Red Pill Primer - Sidebar Made Simple

December 30, 2016

Mod note: It's been over a year since I originally posted this, but it's worth posting it again for new members and for updated feedback as a lots happened since then.

New here? Read the following threads below. If you've read the rules, then you know this is required before posting anyway.


What is The Red Pill

This thread explains why we are here and what our mission focus is. The short version is we're help each other understand and leverage to our advantage:

  • Game
  • Acknowledging reality for what it is
  • Men and women's sexual strategies and how they differ

Glossary and Terms

In addition to glossary and terms, this thread also includes some key theory pieces you'll need to understand if you're going to spend any time here.

Background Reading

The entries below serve as the backdrop of why we're here and over the years have helped shape our mission focus.

Men Are Not Happy
The Misandry Bubble
Michael's Story <- CTRL-F "Michael"
Confessions of a reformed incel
The Manipulated Man
The Polygamous Sex
Gender Studies is Nonsense

Theory Reading

Once you've fully digested the above material move on to the theory reading below. Each section is broken down into phases to help you better understand and reinforce the core concepts and philosophies TRP espouses.

Phase 1: The essential differences between how men and women love.

Women In Love and Men In Love
These articles do a great job at contrasting the differences in how romance is expressed by men and women. We now know, contrary to popular belief, it's men who are the true romantics of society. A follow-up to this is Of Love and War, which is best summarized with the line "women’s concept of love isn’t what men would be led to believe it is."

Schedules of Mating
Anyone familiar with women's monthly cycles knows full well that women's preferences change. So too does their desires and attraction to masculine and effeminate men. The main takeaway here is that during ovulation women show more skin and tend to prefer more dominant and "alpha" traits in men. It's also a great read because it's one of the manophers's first great delves into women's pluralistic mating strategy.

Two principle types of love
An early dive into frame control, a topic that Rollo Tomassi has since expanded upon greatly over the last couple years at his blog The Rational Male.

Phase 2: Women's pluralistic and mercenary approach to relationships.

Briffault's Law
This thread delves deeper into Briffault's Law, a core concept, and some corollaries that describe how women do not express loyalty to beta men for provisioning and protection previously provided by the male.

On Value and the Value of Women
The value men and women bring to the table is different, an artifact of how our sexual strategies differ. Women's value is from being whereas men's value is from doing. For a woman to have sex, she just has to show up and men will throw themselves at her. For a man, he has to dance to her tune and be high status and this and that and the other. Men seek sex from women, not the other way around. Instead women screen for which man she'll have sex with of the myriad of men seeking to have sex with her.

Hypergamy 101: Women view men how men see jobs

Hypergamy 102: Her Perception and Context Means Everything

Phase 3: Freeing your mind of "blue pill" social programming.

Powertalk 101
This is a great primer on the mental gymnastics and power plays in language and how subterfuge can be employed by women to dupe men who are not aware of the subtext being intoned.

Red Pill Antibiotic Nuke and Red Pill Video Compilation Nuke
This further expands on some of the concepts found in the Glossary and Terms thread above.

Sexual Strategy is Amoral
Game/sexual strategy itself doesn't have intrinsic moral value; it's all about how you use it.

Phase 4: Understanding power, agency, and the tyranny of hypoagency.

Sexual Utopia in Power
This article discusses how marriage and monogamy constrained women's hypergamy to the benefit of civilization. For those not familiar with history, Henry IV once said, "I want there to be no peasant in my realm so poor that he will not have a chicken in his pot every Sunday." Hoover later used that same line in his presidential campaign. Marriage and monogamy and social mores limiting women to one partner served to provide for men a sexual equivalent of "a chicken in every pot". Doing so was good because it served as the incentive that drove men to create civilization as we know it. Where harems for elite men exist and large swaths of men go without sexual access, societal upheaval follows.

The Covert Reason Women Hate Male Spaces
The internet has given rise to a new kind of support group or men's club, where men can compare notes and figure out for themselves if a woman is being shady or not. This takes away power women have enjoyed and instead empowers men, in many cases for the first time in their lives. On the larger social scale this threatens women as so they attack and shame us as their way of trying to put the information genie back in the bottle.

Women: The Most Responsible Teenager In The House
There thread has created a lot of butthurt since it was made, but the theories in which it espouses are sound, particularly in dealing with women's shit testing in long term relationships (LTR), the roles men and women are naturally predisposed to, and the establishment and enforcement of boundaries. This is the article that the thread is in response to.

Applying Red Pill Concepts To Your Daily Lives

48 Day of Power Supethread
48 Laws of Power from a Red Pill perspective.

All-in-One Legal Compilation Guide For Men
An unfortunately necessity in this day and age.

All-in-One Red Pill 101
This thread is a great primer of the Game aspect of TRP as described in the Introduction above. It also expands upon the core concepts found in the Glossary and Terms.

Feminist Shaming Tactics and What You Can't Say
It's important to familiarize yourself with the logical fallacies and bad faith arguments feminists use when discussing gender issues online and in the media, and how the media is controlled/constrained by those in power to service the feminine imperative. Note: The essay is linked in the What You Can't Say thread, and is not the thread itself.

A how-to guide for creating goals and staying on track.

LTR Checklist and Unicorn Hunting
A great list of red (and green) flags to help you ascertain if a woman is worthy of your commitment.

Life is short so make it a good one. And don't sweat the small stuff.

Man, Confessions of a reformed incel still just hits so close to home. It's probably one of the more powerful stories/resources on the list.

