The Ultimate Inventor

Thomas Alva Edison was successful in a way that is hard to imagine. In addition to his famous improvements to the commercial light bulb, Edison created or vastly improved hundreds of devices including the X-Ray, the telegraph machine, cement structures, iron-ore, batteries and the stock ticker.

During his lifetime Edison earned over 1,000 US patents and over 2,300 worldwide patents. More than a hundred years later, both the quality and quantity of Edison’s creations are still almost impossible to comprehend.

How To Be Like Edison

When reporters asked Edison how he was able to accomplish such incredible things, the great inventor gave all the credit to his mother. When he was a young boy, she taught him four simple principles:

  1. Never get discouraged if you fail. Learn from it. Keep trying.
  2. Learn with both your head and hands.
  3. Never stop learning. Read the entire panorama of literature.
  4. Not everything of value in life comes from books. Experience the world.

If any man wants to accomplish greatness in any area of his life, these are the principles he should follow. Health, finance, leadership, fitness, education, philosophy, religion – it doesn’t matter what category you’re working on, these four principles are equally fundamental to success.

How do they apply to meeting, dating and having sex with women? Let’s break them down one at a time.

1. Never Get Discouraged If You Fail. Learn From It. Keep Trying.

Failure is a prerequisite for success. Here are some great examples:

  • Due to his volatile and aggressive nature, in 1985 Steve Jobs was fired from Apple – the company he had created.
  • Steven Spielberg, director of Jurassic Park, Jaws and Indiana Jones, tried to get into film school and was rejected three different times.
  • Walt Disney was fired from his job in a newspaper because “he lacked imagination and had no good ideas.” In 1921 Walt Disney invested all his money in his first animation company which failed miserably. In 1927 MGM refused Walt’s idea of Mickey Mouse. They told him women would be terrified of a giant mouse on a screen. 
  • Stephen King’s first novel Carrie was rejected by 30 different publishers. His wife fished the manuscript out of a trashcan and convinced her husband to give it one more shot. 
  • Albert Einstein couldn’t speak clearly until age 9, was kicked out of school due to behavior problems and was refused entrance to the prestigious Zurich Polytechnic School. He tried to get a job as a psychics teacher but was turned down at every school he applied to and was forced to take a job as a patent clerk to avoid unemployment.
  • Abraham Lincoln was defeated in his run for state legislature (1832), failed in business (1833), had a nervous breakdown (1836), was defeated in his bid for congress (1843), defeated for US senator (1854), defeated as vice presidential candidate (1856) and defeated again as US senator (1858) before finally becoming president (1860)

Every successful ladies man will be rejected. The more successful he is, the more rejection he will need to face and overcome. Keep meeting new women. Keeping going out on dates. Keep sexually escalating. Don’t worry about the times you’re screw up, say the wrong thing, offend a woman or make one of a thousand possible mistakes.

Keep practicing. As long as you don’t stop trying, you’re guaranteed to be successful.

2. Learn With Both Your Head and Your Hands

How practical is this advice from Mr. Edison?!

Women don’t just want you to talk, they want you to touch them. This is one of those areas where theory is useless without hands-on education. There is a lot to know about touching the female body, from light kino all the way to g-spot orgasms.

For in-depth information on this subject – including step-by-step instructions on how to give your woman spectacular orgasms – make sure to get our new book Secrets of Sensual Massage!

So how do you learn how to touch a woman? The best way is to practice doing it. Pay attention to her body. Go slow. Listen. Watch her responses. Find what works and what doesn’t. Each woman is different but as you get more practice you’ll find there are many similarities that are almost universally enjoyed.

3. Never Stop Learning. Read the Entire Panorama of Literature.

There is all kinds of material about about how to be successful with women. We highly recommend purchasing and absorbing the following books and programs:

There are other books that can be helpful as well. One of the best ways to understand the female psyche is to read romance and erotica novels. With almost $1.5 billion in sales in 2017, the genre is guaranteed to give you a taste of what modern women are looking for in a man. Sure romance novels can be sappy, ridiculous and far-fetched but so are the stories in any porn movie and most novels are at least decently well-written. To get the most bang for your buck, we recommend reading the most popular books in the genre. Start with these:

It’s also a lot of fun to have at least a passing knowledge of romance novels so you can discuss them with women. If you’re looking for a spirited and truly enjoyable debate, tell your woman you’ve actually read her favorite romance novel and you hate all the characters. Be prepared to defend yourself from the guaranteed violence that will follow.

4. Not Everything of Value Comes From Books. Experience the World.

As much fun as it is to “visualize success” with women by watching porn, read books about dating theory and follow internet websites for pick-up skills and techniques, there’s nothing that substitutes for genuine field research. You need to get out and meet women.

  • Join eHarmony,, Zoosk and Plenty of Fish
  • Download Tinder, Bumble and other dating apps
  • Make it a habit to go to cool bars regularly – and especially on Friday and Saturday nights
  • Get out of your car and drink your coffee inside the Starbucks or local coffee shop
  • Start volunteering at your local charity or church fundraiser
  • Start or join a fun group on

There are intelligent, fun, beautiful, sexy women everywhere in the world except one place: Inside your house!

Give the women near you an opportunity to spend some time with a strong, confident, high-quality, Superior Fucking Man!

Women are constantly surrounded by boring, whiny, neutered men. Our new book Sexual Magnetism was written with one goal in mind: To make sure you’re a SUPERIOR MAN who is completely irresistible to women!

Do you struggle with any of these questions?

Are you in an LTR but she’s never DTF? If you’re not getting laid regularly, Chapter 13: Reigniting the Flame will teach you how to pass your woman’s “tests,” use conditional availability to generate sexual tension, and master the art of Dread Game. If your bedroom is colder than Antarctica, this chapter is guaranteed to heat things back up!

Are you working your ass off trying to make your woman happy but she still doesn’t want sex? You need to read Chapter 4: The Paradox of Purpose and the Pussy Pedestal to find out why a man can never EARN a woman’s sexual attraction – and the counterintuitive solution that will make you infinitely happier and turn her on like never before!

Do you know the fastest and best way to make sure SHE touches YOU? If you don’t already know this technique, Chapter 11: Teasing (It’s Getting Hot in Here) is going to blow your mind!

Do you want to start dating but you’re fat? Like really fat? Don’t worry, there are lots of big guys out there who are dating beautiful women! Chapter 6: Sexy and I Know It will show you why you don’t need to lose ANY weight to get laid – and what you DO need to work on instead.

Can a woman be sexually attracted to a man with so-so looks and almost no money? ABSOLUTELY!! Chapter 2: Why Are You So Attractive? will teach you exactly what women want and why their biology needs it – even if SHE can’t explain it!

How do you tell her about your other fuck-buddies? What’s the best way to break up with a girl? When should you lie to a woman? If you don’t know the answers then you definitely need to read Chapter 15: Ethical Magnetism. The more women you date, the more hearts you’re going to break. Make sure you do it the right way.



  • Your dating success-rate will SKYROCKET
  • Your wife/gf will start treating you like a WHOLE NEW MAN
