I am 33 years old and grew up in Maryland, USA. My birthday is on Flag Day, a national holiday.
After I graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in microbiology, I began a career as an industrial microbiologist. A couple years later I started a local blog called DC Bachelor, and lived in constant paranoia that my employer would bust me for the sexist content. Eventually I changed the name to Roosh V because I no longer cared about getting fired.
Six years into my career, and a little over two years after I started DC Bachelor, I quit my job and finished my first book called Bang, a textbook for picking up girls and getting laid. Afterwards I spent six rough months in South America, which I detailed in my second book called A Dead Bat In Paraguay. I rested in the States for a year before returning to South America for thirteen months. I then finished my third book called Bang Colombia, about how to get laid in Colombia. Since then I’ve released several more titles while living in Europe, with the most popular being Day Bang, my day game manual. You can view all my books at BangGuides.com.
Starting in 2011, I’ve been written about in the European media due to my Bang travel guides. The Icelandic gossip magazine DV wrote four stories about Bang Iceland (1, 2, 3, 4), with a writer from the Icelandic Review having a lot of “personal anger” towards its release. The book was talked about on Icelandic television and radio, including a live radio interview I did where I was asked if I was a “male slut.” Iceland’s largest feminist organization condemned it entirely.
Similar coverage occurred in Denmark after I released Don’t Bang Denmark. Danish gossip magazine Ekstra Bladet wrote five articles on the book (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) before it hit Danish television for a ten minute panel discussion on its merits and my hunt for “poosy paradise.” TV2 published point-counterpoint articles: Danish women are “angry and humorless” versus “feminine and sexy.” There was some sympathetic coverage towards the end, but hundreds of angry comments flooded my blog. Most said I was ugly and couldn’t handle “strong” Danish women.
Scandinavian rage followed me into other European countries. I was written about in Estonia before I even arrived in the country, leading to a semi-organized movement to get me deported and prevent the publication of an Estonian bang guide. After Bang Estonia was released, three more articles were published (1, 2, 3). Latvian media published two articles (1, 2).
The reaction was much stronger in Lithuania, where my book received blanket coverage. Articles were written in Lithuania’s biggest news site, Cosmo magazine, and five others (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Many comments threatened me with death if I were to ever return. For fun I pranked the media with a bogus interview that made Lithuanians froth even more.
In America, I was placed on a “misogyny” list by the Southern Poverty Law Center in their quarterly Intelligence Report, which usually reports on domestic terrorism and neo-Nazi groups. The move was condemned by Reason, Business Insider, and the National Review, prompting the SPLC to partially retract their list by stating those on it are not members of a “hate group.” The Huffington Post wrote an article about my inclusion, along with the Danish media.
My book Bang Colombia randomly exploded in the Colombian media two years after it was originally released. It was criticized in El Pais, Publimetro, Terra, Vanguardia, La Region, Semana, and El Liberal, among others. Not long after, I was mentioned in a critical Norwegian article about the rise of the manosphere.
I’m currently in Europe, still searching for poosy paradise. Due to my work, I’ve been recognized in nine countries.
Before emailing me, read this brief FAQ as I may already have the answer to your question. I know this is rather impersonal but it’s becoming very difficult to manage the amount of emails I receive. If you don’t see your question or comment below, feel free to send me an email, but please be extremely patient in receiving a reply.
“Can you give me advice on this one girl I like?”
As I explained in The 9 Immutable Laws Of Pickup, if you have to ask advice on one girl then you already lost her. That said, post your question on my forum and I’ll try my best to get to it there. In the meantime other guys will be able to help you. Also, I put out several Q&A editions in my newsletter so chances are your situation has already been discussed.
“Okay but I really need some girl advice.”
Post on the forum.
“But I bought your book. Can I get still some advice?”
Thanks for buying my book(s)! I sincerely appreciate the support, but unfortunately I can’t provide email consultations. Post on the forum and I’ll try my best to get to it.
“I’m under 21-years-old. Can you give me specific advice for my age group?”
I got into the game after college so I don’t have too much specific advice for you, but game techniques do work with younger girls. The forum has younger guys that are into game and could help with your specific questions.
“Can you send me more pick-up information? You know what, just send me everything you know!”
“When are you going to teach workshops again?”
I currently have no plans to teach workshops again in the near future.
“Do you have more material on ________?”
“I want to travel. Where should I go?”
Since I don’t personally know you, and haven’t been to many parts of the world, my advice will be incomplete, severely biased, and limited to just a few countries. Write out your needs (be as specific as possible) and post a message in the travel section of my forum to get recommendations.
“Is Rio/Medellin safe?”
No place in the world is safe 100% of the time, but if there is a country that has tourism infrastructure then common sense will most likely keep you safe. Post in the travel forum if you have any specific concerns.
“I’m a girl. Can you rate these pictures I attached? Can you give me guy advice?”
“Can we exchange links?”
I only link up to sites that I read regularly. The best way to get my attention is to post comments on my posts with your site address. If I like your site I’ll subscribe to its RSS feed, and then possibly link to it in the future.
“Can you promote my seduction product via its affiliate program?”
I don’t promote other products.
“I work in PR and represent so-and-so client. Can you tell your readers about his or her product/seminar/show for free?”
“I found your blog after hooking up with you. I’m disgusted at what a pig you are.”
“Do you consider yourself a ‘pick up artist’?”
No, but you can call me that if it helps you fit me in your existing world view.
If your question has not been answered or you would like to share a comment then send me an email me to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the form below. Please be brief. Unfortunately I get so much email that I can’t reply to everyone. Sorry.
