Kwan Yin's Hypnotic Limits

One of my customers just informed me that Goddess Kwan Yin passed away last year. While active as a hypnodomme, she maintained hypnotic-submission.org, which is now gone. Remnants of the web site remain in obscure archives, but her advice was often good enough to warrant being preserved where people will actually read it. So I copied her page, Hypnotic Limits, on my site. This page is about safety during online hypnosis and contains some good, basic advice for beginners.

I'll see about posting her FAQ as well. (Her FAQ was considerably different than mine. )

updated description for better marketing

Building the Perfect Fetish sells about half as well as my other "for women" recordings. Yet, most of the people who have bought it have loved it. So I have to assume the problem is in my marketing, either the title, description, or the sample.

A few months ago, I thought about changing the title, but honestly couldn't think of a better one. I ended up just adding the word "Hypnosis" to the title, which wasn't a real change. I did changed the audio sample, but that didn't increase sales. So today I rewrote the description. Hopefully this will make the recording appealing to a larger audience.

Marketing has never been my strong suit. Earlier this year, I read a couple of marketing books, Blue Ocean Strategy and Waiting for your Cat to Bark. I also occasionally read Holly Buchanan's blog about marketing to women, but I haven't been able to apply much of what I read. Little-to-none of it seems to apply to my type of product. (Or I just don't understand marketing.)

If this doesn't help, I'll probably have to resign myself to the fact that Building the Perfect Fetish just has a limited appeal; until a Trickster god gets a marketing guru addicted to my voice.

Started taking guitar lessons today

I've always liked to lay a track of classical guitar music under my recordings. But I've also always been very much aware of how limited my playing is. It's very difficult for me to find songs that I can play and that fit the mood of the recordings. So I started taking lessons again.

I've taken a few lessons in the past, but I've been on my own since I bought a nylon string guitar. It's been almost two years, and I've never gotten as comfortable with the instrument as I'd like. Teachers that specialize in classical music are a bit difficult to find in the Detroit area, but I think I found someone who'll help me improve.

One of my biggest problems has always been the shape of my fingernails. Never felt like I had that right. It felt funny to have a guy hold my hand and file down the nails like he was giving me a manicure, but it did improve the tone of my playing.

The brain works in mysterious ways

A few weeks ago, I sat down to start a hypnosis script for getting a woman to love sucking cock. But it just wouldn't flow. So I started writing Demon Seed instead. That script flowed out so freely, I thought the momentum would carry me through the next script. So I started working on Reoriented, to introduce straight women to bisexuality. The introduction flowed nicely, but when I got just a little beyond that, it started looking like a dead end. I have to rethink the approach.

So today I took another look at the fellatio script, and guess what. The introduction just came together. So now I have two partial scripts and I'm not sure which one will my ridiculously undisciplined mind will be able to complete first. It's almost like my conscious mind and subconscious mind are operating in two different tracks.

Intro to Reorientation (bisexuality)

I wrote an introduction for Reorientated (working title), a script that will be designed to nudge heterosexual women towards being bicurious and then hopefully openly bisexual. Although I haven't yet worked out too many details yet, having the intro written helps me develop the outline for the rest of the recording.

If things continue to go as they have been, I should be able to write a whole script by the end of Nov.

It would be nice if the final script could bring both heterosexual and gay women closer to bisexuality. But that's not the way I see it working right now.

1st draft of Demon Seed

Today I completed the first draft of my demon rape fantasy. (The working title had been Asteroth the Corruptor. I think the new title comes from the subtheme of the demon's cum being an addictive narcotic.) The story was more arousing to me than I initially expected. I've never been a sadist, myself. But I've always loved the idea of taking an ordinary woman and transforming her into a lustful, yet submissive and devoted servant. And that became a part of this story. The pain, the fear, the arousal, all serve to free the woman from her own inhibitions, releasing the inner sexual animal. It was quite arousing to write, and I expect it will be very arousing for women to listen to.

The writing seemed to flow much easier than Tango in Subspace, tho not quite as easy as The Couch Trip. Still, it's quite an improvement over the time I took to write my first 3 recordings. At that time, the writing process was significantly hindered by a chronic headache and the fact that I was either attending grad school or working full-time. Now that those things are out of the way, I can focus more on developing new HD scripts. And I think I may even be able to get a bit ambitious; maybe set a goal of producing 6-8 new recordings in 2010.

I also created a web page with the following description

Written for masochistic women and those into kidnap and rape fantasies. Your are tricked you into summoning the demon of lust and madness. He takes you back to his lair and binds you with supernatural restraints. You try to resist, but the demon knows how to selectively inflict pain to make you squirm against his cock until your body's arousal overrides your mind. He desolves your will into a haze of mindless lust and your body fucks him until he releases his seed; an addictive, mind-altering narcotic that makes you forever his. Fetish Elements include: Kidnapping, bondage suspension, rape, loss of control, scratching, spanking, demon sex, enormous cock, and pain.

Actually, I'm still debating if this counts as a "kidnap" fantasy, but no harm in trying to reach a new audience, right?

Spanking Fantasies (part 2)

While looking for web sites that review erotic literature, I came across a review of The Erotic Buzz's review of Naughty Spanking 3. They say this is a great book to start sampling spanking literature, so I put the book on my Amazon.com wish list. Unfortunately, none of the people who actually buys me gifts even know about hypnoticdreams, so I'll probably end up buying it for myself when I get ready to start writing my own spanking fantasy.
