Interesting description of the current sexual marketplace as an artificial market. All those guys you know who screw a lot of women are Omega’s exploiting a niche produced by feminism and urban anonymity. In a tribal society these sort of guys would be killed or expelled by an alliance of alphas and betas; if they could manage to get laid in the first place. However, the author also says that just as people ought to try and profit even from artificially created bubbles, they ought to exploit the current sexual market as well. Still, one lesson to take from this is that a true alpha male becomes so because of his ability to gain the respect and cooperation of other men.
From No Ma’am
The art of seduction, commonly known as “game,” has become a big focus in the manosphere over the past few years. I would like to make clear that I believe many of the elements of game are real and I agree that men should know about the attraction triggers of women. Game is essential to understanding the problems that we face as men in society. Without this knowledge, men will continue to be run around in circles, never getting anywhere – as has been evidenced over the past forty years. However, I learned about game in a bit different of a way than most. First, I learned via observation and through two friends of mine who both had extremely high partner counts – one I estimate has slept with 200 people and the other I suspect is in the 400 range. (Both are 40’ish now and the numbers add up over the decades). Things like social proofing and increasing one’s sexual market value by “climbing” from one chick to the next I had figured out on my own by the late 1990’s. But it wasn’t until I read the Book of Bonecrcker at somewhere around 2005 or 2006 that I really seen it laid out in print in a way that corresponded with my own life experiences and observations.
The Bonecrcker is different from much of the game-o-sphere in one key way: His definitions of Alpha, Beta & Omega are entirely different from the conventional definitions we are using today. I still believe that he is closer to the underlying “Truth” with his ordering of these definitions because he goes beyond merely “scoring” and a high partner count in his definitions for he includes social status and the ability to co-operate with other men – in order to create power – as part of his definition of “alpha.”
Here are the definitions I learned it under, which will make sense further along in my argument.
Alpha: The “top” male – both sexually and socially.
Beta: Most males in the population. The average guy.
Omega: The scum/deviant/criminal class
Zeta: Weak-willed males
