The Open Thread: October 2016

After receiving an increasing number of comments that were only tangentially related to my blog posts, I began posting the (mostly) monthly 'Open Thread'. This has been working very well so far.

In short, if 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.

The figurative and literal dumbing down of video games

I barely play video games these days, and part of the reason is that I disapprove of publishers shoving a political agenda down my throat. Just look at The Last of Us or Uncharted 4! A related reason is that since gaming has become part of the mainstream there are just too many idiots involved in it. Case in point: look for a gaming forum online, or go to YouTube. You'll be surrounded by people who are unable to write properly or make a coherent argument, and then there is the SJW plague that has infested gaming journalism.

At the BBC, being white and male is now a fireable offence

I just came across this:
Bafta award-winning comedian Jon Holmes was axed from The Now Show – the hit Radio 4 programme he has appeared on for 18 years – when bosses told him 'we're recasting it with more women and diversity'.
The (archived) article is here.

Reader feedback on using "Minimal Game" in Singapore

The other day a reader from Singapore contacted me, telling me that he has been doing well using the information contained in my book Minimal Game on his home turf. As I don't have many readers from Asia, as far as I know, I asked him to elaborate. This is what he wrote (I'm posting this with his permission):

What do desperate women do when nobody wants to marry them?

I think we all agree that women have a much harder time getting married. For that insight you don't even need to encounter some woman in her late 20s or early 30s who asks you whether you want to move in --- after a one night stand. Just look around. The desperation is real. However, the solution is rather simple, at least in Japan, where chronically single women simply marry themselves (!):

Would you fuck Hillary Clinton?

Fuck no. Of course you wouldn't.

Yet, with the first debate between Crooked Hillary and Donald "The wall just got 10ft higher" Trump, it seems opportune to point out one of the fundamental differences between the sexes. Shillary and Trump are about the same age. She is 68; Trump is 70.

The fundamental difference between male and female streamers

I'll move on from discussing "Twitch whores" soon enough, but there is one aspect I wanted to highlight: women on YouTube or Twitch tend to focus on themselves. They show cleavage, most of the screen displays them. They are central. More concretely, their looks are. The most popular topoic women cover on YouTube must be makeup. On the other hand, men focus on topics. That's no surprise as you probably wouldn't watch a dude with a PhD in motorcars or Japanese video game trivia for hours on end. Some of the most well-researched channels I have come across just have dudes narrating over video. You don't even see their face.

A note on the coming evolution of "titty streamers" and Twitch whores

Do any of you guys watch streams of video games on Twitch? Well, I don't, but I have a guy named Birdman in my YouTube playlist. He has some pretty hilarious videos, like one in which he is hitting on an alleged milf on voice chat on Xbox or his run-in with the "cam girl community". His persona is a bit silly, but he has quite a knack for presenting rather mundane events in an entertaining manner. This goes back to the issue of dullness --- dull minds don't even grasp when something funny or interesting is happening right in front of them.

Anyway, through one of his videos I learnt about the Biggest Twitch Whore Ever. Take a few minutes of your time and watch that video. It is about "LegendaryLea". It's not quite clear whether she is acting or whether she is really that dumb (I'd bet money on the latter). Instead of playing games on Twitch, she shows off her legs, ass, tits, and even vagina. It's quite incredible. She puts on her webcam, shoves her vag into the screen and salivating idiots throw money at her. I don't really care about "LegendaryLea", don't get me wrong.

Clubs vs HD Porn

Alek Novy made the following remark on my recent post on the economic struggles of clubs:
I'd say that guys waking up to "pussy being overrated" & "porn is better than most chicks" are a huge factor too. It isn't just that girls dressed slutty to get male attention. But guys also went to clubs so they can see sluttily dressed girls as well. With HD porn that's no longer that special... not worth dressing up, waiting in line for, and paying a fee in order to see it. Remember, most club guys in the history of clubs never got a single lay. (...) Most guys went for the factor of "omg i get to see a slutty-dressed chick in real life". (...)
This makes perfect sense. To me, the only plausible reasons for going to clubs are 1) wanting to get laid and 2) enjoying to hang out in a particular scene. On the other hand, the average dude only dreams of 1), and 2) isn't really a factor for him because he has no particular taste. Instead, a club is a place to consume alcohol and ogle chicks.

