As with any sexual theorizing, an amusing combination of fantasy and generalizations based off "these girls I know."

Alternatively just another example of conspiracy theorists who need to find some over-reaching model that connects everything they don't understand into a neat package that brings "order" from chaos.

On a scale of 0 (the former) to 10 (the latter) I'd place this around a 4

My thoughts:

If it's intended to be funny, you need to work on the spelling.

If it's intended to start a conspiracy theory, you need to work on the theory.

If it's intended to get you laid, invest in hand lotion.

Of course Darth must not be a member or he wouldn't have posted this.

Or should I have said you male chauvinist pig Darth how could you even conceive of such a thing. Of course women are pure and cheat less then men. Don't you want to find true love? You'll never get it acting like that.

Three come to mind:

1. People calling themselves "Tyler Durden" are on the same level as people who call themselves "DarkRaven HeartScar" and "EdwardCullenLvr23." You're not Tyler Durden, but keep dreaming that you could actually be cool if you really wanted to be. File it under your goals, right after spending 10 years at the Shaolin Monastery but before becoming a Navy Seal Super Assassin.

2. This continues the DarthXaos vicious cycle: Until he gets laid*, he's going to keep posting this socially retarded mix of clueless pseudo-psychology and wishful thinking. But as long as he finds this nonsense interesting enough to post it, he's never going to get laid. Catch-22!

3. This is about the third time you've posted some variation this sorry "OMG HERE'S HOW TO GET LAID FOR REAL" scene and asked for people's thoughts. Can't you predict them yet?

*by a non-hooker.

I just don't feel this is a proper use of Catch-22, but I can't put my finger on where is the issue. I guess I'm part of the 48% that don't get it.

I was on notice with the unironic use of "Tyler Durden".

It lost me with the unapologetic use of "shrowds". Ah, the wisdom of shrowds.

Standing in line at the store with my booze a bit ago, I was struck by how much this stuff ("Secret Society," "Pick-Up Artist," etc.) is really just a male version of Cosmopolitan.

Equally predictable and false pipe dreams about happiness and success, and YOU TOO can be just like our sexy cover model! And every issue is the SPECIAL SEX ISSUE! I wonder if "Tyler Durden" knows the "12 Secret Signs She's Really Into You!" or "How To Have Bad Boy Sex!" or "Check out the results of our survey of 1000 smokin' hot chicks who want to BONE YOU RIGHT NOW -- the answers MAY SURPRISE YOU!!!"

I dunno. Cosmo at least isn't trying to pretend.

I note that their online version has instructions on how to build a pergola, and a smattering of recipes.
The Secret Society version would be some sort of recipe that'd sell itself as a legal version of roofies -- "really! just sprinkle a little Tabasco and Worcestershire sauce in her lemon iced tea and she'll totally do you!1!11!!11", combined with some tool's completely misogynist tips on getting the best Thai hooker experience.

Oy.

They also fuck their gay boyfriends or jerk them off or give them head. They're part of the secret society too, so they can't be left out.



Damn Nate... I had no idea I had been failing to fulfill my duties as both your friend and fellow secret society member. What .... 4 or 5 Cons now and I have never given you a BJ or a handjob? You should have told me. I am so embarrassed. blush
Can you ever forgive me?

If this guy is getting as much sex as he claims, we shouldn't rule out competing hypotheses until we test them.

For example, it could be that women are really turned on by a combination of bad grammar, bad math and bad writing.

If this guy were getting as much sex as he claims, he wouldn't have time to write.

Now, now, this isn't the time to jump to conclusions. We're examining possibilities.

Maybe you've got it backwards. Maybe he's getting so much sex that he has to think of crazy ways to keep it interesting. Like, "OK, I'm going to write an essay about how to get laid while you're on top and I have to finish before either of us orgasms."

At least it would make the terrible writing, math, grammar, spelling, etc., understandable.

There's an image that the Kama Sutra never considered.

Dumb women with low standards get lonely too.

Come to think of it, they're the linchpin in all those 'Get Laid NOW!' spiels. That and having no standards of your own of course.

Starting with 'all women are the same' is already a mistake. No matter how you describe that theoretical woman and what she wants, using the same tactics with every single one just lowers your chances.

Different women have different tastes, and find different things attractive. It just happens that some men have so many good, diverse traits and skills that they are considered attractive by a very wide variety of women.

Instead of keeping reading the kind of junk you C/P'ed in the OP, how about making a female friend, and after making sure she understands who you are, ask her what parts of your persona are being a problem. As an added bonus, you might get at least some respect for women, which it seems is sorely needed.

This sounds like a description of various religious beliefs.

True story, and major derail: I was once at Boston Beer Works drinking their most excellent Peanut Butter Porter, when I look over and I see the Beer Advocate guys.

What does the "OK+" mean on bottles and cans of beer?
Spoiler (click to reveal)
Hint: There's another topic active on RSP that overlaps with this question


They had no idea, and frankly acted rather prickish and Massholish about it. To add insult to injury, in their next column they wrote a fake letter to themselves, "asking" themselves the question that I'd stumped them with, and then waxing eloquent about the answer, and the history behind it.

DAMMIT! NO ONE STEALS MY PEDANTIC THUNDER ON ANY TOPIC, ESPECIALLY BEER-RELATED! NO ONE!

I think maybe the next beer should be one without all that caffeine in it...
