This fucking video.
I'm sorry you don't get to see his face in this fucking video. It can't be helped. But trust me and the handful of people we have allowed to see the raw footage from this hypnosis session when we say that Status brings so much light and magic and the video is transcendent.
But this blurred-face version does at least capture the broad outline of what the rope induction and the rope bondage mantra that I used here actually *do*. It's pretty wonderful stuff.
Last night (I'm writing this on December 23rd, 2022), Status put me under and brought me back, vividly, to this session (which I've been combing through as part of the blurring process for much of the last few days). It was delicious. He's an incredibly talented hypnotist in his own right. But one thing that came out of that brief session was that I realized that (in metaphor, at least) the rope in this video was like living connective tissue between us. This was particularly true during the rope mantra part of the session. I want to elaborate on that, but at the moment I can't. I can't imagine, though, that this epiphany won't inform my rope bondage in the future.
Thank you, Trophyboy.
