Day 2: Getting Smart About Dumbing it Down

Hello, and welcome to a new mini-blog, FAN-uary, where for each of the four weeks this month I’m going to focus on a different Domme whose work I enjoy, and discuss a different video from them each day.
(This one is all video, March will most likely be the same sort of thing, but with audio)

Important:
Content reviewed in this blog is Femdom Erotic Hypnosis that will mostly be for sale. I’ll include links to where you can purchase this content, and everything posted here will be positive, but this isn’t about public worship and devotion, and I hope to find and explore interesting concepts and ideas by talking about these works with all of you.
As always, I will disclose what my relationships to these people are, if any, and while this is sale content, these write ups are not intended to be adds.

Making the content I’ll be reviewing here is hard work. It is time consuming, and it is both creatively and emotionally demanding. PAY FOR YOUR PORN.

I DO NOT HAVE A PROFESSIONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH ANYONE WHOSE WORK I AM REVIEWING AND ENDORSING.

Not yet, but I did have a nice time being “Stupid, like a happy dog.”

Yes, it’s pretty masturbation heavy.

Are There Any Suggestions, Triggers, or Post Hypnotic Suggestions?
Yes, a trigger to become, as the title states, blank and brainless.

Other Thoughts/About The Hypnotist?
Let’s do a quick rundown about 2 topics that deserve their own Know Your Fetish entries: One and Done viewings, and Permissive Suggestions.

One and Done Watching: In day 1 I joked around about how filling the void with porn and chasing down something you’re looking for by consuming a lot of different content. I know not everyone is like this, but I want to talk about it anyway, more so I want to talk about finding something that does hit your sweet spot.
For me, when I find something in hypnosis that really resonates with me, I still don’t go back and watch/listen to it all the time, which is the dead ass opposite of me with other media I like. I re-watch tons of TV/Movies, I’ll re-read books and comics, and it’s better if we don’t talk about how long I’ve been listening to the same music, but I think this is all connected.
Art, and yes hypno-porn is art, speaks to an emotional need (I know I’ve blogged about this before), but with something as compulsive and progressive as a fetish, something that presses our sex buttons and all the emotional after effects that go with it, it’s easier to need new.
It’s easier to say “that was good, but I want better”, especially when it comes to hypnosis content, because there’s this idea that you’ll respond to the next session better than the last, and that maybe the next one will give you that nebulous experience you’re looking for, even if YOU JUST HAD exactly what you want, but your expectations are out of whack so you don’t realize it.

My original idea for this month was going to be 28 days of one person, and cataloging my progress, mental state, etc. as I did a rigorous watching/listening/training, but then I thought that maybe that would get boring for you the reader, so now we’re here. And that brings us to:

Permissive Suggestions: It’s super sexy when a hypnotist says “You will…” and it can work really well, the other thing that essentially always does work well is “You can…” and this is because of how the average mind works, and the fact hypnosis is a cooperative endeavor.
Both “you will”, and “you can” are giving the mind permission to do something, and this is important when looking at suggestions and how they can work.
A suggestion like, bark like a dog is simple, it’s straightforward, and you can say: you will bark like a dog, but you can also so, you will feel the overwhelming urge to bark like a dog.
One focuses on an immediate and external result, the other focuses on a feeling that leads to an external result.
When you look at something more complex, like being submissive, or obedient, etc. then the “You will” style can work well if there’s an established outward set of conditions and external factors like, “You will say Yes Mistress when I ask you a question”.
It has a clear space for a behavior to take place in, and it makes the suggestion and the action a specific and confined event that is easy to recognize and follow.
The other version, “You can feel the overwhelming urge to agree with me” still exists in that same established external place, but it involves your participation in understanding that feeling.
It can be a complex emotional response.
It can feel vague and undefined for you, and as such, maybe not as effective.
And that’s what brings the two ideas together.

If you’re expecting something that engages with you internally, and is complex, like emotional submission and surrender to feel like not being able to open your eyes, you’re going to keep going from clip to clip, from mp3 to mp3 looking for something you think exists, and never finding it. You’ll know that hypnosis is real because your eyes didn’t open, or you barked like a dog, so you’ll try and have that immediate external response to a deeply internalized and complex set of emotional and intellectual changes that a suggestion enables and not demands/outwardly manifests.

So, and I’ll make this as quick as I can  because this one has gotten long, if you look at the suggestion in this session to feel dumb and horny (roughly what it is), it’s framed both as a “can” and a “will”, and it’s a very nebulous idea anyway.
Why? Because you don’t know what it means to be dumb. Being dumb is something you ascribe to someone else, and you only know how smart you are. Not grasping a concept, or not tracking what someone is saying isn’t the same as being “dumb”, and internalizing the suggestion to be stupefied requires a cognizant understanding of intelligence, so there’s no clear definition for your subconscious to work from to manifest being dumb.
Instead, the suggestion being open ended as it is, and permissive as it is, means you’ll feel something you think is akin to being stupefied, and this can be anything from single-mindedly horny to consciously vacant, to whatever feels right to your subconscious.
The thing about that is, there’s no way of “proving” that this is actually working on you as far as your own inner dialogue is concerned as far as analytically knowing you’re getting what you want.

So really, all you can do is trust your gut, listen to your feelings, and give yourself permission to get out of your head and enjoy the moment.
And yes, of course the point of all of this is for us to get out of our heads, so really, that’s the evidence you need and want.
If for just a moment the world is quieter and you’re more in that moment, then yes, it is working, and maybe something else will work better, or maybe with more practice what you’re enjoying now can end up working best.
