X-rated hypnosis show sparks fury as students perform lap dances and simulate sex acts

October 5, 2012 | by | 0 Comments

A raunchy hypnosis show that gets people to simulate sex acts has been branded too rude and banned – by a students’ union.

Hypnotist Colin Adamson made gobsmacked students perform lap dances on each other in his one-man band travelling act.

Some were even made to think they were having an orgasm and others simulated  masturbation.

But during the performance at the University of Kent dozens of revellers complained – and some even walked out in disgust.

One furious participant openly swore at Mr Adamson for the humiliating acts he made them carry out.

And one of two girls hypnotised into thinking they had been indecently touched by a member of the audience said she was left ”too upset to speak”.

Students also claim hypnotist Colin Adamson even filmed the entire show – called The Hilarious & Outrageous Comedy Stage Hypnosis Show – without telling the audience members before hand.

University of Kent Feminist Society president Natasha Sadaeva said she was “disgusted” the event had been allowed to go ahead.

She said: “He shows a lack of empathy towards rape victims and all women, and a lack of basic human decency – he has no place at a student union.”

But speaking after the event Mr Adamson defended his performance saying the show was supposed to be humorous – and he had rarely received complaints it the past.

He said: “It wasn’t a sex show by any means. That was just one routine out of a lot of routines, which included people riding horses and making all kinds of funny noises.

“This is the first time I have had this reaction to the show, which I’ve been performing for ten years and when I was performing in Coopers the laughter was very loud.

“The majority of the audience got what it was intended to be – comedy. I didn’t say it was going to be filmed, no. Why would I need to? They aren’t children.”

One audience member, who did not want to be named, said: “We had no idea it was going to be filmed and ironically when the show started he said participants wouldn’t have to do anything they weren’t comfortable with.

“Some were so disgusted by it they walked out and one participant cursed at the hypnotist for some of the things he made people do.

“Some girls were clearly upset by what happened, but no one put a stop to it and just let it carry on.”

A Kent Union spokesman said: “Following the hypnotist event we investigated it thoroughly and have since reviewed our due diligence procedures for booking of acts.

“As a result of this event, we will not be booking this particular act again and we have tightened up our procedures.

“Colin Adamson has previously been booked by a number of other student unions across the UK, as well as other national companies.”
