, and semen from her 49-year-old neighbor was discovered. She died in the middle of sex games.
