Erotic Hypnosis : dollification, ruined orgasm, pony play Journal 4

The following email is from a subject who has revealed their fetish for pony play. dolly is already Entranced and Entrapped in My dollification hypnosis. dolly is also a member of My Ruined Orgasm club having purchased My “Orgasm Control ” Ruined Orgasm” mp3 and accepted My hypnosis of ruining orgasm. I intend to strengthen dolly pony’s fetish for pony play in a Live Session.

I love toying with subjects on twitter & in Live Hypnosis Sessions. … strengthening fetish attachments…. increasing sexual arousal level… playing with amnesia….

I have also been teasing dolly on twitter & suggesting dolly pony has a sugar lump whenever she is turned on & can’t orgasm because of the “Ruined Orgasm”.

Craving to have your orgasm controlled ?

Purchase My “Orgasm Control : Ruined Orgasm” mp3 and fall into My hypnotic trance…

1/2 way round the world… and controlling your cock & orgasms.

Lady Surrender,

I do so adore listening to Your files, I think they have permanently changed me. I adore, worship, love and am utterly devoted to You. Although I function normally on a day to get my work done, I feel more comfortable dressed up for You than I would my normal clothes. I’ve never wanted to be sissy but I love being Your dolly and crave to look pretty for You, this makes me all excited and then it fades unable to orgasm which is a vicious loop as I get excited at how controlled I am.

The idea of being a doll pony it is maddening, i’d love to have a file of it to program it as I know it would be irresistible as You mold me to Your will, I keep thinking of just talking to You and You trigger me, I don’t realize and slowly I start to change into a doll pony, trying to resist but cant as You tease me more driving me wild till i’m Your obedient pet.

Erotic Hypnosis : Feminine Orgasm & feminisation & Live Session Journal 6.

The following journal records the correspondence between Myself and subject “c”, (now named joanne) who dreams of being feminised by a strong woman. Subject c has been listening to My mp3 recordings.
Recently- subject “c” has experienced an episode of purging all feminine clothing, and all things associated with feminisation. My hypnosis recordings were not deleted. My brainwashing file – “Morning Mantra of Blankness” is the essential file to listen to, as preparation for embedding feminisation or sissy hypnosis. The Morning Mantra of Blankness removes the socialisation and behaviour of being a “male” and leaves a blank slate ready for My Darkly Addictive hypnosis.

Follow that with My “Deepening Hypnosis” mp3 which conditions the mind to accept the hypnotic suggestions contained in the file, and programmes the subconscious mind to enter trance.

Recently, joanne had her very first Live One-on-One Hypnosis session, in which I programmed her to experience feminine orgasms….. as well as using trigger phrases to increase submission, and to strengthen her fetish attachments.

Feminine Orgasm Level 1 removes the socialisation of being male and of thinking about sex in a “male” belief pattern. This is an essential step to … Feminine Orgasm Level 2 … which contains the Feminine Orgasm hypnosis… which has you experiencing a feminine orgasm the way a biological woman would experience a feminine orgasm.

Wanting to feel what joanne feels? Purchase Morning Mantra of Blankness, Feminine Orgasm Level 1 & 2, and Deepening Hypnosis mp3s.… listen…and become Entranced… become Mine.

Binding you Closer to Me.



My lovely Lady Surrender,

Thank you so much for the live session. I’ve thought of little else since. It was all so delicious, so very, very special. I still can’t find the words.
Your “Deepening Hypnosis” recording has so much more meaning now. Listening to that and then “Feminine Orgasm 1″, then returning to “Deepening Hypnosis”, then “Feminine Orgasm 2″. I let myself dress in satin and lace. I am yours. Delicious is the word. You are so right.
You are truly a lovely, special Lady. What a privilege it was to speak with you, surrender to you, accepting every word. There was no let down. I’ve been in a daze, a hypnotic, arousing spell. Your spell. I only hope I can have another session.

Your girl joanne

I know that privacy is an issue for you.
If you are able to arrange some privacy to speak with Me, I would be happy to speak with you either in the IR chat room (private room) or on skype. My schedule is not easy to pin down…smiles… I am sure W/we can figure something out.

