The Bad: Right advice on what to do but not enough on how to actually do it. Unperfect English from the main speaker.
The Bottom Line:Badboy is a knowledgeable coach and the content is good, although for beginners ONLY. However, the product is too basic – ideas, explanations and missions are not explained at length; at this price, there are better products out there for beginners.
Covering the basics
This 3 CD set is the “basic” product offering from Badboy Lifestyle, intended to teach the ABC of dating and seduction to beginners.
It is very clear from the start that this will be for newbies only, as the first half of CD1 is all about basic mindset and concepts:
-Girls don’t like nice guys
-Girls like sex as much as guys do
-Girls are not above men
-Girls are emotional, men are logical
This part feels like a quick review of the “common knowledge” concepts in dating advice today. This could be useful, but unfortunately Badboy is far from exhaustive and he leaves a lot of important ideas uncovered (see for example David DeAngelo’s Double Your Dating ebook for a much more thoroughly expanded view of the basic psychological principles and mindset tips).
Another pet peeve of Badboy is “society brainwashing” and how “they” try to keep you controlled and frustrated through advertising, making you believe you need cars, luxury watches, etc, in order to get women.
While he does have a point, he takes it too far by saying things like “this is the brainwashing they must do to avoid economic collapse”, “this is how they keep you frustrated on purpose”, and other statements along the same line.
Of course, the rise of modern advertising happened at the same time as the widespread sexual liberation movement – in the last 30-40 years. While you see 100 times more naked women in ads than your grandfather did, you also have 100 times more opportunities to get laid in today’s society. We are now living in a hook up culture, the likes of which the world has never seen before. If “they” wanted to keep people frustrated, they would be doing a pretty poor job. So let’s take this stuff with a big grain of salt…
Not enough practical tips
Another section of CD1 explain the ideal traits of the desirable man: the importance of looking stylish, having a sense of humor, being unpredictable, etc etc. Unfortunately, you are just advised to get stylish and humorous – good luck getting there, because this product will not tell you how.
The end of CD1 and most of CD2 explain rapport and attraction. Attraction, Badboy points out, is a fleeting feeling, and must therefore be mixed with rapport to create a lasting connection. All the tips on creating rapport and attraction are good but (again) not developed nearly enough.
He suggests talking about emotions not facts, for example, but does not really explain or demonstrate how. He advises to connect through stories but has no tips on how to structure a story, how to use punchlines or hooks, how to create a fun vibe or demonstrate value.
In other words, he consistently tells you the right thing to do, but rarely explains how to actually do it. This is a surprising mistake for someone who has been teaching live bootcamps for as long as Badboy.
A whole CD of missions
CD 3 is all about missions, gradually introduced by level of difficulty. Some guys may feel like they need those, but in my opinion this CD was not really necessary, or should have just been an extra bonus. Do you really need to be told to take it gradually, and do simple conversations first, then harder next week, then harder still next month? Why not, but be aware that this is pretty much all the last CD has to offer.
Too rudimentary overall
Overall this product is too rudimentary – not enough is explained, and the few concepts covered are not developed sufficiently.
We understand that each company must explain seduction 101 to its new students, and they are bound to go over the most common concepts.
However, if you stick to the basics, at least cover them thoroughly, because that’s exactly what total beginners need to “get it”. You can’t tell a newbie “use stories to connect” and expect him to know how to do that.
I have no doubt Badboy is excellent with women – I can feel that. But as a teacher, unfortunately he did not succeed at structuring a great product here.

Have listend to all three cd's and will be attempting the missions in the near future. I must say, badboy is a badass mofo. Most of his views on society and the world in general I share with him. He puts things into perspective and it is mostly like getting a pep-talk from an older brother.
The information itself was A-class, I have already been using some of it.
The only thing I sadly regret is the fact that I am a poor student. I would love to go to a bootcamp... 1300$ is so much money for me... I cna live for 5 months with that money
But all in all, badboy, thanks for making those cd's, you made ma laugh alot on them, and the information is fantastic. I reccomend it to anyone
they are both very interisting,
you have to know your interests,
In the CD set its alot about society and society Programming.
But in the DVD you got nearly all of the stuf of the cd with a picture
and he explaines everything, with an eye for the detail. Its very magniicent, how he explaines everything. and i think, the DVD got more informations.
i would buy the dvd because i can also watch at his bodylanguage and things like this.
i would recommend you the DVD set,
because, he shows you everything he teaches, and you can learn his bodylanguage, because you see him and not only hear him.
i like it, because its cool stuff.
The CD's are GREAT, if you heard Basic Playboy or Attract & Date CD's you gonna love this one..
Badboy Style is Filled with more information than Basic Playboy and even the Attract & Date CD's witch contains 8 CD's but still less as good value of information. What I learned most of the CD's was The Matrix Theory and even for me who are aware of much of badboy & sharks teachings it was good becouse he took up some stuff he haven't mentioned before and another thing that was a huge topic was Rapport, you will know so much more about rapport after you listend to this CD.. I've been into the seduction community since 2001/2002 and there was some really nice things I didn't know that he mentioned on CD 2.
The DVDs are good...he instructs group of guys, films and critiques approaches undercover, and he actually demonstrates an approach himself (something every
so-called PUA should be doing in their videos but he's the 1st I've seen do this). Good price. And best of a little over 2 hours (I'm sick of long ass DVD sets btw).
I also like the cd set.
The conversation tips on it are great!
Even if I can't find a german word for 'anyway...' I could use.
And I was so overwhelmed by his Matrix Theory.
I my AFC days my theory about society was very similiar. What makes me a little proud but I didn't used it too sarge but more to complain about it.....
I go better with age!
A good, concise summary of the current state of seduction knowledge. However, not much new here for those already familar with MM.
If you want a nice 3 CD series to concisely summarize everything you already know (or should know!), so that you can replay them in your car or at the gym or whatever, this is the series to have. Similarly, if you are the type who is very anti-KJ: just needs to know the essentials without any fluff, and you are going to do the rest in the field, this is also the series for you.
If you are looking for new insights, you won't find many here, so look elsewhere.
"He Forgot to Talk About HOW to Build Attraction."
I love the layout of the cds. Badboy has a chick talking on some of the tracks which was a nice touch.
My only gripe:
AND A BIG GRIPE THAT IS! Badboy talks about how you have to make the girl attracted to you before you build rapport or otherwise you'll just end up another friend. He spends so much time talking about HOW to build rapport that he forgot to talk about HOW to build attraction.
I liked the CD's. I like the perspective Badboy has on women in general, that they are theinsecure and shy ones. I recommend the CD's to those who are new to the community, because he quickly covers a lot of shit, that most gurus take 3 day seminars to talk about. It hits the nail directly on the head and sticks with you. I listened only to the 2 CD's so I don't know if the mission CD is any good. I think I'm already know the game, not to do bootcamps anymore
Also I LOL'ed a lot when listening to them. Simply because badboy has an accent and speaks in engrish. I laughed everytime he said 'happy' and '[BS]'.
