Some of his other products include: “The Mystery’s Method: Mystery’s Video Archive (5 Volumes), “Venusian Arts Bootcamp”, “Annihilation Method”, “Magnum Opus: The Mind of Mystery”, Beyond The Game”, “Revelation”, “Complete Sexual Mastery”, Exotic Dancers and Hired Guns”, The Pickup Artist: The New and Improved Art of Seduction” and many more.By close observation of people and their social interactions or their behavior during the beginning of their relationships, combined with some of the theories from the evolutionary psychology, he succeeded in finding applicable theories of his own and translating those theories into methods and techniques, adding different analytic aspects in the field of seduction.But driven by the desire to give and receive love, he spent over ten years experimenting with different people and situations in the nightclubs (sometimes, as he would say, seven nights a week).
He is directly responsible for coining some unique terms and concepts (taken from the evolutionary psychology) vastly used among the seduction community (also often used by his former student, Neil Strauss).
Some of those concepts include: peacocking (where a conversation opener is a piece of eccentric wardrobe or an interesting detail), neg (throwing a compliment intended for ignoring the ‘target’ and leaving space for proving herself worthy enough, or qualify, another of his theories), the 3-second rule (where you must approach a girl in only 3 seconds after seeing her or the anxiety will build-up) and set (actual group of few – male and female – people which must be befriended by you in order to woo your selected target).
Aside from the coined terms and concepts, Mystery is practicing professional advice’s composed of step-by-step programs on maintaining of one’s emotional balance adjusted for every individual, and working on the skills and mind unity.
In 1997 Mystery replies to someone else’s post on a seduction community Internet forum, so this is the first time he actually appears on the PUA scene.
As he would admit, he was a “late bloomer” himself, spending his time playing Dungeons and Dragons until his twenties, having absolutely no success with women.