Clubs seem to be having a harder time

Prompted by a recent post on my forum on anecdotal evidence that clubs are disappearing, I did a bit of research on that topic, but before we get to that, I'd like to share some of my observations.

I have been aware that gentrification is a prime cause for club closures. Central London was hit pretty hard due to the redevelopment of Tottenham Court Road tube station, for instance. In addition, the authorities cracked down on clubs in Soho, leading to the closure of clubs that have been around for decades, such as Madame Jojo's. Their Tuesday night was one of my favorite nights out in London. When I was living in Berlin, I witnessed first-hand the effects of gentrification, forcing many clubs to either permanently close or move. The pattern was always more or less the same: renovations, redevelopments, new renters or owners of apartments close to clubs. Those uptight high-strung people moved to Berlin to experience some of its "cool". Yet, the moment they figure out that this means loud crowds in the neighborhood, they've had it, and file complaints with the authorities.

Are these men dull?

It is well-established that the mainstream media (MSM) have various questionable biases: they are left-leaning, so much that they topple over and end up with their head in the sand, they are misandrist, they detest logic and clear reasoning, and any kind of criticism is "hate", "racism" or "nazism". Today, we'll look at an example of misandry in the MSM. The Telegraph had a brief article on a book with the title "Dull Men of Great Britain" --- published in the men's section of that newspaper! Can you imagine a woman's magazine running a story like "The dumbest bitches in the world?". I thought so. That book itself is an affront, and the Telegraph story isn't any better. They picked the allegedly "23 dullest men in Great Britain", which includes whose achievements include:

- collecting over 300 vacuum cleaners
- building a WWI tank (!)
- traveling the country in order to photograph hedges
- collecting a myriad of handsaws
- collecting > 7,500 different beer cans in 40 years
- visiting all 2,548 railway stations in England, Scotland and Wales

Club Game for Kindle is almost done

I am happy to announce that the Kindle version of Club Game is almost ready for release. It's unfortunate that it took that long, but life had gotten in the way. I will make an announcement once Club Game for Kindle is available on Amazon.

"She is just young and healthy"

In the recent Open Thread, Lucretius Carus left a comment regarding Marisa Papen, a playboy model who wrote some drivel on why she isn't objectifying herself when she's taking her clothes off for the camera, or something like that. He wrote:
Just looked at this Brazilian (?) chick "Marisa Papen"'s Playboy pics. Honestly, I've banged hotter girls, both in real life and in high class brothels & escorts. There's nothing particularly noteworthy or intriguing about her at all. She's just young, healthy and one monthly local playmate more - that's all. And her "philosophical essay" is nothing but a joke. Not only is it a great example of twisted female logic, it also reeks of solipsism and of completely overestimating her overall importance.

A joke about efficient markets, and a deep truth about life

I just came across a joke I first heard in an introductory economics lecture. Back then it didn't notice the depth of it, though. Here it is:
A professor and an investor are walking down the street when the investor sees a $20 bill and stoops down to pick it up. The professor says "Don’t bother. If it were really there, someone would have picked it up already."
(The joke is that markets are supposed to be efficient, so investors can't make any money as everything is "priced in" into any speculative asset already. The professor believes that markets are efficient because that's what his theories says. Meanwhile, investors make money.)

Now, the question to you to think about is: Do you recognize the problem with the thought process of the professor, and notice how this is evident in reality? For extra credit, think of all the bullshit you are surrounded with on a daily basis. I am not only talking about politics. Even in allegedly high-IQ jobs people throw around bullshit phrases like "best practices" in order to justify borderline moronic processes. It's as if every excuse is good enough as long as it lets them avoid using their brain. You think I'm too radical? Read up what has become of the companies that were featured in Peters' In Search of Excellence.

