A soft whisper and a tantalizing touch can ignite sexual energy to the point of orgasm. Foreplay triggers our senses and takes us to a state of euphoria with blood rushing throughout the body to the most erogenous zones. Typically, when we climax, it's a response to the physical pleasure we feel either from a partner or ourselves.
But, could we possibly achieve a hands-free orgasm on command?
Erotic hypnotists say yes.
A person is still conscious in hypnosis, but loses the power to take voluntary action, and becomes highly responsive to suggestion or direction. Contrastingly, erotic hypnosis acts as guided meditation that elicits sexual arousal with no touching at all. Although it is an induced state, the person still remains in control.
The Mind-Body Connection
The brain plays a crucial role in sexual arousal. It needs to receive relevant messages, or signals to be able to orgasm. It’s where all pleasure and pain is experienced. Although it feels as though we’re experiencing pleasure or pain in a certain body part, it is the brain that’s experiencing it. In other words, the body part is sensing the stimulation of the brain.
“While you can't change the way your brain responds to the messages you give it, you can change the messages that you are giving to your brain. This is why aligning your thoughts and actions is so important,” Jacqui Olliver, a sex strategist and The Technique Modifier at End the Problem told Medical Daily.
The brain acts as a “pleasure center” to let us know what is enjoyable and what is not. For men and women, there are four types of nerves responsible for sending information to the brain during an orgasm: the hypogastric nerve, which transmits signals from the uterus and the cervix in women, and from the prostate in men; the pelvic nerve transmits signals from the vagina and cervix in women, and from the rectum in both sexes; the pudendal nerve transmits from the clitoris in women, and from the scrotum and penis in men; and the vagus nerve transmits from the cervix, uterus, and vagina in women.
So if pleasure is transmitted through nerves via touching, how can the brain be stimulated without any physical touch?
Orgasms On Command
Orgasms can be achieved on command through meditation whether it’s done verbally or through music.
Stefani Love of Binaural Beats Ultra, an album that induces hands-free orgasm, suggests this could be achieved by simply listening to a track via headphones while paying attention to breathing, sensations, and feelings as the music plays and takes you to a state of sexual arousal.
There are two types of orgasms on command: instant orgasms known as “climax” or “dry orgasms,” and “true orgasms,” according to Jerry Storey, Certified & Erotic Hypnotist.
In the first type of orgasm, “ the muscles of the body that normally experience contractions will, upon being triggered, contract in exactly the same manner as they would during a natural or normal orgasm,” Storey told Medical Daily. The nerves will experience the same pleasurable feeling, although the pleasure signals will come directly from the brain and not as much from the sensory nerves in the genital region.
Meanwhile, “true orgasms” are achieved using two or more trigger words, phrases, or touches. For example, Storey can give a hypnotee a trigger, such as "scintillating" and this command will begin to cause erotic arousal.
“Each time I say that word, the pleasure will double. If I use a touch trigger like holding their hand in both of my hands, the pleasure will increase 5 fold,” he said.
Storey can lay trigger upon trigger with the intention of causing erotic arousal, lubrication, and preparing for orgasm. When the final trigger is spoken or given physically, the orgasm will occur, or “as programmed.”
Orgasming On Command: Is It Safe?
The ability to orgasm on command allows us to have a better understanding of how the mind and body work together for us to feel sensations. It can improve sexual performance, according to Love, because it gives men and women greater control over when and how they orgasm. Here, we’re able to enjoy sex in the moment, and orgasm when we want to.
Previous research has found men are more likely to ejaculate too fast, before their partner. Men who were diagnosed with premature ejaculation (ejaculating in less than two minutes), and healthy men admitted that either a lack of control or hypersensitivity, (being too aroused) was the cause of their early release. Other men cited problems with their partner, anxiety, or health issues.
Mastering orgasm control via erotic hypnosis could potentially help partners feel mutually fulfilled and satisfied, and even climax in unison.
