Erotic Hypnosis is a new trend of sexual fetish that is becoming quite popular and it seems that everyone wants to know more about it. As an erotic hypnotist I get asked many questions about my practice all the time. Many curious seekers wonder: What is Erotic Hypnosis? Does Erotic Hypnosis Work? Is it Real? Is it Safe? And, of course, How to Do Erotic Hypnosis?

In this ultimate Guide to Erotic Hypnosis, you will learn all about what it is, why enthusiasts enjoy it, what desires it fulfills, plus how to get the most from your erotic hypnosis experience and much more.

I am Mistress Carol.  I am an erotic hypnosis professional and I’ve been creating erotic hypnosis audios for more than ten years.  I am also a trained clinical hypnotherapist. Over the years, more than 4,000 clients have enjoyed my erotic hypnosis files and mp3s and my work has been termed by many as “the best erotic hypnosis on the Internet”.

What Is Erotic Hypnosis?

So, what is erotic hypnosis, exactly?

Hypnosis Definition:

Erotic hypnosis is hypnosis with an added sexual component, used to create a sexual response, increase arousal and to enhance sexual pleasure, using words and trance instead of touch.

What does that mean?

Regular hypnosis is a trance-like state of consciousness in which typical conscious boundaries are bypassed allowing the listener to enter the subconscious mind where limits do not exist.  Since limits do not exist, the subconscious can engage in all sorts of sexual desires and fantasies without conscious interference.

During hypnosis, the hypnotised subject enters an “altered state” in which they appear mesmerized. In such a state, they are much more open to suggestions, have increased focused attention, heightened concentration and may also experience vivid fantasies. In fact, those who become easily immersed in their own inner fantasies or daydreams are much more responsive to hypnosis.

What Happens During Erotic Hypnosis?

During erotic hypnosis, the subject enters a hypnotic trance state of altered consciousness, during which all their senses become heightened to whatever stimuli the hypnotist is suggesting. In other words, they may hear, feel, see, smell, taste, and become fully immersed within the fantasy they are engaged in.

In this way, they become completely engrossed in visualizing, or thinking about the fantasy, as if it were playing out in real life, like entering a multiverse or virtual reality. To the subject, the fantasy feels very real, which is why it is so exciting and becoming increasingly popular.

Does Erotic Hypnosis Work?

There are many skeptics who naturally don’t believe in anything, and they wonder “Is Erotic Hypnosis Real?”

The short answer is, yes. As I mentioned above, I have hypnotized more than 4,000 clients over the years, using erotic trance. But, don’t just take my word for it. Look at the science behind hypnosis.

“Erotic hypnosis does work as long as the person being hypnotized feels safe and comfortable to do so, and is able to be hypnotized.” Dr. David Spiegel, Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine, found that approximately two thirds of adults can be hypnotized[i], where as about “ten percent of the population is generally categorized as ‘highly hypnotizable’.[ii]

People more prone to hypnosis tend to be more trusting, imaginative, intuitive, experimental and more able to suspend disbelief, like when you get caught up in watching a good movie.

During Spiegel’s study, they also found that “hypnotizability is associated with higher levels of the dopamine”, a neurotransmitter also called the “happy hormone,” that allows us to feel pleasure, enthusiasm and excitement. Dopamine is also released during orgasm.[iii]

So, not only does erotic hypnosis work, it also feels good, which is why many people are getting into this type of hypno-kink.

Can Anyone Be Hypnotized?

I personally believe that anyone can be hypnotized, but, you must believe you can be hypnotized.  If you believe it works, or you don’t believe it works, you are right.  Your mind is an extremely powerful and mysterious part of you. 

Your thoughts direct the experiences you have in life.  When pared down hypnosis is relaxation, focused concentration and decreased awareness of the stimuli around you.  You dive deep into your mind and you leave everything else behind following the hypnotist into your subconscious mind.  If you are willing to let go and follow, you will be hypnotized.

How Does Erotic Hypnosis Work?

During my guided erotic hypnosis sessions, I lead people into a very relaxed state and trance with guided suggestions typically using an induction. Sometimes I use previously installed triggers or post-hypnotic suggestions to gently guide them into an altered state where their subconscious mind is more open to suggestion. In this state of mind, you are able to let go of inhibitions that you may normally not be able to do while conscious, thus able to go deep into your erotic fantasies. Trusting your hypnotist is a big factor into helping you with this “letting go”.

