Hypnosis has somewhat of a bad reputation as well as it’s own following in the realms of kink. I’m actually in the process of becoming a certified hypnotherapist, so this was especially interesting to me when I was contacted by Daniel, the owner of Hypnotic Dreams, seeing if I would like to review one of his stories. I’m not as interested in the mind-control aspect of hypnosis the way some people fetishize it, but being the idea of able to plant kinky post-hypnotic suggestions and triggers are both highly appealing.
I chose “Demon Seed” a non-consent themed erotic hypnotic story but there are various other hypnotic stories oriented toward women that run from vanilla to kinky (though all submissive) and a small smattering of hypnotic stories oriented toward men that are all submissive as well. Each story page has detailed information about the story and you can listen to a preview before you buy. Some stories plant post-hypnotic suggestions and others don’t.
The key to any hypnosis is allowing yourself to be hypnotized. There is a reason why the phrase “all hypnosis is self hypnosis” was coined, not just to try and get away from hypnosis’ bad reputation, but because the hypnotist can’t force someone into hypnosis who is actively working against being hypnotized. You also can’t be forced to do anything against your moral or ethical code while hypnotized, not that these stories have things for you to do, but for some the idea of a post-hypnotic suggestion is frightening.
The beauty of all the stories offered by Hypnotic Dreams is that they all are geared toward pleasure. Quite a few of them, actually, are specifically designed to help heighten sexual pleasure in various ways such as increasing the libido in general, increasing enjoyment of giving oral sex, or increasing submissive desires, among other things. They’re written and designed with the listener in mind. The only downfall of the site offerings that I can find is that they are all heterosexual. However, Hypnotic Dreams only recently began offering male-oriented stories so perhaps some queer stories may come in the future.
Since you get the story in a downloadable mp3 you can listen to the story as many times as you like. It was easy to download and while $25 is a little pricey for an erotic story I think it is a reasonable price for what you get: a hypnotic erotic story. Obviously a lot of thought and care has been put into this story and I’m sure all the others are crafted to the same standards.
“Demon Seed” itself begins with an introduction which is the same as the preview of the story I believe and then follows a general hypnotic framework: an induction technique to get you into a trance state, the story itself, and a count from 1 to 5 to bring you back to reality. It was quite easy for me to drop into trance with his induction without any problem at all.
The story revolves around being tricked into summoning a demon who then ties you up and forces you to submit to his will, turning you into his servant. I thought the story itself was both well written and well delivered, each time I listen to it I can feel the sensations that the story evokes quite physically. It’s as if they are actually happening to me, and I am left with a need for sex. I don’t think there’s been a time I listened to this that I didn’t almost immediately jump Onyx at the first chance I had.
The story in and of itself was not nearly as arousing as the hypnotic aspects of it. I believe that if I had simply been reading or listening to the story without the hypnosis element I wouldn’t have gotten nearly as much out of it or want to listen to it again. As this story has no post-hypnotic suggestions there weren’t really any lingering affects aside from the arousal afterward. It was a perfect introduction to erotic hypnosis for me and has me interested in more.
