Captain Obvious: Buyer Beware Applies to the Red-Pill Manosphere Too

Interesting exchange I just stumbled across on the Asian masculinity reddit:

3WH (presumably Third World Hero): "Your view on expat-pua? Specifically Asian-American men bringing PUA to Asia and becoming unstoppable poon machines?"

theasianplayboy (JT Tran): "It's too easy. When I went to Viet Nam, I was mobbed by tons of Vietnamese girls who could tell I wasn't a local Viet.

It's fun certainly, if you want to rack up those numbers. I've known a lot of PUAs who travel to the Philipines and similar to inflate their numbers.

However, while enjoyable, it isn't really conducive to long term growth and development as a person. None of those Asian village girls type have the kind of well-traveled, cultured, educated, and powerful personality than I'm looking for in a partner.

But sure, if you want to have fun, it's like shooting fish in a barrel."


No disrespect to JT Tran, but one has to remember what his incentive is - and that's to get you buying his products, and going on his expensive boot camps. Of course I'm not targeting JT Tran - this applies to anyone trying to sell you anything, red-pill manosphere or not. To think otherwise would be like expecting a car dealer in New York City to say you don't need a car to live in New York City.

Now I will say there's something to be said about improving yourself before going overseas, and not being a fat, poorly-dressed slob with bad social skills. However, I don't think one should spend too much time or money on it - losing yourself in Game or trying to buy your way with boot camps. Life is too short for that.
