I guess they try to lose their gag reflex, and it just builds up from there.

Aren't there easier ways?

 What leads to a person even trying it? ......... Years ago (many) in my youth I remember lots of circuses who had these type of acts.   Knife swallowers, roller skaters, jugglers, trapeze artists, trampolinists and many others.   They were all Russian or Eastern European trained from a very early age ....very much like they trained athletes with talent.  From Simon and the other so-called celebrities' amazment, they think these are new acts.   They were really common and I can't understand their reactions ...... acting up for television ?

well, if you want to work for Gillette or Wilkinsons, you have to pass this test....

Lol, DT.
