I think everyone assumed that the thread starter was referring to pain. However, a lot of submissions are classified as pressure point attacks. A properly applied rear naked choke will put pressure against the carotid artery and the person will go to sleep. You'll go out faster if it's properly applied to put pressure against this artery than if it's simply a choke.