An Extreme Case of Female Attention Seeking

As I have become older, I began realizing that women do incredible things for male attention. Tattoos are an obvious example. Since all women put on make-up and dress nicely, a young attention-hungry woman needs to up her game, so she may get inked. Or she gets hair extensions, a new nose, a boob job, or collagen in her lips. All that is not difficult to grasp. However, I quite recently made a possibly startling realization about an encounter I had many years ago.

I was "hanging out" with a young and very attractive female student, and one fine day she told me that she makes some cash on the side as a webcam girl. The context was quite bizarre to begin with, because when I first undressed her, she asked me whether I recognized her. This sounded plain weird to me, but when you're about to get it on, you are not going to attempt entering a discussion that may only lead to you not getting laid. Talking too much in those situations is also bad because you may end up not wanting to fuck her anymore because she says some complete bullcrap that turns you off.

Female Attention Seeking Behavior vs Suitability for a Relationship

In the current Open Thread, I was asked the following:
Hey Aaron, this is possibly a stupid question, but I wanted to ask. What are your thoughts on women with tattoos being relationship material?  
Several guys, at least in America, think that women with ink are automatically out of the running for anything long-term, or say that if she only has a couple that are small or trendy, it's fine. I'm usually quite fond of girls with tattoos (as long as they're well done), but I don't have as much experience as you do, so I thought I'd get your perspective. 
Do you think tattooed women are unfit to marry or keep as a longterm girlfriend?
Tattoos itself are not necessarily the issue. Instead, ask yourself why women get tattoos, and you will have your answer. In short, women get tattoos in order to send a particular message to their environment. In that regard, it does not really matter how many tattoos she has or how big they are. In fact, I am tempted to say that a middle-class woman with a small "trendy" tattoo located where only her sexual partners can see it is easily as bad as some low-class woman with a tattoo covering most of her body.

Dissecting more bullshit advice from Wall St. Playboys commenters

As a follow-up on my last post, This is why some guys get nowhere, I am going to spend some more time discussing bullshit online. It's about "money making" advice, and you may very well ask why you should bother. However, there are a few good lessons to be learnt, and if not that, then there is hopefully some entertainment value in it.

But before we start, let's ponder the question how you can tell that someone online is full of shit. It's not that difficult as long as you have some knowledge and experience to draw from, and aren't allergic to basic arithmetic. The absolute worst are people who know nothing, form strong opinions, and feel compelled to spread their nonsense all over the internet. I'm sure you can think of an example or two. One only hopes that those people are merely scammers, instead of morons, who take advantage of the plethora of idiots online.

Without further ado, here is another brain-dead comment taken from the post Money Changes Your Life over at Wall Street Playboys. (I think this comment is a parody, but bear with me for a moment.) Here it is:

Response to a Concern Troll: Alpha Status vs Socio Economic Status

When I was busy pummeling the PUA industry, trolls and shills were adorably cute. Their comments consisted of one-liners, personal attacks, or exaggerated praise of their master. Of course, their contributions often were in poor English, which indicated outsourcing to some guy in the Third World via sites like ODesk. Bullshit like that was annoying because it meant clicking "spam" over and over. For some time there was an RSD shill who commented "what the fuck is this shit" on several of my posts, which made me chuckle as it was precisely the kind of fake "alpha" posturing a guy like RSD's Jeffy promotes. The more eloquent trolls and shills I addressed in the comment section, which led to some hilarious exchanges.

Now that I occasionally tackle some topics that are more serious than making fun of PUAs who don't get laid, I seem to attract a much different kind of troll. A shining example is "Peter" who claims that Muslims are more "alpha" than German men and thus get all ze German women. His comment originally appeared on my brief post on the main cast of the TV show Entourage.

Random thought: Are Vinnie and his boys from Entourage betas?