In these fantasies anything imaginable can and does happen, depending on the creativity of your hypnotist, which allows the subjects to play out fantasies that could not possibly happen in real life like having sex on a cloud or in outer space. It also gives that person permission to try out a fantasy that they may feel is too taboo for them to try in real life, but is something they secretly desire, like cuckolding, or sissification.

So, erotic trancing can be very stimulating, orgasmic, and thrilling, like having a wet dream.

Is Hypnosis Mind Control?

The true definition of mind control is subverting by means of psychological tactics on an individual’s control of his or her mind.  One acknowledged technique to accomplish this is hypnosis.  In order for one to have control of your mind, they must also have your permission.  This is especially true of erotic hypnosis. 

Mind control tactics can be used without your consent, but, this type of control takes time to accomplish and generally is used far outside of the erotic hypnosis genre, such as hostage situations, military techniques, etc.

Again, I cannot stress enough, know and trust the individual playing inside your mind.

Is Erotic Hypnosis Safe?

Yes.  Generally speaking, the subconscious mind is always aware of your safety and if anything said to you goes against your belief system or what you deem “safe”, you generally come out of trance.  However, as mentioned above, I highly recommend you listen to reputable content creators who you trust and know won’t harm you in any way.

Can a Hypnotist Make You Do Things You Don’t Want to Do?

The short answer is no.  Your subconscious mind is wired to your belief systems.  If you don’t enjoy financial domination or sissy hypnosis, and someone tries to trance you this way, you come out of trance.  You automatically object, even if subconsciously, to the information being said to you and your mind ends the experience abruptly.

Why Do People Enjoy Erotic Hypnosis?

erotic hypnosis

People enjoy erotic hypnosis because it gives them pleasure (remember the dopamine?). But there are many other reasons why erotic hypnosis is so sexy, satisfying and exhilarating.

Reasons why someone may want to practice erotic hypnosis include:

  • Relaxation – Erotic hypnosis is very relaxing and many men use it for that reason alone. Stress and tension melt away and feeling better afterward is a primary benefit.
  • Submission/loss of control – I have many clients who have high-stress jobs and just want to get away from it all for a while. You don’t have to have a submissive personality to enjoy submitting to another and hypnosis is a great way to escape the pressures of daily life.
  • Sexual arousal – Erotic hypnosis is a fabulous way to get turned on and many men love the lasting feeling of arousal it provides long after listening.
  • Hands free orgasms – Yes. Hands free orgasms! The mind is a powerful thing and it can create both physical and mental orgasms in the listener by just listening to the hypnotist.
  • BDSM/Bondage/Strap on fantasies – This type of hypnosis is a great way to indulge in experiences that the listener may not have access to or money to engage in. Plug in your headphones and drift into a Mistress or Master’s dungeon for a little play time. You can indulge any time you want.
  • Blow job fantasies – Close your eyes and listen. Let your mind do all the rest.
  • Feminization – Many listeners are attracted to feminization and might be held back due to culture, circumstances or relationships. This desire can be satisfied by just listening to an erotic hypnosis session.
  • Jerk Off Instructions/Masturbation – Do you enjoy being told what to do? Many an explosive orgasm is had by just listening to a sexy hypnotist tell you how and when to do it.
  • Chastity – Hypnotic male chastity is highly effective for those wanting someone else to control their orgasms.
  • Increased Awareness – During erotic hypnosis the listener has a heightened awareness where all their erotic sensations can be heightened along with it.
  • Sexual Fantasy Roleplay – Many singles and couples enjoy the idea of sexual fantasy roleplay which can be enhanced with erotic hypnosis.  Do you enjoy cuckolding or hot wife fantasies?  Erotic hypnosis is a great way to experience them.
  • Taboo Pleasures – Erotic hypnosis allows listeners to experience taboo pleasures, things they would never think of doing in real life, but because they are pure mind-fantasy, they can fulfill these dark secret fantasies safely and discreetly.
  • More Intense Orgasms – Because you are in a more relaxed, free state during hypnosis, it is easier to submit to your body’s pleasures and let go, which in turn can greatly enhance orgasms and make them much more intense.
  • Overcoming Shame – In some instances, erotic hypnosis can be used to overcome shame, sexual trauma and even sexual dysfunction, such as premature ejaculation, improving stamina, or erectile dysfunction. For women, it can make them achieve orgasm more easily as well.