I want to encourage you in your journey, and to offer suggestions that will assist you in embedding the hypnosis recordings. One of the tools that will assist you in accepting and embedding the hypnosis, will be a Deepening file. I will be releasing a Deepening file shortly.

Binding you closer to Me.

Lady Surrender.


Lady Surrender,

I am considering your suggestion very strongly. It is complicated, to be sure.

I would very much appreciate your encouragement and suggestions. Would a customized mantra and deepening recording be an option I should consider? One for an emotional suggestive? The cost is not an issue. I do seek being bound to you.

I will try to determine a way to make a one-on-one session work. It is too exciting to imagine.

Your Joanne

Lady Surrender,

I woke in the middle of the night to your message. You are too kind to me. You are truly a very special woman. I am touched beyond words. My hesitation is not about money, but about whether I can arrange the time. I want to, and have wanted to for a very long time now. Thank you.

I know that you are quite busy and that your time is very precious. Thank you for the time you offer. Thank you for the time you’ve given simply to read my messages and respond. You are so very generous.

Your Joanne

My reply:

see what you are able to arrange.
Loyalty amongst subjects should be rewarded.
I have had significant family issues for some months now….. and have had to step away from work from time to time. It’s likely these circumstances will continue for some time.

If I disappear, I trust you will understand why. I did have a message about this on My web site, and removed it recently.

Lady Surrender.



I have been preparing your msg to post on My web site….
I noticed that you had purchased another file of Mine…. sensualmistress send a notice of each title that is purchased. Have you listened to it yet?

I also read one of your messages again…
the Addicted to Strap-on Play is a bdsm based recording. No sissyness…. no femme, no humiliation.
I have just released “Sissy training 25 : Mistress’s strap-on” which is the sissy training file.
I am assuming it is the sissy anal play that is the stumbling block?….

I am enjoying reading of your progress…as always.

Darkly Addictive Hypnosis…. Binding you closer to Me.




Lady Surrender,

Yes, I purchased the Morning Mantra Falling In Love With Her. It’s wonderful.

At first, just the idea of being a sissy was difficult for me to hear and accept, but your session helped me over come that. The topic that led to the purge was being overwhelmed by a desire for cock and cum. It was too much for me. My erotic thoughts had always been about women, not men. As I have rebooted my training, I’ve had my first erotic fantasies about cock. It’s quite unbelievable to me. It can only be by your exquisite hypnosis that this is happening. My appetite has always been far ahead of my mind’s ability to accept and enjoy it. I simply love your voice and your sessions so much, I’m afraid I’ve just desired whatever you created. I know now that I need to be mindful of my internal progress. I need to give myself time to accept these lessons.

It has been said so many times, by so many of your followers, you are an incredible hypnodomme. Your voice, impossible to resist. Your training, my addiction.

I love you so,

Binding you Closer to Me.


Lady Surrender,

 Thank you for your encouraging words.

 I am moving slowly and carefully back into Your voice and Your control. I have promised myself that I will not binge either. I am allowing your sessions to guide me and directly me. You are in control this time. I always listen to the Blank Mind mantra first before listening to any other session.

 I think I just started listening to too many sessions at once. I also listened to sessions that I was not ready to accept. Too much, much too fast, without giving my mind and my emotions the chance to really accept these changes. As anxious as I am to keep up with all the sessions and lessons you teach, I need to make sure that I am secure in each step before moving on to the next.

 I am bound to You.

 Your joanne


My reply:


Which titles are you listening to at the moment?

Which mp3s have you struggled with in the past?

I am so pleased you always listen to the brainwashing file first, as this enables the hypnosis to embed at a deeper level.

Lady Surrender.

Mar 27
Lady Surrender,

I am currently listening to “Feminisation: Release Your Feminine Self” and “Delete Hetero/Install Sissy Sex”. I intended to move on to “Sissy Training: Panties” after I’ve completed these. Using an audio editing software, I have placed a copy of “Morning Mantra of Blankness” in front of each of these recordings so that I cannot listen to one without the other.