After some potentially depressing posts on Muslim terrorism in Germany, it's time for something more light-hearted. I recently began re-watching Entourage. When I first watched it, I liked it because it was one of the very few TV shows where guys are not depicted as complete idiots. Even Johnny Drama who is depicted as quite an idiot is more resourceful than the typical emasculated male in contemporary TV. This show is often mentioned in the "community" because it is allegedly focused on pickup, which is not true at all. Vinnie gets laid because he is a Hollywood A-lister, chicks throw himself a him. His friends get laid because of him.  There is not much of value in this show if you think you would "learn" something with regards to interactions with women. Entourage provides you with plenty of examples of what not to do, though.

The Religion of Peace, Islam, culturally enriches Germany four times in one week --- this is what the politicians say

I thought that having three Muslims in one week go haywire in Germany was bad enough. Little did I know that while I was writing my article In case you consider moving to Germany yet another Muslim demonstrated that Islam is the religion of peace, and blew himself up. He killed himself and injured 15. Germany is indeed progressing. This was the first suicide bombing in Germany ever, and the fourth Muslim terrorist attack in Germany in one week, which is another record. I wonder what the next 'firsts' of our Muslim friends will be. I sense an enormous untapped potential.

In case you consider moving to Germany

Last year a guy from Eastern Europe emailed me, asking whether I think moving to Germany was a good idea. Long story short, the wrote he was an electrical engineer, two degrees, some job experience, and even knew some German. My short answer was a "no, most certainly not". Note that this was before those utterly brain-dead decisions regarding unrestrained mass immigration were made by the German political elite in 2015. These days, the answer would be more along the lines of "Are you fucking crazy?"

Let's paint in broad strokes: I think coming to Germany is only an attractive proposition if you lack any perspective back home, lack education and ambition, and want to live a life at subsistence level paid by the German taxpayer, possibly supplemented by some income from dealing drugs. In Berlin, politicians don't even bat an eye shelling out a few million Euros so that illegal immigrants can squat buildings. If your ambitions are that low, you would be in fantastic company because there are millions of you around already. The vast majority of the left likewise lives off handouts, so in that case, you really are all the same. Germany is going down the toilet faster than Sweden, but it will probably be another 20 to 30 years until it has reached shit hole levels.

A female commenter disagrees that men age slower than women

This is a brief post for a nice chuckle. Moments ago, an allegedly female anonymous commenter left the following on my 2013 post Why should it be "creepy" if an older guy takes a young woman? 

As a woman in her early 20s I can honestly say that it is definitely much more creepy and gross when an older guys tries to hit on me. Younger guys are generally fitter and I can relate to them more. When I see older guys trying to go after younger women my first thought is "player." Also I disagree that men age slower... I know several women who are several years OLDER than their partner and before I found out their age, I thought all of the women were actually younger than their partners. I guess its all a matter of experience and personal opinion, but I think when women say they like "older men" they usually mean just a few years older, not 15+ years older.

Let's make this brief:

This is why some guys get nowhere

There are very few blogs I follow, but there are a few I skim occasionally. In the latter category is a blog called Wall Street Playboys. Some of the posts made my bullshit sensor overheat, though, due to the frequently displayed naivety and some rather obvious contradictions. For instance, according to their online personae they are "ballers" and can afford to spend half the year abroad. On the other hand, they warn people that living it up in some South American cities can be expensive, which is why you should "pre-game", i.e. drink at your place. Baller enough to maintain two residences, but when it comes to drinks you suddenly need to watch where your benjamins go? But let's ignore that for now.

More interesting than some of their articles are the comments they are getting, albeit it is not always easy to tell whether people post some nonsense in an attempt to bust the balls of the Wall St. Playboys, or whether they are serious. Here is one example that is very relevant to pickup (side note: there is quite some overlap between the mindset needed to become financially stable and having a decent sex life, but that may be a topic for another day).

