5 Ways to Stay Young and Keep Your Vitality

stay young

Getting old is optional. It’s not so much about our bodies getting a little more wrinkly, as it is our mindsets change; sometimes for the worst. Guys having middle-age crises annoy me. It’s like they release they’ve lost their youth / vitality, and they rapidly try to make up for it in a panic, instead […]

Is “Game” and Pickup Artistry Hurting Men Everywhere?


If there was ever a topic I spent some time feeling conflicted about, it’s this one.

This […]

Online Dating Heralds the Apocalypse for Western Men

I’ll preface this by saying I have no affiliation with the site “Sluthate” which appears to be another misguided offshoot of “PUAHate” – which was shut down after one of their members, a guy we know named Elliot Rodger, went on a killing spree in southern California.

The 6 Types of Oneitis


Maybe you have heard the term “Oneitis” before. This is the natural tendency to get caught up on one girl. It obviously affects both sexes, as well. I was with a girl recently who described her mind as being completely invaded by a bad experience with a guy she was starting to date. “He started […]

(The following is a guest post by Sebastian at Global Seducers). What do you think when you hear the expressions Pickup Artist and Seducer?

sexual attraction

Many people, especially women, mistake chemistry for sexual attraction. Have you ever had a woman say to you, “We just don’t have chemistry together, sorry”? The truth is that sexual attraction and chemistry are two different animals. Attraction is, explicitly speaking, if you make her wet. Chemistry is how well you get along with somebody […]

The Truth About What Women Want (It’s Wladimir Klitschko)

Wladimir Klitschko

Wladimir Klitschko is a Ukrainian boxer who looks like a villain in a 90s Steven Segal action flick.

The Merits of the MGTOW Movement (Why Women Should Be De Prioritized)


MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way) is a loosely-knit movement that certainly draws a fair amount of criticism. It concerns men withdrawing from the sexual marketplace to pursue their own lives, independent of pressure to pickup girls, get laid, or get married. With articles like the brilliant “The Sexodus” on Breitbart, MGTOW is beginning to […]

How to Be a Gentleman By Not Being a Gentleman

how to be a gentleman

Traditionally, men are taught by their elders how to be a gentleman. This brings to mind various nostalgic early 20th century ideas of opening doors, practicing some form of chivalry, and being a polite, well-rounded man. There are many ways that “being a gentleman” is an adage that bothers me. It implies automatically that men […]

Are You An Alpha Male or Just An Insecure Dude?

fake alpha male

Alpha male is a popular buzzword these days (I even wrote a book dissecting the topic). However, let’s be clear that alpha behavior has little in common with overly-macho, aggressive or insecure attitudes. The very concept of “alpha” is also shaky. In social situations, we can observe men with high-levels of social prowess and charisma. Comparably, […]
