Talk:Hypnotic breast enlargement
- Agreed. Where's the proof that this is going on? And we should have pictures. ГенгисYou have the right to be offended; and I have the right to offend you. 07:45, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
Oh right, this. I remember a transwoman who thought she could grow breasts by, basically, wishing really hard for it. Something about "magick" (sic) and, of course, mystical energies. Some people. At least she didn't waste any money on a charlatan. - LucidFox (talk) 02:21, 19 August 2011 (UTC)
There is another study in addition to the one reported in the article that purportedly showed this: Williams, J. (1974). Stimulation of Breast Growth by Hypnosis Journal of Sex Research, 10, 316-326. — Unsigned, by: 22.214.171.124 / talk / contribs (signed by bot) 10:30, 15 June 2015 (UTC)
Online copies of the studies
- Breast Enlargement through Visual Imagery and Hypnosis, Willard 1977
- Stimulation of breast growth by hypnosis, Williams 1974
- Study flaws:
- Size: Willard had a sample size of 22 and Williams had a sample size of 6(hypnosis only)+13(hypnosis and suggestion).
- Control: Neither had a control group (HBE vs no HBE).
- Confounding: Both noted that some of their subjects were on birth control. Willard noted that none of the subjects were on other medications; Williams failed to ensure that subjects were not also pursuing other augmentation efforts.
- Length: Williams measured base size over 3 weeks, performed hypnosis&measurement over 12 weeks, and ended the study. Willard made no baseline measurement, measured after 6 weeks of 1/week HBE, and measured after 6 additional weeks of .5/week HBE. FU22YC47P07470 (talk/stalk) 00:05, 30 July 2016 (UTC)
There was no direct or indirect correlation between the total number of times the exercise was practiced, the total number of times the warmth or pulsation was felt and the amount of increase in the breast size. Contrary to speculation at the beginning of the experiment, the size of the breasts at the beginning of the experiment could not be correlated with the amount of increase that was obtained.
- Summary: these studies suggest extremely weak support for HBE. The FCP Foundation (talk/stalk) 00:05, 30 July 2016 (UTC)

I would imagine there is a vast range of nuttiness around this. This is accupressure, this one homeopathy. I would imagine that every kind of alt med you can imagine is in on it.--Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 11:42, 30 July 2016 (UTC)
