Sussex man found dead 'in sex swing’

The 53-year-old man's body was reportedly discovered by his son

A man has reportedly been found dead in a “sex swing”.

The 53-year-old man's body was discovered at a house in Hove, Sussex.

Police found the body in a harness surrounded by a number of gas cylinders containing unknown substances, according to the Eastbourne Herald.

The man’s body was reportedly discovered by his son and neighbours in the surrounding area were briefly evacuated as a precaution.

South East Coast Ambulance Service’s hazardous area response team attended the scene, but it was soon determined there was no threat to public safety, according to the Eastbourne Herald.

A spokesman for the Sussex Police told Metro: “Police are not treating the death as suspicious and the coroner has been informed.”

A sex swing is described as a type of harness or sling designed for people to have sex while one person is suspended.
