There Is No Shortcut To Getting Laid

When realizing the amount of work that game requires, a man’s first instinct may be to seek out an easier way. For example, maybe a guy noticed that girls are attracted to men with big muscles, so he decides to go that route. From being skinny-fat he works out hard over the course of nine months to develop a rock hard body that causes a 7 to approach him in a club and bang him. Success! And all it took was about 175 hours in the gym.

Another man noticed that having a social circle is a sure way to get laid, so he puts in the work to create a network of friends and finally after six months he meets an 8 and enters a relationship with her. Success! And all it took was 200 hours of spending time with his “friends” with the principal goal to get laid.

Another man noticed that being popular on Instagram was a great way to get attention from women, so for a year he spent half an hour a day taking good photos, researching hashtags, responding to comments, and managing his online image. He attended a local Instagram meetup and met a pretty girl and banged her. Success! And all it took was 200 hours of using his smartphone.

Another man noticed that having social status in the nightclubs was the best way to get a girl. He decides to frequent the best clubs and schmooze with promoters. After six months of becoming a somebody in these venues, he gets an 8 who bangs him for one month before moving on to a man with higher status. Success! And all it cost him with 275 hours and hundreds of dollars in liquor expenses.

Another man noticed that Colombian village girls had a natural attraction for him. They don’t speak English, of course, so he spent the better half of the year intensively learning Spanish. After several months of study, he moved to the village and found his dream girl who he was ready to impregnate. Success! And all it cost him was 400 hours of language study and re-locating to a new country.

Thankfully, these men received additional rewards that didn’t only include sex. The guy at the gym still has his nice body, the man with the social circle still has his friends, and the man with club status can still leverage that to meet more women or network with other businessmen. At the same time, a man who spends much of his game time cold approaching will learn social skills that transfer to his professional career and other relationships. Show me a guy who has game and he will be able to tell you exactly how he uses that game every day in his life besides just getting laid. Whatever option you choose will have its ancillary benefits.

I’m not disparaging men who take alternate paths to getting laid, but I must remind you that there is no shortcut to getting laid. What you think of as a shortcut, like becoming a bartender or a Tinder ninja, still requires time and energy in order to reach the same sexual end as other methods. The superiority of one method over another will simply depend on the man and where his personal interests lie. However, there is a cost from doing indirect methods that neglect game work: you may lack the skills needed to keep whomever girl you bang. If you get needy on her after the bang, or fail to maintain the attraction she has for you, you’ll lose her. In other words, there is absolutely no escaping the fact that you need to learn pure game alongside any other strategy you pursue. Game has become a requirement for all modern men, not just to get laid but to maintain relationships, whether you like it or not.

For myself, I have picked the strategy which complements my lifestyle. Since I’m nomadic, developing local status or a network of friends doesn’t make sense since I don’t stay in cities for long. I work out but in Eastern Europe having massive muscles isn’t valued as much as in the West, so I don’t devote more than a few hours a week to it. Therefore, when it comes to getting laid, I mainly rely on the cold approach. It’s not easy, but it’s the skill that I can use in any city I live in.

Only when I become a permanent resident can I start to invest time in the more indirect methods that not only help me with women, but offer me additional social or personal benefits. Whatever method you choose, it should be one where you value the extra benefits it offers besides sex, because you’ll be spending hundreds of hours doing it. If you consider “game” just a way for a man to increase his value, it’s clear to see how we’ll be doing it every day for the rest of our lives.

    I agree about the need to learn game skills to keep any girl you attract, whether in a monogamous relationship or friends with benefits. Learning cold approach is the foundation for this. You’ll never meet as many women through indirect methods. You need to interact with 1000s to get really good.

    that post was universal. Game is about adapting to your environment and getting what you want. Thats alpha,beta would be to miss out.

    For example a fat ugly but rich well connected businessman is king in Russia, while the dumb roided up aloof douchbag in america is king. But switch the 2 and theyll both be dry dick betas. Like lion is king of the jungle while shark is king of the ocean, but will die in each other’s domain.

