Fake Virgins On The Upswing?

August 18, 2010 by  
Filed under Rants & Reviews

Now, this is just too crazy for words…

Add a new one to the list: fake virgins.

A growing number of Chinese women — mostly in their 20s and about to get married — are opting for a surgical procedure called “hymen restoration,” which returns the hymen to its condition before it was ruptured, which typically occurs during first sexual contact but can also happen while playing sports or doing other strenuous activities.

Even as China has flung open its doors to the West and modernized, a deeply conservative and chauvinistic attitude persists. Many men, including white-collar professionals, say they want to marry a virgin. And increasingly liberated Chinese women have found a way to oblige them.

“We can fix it so everything is perfect, so the men can believe they are marrying virgins,” said Zhou Hong, a physician and director of gynecology at the Beijing Wuzhou Women’s Hospital. “We don’t advertise it; we don’t publicize it.”

Let me ask you:  What’s the benefit of marrying a woman who’s a virgin?  I mean, honestly.  It’s not like the sex is gonna FEEL any different, and women who’ve never had sex before really aren’t all that good at it.  So what exactly is the appeal here?

Personally, I’d rather marry a liberated, experienced woman who knows what she’s doing, knows what she likes, and is able to actually enjoy herself in bed rather than dealing with an inexperienced lover who may eventually decide to “step outside the marriage” because she feels the need to experience more than her husband has to offer.

But aside from that, seeing women actually trying to revert back to “virgin” status just to get married… that’s just ridiculous.  I mean, I am in no ways a feminist, but surely that can’t be a healthy thing to do for women in society.  Shouldn’t we be ENCOURAGING women to have sex instead of keeping their legs locked?  Seems to me everyone would be much happier if this whole “virgin” myth was just done away with entirely.

Ovulating Women Unconsciously Buy Sexier Clothing to Outdo Attractive Women

August 12, 2010 by  
Filed under Rants & Reviews

The University Of Minnesota just released a new study that reveals women who are ovulating are more likely to dress provocatively – not to attract men, but to outdo other women!

Ovulating women unconsciously buy sexier clothes, says new research from the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management. The study finds that ovulating women unconsciously dress to impress — doing so not to impress men, but to outdo rival women during the handful of days each month when they are ovulating.

“The desire for women at peak fertility to unconsciously choose products that enhance appearance is driven by a desire to outdo attractive rival women,” says Kristina Durante, a post-doctoral fellow at the Carlson School. “If you look more desirable than your competition, you are more likely to stand out.”

This research, forthcoming in the Journal of Consumer Research, provides some of the first evidence of how, why, and when consumer behavior is influenced by hormonal factors. Durante and co-authors focused their predictions on the fact that competition for a suitable partner would be influenced by a woman’s fertility status.

“We found that, when ovulating, women chose sexier fashion products when thinking about other attractive, local but not distant women,” says Durante. “If you are in New York, a woman who lives in LA isn’t going to be seen as competition.”

Although the end result is to attract the best romantic partner available, Durante’s research found that ovulating women’s choice of dress is motivated by the other women in their environment. “In order to entice a desirable mate, a woman needs to assess the attractiveness of other women in her local environment to determine how eye-catching she needs to be to snare a good man,” Durante says.

I guess that explains why so many PUAs have had experiences of picking up hot chicks, only to have them unexpectedly “pull away” at the last minute.  In case you haven’t been there, here’s the scenerio:

You go out to a bar or club, find a super-hot girl, do your work, get her attracted to you, start making out and stuff – its on.  You know it.  She knows it.  And yet, at the last minute, she puts the breaks on things.

Some guys might wonder what they did wrong, when in fact – they did NOTHING wrong.  That pesky Aunt Flo was around and reared her ugly head.  So why was a girl on her period out and about?  According to this study, not to hook up with you, but to show up other girls!  lol.  I guess that’s just more proof that women are koo-koo!

AFC Adam Bootcamp Review – Austin, August 2010

FunTimes over at puaforums.com posted a brief review of the bootcamp he took with AFC Adam this month:

FunTimes writes:

I attended this bootcamp in Austin and am writing a series of posts to review it and to go over some field reports from during it on my blog.  I don’t want to spam so I won’t repost the full text here, but I thought I would point them out in case anyone is curious what Adam’s bootcamp is like.