Grey Zone Girls

Today there was a new comment by "ERJAN" on my blog post An RSD Escape Story, which was a submission from C. It is an issue I have discussed before, but it is an important one, so it can't hurt to discuss it again. So, let's get right to it:
hey, check out the passage from a great book "models:attraction through honesty" by mark manson. This is by far the most discerning, exposing and explaining book about game!

i think the author gets it wrong! mark manson says there are 3 types of girls:
1.girls who are into you from start - aka green zone
2. girls who maybe into you if you show great personality and seduce them - aka grey zone
3. girls who are not into you at all - red zone.

in this book , the point of game is to bang girls from grey zone!

girls that into you from the beginning - are easy to get! the point of game is to show that you are attractive to all greyzone girls, potential leads. if your game is good you can bang more girls from this area.

ofcourse it is easy to fuck a girl who is into you - you escalate! but true game is about seducing girls who are not into you , but find you cool after you run game on them!

We've discussed Mark Manson before. Suffice it to say that there are quite a few guys among my followers who told me that it took them a while to realize that he is peddling "feel-good" advice instead of dishing out some harsh truths. Well, once you are past needing to feel good about your insufficiencies and got ready for some realistic dating advice, check out my material instead.

Female "Billionaire" Lynn Tilton, female role model (for females) par excellence

An anonymous reader recently got torn a new one in the discussion that followed my post Patriarchy or Insignificance?. She (?) made the following rather amusing statement:
There are also women are a more "masculine" psychologically and are very high achievers and bad-asses (one billionaire Lynn Tilton comes to mind). They are a minority but they are out there, the exception disproves the rule.
Exceptions prove the rule, but you can't expect that a cuck/lefty/feminist knows anything about statistics. Anyway, I was not familiar with Lynn Tilton, but I had the strong suspicion that if she really was a self-made billionaire, we would all be very familiar with her name. Just recall how battalions of cucks and feminists have written masturbatory articles on Elizabeth Holmes for years -- until it emerged that she was a complete and utter fraud. Noticing this discrepancy, I spent a negligible amount of time on a search machine that is not called Google, which quickly led to some highly amusing reading.

Patriarchy or Insignificance?

This just popped up in my Facebook feed: the guitarist of a historically unimportant punk band named The Slits (this is about as creative as calling your all-chick band Hole) was upset because a text in an exhibition mentioned The Sex Pistols, The Clash and the Buzzcocks, but not hers, so she took matters in her own hands:

This is what happens to Beta Males on Tinder

Women have fully taken their dating game to Tinder, i.e. get attention from losers, hope that some hot stud wants to bang them, and extract money as well as services out of the "bottom 90%" of men. This is apparently how a rather unattractive woman close to 50 views the world. Surprisingly, there is no shortage of chumps.

Let's quote the NY Post:
When Fiona Bloom needed an air conditioner installed in her Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, apartment three weeks ago, she went on Tinder.

The 47-year-old, who has been dating in NYC for the past 20 years, decided to put the app to use after being repeatedly disappointed by the city’s dating pool. “I’ve tried speed dating and all the dating apps, but every time I put my real age, all I get are idiots and losers,” Bloom, a publicist, tells The Post. “I figured, why not make them useful and have them help me around the house?”

Exercise: Why is this married guy fucked?

One issue I find fascinating is broken men and the excuses they make for perpetuating their misery. As such, time spent on r/marriage forum on Reddit tends to be time well-spent. What is even more shocking, though, is how other broken men (and parasitical women) are not only unwilling and unable to help, but instead give those brainwashed spineless men another beating.

Here's a funny one: guy has a lazy wife who doesn't want to work; they can't afford where they live and are close to financial ruin. Keep this summary in mind as you skim the comments. It's amusing, and sad at the same time, that the miserable guy isn't even upfront with how shitty his situation is. Of course, one has to think of the women!

PUAs and Entrepreneurship

On the recent post on  Reader Comment: Opinion on BradP reader MacDragard left the following note:
Aaron, what is your take on the recent shift of many of the big names in the PUA community shifting their focus to "entrepreneurship" training? I know it has been going on for a while now in the form of ex-PUA's shifting their focus to self-help and David DeAngelo went back to being Eban Pagan, but now RSD is really starting to go the whole entrepreneur skills route and now we have all these psudeo-entrepreneurs popping up that know everything about marketing but close to nothing about how to read and interpret financial data. It's like MLM without the opportunity to get paid and instead paying thousands of dollars more for training.

