I am also interested in this.
I am getting so tired of slitting the throats of people who say that I am a violent psychopath.

I perform the old "Hand stuck to Table" bit. But I only do this perhaps once or twice a week, and then only with a woman - and then only after I have spent some time at that table and we're having a good laugh and they being thoroughly fooled.

Even then it only works just over half of the time - but because the spectator and I are "friends" at that point, we laugh off the failure together.

I tell you though, when it works it is easily the most devastating and powerful thing I can do. Sometimes the spectator will cry . . . but I've found that afterwards they are okay and are very keen to have me sit down with them and talk.

I think they cry because they get scared, but on the flip side they like me even more when I help them out of it and show them that they are fine. I think it is the power of the effect that completely overwhelms them - for when there is no explanation apart from pure magic, the spectator must surely feel her world suddenly splitting apart from the seams.

I also feel that afterwards there is an emotional connection from the woman towards me.

Are you talking about an effect based on pure suggestion? or something as doing a metal bending routine and using suggestion for a coin bend or something along those lines? For me I use suggestion a lot to inhance an effect such as pk/metal bending when doing walk around. Depending on the effect such as an effect based on Luke Jermays work from his building blocks book I will sometimes do it depending on how my spectator is reacting. If I'm confident I can get the subtelteys to work on them I will go for it.

Every time I perform. Kenton Knepper and Luke Jermay are good starting points.
