Some find there sensory deprivation (sd) fantasy is standing and floating through the air. We tried this with mixed success, We found that total relaxation is required and that standing was not worthy; however using a suspension harness and lifting the feet off the floor was not bad although only for a short period.

Others find that confined in a chair worked really well and has been a favourite using Max's restraint chair. Comfortable seating and a sense of immobilization adds to more chances of a person floating as they dream away in sensory deprivation. We know that total immobilization and encapsulation in a common texture enhances the total relaxation and floating experience so again leather, lycra and latex are the favourite body cover.

What is missed in looking at scenes is the understanding that in order to relax  mentally and physically there has to be a relationship with the enabler and the sensory deprivation person. That relationship evokes first of all trust. Trust is about submitting to an experience where you give the safety or enabler your confidence that you will be safe, not hurt  and at any time released. Too, the enabler has to trust that the SD person is able to safely try out the scene. Discussion in planning an experience requires a safety plan, and exit plan  with clear communication available at all times during the scene. We usually have 2 safety on hand at all times

Standing or suspended pressure points often defeat the sensory deprivation experience. Getting it just right takes time and a lot of adjustments.

This friend offered to try metal restraints as a possible escape challenge for Max . In the end the escape mechanism would have been too obvious to an audience and was never used.

Trying to relax standing requires a lot of holding points. It really did not work well but always worth a try

This person tried an escape challenge in metal but soon found it was more relaxing  as a rest position

No escape but he fell asleep which suggest for him it was a relaxing sensory experience

THis challenge is not to move at all. So fixed in being motionless does create a floating experience at least until you move then it is wide awake realization that moving is not at all comfortable. Hence the incentive not to move at all.

Never worked other than as an escape challenge
Sitting Sensory Deprivation
In order to be totally relaxed the body position must be at rest with no pressure points. The back is usually the source of pressure and sometimes pain unless support is in the right place and of course includes head placement and support as well. These images reflect on those that try different encapsulation objects and most had a great dreamy experience and all were much more relaxed after the experience.
