The Matador Mayhem Technique: Matador Mayhem was the name given to the spectacle of Matador in a night club where he was spotted at times making out with several girls, one girl, her friends, and others - "mayhem". Matador's bootcamps have also been named 'Matador Mayhem' and his particular teaching style and techniques have also become known as the Matador Mayhem Technique as a result.
Matador's teaching style is different to Mystery's, although he follows and has been inspired by Mystery's advice and techniques.
Matador's specialties include physical escalation and making it a reward for the woman, and working on your avatar (the persona you use when going out to meet women) to have the confidence to approach and meet women.
Personal LifeMatador's real name is Stan Tayi and he is of Indian ethnicity. He graduated from Depaul University with a major in Computer Science. Upon graduation, he worked in technology and management consulting.
Since finishing the Pickup Artist show, Matador has been studying to complete a film school degree and using it to focus on the business, to produce more infield footage, and better quality footage. He wants to use this expertise in creating future pickup products. He is also working on a screenplay at the independent film level.
His spare time hobbies have included becoming a competitive martial artist and body builder.
Pickup Artist CareerJames Matador was introduced and began working with Mystery in 2005 when Mystery was a part of Mystery Method Corporation.
They conducted worldwide bootcamps together in collaboration with Lovedrop and other coaches.
While at Mystery Method Corporation, Matador and Mystery developed the pilot for VH-1's The Pick Up Artist. The reality TV show aired for two seasons, with Matador playing a key role as an instructor.
After VH-1's The Pick Up Artist, Matador launched his official website PUAartist.com in 2012 as a Pickup Artist in training resource. The site provides Pickup Artist training, information, and tips to “playing the game” via online, in-person, and phone-based training. Matador is an active member on the sites community forum and offers personal insight.
Matador started the website as a piece of internet real estate meant to capitalize on the Pickup Artist words and language that people are looking for. PUAartist.com primarily focuses on Matador, but he is still an owner at Venusianarts, where he conducts most of his business. The website is Matador’s vehicle to his ideology, up front and center. He has a vested interest in Venusianarts as well as his official website, and on improving both. He states that multiple sites are necessary in today’s world.
He currently lives in L.A. and is working on an interactive membership site that is a learning environment / portal with courses, supplementing videos, and infields videos to illustrate the theoretical points of his seminar videos; all in a effort to aid the pickup learning process.
Notable Media AppearancesIn addition to being featured on VH1’s The Pickup Artist, Matador has also appeared on the Jon Steward Show, and Conan O’Brien. He has also received coverage in The New York Times and CNN.
