Erotic Audio: Why We Enjoy it

By | October 2, 2017

Why do we listen erotic audio? To experience the excitement and arousal that we enjoy feeling. In 1989, the Doobie Brothers recorded one of my all time favorite songs, The Doctor.

Music is the doctor
Makes you feel like you want to
Listen to the doctor
Just like you ought to
Music is the doctor of my soul

These lyrics describe what I consider to be a nearly universal truth. Music doesn’t just express emotion, it transmits emotion. Listeners don’t just hear the emotional content of a song, we receive it. We feel music’s emotions vibrating throughout our minds and bodies. A slow song can relax us or makes us wax nostalgic. An upbeat song can excite and energize, and even, as Leo Sayer once sang, Make Me Feel Like Dancing.

Choosing what music to listen to, is essentially choosing the mood we want to experience. But the mood altering/enhancing effect of sounds isn’t unique to music. The gentle sound of a light rain can relax us as easily as the aggressive noise from a lawnmower can aggravate us. But nothing influences our emotions like the human voice. From the soothing whisper of a mother’s lullaby to the aggravating screams of television advertisers, human voices transmit and invoke every possible emotion.

We learn the effect of listening to voices at a young age (i.e., the mother’s lullaby), and we carry this knowledge with us throughout our lives. Vocal qualities such as tone and rhythm subtly influence  our choice of friends and lovers, role models,  music,  radio and news channels, and eventually  porn. We chose all of these based on how they inspire or effect us emotionally, and whether they inspire or invoke the emotions we want to feel.

We choose erotic audio (or audio porn) specifically to invoke sexual arousal and excitement. When we discover a voice that ‘speaks to us’, that invokes these emotions, we also feel the pleasure of the discovery, and the excitement of anticipating the greater arousal to come (no pun intended).

Conventional wisdom has, for decades, stated that men are more aroused by visual stimuli, and women are more aroused by auditory stimuli. But my experience in the erotic hypnosis community contradicts that idea. I’ve found that men and women equally enjoy listening to erotic audio files. (Niteflirt does a booming business catering to both genders.)

Of course, what ‘speaks to us’ is a very individual thing, which depends as much on the context (or the erotic fantasy) as the emotional content of the voice. Listening to a femdom fantasy, some men prefer a sultry and provocative voice, while others prefer harsh and demanding voice. Some women, listening to erotic audio, are aroused by confidence in a man’s voice, while others are aroused by his desire or mischievousness.

This, of course, is also point of erotic hypnosis: to invoke the arousal, excitement and pleasure that the listener wishes to enjoy. Hypnosis enables the listener to become more receptive, and more deeply influenced by the hypnotist’s voice. When the hypnotist speaks with a slow and relaxed pace, the listener feels that relaxation flowing into their body. And when the hypnotist speaks with arousal and excitement, the listener will feel that excitement echoing in his or her own body.

Many erotic hypnosis fans (especially those into dominance and submission) take this even further—allowing the hypnotist to take total control of the listener’s sexual arousal and excitement. But this isn’t necessary for everyone. Most listeners just want to hear the arousal and excitement in the hypnotist’s voice, so they can feel their own body respond with the same arousal and excitement.
