I've not been here that long, but two posts that stand out are these:

HumanSockPuppets Guide to Teasing Bitches

Every aspect of this post will work with women, the tone and style of it even matches the kind of teasing attitude it is advocating. It's well written and a goldmine.


The next one is nothing to do with sexual strategy, there's not many posts that have a profound change on the way I see the world and myself, this one did, extremely insightful.

Narcissism and self-esteem cannot coexist

[–][deleted] 92 points93 points  (4 children)



It's the greatest single piece written on gaming women ever. Nothing will come close to this and it's written by a fucking anon.

One part that just too Redpill for society...

"I've spent a lot of my time studying women and interacting with them, and I know how they are. In fact, sometimes I hate knowing it. Sometimes I wish I had taken the blue pill, and never went down the rabbit hole, Because now there's really no going back. I didn't want to believe these things... but how can I ever get married now? "

[–]throw17453 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That was in the original post, 4th link down.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (0 children)

My bad, but hopefully this draws more people to actually read it all as it is so damn valuable. Also:


Worth the read. Somewhere in recent history men have forgotten about a women's true nature.

[–]RmX93 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Husbands of a nice chicks hates him :)

this guy fucks

[–]nedshepherd 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Highly agree with you. The second post was an eye-opener

[–]I_AM_CALAMITY 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Any tips to replace the frame described?

[–]Dildobagginsaa 96 points97 points  (14 children)

Im up to 18 women in 3 years of being sexually active. I've never wanted to commit suicide more than discovering the reality of this silly sex utopia we live in. Red pill is true, but it will not make you happy. You'll be the same miserable sap, just with a wet dick and some notches.

[–]JackGetsIt 82 points83 points  (0 children)

This, thankfully, is actually discussed on redpill quite a bit. It's just another reason you don't 'improve' for women. You improve for yourself.

[–]yomo86 22 points23 points  (3 children)

The paradigm shift occurs. Suddenly you want to learn an instrument, be politically active or become the best of the best at your job.

We all have been fed lies that the pussy of a woman is paramount. That putting up with nagging and duty sex is a necessary evil. Well it's not.

Female attention is one key element to happyness in a man's psyche but by far not the only one.

People like Michael Jackson, Moses Browning, Mike Tyson and even Bill Gates could and to some degree are drowning in wet nubile pussy but they working towards a greater goal - overcoming the human lifespan and futility by throwing their social legacy into the future.

[–]1TheReindeerGuy 4 points5 points  (1 child)

That paradigm shift is the probably the best thing in the world. All of the sudden life is so different, so much better, and full of possibility. Whereas before it was just a mindless ride of which sometimes hoped it wouldn't take too long.

I can truly say that taking the red pill has made me happier man, for a part because I don't focus on women any more.

[–]SetConsumes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Great, so now we're all immortal and living on every inhabitable rock in existence and forever chasing pussy in an endless circlejerk of pointlessness.

[–]whuttupfoo 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Yeah actually that chase for sex makes people do bad things. It's everywhere. Everyone you know puts sex on a high pedestal both men and women and they will do anything to get it even if it means stepping over you.

[–]good_guy_submitter 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Once you've adopted the redpill you realize how easy sex is to attain. The hard thing to attain is currency and maximization of your own potential with your body (fitness) and mind (self education).

I've moved beyond all that, slept with dozens of women before I settled down and am raising a family. Now my challenges are managing the mother of my children whom I will be with until they are grown and managing myself.

[–]1ozaku7 -4 points-3 points  (4 children)

This. Only you can make yourself happy by also having a realistic view on the world. Tho being depressed in your hypercar and a wet dick sounds better than cheap beer in your Toyota Corolla anyday.

[–]Red_SL4 1 point2 points  (3 children)

From the outside maybe. But the guy that's miserable in his Ferrari couldn't care less about the car.
The good news is that depression is a temporary state for he who chooses to fight it, mentally and physically.

[–]1ozaku7 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I agree with that aswell. Look at how many people are miserable, yet there are people in third world countries with much worse conditions and are happier.

[–]Red_SL4 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Yup. I truly think depression is curable with sheer willpower. It's just so hard to see the light when you've lived years as a slave of your dark thoughts.

[–]1ozaku7 2 points3 points  (0 children)

People with depression need a change of perspective, but it's not so easy as willpower tho. It's actually convincing yourself that something is fun, while you find it really boring. It's the opposite of being impressed, so you could say that depressed people are indifferent towards anything in life, and they get sad that they can't enjoy life anymore. So they have to find that fun thing to do. Essentially, we are just being that are constantly on drugs, and depression is like kicking off from life. It fucking sucks.