I was aware of "Eben Pagan's" move towards promoting pseudo-business courses, and I was occasionally pointed towards one or the other thread on the RSD form for laughs where some deluded moron talked about their great business plans, which tended to be modifications of putting a lemonade stand next to a busy road and dreaming of all the money flowing in because, obviously, everybody is a potential buyer.

What if you are attracted to all types of women?

An anonymous reader asked the following question in the current Open Thread:

I've read both your books: Minimal Game and Club Game. You suggest to pick a target market for women and dress yourself to attract them. However, what if you don't have a type of a woman in mind? What if you're attracted to all types?
Can you see what the issue here is?

Staying in shape while travelling

A reader asked, in The Open Thread: May 2016:

Does any of you guys have experience with staying in shape while holding a job that includes a lot of travelling?

I'm really into strength training. Kind of need it to stay sane. That goes along with a good diet (meaning I'm (pre)cooking 99% of my meals).

Now I got offered a well payed position as a consultant which requires up to 40% travelling. Has one of you guys been able to follow a strength training program while travelling alone?



Since the entire work week consists of 100%, 40% means two days on the road. If your company sends you somewhere else via train or plane, and you have to travel the day before, those two days may easily cost you four days. Let's say you're sent off on Wednesday, after work. You catch a plane, sleep at a hotel, and work for two days at a client's site. You travel back on Friday. It's not easy to hit your fitness goals given those constraints. In fact, you will have to compromise.

Reader Comment: Opinion on BradP

I don't bother much exposing PUAs these days since the damage has been done and the old scene almost completely imploded. Any PUA that is still around is trying to position himself as a life coach of sorts. The old anti-PUA posts on this blog still get some traffic, though. Quite recently, "Trageliv" left a comment on BradP, I'm onto you!Have a look. One issue I have not previously talked much about, but which I have noticed, is that PUAs seem to exploit, deliberately or accidentally, exploit certain personality traits. That reader, for instance, seemed to have been trapped in a "cult" due to a certain void in his life. After all, you don't start looking up to some "guru" for answers if your life is going well. The original post follows. Feel free to comment below.

Brad P definitely engages in fraudulent behavior.

The newsletters are being written by someone else, but signed Brad P - fraudulent (source: one of the coaches). After knowing this is Brad Ps character, who knows if it's even Brad P that has been posting on the forum?

After being named the worlds #1 PUA by some organization back in 2007 - 9 years ago ! - he still uses it in marketing - perhaps not directly fraudulent but shady. Definitely creepy and self-boosting. The danger is a lot of people on the forum actually think brad p is the #1 PUA in the world. I did too. But the only source I've heard this from is himself.

How to get started with thinking for yourself

An anonymous reader left the following question on the current Open Thread:

After reading your blog and its comments, you seem very skilled at debating It's honestly fun to read your posts here because your points are logical and explained well.

It looks as if everyone who attacks your points comes across as juvenile by getting off topic or misconstruing your points entirely.

So I was wondering, how'd you get so good and do you have any recommendations (books, tips, etc.) that would help someone get better at debating?

Here is my reply, which I post on the main blog since others may find it useful as well.

The Real and Pretend Age of Women in Online Dating

Part of my Tinder research was about the age claims women make. To give more of a hint: I recently received a manuscript on a guide on how to effectively meet women on Tinder, which someone wanted to get feedback on. One of the statements in that text was that women tend to manipulate their age in two ways:

- some younger women may increase their age in order to appeal to older guys
- quite a few older women may decrease their age in order to deceive potential suitors

On Tinder: "31. Married. Three children. (Just kidding!)"

