I was chatting with someone last night when the topic of getting choked in the ropes came up (you know, like it does). I know there are wrestling fans who are far more into the fantasy of choking, but I certainly get it. The element of control is so seductive when one hunk is literally rationing the air supply of his opponent. “You’ll breathe when I say you’ll breathe” is such an intimate, inside-out type of corporal domination. In any case the phrase, “choked in the ropes and riding him like a pony” came up, which sent me tracking down that particular moment in homoerotic wrestling archives. So much intimacy. Such control. So much humiliation. Sweet.