More Erotic Hypnosis Facts & FAQs

As I mentioned at the beginning of this article, I get asked many questions about erotic trancing all the time. Here are the most frequent questions and facts on this exciting topic!

Is Hypnosis the Same as Trance?

Yes.  Have you ever lost the memory of the last five miles you drove on a long straight, lonely highway?  You fell into trance.  You fell into hypnosis. 

Experts say we become hypnotized at least a dozen times a day, naturally, and without a sexy voice guiding the way.  Can you imagine what you can experience with the sexy guidance?  Anything your little heart desires.

What is the difference between Erotic Hypnosis and Sexual Hypnosis?

Erotic hypnosis stimulates the listener’s mind to arouse the subject in a specific way, teasing, losing control, mental bondage, fantasy, etc.  Sexual hypnosis concentrates on stimulating the listener for the “after-session” pleasure to enhance the effects of personal sexual gratification or a partner’s gratification.

What is the difference between Erotic Hypnosis and Sexual Therapy?

Erotic hypnosis sexually stimulates the mind and is designed to create arousal in the listener.  It is not considered therapy but entertainment (although you can feel really good afterwards).  Anyone can play in this playground with a little reading, practice and confidence.  Sexual therapy is psychotherapy and helps those with issues surrounding sexual function, sexual feelings and intimacy, and is administered by a trained therapist.

BDSM and Erotic Hypnosis

Erotic hypnosis is very popular in BDSM societies, as another erotic tool in the Dom/me or Mistress’ toolbox. On Fetlife there are over 18,000 kinksters who say they are into “erotic hypnosis”, and just about as many (over 17,000) who enjoy “hypnosis.” That’s a lot of kinksters into hypno-kink!

Erotic hypnosis can enhance the power play of dominance and submission during BDSM, and it allows some people to be able to give up control more easily. In fact, many kinksters into BDSM say that erotic trancing feels similar to subspace.

As an erotic Mistress, I enjoy using erotic hypnosis on my willing subjects, because… I am a Dominatrix.  I enjoy dominating you in hypnosis.  I practice BDSM in my personal life and the BDSM experiences I take you on in Femdom hypnosis are experiences I have or have had in real life.  Try The Sex Sling.  You’ll discover just what I mean.

Is Erotic Hypnosis a Fetish?

For some people who can’t get off in any other fashion, yes, erotic hypnosis could be considered a fetish. Hence the words hypno kink, or hypno fetish. Due to the dopamine effects and the ability to achieve great pleasure and intense hands-free orgasm, it could also become a bit addicting, just like any other form of erotic arousal (aka porn, masturbation, etc. …) However, for most people it is just a sexually alluring escape from reality that they enjoy now and then.

Wikipedia notes that, “Hypnosis fetishism has been recorded in the clinical literature as far back as 1957, when George Merrill noted that ‘for to many hypnotic subjects, hypnosis has strong sexual connotations.’ Mind control and erotic brainwashing are other subsets of the hypnokink fetish.

Who is Erotic Hypnosis for?

Everyone can enjoy erotic hypnosis and there are many different types of this form of hypnosis made for many different types of people.  Personally, I focus primarily on erotic hypnosis for men in the theme of domination, but, with a little research on the internet you can find exactly what you desire.

Why do Men Enjoy This?

There are many reasons men enjoy this such as:

  • To help them to relax
  • To help them get turned on
  • To help them get off
  • To fulfill a fantasy
  • To have great orgasms
  • To enjoy eroticism
  • To lose control for awhile
  • To improve erections
  • To feel better

What Are the Advantages of Erotic Trancing?

Erotic hypnosis fulfills the needs and desires of many listeners for many reasons.  Mentally, it’s a wonderful way to relax and get away from it all.  It quiets the mind and takes the listener to his/her favorite sexy place, leaving them feeling wonderful when trance is over.  Physically, erotic hypnosis can help those with erectile dysfunction or prostate issues.  Many listeners report the hardest erections they’ve had since their twenties and others with prostate issues can achieve an orgasm through the use of nipple play instead of penis stimulation.

How is Erotic Trance different from Erotic Hypnosis Stories?

Being in hypnosis removes your inhibitions and puts you inside the experience.  Audio porn, or erotic hypnosis stories, are stories, and while they may be erotic, they are not real hypnosis because they rely on external stimulation (outside yourself). Erotic hypnosis is all about you inside your own story.

