Pickup Artist Techniques “Debunked” By Frumpy Female Journalist

According to The Metro, you’re “unhealthy” and “bad” for trying to meet women

By Mike Haines

I was recently browsing a shit-tier UK clickbait site called Metro (don’t ask), when, lodged between articles with titles like “What it’s like to be an adult baby diaper lover” and “Sex expert says she ‘broke her vagina’ after using her vibrator rigorously”, I stumbled on the following piece:

A scientist debunks pickup artists’ top dating theories and techniques” 

I always find articles like this highly entertaining.

And I find them amusing principally because telling me that pickup techniques “don’t work” is like telling me that the laptop on which I’m writing these words doesn’t work. Well, it’s working pretty damn good for me, so obviously you’re an idiot.

A simple (if rather petty) example:

Here are a few pictures of my girlfriend:

And…. here’s a picture of the journalist who wrote the article:

That’s gonna be a yikes from me, fam

I can only conclude that while PUA techniques do indeed work to attract the most beautiful and glamorous women, as they did in my case, they may not be as effective at snagging embittered, frumpy female journalists.

If you want to attract women who look like the one on the left, then maybe learning pickup isn’t for you. If the woman on the right is more up your alley, however, then I’d like to teach you exactly how I got her, and dozens of other healthy, feminine and beautiful young women. I’ve put together a short, complimentary e-book for you about that which you can download for free here.


Her Twitter feed is as you would expect… containing revealing gems such as this:

With scintillating content like this, one wonders why her engagement is so low. Patriarchy, I’m sure, is to blame… 


Seriously though… I thought I’d use this silly little “debunking the pickup artists” article as a teachable moment, by exposing a few of its most glaring problems, which are typical of the genre:

#1. Written by a woman (of course) with zero area expertise

Her other articles include such profound think-pieces as: 

So obviously, this is a person whose views you need to take seriously.

#2. Bait and switch

The article starts with the implied premise that pickup “doesn’t work” (as conveyed by use of the propaganda word “debunked” in the headline).

Yet the actual argument advanced in the body of the piece is mostly moralistic, rather than functional.

It goes from implying that pickup “does’t work” (while providing no evidence for this claim because it is, of course, bogus), to merely stating the author’s subjective opinion that pickup techniques are “unhealthy”, “manipulation” and… “bad”.

#3. Straw manning

The first pickup technique which the article supposedly “debunks” is NLP, which was popular with PUAs several decades ago in the more experimental days of the movement, but isn’t used or promoted by anyone now, so far as I know.

This shows us right away that the journalist is desperate to find any potential weak point to attack rather than trying to understand, let alone address, the techniques that are actually working for guys who do cold approach in 2018.

#4. Appeals to authority of some dipshit professor from a university no one’s ever heard of

Because of course his opinion carries far more weight than the real world experience of hundreds of thousands of men who have gotten the women of their dreams using the PUA techniques which the author is so desperate to discredit.

Here is a picture of the “professor” in question:

this guy gets mad pussy, my dude. can’t you tell? can’t you tell that women are just fucking WET for him everywhere he goes? you have a lot to learn little PUA fag*g*ot, but don’t worry, Dr. “Viren Swami” is here to help. he’s going to put you right and show you how you can get MAD PUSSY, just like him, just like he does, literally every day


But it gets better.

To make this whole situation even funnier, this same “professor” was savagely torn apart on a bodybuilding forum a few years back, when they got wind that he had led a study which claimed that… wait for it… “Muscular men make bad boyfriends”

Courtesy of the gym bros:

sour grapes? me?


And… my favorite part of all…

#5. Presents no alternative!

Perhaps I wouldn’t mind if the author had said “these tactics don’t work, but here’s what is working for my male friends who are great with women”.

But no, of course she doesn’t say this because her aim isn’t to actually HELP men by offering them useful, practical advice, but rather to shame them, marginalize them, and make them feel bad for their natural desire to find a quality mate in the most efficient way possible.


Ultimately, if you’re as passionate about the art of pickup as I am, it’s hard not to feel personally attacked by articles like this.

I literally owe everything to the game…

…and seeing someone denigrate it puts me into a murderous rage not unlike the righteous fury which is felt by every zealous follower of the “religion of peace” when they hear that someone has slandered their prophet (blessings of God be upon him!)

