Self-Hypnosis as Self-Sabotage

Deliberate vulnerability is a core part of what a submissive person can offer their dominant partner. Intentionally becoming open to another’s influence- whether that’s referred to as training, conditioning, brainwashing, or colonization- can be among the most frightening things we do, feeling very much like self-sabotage or throwing oneself under the bus. It can also be one of the most rewarding things we do.

This workshop will approach hypnotic conditioning from the standpoint of active bottoming, treating it as something submissives can do in collaboration with their partners. We’ll discuss possible hypnotic effects, negotiation and risk mitigation, practical skills, and a range of goals. Demos, exercises, and plenty of filthy stories will give attendees many ways to get started and possibilities to consider.

Both dominant and submissive perspectives will be included, and people of all roles are invited to attend. However, the skill-building exercises are designed to focus on submissives’ skillsets. This is edgeplay: while we’ll discuss our thinking regarding risks and our precautions, please come prepared to make your own risk assessments.


Attendees of all sexes, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and relationship orientations are welcome.

Therapeutic hypnosis is outside the scope of this class and will not be discussed.

Attendance is limited to 16 people

About the Presenter:
Najalaise is maniacal but decent. Even before joining the organized BDSM community in 2005, they were exploring kink and introducing others to figging, play piercing, sounding, fisting, and other delightful pastimes. More recently, Naj has had the pleasure of presenting for Dark Odyssey: Surrender in San Francisco, Twisted Tryst in Indiana, Leather Reign in Seattle, Helsingin Akateemiset Kinkyt in Finland, FapCon in Calgary, and more. Naj strives to use their perspective as a nonbinary queer switch to flavor education which is inclusive, nuanced, and creative.
