Nonconsensual Hypnotic Seduction and the CIA

According to a number of sources, in declassified documents from the era of the CIA’s various MKULTRA projects, at least one CIA hypnosis instructor routinely bragged of his ability to use hypnosis in order to take advantage of girls, tricking them into having sex with him.

One of his reports includes the following:

“On 2 July 1951 approximately 1:00 p.m. the instruction began with [deleted] relating to the student some of his sexual experiences. [Deleted] stated that he had constantly used hypnotism as a means of inducing young girls to engage in sexual intercourse with him. [Deleted], a performer in [deleted] orchestra, was forced to engage in sexual intercourse with [deleted] while under the influence of hypnotism. [Deleted] stated that he first put her into a hypnotic trance and then suggested to her that he was her husband and that she desired sexual intercourse with him.

“[Deleted] further stated that many times going home on [deleted] he would use hypnotic suggestion to have a girl turn around and talk to him and suggest sexual intercourse to him and that as a result of these suggestions induced by him he spent approximately five nights a week away from home engaging in sexual intercourse.”

Now, most folks will tell you that hypnosis cannot be used to compel someone into acting against their core values but that is not what is happening here, the hypnotist used subterfuge and other means to take advantage of some folks who were likely natural high responders with undifferentiated personalities.

This does not work with just anyone you meet off the street, but unfortunately there will be a few folks who meet the criteria of being overly-trusting, gullible, somnambules, undifferentiated personalities and the like. There is also a very strong possibility that this particular instructor also exaggerated his successes in order to gain status among his peers.

Now, in the following video, you will see a stage hypnotist seemingly completely seduce a woman by hypnotizing her to sexually desire him and to have multiple orgasms . . . it seems nonconsensual as well:

However, it is very important to realize that stage hypnosis is NOT the same as non-public non-performance hypnosis.

In most cases, hypnosis would not be useful as a means to suggest that a woman have sex with one . . . UNLESS there is already a strong degree of rapport, attraction, and consent present but in those cases the hypnosis is not really the instrument of seduction but one of enhancing factors already present.

In any case, I have written extensively on this subject and have taught a number of workshops for couples and groups here in Taiwan as well as in Hong Kong, India, the United States, and elsewhere. If you wish to be placed on our mailing list for workshops, email Lorraine (via our main webpages) and she will put you on the appropriate list (be sure to tell her where you are located – those in Asia will get heads up for local workshops and those elsewhere should subscribe to my newsletter for general announcements of this type or just read this blog regularly).