I recently signed up for Tinder, strictly for research purposes (this is no joke; maybe there will be some news in that regard sometime soon). As I was swiping around, mostly in the "nope" direction, to be honest, I made some rather curious observations. The most striking one was that there are a ton of older women (27+) on that app. Even more striking was that many of them seemed blissfully unaware of biology. Some had cute emotional messages like that they are sick of "so-called men who only want to have fun" in their profile. Tinder seems to be more of a regular dating app these days anyway, so it's not quite so absurd that they are looking for more than a hookup, even though they may not find it.

Following up on my post on a line from Grease, I would like to point out something else that is much more relevant to guys who don't get anywhere with women: you can change the way you look! In Grease there is a nice example with the character of Daisy Dee who transforms a little angel into a bit of a dirty whore, looks-wise.

Here is the before:

Wisdom for women from the 1978 movie Grease

I recently watched Grease on Blu-ray. This movie was released in 1978. Thus, it is the product of a time long past. One particular line stood out for me, but not in context, but because you most likely would not hear something similar in a modern movie.

Coming Up: A lengthy interview conducted by Simple Guy Skills

In the very near future, Mitchel from SimpleGuySkills.com will post an interview with me. I'll let you know once it is online. We go beyond discussing picking up chicks and instead cover a wider range of topics. Look forward to it!

Are Condoms only for Betas?

While we were discussing whore mongering the other day, someone remarked that there is the risk of contracting STDs. I strongly believe that the risk of contracting an STD from a proper professional, i.e. not a bargain basement hooker who turns tricks to finance her drug habit, is much lower than catching something from a regular woman. An elite whore lives by her reputation. In fact, just rude behavior is something you should not expect very much, based on the fact that clients frequent whore monger forums to exchange notes. Treat one client like crap, and chances are that Helen High-Class Hooker will lose some business. I bet that just the rumor that escort X has given you an STD would have serious consequences. Thus, it is in their best interest to always use protection.

[German] Rezension: Kolja Bonke - Film Riss 2: Buenos Aires

Kolja Bonke hat inzwischen Band 2 seiner nicht ausschliesslich auf wirklichen Begebenheiten fussenden Film Riss-Trilogie vorgelegt. Teil 1 war ein unterhaltsamer Einblick in das nicht immer geradlinig verlaufende Leben eines Datingcoaches lieferte, das so gar nicht gaengigen Klischevorstellungen entsprechen wollte:  Liebeskummer, Auseinandersetzungen mit Halbstarken nicht-deutscher Herkunft, aber natuerlich auch Begehungen von Studentenwohnheimen fanden ihren Platz.

In Film Riss 2: Buenos Aires treffen wir den Protagonisten in einer Situation, die auch aus einem Tarantino stammen koennte, so in etwa Jason Statham und Hank Chinaski in einem, der mit Handschellen an einen Heizkoerper gekettet aufwacht, und ihm daemmert, dass er sich in seinen Scharmuetzeln mit der Frankfurter Unterwelt womoeglich etwas uebernommen hat.

Paying for whores is not a loser activity

Little seems to piss off feminists more than prostitution, i.e. women overtly trading sex for money. Let's not get into the issue of sex trafficking. From what I can tell, with what I know of that industry, you normally have women making a deliberate choice to whore themselves out. Particularly in the higher-class sector I don't believe for even a second that the women are "forced" or "exploited". Instead, they charge a few hundred bucks, or a couple thou' if they are famous. Also, there are plenty of stories floating around of whores who refused to have sex with some clients. That doesn't really fit the exploitation narrative, it seems.

An interesting remark Lucretius Carus made on this blog some time ago was that you are rewarding a whore twice: you fuck her, and you pay her money. However, think of if from a different perspective: you pay for a service, and that's it. If you have qualms about paying whores, or can't afford them, but you still want to have sex regularly, your best bet it entering a relationship. Yet, the arrangement of maintaining a relationship just for sex must be one of the most debilitating experiences a man can have. If all you want is sex, and you need to spend time, money and attention on a girlfriend you only keep around because you can't pull chicks on the regular or don't want to pay for whores, your deal is unbelievably bad, even if you put a low monetary value on your time. Compared to that, I consider it rather "alpha" to just pay for the kind of service you desire. Yes, Lucretius Carus is right that she gets money and sex. However, you get sex and convenience, because paying for one hour with a whore also frees many hours you would have to invest otherwise, either for picking up chicks, or for relationship maintenance.

