    Neil Strauss’s “The Game”

    Neil Strauss’s now classic book, The Game:  Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists expose an entire community of pickup artists, who are masters at meeting, attracting, and seducing women.

    In the book, Style, gives insights into some of his favorite ways of picking up women:

    • How to use pickup artist openers to start conversations
    • How to use pickup artist routines to keep a conversation going and grow attraction
    • How to use the dual induction massage to get a threesome
    • How to “peacock” to attract women with your unusual sense of fashion

    Here is a compilation of some of Neil Strauss’s most famous routines from The Game:

    1. The Best Friend’s Test
    2. The Cube Routine
    3. C vs. U Shaped Smiles

    The Game, Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists also chronicles the lives of some of the most famous pickup artist in the world.  Some of the other famous pickup artist that Neil Strauss writes about in his book include:

    Project Hollywood

    Project Hollywood was a house that Neil Strauss shared with Mystery, Tyler Durden, Papa, Extramask, Playboy, Papa, Sickboy, and a few other pickup artists.  They used the mansion in Hollywood to teach pickup artist seminars, seduce women, study the game,  and fight internally.

    For a brief period, Courtney Love of the band Hole, also lived in Project Hollywood with all of the pickup artists.

    Neil Strauss’s Transformation into a Pickup Artist

    The Game, Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists spends much the beginning of the book talking about Neil Strauss journey from AFC (average frustrated chump) to PUA (pickup artist.)

    Neil Strauss, a reporter for the New York Times, and author of biographies on bands like Motley Crue, Jenna Jamison, Marlyn Manson… went undercover to penetrate the secret society of pickup artists for an article… but once involved, Neil Strauss was immediately sucked into the lifestyle of meeting, attracting, and seducing women.

    Here is a brief chronicle of Neil Strauss’s journey from AFC to PUA

    1. Neil Strauss decides to write article about underground seduction community
    2. Neil Strauss attends seduction bootcamp hosted by Mystery
    3. Mystery recommends he get a tan, shave his head, and lose weight.
    4. Strauss learns some pua openers to begin conversations with women
    5. Strauss learn some good pua routines to keep a conversation going
    6. He begins posting regularly on seduction forums across the internet

    10. He meets Hole Guitarist, Lisa, and begin dating her
    11. He gets Oneitis
    12. He gets back with Lisa, and decides that it’s time to leave the game

    Since Neil Strauss’s game relied heavily on peacocking, magic tricks, pua routines, and various props, he carried around a “prop bag” containing the items that would help him infield, meeting, attracting, and seducing various HB10’s.

    Since you may be interested in using a similar style as Neil, I’ve included a list of all of the items that PUA Style carries in his prop bag.
