In a way, West Point, you're ENTIRELY correct - Hypnosis CAN NOT make you do something that you already don't want to do! It can only increase your
suggestiveness towards doing something. It kind of supresses your inhibitions.
Myself, I was in a group that was hypnotized once, but it didn't work on me - but it did for others. Why? Because for them, not only did they want to
be hypnotized, but they were okay with anything that was going on. As for me, I wanted to be hypnotized, but I just couldn't envision everything that
was going on.
But trust me, it's real.
Now, as for ideas:
IMHO the forgetting their name idea sounds EXCELLENT! Really great!
Here's some other ideas:
1. Have them think that they're so drunk, that the world seems to be turning on its side (they should be unable to stand up from this one!)
2. Have them sit apart from each other (preferrably each a different sex) and pretend the other person is a mirror!
3. Have them, whilst sitting apart from each other, see the other person transform into their mother!