Attending the bootcamp was a very difficult decision for me to make to attend the bootcamp because my finances are extremely tight right now; doing so basically forced me to enter credit card debt for the first time in my life.

However I have absolutely no regrets now. It was a life changing experience for me; I underwent some kind of transformation in those three days that has taken me from having no game at all to being confident, smooth, and capable of pick up. I am still a newbie, but I feel like I know the rules of the game now. All that is left is practice, practice practice.

To give you an idea of my progress I started the boot camp with extreme social anxiety (I could push myself to approach, but only perhaps 2-3 times per night) and no conversation skills whatsoever. I would generally open with jealous-ex and then peter out into awkward land. Post-bootcamp I have dates lined up with a girl I met during the in-field, the cute intern at work I have been secretly drooling over for the last month, and have started to successfully break down the ‘LJBF’ zone of one of my previous failures.

I tried to find the more detailed write-up of FunTime’s review because it sounds like he really got a lot out of it, but the moderator on the forum took down the link.  If anyone knows where to find this, email me.

Regardless, there is a REASON why AFC Adam is the #1 PUA in the world, and his bootcamps are just flat-out awesome. They remind me of the glory days of the Mystery Method bootcamps, only with less eyeliner and more guys getting laid.  But yeah, Adam’s students have an insane success rate.  Anyone who’s thinking about taking a bootcamp should definitely consider taking Adam’s first.

Do Women Want More Sex Than You Think?

Filed under Rants & Reviews

A new poll out there shows that women might want more sex than previously believed.  The results of the poll were:

Men
32% every day
29% three times a week
18% three times a day
9% every time you sleep with your significant other
7% twice a week
3% once a week
1% once a month
1% twice a month


Women

27% three times a week
25% every day
13% every time you sleep with your significant other
10% twice a week
9% three times a day
8% once a week
5% once a month
3% twice a month

Frankly, I think women who want more sex are a-okay in my book.  But the real question is – where do the 27% of women who want sex 3 times a week hang out??? lol.

The Pick Up Artist 2, Ep. 2 Recap: I Like Pickle-Juice

October 24, 2008 by  
Filed under Rants & Reviews

Warning:  This Recap Contains Spoilers!

Hey there boys and girls, its time for yet another fun-filled recap of VH1′s The Pick Up Artist!  So dust off your over-sized goggles and put on your sleeveless fur-lined vests, its time to waste yet another hour of your life watching geeks embarrass themselves and strike out with chicks.

We start the episode with the remaining contestants in shocked disbelief that Fat Gay Alex got his ample posterior kicked off the show.  Apparently, none of the guys have actually SEEN the first season, and know that people get eliminated from the mansion – especially if they are:  fat, gay, old, or a race other than white.

Matt Powers is so upset, he says “Its going to be hard to sleep tonight.”  Funny, I thought it’d be hard to sleep with Fat Gay Alex prowling around the bunkbeds in the dark, looking for unsuspecting nerds to molest.  But what do I know?

The next day, the group is whisked away to a “secret location” (which looks disturbingly like a low-rent porno store in the Valley).  They’re at a mysterious “Italian Club,” with Mystery, Matador, and Tara waiting out front, along with a mysterious looking doorman.

Simeon starts salivating, saying he thinks they’ve been whisked away to a STRIP CLUB, and then starts masturbating furiously.  Little does he know that no stripper would be up in the daytime to hang out with a bunch of geeks with no money – but hey, let the guy dream.

Mystery is looking to start helping the guys build their confidence when talking to women.  So for their first reward challenge (i.e. the challenge where you get Tara to do something demeaning afterward) the guys get to spend quality time with some “quality ladies.”

Hmmmm.  In the first season, a line like that was followed by storytime with a class full of first-grade girls.  I’m thinking this year they may have put a twist on it and gone with geriatrics.  Will I be proven correct?

Asian Brian is hoping to meet some strippers, club girls, or FREAKS.  Either way, he’s so excited his afro starts steaming.

So the challenge is to approach some women and have a conversation.  Simple, right? The guy who makes the best impression wins a “secret accessory” from Mystery’s private collection, and a special tutoring session on how to use it.  Though, I’m sure most of these contestants already know how to use ruphies.

The Pick Up Artist Season 2 Ep 1 Recap: Bling Bling

SPOILER ALERT:  This recap contains spoilers for the first episode of the Pick Up Artist 2

Vh1's The Pick Up Artist Returns

Well, another year has gone by, which means its time for VH1 to grace the airwaves with yet another season of The Pick Up Artist – starring the one and only Mystery.

