i can still remember exactly what started my fetish. as a kid(6-7) i used to watch Winx no idea why, i think my sis made me watch it with her and i got interested i guess. anyway i saw the season where the villain turns bloom evil every few episodes. and for some reason i always tried to re-watch those episodes no idea why i liked them so much at the time. then quite a few years later i saw the episode again now being old enough to find things properly i searched more specifically. and before i knew it i found my fetish then 1 year after discovering my fetish. I find this lovely website that was 2,5 years ago been lurking and rarely uploading ever since.

and i can honestly say i wouldn't have it any other way. :3

ps. please spare me grammar Nazi's i'm just a foreigner trying his best.

yeah I can relate, my fetish started at the same time. I think I came home from a birthday party or something with my parents and it was already midnight. I turned on tv and watched a magician show until a hypnotist appeared and hypnotized the viewer with a giant spiral. he told us that we would see a hole in our hand and at least I did. That was the moment I fantasized about using this for my own entertainment. It was even more amplified with all the hypno in tv shows. Anime and cartoons alike. And I watched "two and a half men"at the same time so I instantly started to fantasize about sexual usage as well. But I never told anybody I know in real life about my fetish.

how is the death of your fish related to hypnosis?

Tizer, Doudile just says edgy things without end, and none of us really know what they mean, best to just move along.

Yup
I was thirteen or so and really into Pokemon. Then the episodes with Sabrina came out.
Being all stern and powerful, freezing people in place, talking about turning people into her dolls and playing with them, controlling other peoples' bodies from afar, actually turning people into inanimate dolls helpless before her will ....

I had some very interesting dreams about being not entirely willingly turned into one of her dolls and kinda realised that I rather liked the idea. And also other girls.
It was a very educational pair of episodes for me.

Nor is it necessary for you to find any logic in my deaths.

[BUT YOU CAN TRY AGAIN, INSERT COIN TO PLAY]
Mine started with The Jungle Book. I thank Kaa the snake for getting me where I am today.
Mine started with my enjoyment of TG/TF. I always just loved the mental changes that happened.
My first experience with sexuality was a daydream in which I watched a man and a woman mesmerize each other with the sight of the other's (idealized) sexual characteristics. They marched like automata into asexual hijinks, still centered on their arousal, and I'd just dream and dream, ogling it all in my mind.

These daydreams evolved to include all sorts of characters I consumed from TV.

These daydreams were my sexuality.

The fetish is there since zero hour
I’m not really sure when I figured it out, but in retrospect, it started with the infamous Scooby-Doo episode. It’s probably why I also have a thing for outfits.
You know those really low budget 2008 youtube hypnosis videos
that was my gateway
Never :)

I'm really only here for the mind-control stuff alone.

I was never into the sexualisation stuff here to be honest. I don't mind if it's there and it serves as a bonus for you people, but I'm only interested in some nice-looking mind control pictures.
I suspect most of us are just born with it, really. A tiny neurological wrinkle given expression by the Saturday morning cartoons we were exposed to when we were about 6. (This makes it fun to guess how old people are based on their responses in this thread.)

Molly Moon's Incredible Book of Hypnotism (or something like that). Read it as a young teen and it never really left me...even if it's one of the most fantasy-filled and least erotic views of hypnosis out there.

To be honest, almost any other form of hypnosis in media at the time scared the shit out of me. I'm almost surprised that the Molly Moon books didn't as well. :P
I remember liking that book a lot, that and, oddly enough, Sonic Pinball Party probably planted the seeds. Mostly because the "plot" of Pinball Party was that your friends are all brainwashed to try and stop you and for some reason the idea of a brainwashed Amy tickled my fancy even at a young age.

Honestly it's probably a combination of cartoons involving it too (totally spies comes to mind...) but those two I remember as stand out moments.
Uuuumm... Probably that one episode of Pokémon where a Hypno entrances Misty. I had that shit on VHS and would watch it all the time. I could never figure out why I would feel (horny). It still took me a few years to understand. Then one day I found the hub and everything made sense. I'm thankful for this place because I no longer feel alone.
The short answer is "whenever it would happen in cartoons I watched".

Particularly things like "The Pied Piper Power Play" and "Chocolate Chips" episodes of Chip N' Dale's Rescue Rangers involving Gadget, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles episode "Pirate Radio" with April and Irma.

Then there was a bunch of other stuff, like old commercials for a "Midnight Madness" sale that had a bunch of people sleepwalking at night to a store with their eyes open and chanting. And the first chapter of the Sailor Moon manga when a bunch of girls who purchased energy sapping jewelry got out of bed in their nightclothes and pajamas and began wandering around at night. (Sailor Moon did more stuff but that was the first one I saw)

Lots of other cartoons and misc that had characters sleepwalking, or hypnotized. The more stereotypical, the better.

It was a gradual buildup of witnessing all these things. But then there's the longer answer:

Partly because I liked the fact that they were unaware of anything and everything around them and their one-track minds kept them from understanding anything around them.

I also really thought the voice work of female characters chanting and moaning and saying these things were really sexy.

It was then, that my imagination started to take off. I remember thinking a lot "So, when they're like this, they are helpless and mindless, right? ....so if a girl was in her underwear or you took off her clothes, she wouldn't care and would keep going,right?"

