Erotic Hypnosis: A Mesmerizing Path to Bliss, or Creepy Brainwashing?

Just when you think you’ve seen all there is to see within the world of sexual pleasures, something comes along that blows your mind—while trying to control it. 

Erotic hypnosis is a swiftly growing phenomenon in which mind control is used to both stimulate and subjugate. Traditional hypnosis has been used for decades to help people with everything from quitting smoking to dealing with PTSD, but this version is more about going under to get off. 

Celebrants of erotic hypnosis have touted the purported benefits of the practice, stating that it can improve sexual well-being, allow for an inhibition-free erotic encounter, and even facilitate a hands-free orgasm through the power of suggestion. Intrigued and perhaps a little bit concerned about the potential of this practice, was compelled to  delve a little deeper.

So, pay close attention to what we say, and focus only on the sound of our voice…

A form of intense suggestion and mental manipulation, erotic hypnosis aims to bring about new and hitherto unexplored realms of intense sexual experiences. From the hands-free orgasms described by erotic author Laurie Jade Woodruff in her recent writings on her masturbatory experimentation to new developments within the sub/Domme dynamic, this sensation lies somewhere within the murky waters between Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response (which we recently covered in-depth with HUSTLER Honey Romi Rain) and traditional roles seen in BDSM where one’s control over another comes into play. 

Two of the biggest community hubs for this practice, perhaps unsurprisingly, can be found on Reddit, the Wild West of NSFW content. The anonymous, worldwide forum for the bizarre and the brilliant, Reddit is proof that there is not only a kink for everything, but there’s also a substantial group of like-minded people ready to discuss, argue and post about it in immense detail. The practice’s primary sub-Reddit, r/EroticHypnosis, currently boasts around 35,000 members, while r/HypnoGoneWild takes the kink to even further extremes. Redditors in this sub-Reddit refer to themselves as “Hypnosluts” and share their personal experiences, deepest desires, links to related clips and hypnosis GIFs. These range from almost innocent play to more extreme and occasionally worrying threads.
