Consent

Over the years I’ve used my profile picks to describe what kind of play I’m looking for and tell people what I really don’t want. I have written and rewritten these picks so many times, to no avail. But I just saw a screenshot from Twitter that gets to the heart of it so well, so this has gone in my profile:

if ur a hypnodom and you use hypnosis to try to override a subs consent or attempt to use hypno to coerce or push past a subs limits in a scene as a way to assert ur control over their mind thats not an expression of hypnokink thats straight up abuse/assault

There’s a lot more that could be said about consent in hypnosis (and believe me, I have a lot more to say on that subject), but that tweet gets to the heart of it very well.

People regularly ask me to write more stuff for my blog, but the truth is it gets depressing. Pretty much every story I have to tell is about a violation of consent – there are so many of them. But looking back, some of them are sexy too (in retrospect!), so who knows, maybe I’ll write some of them up.

    Consent, and consentual non consent is a hard one to nail down at times, I know that I’ve gone too far with out explicit permission in the past with some, and with others have been told “oh, my profile says blah, which is permission to go further” so not far enough with others.

    So it can be tricky, and often fun. I do overall find that as far as I do go, most express that they wou,d like, to go further, but I try hard not to push my subjects willingness to go further without at the same time reinforcing to them that they can alwayssay “no” at any time, no matter what or who says otherwise.

    It’s a fun idea to think of the idea that “it feels so good to say yes, that you don’t want to ever say no to me”, but that’s a huge rabbit hole that shouldn’t be followed without discussion and explicit conse t prior to beginning.

    On a lighter note, you’re a beautiful person, and I’m always grateful for the snippets of your blog that you give us, I always learn a little something from them, but you owe no one to make them, other than your own wishes.

    ( Untill I hypnotise you I to updating it more regularly that is :p )

    hehe. Thank you for saying so. I do have a few articles queued up, 2 a week for the next 2-3 months roughly.
    I think people going further than they discussed or planned on SL is very common, and a natural consequence of the way people approach SL. I’ve been having a lot of thoughts about consent, and have several posts on that coming (one has already been posted, where I say the thing to watch out for specifically, is dominants going over already-stated boundaries – the already-stated part being very important).
