Join us for the Erotic Hypnosis Drop-in!

This 2-hour class aims to equip beginners with the basic skills and knowledge you need to start safely exploring erotic hypnosis on your own. We’ll use a mix of lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on practice to ensure that students leave with a solid foundation in Erotic Hypnosis.

Intended audience

The Erotic Hypnosis Drop-in is for anyone that wants to learn and practice the basics of erotic hypnosis. We welcome those who have never experienced hypnosis, those who have played but want to learn the fundamentals, those who have only recently heard about hypnosis, and anyone who wants to practice basic hypnosis skills in a contained environment.

We aim to create an inclusive environment where everyone can feel comfortable learning and growing. As such, if you need any accommodations so that you can fully enjoy the workshop, please message us directly.

About the Presenters

MindTop (he/him) has been teaching hypnosis on and off (mostly) in the Bay Area for almost a decade. He is passionate about hypnokink, teaching, and expanding the community. During his free time, you can find him playing board games, learning to cook, and exploring the city.

Resonate (she/her) was introduced to hypnokink in 2017 and immediately realized she'd been doing it her whole life. She is a hypno-switch who tends toward artistic, weird, challenging, and joyful play, with a special interest in power exchange between players of equal status.

What to expect during the 'lecture' portion of the class

During this workshop we will cover the following topics: overview of hypnosis, the importance of consent, anatomy of a scene, and managing risks.

What to expect during the hands-on practice portion

Much of the workshop is dedicated to hands-on practice. For practice, we divide the class into groups of 3. One person will be the hypnotist, one will be the subject, and the third will observe. We’ll run the exercise 3 times so that each person experiences all 3 roles. You can always opt out of any exercise at any time - we accept and expect nothing less than enthusiastic consent.

Each month you will learn and practice two contrasting inductions. They will change every month, so come back as often as you want!


We use an artist co-working space and event space in SOMA. Full details will be sent to folks who RSVP "going."

Access to the venue requires walking up a set of stairs. There is no on site elevator.