[–]1ozaku7 10 points11 points  (5 children)

What is truly baffling, that you can visualize RedPill in 1 picture, 1 scene, or 1 feeling. I have no real way of describing it, but it becomes a sense, and you know whether it makes sense or not. Much like you can feel being part of your car, knowing where the sides, front and rear are so you don't bump into objects while you are driving. Or being able to pick up a drink just by knowing it's location, without looking at it. A true master of RedPill FEELS what is right, and what is wrong, without thinking. It becomes second nature like driving a car, walking or swimming. An ability that you can't unlearn and can't do any worse than before, you can only grow. These things were difficult to master, but now one is able to do these things without thinking, even wondering off into daydreams and not realizing what they are REALLY doing.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (4 children)

How does one get to this stage?

[–]Sirkisskindofman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Experience. Go out there and fail. Swallow whatever bullshit excuse you have in your head, and shit out attempts to talk to women. Only through experience are you going to, not only feel, but also, see and realize failure is an amazingly potent teacher. Bitch blows you off? Pfff, I got this other ho I'm currently talking to somewhere else who just slaps me on the shoulder, with a smile, when I call her a bitch to her face. Waiting for an Uber downtown? Talk up girls walking by while you wait. Quick two, three sentence exchange between the both of you is all it takes to practice texting game. Always Be Closing. Learn from those failures and eventually you'll see success happen naturally, because you now know how to avoid those mistakes you had to make, in order to learn from them. Of course, if you apply common sense in your learning road, it'll cut the learning time down, but brute force attempts are at least STILL FORWARD PROGRESS. Ad Victorium, Bruh.

[–][deleted] 30 points31 points  (2 children)

I'd add the book of Pook of course. It is probably one of the most influential things the sphere has put out.

[–]RedPillAlphaBigCock 2 points3 points  (0 children)

agreed - It's in quite a different form rather than do xyz. It will shift your entire mindset and in turn will fix all the small intricacies of your game

[–]Endorsed ContributorWe_Are_Legion 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I agree with this a thousand percent.

If there are men who could read only one reference book from the entire red pill, then I would tell them to consume the Book of Pook.

Wow! The mythical original source of Game. But the legend said it had been lost forever.. Cheers!

[–]Metalbear55 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Anon's 'so you want to get fucking laid ' is one of the most brutal and straight edge post I've ever encountered

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

One of my favorite parts was, would you trust a dog with a steak if both were alone, of course you would not but it's not the dogs fault.

That is brilliant.

[–]TheRationalMale.comRollo-Tomassi 13 points14 points  (9 children)

Bear in mind that Roosh essentially disowned TRP right after his 'spiritual enlightenment' and Neomasculinity.

[–]Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat[S] 4 points5 points  (7 children)

Yep I remember, and here's my opinion on the matter of Roosh: http://archive.is/1AUxB

But political bickering interests me less than practical information. There was a good reason why Roosh was considered one of the forefathers of the manosphere: his Game writing are some of the best ("Bang" is 10 years old and still consistently gets me laid), his views on neomasculinity/redpill/whatever are on point (mostly, I disagree with the need for religion at a personal level, though I agree with it at a societal level in the form of a set of morals), and his talent as an author is evident, so his writings are worth reading IMO.

If you were to "see the light" one day and disown the redpill, I would still recommend everything you wrote. Because your writings are on point. If you were to "sell out", I would say "good on you!", you deserve to be a fricking millionaire for what you did for men worldwide. Even if you were to publicly regret everything you wrote, I would still recommend it (unless of course you could make an excellent case against it, which is bloody not likely).

[–]good_guy_submitter -1 points0 points  (6 children)

The truth a out religion is that we need it as a society. There are stupid people that just can't live without it and we need it for them.

[–]Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat[S] 13 points14 points  (5 children)

As a citizen from a long-secular west european country with a mostly atheist population, I disagree. I think what is needed is the common byproduct of religion: a strong set of community-enforced morals underpinning a common culture. Not religion itself. Though I won't deny that in practice, a state religion is the best answer to fulfill such need.

At a personal level, men solely need a Mission and sex, and women need children.

