If, like me, your first introduction to sensory deprivation tanks was on The Simpsons, then you are in good company. That episode aired, a decade went by, and just when I began to believe these tanks were the stuff of TV lore, I saw one advertised in my city.

I went ahead and booked myself in. I’m not generally claustrophobic, but it turns out that in some situations I am! I did not like being in an enclosed tank; I was too hot, and felt my anxiety rising.

I left early. It wasn’t as bad as Homer’s bumpy ride down the side of a cliff, but still… no, thank you. I decided this experiment wasn’t for me and didn’t think much more on it.