    Every country and culture has ways to get women, but keeping them is a different ball game.

    Please, could someone point out to me a book to read as the very first, with which I can start learning Game?
    Maybe I should start as the very first with some of the books written by Roosh?
    The reason why I ask is that I came across this whole Game thing only after the recent Elliot Rodger shooting spree, which resonated deeply within me. And there is such an abundance of literature or information on the internet, that I really do not know where to start.
    Any advice? Thanks in advance.

    Thank you sir!
    Frankly, I did not expect an answer from The Man himself.
    I will definitely order and read both books.
    I have to say that this site and Return of Kings is a great inspiration for me to change my life!
    See, in my teens and twenties I was your typical Beta nice guy, without any sucess with women.
    I am not a virgin thank God, but I fucked more prostitutes (lots) than girlfriends (1 so far) or one-night stands (1 so far).
    So I turned to Heroin instead in my 20s. Now I am over 35 with a 10 year old Heroin addiction.
    So I decided to put down the needle, start going to the gym , trying to find a paying job, to pull my life together and start seducing my type of women, the types I always had a crush on but never dared to approach. Realising that women are interested in the real masculine man in me, whom I myself oppressed in myself because the TV and the Feminists said me to do so, came as a relevation. This is the first time in my life I actually feel free, when I am actually looking forward towards my future. I do not want to lay on my death-bed, thinking I wasted my youth without ever having sex with a woman of my type, let alone without having a son or a daughter from a wife… I set my goals and started going towards them.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

    Game is a result of social pathology. Because society is breaking down, the curve for game is hitting an exponential climb. Dating is now purely based on whatever a girl feels at a chosen moment. Men are just dildos only now. Most men I see with cute girls have nothing to offer and poor game. It is purely luck that the girl chose him and she prob hits other men on the side. Why else would the masterclass like roosh and krauser be in siberia? Expect a noticeable decline in western civilization due to feminism killing it soon.

    The best way I Iearned game was to not over think it. I put my happiness first and focus on myself. I dont focus too hard on picking up girls as much as I sort of bring an energy that they’re attracted to. I’m pretty good at being laid back and easy to talk to while also bringing an energy to the situation. I went to a party a few towns over where my friends go to college. I walk into the party and was incredibly happy to see them since it’s been over a year. I brought a really happy and positive energy and the fact that a lot of people at that party knew me and were happy to see me made one of the random girls there incredibly interested in me. Long story short we ended up hooking up. It’s all in the aura/energy for me.

    Where you live could just totally suck-
    In the deep South when you spit game these backward ass Country hos can get mad or are to shy to handle day game cold while NY or West Coast girls will at least hear you out.

    Location matters and that’s one of the things that sets Roosh and the Swoop crew (RVF Fam) apart in my mind from these marketer clowns out here saying that typical American brainwashing crap- its all your fault you make the environment-no some people suck and you cannot work with-If you had an MBA from Yale would you ask a bunch of rednecks in a hick Alabama town of 6500 how to do global branding, exporting strategy, SEO optimization, or strategic leadership? Hell to the no!

    Games no different-move to where the people are down to meet new people. If you post again (ill check) ill drop a few spots for you to consider.

    In the meantime, go do 10 cold approaches this weekend. And 5 thus week-hit up grocery stores, malls, book stores, coffee houses, the street.

    Lets make this a culture of action around here- do the approaches or relocate to get away from wack bishes fam-hit the block and go hard!

    I like your posts, if only because you’re one of the few regular commenters around here calling shit like it is. Unlike the typical PUAs, who are so annoying with their blind optimism, it’s like they’ve taken a blue pill of their own as a sort of coping mechanism.

    I agree with your observations entirely. The sex/dating market in the west is fucking DREADFUL and it looks like it will only get worse.

    You’re right. It is luck. Right timing is a factor. Many factors outside of anybody’s control are effecting the dating scene. Currently out of those unemployed 77% are under the age of 50 (37% Gen X, 40% Millennials). The first quarter of 2014 shrank 3%, the worse since 2009. The latest jobs report boasted 288,000 jobs created but omitted the economy lost over 700,000 full time jobs. Of those part time jobs created most were in the service sector.

