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.
In other words, Strauss has demonstrated that seduction and excitement are both walks he can walk.
If you know him as Style or Chris Prowles, then you may be familiar with his seduction and business style – the guy keeps to himself, releasing his thoughts on seduction to ultra small numbers of men, usually other members of the seduction community.
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.
And packaging this material as a ‘school’ is an equally sneaky way to convince men that this information is valuable and necessary.
I have been a professional photographer for 3 years, specializing in photographing feminine portraiture for the past 2 years.
No one looks down on a man who goes back to ‘school’, do they?
The release of his book The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pick-up Artists is as much of a catalyst in the ongoing feud in the seduction community as any other event.
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.
