Frequently Asked Questions about Directed Erotic Visualisation (Visualization) or DEV.
Q. What is DEV?
A. A form of words, a protocol that aids relaxation and the capacity to fantasize in terms of sensory experience. The technique helps create a suggestible frame of mind or slightly altered state of consciousness in which a subjective reality can be evoked. Instead of the mind freewheeling in fantasy or daydreaming; the protocol ‘suggests’ sensations, emotions and physical experiences that the mind can focus on and enhance. The protocols use erotic and sexually charged imagery and vocabulary to build a subjective sexual experience with a view to generating an orgasmic response.
We consider that it is NOT what many think of as hypnosis. There is no ‘trance’ or loss of consciousness; at all times listening participants or Collaborators remain awake, though relaxed and fully aware of the process.
Q. Why ‘Directed’?
A. Left to itself a relaxed and de stressed mind will wander, freewheel and have pleasant unfocussed daydreams, frequently drifting off to sleep. The ‘Directions’ are verbal prompts, a plot or storyline if you will, to guide the Collaborator into a sexually charged and erotic fantasy where they experience very real physical sensations. The protocol is crafted to lead the participant through a series of experiences that will entice, excite, arouse and ultimately bring them to orgasm.
Q. Why Visualisation (Visualization)?
A. The technique of visualisation is very well known. Positive thought or thinking is valuable in health and psychological treatments as well as ‘self-help’ and weight loss. The impact of the mind on the physical responses and wellbeing of the body, while not completely understood is well recognised as a useful compliment to medical interventions. DEV harnesses this powerful capacity of the mind to ‘spoof’ the senses and create a subjective reality of physical sensation, touch, taste, smell, pain and pleasure.
Q. What use is DEV?
A. You might say ‘None at all’. It is an entertainment. As created and produced by Essemoh Teepee (SMOTP) it does not pretend to be anything other than a pleasurable experience, an enhancement to erotic writing. However, from the feedback received there are some benefits as identified by individuals: enhanced sensuality, self-esteem and capacity to experience orgasms when having sex.
Q. Does DEV work?
A. YES. However, like all things it is not that simple. Every human being is different and reacts in a unique way to similar stimuli.
The rough statistical study is ongoing into the responses received to the first four DEV Audio Experiences made available through Literotica.com, but the feedback suggests that responses are slightly different between Women and Men. (Nothing really new there!)
Around one third of Women experience very satisfying orgasms while around another third become aroused, finding the experience very enjoyable. About a third relax and become de stressed but do not get sexually involved.
It would seem that Men are much more prepared to share their experiences and the volume of feedback is much greater (Boys will talk!)
However, the strength of reaction is different to that for Women. Roughly one fifth achieve an orgasm (dry or ejaculation) while around one half become pleasurably aroused. The rest are stirred but not shaken!
Q. Can I feel things in DEV?
A. participants or Collaborators (the experience during DEV is a collaboration between the listener and the Narrator/Narratrix.) report that they can actually feel the sensation of sexual activity during the experience. Oral, penetrative and anal sex are all capable of being felt and experienced. Sensations associated with light BDSM, such as caning, flogging, binding and electro stimulation are also capable of being recreated in realistic sensory detail during a DEV Experience.

From the very beginning of the audio, the mood is set. The greetings, the instructions, and pure lust in his voice. Mentally visualize him standing over you while he is talking to you. The change up in toys is a nice surprise and helpful to stimulate the pleasure spots. The timing and pacing is perfect. Well done, Mister Hands.