At the same time, you have to look at things like this in a cool, dispassionate way.

It’s important to bear in mind that this sleazebag didn’t write her article because she actually CARES about any of this.

She wrote it because she knows this is the kind of crap that will get SHARED by hundreds of lonely single women, feminist soy boys and other bug people who want to position themselves as Righteous Defenders of Wahmen on their social media feeds.

Denigrating PUAs is ultimately just a way for sad, powerless people to connect with each other by bonding over a common enemy.

And as far as I’m concerned, let them!

Let them be occupied with this!

After all, they have to find some way to endure their desolate lives.

And the icing on the cake…. 

After reading this swill…. I became curious about metro.co.uk and wanted to get a sense of what the site’s agenda is.

So I Googled it, and I discovered that the Metro is owned by a company called DMG Media, which is itself owned by the billionaire aristocrat Lord Rothermere.

Turns out Lord Rothermere also owns the Daily Mail, and is one of the most powerful men in Britain.

Rothermere was a big supporter of former UK Prime Minister David Cameron who (along with his ghoulish successor Theresa May) is a spineless puppet of the US Deep State, and pushed energetically for the invasion of Syria.

So yes… Learning techniques to make you better with women is “unhealthy” and “bad”… bombing women and children for oil interests, on the other hand—that’s A-OK! 

And yet still… the rabbit hole goes even deeper.

Are you ready for this?

Strap in, fam.

Lord Rothermere… as the name implies… is not a self-made man.

Rather, he inherited most of his fortune from his father, who inherited it from his father, whose own father (the original and first Lord Rothemere) was…

…wait for it…

…one of Adolf Hitler’s most powerful supporters in Britain!

In fact, here’s a picture of old Lord Rothermere with the big man himself!

LOL…. you can’t make this shit up.

Here you’ve got this aristocratic billionaire, who inherited his wealth from his Nazi great-grand father…. and his newspaper is forcing articles down your throat about how you’re a bad person for wanting to learn how to meet women.

I’m not even angry.

If anything I’m impressed!

No, dear reader… Jonathan Harmsworth, 4th Viscount Rothermere is not a man to be hated, but rather to be emulated!

Look at him here—

“suave… god damn you are one suave fuck!”


What style! what élan!

I think I just found a new role model…

The moral of the story is, don’t be one of the “human cattle” who read The Metro.

Instead, strive to be more like its publisher, the glamorous and sinister Lord Rothemere, and commit yourself to learning how to ruthlessly and skillfully manipulate the cow-people of the West for the purpose of personal enrichment.

Adolf would be proud.

“Allison Mack Did Nothing Wrong”: The Insane Story Of A Hollywood Sex Slave Cult, And What It Reveals About Female Psychology

by Mike Haines

Have you seen this shit?

Basically, there was this “sex cult” run (allegedly) by a dude called Keith Raniere.

It was some kind of weird “sexual pyramid scheme”

All the members were women except for Raniere — and they were organized in a hierarchy, with Raniere at the top, followed by his female “slaves”.

And they in turn owned their own “slaves”, all the way down.

Craziest thing about it is: Raniere’s “second in command” was (allegedly) a famous Hollywood actress called Allison Mack (who starred in the TV show “Smallville”)

More about the cult (via AP):

“Secretive group’s leader charged with sex-trafficking

The leader of a secretive group in upstate New York turned female followers into brainwashed “slaves” who were branded with his initials and coerced into having sex, authorities alleged on Monday in a criminal complaint charging him with sex-trafficking

According to the complaint, Raniere… oversaw a barbaric system in which women were told the best way to advance was to become a “slave” overseen by “masters.”

They also were expected to have sex with him and do menial chores for masters, and to keep the arrangement a secret or be publicly humiliated, the complaint says. 

The complaint said that many victims participated in videotaped ceremonies where they were branded in their pelvic area with a symbol featuring Raniere’s initials.

During the branding ceremonies, slaves were required to be fully naked, and the master would order one slave to film while the other held down the slave being branded,” the complaint says. 

Investigators said Raniere preferred exceptionally thin women, so “slaves” had to stick to very low-calorie diets and document every food they ate

What’s going on here?

