SF Bay Area Erotic Hypnosis Group Meetup

SF Bay Area Erotic Hypnosis Group Meetup

Each month, the SF Bay Area Erotic Hypnosis Group ( www.sferotichypnosis.org ) gathers to discuss, learn about, and explore the fun & kinky things we can do with erotic hypnosis, suggestion and trance.

Starting April 2018, our new start time is 8pm at the Center for Sex and Culture, 1349 Mission St, San Francisco, CA.

Please be prompt, as our timeslot is a bit shorter than it used to be!

We are currently looking for a good venue to host a pre-meetup munch near the CSC - please let us know if you have any suggestions, and otherwise, stay tuned!

Our meetups are a combination of lecture, demos, socializing, and group exercises. Things start out specifically beginner-friendly and introductory, but all meetups do also include at least some more advanced material, so there's something of interest for all skill levels.

You are welcome to arrive as late as 9pm (though you will miss introductions!) and depart whenever you wish.

We have a specific class/topic every month, with a rotating panel of local and visiting presenters/facilitators. Please visit our website or Fetlife group ( fetlife.com/groups/37997 ) for info on this month's topic!

Examples of topics we've had before:
Dolls, Robots, & Other (Human) Playthings
Playing With Altered Identity, Dissociation & Memory
Taste of Hypnokink
Training Your Hypnotic Partner
Trance Is Not Sleep!
Hypnotic Orgasms
Building a Hypnotic Scene
Inductionfest!
Improvisational Hypnosis

### What is Erotic Hypnosis, aka EH or Hypnokink?

Erotic hypnosis is the wide range of hot, sexy things we can do with trance and suggestion. This includes enhancing or transforming sensation, creating feelings of immobility or external body control, intensified emotions or experiences of D/s and role play, the creation of positive hallucinations (seeing, hearing, or feeling things that aren't actually there) and playing with memory to temporarily hide recent events from recall. It can be used on its own or in combination with other fun, often BDSM-type things!

We teach EH as a collaborative, improvisational process in which both hypnotist and hypnotee are active participants. Rapport and trust are the foundations of everything we do.

### About Our Group

The San Francisco Bay Area Erotic Hypnosis Group was founded in 2011 as the first Bay Area hypnokink group. Our members include many experienced and knowledgeable hypnotists and subjects, with a variety of other kinks and interests. We are a queer-run group and welcome people of all orientations, genders, abilities and backgrounds.

All our meetups are beginner-friendly; no attendee will be required to participate in any exercise, demo or trance session. It is totally okay to just attend and observe. That said, we strive to foster an environment where people feel comfortable practicing with one another and trying new things. Attendees are held responsible for respecting other people's limits and being clear about their own.

### An Important Note:

If you attend, or indicate you may attend our events, you may be contacted by someone associated with a group of people that have been defaming our group for several years. This group has mounted a concerted campaign against us, and has rejected all efforts toward mediated resolution. We can make ourselves available to discuss this with you to the extent that we are able, and we are very sorry for any discomfort you may experience if you're contacted.
