Whilst I offer live sessions over Skype and not in person, elements of non-verbal communication and observation and analysis of body language can and are still communicated over video. Beyond this, where in person sessions do occur the use of touch can also be incorporated into sessions. I wanted to write a blog post which talks a little about these elements and how they are used in the realm of hypnosis and more specifically erotic hypnosis.
Erotic hypnosis is a form of hypnosis that is focused on enhancing sexual pleasure and arousal. While many people associate hypnosis with verbal suggestions and commands, non-verbal communication is also a powerful tool that can be used to create a deep sense of connection and intimacy between the hypnotist and the person being hypnotized. This blog post will explore the power of non-verbal communication in erotic hypnosis and discuss how touch, eye contact, and body language can be used to enhance sexual pleasure and arousal.
Non-verbal communication refers to the use of body language, touch, and other non-verbal cues to convey information and create a sense of connection with another person. In erotic hypnosis, non-verbal communication is particularly important because it can help to create a safe and supportive environment in which the person being hypnotized can relax and feel comfortable exploring their sexual desires and fantasies. As I mentioned at the start of this post, touch doesn’t apply to my sessions which are done remotely over video, but in a broader context of erotic hypnosis and in-person sessions touch can be a valuable tool which is why I have included it in this post.
The Importance of Non-Verbal Communication in Erotic Hypnosis
A powerful aspect of non-verbal communication in erotic hypnosis in-person sessions is touch. Although touch isn’t really relevant to my work, it is a powerful tool that can be used to create feelings of intimacy and connection between the hypnotist and the person being hypnotized. Through touch, the hypnotist can communicate a sense of safety and support, which can help to create a relaxed and receptive state in the person being hypnotized. It is important to remember that prior consent must be obtained before the session starts to allow the hypnotist to touch the subject. Whilst many people are okay with being touched, some may not be. Also it’s just good manners to ask permission/forewarn people. Typically if I am doing in person sessions with new clients then I would ask permission in advance and state under what circumstances and where I would potentially touch them. E.g. “Would it be okay if during our session I occasionally touched your hand/forearm/forehead/knee (could be one, could be multiple) to assist in deepening your trance and/or reinforcing triggers”. Depending on the situation I would also forewarn them when they’re in trance – for example by saying “in a moment I am going to lightly touch your right hand and when I do you will find yourself going even deeper into trance for me as a result”. The exact wording used will be situation specific but I wanted to give you an idea of how the situation broadly plays out.
Another important aspect of non-verbal communication in erotic hypnosis is eye contact. Eye contact is a powerful way to establish a sense of connection and intimacy between two people. When the hypnotist maintains eye contact with the person being hypnotized, it can create a sense of trust and openness that can help to facilitate the hypnotic process. I’ve found subjects also seek out eye contact with the hypnotist for reassurance. If you (the hypnotist) are relaxed, calm and focused, you’ll convey this through eye contact and encourage the subject to feel the same. Obviously eye contact shouldn’t be constant as that can have the opposite effect (can subconsciously signal unease, suspicion and/or aggression), but especially early in a session, checking in with short bursts of eye contact helps inspire confidence and connection.
Body language is also an important aspect of non-verbal communication in erotic hypnosis. The way the hypnotist carries themselves, the way they move, and the way they position their body can all communicate important information to the person being hypnotized. For example, if the hypnotist is slouching or appears disinterested, it may create a sense of discomfort or disconnection in the person being hypnotized. On the other hand, if the hypnotist appears confident and engaged, it can help to create a sense of safety and trust. As a hypnotist I am also carefully monitoring the body language of my subject so I can ascertain how they’re feeling, what stage of trance they’re at, how receptive they are to my suggestions and which of my suggestions are or aren’t working effectively. I can then use this information to further tailor the session specifically to the individual I am working with to improve odds of success.
Using Non-Verbal Communication in Erotic Hypnosis
There are many ways in which non-verbal communication can be used to enhance sexual pleasure and arousal in erotic hypnosis. To summarise what I spoke about above, here are a few examples:
- Touch: Touch is a powerful way to create intimacy and connection between the hypnotist and the person being hypnotized. The hypnotist may use touch to create a sense of safety and support, or to enhance feelings of sexual pleasure and arousal. For example, the hypnotist may use light touch to enhance sensitivity to physical sensations, or to create a sense of anticipation and excitement. Achieving informed prior consent is of vital importance.
- Body language: Body language can communicate important information about the hypnotist’s mood, intentions, and level of engagement. The hypnotist may use confident and engaged body language to create a sense of safety and trust, or to enhance feelings of sexual excitement and arousal. The hypnotist will also monitor body language of the subject to allow for adjustments and tailoring of approach to ensure higher odds of success.
Potential Risks and Precautions
While non-verbal communication can be a powerful tool in erotic hypnosis, it is important to take precautions to minimize the risks involved. One potential risk of using touch, eye contact, and body language in erotic hypnosis is the possibility of creating a false sense of intimacy or connection between the hypnotist and the person being hypnotized. It is important to remember that the hypnotist is not a romantic or sexual partner, and to maintain appropriate boundaries at all times.
In addition, it is important to obtain informed consent from the person being hypnotized before using any form of non-verbal communication. I know I’ve touched on this earlier in the blog, but it’s important and worth emphasising again and expanding on it a little. Seeking consent means explaining the risks and benefits of the hypnotic process, and giving the person being hypnotized the opportunity to ask questions and express any concerns they may have. It also involved carefully explaining what the subject can expect so they understand what it is they’re potentially consenting to.
Finally, it is important to remember that not all forms of non-verbal communication will be appropriate or effective for every person. Everyone has different preferences and comfort levels when it comes to touch, eye contact, and body language, and it is important to respect these differences and adjust your approach accordingly.
Non-verbal communication is a powerful tool that can be used to enhance sexual pleasure and arousal in erotic hypnosis. Through use of non-verbal communication options such s touch, eye contact, and body language, the hypnotist can create a deep sense of connection and intimacy with the person being hypnotized, helping them to relax and explore their sexual desires and fantasies in a safe and supportive environment.
However, it is important to remember that non-verbal communication should be used with caution, and only with the informed consent of the person being hypnotized. By taking the necessary precautions and respecting individual differences and preferences, hypnotists can use non-verbal communication to create powerful and transformative hypnotic experiences for their clients. I know I certainly have a lot of fun with my sessions and the lovely feedback I receive from my clients suggest they thoroughly enjoy their sessions with me as well.