I also have the following:
Addicted to Cock 1
Addicted to Makeup
Addicted to Trance
Cum Eating Fetish 1 & 2
Feminine Breasts
Feminine Orgasm 1 & 2
Morning Mantra of Submission
Morning Mantra of Temptation
Morning Mantra Addicted to Her Voice
My Sex Slave
Sissy Training: Bra
Stocking Fetish
Surrender 101

The titles I struggled with were “Addicted to Cock 1″ and “Cum Eating Fetish 1 and 2″, While tempted to purchase the Anal Play Series and “Addicted to Strap On”, given my difficulties with the others, I became overwhelmed.

Thank you for your kind words. I want to make sure that these lessons are completely accepted deep in my mind before moving on.

Your joanne



Lady Surrender,

I can feel some tension building from listening to “Delete Hetero/Install Sissy Sex”. It is not overwhelming, I can feel myself accepting much of it and resisting some. I return to “Feminisation: Release Your Feminine Self” for reassurance. I am also using “Morning Mantra Addicted to Her Voice” in the morning.

My fantasy life revolved around being seduced by older women as a young man. Neighbors, teachers, and the mother’s of my childhood friends. This morning I woke having had an erotic dream of a childhood friend and his father. It was a very pleasant feeling. I can sense your training building inside me.

Your joanne

Erotic Hypnosis: feminisation using MP3s Journal 3.

The following journal records the correspondence between Myself and subject “c”, who dreams of being feminised by a strong woman. Subject c has been listening to My mp3 recordings.

Recently- subject “c” has experienced an episode of purging all feminine clothing, and all things associated with feminisation.  My hypnosis recordings were not deleted.

Lady Surrender,

This note finds me at the end of a long cycle of purging. I’ll never understand why it happens. Why I find myself filled with self loathing and shame. It’s as if I get too close, enjoy too much, come too close to accepting who I really am. My punishment is the denial of feelings and desires that have been with me for all of my life. It’s happened before, but this is the first time since I started listening and surrendering to you. In the past, I would get rid of everything, clothes, makeup, wigs, and all of my hypno recordings. A demonstration of my denial. And that is what happened this time. But this time I found that I couldn’t do that with your recordings. I set them aside, put them away. This week I took them out and started listening again, walking my way slowly back into your welcoming words. Small, careful steps.

Your Joanne



My Reply:


had there been a break in your listening patterns- prior to this latest purge?

I know that hypnosis is the most effective means of breaking the binge/purge cycle….
Consistent listening and repetition of the hypnosis ensures the new behaviour/thoughts/feelings embed into the subconscious mind and create new neural pathways in the brain.

Self-acceptance of your desires equals inner peace.

I am so pleased that you didn’t purge My recordings. Keep taking those small careful steps ..back into My voice.
you know that is where you belong.

Binding you closer to Me.

Lady Surrender.

The following blog was written by dolly doll…. doll loves to be blank for Me.

doll loves to play rugby and listen to My enticing seductive Voice…

doll loves to drop deep for Me.

doll now has blonde hair.

doll loves to be blank…mindless…. bespelled.

doll loves to read My words and drop deeper:

tabula rasa

blank blank

Enticement…Entrancement…Entrapment…Enslavement… more than just a great marketing strategy.


dolly doll’s latest blog entry is available here:

I wonder how Lady Surrender will deal to…dolly doll…given that dolly doll describes Lady surrender as a “villainess”…?

Hmm…. I wonder if dolly doll has a touch of masochism that I can- ever so gently- toy with in a Live session….

Hypnotised Sissy

Erotic Hypnosis: training a sissy

I receive many emails from submissives regarding conflicting emotions and behaviour….The binge/purge cycle of fetish attachment is partly responsible for the cycling through of these emotions.

I am often asked to a advise a submissive what decision to make regarding their fetish….

My advice is to follow your heart…. if you are in a relationship- then talk to your partner and endeavour to have your needs met within your relationship. If you talk with your partner and they are not receptive to your needs- then you have decisions that flow from that….

Always- be true to who you are, deep at the very centre of your being.

