If you and another character have sex, you immediately plumb their psychic depths, whether you have the move or not. Roll+weird as normal. However, the MC chooses which questions to ask.
Plumbing psychic depths: when you have time and physical intimacy with someone--mutual intimacy like holding each other in your arms, or 1-sided intimacy like kneeling over them while they’re bound--you can reach your mind into their soul. Roll+weird. On a 10+, hold 3. On a 7–9, hold 2. Spend your hold 1 for 1 to ask their player questions:

What was your character’s lowest moment?
For what does your character crave forgiveness, and of whom?
What are your character’s secret pains?
In what ways are your character’s body and mind vulnerable to me?

On a miss, you inflict 1 harm upon your subject, ignoring armor, to no benefit.
Sorcerous puppet strings: when you have time and intimacy with someone--again, mutual or 1-sided--you can plant a command inside their mind. Roll+weird. On a 10+, hold 3. On a 7–9, hold 1. At your will, no matter the circumstances, you can spend your hold 1 for 1:

Inflict 1 harm upon them, ignoring armor.
They take -1 to the roll they’re making now.

If they fulfill your command, it counts for all of your remaining hold and they’re free. On a miss, you inflict 1 harm upon them, ignoring armor, to no benefit.
Incense: against reserve. Burn it where your subject will breathe it. While someone is breathing the smoke of incense against reserve, if you read them or use a mesmerast move on them that gives you hold, you get +1 hold--see reading a person, plumbing psychic depths, and sorcerous puppet strings.
Violation glove. Wear it. For your purposes--see plumbing psychic depths and sorcerous puppet strings--merely touching their skin with your violation glove counts as time and intimacy with them.