Yes, just when you thought it was safe to watch VH1 again, the network that has brought us such cultural icons as Flava Flav and evil Dustin Diamond, is now treating us to another 8 episodes of geeks getting different colored pendants for not embarrassing themselves in front of women.  Huzzah!

The show starts off by reminding everyone about how Mystery is the world’s greatest pick up artist (and snazziest dresser!), telling us about how big of a geek he used to be by showing pictures of him holding a plastic spoon.  Yes, it seems VH1′s definition of “loser who can’t get laid” is synonymous with guys who allow themselves to be photographed holding plastic cutlery.

Then we’re reminded of our favorite trainwrecks from last season – Kosmo, Brady, Joe D, Gay Joe, Spoon, Pradeep, Old Dude, and geeky guy who’s name I can’t remember – and how Mystery “helped” them.  Now that Kosmo is a real Pick Up Artist, he’s been forced to shave his head, wear affliction t-shirts, and share with Mystery’s students the lessons he learned from living with Gay Joe the first season…

“Just open your mouth, don’t be afraid to experiment,” says Kosmo.  (Yeah, people paid $2,000 to hear that bit of advice.)

Now that the recap’s over, its time to prepare ourselves for a new season of the Pick Up Artist, where the challenge is even BIGGER (i.e. the contestants are geekier, gayer, uglier, and asianer).  Also, I’m sure the challenge had a little to do with the fact that women are now on guard for hidden camera pick ups.  But whatever.

Matador is back as Mystery’s wingman, sporting a new beard and a greasier wig.  J-Dog is out, and now Tara is in, so she gets to bring her milkshake to the yard every episode now.  Whether or not she’ll be forced to tongue-down the contestants is still up in the air, but we shall see.

What makes Tara qualified to teach guys how to meet women?  “I’m a woman!” she exclaims.  Yay.  So’s my mom, but that doesn’t mean her advice for getting chicks is any good.  Where’s that other girl from the first season?  She was way hotter than Tara and didn’t talk as much.  Give her the wingwoman spot, fer cryin’ out loud.

Anyway, cue the show intro, and its time to start another season of awkwardness on the Pick Up Artist. Read more

Women Actually WANT To Be Housewives

August 29, 2008 by  
Filed under Rants & Reviews

I stumbled upon an interesting article about what men want women to be, and how women pretty much agree with it…

It was the feminist dream of the 1960s – a world in which men and women share the load equally.

But it seems the fairer sex has all but abandoned the struggle. According to research published today, most men want a traditional wife – and women are often only too happy to oblige.

In turn, it claims that the husband women most desire is a ‘retrosexual’ – meaning they are more hunter gatherer than a ‘metrosexual’ stay-at-home father.

More than 1,500 adults were asked about the attributes that they ‘most valued’ in a spouse or partner. Their answers could have been taken from a manual to happy married life in the 1950s.

At the top of the men’s list was ‘taking care of the home’, followed by cooking, cleaning and great parenting.

Only 16 per cent said they value ‘financial stability’ in a woman – which means most men put domestic bliss above a wife who calls the shots in the boardroom.

The research from the Yorkshire Building Society found many women are making equally conventional choices.

Nearly 40 per cent said ‘financial stability’ is one of the most important qualities in their husband and they rank gardening as more important than an ability to cook or clean.

Tanya Jackson, corporate affairs manager at the building society, said: ‘A lot of women used to think they wanted a metrosexual man.

‘But then they realised they were fed up with a man who spent longer in the bathroom than they did.

‘Many women now feel they actually want a hunter-gatherer and they will look after their man in return.’

Figures from the Office for National Statistics bear out the claims. More than 2.1 million women say they do not work because they are ‘looking after their family or home’.

Only 193,000 men gave the same answer – a figure which has fallen by 6 per cent over the past year.

Wait a minute… you mean the feminist were WRONG??????  You mean women actually LIKE IT when a guy acts like a freakin’ guy instead of a gay dude?  They actually PREFER to stay at home and eat bon-bons while the husband goes out, works his ass off, and brings home the bacon???  That women LIKE IT when a guy steps up and takes care of them instead of having to go to an office wearing a pantsuit every day????

Shocker.

