seduction

Guys often talk about something “working” or “not working” on women. His cocky remark about being too sexy for his sweater.

My thoughts on Simple Pickup, revisited

by GK on February 23, 2013 · 1 comment

Some readers have been suggesting I make a return visit to Simple Pickup, those rapscallions with the wacky Youtube videos and balls of steel. Being a man of the people, I had to comply. In a post I wrote over a year ago, I was impressed with the guys’ humor and ability to inspire, but […]