Well… assuming the allegations are true, Raniere is an evil genius.

Whatever you may say about the morality of the enterprise, you can’t deny that creating a pyramid scheme composed entirely of attractive female sex slaves is at least creative.

I am not condoning what he did.

Assuming that any of this was non-consensual (which, according to the prosecution, at least some of it was), then he is obviously a “bad person”. 

I can’t help but thinking, though…

How many of these women, in all honesty,  thoroughly ENJOYED being a part of his elaborate sado-masochistic sex cult?

Even some of the most “heinous” charges (branding, humiliation, etc) are not all that different from what is now part and parcel of mainstream consensual BDSM…

Are we really going to pretend — post 50 Shades of Grey — that a large number of women are not aroused by being dominated, whipped, tied up, kept as “slaves”, and so on?

It’s possible this guy was a true psychopath and abuser and that all or some of these women were forced into it (with blackmail or whatever)… 

But in the case of Allison Mack, at least — this is clearly not true.

Allison Mack is the most interesting part of this story — not Raniere.

Here we have a woman who is:

  • beautiful
  • intelligent
  • famous
  • rich

And she chooses to not only be a part of this sex cult… but to function as Raniere’s primary recruiter of sex slaves. 

Look at this video of the two of them talking: 

This woman is not crazy.

She’s not even unstable.

She’s charming, intelligent and highly articulate.

She is a perfect 10, and if you disagree with me on this, you lack taste.

She’s “wife material”  the total package.

It’s also very clear that she is a NICE PERSON.

I would even go so far as to say (purely on the basis of the vibe I get from her in this video) that she is a GOOD PERSON (distinct from merely a “nice person”)

99% of men would be over the moon to lock down a woman like this.

She clearly has many, MANY options. 

She could date handsome, rich A-list actors and celebrities who are NOT psychopaths… who DON’T run sex slave rings… and who don’t even WANT to run sex slave rings.

Yet she chose Raniere.

So what’s going on here?

How could a woman like this become an ass-branding, slave-abusing FUCK TOY RECRUITER for an alleged “monster” such as Raniere?

I talk about this in my newsletter continually (which you can sign up for here)

It’s very simple, and if you haven’t already gotten it by now, you never will.

Women want to be with a MASTER.

You may not like this fact, but at the end of the day you must acknowledge that women CAN ONLY BE ATTRACTED TO YOU IF YOU ARE A MASTER.

This is biological.

It’s physiological.

She literally CANNOT GET WET unless she views you as a “master” — specifically, as her master

And that applies just as much to “good girls”, straight A students, concert violinists, and other high performers like Mack as it does to the collared sluts of Tumblr and Fetlife.com (who are simply more self-aware than most women, but no different in their essential impulses and needs.)

You need to get this through your head.

You can dress it up in whatever language you want. Women want to be OWNED by a strong man.

Not by any man.

But by a STRONG, POWERFUL man. 

Being owned by a chump who can’t even master himself, let alone her, is too damaging to a woman’s self-respect — hence why so many men can’t get laid.

Because if she doesn’t feel owned, she can’t feel horny.

And if you’re not worthy of owning her  if you’re not worthy of literally owning her, like she’s your property then she simply will not feel aroused enough to even sleep with you.

You may think this is a high bar to jump and it is. But it’s easier once you have become crystal clear about the problem. 

Take a good hard look in the mirror and ask yourself: “Would a woman want to be OWNED by me? Would a woman willingly, and even enthusiastically submit to being my slave, my possession? In all sincerity, am I worthy of that honor?” 

If not, I got news for you — you’re not getting laid with hotties any time soon.

Women will feel attraction to a MASTER whether he is a “good” or “bad” person…..

But they will NEVER feel attraction to a “slave” (in modern parlance, a “nice guy” — whose entire value system is simply rationalized slave morality)….

The process of female attraction is BEYOND GOOD AND EVIL.

Love itself is beyond good and evil.

Watch that video again. Look at how she looks at him. 

Look at the way she speaks to him.

She is clearly head-over-heels in love with this man.

Because whatever his flaws, he has some way or other learned how to KEEP A WOMAN.

In other words, he is a man.

And that makes him a rare find in today’s age.

You may not like him.