I was already a panty and underwear fetishist first and foremost. Though the shape of swimsuits also did it for me, underwear's embarassing nature was a main thing of mine.

And besides thinking that hypnotized, sleepwaking and mindless girls are sexy, I started thinking it was the perfect excuse to combine the two. And would also have a lot of sexual fantasies about pulling down the pants of hypnotized people or sleepwalking people to see their underwear.

Yeah, my hypnofetish is pretty much just me being a textbook voyer and underwear fetishist, who likes fictional depictions of helplessness. *shrug*

I'm starting to think that my reasons are vastly less interesting than anyone else's. I'm just a perv who has a thing for anime girls and cartoon characters and cute undies.
When, out of morbid curiosity, I was reading a bit of slavery bdsm porn (which at the time I couldn't stand), and realized that I was actually into it because the central conceit of the story was that the woman was drugged into finding slavery hot, and I suddenly realized I had a thing for girls who were turned on by having conventionally awful things happen to them. And then I realized that mind control satisfied not only that but a fetish I had developed extremely young, back when I only really understood it as an embarrassing fascination, for girls who entered a state of sleepy passivity where they didn't mind being naked.
About two years ago now, I saw it in a dream =w=
I had a dream my friend massages me with some hypnotic oil, that turned me into a puppet that would follow her every order.
Then I woke up and thought of how fascinating this was, and then I looked into it online
Cartoon, Anime girls getting controled always got my heart beating so fast as a kids.

Then i started to look at YT where you could find hypno porn with nudity without sex, the hypnosis part always getting me happy for some reasons.
Really loving it, at that time i doesnt even understand the concept of lust and boner and after watching it my penis always getting sticky and wet for some reasons.
*slams fist down on table* that goddamn snake.....

Strangely I honestly don't like maledom (being a dude myself) yet every fucking time I watch that scene....I dunno. I just can't say no to watching it.
I just thought.

I've never really said myself.

I think hypno really became a fetish for me in full when I found the hub.

I've always had a thing for transformation and corruption, dating back really as far as I can recall. Not even a fetish until my teens just something that i always liked.
I've actually never really considered it to be a fetish so much as a complex. At the end of the day the difference mostly resides in the connotations but I've come to see myself as different from most of those who see it as a fetish.

As far as beginnings go, I'd have to say mostly unsure; in addition to that episode of Yu-Gi-Oh where Tea's MC by Marik is more or less randomly triggered at the end of the episode. (It's pretty out of place if you think about it.)
erm Powerpuff girls started it for me.

LOL i'm guessing abracadaver? yeah i remember those scenes making me feel funny as a kid but it was especially weird cause they would simultaneously kinda freak me out. though i'm pretty sure That Fucking Snake was my first when it came to hypno, abracadaver's what got me into bondage/mummification along with it
My sister really liked Totally Spies and wouldn't let me change the channel so whenever there was a hypnosis episode, I would notice and be slightly more interested than with the other ones. This wasn't exclusive to Totally Spies; most hypnosis episodes in other shows made me more interested in the episode.

What really made me understand that this was my fetish, however, was when I first masturbated accidentally while watching videos of people being hypnotized on YouTube. I came back for more (hahah) and eventually found my way around some of the DeviantArt hypno pages and GGH before reading in one of the comment sections about a "hub" for hypnosis. I was bored and as such searched for a "Hypnohub" and lo and behold, I had found my people.

Huh...you first masturbated by accident too?

If I’m being frank, I didn’t know where mine started. (I posted here before but I only guessed with that one.) I think Mine actually originated from this creepy place of wanting to hypnotize girls in my middle school classes to have sex with me, but it became more and more overtime...dunno why. I’m glad it turned submissive because looking back, that was a REALLY creepy fantasy to have...
The earliest memory of my hypno fetish probably started with either three things. I'm not sure which one I saw first, but it was Kaa and Shanti in the Jungle Book 2, any Jimmy Neutron episodes with hypnosis, and an episode of Power Rangers Dino Thunder where the yellow ranger is mind controlled by a dinosaur's skull.
Normally when asked I'll pin it on totally spies but really I keep looking back and finding more and more of it in the shows and games I watched played as a little dude. I'm also had it as long as I can remember, even to the actual fetish point (though I didn't know what masturbation was yet, until 13-14)
After that once I realized that jacking off was nice I realized I definitely have some weirdo fetish and went (naturally) to deviantart. I kinda trial-and-error'd my way around niche fetishes like transformation before finding out that my jackpot bullseye was hypnosis. Chaos Croc is to thank for making me realize. Since then I've lurked around deviantart and eventually here as well for several years and here I am. I remember I used to keep my fetish a lot more bottled up, under the assumption I'd get ruthlessly kinkshamed for it because of how close to rape it kind of is. Luckily none of my friends did that when I eventually "came out" to them, and I can anonymously blab about it on the internet. I've never let the stigma really affect me though, mostly since I'm hopelessly into hypnosis, I can get off to almost anything but actual scat, hard vore, guro, and most futa as long as hypnosis is involved. I should really join the discord group sometime...