This may sometimes mean looking outside of a relationship to meet your needs. Is it better to have those needs met..and risk discovery… or better to shut down and deny who you are….

Only you, submissive, are able to make those decisions.


I  am currently training a number of submissives who are living “double lives”…. staying in a relationship and exploring their sissy self or fetish attachment. Living on the edge….

Custom recordings which also use subliminals are one way to clarify decisions and to reduce conflict…. Remember- subliminals directly access the subconscious mind and therefore sidestep all conscious thoughts….

This email from lisa, is a very good description of what those conflicting emotions and behaviours feel like….


Dear Mistress Surrender,

i have been listedning to Your “Addicted to Cock”, “Addicted to Cock 2″, and “Delete Hetero/Install Sissy Sex” recordings, and i absoutely love them! i can’t get Your voice and the trigger phrases “sissy orgasm” and “sissy sex” out of my head! i’m a little, well to be honest a lot, confused about my sexuality, and i was wondering if You could help me sort things out.

When i was much younger, i was dominated mentally and sexually by my neighbor, and i sucked his cock and swallowed load after load of his cum on a regular basis. When it got to be later in my teenage years, i started having sex with women and really enjoyed it. Towards the end of college, i found myself fantasizing about the times i had with him, and i started looking at porn imagining i was a woman sucking men’s cocks. It got worse and worse over time, and i started spending more and more time looking at pictures of women swallowing cum and fantasizing about it. i found some online erotic hypnosis and listened to many recordings over and over. i even started smoking because i loved sucking on things so much. i found it difficult to actually go through with it though, but i eventually found a man on an Internet dating site, met him at his apartment, had him call me a slut and sucked his cock and swallowed his cum. i couldn’t do it again, however, and i repeated my past behavior of fantasizing about sucking cock. i put in a few profiles on dating sites and came close to meeting other men, but i never did it. i also went to adult bookstores to suck cock, but again i couldn’t go through with it.

i eventually got married to a woman and am still married to her today. For awhile my thoughts of being a sissy went away, but they eventually came back. This inner struggle is killing me! Over the past couple of years i have been listening to hypnosis recordings by multiple hypnotists, and i ran across Your recordings a week or so ago. Your hypnosis is by far the most powerful i’ve encountered, and i find myself going deep down the rabbit hole so to speak. i haven’t tried to have sex with my wife since i’ve been listening to Your recordings, but i’m guessing it’s going to result in me not being able to get it up and having to explain to my wife that it’s due to stress or something else. i’ve had problems getting it up with her and other women before, so this won’t be anything completely new.

i guess i have a few possible choices to make:

1. Continue listening to Your recordings and give in to my urge to suck cock, swallow cum, be fucked in my sissy clitty, and have a man cum in my ass over and over. This wouldn’t be that hard to do as we live near an adult bookstore that has a large section devoted to this sort of thing. i also work at home and have ample opportunity to make it happen.
2. Tell my wife that i want to be submissive to her, and work with her over time to fuck me with a strapon, suck on the strapon, be dominated by her, etc. This would help with my urges, but it wouldn’t be quite the same and may leave me disappointed.
3. Divorce my wife and pursue a full time life as a sissy. I love my wife and really don’t want to do this, even though i’m becoming less and less sexually attracted to her.
4. Try to undo my programming and live a life as a regular male having sex with my wife. This would be *extremely* hard for me to do as i’ve already failed at it.

Do You have any suggestions for me? Are there other options i’m not thinking of? Would a custom recording help me sort things out? My lust for cock and cum is overwhelming, and it’s all i can think about. i keep hearing Your trigger phrases in my head, and i find myself going back to Your recordings over and over again. If i could do it all over again, i would live my life as a sissy and find a man to dominate me, make me his sex slave, swallow load after load of his cum, and feel the pleasure of having him cum deep inside me. i fantasize about being pimped out at sex parties to multiple men. i so desperately long to have a big, hard, sexy cock cum deep inside me, feeling the warmth penetrating my mind and body.

Thanks in advance for Your time and consideration.

