This group of students went on to feature some stars of its own, including one student who released the controversial “How to Fuck Strippers” book in 2007.This emphasis placed on releasing information to a small amount of consumers is a unique idea in the world in which Neil Strauss operates.Strauss suggests that men will learn their weaknesses and be confident about what they already have right, and are then further prepared to work on “hypnosis” techniques similar to those suggested by Ross Jeffries, or the more mysterious “inner game”.

Strauss once climbed into bed with Jewel during an interview, and the myths surrounding his alleged kidnapping by Courtney Love (one version of the story claims she stabbed and drugged him) are dirty enough to be withdrawn from this article.

To top it off, Neil Strauss can list more than a few celebrity girlfriends to his credit, including the drummer from Courtney Love’s band The Chelsea.

In fact, Neil Strauss’ first method, known as Annihilation Method, was taught to five men in Strauss home over a long weekend in 2005.

This approach flies right in the face of the methods of men like Ross Jeffries or Doc Love, men who make their material highly available, even leaking large portions of it for free to men who know how to run a search engine.

Neil Strauss, while more mysterious than others in the seduction scene, is not much different from the famous names in seduction theory.

His methods are similar, even his high profile “retirement” (which is really just another avenue to sell you his books) lines right up with similar actions made by his teachers a few years ago.

The difference with Strauss is the assumption that he has lived the life he advertises.

All the mystery of his Method is mirrored by the mysteries of his life. How did he get Jenna Jameson to open up to a stranger in such detail?

Moving away from this philosophy only slightly, Strauss has opened what he calls “The first online school for self-improvement and attraction”, though it is easy to imagine this “school” as just the next step for pickup artists and their students – why not gather all of your “method” teachings into easy-to-disseminate lectures and packages so that men don’t mind paying “tuition” to learn from you.
