Why are belly dancers popular?
As a guy who has this fetish, I'd like to hear your thoughts on why you like people being hypnotized to belly danceto begin with.
Because they dress like harem concubines and that's fucking hot yo

yeah that's basically it
For one thing the movements tend to be rather sensuous calling to mind sex just by watching them.
Harem garb is sexy
Exposed bellies are sexy
Dancing is sexy
revealing clothing is better than no clothing

yeah i'm aware the post is about dancing but the clothes part is preeeeetty good too
Everything that is listed here in thread succinctly summarizes why I love me belly dancer outfits in hypno-related situations.

Thirded.
I'm gonna need some videos of these hypnotic bellydancers.

For uh...

Research purposes...
I think its mostly due to fetish itself. First some people are into bellies, then into weird clothes, then into belly dancers?

Dunno. I never got that one.
well, I can't say from personal experience what the appeal is on the sub side of things, but I imagine for some it may have to do with the role reversal thing.
As in, belly dancers are commonly portrayed as servants, subdued, there for the entertainment of their masters.

So seeing the commonly submissive archetype being painted with a dominant hue may appeal.

Or I'm just talking out of my ass, just wanted to add my two cents~

A fair point to the appeal of bellydancing. It's the enticement of that which is just out of reach. Clothes that suggest what's underneath, but just a wisp away...much more appealing than just nude

Done well, and a good bellydancer is a power game. The appearance of the submissive, performing for their master, sure, but you get a good bellydancer and the power lies with her. She is a tease...an enticer. The clothes, the moves, the whole ritual of it is intended to appeal to the viewer's libido, leaving the reward just out to touch, but with the suggestion that maybe....just maybe.

Strangely, I find it is one of the rare practice men cannot reproduce. While they can seduce women (&men!) with their own ways, belly dance is an area where women cannot be dethroned.
I sort of agree with that statement, due to the fact that I think it's just more acceptably attractive for women to have the type of belly needed for a really sensual belly dance. And I could be talking out my ass here, considering I'm not attracted to women, but I think the belly area is inherently a "feminine" source of attractiveness, if that makes any sense, i.e. because of pregnancy and all that.

I agree...all of these clips are a little...so-so to me. (Sorry. The whole Super heroine isn't my thing.)
The dances themselves are already hypnotic, the music that plays along with them is exotic and range from jubilant to relaxing. Each dance feels less rehearsed and more like a expression of the woman more powerful than words. The dancers want to seduce you and are very flirty with it usually. They are usually adorned with beautiful glittering jewelry and gold. It's also left a huge impact on culture. But here are my two favorite examples of the dance.

There is of course the male power fantasy too

Though I personally prefer the dancers doing the hypnosis to a naive lovely lady
