"Rafe, from Oakland, California, now has regular sessions with sex therapist Lisa Skye Carle.
She said: "What Rafe is experiencing is a 'transfer orgasm' - where another place on the body gives the same sensation. He has significant reduction in pain after a session.""

I thought prostitution was illegal in the UK.

I've heard of people retraining their bodies to be able to orgasm from areas not known as erogenous zones after traumatic injuries before and it is so fascinating. I honestly would love to find a documentary or article that really goes in depth on the process.

Hmm, orgasm control plus erotic hypnosis can do stuff like this, though usually the idea is to make it something that is unlikely to be triggered in public. This case shows just how fluid our orgasmic response can be, under extreme circumstances. The sex therapist is helping with reducing his pain sensitivity? I'm assuming that means that this isn't just an orgasmic response but an overall heightened sensitivity. I wonder if he could have avoided that through focused training and conditioning or if it would have been all or nothing because of his situation.

Kind of puts a new spin on Shakespeare's "I bite my thumb" line though. Yowch.

Well, there are a lot of kinksters devoted to the practice on FetLife. It depends on what you are looking for, I think. There is plenty of evidence that hypnosis has some effect and that has been backed by brain imaging. There are devotees who are simply addicted to trancing, and there are scripts that one can use to "hypnotize" yourself into behaving in specific ways you want to act sexually. It can't make you do anything you don't want to do or is against your basic nature. Your subconscious is always aware at some level of what is going on and will simply act to kick you out of trance if something really stupid is going on. But let's say someone is a masochist and wants their orgasmic response to be triggered by specific types of pain applied to a certain part of the body. This can be done through orgasm control training, but the process can be greatly helped by erotic hypnosis, aligning their conscious mind with their subconscious and helping to reprogram the mind in that way. It doesn't take away normal function, so normal stimuli will affect the masochist in the same way, but this additional stimulus can now trigger it, and eventually can become the preferred way to reach orgasm.

I haven't actually started down the road as a hypnotist but I've been doing background research to see what it is capable of. Erotic hypnosis is simply hypnosis to further some sexual goal or fetish or as a fetish itself. There are trance junkies out there, it can put some people into a headspace similar to an endorphine high.

That being said, are there scammers operating as hypnotists? I have no doubt. And from what I've seen on FetLife, there are also a lot of people who don't really know what they are doing who try to offer their services to others. They take a course or two and think that they can do it all, and then fail quite a bit because it's not about what you know, it is how you apply it. But there are also a lot of hypnotists who definitely know what they are doing. And there are a lot of others who only work with their signficant others and seem to do well with that.

And when it does work, often people don't even realize it worked. They call them up afterwards and say "Well, you didn't manage to hypnotize me into stopping smoking but I'm happy because I decided to quit on my own after all."

The mind is a funny thing.
