The Loved Mistake
Sep 4, 2018
I know I made a partial suspension thread mentioning this - but I wanted to enquire about this specific thing and the issue with it.

I can't seem to pass out?

I try to close up my throat arteries to pass out but couldn't get it to work right. I get all tingly and light headed, but I never pass out? I apply a bit of pressure on the right spot but my body only goes tingly and dizzy for a little bit then fades off slowly (even though I don't relieve the pressure). My friend tried it and passed out within seconds.

Am I still somehow doing it wrong? Or am I just somehow immune to this?
