Did anybody notice that the mainstream media loves to tell us that women well beyond their prime are hot?

Some of the topics I follow in the news, like jihadists killing yet another group of infidels, tend to lead me occasionally to sites like the Daily Mail. There, you get bombarded with "related links" that normally lead to gossip about celebrities, mixed up with acts of terrorism, rape, divorce scandals and whatever else floats the boat of your typical Daily Mail reader.

What I found remarkable, though, is that no matter how old a woman they do an article on is, she is always "gorgeous". This might be an adequate assessment if it's some 20 year-old air head. However, they don't change the wording even when they write on a woman in her 50s. For a case in point, look at the "impressive physique" of this 50-year old named Emma Forbes. It would presumably fall under "fair use" to paste a picture here, but I don't want to expose you to that material without warning. Keep in mind that the other links are even harder to stomach.

Reader Question: How does a nerdy introvert meet hot women?

Reader "smashthestate" left the following comment on the most recent Open Thread. I think it serves as a very good example of why people fall for seduction community bullshit:

I have a question for Alek Novy but ofc anyone can pitch in...

As someone who advocates social circle game, how do you suggest an introvert with niche interests starts getting regular access to hot women that are also personally compatible?

I'm looking for a relationship and I really suck at clubbing (don't really have it in me to approach and I'm not good looking enough I think). Problem is I mostly have male friends in nerdy circles that rarely have any women involved - and if there are any, they are usually unavailable due to already having a BF or simply not being attracted to me.

About the Future Direction of this Blog

A lot of the feedback I got to my recent article on mass migration --- part II will follow within the next few days --- was very thought-provoking, and touches upon several issues I would like to explore further, with a public discussion as well. However, it seems that following this direction would move too far away from the main themes I have been covering as "Aaron Sleazy". Thus, I will explore those issues on a separate blog. I'll let you know about the details soon. In fact, I have been playing around with the idea to discuss some of the more serious topics, like relationships and issues related to philosophy of life, inasmuch as it pertains to more than just your relationship to pussy, on a separate blog or website for quite some time.

Thus, in the future, "Aaron Sleazy" will more generally focus on women, pickup, and the occasional gender politics issue, while another blog, under a different pen name, will discuss topics of a more serious nature. It seems that a significant part of my audience consists of critical thinkers, so there arguably will be some overlap in the target audience anyway.

Over the last few years I got a steady trickle of emails in which people asked me whether I was "quitting" or whether I had dropped writing, or something to that effect. This is not true. I have been focusing on moving into a different direction in real life, which was, and still is, a rather time-consuming endeavor. It seems to be turning out quite alright, though. I still have a few intense months ahead of me, but the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter. You may have noticed that I have been posting a bit more in November, compared to previous months. I will hopefully be able to increase my output further in the near future.

However, do note that I consider my work on "Aaron Sleazy"-related topics to be largely done. There are still topics worth writing about, at least on a blog. I intend to discuss different, and partly related topics, in future books, but under a different pen name. For instance, I have been working on a book on relationships, which I will not release as Aaron Sleazy. Likewise, my upcoming book on meditation will not be released as an Aaron Sleazy book either. I think there will be at least one more Aaron Sleazy book, though.

I have now been writing online for close to ten years, and all of it started more or less as an accident. I never had any plan to follow a particular marketing strategy, nor was my goal to get the most money out of this. My writing has always been a hobby, and an important creative outlet for me. It is not my main occupation. For you, as a reader, this has the benefit that I can afford to upset people. In other words, I express a genuine point of view, which seems to be a relatively rare thing online these days. I could arguably have more readers if I kowtowed to the ideological mainstream, or jumped on, for instance, the manuresphere bandwagon, but that would rob me of any motivation to express my views online. I express my point of view, not the point of view my target reader would want to see expressed. I am very grateful for the many smart people who comment on my blog, write on my forum, or email me. The quality of my audience is much more important for me than its quantity, and this will not change, no matter under which name I am going to write online in the future.

The Open Thread: December 2015

Since I get a relatively high number of comments that are tangential to the articles, I'd like to try to move those parts of the conversation to the monthly 'Open Thread'.

In short, it you think anything you're going to write is "off topic" to the current post, but still related to pickup, women, gender politics and other topics I discuss on this blog, then please leave a comment to the most recent Open Thread, such like this one. Just post below.

Thank you.
