Captain Mike is a relatively new face in the scene, but he’s an old hand at the art of language. With a BA in English and an MA in Writing, he’s a definite word nerd who’s always ready to discuss intricacies and inanities of language. His interests are more varied than mere vernacular, however, and he can often be engaged in discussions about history, piracy, polyamory, general kink, film, stories, and costuming. Captain Mike is readily identified by his naturally curly hair and propensity for outrageous claims.



Carneggy has been hypnotizing folks for a variety of recreational purposes for over 25 years, after a friend said, “Hey, let me show you guys this neat thing I learned!” He’s been active in a long succession of hypnosis chat rooms, occasionally teaching individuals and classes at various events ever since.  For those of you that talk to him online, he's not actually a muppet, honest.

An aspiring genie with a spotless, tilted halo and a dirty mind, she has been in and out of the kinky lifestyle for 30 years.

Through her relationship with Senor Jaime, V has discovered many benefits and possibilities of hypnosis and trance.

     Professionally, V is an educator, nurse, massage therapist, and recently completed a PhD. V also completed her Master Practitioner of NLP in 2016. She teaches at a local college, assists Senor Jaime with running The WhatKnot and MAsT Austin, is a proud member of Bound by Desire, and is a co-producer of the HEaRT of TX conference.



Dragonherder has been mesmerized by mind control and erotic hypnosis representations in the media from an early age. He attributes much of his fetish for transformation to early exposure to trance in shows like the Wild West, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Wonder Woman, and too many others to mention.

     He was delighted to discover that he was not alone in his fascination with erotic hypnosis when he became an active member of the Austin kink community and started attending Texas Trancegressives meetings, as well as traveling to Charmed and Entranced.

     Now he is bringing his experience in public speaking and leading seminars to HEaRT and looks forward to sharing his love of this kink, and his imagination, with those who choose to attend his class.



EnScenic, aka Noelle, fell into the erotic hypnosis community in 2012 while researching hypnosis for a story and found that she liked it too much to leave. She has presented at every major hypnocon, and likes to focus on empowering subjects, as well as incorporating music in various forms into hypnotic play. (She also still writes stuff.)



keaira was captured in 1999 by vampires and used in dark and sexual rituals, or maybe that is just what she wishes had happened.

Hi! I'm MindControlFun and I take a position that I call the "Evil Genie" model of being a hypnotist. Basically, as long as we have negotiated out in advance what will happen and everyone is clear on the details, I am happy to grant wishes to my subjects through hypnosis. Of course, the danger with an Evil Genie is never in not getting what you wish for... it's always in getting exactly what you wished for.



MindTheBaron was (literally) fascinated as a child by hypnotic magicians performing levitation tricks and movie vampires enthralling nightgowned victims. Eschewing heavy BDSM in favor of a focus on hypnofetishism, he spends most of his free time playing with his favorite sub, curating a Tumblr account full of his favorite #hypnospiral examples at, participating in the FetLife hypno community at, and recording the occasional trancey audio.
