Hypnopoetics 2009 Seduction Video Contest

UPDATE 5/5/2009 - The contest is over and Jesse M of Corvallis, Oregon was the winner, and the prize has been awarded to him. Congratulations, Jesse and thanks, Phil

There are two things you need to know about this before you will want to get involved. The first thing is that Seduction is a beautiful thing. And, if you can make a video as beautiful as the poetry in this book, you are pretty damn good.

The second thing you need to know is that erotic hypnosis poems work. Again, you don't have to take my word for it, here is what people are saying about the book:

What Women are saying about "Hypnopoetics..."

What Men are Saying About "Hypnopoetics..."

If you can't make a seductive video using this material, then you really fail. It's that easy. So, go for it and show me what you can do.

Official Contest Rules

Target audience

The primary target audience for submissions to the Hypnopoetics 2009 Seduction Video YouTube contest is the dating and relationship community, but you don't have to be dating or in a relationship to enter the contest.

Most of the people who purchase poetry from Hypnopoetics are men, and the poetry itself is written to assist men with seducing women. Women do buy, use and love the poetry and are encouraged to enter.


The objective of the contest is to get my erotic hypnosis and hypnotic seduction poetry distributed to as many people and in as positive a way as possible. So, the audience should be fascinated, impressed and intrigued enough with your video to visit http://www.hypnopoetics.com to find out more and get some of it for themselves.

Video guidelines/tone/perception

  1. Create a video to seduce the viewer, be sincere.
  2. Your video should be romantic, passionate, erotic, fun, modern, exciting, smart, cool, adventurous and seductive. And any other approach to the material you can think of. Except porn. No Porn - this has to meet YouTube standards.
  3. Video can be in any style: live action, animated, slide show, etc.
  4. Use these guidelines as very broad suggestions.

1. Judging