    The dating scene in Murica is ridiculous.

    Man=devote hundreds of hours to the gym and hundreds more to diet just to get laid by non-disgusting woman

    woman=try not to let yourself get “too” fat while at the same time remaining unable to do one push up

    The man above still has to approach constantly and the woman above just sits and waits for thirsty dudes who are 7,8,9’s to approach her at her 5 or 6 level and buy her free food and drink and beg to fuck her.

    So yes, there are no shortcuts. Until men quit worshipping pussy and get their thirst under control this nonsense will get even worse.

    I was blessed with a naturally muscular body but I wonder if killing it in the gym for a year and getting a high 8 on lockdown is the best plan? I’m getting really sick and tired of the dating inequity and could stand some LTR downtime now that I am approaching 40.

    I guess my goal is to get a hottie 10-15 yrs younger than me on lockdown (LTR, possible marriage but no kids) and then only have sex with new girls that fall in my lap.

    I’m just fucking tired of fighting a losing battle in the USA dating culture.

  • anonymous

    I’m in my 20s and I’ve felt this way for years. I really don’t understand PUAs who grind it out for decades in the dating market. Talk about being suckers for punishment, good grief.

    The best plan for the good life is as you suggest. Have your reliable, go-to “maintenance” girl to keep the thirst away, and get some strange on the side whenever it falls into your lap somehow.

  • Jonathan Roseland

    The most effective gimmick or shortcut for getting laid is to live in a really pimp house or apartment close to the downtown nightlife district. Invite people over pre-drinks, invite people over to after party, your social circle will grow super fast… Other than just cold approaching a lot the highest leverage thing you can do to get laid.

  • Jonathan Roseland

    No. The correlation is based upon how popular she is and how ‘urban’ her social circle is… Urban guys are way more obnoxious about hitting on girls on social media, even a very average girl will get hundreds of likes on her photos if she has enough thirsty urban guys in her network.
    This is a great sign she’s going to be a waste of your time…

  • awakened

    That was nothing more than social circle college game.

    It was absolutely the easiest way I ever found to get laid.

    I’m not trying to degrade you but your “energy” didn’t have shit to do with you hooking up there. It was nothing more than a very high opportunity situation.

    Strong social circle approval, party, alcohol, single women present, college crowd…………….and you chalk this up to your “really happy and positive energy”? What got you laid was not having B.O. and being present.

    You were fishing in a small pond when all the conditions were perfect.

    No shortcut? What about prostitution?

    Most westerners immediately conjure up the image of chasing drug addicted skanks in American slums while avoiding law enforcement, all for an expensive but unsatisfactory quickie… but it’s not like that everywhere.

    There are still a few places in the world where pretty much anyone with a pulse can pay a nice girl to spend anything from an hour to several days with him, and it doesn’t cost all that much nor does it require picking up any significant skills beyond the ability to board an airplane.

    Sure, with the rise of the internet these places are becoming worse, and girls can be hit-and-miss, but they still exist, and you’re virtually guaranteed to stumble upon a good one within 2-5 days or so, if not earlier.

    Frankly, the only advantage that a one-night stand has over a good GFE (girlfriend experience) working girl from the Philippines or Thailand is the ego boost (from making the conquest and being sure she genuinely likes you). In terms of total cost, time, comfort, overall pleasure of human interaction, quality of sex, hotness of girls… prostitution wins outright (in the right place, of course).

  • anon1

    Not necessarily. Girls can fake a lot. For instance there is a girl in my office that has a bit of a cross eye thing going a 6 in looks and the most graining personality I have ever known. But if you look her up on Facebook she looks like a solid 8 hottie orbiters would jerk off over. Facebook is managed social camouflage that’s all it is. Covering ones deficiencies with careful use of shots.

  • anon1

    Great post which actually does well to explain capitalisms innate realistic take on life an social mechanisms. There is always a cost and opportunity cost of doing business. What happens is that people percieve certain things to be a cost and not others.

