The Ego Test

Samseau’s boner test is a spectacular game innovation. Using it in Denmark has made me realize that my ego has been playing a big part of the girls I choose to bang. It turns out that my dick gets hard for 5s or 6s, so a combination of the boner test plus the inhospitable Copenhagen environment meant that I was banging some very mediocre girls there. The boner test dictated that I bang those 5s and 6s, so I did, especially since it was hard to find 7s and above in what turned out to be one of the ugliest cities I’ve ever stepped foot in.

I don’t mind banging a 6 every now and then, but the boner test seems to select for the 5s and 6s. If you’re solely using the boner test then it’s unlikely you’ll get above a 7 since it would be superfluous to the aim of the test. You become too focused on your nut for the night, banging girls you don’t want to see again. This means your new pussy acquisition costs are quite high since you’re not building a harem of chicks for those off-nights where you don’t feel like working. Therefore we need a new test that accounts for quality, and yes, ego.

The Ego Test: Would you want to see her again in public when the sun is out, while sober?

Would you want to grab an iced coffee with her on a nice summer afternoon? Would you want to hold her hand walking through the mall while she shops for a new toaster? If not then you must realize that the chick you’re about to bang will be a one-and-out, and the next weekend you’ll still have to hunt.

I will use both tests depending on the local talent. If it’s horrid like Washington DC or Copenhagen, where getting decent quality may take an extended period of time, I’ll use the boner test, get my nut for the night, and be thankful for it. But if I’m in a quality environment, I’m switching to the ego test. Otherwise I’m selling myself short. If there are pretty girls in your city, there’s no excuse why you shouldn’t be going for them, regardless of what your boner is telling you.

Unfortunately, ego will play a part in our conquests. Otherwise we would just be getting drunk and banging nothing but hogs. While the boner test chipped at my after-sex happiness when I caught sight of the specimens that remained on my bed, I believe using it is your best bet if you’re stuck in mediocre environments like America, Denmark, Peru, or Bolivia. But when you’re in a place like Brazil or Poland, feed the ego and enjoy the ride.

It really comes down on how you are using wood (so to speak).

If you are swooping “one-and-out’s” you are throwing wood on the fire.

If you are swooping girls that pass “The Ego Test” you are using wood to build a house (ie a Team of fly girls).

Sometimes it is good to have a diversified portfolio in these times of economic trouble.

Of course…

1. If there are a ton of girls who satisfy the boner, why not indulge yourself?

2. Hotter girls give waaaay better boners.

The point of the boner test is to help guys figure out what they want, as opposed to what they THINK they want. Become one with the boner.

What’s so bad about Copenhagen? I think Danish women are great.

@Y – I went to Copenhagen about a month ago and Roosh is right. 7+ girls are rare there. The average girl is about a 4.

Most of the girls have hideous fashion sense (frumpy grandma shorts, loose blouses, flip flops) and a lot of them sport that god awful “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” hairstyle (shoulder length, half the head is shaved). Plus Danish is an ugly language. The Swedes describe Danish as sounding like “trying to speak Swedish with a dick in the mouth.”

What about in Argentina? I’m on a 4 month dry spell and its partly because I don’t let myself go for the 5s and 6s because there’s tons of 7,8 and 9s…. but they won’t bang me…. yet!

LOL! Great comment. Sad comment, considering I live in America, but great comment.

Dont some girls give the boner for different reasons that might not be related to looks. Like maybe she talks dirty or has a certain mannerism? I think that its like money in your wallet…..have some 5s, 10s,20s,50s 100s….

That really sounds to me like some game novice, beta crap, maybe its targeted to some of your younger readers.
Before I even knew what game was, I would be at events like a wedding party, and choose the mediocre girl over the hotter girl that wasn’t a sure thing, based on the conventional wisdom “bird in hand worth two in the bush.”
But when you are higher up the foodchain, and know who you are and what you are worth, there are no excuses.
I would never stick my dick in a 5 or 6, unless there was some serious kink involved, like she was a virgin engaged to one of my cousins or something.

