Today's interview is awesome. We're going to look at the past 25 years since one man decided to teach men how to seduce women, and everything that happened because of that, and how it evolved. It's truly been a rollercoaster for many of us who got involved in the movement of seduction, pickup artistry, and everything else that has come with it, and it really hasn't stop running.

I personally believe the seduction movement has helped to spread self-help to a much broader male audience, and has really inspired many guys to just improve themselves and their lives; not just in dating, sex, and relationships, but everywhere. I've seen that many times.

So today we're going to look at the evolution of speed seduction, and the man behind it - Ross Jeffries. This is an amazingly candid interview. I really couldn't have asked Ross to be more straightforward and honest with us about his 25 years of experience, and his journey of teaching men how to get better with women.

He reveals the good. He reveals the bad. He reveals the wrong turns, the successes, and deep insights into how men improve their dating, sex, and relationship lives; taken from 25 years of experience of working with men to solve these problems. As you'll see, it's a journey that has changed and has involved over time. So it's really interesting to see that from someone who created it and has been there the longest.

If you don't know Ross Jeffries, he started teaching seduction before the 1990's. His first product that came out was "How To Get The Women You Desire Into Bed" (correction: first book release in 1988 - The amazing "Seduction Secrets" of a skinny, ugly, six-foot geek from Culver City, California that could get you all the girls you want...no matter what your looks or age). Then in 1998, that spread to the internet with alt.seduction.fast, and that was something I was actually a part of in that movement from around 2000. I am very grateful for that because the first things that I ever learned were on alt.seduction.fast. So if it wasn't there, I wouldn't have had anything to study and learn from, and get kick-started in all of this.

Ross Jeffries was actually being played by Tom Cruise in the film Magnolia, in the alias Frank T.J. Mackey who is basically taking on a similar role of a seduction guru. Ross over the years has been featured in every media you could think possible - BBC, CNN, Fox, ITV, NBC, Playboy, Rolling Stone, Dr. Phil Show, and on and on.

In this interview, you really get to see the personality of Ross and a lot about his own personal journey. I would love to hear about what you learned from this episode, what are your takeaways from this 25-year journey and what it means for you.