What is Erotic Hypnosis Porn?

Basically, erotic hypnosis porn is what it sounds like. However, rather than actual porn, the videos are more like audio porn turned into a video and animated with spiraling hypnotic graphics. So, similar to erotic hypnosis audios, but with an added video affect.

You can watch my short erotic hypnosis video here.

How is Erotic Hypnosis Different from ASMR?

ASMR [autonomous sensory meridian] (also referred to as brain tingles) is a flow-like mental state that may induce arousal from certain noises or watching very specific types of videos.

Triggers could include watching someone run their fingers through their hair, the sound of pages being turned in a book, low volume sounds and soothing voices, whispering, scratching, crinkling, or light touch. It is said to be deeply relaxing and comforting.[iv]

According to ASMR University, ASMR feels like:

  • Physical sensations (what you feel):  light and pleasurable tingles, sparkles, fuzziness, or waves of relaxation in the head, neck, spine, and throughout the rest of the body.
  • Psychological sensations (how you feel): deep and soothing feelings of relaxation, calmness, comfort, peacefulness, restfulness, or sleepiness.[v]

So, while it has some pleasurable similarities to erotic hypnosis, ASMR is very different.

How Long Does Erotic Hypnosis Take?

That’s entirely up to you.  I have many listeners who start to fade away simply by listening to the sound of my voice.  Many more respond immediately to the word sleep (snap).  It can take one second.  It can take fifteen minutes.  It all depends on your hypnotic training and your willingness to “let go” and enter a trance state.

If you find you are resistant to a quick hypnotic entry, remember, many who are able to do this have been trancing for years.  It doesn’t mean you can’t do it.  You just haven’t learned to do it yet.

The length of erotic hypnosis recordings varies.  Many listeners like to use erotic hypnosis overnight while they are sleeping.  Others have trouble with longer trances and enjoy shorter ones.  Every listener is different in the way they trance and what they like.  There is no one size fits all in erotic hypnosis.

Can Men Orgasm from Hypnosis?

Simple answer: Got a brain? Then yes!

What is an Orgasmic Trigger?

An orgasmic trigger can be a multitude of stimuli.  I have created hands-free sessions that cause you to experience a mind-gasm (an orgasm that remains in the mind without physical stimulation) with the snap of my fingers (some can experience a physical orgasm with this method also).  I have several recordings that use a word to induce this sensation inside of you.  During controlled masturbation, I keep a subject on edge until I allow him to come.  The word I use is his permission and subconsciously and physically he explodes when I say it. 

As you see, an orgasmic trigger can be used in a variety of ways.  “When you hear a duck quack, you come.”  If you are a willing subject, one could hypnotize you to allow this to happen.  It just depends on where your limits lie.

What is a Hypnotic Suggestion?

A hypnotic suggestion is something you do or experience during or after your trance that was suggested to you by the hypnotist.  It’s a directive given by the hypnotist for the subject to accomplish such as a completing a task or experiencing a feeling.  “When you hear a duck quack, you come” is a hypnotic suggestion.  Whether you do it is entirely up to you.  A hypnotist cannot make anyone who doesn’t want to quit smoking, quit smoking.  Nor can she/he make you come when a duck quacks unless you want to come when that duck quacks. 

You need not be concerned that someone can make you do something you don’t want to do.  If it doesn’t resonate with you subconsciously, your subconscious mind ignores it.

What Does Erotic Hypnosis Feel Like?

While engaging in erotic trance may feel different to everyone, here are some customer experiences:

“This is an AMAZING display of hypnotic control. It knocks me out cold, within seconds. Deep hypnosis takes over… The rewards are spectacular… I want to experience over and over again.”— Severin Severin

“Sometimes to feel the full effects of a hypnosis session you really need to just lay down on a bed, completely naked, in a warm room and let go and relax. Close your eyes and then allow Mistress Carol to be in control for a while. Allow Her voice to drift into Your mind and takeover for a while. This is one of those sessions where I did just that and then afterwards was one of the deepest most relaxing trance full body experiences I have ever felt… Afterwards the session is all sort of fuzzy, but I felt so incredibly good. I simply love this hypnosis session. I am so happy and thankful to be in Her hypnotic care. Thank You Mistress Carol.”—slave royale

