What does hypno kink make you think of?
Maybe it's something you have never considered. Maybe it's something you have only encountered in porn. An evil hypnotist making a beautiful woman obey his every command.
Hypnosis as a kink is a growing community. From amateur story writers and file makers to professionals making high production value audio and video to provide content for the ever growing fanbase.
But what is it, this Hypno Kink thing?
At its basics, it is using words to relax a person, make them drop down and eventually into a trance. And one they are in the trance they can be gently nudged to do something or to feel a certain way. While the common portrait of hypnotists is they can make you do anything they want, it is more accurate that they can open you up to do things you have always wanted to do but may have had anxiety, guilt or trepidation about doing. A good hypnotist won't try to make you do something to make you uncomfortable, unless that's what you have asked for.
Sometimes this is done by text, sometimes by voice. You can get files (longer recorded sessions that take you down into trance) or loops (shorter recording that you listen to again and again for it to sink in) or you can get a custom recording that suits your needs.
And that's an important thing. While the hypnotist will no doubt get pleasure from putting you into a trance, especially if it's in a Dom/Sub situation, a large part of the kink is catered towards fulfilling a need.
As an example, we had NoNutNovember recently. People trying to get through the month without coming. And for some people that was a real challenge. In the Hypno community there were lots of files released that would help you. Denial audios that would sink you down into a trance, tell you that you want to deny yourself, you want to make it to the end of the month, that you want to prolong that release. And for those taking the challenge, this was something that helped them.
And the variety of content out there is staggering. Do you want to use hypnosis to make you horny for exercise? Done. Do you want to use hypnosis to release your inner bimbo? Yes, done.
Do you want to use it to strengthen your submissive urges to your Dom/Domme? We can do that.
I think one of the reasons people enjoy this kink is the issues of control. In a world where we are all fighting to keep control at all times while the world throws its worst at us, it's nice to find a safe space to give that control up, to be told “Don't worry, you don't need to think, you don't need to do anything” And if we can do that and get sexual pleasure out of it? Why not indulge?
Like most things, there are always good and bad practises. The best hypnotists will put in fail safes to make sure that if you feel unsafe or suddenly need to do something else, you can come out of trance and feel fine. Some research and questioning will point you in the right direction for what is best for you.
And this is just a glimpse into the world of hypnosis. We haven't even talked about watching videos of other people being hypnotised. Or about what the hypnotist gets out of the exchange.
Or trigger words. Or the pleasure of becoming a mindless drone.
Maybe that's something for the future.
But if you're interested, it's all out there ready for you to explore.
So just close your eyes, relax, and sink into it.
