**Reposted from the first Lair, original date: 1/26/04
This weekend, I had the pleasure of meeting up with some of the best pick-up artists in the world (all of which happen to live in LA, as luck would have it! =) On Sunday night, I was joined by Mystery and his current roommate Herbal from Project Hollywood at Roadking's appartment for a night of Salt-Lick Barbeque flown out specially from Austin Texas, home of the best BBQ I've ever had.
It had been a while since I'd hung out with Mystery, so I was excited to see him again. I knew he was going through a bit of a tough time with the NYT article, so when he showed up I was pleased that he was in good spirits. While Roadking was finishing up cooking the BBQ however, Mystery took the opportunity to scold me for channeling Ray Gordon with my ''conspiracy theory'' rants on the blog concerning the NYT article. I then threatened not to invite him to any more Barbeques if he kept acting like my mother, and that was the end of that. We got down to eating and catching up on what everyone had been up to since we last met.
One thing I have to say about Mystery, the guy is probably one of the most charismatic people I know. He just radiates a fun energy that can be infectious, and I always have a good time hanging out with the guy. It's obvious why girls go for him, he's just entertaining as fuck. Of course, the whole time I was with him, I couldn't help thinking about the time TheOne did his ''Mystery'' impression for me, so I had to keep from laughing at some points.
During the course of diner, Mystery was explaining some of the new theories he's developing with Roadking, Herbal, and I. It was a very cool experience, listening to what has to be some of the most cutting edge stuff when it comes to Pick-Up that's out there. The first thing he talked about was his theory behind attraction, and the different things that attract the opposite sexes in nature. For instance, he divides attraction into two categories -- Male to Female attraction, and Female to Male attraction.
Male to Female attraction (M->F) has to do mostly with visual cues that attract men to a women, things such as breast size, hip-to-waist ratio, hair color and sheen, ass, legs, and face. Basically, the fundamental things that initially attract a man to a woman.
The next part was a little more complicated and a category Mystery is still trying to dissect. He engaged Roadking, Herbal, and I in a discussion about mechanisms that attract Females to Males (F->M). His initial theory was that there were 7 ''switches'' that men can manipulate to create incredible attraction in women. We discussed the subject for a long time while eating, and had a great many good ideas and theories on the subject. Roadking probably took it the farthest of all of us, and I think Mystery got a lot of good insite to chew on. During this conversation, it also dawned on me the fundamental difference between a guru like Mystery and some of the other gurus out there. That's the fact that Mystery genuinely wants to hear other people's thoughts and will incorporate them into his method as opposed to acting like a scared little baby due to the ''competition.''
But the highlight of the evening was when Mystery whipped out his laptop and gave me a sneak peak at the book that he's writing, tentatively titled Mystery's Sex Magic. All I have to say is -WOW! I was incredibly impressed at what I saw.
My previous information where I reported that Mystery was finished or close to finished with the book was wrong. He is currenly only around 40 pages in. I was correct, however, in saying that he has simplified his method to a more manageable 3 Step method called M3, which consists of the steps: Attract, Build Comfort, and Seduce. The book then goes on to explain

each step in detail, and the pitfalls of doing them out of order, which I found to be incredibly interesting because it ran the gammut of how every guy presents themselves to women.
