  • Just finished the book "the truth" by Neil strauss aka style (Book Review)

    What happened to me reading bd book, is the same that happened to me reading this book, first time could not get into it, (due to being in a different life stage)....


    Being in a different life stage(post break up) decided to re read bd book and it was good, same with "The Truth" could not get into it first time, second time (new main), good...


    Anyways back to "the Truth" the book talks about how neil a former player gets into a relationship (mono) ends up getting the "player cravings for variety" and wants to open up the relationship with his girl, she refuses... He starts cheating and craving freedom (we all been there). Now so far common and so good.

    Now this is were the books start going all over the place, he goes to a sex addict center for treatment, and gets diagnose with a bunch of shit, basically trauma that comes from childhood (mom and dad), I will not spoiled but basically he was smother by the mom, and made to follow a bunch of rules...

    After the sex retreat he basically breaks up with his girl, goes crazy exploring all types of relationships... Now here is were I start getting lost, instead of trying what we all do with is mltrs with fbs.

    What he does is that he starts going to a bunch of swing clubs and shit.... And has horrible type swingclub experiences ( I have been in the lifestyle and he describes a bunch of adventures unlikely to happen at first)... Full of drama and complications...


    Then he move 3 freaking girls into an apt. to experience poliamory or whatever is called... And predictably he gets a bunch of drama, the girls don't get along, he gets all stress out, and a bunch of problems...

    Finally he gets a main oltr that brings him girls for him to fuck, they go to swingclubs etc... But he goes all crazy when she is trying to hook up with dudes...

    They end up breaking up

    he deal with his childhood issues, changes his number, gets rid of ALL SOCIAL MEDIA, porn and temptations.


    Tries to get back with his gf but she is taken by a hot dude

    Goes back with the girl he had, goes mono, have a kid and live happily ever after...


    After finishing the book, I am more confused than ever.... Just wondered if is a sells job to sell monogamy, just lol.... I wonder if all pua books including mine are backwards rationalizations...


    Still recommend the book, is extremely long though, twice the size of the game, so get it on audiobook...

    He is trying to sell books and therefore creates an over-dramatic politically incorrect story about poly that ends with something morally acceptable (mono+kid+live happily ever after). And of course he was just a victim of traumas, not a horndog.

      Comment from Teevster: How believable is this? You have the frame control to move in with 3 women in a poly setup, but you freak out from bringing your main to a swingclub?

        no that did not happened, what happened was that he freaked out when his main went to Mexico with 2 dudes (a sex resort) without him.

            There's no end game. Thinking that way is erroneous to begin with.

            Life is about maximizing the pleasure for yourself during the journey through the inevitable ups and downs. Ethical hedonism is where its at. If your life's pleasure exceeds your life's pain for most of the journey, you've had a solid ride. That's about all you can ask for.

            If Neil is enjoying himself and making the most of the ride (and making $$ off telling the story, his passion), he's winning.

              Basically after reading the game or the truth...


              specially the truth the dude basically got married to have a kid, and totally made huge backward racionalizations and none sense.... I detected that towards the end of the book, same as the game "i don't need pua or whatever" she is atttracted to me, 6 months after the book the girl dump him...

                The guy is trying out game and relationship setups and relaying the story in Hollywood storyline fashion for the masses, so that he makes money as a noteworthy figure in the entertainment industry. He's the smartest and most successful creative businessman in the PU scene.

                I dunno. . He doesn't bother me. He's not trying to sell his shit to a gang of followers to ego-validate his self-defensive prostelyzations (most of commercial PU/lifestyle scene, the "we barely make any money screaming our perspective nonstop" side of things). Rather, he's selling his exaggerated "based on real life" story to the masses as entertainment. A story that that shows growth and change over time(rather than vehemently doubling down on one ideological belief.). The fact that he always chooses to end his story at a "happily ever after" point is perfect, straight $$$$$.

                That's something I respect

                    He's a fool for blaming his parents for his sex addiction. Everyone is addicted to sex, it's an innate primitive addiction that requires years of meditation to remove.

                    Best way to remove sex addiction is to look at dead corpses aka called Asubha meditation (careful googlng asubha if you have a weak stomach) or doing the 32 parts of the body meditation (mucus, phelgm, bile, pus, blood, semen, feces, urine, etc.) and every time you look at porn you look at the disgusting aspects of it. That will slowly remove your underlying desire for it. Also pay attention to your senses and imagine the fake chemical smell on her skin, stinky smell or period smell from her vagina, etc.. basically it involves changing you perception from positive to negative.

                    Be careful with dead bodies/corpse meditation (asubha), it's caused some monks to commit suicide because they did it so much they started hating their own bodes.
