10 tips on how to expose a pick-up artist in time

A warning is being circulated on the Internet to all women in Germany: they should be especially careful this coming Saturday, 6 February, if they are going to clubs or bars, etc., as they would have to count on particularly unscrupulous pickers. turned on up-artists and may even be raped.

Pick-up artists are basically not necessarily rapists. Actually, it is the men who call themselves that, to get through special flirting tactics as many women in bed.

However, there are some types who misunderstand this art and have made it their goal to make even those women for sex who clearly reject it.

One of them is the American Roosh V, born in Daryush Valizadeh, who claims on his website and in books titled "Bang Poland" that the violent taking of a woman should be punishable. Roosh V has a lot of followers - all over the world.

10 tips on how to expose a pick-up artist in time

She compiled the book author Clarisse Thorn, who in her book "Fiese Kerle? En route with rip-offs "illuminates the phenomenon of pick-up artists.

1. Do not be fooled by a flashy styling!

The term for this is peacocking. Based on a male peacock (English »Peacock«), pick-up artists try to attract the attention of women by means of eye-catching clothing, unusual accessories or unusual hairstyling. It is important not to look silly, unaesthetic or exaggerated, but to demonstrate strength through your own style.

2. Attention to classic Anmachsprüchen!

However, the success of "Hey, this is your big win" depends very much on the situation and also intonation, so that many experienced pick-up artists prefer to do without it. It is now too easy to see through.

3. Question stories that sound like little scripts!

Some pick-up artists do not just use an opener to talk to the woman, they've learned complete "routines" by heart. You can thus have a conversation from start to finish without saying a word that you have not already figured out.

4. Watch for details that point to the manipulative push-and-pull game of a pickup artist!

Numerous compliments and cleverly distributed praise follow rejection and humiliation. A method of pick-up artists whose goal is to present themselves more interesting and to make the opposite obedient.

5. Look closely at the shy and aggressive guys!

The vast majority of pick-up artists are actually just shy and clumsy, they do not get hold of a date in the normal way and put all their hopes in the strategies of the pick-up artists. Unfortunately, there are also enough disgusting, almost aggressive misogynists among the pick-up artists who are out to control and humiliate women. The hedonistic pick-up artists, who just want to have fun, are a minority.

6. Beware of men who are late!

Many pick-up artists are more than happy to wait for women and generally come too late to attract attention and make themselves important.

7. Be critical of too strong self-esteem!

Self-esteem is precisely the trait that makes many women attracted to assholes but ultimately does not make them happy. Pick-up artists know exactly how important a pronounced self-confidence is when they first get to know each other and use it skillfully.

8. The last stage of the learned seduction strategy is the Last Minute Resistance method:

If a woman at the last minute before the intercourse expressing doubts and resist the man's too fast action, the skilled pick-up artist will first ignore the woman's no and then apply the strategy of freeze-out. He thinks he freezes the situation by suddenly ceasing to desire the woman and turning to another activity in a kind of punishment.

9. Attention to ambiguous, uncertain or vague utterances!

Pick-up artists try to make women docile by so-called cold-hot showers. First he tells you that he's still meeting other women - maybe not, then he tells you he might fall in love with you - maybe not. If you want to leave him, he may tell you that he would then fall in love with a stubborn woman. This uncertainty makes women insane in the long run.

10. Arrogance comes before the fall!

Who thinks that only unstable or simply knitted women of pick-up artists can be wrapped around the finger, which deceives! Even academics, rationally thinking and very intelligent women fall for the well-rehearsed tricks of the sometimes very charming ripper. Pick-up artists serve the longings of many women very purposefully.

"ALL PICK-UP ARTISTS HAVE THE SAME OBJECTIVE: SE X WITH AS POSSIBLE MANY WOMEN."

Interview with Clarisse Thorne on the tactics of pick-up artists

The book "Nasty guys?" deals with the so-called pick-up artists, a thriving in the US and now in Germany scene, which has set itself the goal of perfecting their seduction skills to get the largest possible number of women to bed. What do we have to imagine under a pick-up artist?

Clara Thorne: There are different types of pick-up artists, PUAs for short, who also do very different hunting for women.

Of course there's the shy and awkward guy who has little idea how to approach a woman at all. Another guy could be described as a hedonist who is only interested in having fun.

And then there are the misogynous men - a medical psychological term for misogyny. This type of pick-up artist feels superior to the opposite sex and is always looking for new ways to exploit women.

But all PUAs have the same goal: sex with as many women as possible. It could be said that the pick-up artist scene is a school of seduction, but also acts as a relationship counselor and self-help group for men.

How did you find out about this scene and what attracted you to take a look behind the scenes of this subculture?

Clara Thorne: Gender issues, sexuality and masculinity are a strong fascination for me. The pick-up artists represent an interesting interface between all three themes.

Some of the pick-up artists are very thoughtful, critical personalities who (like myself) strive to learn as much as possible about the different sexes and interpersonal interaction in general. But there are also many who join the scene, because they hope for a personal advantage.

I was most interested in the members of the scene, who either act socially incompetent or overly analytical. Because I have to admit that I see both trains in myself as well. Maybe that's why I'm still good friends with some pick-up artists today, whom I met during my research.

A strategy of the so-called pick-up artists, which you describe in your book, is to use the longings of a woman. Why do you think women still fall for this trick?

Clara Thorne: A pick-up artist coach once said something very impressive to me: »It may seem that many women are attracted to assholes. But these women do not really like assholes. They are just looking for something that has many assholes, such as self-esteem. Men should focus on what those assholes are doing right. "

Many men think that women ignore them because they are too nice, but that's nonsense. Men who are sincere, kind, lovable and respectful are constantly being laid flat.

However, these men are then self-confident and radiate this too - as well as the supposed assholes. Except that they also have a lot of positive qualities.