Beauty vs The Glow of Youth

Before the MGTOW movement gained a significant foothold online, most men tended to speak in an obsequious manner about women. In fact, it used to be a more or less uncontested view in the mainstream that even aged women had "dignity" and still looked beautiful --- in stark contrast to reality, which has girls mature faster than boys, and women age at a dramatically accelerated pace, compared to men.

Video: Why Women Destroy Nations

A friend of mine just sent me a video that should be of interest for the audience of this blog as well:


Have a look and let me know what you think in the comments below. This might lead to some good discussions.

Male/Female ratios in Europe

An anonymous reader posted a link to sex ratios in Europe. The data is from 2011, so it's not entirely up-to-date, but it is interesting nonetheless:



I am hardly an expert on the demographics of all European countries, but there are some observations and an explanation that is possibly generally valid. Note how East Germany suffers a deficit of women almost everywhere, with one exception: Berlin. The North of Sweden, a cold and dark place, is likewise missing women. Further, in England we see a situation not quite unlike Eastern Germany: women flock to the prosperous South East.

Check out Sonny's series on the PUA business

Despite my most recent article on Roosh, I don't intend to spend too much time on bashing PUAs. However, for a fresh take on that topic, check out Sonny's series "The PUA Industry Revealed". I particularly liked his post on in-field videos. Have a look around his site as well. It's geared towards younger guys, though, but if you dig around a bit you'll probably find a few posts you like.

Roosh is not as big a loser as the Daily Mail claims

I never thought that I would publicly defend Roosh, but this post will amount to at least a partial defense of him. What happened was that the Daily Mail recently posted a scathing article in which Roosh was ridiculed and depicted as a loser. Some people sent me gleeful emails pointing me to the Daily Mail article Not so cool now! Pro-rape pick-up artist pictured in a sweat-stained T-shirt at the door of his mother's home (where he lives in the BASEMENT!). Just look at it:


This article is nothing but a hatchet job, though. Let's just get one thing out of the way first: I don't know about Roosh's statements about legalizing rape. If he indeed wrote that it should be legal to rape women on private property, he may want to get his head checked. I do know that he wrote that he raped several women. Whether this is true is another story. It's quite possible that he only makes such statements in order to appeal to his sexually frustrated audience, and to gain notoriety.

Mass Migration, Divorce Courts, and the Systematic Subjugation of Betas (Part II)

In part I of this article we took a look at how 'betas'. in countries that are being flooded by unskilled illegal immigrants. are going to pay through the nose in order to ensure that the newly arrived and rapidly expanding minority will have their basic needs met. In fact, in many instances they are treated better than the natives. For instance, in Sweden they have the right to free dental care, which natives only have until they turn 18. In Germany they are financially better off than people living off welfare, and get other benefits on top, like free public transport. Just think of everything people were told that there was no money available for: health care, kindergartens, schools, universities, infrastructure, pensions. Yet, now all of a sudden Germany now apparently has billions available to shelter, clothe, and feed about one million illegal migrants who arrived in 2015, and the next million is expected to arrive this year.

"So what's the strategy here? Pretend you're not a nerd?"

This is a follow up to the post "Reader Question: How does a nerdy introvert meet hot women?", which led to a pretty good discussion. Unfortunately, my original suspicion only got reaffirmed, namely that the person asking this question is only looking for a quick fix. Instead of trying to change himself, so that people around him would react differently to him, he seems to have a hard time letting go of the idea that with a few cosmetic fixes all problems will be gone. This was perfectly captured in reader "smashthestate" asking,

"So what's the strategy here? Pretend you're not a nerd?"

Let that sink in for a moment, as it points toward a very fundamental issue.
