  • My girls are still toddlers, so I think it's safe to say that there will be much worse out there when they are teens, however, I have 2 little brothers ages 14 and 18. I'd like to know more about this.

  • Yeah, wow...I never had even heard of this. Thanks for sharing!

    Isn't this more of a thing you could control with your teens? I mean it would be way more noticeable if they had these headphones, I would think. Opposed to normal drugs. While I don't think that them getting this type of "high" would be good for them, is there any proven negative side affects?

    I remember a day when it was either an upper, a downer or a combination of both. Not sitting back, jammin out and getting high without taking something. My girls are ages 2 &3 and this really makes me wonder what will be out there when they are teenagers and young adults! TRUELY SCARY!!!

  • This is actually used quite often as a medical treatment for various types of mental disorders... and, like everything- not safe for everyone. However, for most people it is completely harmless... almost like being in a state of zen or meditation.`

  • WOW, the teens in my town are progressive to say the least!! A particular boy sent these links to my DD on AIM a year & a half ago when she was a freshman. My DD told us that she was listening to some "music that is supposed to be able to alter brain waves...make you feel good." Well, when we listened to one of them, we found that it was a 20 minutes long audio of a woman having an orgasm!!! She didn't know it when she was listening... the boy said to her, "You should lie down on the bed & be relaxed, it works better that way." We were freakin' PO'd and let her know in no uncertain terms that this guy was preying on her and we could bring this out into the open and call the school since he gave her some of the downloads at lunch, or delete it and AIM altogether. To this day, she has confirmed that this guy is creepy & stays far away. Honestly the crap that comes our child's way is unbelievable, and we live in a nice town!

  • Oh, and it was rated on the site it came from as "for adults only...must be 18 to download".