A lot of girls who pass the boner test on the first night won’t pass it on the second. A girl has to be very cute for me to bang her more than a few times.

I switched from using just the boner test to using more of the ego test after being in the game for a while. Of course, I didn’t have a name for it, I just thought of it as raising my standards.

Your brain has a million reasons why it may like a girl, but your dick has only one.

Your brain has a 10+ point scale for fitting a girl in the logarithmic curve of hotness. Your dick is binary.

To think your brain and your dick agree on anything would be a mistake. I’ve been with cute girls I couldn’t get it up with, and had a raging boner for girls who friends were surprised I bothered with.

“Samseau: Would you say there is a point of diminishing boner where increased attractiveness no longer increases boner strength?”

This is a difficult question. I suppose this will vary from man to man.

Personally, the hotter she is the stronger my boner with almost no diminishing returns. I agree with Roissy for the most part:

http://heartiste.wordpress.com/2007/08/30/hotter-women-better-sex/

But hell, nothing is constant. I remember a 29-year old I banged, it took me 30 min to shoot a massive load, and after that I was done.

But with a 22-year old, who was less attractive than the 29-year old, except being almost 8 years younger, I came in less than 2 min but my dick stayed semi-hard and I just kept going.

For sure though, I enjoyed the 29-yr old more than the 22 yr-old because she was prettier overall, but the youth thing helped my motivated my dick to rise once more.

Part of the problem is that boner strength can be measured in so many ways;

1. the amount of times you bust a nut
2. the hardness of your wood
3. the duration of your boner

and all of these factors seem to be reacting to different qualities on the girl. Younger girls, for example, give my dick more motivation to get hard again after shooting a load than older ones, but they do not necessarily become more stiff or stay harder longer between loads.

Boner science is very complicated and I do not fully understand it myself. It seems to be different for each man and responds to different things in different girls. In general, prettier is better, but there is tons of room for variation in sex quality.

What are your thoughts?

Roosh, please tell me why Colombia isn’t mentioned in the same class as Brazil, and Poland. I do hope to find out someday for myself. I’ve been to Medellin several times….didn’t think many places could rival it

Man, Roosh, what’s up with all these beautiful Eastern Europeans ladies married or in relationships with ugly trolls?

Where I am in Canada, they almost all are… It’s ridiculous.

It must be like shooting fish in a barrel over there.

There seems to be sort of a trend where I see attractive girls with these fat schulbs,and I see it this way.maybe its american media promoting this trend,on tv with shows like King of Queens,shit even as far back as the Honey Mooners.Could it all be tv brain washing us.That beta guys are in the end the true ideal catches for the new breed of “woman”(feminist.)

If you want pretty girls you should choose Norway as ur next desitination!

If you don`t get a boner here you must have a serious medical problem. You need a “top-game” and get them down from the pedestal, then rebuild and they`ll be yours…

Check out israel man, the girls there are fantastic. The Mediterranean coast guarrantees sun tanned women and the assimilation of jewish cultures provides beautiful brunettes with amazing bodies. As an added bonus they love American men. To land one you need to be more aggressive than for American women but once you get em they’re yours.

Not all of America Is DC
The old song is corny but its accurate saying “I wish they all could be California girls”- incouldntnagree more. I honestly think that whole grid from DC to Boston and Cleveland to Detroit is just like a cold, ugly, grey commie industrialized hell hole. I California I’m like a doable dog chasing cars when I go to a beach plaza or mall- the talent there is unreal. California girls are the best. Man I’ve met all races of gorgeous women frommaces I didn’t know existed. You need to go to California- if you like down to Earth more plain girls head to NorCal for an ethnic buffet of designer clothes wearing beauties go to SoCal. PS- I’ve seen a boat load of talent in Santa Barbara on The city pier- Stearns Wharf all those fine UCSB girls out at the restaurants and bars on State Street too.
