Revised Trance Junkie

I revised the script for Trance Junkie today (the erotic humiliation/addiction fantasy); cleaned up the two parts with which I wasn't satisfied. Maybe I'll try rehearsing this afternoon after I exercise.

After I rehearse a few times I'll look for a test subject. With any luck, I'll be able to record in a couple of weeks and release a final version by the end of Jan.

New Release: The Artist's Brush

I am pleased to announce that I have finally, yes finally, completed The Artist's Brush.

In this recording, you're a prim and proper lady who is persuaded to model for an artist. His first painting hints of a sensualist repressed by your proper attitude. Intrigued, you sneak back to his studio one night to lay naked on a bed of furs in the soft moonlight. The artist then dips his brush in both the moonlight and your sex to paint lines of sexuality over your body; connecting every inch of your skin to your sex and awakening your ability to enjoy every caress as a sensual caress.

This is an extended foreplay fantasy that includes post-hypnotic suggestions to feel your erogenous zones expand and be more aware of your body's sensuality.

Available for the introductory price of $20 USD through Dec 30, 2010  (Regularly $25 USD).

FYI: This is the script I used to hypnotize Alexia for the Dec 1 edition of Playboy's Night Calls.

Breaking Taboo went quite well

The show went surprisingly well. When I found out that we'd be joined by a comedian, I got a bit nervous; afraid that he would be poking fun at erotic hypnosis. But Lakota Phillips was very professional and directed a serious discussion about the topic. So the discussion went smoothly and stayed [mostly] serious. I had a great time.

New Dissident Radio has posted an mp3 version of the show. You can listen to it here:

Breaking Taboo with Lakota Phillips

I will be a guest on Breaking Taboo with Lakota Phillips, live on NewDissidentRadio.com, December 20, 2010 at 4:00PM Pacific time. The topic for the evening is sexual taboos.

Also joining in the discussion will be Rev. Jeffrey Brunk, who has stoked the fire of previous discussions with notions of legalizing prostitution, and porn site expertise. Comedian Johnny Dam, host of the award winning ...DAMage Report will also be participating in the the discussion.

'Breaking Taboo' will air live on Monday, with the show available on podcast through http://www.newdissidentradio.com/breaking_taboo.html about a week after. Friends and fans can call in at 323-284-5532 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 323-284-5532 end_of_the_skype_highlighting or through Skype at NDRadio.

Update on The Artist's Brush

I finally recorded a session that meets my quality standards. I'm editing/mastering the recording now. I'm aiming to release The Artist's Brush next week; between the 20th and the 25th.

Discrete billing/Visa gift cards and paypal

This question doesn't come up too often. (Though maybe it would if I had more traffic.)

Yesterday a potential customer emailed me with a problem. She didn't want her name associated with purchasing my recordings. So she tried to make the purchase with an anonymous Visa gift card. But Paypal, my payment processor, rejected the card and she didn't know why.

So I did some digging and found this site that says Paypal will only accept gift cards with a name and address listed in Visa's database. It's a security measure to verify that you're the real owner of the card:

That, unfortunately, doesn't help the people who want to make anonymous purchases to protect their reputation.

I can sympathize with the need for discretion. So I set up discrete credit card billing. Credit card statements will show "HDMP3" as the merchant, which would be totally meaningless to anyone who hadn't previously bought one of my recordings.  

And of course, I never share my customer lists.

Replacement policy for lost files

Since Thanksgiving, Five different people have requested replacement files after hard drive crashes. This is highly unusual. I normally only receive one request per year. It's a bit disturbing. I haven't seen this many hard drive crashes since the early 90s. It's even more disturbing that people aren't backing up their files.

Well, my policy is to allow one replacement download per purchase. (Not that I really keep track, but you should. Just like you should be backing up your files.) But I must be able to verify the original purchase. That means you must make the request with the same email you used when making the original purchase.

Universal Wish List buttons.

I added Universal Wish List buttons to my web site. So now anyone can add the recordings on my web site to their Amazon.com wish list or gift registry.

I know most of my customers are a shy about their interest in erotic hypnosis and would prefer to keep this interest more private than their wish lists. But judging from my appearance on Playboy's Night Calls last week, I think we have a chance to build more of a mainstream acceptance.

So if you're not too shy about letting friends and family know what you want, add Hypnotic Dreams' mp3s to you wish lists. The exposure will help build awareness as well as acceptance.

changed the blog url

I changed the url for this blog today. I did this to be consistent with the screen name I use on many web sites: Mesmer7.

Playboy Radio was a lot of fun

Night Calls was a lot of fun tonight. We wanted to give a demonstration of how effective my recordings are. You can't conduct an entire hypnotic induction over the air. But we arranged for me to hypnotize one of the ladies before the show. Alexia, the show's associate producer called me about an hour before the show, and I recited the script for The Artist's Brush.

This script is intensely erotic, and includes several suggestions to increase the sensitivity of the skin. "Every caress, anywhere on the body, is a sexual caress." Then she joined Christy Canyon and Nicki Hunter on the air. The ladies had a ball teasing Alexia with light touches and simply blowing on her skin.  I'm told she was shaking in her panties from the intensity of the arousal.

Oh, how I wish I could have been in the studio!

With any luck, I'll have The Artist's Brush completed in just a couple of weeks.