[–]good_guy_submitter 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Eh look at the comeback Russia is making. Largely due to Christianity, not secularism. Churches bring people together like a Harry Potter reading club, except it's much more socially acceptable.

I could never believe the BS, but I attend churches some times to meet people.

I've put the fundamental argument that destroys all religion into a single sentence: In order to believe in God you must first believe in man, for god never speaks for himself.

[–]1TheReindeerGuy 4 points5 points  (2 children)

a strong set of community-enforced morals underpinning a common culture. Not religion itself. Though I won't deny that in practice, a state religion is the best answer to fulfill such need.

These days a lot of states simply use ideology instead of religion for that (one might argue they are the same). The most prevalent ideology being the combination of liberalism and capitalism. It's just that these ideologies hold individuality, freedom and feelings so dear that it almost seems that there is no more morality or enforcement. But actually the morality is that you are not allowed to repress someone who stands out, or that someone doesn't matter, or someone's feelings don't matter and that he just shouldn't be such a cry-baby. Basically you shouldn't be normal because that is boring. This all the just opposite of the usual tightly set standard to which people are supposed to conform to in a religion or ideology.

So the thing missing is not the morals, it is the community. That has slowly been eroded by our drive to be individuals. Now the functions of the community have simply been taken over by the state and the free market, think about welfare, pensions or health insurance, in the past these things were provided by your community. You would even meet your partner through your community (it doesn't matter if the marriage or meeting was arranged or not, you simply met new people through your community because that is where most of your social interactions were), now you meet your partner on the internet or going to a bar.

So now no one will ostracize you if you cheat and divorce, because what matters is you, your feelings, and your happiness. The sanctity of your marriage is subservient to that. Besides your community had no part in your marriage so what do they care.

In short, there are still morals, but the community is dead and the nuclear family is sick or dying. However we need neither for a man to have a mission and sex, and for a woman to have children.

[–]Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Nicely put. But you could argue the community still is here in a way, in another form as well: feminists, SJWs, indy car fans, TRPers. What do you think?

Also, mind developing your last paragraph? My belief in the individual needs of men and women comes from the observation that men without sex or mission end up depressed and women without children end up crazy, but men/women can live very well without religion

[–]1TheReindeerGuy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nicely put. But you could argue the community still is here in a way, in another form as well: feminists, SJWs, indy car fans, TRPers. What do you think?

True, these are communities, just like the red pill is. However these are very loose communities. This means that there is not a lot of enforcement of shared values, especially if they are outside of the limited scope of the community. The strength of the community is dependent on the amount of time you share together. So a group of indy car fans meeting every once in a while for an event won't be strong. Members can easily enter, leave and also misbehave if it doesn't really affect the group. For example a know car thief could easily be welcome as long as he doesn't steal the a car of the members. On the other hand a group of feminists in college who live, eat, study and party together would be a tight community enforcing rules a lot more effectively. However the grip is quickly lost once members are out of college and interactions with the community decreases.

I think you can see how such modern communities are very different from being born into a community in which you live your entire life. This is the kind of community you see less often. People are part of their work community during the week, the indy car community on Saturday, and the church community on Sunday.

Also, mind developing your last paragraph? My belief in the individual needs of men and women comes from the observation that men without sex or mission end up depressed and women without children end up crazy, but men/women can live very well without religion

I totally agree that this hold true for an individual. Your life is a lot better if you give it some purpose. But society doesn't really need you to have this, except for maybe the kids, a society doesn't last long without reproduction. Though a case good be made that a society would do a lot better if everyone had a mission in life instead of going around mindlessly.

Enormous value here OP.

LaidNYC's archives are gold too, informative yet easy/fun to read like The Book of Pook.

[–]RmX93 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Blue pill seems comfortable and brings happyness thats why.

[–]purplecabbage 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I like Shining Pearls of Something but it reads like it was written by a TRP man.

[–]Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah I don't believe it was written by a woman either. Still good though

[–]BuzzedNig 4 points5 points  (0 children)

In regards to the first article

"Fuck that shit brah, you can either be a sick cunt or you can be a sad cunt, don't be a sad cunt brah"

I think the very best intorduction to red pill and all things related is this: http://www.singularity2050.com/2010/01/the-misandry-bubble.html

[–]whenfoom 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Great crop. A good refresher read for someone who's been away from trp for awhile.

[–]10211799107 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm going to make this my February goal for the "Game" category in my Self-Improvement list. I've been through the Red Pill Handbook twice and wonder how many guys make it an active effort to always refresh all the material.