    So a guy going hard and heavy in the gym would see getting hit on by chicks as an ancillary benefit to his gym work (even though he likely went after the body first to get the chicks, the dopamine hit from working out makes it its own reward). He would not ‘percieve’ it to be a cost.

    Similarly with social circle and club game.

    But in the case of cold approaches its different. Why is that? Because of that all encompassing fear of rejection. The only immediate observable benefit of a cold approach is a bang or no bang, relationship or no relationship. Roosh i know there’s something to be said for the chase but if you had a girl who could change her appearance, name, voice, sexual style, scent and pussy at will to a different person every day would you be all that thirsty to cold approach? I don’t think you would.

    So while the ancillary benefits of cold approaching are numerous and not domain specific, the initial benefits are not perceived to be many.

    And that’s why a guy will happily spend time on his business, or in the gym, hitting a good social circle or getting leverage in the right clubs but will hesitate on that approach with a fresh faced young thing when their is no rapport established yet.

    Its all about perception of costs and benefits.

    First off go back to school and learn how to write a coherent message. Your post looks like a teenagers text message.

    Next quit acting like a pussy. If you are getting dumped by 4 or 5’s that is your fucking problem. Why in the fuck are you in relationships with 4/5’s? Unless you are a real ugly fucker you should have 5’s cleaning your house and taking cooking classes to prepare you better meals.

    4’s and 5’s are for pump and dumps when you are desperate, they are rich, or you are letting them buy you things.

    I messed around with a busted 5 once because I knew she had money. She gave me an Omega watch for my birthday. I accepted the watch with ZERO guilt.

  • manmade

    I completely agree. When I pay a pretty girl and pay one fifth of money and especially time (which is worth more than money), and I walk out after a good cum with no fuss whatsoever, I myself think ‘why the hell wasting my time chasing some drunk wasted sluts in a bar?’ often I even find prostitutes who are quite likeable people, they respect you as someone who made a fair transaction, they are friendly and unless you do some stupid shit, they treat you well. Occasionally, there are the crazier ones, but here’s the thing: they are no different than any other crazier women. But I never just pay a girl, I always scan the web for reviews (yes you often find reviews). So really, who gives a shit? I have no time to chase a girl for 2 days to get her in the sac and then probably it’s over anyways. Even millionnaires and top actors turn to prostitution, people who say it’s for losers and all that stupid shit, don’t know what the hell they are talking about. I myself always shunned prostitutes, before I actually tried it and had good experiences. Some bad ones too, but nothing to worry about, the worst that happened is that I changed my mind, said I didn’t want to fuck her after all, got my money back and left. Women are OVERRATED, the truth is, you can buy some pussy as if you were buying any commodity.

    not to mention, a genuine achiever doesn’t put other people down for going to the gym or raising their perceived status or value in such ways. People are free to do whatever they want until they harm no one. So, no, there’s no ‘inadequuacies’, asshole. As oppose as you, I pat someone on the back for going to the gym or doing anything worthwhile, but obviously snotties like you didn’t have to put their ass in gear to change their reality. You probably have the money or the looks and you feel entitled feeling like you are better than other people. Well, bad news, you can kiss my ass and everybody else’s here :)

    The gay scenes not that huge and even if it was- who cares? It’s their life’s-not my business and it’s a waste of time to over-analyze the homo’s neighborhoods.

    SF and Seattle suck for women. On the West Coast you have Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, LA, San Diego.

    The only other cities worth it in the West are Las Vegas, Boise, Scottsdale, Tempe, Boulder.

  • Ian

    Seattle (and Vancouver) are the best up in Pine Tree land but it does suck for men-grey skies, feminazis, but has food, wineries, rivers, nature, skiing, art, music-it could be worse aka Portland.

    Id take Sacramento over Boise-Boise sucks-small, country ass, and Mid-West lame vibe.

    I agree on the whole Phoenix metro area-very true.

    Santa Barbaras almost part of LA-its not far up there.

