After the bestselling.
Ian Willms for BuzzFeed News. Max, you might recall, writes a story about convincing a girl to have anal sex and tapes it without her consent. Instead of just being anecdotal, something to envy, The Game suggested you could learn the seduction lifestyle and live it yourself. The book, which followed Mystery after his move from Toronto to Hollywood, catapulted the pickup artist to fame and helped spread his gospel to the masses. After the success of its release, Mystery expanded his business, and eventually got a show on VH1 called The Pickup Artist where he taught hapless men how to seduce women for two seasons.
It blew my mind and started practicing "out in the field" with girls I knew and would meet and for the main part, the first book served as a good general guideline to meeting women that you want and successfully getting them interested in you, and then taking it from there.
As the book says, you can learn all the stuff there is in the book, but in order to understand how to work as well as getting good at game, you have to go out there and do it. All the good PUAs out there right now got good because they weren't afraid to fail, and I had to stomach my pride before I started getting consistent results. I wouldn't change a thing now because it's such an awesome feeling choosing which girl you want to meet.
I got the second book with so much excitement and expectation because I feel like his first book improved my game and social life so much. Man, was I disappointed! He opens up the book talking about his entourage and his super-mansion and basically any other material things he can mention in order to show off that he "made it. Then, finally he starts mentioning a student who comes for a private one-on-one instruction but not before putting in a shameless commercial plug for his services , and then starts to just touch upon the things that made his first book so great.
When he finally starts talking about "the Mystery Method" and the guidelines to seduce a girl, it's very badly worded and scattered all over the book, making it very hard to understand.
It's thrown in between how much stuff he owns and what women he banged last week, making his teachings seem cheap and disparaging. What you can piece together are basically regurgitations of his first book, aside from some different names and updates, but basically nothing new.
After a few chapters, it's pretty clear as the same style of writing is prevalent throughout the whole book. He's officially now a sellout. It's unfortunate because I got good at game because of him. He tries to present as Hollywood stupid hat, a lot of jewelry , but he has a recognizable Ontario accent, which is comforting to my local ear.
He makes eye contact and never interrupts me. My bar is low, but he clears it.
He shows me his empty hands and grins. He smiles, and I do too. Do it again, I think. Tell me, what do you have inside that would make me want to know you as more than a mere face in the crowd? Eventually, kiss her, and get her number. To be clear, The Game did not invent pickup artistry or dating services for men or women. Ross Jeffries, who refused to answer any personal questions about himself, including how old he is and his marital status, is the self-described godfather of pickup.
Mystery still offers weekend boot camps, but he also provides a year-long mentorship program , with only a few slots available to ensure maximum intimacy between client and artist.
His work has largely taken him overseas, to places like the UK and Helsinki and Rio. Want to truly learn to think like a master PUA?
They live in London with their mother. If I were to be misogynistic, I would get hammered down by them. His seminars, he says, are about helping men get more dates and better dates, which might consequently fix a lot of their confidence and self-esteem issues. A person will have someone in their corner to fight the world with. It should be simple enough, the act of teaching men how to get a girlfriend, but the way in which pickup artists have taught the skill perpetuates long-standing and inequitable norms about dating and gender.
All those kinds of ideas get caught up with the idea of simply becoming more skilled or more confident talking to women.
Much of The Game is about Strauss feeling insignificant, and his attempts to build himself up through dating. The seduction training PUAs offer is a way to get some form of control in an intimate space. Mystery ducks my questions by saying he has gay friends. Take, for example, something Strauss says Mystery told him in a hot tub.
Then you take her hand and put it on your balls. Then you put your finger on your dick and put a little precum on it, and put your finger in her mouth.
That is a very intimate set of compliances. Sorry for that.
When Mystery and I meet a few weeks after our first call in a quiet pub in downtown Toronto, he brings his friend and fellow PUA, Colgate. Colgate started working with Mystery when he was just 14 years old. Now 28, Colgate continues to work side by side with Mystery on his boot camps.
The weekend before we met, they were hosting one in Toronto, where I live, but Colgate refused to let me attend in order to protect the participants.
Mystery ads that their Airbnb only had four chairs. Having Colgate and Mystery side by side creates a fascinating juxtaposition between what picking up women used to be and what it's morphed into now. Mystery was all about pomp; Colgate has the gift of the gab. There is still, unquestionably, an element of manipulation involved.
Colgate, however, is the most aggressively woke guy I have met in a long time. He answers my questions about sexism in the industry directly, behaving like the quintessential male feminist.
Colgate makes me even more anxious than Mystery. At least Mystery spent his career being honest about who he was and what he was trying to do: He would teach you how to fuck a lot of women. Colgate, meanwhile, is an actor.
Woke seduction is different only because it pretends to be kinder, but the seduction work coming from Colgate and Mystery still relies on external affirmation from women. How many times have you matched with someone on Tinder and struggled to think of a perfect opening salvo?
