Carradine's Ex -- He Spent Days Planning Bondage

6/8/2009 11:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

David CarradineAnother woman from David Carradine's past is talking about the actor's penchant for auto-erotica -- claiming he would spend days planning to construct elaborate sexual devices.

Carradine's third ex-wife, Gail Jensen, dropped more personal bombshells in an interview with Patricia Towle this weekend, saying "David was pretty strange. He would like to get tied up. He would tie himself up and I would walk in and see him and say 'Oh my God, David, you got to be kidding me -- and I would (turn around and) walk out. I would leave him to his own devices."

Jensen added, "He liked to be tied up. And he could tie himself up ... He spent days planning a different feature. He would go to a hardware store and buy the stuff."

We spoke with Jensen, who told us although David liked tying himself up "it was never sexual." She says he liked bondage but never choked himself. Then again, they divorced in 1997.

Last week, TheSmokingGun.com published legal documents from Carradine's 4th wife, detailing David's "potentially deadly" sex habits.

Carradine died in a Bangkok hotel room early Thursday morning. Officials will conduct a second autopsy sometime in the next few days.

He pleasured himself by manipulating the rope that was overhead and tied to his genitals.

You can't whack off with BOTH hands tied above your head. And you can't whack off with a rope tied around it either.

I've learned more about this auto erotic crap this week than I will ever need to know in my life. No wonder so many women go lesbian. Yuck.

I agree with you Frank. P-head's chosen name is very appropriate. Even though I would guess that David Carradine had some pretty strange habits, no one knows for sure. The amount of venom spewed on this site is also pretty ugly.

The Thai investigation has not been going on that long and it could take a turn in a very different direction very quickly. Sometimes things are not quite what they look like. Everyone is being really quick to judge this situation. Usually even B list celebrities have PA's that know their secrets and cover them in potentially embarrassing situations. I find it hard to believe that a guy of his stature could go missing for as long as he did before is body was discovered and that the embarrassing details were not "covered up" to hide embarrassment to the family. So what if he was a kinky old guy, to each their own, he was doing his business in privacy. I think there is a big piece of this story missing, and we may never know.

I am just really sad that he is no longer with us to make amazingly entertaining and cheesy B grade movies. He as been one of my favorite actors for 30 years, and thats what matters. He owes us nothing else, let him RIP.

On the topic of David Carridane's shady death:

I think the autopsy in the USA will show
those ligature marks were made after death
or some other evidence that will confirm foul play.
Suicide and accidental (sex) deaths like this are frequent cover-ups in suspicious deaths - some of the top stupidest things I hear on say, NBC

The guy had everything to live for. And at 72, only acted it up for the movies and music. Anyone who knew him will tell 'ya.
Try not to believe everything you read. There is this thing called bias.

He had got himself clean and into fitness years ago and was going to shoot a film in tailand in two weeks.
I heard from my buddy who works at MTV. He knows one of his groupies. He was found with his hands tied swinging in the closet of his

hotel with an apple in his mouth.

Tai mafia - their version of a mexican necktie
Common in tailand I guess. They are well known for killing porn actresses this way. They probably know who is responsible but are

paid to say suicide or whatever. They don't care either. Those responsible will never come to justice. Just counting their cash.

What a waste of life just for the insurance money on the production.

His talent will be missed.

Kill Bill is a classic.

Sorry to shock you but I think the press is now
slandering the guy. I don't think this rumor is untrue.
I wouldn't be surprised to hear next in details of the autopsy that he died choking on something he ate.

I think the statement by his X-wife is based on jealousy, or she is confused on how to get paid on her insurance on him. Accidental
death would be her best bet. Perhaps she is desperate for support.

The majority of us have no CLUE what all can be involved in auto-erotic asphyxiation. Just because details like his hands being bound and above his head don't make sense to the average person, it doesn't rule out auto-erotic asphyxiation. I can't even begin to imagine all the ways one could accomplish this. But I'm learning more as the days wear on and it's sure sounding like auto-erotica gone wrong.

I was thinking the same thing....

Honestly, I am really sick of the intolerance and judgment here. I am not a fan of the kinky stuff David was apparently into, but fetishes are a reality and people have a wide range of them. This doesn't make a person a criminal. You can't equate auto-erotic asphyxiation fetishes with pedophilia, they are two completely different things. Normally what happens behind closed doors stays there with regard to people's particular fetishes (thankfully), but on the rare occasion it emerges it really shouldn't be a shock. People are pretty complex organisms sexually and if everyone with a fetish proclaimed it, I think people would be surprised by the number of people doing kinky sh!t. The dude got unlucky and hung himself which is a danger of his particular fetish but again, people with fetishes aren't all that rare and it doesn't mean they are engaging in criminal behavior with young people. There's a lot of misunderstandings out there about fetishism and I hope that Carradine's sad passing has a silver lining in that people start to talk about these things more openly and stop stigmatizing and judging.
