Look into my thighs… not around the thighs
Hypnotist teaches lapdancers
As reported in The Sun, a hypnotist in England is teaching dancers some elementary hypnotic techniques to help them get more money out of their patrons.
A HYPNOTIST is helping lapdancers lure men into spending more money on their sexy shows.
Entertainer Grant Saunders was called in by club boss Jason Armitage as takings slumped in the recession.
Grant, 34, said: "They will use a technique called anchoring. The man's subconscious mind becomes open to suggestion as a dancer speaks to him and gives him a little touch on the shoulder or the knee.
But no one will be put in a trance, in the style of Little Britain hypnotist Kenny Craig – played by Matt Lucas – who used the line: "Look into my eyes, look into my eyes, not around the eyes."
Commentary: The Sun is Britain's answer to the New York Post, both being rather salacious news organizations with a focus on the sensational. Here, the sensational involves the sexual and domination stereotype surrounding hypnosis and exotic dancers using that stereotype, at least the blaring headline: one might be led to think of dancers using mysterious hypnotic techniques in their dances to entrance and enthrall their audience into showering them with money.
However, the accompanying article itself is pretty straightforward about the technique (anchoring) used and its application, a well-known technique for hypnotists and in the arsenal of 'seduction masters' and hypnotic 'pick-up' artists.
