There are a lot of scissors fans on this forum so I might be a minority regarding this particular topic.
The allure of the F/M Bare Handed Choking (hand choke, straight choke, front choke) for me is the simple fact that nothing else has the potential of projecting absolute domination than a simple fingers around throat choke. Not a rear naked choke, not head/neck scissors.
The legs are traditionally a more powerful part of the human anatomy so slapping on a head/neck scissors while the 'victim' screams in pain might not be that difficult. Yes, brute strength and technique is involved but it can be understood to be not that difficult to make the recipient beg for mercy.
Bare Handed Choke on the other hand, makes the domination seem even more unique. It requires tremendous strength for one and a lot of technique regarding placing of the hands on the throat, finger positioning and so on. I practiced it a lot on my then boyfriend and it was exhilarating for me. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than seeing a woman choke out a man with just her hands.
Even though this is an anime, notice how the woman crushes the man's throat with just one hand.
