Super Seducer - How to Talk to Girls

Super Seducer - How to Talk to Girls is now available on Steam, offering a Windows and macOS FMV game where "world-renowned dating coach" Richard La Ruina will impart the techniques that helped transform him from "a self-confessed shy virgin" into "Europe’s top pick up artist in 2009." One might be tempted to say this is tone deaf in light of the current focus on the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, but it seems fair to think this was tone deaf before that, and the marketing suggests they don't mind if this ruffles a few feathers. A release trailer from a few weeks ago introduces La Ruina, who is incredibly handsome and described by Piers Morgan on TV as a "dick," which probably helps understand his success and why it can't be taught (our favorite aspect of the Steam listing is the user-defined tag calling it "psychological horror"). Here's part of the announcement that talks about this as a serious learning tool:

Discover what it takes to charm Super Seducer’s cast of a dozen elegant women, who bring their own personalities and dating experiences to each of the game’s ten unique settings, for added authenticity and hilarious improvisational moments that run the gamut from adorable, laugh-out funny to downright cringe-worthy. Branching dialogue-driven action options allow players to learn and experience proper seduction tactics with instant feedback. Players that make the wrong move in their flirtatious conquests face a variety of awkward and over-the-top negative outcomes inspired by unsuccessful “strategies” observed in the real world by Richard La Ruina and his team of female consultants.

“Super Seducer is not only an incredibly amusing game, it’s a fantastic learning tool based on realistic human sexual psychology and real-world dating rituals that reward players for making better choices when approaching women and punishes them for making a mistake or acting inappropriately,” said Richard La Ruina. “The team of women that consulted on the project, including the game’s strong female cast, believe that Super Seducer educates men on the do’s and don’ts of seduction, making men much less likely to offend women after they’ve played the game. My time-tested, research-backed techniques are sure to help anyone meet the partner of their dreams!”

i don't get how single #metoo activists will ever get a bf, unless they consider the only way for courtship and pickups is when the female initiates it.


Um... #MeToo was about rape and molestation and sexual harassment. It wasn't like radfem it was showing how widespread that kind of crap is.
You're responding to an angry incel, I doubt he'll understand what you mean.

There's a fool-proof way to tell if something a conservative/right-wing/Republican said is true or not. If they call it "fake news", you can be sure it's the solid truth.

Um no, you just have to learn how to pick up women without sexually harassing them, verbally or physically. Why is that such a hard concept for people to understand?


All you have to do is read his post history and you'll realize two things:

1) He won't learn, in large part because he has no interest.
2) Women are better off if he continues to overtly signal his character. We all are.

But there are tons of ways to talk to women, and to flirt, without crossing those lines. Being told there are lines you can cross isn't being told to sit with your hands under your butt waiting for some woman to talk to you.

If all you search is love, rescuing a puppy seems the better idea.

Just go ask some woman if you can "squeeze her tits." She'll fall all over you.

#trueadvice #alwaysworks

That is literally the thumbnail, haha.
But seriously, does that red guy think this pick-up artist stuff works? Or that women don't like men talking to them?

I never get this black-and-white response so many men seem to have to sexual harassment. Talking to women isn't sexual harassment. Persistently talking when you're told they're not interested is at least a form of harassment, and being very sexual when talking to women who don't want it is sexual harassment. Trying to flirt with women in the workplace while in a meeting discussing a powerpoint deck is also not a smart idea.

But there are tons of ways to talk to women, and to flirt, without crossing those lines. Being told there are lines you can cross isn't being told to sit with your hands under your butt waiting for some woman to talk to you.

There better be an option to just pay for them up front, that's the only way I've ever been able to pick up women.

Including my wife.

Yeah, there's probably a way to do something like this and make it fun and clever, but this doesn't look like it. On the other hand, at least the bozos that watch this will avoid using phrases like "I like big boobs" and "You better suck good dick." At least he's trying to get guys to avoid the most offensive pickup lines.
