Strauss once climbed into bed with Jewel during an interview, and the myths surrounding his alleged kidnapping by Courtney Love (one version of the story claims she stabbed and drugged him) are dirty enough to be withdrawn from this article.
To top it off, Neil Strauss can list more than a few celebrity girlfriends to his credit, including the drummer from Courtney Love’s band The Chelsea.
The difference with Strauss is the assumption that he has lived the life he advertises.
In fact, Neil Strauss’ first method, known as Annihilation Method, was taught to five men in Strauss home over a long weekend in 2005.
This approach flies right in the face of the methods of men like Ross Jeffries or Doc Love, men who make their material highly available, even leaking large portions of it for free to men who know how to run a search engine.
Neil Strauss, while more mysterious than others in the seduction scene, is not much different from the famous names in seduction theory.
His methods are similar, even his high profile “retirement” (which is really just another avenue to sell you his books) lines right up with similar actions made by his teachers a few years ago.
This group of students went on to feature some stars of its own, including one student who released the controversial “How to Fuck Strippers” book in 2007.
This emphasis placed on releasing information to a small amount of consumers is a unique idea in the world in which Neil Strauss operates.
Not Strauss – after this extremely selective seminar, Strauss’ method was released to a larger audience.
The exact number is unknown, but Strauss offered to sell his method to the first “375” men to appear at his website to place an order.
In this book, Strauss relates advice and information on seduction in yet another unique way – by telling stories.