    Man Diego us full of Marines, bros, and Cross Fit Becky’s-ut’s ok-but like an Ed Hardy Frat Party.

    SFO is a place people either love or hate-there are worse places. Saulsalito, Point Reyes, Hayward-it could be much worse.

    I think you have that reversed at least here in NYC, cash rules.
    Your better off being wealthy and average looking vs. being good looking and poor. When I see an attractive women with a plain looking dude with zero game If bored I will follow them. Once I see what the Man drives usually answers that question… BMW’s and Mercedes are a dime o dozen here.

    These men should just find a Prostitute and $P4P and then they will get there 7-8-9. Before you start giving me the sermon, whether dating, Married or with a hooker you pay for the sex.

    Maintenance plans are nice but what do you do when the Warranty Expires?

    Man up stop being such an entitled, conformist, prick.
    Do Drugs then you will meet a lot of willing women and have easy sex available.

    Not everyone should have children and maybe in case that’s a good thing also a book on English Grammar should be on your bucket list.

    Wow, silly of me, it’s that easy, Just spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a nice house or high end apartment, thousands more on furniture not to mention food, liquor, and costs when guests trash my place. I guess I missed that lesson in school… Think about Jon, If you can throw money at problem you don’t need PUA.. If the Alpha next to brags about his game, just say Hey want to see my Jewelry collection?

  • Veni Vidi Vici

    Agreed no real competition for the kitty.
    Real PUA’s don’t have friends only wingmen…

    Whatever happened to having passions for passion’s sake, socializing with people who share the same passion and landing the girl as a reward for having found your natural expression of power and blazing everyone in the room with it?
    Getting laid is not the objective there, only the indirect, unexpected reward of having gotten more manly and successful.

    Now where I agree with you is that if you don’t have game, i.e. if you don’t know how to keep frame during a LTR then you’ll end up being betafied by said girl.

    But really? Getting laid is THE objective, you think? You’re just a waving, traveling dick then?

    As I said “Other than just cold approaching a lot the highest leverage thing you can do to get laid.”

    Here’s my old place place, if you can afford it. Do it!

    Two issues here. First, there is a different IMO between Game and simply understanding human (women in particular) psychology and what makes them tick. I don’t really call my offline skills Game because I just think of it as my methods for getting a woman to lower her guard and get to know me. No one likes the pushy salesperson. I would argue if you worry less about getting over on a chick through manipulations and more about understanding what makes her tick and how to connect with her, you have a WAY higher chance of getting in her pants and keeping her around as long as you would like.

    Second, I couldn’t disagree more about how easy it is to find women here in the US. I date almost exclusively 18-24 yo and I am nearly 50. I am successful but no Bill Gates. I am reasonably attractive and fit but no George Clooney. If you choose the right method to meet women (online only) and have your shit together, you can meet and sleep with hundreds of young, beautiful women. I average 4-5 new women a month, none below a 7, rarely older than 24.

    The KEY is how things are setup from the beginning. If you allow a woman to dictate the power dynamic then you are screwed. It is all in the setup. I recently started seeing this 20 year old. Super intelligent and extremely attractive. Every man she has ever dated was wrapped around her finger. I simply don’t allow that. I set it up correctly from the start and I don’t allow her to backslide. She text me a winey message “You didn’t even ask about my day.” I responded, “We will discuss it tonight.” When we met last night I told her “Do we have an issue? What was that bullshit message about me not asking about your day?” She was really just testing her boundaries and you simply cannot allow it. She apologized and asked me how she could make it up to me. :)

    Take control. DEMAND control. Accept no bad behavior EVER.

    There is a shortcut known to smart and sane men, and it is called prostitution.

    PUA Pussy Pedestalizers may find it a foreign concept though. They’d rather move halfway across the world than drive halfway across town. Lolz.

    So, sacrifice your life making yourself attractive to women so you can pick up skanks and delusionals online.

    Can I give you $10 grand to teach me? Please?

    Good article. I don’t “game” much, but i spend a lot of time in the gym and i have a pretty good job. There is no such thing as “easy sex” for a man.
