Pick-up Guru Roosh Seduces Five Women Per Year
When Roosh wrote his self-proclaimed "game bible" Bang, he made $60,000 per year, which is a good salary for a 27-year-old biologist. After taxes, he's got around $45,000 left. After saving $13,000 to travel, he spent $32,000. He calculated his "True Cost Per Notch" as $6,500. That means he slept with only five women that year. If that sounds unimpressive, realize that Bang concludes "an average player ... will get 3-8 notches in a year" and "will score a one-night stand once in a blue moon." By his own reckoning, Roosh was pretty average.
Ironically, his book 30 Bangs explains that half his notches do not come from cold approaching women. Instead, he had affairs with a coworker, social circle fix-ups, blog groupies, and women who approached him. On his vaunted Ukraine trip, he just stuck with an English-speaking girlfriend he met at work. Even his prime advertisement for Bang shows that success comes when women approach him:
One night we went out to a club ... when a girl came up to my friend and said he was handsome. She was fat and ugly but she had a few friends with her, one of whom was very pretty.
The point is that Roosh, or pretty much anybody, could effortlessly sleep with a couple of average women per year. Instead, he cruises until 4:00 a.m. in pursuit of "Craig's list fatties" and "monstrous", "ugly", women who were "too drunk to legally consent," and sex that "did not meet expectations." It seems like a lot of effort to get just a few extra one night stands. Is this the idol you want to look up to? No wonder he's so negative about women.
