In other words, Strauss has demonstrated that seduction and excitement are both walks he can walk.
If you know him as Style or Chris Prowles, then you may be familiar with his seduction and business style – the guy keeps to himself, releasing his thoughts on seduction to ultra small numbers of men, usually other members of the seduction community.
However, as noted by many in the community, often a small alteration of an elder’s method can lead to great success, and Strauss appears to have benefited from his Method’s similarity to those of his teachers.
This is a common theme in the seduction community – take what is good about what you already know and tweak it to increase your notoriety.
This is less method than psychology, and it is a fact that a person’s position in society can impact their attractiveness.
All the mystery of his Method is mirrored by the mysteries of his life. How did he get Jenna Jameson to open up to a stranger in such detail?
His “Annihilation Method” is notoriously secretive, with forums and discussion groups about AM (as it is known) closed for public perusal for the most part.
Neil Strauss encourages men to “get out and participate” as a first step – this does seem to be more sensible than the baptism by fire methods of his counterparts.
Strauss suggests that men will learn their weaknesses and be confident about what they already have right, and are then further prepared to work on “hypnosis” techniques similar to those suggested by Ross Jeffries, or the more mysterious “inner game”.
The Annihilation Method suggests hanging out with “natural” guys (guys who do not participate in the pickup artist community) who are “better” than you, for the obvious reasons: you will observe and learn their natural seduction techniques as well as benefit from proximity to more attractive or social guys.
