I occasionally come across references to the documentary “The Red Pill”. It’s not so much that people in the various manosphere/men’s rights/mgtow/red pill communities speak very highly of it. Instead, it is praised as an attempt to bring awareness of contemporary men’s issues into the mainstream. I recently watched that documentary. In a nutshell, if… Continue reading Review: The Red Pill (Documentary, 2016)
You’re horny and you want to get laid. Because you know what matters for short-term sexual attraction, you work out and dress well. Thus, you spend a lot of time, energy, and money to look good so that one of the girls at the local club decides to spread her legs for you. You think… Continue reading With Women, Your Reward for Success is Working Harder and Paying More
The other day I posted an article as Aaron S. Elias in which I share my impressions of James Damore’s class action lawsuit against Google. The published PDF is quite entertaining as it sheds light on what an utterly degenerate organization Google has become. My personal highlight was a cucked employee who sleeps in the… Continue reading Cucked men and their misguided belief that they are “progressive”
Yesterday I published a guest post by my (Asian) girlfriend, in which she describes two of her cucked male friends. In this post, I’m going to elaborate on my perception of Asian or, more precisely, Chinese culture and why I think this leads to the outcome we so often see: meek men and submissive women.… Continue reading How Asian culture breeds desirable women and cucked men
A topic I’ve been discussing quite a bit with my girlfriend recently is how Asian culture affects men much more negatively than women. After all, a submissive woman is desirable, while a submissive man is not. In this post, my submissive Asian cutie describes two of her cucked friends. I will follow this up with… Continue reading Guest post by my girlfriend: Two exemplary cucked Asian men
The reason fat shaming works and why fat women are so embarrassed about being fat is due to hundreds of millions of years of evolution. Women are of course perfectly aware of the importance of being slender if they want to attract a good provider. No slender woman who is working hard on staying in… Continue reading ‘Woman’ is to ‘fat’ like ‘man’ is to ___ ?
It is not uncommon that men put off plans. They may dream of writing their novel, traveling to some far-off destination or trying some crazy hobby. Not now, but someday. Yet, the time is never right. I have even met people in their late 20s or early 30s who told me about what they intended… Continue reading The Importance of Getting It out of Your System
In my last article, Your sex drive vs. your desire of picking up women, I mentioned that one motivation behind my wild seducer days was that I was pretty obsessed with sex for a while. It’s doubtful whether I could seriously have called myself a sex-addict, but seeing how wishy-washy a discipline psychology is, I… Continue reading Determination and pickup
Some days ago a reader pointed me to Blackdragon’s blog. That is a guy I first encountered on the old mASF forum about a decade ago. I don’t have the impression that he’s stupid, but I always had the impression that his priorities are a bit odd. For one, back then he insisted on solely… Continue reading Your sex drive vs. your desire of picking up women
My girlfriend has a personality trait I rarely observe among women: she sets goals and consistently works towards them. This has many manifestations. One of her goals is to have a family, thus she works on acquiring skills that will make her a great wife and mother. For instance, she reads up on child-rearing (!)… Continue reading Female vs male hobbies
I think I have written about the misconception this article is going to focus on before, but it probably can’t hurt to discuss it again in more detail as you so often encounter it that it makes your head spin. Well, given that the vast majority of men are beta cucks, it is no surprise… Continue reading The “men are like switches, women are like dials” nonsense
Some time ago a guy asked me what I think he should fix about himself, assuming that money isn’t much of a concern. I found this rather peculiar. Still the issue of cosmetic procedures for men comes up occasionally. Quite frankly, I think it’s normally only gay men who spend thousands on that, but let’s… Continue reading Cosmetic procedures for men
I was recently pointed towards an article disseminating a social sciences article in which the researchers wanted to explore why men rather spend time among themselves than with (Western) women. The journal article they refer to is Privileging the Bromance by Robinson et al. It’s paywalled research, though. The key part of the article is… Continue reading Science figures out why men rather stay single
When my grandfather married, his wife was 19. He was almost 50. It was an obvious deal, consisting of trading youth for resources, and it was seen as perfectly okay back then. Of course, feminists fume when they hear stories like that. It bothers them beyond belief that the prime resource women bring to the… Continue reading Guys hit the wall six feet under
Among the most popular myths perpetuated by the divorce industry is that the ditz who married a doctor and stayed at home to raise children gave up a great career. After all, since women can do everything better than men, it is only logical to assume that absolutely everyone of them would have ended up… Continue reading Career sacrifices men make in marriage
The other week I attended an academic conference in an applied field. To my surprise, there were quite a few people from industry attending as well. One of the guys I ended up talking to told me about his educational background, and his current job. He was among the older attendees, easily in his late… Continue reading How men and women talk about their careers
A few weeks ago I visited my parents for a few days. As they don’t need the space, they kept my room the way it was when I moved out. This put me in the convenient position that I never really had to go through my things and decide what I wanted to keep. However,… Continue reading Men who don’t seriously date in their early 20s dodge bullets
In all countries, men have a lower life expectancy than women. The main reason is that men take more risks, which causes them to die sooner. It’s quite easy to kick the bucket if you throw caution in the wind and engage in dangerous activities. This may get you a posthumous Darwin Award, but that… Continue reading Another reason why men die earlier than women
This is another old and unpublished post of mine, which I originally wrote in early 2010. I recently received an email in which a guy made an interesting observation while reading through some of my earliest public forum posts: “In one of your post, you wrote how you had trouble sleeping next to a new… Continue reading When learning how to pick up girls, every step closer to the goal is valuable
I’m still going through files that I have amassed over the last 5 to 10 years. While doing so, I unearthed anther article, which I completed but never posted anywhere. The context was that back then, some PUAtards wrote about “neediness management”, which I thought was yet another nonsensical concept. The claim was that guy… Continue reading Neediness Management — A Problem that takes care of itself
Alek Novy just left a comment on my first post on YouTube train wreck “Blonde in the Belly of the Beast” that reminded me of an article I wanted to write: Consider that girls mature earlier and get experiences earlier than men. A 30 year old woman has lived the life of a 45 year… Continue reading Age vs sexual experience of men and women
Note: This is another article I wrote some tie ago. It was originally intended as a follow-up to my classic post The Biggest Dating Mistake Women Make. It’s been almost four years. Well, let’s just say that I’ve been very busy. In my last article I argued that women should try to find a partner… Continue reading Men are to Wine what Women are to ____ ?
