I’ve heard a lot about Johnny Soporno the pick up guru lately so I spent some time doing some homework on him.
His schtick is that he works in the porn industry. That may impress some who think “porn is cool” but it really doesn’t impress me.
He really isn’t what I expected. Apparently he’s a minister of some sort and it shows. His delivery reminds me of a Priest giving a homily at mass. I’m not a fan of that style. It seems rather pompous and scripted to me.
Below is my favorite clip of him:
Getting over hating and blaming women for your failures is very important in becoming better with women. It was one of the hardest things for me to do. It is so important to understand the pick up interaction from their viewpoint. Women then become less of a mystery and their actions seem more logical.
I’ve heard Mystery talk about this same topic several years ago in David DeAngelo’s Double Your Dating Mastery Series. I enjoy the use of metaphors and similes by gurus such as Johnny but isn’t comparing sarging to fishing in any form a bit cliche?
I’m going to give you my own fishing/pickup metaphor to use:
“If you go fishing and catch a crotch bass and it smells rotten; don’t fucking eat it!”
Damn I’m good! Someone get me a pulpit.
