Thought Leader Interview Series: Asian Rake

Peeps, I hope everyone had a lovely holiday weekend. I sure did. It’s a new week, so that means the Thought Leader Interview Series continues. Today we’re featuring one of the smartest guys in pickup, The Asian Rake, who bequeathed us one of the most thoughtful and provocative interviews to date. Be sure to check out his excellent blog, Dr. Asian Rake, and also his website, The Power of Being Asian. Holy cow, this stuff is awesome. Feel free to debate his points in the comments.

Money quote:

“As women continue to gain ground in the professional workforce, especially in socially conservative countries, the male provider mindset will drop away, not entirely, but considerably. In some countries, this might take 40 or 50 years instead of 10 or 20. But it’s bound to happen. When it does, society will have to come to grips with the fact that women want sexual satisfaction as much as men do and that many formal courtship patterns are unnecessary and even irrational.”

7 Thought Leaders in the Dating & Pickup Industry

If you’re into pickup like me, you’ll see lists of the top 10 pickup artists of the year floating around the various blogs. You can see two such lists here and here. These are usually pretty popular, and often times controversial.

This post isn’t one of those lists. I’m not interested in who is a pickup machine and who can get the most lays. I am interested in attraction and social artistry, though, and I try to keep up with the latest ideas coming out of the pickup/dating/relationships niche. There needs to be more information (and innovation) about how to socialize and be attractive, because most people are terrible at both of those things. It’s also been my experience that conventional wisdom, ie the stuff you read on mainstream sites, is way off the mark from what’s actually happening during real life interactions.

What I want to know is, who is coming up with fresh ideas about dating and relationships? Who’s changing the way we think about attraction? Who are the thought leaders and innovators out there in this crazy little niche?

The Weekly: We’re On IDW Radio Show

Well, after a couple of weekends worth of insane-o vacations (see here and here) and a lot of non-blogging-related work, I’m ready to get back to business as usual. We missed The Weekly last week, so we’ll double up on this go around.

(Sarah Palin: Despite her politics, I’d do her.)

First off, a coolass announcement: I’m a guest on the IDW Talk Radio Show…if you don’t know IDW or Eathan, we’re talking about idatewhite.com, a great blog about single parenting and interracial dating. The show happens this Wednesday between 9:00 – 11:00 pm EST. See details here.
