MindQuake 2018 Presenters List
If you missed our inaugural conference in 2018, here are some of the amazing presenters at the event:
AlianneCimorene is a switchy sadomasochist who jumped head-first into the kink scene four years ago and never left. In her personal life she enjoys science, various arts and crafts, fanfiction, collecting sex/kink toys, and discussing safe and ethical practices inside and outside the scene. She runs mostly on pure caffeine and sugar. She has been described as “too cute to be evil,” which we all *totally* believe – probably.
Alizabeth (GirlFurniture) lives in San Francisco where she leads the SF Erotic Hypnosis Club and is the Chairperson of MindQuake; the hypnokink con, with her sexy Master, SFHypno. She is a pansexual; submissive; masochistic; self-esteem-assured; confident; happily self-reliant; lover of a semicolon and the run-on sentence; and does not take herself too seriously. Alizabeth is a subject with almost 20 years of erotic hypnosis and BDSM experience specializing in memory play. Above all, Alizabeth wants to help people get together and do kinky things with hypnosis.
Ariadne is MindQuake’s Didactic Programming Director. She has been part of the hypnosis and wider kink community for five years, during which time she has organized a number of munches and smaller events and presented on topics such as Hypnosis, CNC, and Body Horror. She and her numerous writings can be found on fetlife as @Ariadne. Her particular fascinations are pocket watches, non-euclidean geometry, and the twisted things hiding in the depths of the human consciousness.
Ashcatred has been in the erotic hypnosis scene on the East Coast for four years. Her main love is in giving and receiving pleasure in all forms! Mental and physical. She is very excited to experience the West Coast!!
Baron Voltage is an East Coast Hypnotist who’s resume of skill sets reads like the Sears catalog of the most Sadistic and sensual of hypnotic language. He has presented at every East Coast event available and looks forward to teaching nationwide and beyond.
After a lifelong fascination with mind-control and hypnosis, Blak3 (Blake) recently discovered the national community in NEEHU 9. Since then, he has focused on building his hypnosis acumen and more recently became involved in the creation of a local scene in the Metro-Detroit Area. Blak3 is a Wiseguy-trained Hypnotist with a special interest in the study of confusion inductions and suggestibility on auditory-digital subjects such as himself.
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.
Crystal is an experienced bimbo, stripper, and cam girl who has been hypnotized by more people than she can count. She was once at the center of a really hot orgy with rich swingers, a personal highlight. She’s very brainwashed.
Dancecode has been doing this hypnosisy thing for roughly four years now! He’s based in the Bay, and has taught several classes at Entranced.
Having started from a young age, Dracoso has been exploring recreational hypnosis for close to 12 years now. He enjoys learning about how the mind and the body work, and applies knowledge from anatomy, neurology, kinesiology, and the study of memory.
Ellie Copter’s lifelong fascination with altered states, dragged her down the rabbit hole of hypnokink just two years ago. Since then, she has become committed to ethical play, equity, and femme empowerment within the community. Additionally, she is turned on by power exchange, brainwashing, and watching people’s faces as they go into trance. Her blog, digitalswitchgamine.tumblr.com, is chock full of her adventures with hypnosis, gentle femdom, vintage hypno-aesthetic, .gifs of hypnotic inductions, and the insightful musings of her fellow hypnokinksters.
Hello, I’m EnScenic. I first became involved in hypno-kinkland in 2013, when I started doing research for a book which featured hypnosis. The book is still a work in progress. Most people in the community would recognize me more from presenting classes at hypno-cons or posting smut on the internet (which can primarily be found at: http://noellehastranceadventures.blogspot.com or for a more genuine look into the trash heap that my mind can be: http://enscenic.tumblr.com.)
I also bake cookies.
GleefulAbandon is a hypnofetishist, submissive, and queer (in multiple senses of the word). After over five amazing years in the Scene so far, she is constantly thrilled by the wonderful people and weird experiences (and vice versa) that she encounters. She is also an active volunteer for The Eulenspiegel Society.

JimmyGreen has been around the kink since the Yahoo groups days, but has only in recent years gotten deep into the scene. They enjoy nerdy, fun play equally as much as sexual. This beastly creature tends to wield a Mind Infinity Stone, Loki style, and loves to capture minds!

Mazirian has been involved in hypnosis, online and in-person, for 30 years. Teaching and hypnosis are two of his main life-long passions, so why not both?

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 mindthebaron.tumblr.com, and recording the occasional trancey audio.

My name is Phil and I love hypnotizing the brains out of my Slave, Alizabeth. Did I mention she’s beautiful, intelligent and completely under my control?

You may hear, “Hi, I’m Sweet!” sometime during the convention. If so, you’ve just run across a wild Sweet, a purple haired, blue eyed, sultry voiced GentleHypnoDomme. Sweet, also known as SweetTist on Tumblr, comes from a BDSM background, and is a new(ish) face in the Hypnosis community. With her obsessive personality (in every sense of the phrase), once she discovered how hot and fun hypnosis was, she dove in head first, learning as much as she could in a relatively short period of time.
