Have you ever been mid-conversation with your partner about some aspect of what you want in your relationship and realized you are having one conversation and the other person is hearing and speaking from a totally different conversation?

Often, when we use a word - especially those as hot and touchy as sex, love, intimacy and power - the listener is hearing other associations and is dealing with all the fears, judgements, suspicions, and emotions that come along with those associations.

We’ll see that with a little consideration and practice you really can say what you do and don’t want quite easily, with an intentional clarity that is less likely to create feelings of violation on both sides.

Predicaments present the bottom with a choice between bad things or an opportunity to push through a bad thing to get to a good thing.

They're challenging, playful, and intense.

Join us for an evening of difficult choices and enjoyable predicaments.

Dominant/submissive relationships can be supremely satisfying: you get all the love and mutual support of any good relationship, plus all the power that's implicit in D/S.

Max has been doing consensual, deliberate, D/S for 25 years. Not surprisingly, he has a lot to say about the topic.

This is a beginning course in trance, which is the state we are trying to achieve when we use the techniques of hypnosis.

We're going to look at trance in a different way than you might have encountered before in popular culture or in conventional approaches to teaching hypnosis, and you'll learn some new ways of communicating directly with that part of you, or your trance partner. We will also discuss ethics and consent, and the features of trance that require special attention and care in those areas .

Consensual Brainwashing is a multi-faceted and integrated approach for creating what we call "radical compatibility." It is a training approach that makes deep and lasting identity changes to the subject, such that their needs and desires become radically aligned with those of the hypnotist. In this sense its goals are very different from those of consensual slavery, in that the brainwashed subject has no sense of being forced or compelled: they just find that whatever the hypnotist asks of them, is what they already wanted to do anyway.

Consensual Brainwashing is not for everyone. Many people are drawn to hypnosis and D/S because they enjoy the feeling of compulsion, of being forced, of wanting to resist but being unable to do so. But for many others, their definition of submission is to be entirely and joyously guided and led by their dominant partner. For the the latter group, Consensual Brainwashing is the gateway to a deeply satisfying relationship and experience. And we do mean relationship: The process changes both the hypnotist and subject in ways that create a strong and persistent bond. Both informed consent and mutual commitment to the resulting relationship are essential prerequisites to doing this work.
