Erotic hypnosis is the practice of hypnosis for recreational purposes.
Practices such as persuasion and mind control are often included in the practice. Erotic hypnosis is typically, but not exclusively, practised within the BDSM subculture. Recreational hypnosis does not include amateur or unlicensed hypnotherapy nor the therapeutic application of neurolinguistic programming and similar disciplines.
Reducing inhibitions and increasing arousal is a notable goal of recreational hypnosis. The placement of trigger words in the subject's mind as post-hypnotic suggestion to produce actions and experiences on-demand is a common practice. Erotic hypnosis can include suggestions intended to improve sexual health.
Hypnosis can be used within a domination and submission relationship to reinforce power exchange and as a form of play. This ranges from hypnotically-induced orgasms to long-term conditioning. The act of hypnosis itself is erotic and relationship-affirming for many power exchange couples, as the subject surrenders control and opens themselves to mental vulnerability.
