Pittsburgh-based hypnokink educators Spiral Turquoise and Daja will be providing a primer on all things erotic hypnosis - for those who want to try, those who just want to give it a look, and those who love it and want another look at it.

*What hypnosis is and isn't: myths will be busted and questions will be answered

*Rapport: why hypnotists use it, and how you can use it in non-hypnotic contexts

*Applications of hypnosis in erotic and kinky play, such as: ropeless bondage and freezing; immersive role play; hypnotically induced orgasms; controlled hallucination; customized headspaces; and memory play

*Hypnotic induction techniques, including the Elman induction, instant inductions, and suggestibility test inductions

*Negotiation and consent in hypnosis play

*Safety considerations when playing with hypnosis and other altered headspaces

The presentation will feature suggestibility tests and hypnotic inductions, as well as demonstrations of various hypnotic phenomena. All demonstrations will include prior warnings and descriptions.

He believes in an emphasis on customization, adaptation, and modification in approaching hypnosis and play.
