minimalist pickup approach to physical game
The minimalist approach to pickup is making its rounds in the community. But many don’t understand certain aspects of it that make it anything but an easy fix.

Hello again, guys.

This post aims to debunk the trend of minimalistic or simplified approaches to getting women, which have become more popularized recently. These include “meet-vibe-escalate-close” approaches. I will also explain exactly why it is that they don’t work. There are no quick fixes – sorry!

The last few years, more minimalistic forms of night game have become more popular, not only among seduction newbies and the “less dedicated” cold approachers but also in general across the mainstream seduction community.

They rely primarily on vibe, state, and physical escalation. This style is popular because it does work sometimes, but not often enough, in my opinion. And if done badly, it can lead to total disaster. The blueprint is supposedly simple, consisting of:

If you fail, then go home and jack off or move on to next girl (unless the club is closing soon).

Not a perfect game plan, but it does work occasionally, and the blueprint is a simple one. It seems many men favor this minimal approach when it comes to meeting women.

Alek Rolstad launched his pickup career at age 14, an early starter and seduction savant. His unique style of game focuses on “sex talk”: a way to make sex the primary topic of conversation. Sex talk lets the user excite girls rapidly, and filter for girls open to fast, raunchy, kinky one-night stands and sex. You can learn from Alek, the master and originator of sex talk himself, by booking a 1-hour phone consultation with him.

I feel like you are talking about Aaron Sleazy a lot in this article. Even the title seems to be a reference to "Debunking the Seduction Community"?

How experienced do you think a guy should be before he tries this kind of game? I've read Aaron's books, Minimal Game and Club Game and I don't think he encourages beginners to do risky things. They have helped me and I would consider myself a beginner still. I just start by holding the girls or hand or putting my hand on her back and see how she responds. This is the only type of game I've really been able to get on with, as I'm terrible at social game and feel a bit awkward trying to pull of fancy verbal stuff.

Hey there. 


Interesting comment. 

I have met Aaron Sleazy multiple times, first time back in 2008! He is a great guy. sadly i have lost a bit contact with him since he kind of stepped away from the pick up community. 

I have seen him countless times in field, and he is really damn good. However I do not consider Sleazy a minimal gamer, despite naming his book (which I did not read). Truth is, the list of subjects i suggested in this post are in fact very close to what sleazy does. He spends lots of time meditating in field, controlling his state. his awareness of the venue was always on point and is state control was next level. His target selection was even better and so was his skills in spotting approach invitation.

His approach was tight and his escalation was tight, calibrated and advanced with a huge arsenal of physical techniques. His understanding of club dynamics, logistics and women would also help him a lot.


Not minimal game in my book.


However later on Sleazy moved away from his all game plan which obviously worked so well for him. I do not know why he did that. My sleazy is the one from 2008-9 when he was being known as the Sleazy Rockstar.


Sleazy was not the one I had in mind when writing this post.