More proof that feminists are morons who just want to make everyone unhappy.

Tenmagnet Vs. Herbal – Fight To The Death!

August 25, 2008 by  
Filed under Rants & Reviews

You know, I often wonder what would happen if two PUAs actually got to fight each other.  Its fun to think about a Style vs. Mystery boxing match, or maybe Gunwitch vs. Sean “Busey” Messenger in a steel cage match.  But I never for the life of me thought it would actually happen…

Until now.

Tenmagnet writes:
Am I proud that I beat up a guy half my size? No.
Am I proud that I beat up a vegan? Hell YEAH!!

I often wonder how I get myself into these weird situations.

This summer, I went to Thailand for a few weeks, to chill out, hang with Sheriff, and get some writing done. While we were down there, we checked out Ko Phi Phi, and met up with two friends, Tynan and Todd (who write a blog called Life Nomadic).

You may know Tynan as “Herbal T” from the game. Aside from running his blog he’s also traveling around the world with little more than a schoolbag’s worth of material possessions. You see, Tynan is a free spirit, the kind of guy who’s always up for an adventure, even if it’s probably not a good idea – kinda like me.

So, when we found out that there was a bar on Phi Phi that gives you free drinks for fighting your friends – we knew something fun was bound to happen.

I’d like to say that at first, I had qualms about fighting a friend who’s about 40 lbs lighter than me, but in all honesty, I really didn’t have any moral problems with it. Besides, Tynan is all into this veganism and cross-fit and health stuff, wheras I’m a beer and red meat kinda guy who gave up on working out when he found out he could get girls without being in shape.

We’re also pretty much exactly the same height, and the same age, so you could say this fight was ultimate test of fastideous healthy fitness vs raw animal fed bloodthirsty violence.

Ok, I’m being melodramatic here. It really was never a fair fight – I took boxing lessons a few summers back too.

Anyway, just because I clearly outweighed my opponent, didn’t mean I wasn’t still scared of him. I was really concerned that he would take advantage of the fact I was out of shape, and tire me out before pummeling me with his little weakling arms in the third round, when I was too tired to defend properly.

Also, I got a little drunk beforehand, just to even things up.

So we got in the ring, and there were probably over a hundred people watching us in a dingy, sweaty little bar, with the sound of thai music playing over the hum of the rickety old cooling fans.

We were suited up with ratty old gloves and Olympic-style headgear, so we wouldn’t hurt one another too badly, and our boxing shorts were literally splattered with the blood of previous contestants.

I bounced around to warm up. I threw some kicks to intimidate my opponent. The referee called us to the center of the ring. We touched gloves and it was on.

One thing I didn’t realize about boxing is how EXHAUSTING it is. Literally 15 seconds into the first round, I was completely exhausted. It’s not even like boxing in the gym – when someone really wants to hit you, your body just turns on the furnace and won’t let up. You’re completely, blind exhausted, but your body won’t let you stop fighting.

It was fucking cool.

Tynan was keeping his guard up, and managed to bounce some hits off the side of my head, because I wasn’t holding my hands high enough. Headache city. I threw some punches and kept him off balance, but he managed to get me one right in the face. I got him too, and knocked him on his ass.

Finally, after three rounds, it was over. That was the longest ten minutes of my life! I had a bloody nose, but had managed to knock Tynan down a few times. My head was pounding from the four or five shots he’d managed to get in. Tynan isn’t just a cool guy, and a good friend, he’s a vicious little bugger!

I had won, and got a free “bucket” of dirty thai booze and red bull, which I could barely enjoy because I was dizzy and messed up from the fight. Tynan and I shook hands, congratulated one another, and tried to stop our heads from spinning.

Truly an awesome experience.

P.s. I have photos of the fight on my blog.

Paul Janka Accused Of Attempted Date Rape?

August 20, 2008 by  
Filed under News, Rants & Reviews

Yikes!

Here’s an article from the website Gawker.com about a girl who’s accusing Paul Janka of trying to force himself on her…

We’ve made fun of self-styled pickup artist and creepy sexual compulsive Paul Janka countless times: he’s slept with 146 (or so) women. He wrote an e-book layguide on how to get girls. He’s shopping an Entourage-type TV show to Showtime. However, he’s graduated from amusing obnoxiousness to distinctly unfunny sexual assault, according to Emily, a woman who went on a date with him. Paul doesn’t even dispute her claim that he grabbed her, pinned her down, tried to fingerfuck her, and shoved his tongue in her mouth. (She only got away after fighting and hitting him with an umbrella.) Her account, and Janka’s reply (she was on a date “under false pretenses,” he says), after the jump.

