Occasionally these fights have gotten personal, taking away what little credibility this community had in the eyes of many.
Regardless of what you feel about pickup artists and their community, The Game is a fascinating window into their world.
Moving away from this philosophy only slightly, Strauss has opened what he calls “The first online school for self-improvement and attraction”, though it is easy to imagine this “school” as just the next step for pickup artists and their students – why not gather all of your “method” teachings into easy-to-disseminate lectures and packages so that men don’t mind paying “tuition” to learn from you.
And packaging this material as a ‘school’ is an equally sneaky way to convince men that this information is valuable and necessary.
In fact, Neil Strauss’ first method, known as Annihilation Method, was taught to five men in Strauss home over a long weekend in 2005.
This approach flies right in the face of the methods of men like Ross Jeffries or Doc Love, men who make their material highly available, even leaking large portions of it for free to men who know how to run a search engine.
This group of students went on to feature some stars of its own, including one student who released the controversial “How to Fuck Strippers” book in 2007.
This emphasis placed on releasing information to a small amount of consumers is a unique idea in the world in which Neil Strauss operates.
To top it off, Neil Strauss can list more than a few celebrity girlfriends to his credit, including the drummer from Courtney Love’s band The Chelsea.
It’s the culmination of 13 years of education and should be celebrated to the fullest extent.
I am so lucky to not only help you in this celebration, but to provide you an unparalleled experience you won’t find anywhere else in Billings.
This is less method than psychology, and it is a fact that a person’s position in society can impact their attractiveness.
In fact, most of Strauss’ method which has been made public appears to skirt the line between a basic understanding of social psychology (“celebrities have routines to attract and deflect women akin to those found in the seduction community” – no kidding) and a New Age emphasis on basic hypnosis and the power of language.
