I suspect that a hand growing out of one's forehead can be quite mesmerizing.

When I'm at an exhibition where a hypnotist is performing with volunteers, I like to shout, "Make him bark like a chicken!" :cheese:

As a retired hypnotist myself I can tell you that the laser eye beam thing is a total pain in the ass. You can never go to the movies and people are always bugging you to help them find stuff they've lost in the dark.

Why is it always a guy hypnotizing a girl?

@RobK: Because back in the '50s things were still as they should be and men were in charge of the money. The wife was, if she proved worthy, given a weekly stipend with which to purchase incidentals that may be needed for the house. So, it would have made no sense to advertise to women 'cause they didn't have any money!

I like the part "Written so you can understand it!" Does that mean people couldn't understanding? If it was simple, why didn't everyone do it?

Girls and women are naturally hypnotizing for a guy and don't need a book course to teach them how.
Especially au natural.

Wasn't it easier in the 50's to just beat/abuse your wives/women into submission ??? 🐛

I don't know, BD, I'm ancient but wasn't old enough in the 50's to have a 'woman' let along a wife! 😛

The way it was advertised is interesting, now we know so much more I think. However it is such a useful phenomena.