I didn’t think I’d ever shill for an online product, but my opinion of Jordan Peterson’s Future Authoring Program is indeed a positive one. In summary, it is a guided writing exercise, to the tune of $14.95, which will lead you to clarify your goals and help you reach them. In essence, the process is… Continue reading My experience with Jordan Peterson’s Future Authoring Program
In my post “Alpha is a state of mind, not a demographic.” (LOL), I argued that losers don’t feel great and have no reason to feel great anyway. Thus, all attempts to improve their “inner game” without trying to fix their life are bound to fail. In this post, I’d like to elaborate more on… Continue reading Feeling great is a reward for doing well in life
I just came across a comment left by a reader about five years ago (!) on my old blog, which I think deserves further attention, as it very succinctly captures why some guys don’t get laid: Alek [Novy] brought up a very important point in the other thread: if your lifestyle is lacking to the… Continue reading Reader comment: Lack of pussy is a symptom of bigger issues
Occasionally, people recommend I check out Rollo Tomassi’s popular blog “The Rational Male”. I skimmed a few posts. Personally, it’s not for me as his writing is incredibly meandering and very fluffy. I also noticed that he’s been teaming up with a bunch of dubious characters in the commercial PUA industry but, hey, the man’s… Continue reading “Alpha is a state of mind, not a demographic.” (LOL)
Recently a reader remarked on this blog that social science research falls into two categories. It either confirms what is blatantly obvious, or it is obviously bullshit. Here is a recent research result in the former category: Is sociopolitical egalitarianism related to bodily and facial formidability in men? by a bunch of academics from Brunel,… Continue reading Science finds that losers tend to be lefties (duh!)
An interesting aspect of having an internet presence is that sometimes people approach me almost as if they are asking for approval to do something. A few times guys asked me about my opinion on dating much younger girls. Of course, as long as they are not breaking any laws, that’s totally fine, regardless of… Continue reading No, you don’t need to bother with women if you don’t want to
I used to stress the importance of style. It is of course not unimportant, but a much bigger determinant of your success with women is your physique. Thus, if you walk around in a plain T-shirt and your female acquaintances remark that you surely work out, you’re fine. From that point onward, adding more muscle… Continue reading How to figure out whether you’re buff enough for successfully picking up girls
I criticized Jordan Peterson for calling MGTOWs “pathetic weasels”, and outlined that MGTOW consists of two groups: genuine MGTOWs who realize that the odds are stacked against them. The world is full of shitty women and the court system will eat them alive. There is another group: “Virgin-TOW”. Those are men who seek shelter in… Continue reading About Jordan Peterson’s backpedalling on calling MGTOWs “pathetic weasels”
By now you have learnt that “just being yourself” doesn’t get you girls, unlike your mom told you. You may also have learnt that approaching hundreds of girls indiscriminately doesn’t get you laid either, let alone with “10s”. So, what is left? That’s easy, check out my books. My free ebook Debunking the Seduction Community played a… Continue reading Want a head start? Buy my books!