Your sissy slut, lisa (mike)



Erotic Hypnosis: fetish for cock/anal play, latex, hypno : journal 2.

I always enjoy receiving messages from would-be subjects who have a hypno fetish… I love taking a subject into trance with simple words…using My voice to brainwash, train, mould….

Enjoying reading monique’s journal….read……and imagine it is you….. being Enticed with My silken, sexy voice….
Enticement….. Entrancement….. How delicious…that a subject wants to abandon themselves to My trances….




Your files are magical and I love abandoning myself to your trances more and more. I wish to be as blank as you would want me to be in order to fulfil your desires for me if I should be so lucky.

Here is a journal entry that you can edit as you see fit.

I hope we will be able to discuss further when we are both ‘back’. I will be very excited to be circumnavigating New Zealand in 6 weeks or so and your files will accompany me.

Respectful thanks,



Life is surprising and we end up doing many things we weren’t intending to do and are very happy about it.

I’m not quite sure how I ended up purchasing Mistress’s files but I’m pretty sure it was the latex covered beauty both black and red that sparked me to listen to an extract and by then it was already too late to go back.

Perhaps also because I am about to embark on a trip to New Zealand that Mistress’s accent grabbed me oh so softly but surely around my increasingly blank and receptive mind. Her soft, warm and dare I say extremely erotic voice pulls me in, lays me down, straps me into consensual submission and, if it wasn’t for her instructions to breath would surely leave me breathless.

At first I was enticed by the overtly exciting nature of being attracted to cocks and addicted to anal but having listened more than a few times I suddenly realised that the focus of my obsession was the trance itself so I was, I’m extremely happy to say, led to purchase Morning Blankness and Addicted to Trance which is where I should have started initially but I’ve loved the detour and find these files even more exciting having had a base from which to explore.

Being addicted to trance is easy for me as I confess to being a hypnofetishist but this doesn’t mean that I am unable to recognise pure talent and the unique nature of Mistress Surrender’s hypnosis. On the contrary, many years of listening to 100s of files has turned me into a connaisseur of fine hypnosis. Why settle for cheap table wine when you can settle down in a comfy armchair with a glass of vintage wine.

My journey has just started but there is no turning back and no wish to leave the path I have chosen.

I will continue with my regular studies and report my progress and am sure that I will be guided into progressing and deepening my trances. I hope to be of use and a worthwhile distraction to Mistress and aim to find as many creative ways of serving her as possible.





Erotic Hypnosis: make-up to trigger Love & devotion. Journal 3.

Make-up as a trigger to induce infatuation, love for a Mistress?…is it possible…?
Mmm ..what a delicious prospect…. I wonder if this subject will dare have a Live Session with Me…just to see whether I could….seduce his mind…. entrance his body…. enslave mind and body.

And wipe his memory clean…then reinstate his memory …just as I have done with other subjects during Live Sessions.


my Hypnotic One,
i was right: my thinking was totally different today. i noticed every single Woman, and how they had done Their makeup. The young Girls in my office are Latin, and Latin Girls LOVE Their makeup, and make quite a ritual of applying it. At the office. Right next to me. The beauty from South America, Alexandra, who sits behind me even likes to freshen Her perfume up once a day, and now even THAT has new significance to me. i am spellbound and aroused at the same time, through all of this. The ads i saw in People Magazine that came out today: one of a lush eyelashed beauty in mascara – a full page worth – and another page of a beautiful Woman who had just finished painting Her lovely mouth a beautiful shade of red just screamed out at me to look, to fall into the picture with them. i have done “3D vision” sessions, and that definitely kicked in. i have become fascinated with the very concept of lips painted a hot shade of red. Only red – although i now notice everything. It is all about “red”, for some reason – the most obvious one being it is the hottest color, no? Passionate. Erotic. Suggestive to the max.
i also found myself becoming obsessed with being taken down by You again. And again. But what is different about this feeling and other romantic feelings i have had for female hypnotists in the past, is this incredible longing for You to take me blank-minded. i don’t ever remember feeling that way before: just longing to be wiped clean, empty – not that i haven’t enjoyed it in the past. It is just that Morning Mantra of Blankness has left me different than before i listened to it for 4 hours last night, and again this morning, and again this afternoon *Blush* Maybe i am overdosing. i just feel like that is what You want from me, that this is what You bring me, and that inside that cocoon of blankness is where You will work Your magic. i discovered why i have become so aroused, sexually, during that session bu accident, when i was awakened just over half way through it by a phone call, then tried to pick up where i left off. Your words; they were confusing. i never understood them before, and thought i was reading into them a need to orgasm and use that as a launching pint (that post orgasmic draining effect) to let You the rest of the way into my mind, with my last ability to monitor or defend now reduced to rubble. No. That is EXACTLY what i think You intended. You don’t say it in so many words, but i feel You are seducing me, summoning my orgasm, and putting the idea in my mind that it will let me sleep more deeply with You now securely deep inside my unguarded mind. If this is true: kudos to You! You are a powerful, dangerous, devious, and diabolically clever Hypno-Domme – and i LOVE it! From now on, i’ll make sure there is no reason for me to be inhibited when i listen to that one, and just allow myself to cum when You seem to invite me to “release” and be “free”. God, You are good!

