Hypnotic Drug Play
Disclaimer: This is about imagined effects!
This is about using hypnosis to make someone feel affected by imagined drugs. It is not about using drugs in combination with hypnosis. Please do not do anything without informing yourself of the possible risks.
Using substances tends to make a person less susceptible to hypnosis because their attention draws inwards and they no longer connect to the hypnotist. It's also highly in-advisable to use substances in a responsible (hypnotist) position.
What do we mean with drug-play?
The idea is that you apply some kind of drug to the subject and they feel an effect of that drug. This can be anything from drinking water and feeling drunk to much more complex and elaborate setups.
Because the effects are purely hypnotic, it is safe to use and will not cause any after-effects like hang-overs. It's also more broad in application and effect, doing things that are not (easily) possible in real life.
When/how do you suggest?
Roughly speaking there are three moments that matter with this. You can mix and match them as desired. It can also be nice to pretend that them not noticing something is a feature.
- Before application - Building anticipation about what it will do: "In a moment, you will drink this water. It may seem perfectly normal to you, but..."
- During application - Making them aware of the application process itself and how it may affect them. "Do you taste something funny? Do you notice how it feels?"
- After application - Describing what the effect is while they are feeling it. "By now, it will have worked through your system and you might notice how it's getting harder and harder to lift your arm."
Forms of applications
The fun stuff! How do we give the substance, drug, thing, whatever to the subject?
- Pills - In the form of little candies. Remember that nowadays there's cold medication in the form of gummies. Who knows what is in there...
- Edible paper - A different way of letting something melt in their mouth.
- Spiked drinks - Does this water taste strange to you? Adding a little bit of syrup or using vitamins that dissolve into water can be very effective for this!
- Spiked food - This is a perfectly normal muffin, I assure you.
- Scented candles - Also gives a flame to focus on.
- Spray - Water with a drop or two of essential oil can feel quite mysterious.
- Damp cloth - Like in the movies with fake chloroform!
- Injection - The back of a needle can feel quite realistic, also you can order movie-prop syringes on Etsy nowadays!
- Skin - Applying a cream, balm or bandage with "something extra" inside.
- Lipstick - A lip-balm with flavor/mint can work very well with this. Think Poison Ivy!
- Strobe light - A more sci-fi method of applying - Careful with this one!
- Biting / scratching - Like a snake, vampire or another monster/animal.
- Anti-Nausea Acupressure Wristband - Maybe there is something in those after all...
This is by no means a comprehensive list and it will hopefully serve as an inspiration.
Of course you can easily have a drug that does multiple things. Like a muscle relaxant that makes you unable to move but very itchy. Also every effect can both amplify or dull the suggested idea.
- General upper/downers - Consider how they'd affect you.
- Disorientation - Where are you?
- Sleepy / drowsy / insomnia - Fighting to stay awake or being unable to fall asleep or into trance.
- Hyperactive - More energy!
- Obedience / willingness - Everything just seems like a nice idea.
- Sensitivity - More or less sensitive, maybe in specific places.
- Anxiety / fear - Careful with this one!
- Amnesia - What does it do again?
- Muscle relaxant - Completely limp and floppy
- Frozen in place - Stiff and unable to move.
- More shy or forward - Changing or flipping certain parts of yourself.
- Losing senses - Unable to see/hear/feel, etc.
- Honesty / truth serum - What do you fantasize about?
- "Being drugged" - Feeling that something is off, your body is not normal anymore.