Besides Vinnie constantly acting like a cuck, yet not suffering any consequences for it, “Entourage” depicts something else the average male can readily identify with: crab mentality. This concept is based on an interpretation of crab behavior. Apparently, if you dump a few hundred crabs into a barrel, they drag each other down instead of… Continue reading The Crab Mentality in “Entourage”
Quite some time ago we had a brief discussion on the HBO show “Entourage” in an Open Thread. I would like to revisit that and flesh out my previous remarks. “Entourage” has often been highlighted by PUA gurus morons as an example of a show full of characters guys wanting to get better with women… Continue reading Why “Entourage” is “Sex and the City” for beta men
Blog reader “Haselnuss” left an interesting comment on the recent Open Thread. It’s about women who, despite being OK-ish looking, can’t get a guy to date them. My first response was to ask about socioeconomic status. But there is of course another point to it. He wrote: I know several 20 y/o women. All of… Continue reading You are a lot better than your competition than you think
Not too long ago I publicly declared that I have a man-crush on Jordan Peterson. In response, a commenter posted a video clip with Peterson’s take on MGTOW (I’ll have more to say about that kind of comment in a different post). Here is the clip: There is a really great sentence in it: “Maybe,… Continue reading Jordan Peterson is wrong with his opinion on MGTOW
In light of my recent post on the bullshit claim that married men live longer, I’d like to tear another oft-repeated and related claim to shreds. It is the claim that men live longer when they marry younger spouses. You’ll find plenty of sources on that. It goes back to an allegedly solid academic study.… Continue reading No, you won’t live longer just because you got a young spouse
Following up on my last post Exercise for Readers: Do married men live longer?, I would like to make a few remarks. But before I start, urge you to read the comments that were left under that post, if you haven’t yet done so. They are worth reading. I was particularly pleased by the wide… Continue reading So, do married men live longer?
On a recent post, blog reader Don commented: I once asked a question about the absurdity of women expecting their husbands to pay for a life time of her expenses just because they love them by forcing ideals of marriage. I got similar responses from Feminists. One even suggested that men live longer in marriages.… Continue reading Exercise for Readers: Do married men live longer?
Blog reader James posted a link to a good article on involuntary men. I’ll post the link for now: http://www.elle.com/life-love/sex-relationships/a33782/involuntary-celibacy/ I currently have a lot on my plate, so I won’t be able to write a dedicated article. As always, though, I read all comments.
Some of you are probably familiar with Johnny Sins, as he is rather prominent in a particular kind of movie genre. This is what he looks like: He’s a pretty buff dude. According to some online source, his stats are 174 lbs (78.9 kg) at 6′ (183 cm). By any means, this is a fantastic… Continue reading Johnny Sins and the problem of unrealistic expectations
Some time ago a reader posted a link to a clip taken from one of the Dirty Harry movies. The video is further below. I don’t want to focus so much on what Clint Eastwood’s character says, or his body language, which shows his utter disapproval of the charade he is supposed to take part… Continue reading An overlooked example of the masculinity (“alphaness”) of Dirty Harry
During the collapse of the PUA industry, some people transitioned into “lifestyle”, writing about how live like a millionaire on a shoestring budget. All it takes is running an online business and moving to some Third World country. There is also the wider manosphere, which has a significant part of people in it who fantasize… Continue reading Alphas abroad, losers back home
A phenomenon I sometimes encounter in my consultations is that guys aren’t honest with regards to their level of success with women, or the complete lack thereof. Often it takes five or ten minutes until they finally admit that they are virgins, or have had a sloppy make out with some drunk chick at a… Continue reading Stop bullshitting yourself
There is a downright obsession with “six-pack abs” and low body fat in general in certain corners of the internet. When skimming certain forums, you could be forgiven for thinking that you accidentally arrived at a watering hole for gay men, such is the adoration (“miring”) many guys show for other guys with well-developed abs… Continue reading Don’t bother getting body fat down to sub-10 % levels
I had to advise someone on a pretty interesting situation some weeks ago: good-looking dude, but he was getting too much attention from the women in his office. This was causing some problems for him, so he asked me what he should do about it. Our discussion moved towards behavior, but at the end I… Continue reading Guide to dressing like a loser
In a recent comment a reader mentioned taking phenibut, a substance that has a calming effect, lowers inhibitions, and relaxes facial muscles, among others. This reminded me of a number of experiments I wanted to conduct. The wider context are “nootropics”, i.e. substances that enhance your cognitive function. Substances I wanted to look into are:… Continue reading Open Discussion: Nootropics
Last week Yarara created a thread with the title “Personal Finances and Common Sense” in my forum. If you are a registered member, please go check it out. You will find some input from me as well.
Most guys are aware that a lot of women deceive with regards to their looks. Makeup is a given. Some women you don’t even recognize without their makeup on. If you lack experience in that regard, at the very least watch a few YouTube tutorials for girls on various techniques, like temporary lip enlargement or… Continue reading Gym BS: Guys experiencing magic growth
Blog reader Yarara left an interesting comment on my post on Fat Vegetarians. The entire exchange he is involved with is interesting, but one statement in particular stands out, and not just because it fits thematically to my last post, Everything you do is a reflection of your personality: At the time I had a… Continue reading You can just walk away!
Last weekend I’ve had a very interesting conversation with a long-time reader of my blog and books. (Thanks again, N.!) We were not talking about pick-up, but instead mostly about trading. To summarize his view on psychological aspects, my interlocutor made the statement that trading is essentially a mirror of one’s personality. Well, books have… Continue reading Everything you do is a reflection of your personality
