Quick Definition: A method of seduction developed by Mystery, and also the name of his former company.


Full Definition:

The Mystery Method is a structured approach to pickup that uses the M3 model to break down each step of an interaction with a woman, from meeting to having a sexual relationship with her. The model divides pickup into 3 sub segments for attraction, 3 for comfort, and 3 for seduction, with details on what to do at each specific stage. It is a roadmap that GPUAs can use to help develop their game.

The M3 Model’s first introduction was in Mystery’s Venusian Arts Handbook. The M3 Model can be applied to other pickup methods as well and has been a cornerstone in defining the structure of the seduction community.

The Mystery Method is also the name of the pickup company that Mystery started with his partner Savoy in 2004. Mystery split from the company in 2008, going on to found a new company by the name of Venusian Arts, and Savoy renamed the Mystery Method corporation to Love Systems.

    I just heard about this whole PUA process. I have not had a hard time getting with the ladies because I’m not shy to say or do anything. I like the methods that I listened to by neil strauss. i was wondering if workshops like the ones he discusses are still available. I am eager o learn as much as I can and add more dynamics to my game. Or if you have suggestions as to what books to buy I would appreciate that too. Thanks.

  • @David, Neil Strauss now has his own pickup company called the “Stylelife Academy” that offers workshops and products. Alternatively, you can try checking out Mystery’s company called “Venusian Arts”. See our Schools Page for more info.

  • @ David, when I started out, The original Mystery Method helped me a lot. DYD was ok, but it lacked the technicals and details I needed. I thought Gambler’s book ‘the natural art of seduction’ was quite good, even 2 years into game. You will notice that we have 5 product reviews to the right –> this is because we didn’t have time to do additional reviews and we picked the ones that we thought was most helpful to our game.
