Hmm, this is kind of hard, because I’ve been into hypno since before I knew what sexuality even was, I memorized the NLP bit in Artemis Fowl and the Lost Colony (I still remember the “I’ll be wearing a <> tie. Pay attention to that. There’s a hundred and one ways this can go wrong, and the police could tie one of us up.”). Even my first dream that I realized was sexual several years after the fact involved hypnosis! 

Some ideas as to why I’m into it: I’m a very individual person, being near people, interacting with them, etc., is not *natural* to me, I often have a thing running when I’m with people wondering “am I having quite a fun time? if not, how do I extricate myself?”

But unfortunately, I’m not able to take care of my desires just by myself, so I entangle myself with other people, so hypno/mc is a way to patch these contradictions to just directly move them into ways that I prefer, rather than having to do something so annoying as ~communicating~ 

There’s another aspect of direct power that I like, which is imposing either temporary restrictions or modifications that are too powerful for most people to be able to do directly to themselves, changing their perceived body, or ability to speak normally, or cognitive capacity

Huh, it’s interesting that that stuck with you. If you’d asked me for a list of top MC moments in Artemis Fowl, that would not even have made the list. Didn’t strike me as salient at all.

>>Even my first dream that I realized was sexual several years after the fact involved hypnosis!

Mine was about being assimilated by the Borg. I was kind of disturbed at first by how much I enjoyed it, but I got used to it after a while.

(It might have helped that the delay was shorter: it was maybe a few months afterward that I stumbled across some hypno-fetish stuff on TV Tropes, reevaluated my entire life through this new lens, and went “…well *that* explains a lot”.)

>>But unfortunately, I’m not able to take care of my desires just by myself

I *mostly* can (it helps a lot to be ace), but sometimes I just desperately want to drift off to sleep in the arms of someone I love and trust and I’m still not sure what to do about that.