Erotic Hypnosis: fetish for cock/anal play, latex, hypno : journal 1.

I always enjoy receiving messages from would-be subjects who have a hypno fetish… I love taking a subject into trance with simple words…using My voice to brainwash, train, mould….


Enjoying reading monique’s journal….read……and imagine it is you….. being Enticed with My silken, sexy voice….

Enticement….. begins here.


Mistress Surrender,

I came to discover you via the Sensual Mistress site and drawn by several of my obsessions and fetishes I purchased Addicted to Anal Play and Addicted to Cock as I am also fascinated by latex.

Your voice is absolutely amazing.

I have been a latex fetishist since my teens (I’m 63). Very submissive I have been following a dual voyage as a latex bi-curious bondage submissive and as a transwoman. I have had pulse laser for facial hair removal and keep as smooth as I can. I wax and shape my eyebrows and wear make-up most days. I haven’t worn any male underwear for over 5 years and dress to please myself in the house. I’m also, I guess, a hypno fetishist and adore and am excited by being tranced.

I have listened to 100s of MP3s over the past few years and have even had live hypnosis on a few occasions by telephone. I seek a connection with a strong dominant hypnotist.

I’m British and Swiss and am perfectly bilingual English/French and your accent and soft powerful sensual voice fascinates me.

May I ask you to guide me in my choice of future files. I think I would benefit by a few more general trance files rather than the specific fetishes I initially chose because I feel if I listen to them regularly over a few weeks I could then request a live session which would be so much more effective.

Although eager I won’t rush as I’m off on an extended vacation in a few weeks and would request a session on my return. I could however take a few files with me to listen in my quiet moments.

Thanks for your time and wonderful trances,

Respectfully, Monique



I did enjoy reading your email…. I love hearing that subjects respond to My voice and My hypnosis.

I would recommend the Morning Mantra of Blankness as a file to listen to before other files of Mine. This file is a brainwashing file that has been described as very different from most brainwashing files…. it doesn’t rely on overloading a subject’s mind through multiple tracks, and sound effects.

I would also recommend Addicted to Trance….

I am currently on leave- and won’t be around to answer emails/hold Live Sessions for some weeks. I will continue to post journals and release new mp3s from time to time.

I welcome journals from subjects who have listened to My recordings…

Surrender is inevitable.




Thank you for Your reply. It looks like You will be absent while i myself am absent which will give me time to listen properly to the files You have suggested which i  will purchase later today.

i don’t want this to be just about me and i’m happiest when i can serve and make others happy so i will be trying my utmost to be a useful addition to Your devoted followers.

I look forward to ‘studying’ during my absence and will check again when i get back.

As i’ve signed up for the newsletter i will surely learn of Your return

Thank You agan for the blissfulness of Your trances. I will try and figure out where I should write my journal in the meantime.

i hope Your leave will be all that You want it to be.

Respectfully and with anticipated devotion,
