no hypnotism is all about making it OK to act the fool
think about it
You watch 25 of those hynotism orgasm things. . . do you see one finger slip inside a cavity? One obvious boner? One shirt ripped off?
Because restraint is still operating for those people. The hypnotist has only given them a BIT of leeway to act like a jackass.

One such example is a video I've seen for my Forensic Psychology class that showed a high-hypnotizable woman being operated upon with no anasthesia while she was hypnotized. She was instructed that instead of registering pain, she was raise and lower the the pitch of some sounds she was told to make. The more intense the pain, the higher the pitch of her voice. When she was taken out of it after the surgery, she had no memory of any painful experiences.
I'm not saying these women aren't faking, just that it is possible that some are actually experiencing orgasm."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal

We need a panty check to verify orgasm.

You can get orgasms in your sleep with no physical stimulation. Everyone knows that. Hypnotism isn't far away from that.

But seriously, stage hypnotism has so little in common with clinical hypnotism that it's an insult to associate them.

I'm not doubting you, I'm just curious.

In reality, the only impressive part about studies of hypnosis during surgery is that the subjects healed slightly faster. There was a momentary uproar about this until someone pointed out that anasthesia slows down healing time.
The best one can hope for with hypnosis-based blocking of pain is that it can be used to minimize the amount of anasthesia needed.
The point of the story was just to show that hypnosis acts on a much higher level of processing than some people realize.
Mr. Cache -- I agree with you wholeheartedly here. Stage hypnosis is more like an excercise in showing the placebo effect than any real hypnotic suggestion going on. Kind of like speaking "in tongues" during religious ceremonies or out-of-body experiences (assuming a lack of psychoactive drugs)."No. Listen to me because I know what I'm talking about here." -- Hannibal
