Robin Williams' Left Wrist Was Lacerated Just As Was David Carradine's Left Wrist, Who Died By Means Of Autoerotic Asphyxiation (AEA)
Death By Autoerotic Asphyxiation
Further evidence points to death death by means of Autoerotic Asphyxiation: Robin Williams' left wrist was lacerated just as was David Carradine's left wrist, who died by means of Autoerotic Asphyxiation (AEA)
First from the statement of the Marin County Sheriff’s Office Coroner Division on the death of Robin Williams:
Mr. Williams was cool to the touch with rigor mortis present in all of his extremities and livor mortis positioned appropriately for the position he was located in. The inside of Mr. Williams’ left wrist had several acute superficial transverse cuts. A pocket knife with a closed blade was located in close proximity to Mr. Williams. The pocket knife was examined and dry red material was located on the blade which appeared consistent to dried blood. It is unknown at this time if the dried red material is in fact blood or if it is Mr. Williams’ blood, but scientific testing will be conducted to evaluate its investigative value.

Bill Killed / Violet Blue on the death of David Carradine who died by means of Autoerotic Asphyxiation (AEA):
Since then it's been a circus of morbidity; photos of Carradine's body have been leaked to the Internet, an autopsy photo and crime scene pics are making the rounds. I've seen them: he got a Y-incision for the autopsy, the left wrist is lacerated but not the right -- which I find interesting considering he was right handed -- though the Thai front-page tabloid newspaper image showed both hands tied above his head to the coat hanger bar. The Smoking Gun has the publicly available records Carradine's 2003 divorce papers where his ex-wife talked about Carradine's "potentially deadly" "deviant sexual behaviors" and Carradine's family is avoiding comment and seeking FBI help with the investigation.

This answers the question why did Williams cut his left wrist. Further evidence that Williams did not commit suicide but died while masturbating.
No one wants to talk about erotic asphyxiation, auto (self-induced) or otherwise. It's generally thought of as the kind of sex you have if you want to die. Or get damn close to it. But people do it: estimates in the US put the death rate for erotic asphyxia at upwards of 1000 people a year. According to the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, around 250 of its policyholders die from sexual asphyxia each year. SFGate