“What in the name of all that is Hypnotic and Blissful just fucking happened to me? i dared listen to this file, that’s what. Oh boy it feels good. This is indescribably good. It’s at a level of skill that defies logic or explanation. It’s mind-blowing. i’ve never been so deep. And i’ve never been held there so easily or for so long. Mistress Carol must put a LOT of work and guile into her craft but it all feels so effortless when you experience it for yourself. To be floating mindlessly under Mistress Carol’s control and having Her hypnotically implant her control deeper and deeper inside my mind like this is pure bliss. I’ve never ever felt so utterly blown away as i crawl and fumble back to consciousness. I’ve just experienced the most unimaginably amazing hypnosis of my life.”—happy customer

“At some points it felt like a dream in that I could hear Her voice at times, but then other times I was way out of it and probably nearly asleep. I have no idea what the hypno-trigger commands are in the series, but I know that I am enjoying every bit of the sessions. Most of the times I cannot remember details, but only warm wonderful feelings afterwards. I feel so safe in Mistress’s hypnotic care that I can let go and relax knowing that She is in control, and I fully trust Her. Thank You Mistress Carol.”—another happy trancer

How do I know If I have Been Hypnotized or Not?

Are you relaxed?  Did everything around you seem to fade away?  Did you find yourself focused on what was being said to you?  You were hypnotized. 

Afterwards, Do You Remember What Happened During the Trance?

Again, this is entirely up to the listener.  Many enjoy being hypnotized and not remembering the trance, yet, following all the instructions (subconsciously) that were placed inside during hypnosis.  It’s a rush and extremely sexy. But, many people remember everything. 

One of my personal slaves remembers everything I say to him in hypnosis.  No matter how hard I try, post hypnotic amnesia is not effective on him.  His brain is wired to remember.  So, if you remember everything after trance, you are wired this way too. 

How to Get Started with Erotic Hypnosis

I recommend finding a reputable erotic hypnotist that you resonate with first.  Just because one claims to be an erotic hypnotist doesn’t guarantee they have the training and skills to do it successfully.  It takes education, practice and confidence to successfully work with the subconscious mind of another and make it a lasting positive experience that they will remember fondly and want to do again and again.  Find someone you trust and feel comfortable with to enjoy a safe, long-lasting relationship with erotic hypnosis.

How to Think Your Way to Orgasm with Erotic Hypnosis

Yes, you can think your way to orgasm.  While is may sound fantastic (and it is for many) lots of people are able to “think” themselves to orgasm. That’s right. These are called hands free orgasms of HFO for short.

However, if it doesn’t come easy it may take some practice. During erotic hypnosis it is much easier to climax without touching oneself to stimulate pleasure, as you are much more receptive to suggestion and can more easily let go. During erotic trance, it is easier to tap into pleasure sensations you feel in your body and to enhance them. It’s all about stimulating yourself in your powerful subconscious mind. Orgasm actually begins in the brain first before that stimulus is sent to your genitals. Erotic hypnosis can make you orgasm hands free.

Afterall, the brain IS the body’s biggest sex organ!

Ways to help you achieve a hands-free orgasm include:

  • Get into a comfortable place, private, with no interruptions.
  • Be in a good frame of mind.
  • Get cozy, lie down, add warm blankets if you wish. Being warm helps the body and mind relax.
  • Get into a deep state of relaxation.
  • Be open and curious to the experience, with no expectations or goals.
  • Try orgasmic breathing techniques like those used in meditation and yoga to get you in a deep receptive state.
  • Try erotic hypnosis as a quick, sure-fire way to think your way to orgasm.

How Can I Learn Hypnosis?

There are many educational venues on the internet to learn hypnosis.  Take a course.  There are many to choose from though the good ones don’t come free.

Buy a book.  Learn some standard inductions such as a progressive relaxation induction and a count down induction.  Create a hypnosis plan for your subject.  If you have a plan in place, it’s much easier to be confident and successful.  Be prepared and if need be fake it until you make it.

Practice.  Practice.  Practice. Practice does make perfect and the more you do it the better you get at it.

Where Can I Find Erotic Hypnosis?

If you punch in “erotic hypnosis reddit” you will find many subreddits including mine on erotic hypnosis. There are also many erotic hypnosis videos on youtube, and other places as well.

That said, here are some of my customers favorites types of erotic hypnosis and categories.