Okay, so I read the account over on Gawker (which seems to REALLY hate Paul Janka.  Did the guy bang the editor’s girl, or something?), and they make a big deal of PJ not disputing the girl’s story.  However, there are certain things that set off my Spider Sense about the girl’s recollection of what happened.

Now, I’m sure some of it is probably true.  It wouldn’t surprise me if Paul made some aggressive moves on the girl (that seems to be consistent with his style), but I seriously doubt that it was a “violent” and “tawdry” as it sounds.

From the way this girl’s account reads, its like she went to meet the guy with the idea already in her mind that she was going to douche all over him.  And as far as him assaulting her, I think there’s a fine line between being aggressive with a girl and being a crazed rapist.  It sounds to me like if PJ was really going to try and rape this girl, he had numerous chances to do it, but kept backing off because of her insistence.

Now, I wasn’t there, and this is probably going to devolve into a “he said / she said” deal, but it just seems to me like this girl was out to crucify Paul from the get-go (I mean, she rejected the guy until she found out he was a professional pick up artist, and THEN decided to go on a date with him.  Suspect?  Yeah.), so that makes me think that maybe things didn’t play out exactly as she recalls them.

Of course, in this society, we’re all trained to believe the girl first and shit all over the guy, even if he didn’t do anything wrong.  I don’t know if PJ really did all the things this girl claims – and if he did, he should be punished for it – but anyone who’s been in the game any amount of time can tell you: girls are crazy and they will do messed up shit to you for no good reason.

I think PJ might have a target on him because of his quazi-celebrity reputation.  He’d better watch his back.

What Causes Homosexuality?

August 13, 2008 by  
Filed under Rants & Reviews

I just got done reading a facinating article in the latest edition of Psychology Today, all about scientists who are studying the origin of homosexuality and what they believe causes people to be gay.  One interesting thing is that more is known about homosexuality in males than females because women’s sexuality is apparently more “fluid.”

You guys are really going to want to check out this article.  Here’s a snippit…

If there is one thing that has always seemed obvious about homosexuality, it’s that it just doesn’t make sense. Evolution favors traits that aid reproduction, and being gay clearly doesn’t do that. The existence of homosexuality amounts to a profound evolutionary mystery, since failing to pass on your genes means that your genetic fitness is a resounding zero. “Homosexuality is effectively like sterilization,” says psychobiologist Qazi Rahman of Queen Mary College in London. “You’d think evolution would get rid of it.” Yet as far as historians can tell, homosexuality has always been with us. So the question remains: If it’s such a disadvantage in the evolutionary rat race, why was it not selected into oblivion millennia ago?

Twentieth-century psychiatry had an answer for this Darwinian paradox: Homosexuality was not a biological trait at all but a psychological defect. It was a mistake, one that was always being created anew, in each generation, by bad parenting. Freud considered homosexuality a form of arrested development stamped on a child by a distant father or an overprotective mother. Homosexuality was even listed by the American Psychiatric Association as a mental disorder, and the idea that gays could and should be “cured” was widely accepted. But modern scientific research has not been kind to that idea. It turns out that parents of gay men are no better or worse than those of heterosexuals. And homosexual behavior is common in the animal kingdom, as well—among sheep, for instance. It arises naturally and does not seem to be a matter of aloof rams or overbearing ewes.

More is known about homosexuality in men than in women, whose sexuality appears more fluid. The consensus now is that people are “born gay,” as the title of a recent book by Rahman and British psychologist Glenn Wilson puts it. But for decades, researchers have sought to identify the mechanism that makes a person gay.

Its a long article, about six pages, but a really facinating read.  You can check it out by clicking here.

Have Women STARE At You…

So some Japanese company (typical) understands that a lot of people in the corporate world have very bad social skills.  So their solution?

Make a DVD of women staring at you.

Seriously.

Don’t believe me?  Go here.  They have a video of a woman doing nothing but STARE at you.

So to make people more social, they want people to sit in their home, in front of their TV, and stare at a woman who is staring back at them.

Anyone else have a problem with this?  Or is it just me?