You may believe he should rot in prison (and perhaps he should — though I reserve judgement until after the case is settled, as I have yet to be convinced that these women were not consenting in the arrangement)

But whatever your opinion of him, you cannot deny that he is a MAN.

And she is responding to that in accordance with her nature — the way all women do in the presence of a MAN — with reverence, respect, love, adoration.

At the end of the day, I feel sorry for Allison Mack

Woman’s sexual nature evolved before our modern (“slave morality”-based) definitions of good and evil were developed.

A woman cannot control if she falls in love with a man who modern society regards as “evil”.

It is sad that getting involved with this guy has ruined her life and career (probably permanently) despite the fact that she is ultimately just following the dictates of her nature as woman.


But enough about her.

What is the takeaway for YOU?

If you ever needed any more proof that women want a MASTER — not a “nice guy” — here you go.

Whether you choose to exercise your mastery in a moral or amoral way is totally irrelevant to her ATTRACTION to you.

She perceives you are a MASTER, and instinctively wants to come under your OWNERSHIP — regardless of whether you are a “good” or “evil” man

For the record, I advise you to be GOOD.

(It’s better for you in the long-run.)

But it’s very important to understand that women don’t make that distinction, and they never will, because their biology predates our phony, hypocritical morality.

Rejecting You Is Part Of A Woman’s Process Of Becoming Attracted To You

by mike haines

lingerie-2159697_1920 copy


1. If you’re a serious student of game, you have read Models by Mark Manson.

In my opinion, it’s the best book on success with women that’s ever been written.

Unfortunately, some of the teachings of this book have been turned into an ideology which many guys in the seduction community now cling to dogmatically.


2. The rejection myth

In this post I am going to annihilate one of the core teachings of Models — an idea which has been embraced as revealed truth in the seduction community for years now.

This is the idea that pursuing women who have rejected you is a “time sink”, and you should simply move on to those who are more interested.


3. The premise of the myth:

Here’s what Mark writes in his book:

“I’ll say this, in six years, after approaching thousands of women, and hooking up with hundreds of them, I can think of less than 10 instances where a woman was flat out unreceptive towards me and I ‘won her over’. If she shuts you down, tells you to go away, tells you she’s not interested, tells you she has a boyfriend—move on. Seriously, get over it and move on. You’re wasting your time. There are 3.1 billion women on this planet. She’s not worth it.”

While this advice is good for beginners, it promotes a DEFEATIST ATTITUDE which will prevent you from getting laid with the most attractive women in the long-run.

Specifically, it will prevent you from attracting and mating with the kind of woman I call a “Total 10”. This is because the highest quality women almost invariably give you the harshest tests, and if you’re inexperienced (or even intermediate), you will misinterpret these tests as “rejection”.


4. My background

I didn’t lose my virginity until I was 18. After my first girlfriend broke things off, I spent 2 years involuntarily celibate.

At 21, I discovered “red pill” ideas (back then it was just called game). I started working on my cold approach skills with a relentless, almost autistic intensity.

I approached about 30 girls a week for some 78 consecutive weeks before I got my first same night lay from cold approach.

From that point, it got easier. I knew game was real, and now it was just a matter of getting more efficient at it.

Soon I was pulling ass every two weeks, more or less, like clockwork. I banged a lot of pretty girls from my college, along with the occasional model, actress or exotic dancer.

Six years later I’m in a long-term relationship with the girl pictured here. We plan on having kids soon.


5. A “Total 10” defined

I’m with a woman who is a Total 10 to me. I want you to be able to do the same.

When I talk about a Total 10, I mean a girl who is (to you) a 10/10 in both looks and personality.

She’s exquisitely beautiful and highly feminine.

She’s the type of girl who’s so pretty that it physically hurts when you see her on another guy’s arm.

This is the kind of woman I want you to be with.

And this is the calibre of woman you will never get if you have internalized the idea that you should only focus on women who make themselves easy to approach.

Hey… Are You Single?

This is the best infield pickup video  I’ve watched in a long time.

Self-amusement at its finest.

In fact, it’s the single best demonstration of self-amusement I’ve seen committed to video since Julien got his balls cut off.

The fact that there’s no pulls or solid numbers in the video itself is irrelevant.

Study this guy’s style. This is how Jedi level amused mastery in game looks.

