Maybe it was a sex game gone wrong, maybe something more.

A 22-year-old British woman has been found dead in the bathroom of a hotel in southern Switzerland, police say.

Her 29-year-old German boyfriend has been taken into custody and reportedly told police that the death was the result of a "sex game" that went wrong. The victim has not been officially named. Local media say a post-mortem examination has shown she died of suffocation. The UK Foreign Office said it was offering assistance to the family.

Swiss media said the woman had been staying at the Hotel La Palma au Lac in Muralto, in the district of Locarno, with her boyfriend, who lives in Zurich. She was found dead on Tuesday morning. Police say they are still investigating the circumstances of the death. Reports say officials are looking into the possibility of an intentional killing.

Michigan man sues parents for tossing out his porn.

https://abcnews.go.com/US/michigan-man-sues-parents-86000-tossing-porn-collection/story?id=62385198

------------------------------------------------
The rift between the family started back in October 2016 when the man moved back into his parents' Grand Haven, Michigan, home after a divorce. Among his possessions was a smut collection, he said in court documents, is worth $29,000, ABC affiliate ABC13 reported.

Less than a year later, the man moved out to Indiana. When his parents allegedly delivered his property to his new home, the son noticed that his massive collection was missing.

Should have digitised it all.

I expect his parent's main concern wasn't that he had a bit of porn so much but that he himself valued it at $29,000 .. so in otherwords, an ENORMOUS stash .. and how did he arrive at that specific monetary figure? .. I doubt very much that he kept receipts and even if he did, surely porn is pretty much free these days unless he had some mint condition first edition PLAYBOY magazines or something similar?

how big is $30k of porn? assuming it's not some very expensive er..... kit!
Let's say your average jaz mag, taking into account inflation, would average out at possibly about three quid each (at retail value) if we're only talking perhaps within the last thirty years? .. one thousand bongo books would equal 30k .. not including other media or possible sex toys would be my estimation.

If his collection perhaps instead consisted of 1920's 8mm film canisters of stag films, he might have some grounds to be angry I suppose if he was about to sell them to some sort of historical 'erotica' collector. I imagine he just had a load of old grubby VHS tapes instead though.

I've just realised I haven't done a dollars to pounds conversion. I'm thinking about this way too much.

The 30k figure could stack up quite easily with much less than 1000 mags. I bet they weren't "well-thumbed", because there's so much filth available everywhere nowadays.
I posted this on another thread recently:
These things are collectibles nowadays, I shit you not. I just sold, on Ebay, a pile of gentlemen's reading material, from the early 90s, and some of them were going for up to £20 each. No hardcore, no pink bits, no spooge (either in the pictures, or on the pages. Brand new, given to me, chucked in a box unread and forgotten), just common hedge porn, Razzle, Club, Mayfair etc. I noticed that a couple of chaps with Chinese names bought lots of them, like £100+ at a time, I don't quite understand what's going on there, unless there's demand for British Reader's Wives pics in the Orient.
(Oh, Ebay frown upon such listings, they are totally verboten, and will be removed instantly - that's why there are thousands of mags on sale there constantly, duh)

My TV told me last night it no longer supports GoPro. I didn't know what that was, so ignored the message. Now after seeing this thread I'm relieved it doesn't have it anymore.
Surely this video right here below is proof that Huey Lewis is indeed a time traveller who had a cockcam in the 80's GNC

There are reports of links between sexual inequality (sexual Gini index) and incel and jihadi violence. Very speculative of course:
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/30/opinion/sex-shame-incels-jihadists-minassian.html

And economists have used this measure in practice:
https://quillette.com/2019/03/12/attraction-inequality-and-the-dating-economy/
The economist Robin Hanson has written some fascinating articles that use the cold and inhuman logic economists are famous for to compare inequality of income to inequality of access to sex. If we follow a few steps of his reasoning, we can imagine the world of dating as something like an economy, in which people possess different amounts of attractiveness (the dating economy’s version of dollars) and those with more attractiveness can access more and better romantic experiences (the dating economy’s version of consumer goods). If we think of dating in this way, we can use the analytical tools of economics to reason about romance in the same way we reason about economies.

And there is a lot of frustration about sexual inequality on incel websites. With depressing graphics. I can see why Jordan Peterson has such a large following:
https://incels.wiki/w/Hypergamy

I have no fixed opinion on this, but the fact that the discussion exists at all is new and fascinating. There is a lot of bickering around this subject,
