Spent a lovely day today at FetFest 2013 hypnotizing people, catching up with friends, and generally enjoying the atmosphere.
For those of you unfamiliar, FetFest is an annual gathering of kinksters sponsored by the people at FetLife. It takes place at a private campground in northern Maryland (the same location as Dark Odyssey: Fusion for those who've been), and it's basically a celebration of all things kinky. Like Fusion, the camp is organized into villages for some of the more popular interests. There is a Rope Village, a Bouncey Place (for littles), a Goddess Village (for those who revere women), etc. And there is a Hypnosis Village, which this year is organized by the lovely and energetic LuckyAlbatross.
One of the features of Hypnosis Village is the Hypno-Booth. There is generally always at least one hypnotist in attendance giving trances to anyone who is interested. We take requests, or people can spin the Wheel of Hypnosis to choose from a variety of fun and sexy suggestions. Today the Booth was staffed by HypnoGuru, Joyful007, LeeAllure, HypnoTodd, and myself. My friends MrDream and ZanyM were also nearby, and it was great to see them again. I also got to finally meet up in person with Darkside007, a long-time member of the MC Forum, and spend some time with him.
A highlight of the day for me was attending ZanyM's kinesthetic trancing class. Zany demonstrated several silent inductions, using only physical rapport built through touch and intent to induce trance and bring the person back out. LeeAllure and I practiced on each other, and later Zany worked her magic on me as well. Zany's style is intense and moving; I blissed out and didn't really want to come back right away.
Tomorrow at 10:30am I'll be presenting Kinky Human Tricks in the Hypnosis Village. We'll have a book signing after the class and then I'll be in the Hypno Booth again, trancing people for fun and pleasure.