I agree that this sub has received lesser quality posts recently. I switched to browsing the top 20 or so posts every week. Works to get some better posts and filter the shit. I bookmarked this, February will be a major review month.

[–]2renzy77 2 points3 points  (1 child)

F. Roger Devlin, the author of the sidebar article Sexual Utopia in Power, has written a number of articles relevant to TRP:


His Rotating Polyandry article that covers female infidelity is incredibly revealing.

[–]Pkm_Hydro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That Rotating Polyandry short is honestly one of the scariest things I've read. Jessus I already planned on not even entertaining the thought of marriage till 30 but Jessus in a sandwich i feel bad for "normal" people.

[–]meh613 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I think this would be better flaired red pill theory than red pill example?

[–]Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I'm pretty sure that's what I did... perhaps mods changed it

[–]meh613 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Whatever it was, it's not flaired red pill theory anymore. No big deal.

[–]cottinmouth 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think that pua is a scam. Yareally is the only person who makes me doubt it. And he is an anon so I can't verify what he says. Just that it makes sense.

I have a feeling he is associated with rsd somehow.

[–]Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You doubting saint thomas needs to find a buddy with good Game, go out with him, see him work his magic and go back home with a girl. Then maybe you'll start wondering that perhaps you should "verify" whether it's a scam or not, rather than "thinking" it is.

[–]354999556 points points [recovered]

What about books? The topic comes up every now and then, but there's no one stop list that people seem to agree on, there's always a bunch of extra books people suggest in those threads.

[–]Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

There's no official list and order, but here's my must-read list: http://archive.is/uSJgj

[–]354999556 points points [recovered]

Thanks, this is the list I have in my backlog.

[–]Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yep my comment was on a post made by the same author of the post you reference. It was his third version. This guy is an avid reader so worth following what he adds to his list.

[–]Lionsamongsheep 1 point2 points  (0 children)

wow awesome stuff thank you.

[–]temerarious 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I tried to post this, but I think it got caught in the filters.

Excellent video from Jordan Peterson.


This was a response to the podcast he did with Sam Harris. This just seemed to me to be a very succinct summary of redpill theories by a voice that carries a little more weight in the academic world than any other I've seen posted here.

[–]royallprick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Has anyone been able to get a PDF or a copy of that one Marc Rudov book that's impossible to find? Prices on Amazon for it are ridiculous!

Sticky or sidebar material

it's amazing how many people agreed with me then, but now, I have a feeling it wouldn't get quite as warm of a reception.

Here is the original post to the newsgroup post at alt.support.shyness back in 2003 that is quoted in the picture you are posting "Anon - So you want to get fucking laid? Here's how."


[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Instead of curating everything we've already read, why don't you write us a quality post?

[–]Endorsed ContributorAuvergnat[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I don't want to be part of what I believe is the reddit cancer that is the hordes of newbies who feel they understood it all and post the result of their flawed/limited understanding, only to be upvoted to the top by other newbies who also have a flawed/limited understanding but emotionally connected with said crappy contents. This lowers the quality of content dramatically, and worse, tends to shift the direction of the subs away from the initial direction imposed by qualified mods. To me that "reddit model" of knowledge transmission is deeply flawed. Knowledge should be only be transmitted through the good old teacher/student model.

I mean. Sure I feel like I know my TRP right. And I even start drafting posts sometimes. But how can I know I am not a blind man about to lead other blind men to the edge of the cliff?

Accordingly, I decided right from the start that I'll only post my own material when I empirically qualify as a "teacher". That is, when I have been deemed to be an endorsed contributor (if it ever happens) AND that I have concrete evidence of having successfully integrated redpill knowledge into my life, aka having a few plates on rotation, a permanent PRIZE mentality and abundance mentality, and its corollary: a complete eradication of every remnant of ONEitis in my psyche.

Until then, I only qualify as a student and refrain on posting, allowing myself to comment to aid my integration of redpill knowledge. Only twice I couldn't resist posting, but in both cases I ensured it was good content by posting not my own opinion but curated content.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I get that. I'm right there with you. I suffer from the same kinda stuff. I am still trying to kill the beta and it is hard as hell when, despite a crappy mother, I was raised to treat people as you would like to be treated. I nearly relapsed and have had to, yet again, become a student. I am still trying to understand how women, being "more mature" than us growing up, are now children. And how they never see the big picture. I understand your intentions much more clearly. Thanks for the clarification.