Things to notice:

#1. Self-Amusement. This video is MASTER CLASS in making approaching fun, by saying deliberately idiotic things. You can see the girls getting drawn into it. 

#2. Deliberate awkwardness. He is making things DELIBERATELY hard on himself, such as by saying things like “what’s up… sucka” and “you saucy little dog”, as well as by pausing between sentences for an unnecessarily long time.

Paradoxically, these demonstrations of “lower value” actually work to INCREASE his value — because they function as an honest signal that he sincerely doesn’t give a fuck about the outcome of the interaction.

3. Loooong ass pauses. He uses LONG pauses to deliberately increase awkwardness and sexual tension. You’d be surprised how far this one trick can go to create attraction out of thin air.

4. Multiple layers of irony. It is not at all clear whether he actually likes any of these girls or is simply mercilessly trolling the fuck out of them. This creates a magnetic vibe which draws the girls in. 

Study this video. There’s a lot to learn.

And yeah, it doesn’t hurt that this guy is a good-looking jock who clearly lifts weights and is probably popular.

But stop whining, you little faggot.

Study the behavior.

Also… I would DESTROY that first girl.

Don’t Fuck The Patriarchy

Huffington Post writer argues women should stop giving sex to men who exhibit “toxic masculinity”.

Some of my favorite reactions:

…this article is the equivalent of a beta schlub trying to tell the top 20% of us “don’t fuck the hot girls cuz they were mean to me.” It ain’t gonna happen.

(Via therealpkg)


…you know who the biggest supporters and enablers of “Patriarchy” are? Women.

  • Men are dominant because women fuck the dominant man.
  • Men are violent because women fuck the victor.
  • Men compete for money because women fuck the wealthy man.
  • Men keep women down the hierarchy because women fuck upwards in the hierarchy.

The patriarchal system (i.e. men leading) exists because of women’s nature. The “patriarchy” is enabled by women.

Women complaining about the patriarchy is just women blaming men for something women created.

(Via Auvergnat)



…So yes, women will continue to fuck the Patriarchy. They will slurp on the Patriarchy’s cock and they will lick the Patriarchy’s balls. And then they will ask to be the “little spoon” after.

And the “But…but I’m a Feminist!” douchebags will go home and beat off.

Get Laid Like A Warlord: The 37 Rules of Approaching Model-Tier Girls

img altered

This guide was originally posted on r/TheRedPill, where it quickly received 2,845 upvotes, making it that community’s most popular post of all time (as of this writing). Today, it was mentioned in an article in Mel Magazine — which reminded me to post it here for posterity’s sake. Enjoy.

A complete guide to picking up 9s and 10s

Today I want to tell you everything I know about getting the highest calibre girls from cold approach.

This guide will cover: frame control, inner game, and passing tests — which I consider to be the holy trinity of “9 and 10 game”.

This guide will NOT cover: body language, pulling, or handling logistics.

Obviously, the latter are extremely important, but they’ve been adequately covered elsewhere, and there just isn’t space to include them here.

My background

Picked on in school, small and sickly, didn’t have a girlfriend until 18. Was dumped by her and spent the first 2 years of college pretty much celibate.

Started going out and approaching regularly. Approach anxiety and ceaseless rejection for months, but I kept at it. The odd success here and there.

After about 2 years I was fucking a new girl every fortnight or so, mostly 7s and 8s with the occasional turbo when fortune smiled on me. My current girlfriend is a 9, has done modelling etc.

Below is everything I know about getting the hottest women from cold approach pickup…

Pick-Up Artists See a Kindred Spirit in Trump

“He’s that asshole in the club,” said one admirer. “Maybe you wouldn’t sleep with him… but you know somebody else is.”

The full article is interesting, and surprisingly objective .

Covers the relationship between PUA, the Red Pill, and the New Right.

Highlights include:

…pick-up artists were never political — and in fact most identified as liberals — when The Game was published during the Bush era. Then, during the Obama years, the mainstream culture shifted to the left and ‘you started seeing a lot of feminist hit pieces on pick-up artists, and that pushed the whole community far right…’

Glad to see my post How To Get Laid Like A Warlord got a mention too. My first ever bit of press. Thanks Jennifer Swann  ;^)
