Under the Spell: Hypnosis Fetish and Hypnokink

Woman Being Hypnotized

Did you ever notice your girlfriend’s crush on Patrick Jane, how she was extra horny after binge watching The Mentalist? Maybe you thought it was his tousled tresses and the hunky smile he wielded at helpless ladies.

That’s what I thought until I heard about hypnokink, and then the mass crush made more sense to me.

Jane’s character was a consultant to cops. His specialty was hypnosis and gathering data from astute observations that seemed like mind reading. Even for girls like me who weren’t drawn to many gregarious blond charmers, I fall under some kind of erotic spell when watching Mentalist reruns.

Hypnosis is a controversial concept, understood by many as mind control, by others as fake, and others still as a psychological tool for self-improvement.

It could be described as a trance, or an altered state of consciousness, or deep relaxation.

For some, the thought of it is sexually arousing. It’s known as a hypnosis fetish, or hypnokink.

Maybe your ex-gal pal was into detectives more along the likes of John Luther. Or maybe you were the one in a trance, surprisingly aroused when watching a bikini-clad illusionist pulling bunnies out of her boots at a festival.

Hypnosis Fetish Facts

The mental is physical.

The fantasy or actuality of hypnosis, trance, brainwashing, mind control, or being put under a psychological spell might seem cerebral or even spiritual. But for those with a kink or fetish, it’s distinctly arousing physically and sexually.

Thousands of people are sexually aroused by the idea of hypnosis.

It’s not rare. There are entire communities online who daydream and practice their hypnosis fetish. They gather for conferences, workshops, conventions, and meetups.

Hypnosis is a form of BDSM for many, with or without the physical practice of BDSM.

Many hypnokink folks are also traditionally kinky. The idea of the meeting of minds is more often than not some kind of power play—submitting to a master’s psychological manipulations, having your identity taken over, being brainwashed and submissive, hypnotizing a dazzling goddess into submission.

While many leave it entirely to the realm of the imagination, exchanging hypnotist techniques and engaging in psychological rituals alone, for others, this game of power and submission also manifests physically in sadomasochism and bondage.

The effect of hypnosis or falling into a trance has been compared to subspace, a kind of altered state of ecstasy.

Many hypnofetishists understand their desire as a kind of sexual orientation, recalling its onset at a very young age.

While many adventurous people enjoy exploring new fetishes and scenes, for many this kink runs as deep as any other fetish might. Many recall their awakening in early childhood, becoming sexually aroused from a television skit or book that featured mesmerizing fantasies or magicians.

There are countless subcategories, distinct and overlapping, for hypnosis fetish.

The imagination knows no bounds, and the desire for hypnosis and mind control can be combined with, or distinctly merged with, other kink fantasies like the giant fetish, lactation, superheroes, furries, and taboo themes like bestiality and incest.

Hypnokink sites recommend fantasy over actively submitting your mind to hypnosis.

While hypnosis fetishists get together all the time to exchange their mesmerizing powers, most folks and kink sites warn newcomers to proceed with caution. While some refute the idea that another person can actually control your mind, believers are smart enough to know that if it is true, you want to engage with someone you trust.

If you turn on to the idea of hypnotism, it might be prudent not to hook up on your first date. Get to know your partner before you let her into your mind.
