A method of execution or suicide performed by tying a noose made of rope or similar material around the victim's neck. When the victim hangs from the noose, their body weight causes it to tighten, cutting off airflow through the trachea and ultimately causing death by asphyxiation. Hanging may also be performed non-lethally as a form of breath play.
