Docs: Carradine's 'Potentially Deadly' Sex Habits

6/5/2009 6:31 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Another major development in the David Carradine death mystery -- this one found in the pages of his 2003 divorce papers, in which his ex wife accused him of a "potentially deadly" sexual appetite.

In divorce papers obtained by the Smoking Gun, David's ex-wife Marina accused him of participating in "deviant sexual behavior which was potentially deadly." The papers do not say specifically what that behavior entailed.

Police say David's body was found in his Bangkok hotel room Thursday morning with a rope around his neck and genitals. It was at first reported as a suicide, but police have since changed their tune by saying he could have died from an "accidental suffocation."

David's manager believes foul play is involved because he's been told David was found with his hands tied behind his back.

scott is yummy.    

There once was a guy who i was interested in, until he told me all these secret fantasies he had, like knife play, and he fantasized about hanging from hooks that were pierced into the skin on his shoulder blades...i gotta tell you i don't normally consider myself very conservative in bed, but this sh*T threw me off badly, it was a huge turn off. needless to say he scared me off and i quit talking to him. I don't understand how anyone can find this sh#t pleasurable?! can someone please explain?! I doubt he was feeling any pleasure at all when he died...what an awful way to die...and i just don't get this "lifestyle:"

All of this is soooo sad. Please let's remember DC as a great actor and not the manner in which he died.

Post #64, I have the same feelings as you. There should be no link between pain and sex. People like that guy who you met don't like themselves, and they probably don't like anyone else either. You were wise to stay away.

I don't understand this lifestyle at all. To me it is just sick, but then, I feel the same way about most rap music. What I'm trying to say is, to each his own. If this was pleasurable to him, so be it. The man was a great man and actor, and should be remembered as such. Give his family some respect. The shock of a sudden death is bad enough without the speculation and media circus.

The man the smiley face serial killers decided to set free    

I hate when people say “what a bad way to go out” I mean, it’s definitely jazzier than dying from respiratory failure after 6 weeks on an oxygen machine. Still, it’s sad, seemed a good guy. But like I told’em "Leave one hand free when getting tied up by tai hookers."

I believe he commited suicide. Noone wants to believe that, given that all his co-workers and friends said he was in great spirits. I can relate though. I had a really fun night out tonight but thought about suicide the whole way home. Suicide is not a bad thing...if you truly believe you are done with this world, then you are done. Life is precious, yes, but at the same time the material world is not for eveyone. His time was up, and he knew it. Even if it was a deviant sexual act, I think he knew what he was doing. And I really am not sure, but the fact that Heath Ledger is now a legend based on what happened and the timing,..I think David was thinking maybe this movie Stretch could make him legendary...more so than he already is. Maybe he was in great spirits knowing he would soon leave this world behind and move on. It's ok, accept the fact hat this life is not for everyone and that taking your own life is ok if you are ready. I certainly don't want to rot as a vegetable. If in fact a prostitute of some kind was involved, they'd have her/his ass on camera somewhere in the hotel. Maybe he was trying to get himself off and failed, David, I'm with you bro, and thank you for your inspiration!

Well, it has now become more likely this was linked to asphyxiation and sexual pleasure. Maybe auto-erotic, but possibly not all-together 'auto'.

So, let's just suppose this is true.

Why do so many here during multiple reports call this a *shameful* way to die? It's sad, preventable, and let's hope it scares others away from trying this, but "shameful"? Not quite.

Everyone here masturbates occasionally, or should. If you don't, you're a lier or a prude. I would masturbate every once in awhile even if I were sleeping with Megan Fox or Angelina Jolie.

It's not shameful, it's just too bad he was reckless about it, and it cost him his life. If the guy loved to paint houses, and accidentally fell from a tall ladder while doing so, would it be *shameful*? Momentarily stupid, maybe, if he wasn't careful. But, nothing an about accident, even stupid accident + masturbation should be shameful.

Every single time a celebrity ran into a poll or hydrant IS shameful in that the person put other people at risk. Street racing is shameful. Domestic violence is shameful. This isn't.


I've never done this, and don't even intend to, but those who don't understand -- apparently there is a neuro-chemical connection between oxygen deprivation and heightened orgasm. My orgasms are just fine, so I'm not tempted to find out first hand, but it's not about pain. It's about intensifying the experience.


I'm really missing this guy. He was a central figure in my young memories of pop culture. He was amazing in the Kill Bill volumes. A really talented guy. And, as far as I can tell, a kind, gentle, compassionate soul.

Cut the guy some damn slack already.

I'm still in shock over David Carradine's passing. His portrayal of Kwai Chang Caine was my first exposure to martial arts as a kid and was an early inspiration for me to get involved. I'm sad that I never got a chance to meet him although he and my Sensei were good friends.

Was anyone else influenced or inspired by him when it came to their Martial Arts studies?
