Emotional experience recipient (buyer)
An emotional experience recipient is someone who receives or undergoes an emotional experience. This could refer to anyone who experiences emotions, which includes all human beings as well as some animals. Emotional experiences can range from positive emotions such as happiness, love, and joy, to negative emotions such as sadness, anger, and fear. The recipient of an emotional experience may be the person who directly experiences the emotion, or it could refer to someone who indirectly experiences the emotion through observing or empathizing with another person's emotional state.
Emotional experience recipient or buyer of emotional experience is and must be the focus of experience created on emotions.market. In the same way as sensory experience recipient is the focus of the experience. Our emotional experience creators are emotionally intelligent, caring and inventive people, who come up with unique ways of processing a specific emotion like sadness or surprise.
Here at Emotions.market we refer to 32 emotions by Plutchik's Wheel - there exists different emotional classification models: Circumplex model, Vector model, Positive activation – negative activation (PANA) model, PAD emotional state model and more, yet we've selected Plutchik's wheel of emotions since it's a three-dimensional model that is a hybrid of both basic-complex categories and dimensional theories.
We also ask all creators to comply with three laws of multisensory experiences. Velasco and Obrist (2020) identified three laws of multisensory experiences
I. Multisensory experiences should be used for good and must not harm others.
II. Receivers of a multisensory experience must be treated fairly.
III. The someone and the sensory elements must be known
Here, at Emotions Market we ask that in sensory or multisensory experiences published on our website - sensory experience receiver - recipient - buyer - should always be the focus.
Every emotional experience should concentrate on the emotions of the recipient
For example, for a listening experience, buyer/recipient and seller/creator - would be experiencing different emotions. Emotional experience recipient (the person who is talking) may be experiencing emotions like aggressiveness, loathing or rage. Creator - the listener - is likely to experience different emotions like pensiveness, contempt, or even annoyance. It is important, that only buyer's emotions are being focused on.
When selecting an emotional experience, buyers will look at whether the experience is matching their needs and wants. It is therefore very important, while creating the experience listing, to think the process through, focus on the particular emotions, consider moderation rules and restrictions, and design the experience in the way, it will be appealing to buyers.
How does it work?
Emotional experience recipients come to Emotions market to improve their emotional balance. They may be after an emotional release experience or a sensory or an emotional enrichment experience. They may come with a specific idea in mind, or be curiously browsing emotions.market listings. Emotional experience buyers, while browsing, can see contact details of the creator on the emotional experience listing. Emotional experience creators outline what their experience contains, their price and ways in which they take payments. Any changes to the experience could also be discussed. Beyond this point, all communication between buyers and sellers happens in private - emotions.market is a classified ad board, not a marketplace. It is therefore important, that each emotional experience buyer takes control over their privacy themselves.
Emotional experience buyers can read FAQs, learn who are emotional experience creators, how to purchase an emotional experience, what to share and not to share with creator and how to deal with uncomfortable questions. Some buyers prefer to use encrypted messengers for communication.
Emotional experiences help recipients to improve emotional balance. By releasing trapped negative emotions, recipients of emotional experience feel better than before. Enriching life with positive emotions is also a great way of healthy emotional regulation and finding good balance. Sensory and sensual experiences distract emotional and sensory experience recipient from their problems and worries.
It is important to stress, that emotional experience creators at emotions.market, unless claimed otherwise, are not trained to help recipients with mental health problems, yet they can enlighten the life of the recipient with feelings, emotions and happiness.

Robert Plutchik's Wheel of Emotions is a popular way to classify and understand human emotions. It consists of eight primary emotions, each of which can be combined to create a total of 32 different emotional states.
One reason why this classification is useful is that it provides a simple yet comprehensive way to understand and communicate complex emotional states. By breaking down emotions into their component parts, the wheel allows individuals to identify and articulate the specific emotions they are feeling, which can be helpful in managing and regulating those emotions.
Additionally, the Plutchik wheel provides a visual representation of how emotions are related to one another. The wheel is arranged in a way that shows the relationship between different emotions, with adjacent emotions representing variations or degrees of the primary emotions.
The Plutchik wheel is also a useful tool in fields such as psychology, sociology, and anthropology, where emotions are studied and analyzed. It has been used to study emotional reactions to various stimuli and to develop therapeutic techniques for managing emotional disorders.
Overall, the Plutchik wheel is a great way to classify emotions because it is a simple yet comprehensive system that provides insight into the complex and nuanced world of human emotions.