[–][deleted] 13 points14 points  (0 children) | Copy

I enjoyed reading Confessions of a reformed incel. It shows how brutal 80/20 rule is.

[–]Alth127 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

Michael's story for me. He could be me the way he was and the conclusions he made.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

When I read that story, it screamed at me. A portion of that story was my in my earlier years.

My anger phase lasted longer than most. But man, when I read that I can recall those feelings. Fuck I'm glad I found this place.

[–]Toushyton1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Really does bring back some memories.

[–]sm-urf35 points36 points  (3 children) | Copy

Whoever commented on this already, you're shadowbanned.

[–]Marcus11386 points7 points  (1 child) | Copy

Looks like two shadowbanned users now.

Thanks for the compilation bsutansalt - good stuff for new RPers, and also good for everyone to refamiliarize themselves with this.

[–]ChinmayT24 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Add /u/ before any user' s name,that way you stay safe.

I remember reading The Art of Whore: Why Betas Marry Leftovers shortly getting unplugged. It really left a huge impression on me, as I was indoctrinated all my life that it's perfectly okay for a woman to fuck anyone she wants in her 20s, and then marry at 30, because "hey, you are free to fuck anyone you want, too!"... except the fact that getting laid as a woman is as easy as a right swipe on Tinder, and getting laid as a guy is way more difficult than that. And of course, the main rule about N-count is "don't ask, don't tell"... right?

I have to admit that I was naturally repulsed by all this. I remember once in my early teens doing a calculation: "If a woman starts having sex at 18, and only has 1 different partner every year, it means that by 30 she had 12 different". Men are naturally repulsed by women with high N-count, and it's feminist indoctrination that brainwashes them into adopting the mindset "past doesn't matter". I'm sure that any guy would start having second thoughts if his fiancée told him "I fucked 50 different guys before you". And that's why women don't discuss this subject with their partners. They turn into "prudes" in their late 20s, stop dressing revealing, when they find a Beta they want to lock down, they don't fuck him right away, but after a few months, and then a guy starts thinking "this girl is a good wife material, I'm sure she fucked less than 5 guys". Back in my BP days, I used to envy a guy who is getting married, and now I just think "what a dumbass". And when I hear about a guy who's in a LDR with a 30+ post-wall slut, I genuinely wonder "how pathetic and desperate a guy must be in order to LDR a 30-something year old post-wall slut, who's by the way more than 1000 miles away from him?" The amount of guys like this is astonishing. And it's not just fat Betas, I've seen countless good looking guys in their 20s who commit to women in their 30s that live far away from them. When their oneitis moves from their town into town that is 1000 miles away, they deliberately remain committed and drive 1000 miles every weekend just to see their oneitis. These guys can find a pussy who's 10 minute drive away from them, but they deliberately refuse to. They spend their valuable money and time every week just to fuck their 30+ "SO", who they intent to marry, right after they ditch a high paying job back in their city. If there was no TRP, I would most likely become that guy.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (3 children) | Copy

The Art of Whore is goddam depressing. It really changes ones perspective of women, more so than the majority of material here on TRP.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

I went with a friend to the strip club and brought two strippers back because I had cocaine at my house. It took y'all this long to realize this crap?!

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

I realize it, I just weighed the benefits of drug use (short-term gratification and easier pussy) against the negatives and reality of dealing with the drama all drug-using women come with and decided my time, money and health were better spent elsewhere.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I just read it. DAMN.

It's worth reposting again.

[–]1mojo_juju1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

getting laid as a woman is as easy as a right swipe on Tinder, and getting laid as a guy WITHOUT GAME is way more difficult than that.


Guys with game & appropriate knowledge have no problems.

That said, on the average, you are correct.

[–]Wolffy935 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

Confessions of a reformed incel was one of the first post I read

It shattered the reality I was living in, introduced how reality Actual Is, and unveiled the curtain I had about how things are supposed to be from right in front of my eyes.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

Is this in the sidebar? I'm on mobile so I can't find out. Anyways, it's my favorite source of rp truth. Also, The Blueprint Decoded is amazing if you can get past Tyler's ghastly haircut.

[–]Endorsed ContributorWe_Are_Legion0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I know I'm just another stranger on the internet to anyone passing by...

but heed my words. If you are a newbie, and you have time to read just one thing from this subreddit. Then let "The Book of Pook" be it.

Just put it in your mobile. Read it when you have time.

It is the best, and simplest book on inner game you can get

[–]spartan13371 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I guess theres still the need for a condensed version of this.

[–]RoxoViejo0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Thanks for the primer! I've been in the game for quite some years now (in PUA terms), but when it came to relationships I always felt there was a gap between game theory and how to treat a woman in a relationship. Even PUAs tend to forget that in a relationship you need more game and become even stronger, just to not get f***** over by your woman. I've been reading up on RP material for some days now but this primer is gold!

[–]drty_pr0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Is Michaels story only a Darlock blog about marriage?

[–]Shifty9090 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Phase 2: on the value of women and phase 3: sexual strategy is amoral point to the same thread.

[–]Roci220 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Holy shit, why so many damn acronyms in the Game link? Fuck!

[–]dwd3xedwsz0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Feeling underwhelmed? Cheers, klutz!

The purpose of an anagram is to get the reader to slow down a bit. It also fixes the anagram in the readers head as well. That way whenever they hear the acronym, it brings up the subject matter again. Brains are neat.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
