No, All Hypnosis is Not Self-Hypnosis

I’ve read many books and articles that repeat this phrase ‘all hypnosis is self-hypnosis’. But this actually contradicts their definition of ‘self-hypnosis’.

Consensual Non-Consent in Hypnotic Domination

“Safe, Sane, Consensual” is an important philosophy in BDSM relationships. It’s important because it defines the difference between healthy and unhealthy activities. Consent also defines the difference between legal and illegal acts. But the idea non-consensual sex excites people. And this is especially true of people exploring hypnotic domination.
