I had never done day game before, with the exception of a few approaches in college. Yet, my interest in the subject had been rekindled after being in Russia for just a short period of time. The sheer amount of beautiful, feminine women walking around compelled me to want to learn day game.
Ogling these beauties is one thing, but being able to stop them and get their number is a whole different animal. It would be great to learn how.
Naturally, I want to learn from the best. Krauser was a name I’d always been familiar with, but had never been keen enough to really read his work. So when visiting his website I noticed his most recent post was about his soon-to-be released book Adventure Sex: How To Pick Up The Girls Of The Former Soviet Union. It piqued my interest to say the least.
The book is to be the 4th volume of his memoirs, the 2nd he’s written—Balls Deep being the first installation in his series of books chronicling his adventures in day game, traveling across Europe and banging beautiful women. So I resolved to read Balls Deep first and then continue to his next memoir soon delving into his day game manuals.
From Divorced AFC to Dating a Russian Model
I easily peeled through this book. It’s 400+ pages, but you will by no means slog through it.
The story begins with Krauser’s divorce. After spending a huge part of his life dating and married to a single women, seduction was not on his mind. But as his marriage starts to fade, the choice is clear: Jerk off and play videogames or seek to become a master of pickup.
Needless to say he made the right choice.
The chapters consist of his various escapades, detailing his seductions and bangs. They usually hone in on a particular girl, a trip, or mixing various events together.
The stories are entertaining, but also incredibly helpful. This book is not designed as a manual on day game, but there is a ton of knowledge being dropped throughout, making it an informational resource in it’s own right.
As the story progresses you’ll see me develop from a sexless hopeless fool who couldn’t even get a kiss for six months into a man who was having sex with nineteen-year-old students in pub restrooms in the middle of the day an hour after meeting them.
Though Krauser was an expert in day game back in 2009-2011, his skills have evolved even more since then. So even though he does quite well with women in Balls Deep (in my opinion), he at one point labels himself a ‘lower-intermediate’ with day-game, even after getting a SDL. The 2014 Krauser who wrote Balls Deep can reflect back on his shortcomings years ago, to give the reader better insight of what went wrong in these interactions. These include not only subtle nuances with body language, sexual tension etc. but also meta concepts about inner game and evolving as a player.
This commentary is important, and I would bet many other authors would fail to include it. Had the book been just ‘Lay Reports’ you would have gotten the impression Krauser was a demigod, with the power to seduce any women. His introspection and brutal honesty are crucial for the budding seducer.
Learning to Love Daygame
Daygame is tough—at least at first. For the few men that have the balls to approach, doing so in a night club is a more hospitable and acceptable environment. Darkness penetrated by strobe lights, loud music, and alcohol are perfect for fomenting a sexual environment and are a boon for people looking to get laid.
During the day there is none of this. You can’t hide behind any of these things. You can’t throw back a shot of booze, hoping to get an extra ounce of liquid courage.
It also reveals who you really are as a person:
At heart, day game is a test of how socially normal you are. No matter how slick your lines they must be overlaid onto a sound foundation of social skills. Girls sniff out wreidos in a heartbeat, which has proved the undoing of many a hapless new daygamer. At this point, I was that hapless daygamer.
The Statistics Don’t Lie!
One of the most sobering aspects of daygame is that it takes a lot of work to get one notch. In a nightclub, you can bang out sets continuously, with a ton of pretty and willing girls within the immediate vicinity.
In day game you don’t have that luxury. You have to, as Krauser did, trudge the streets looking for attractive women. You then have to open them, hook them, and move the interaction forward, eventually hoping to seal the deal.
The numbers are quite disappointing.
It was mind-blowing to see that Krauser did 1000+ approaches getting only 2 lays early on in his journey. That is a 0.2% approach to bang ratio!
He also highlights his yearly success rates, with 2015 having a about a 3% success rate. And remember, this is from a guy who is one of the best in the game.
However, when you put things into perspective it’s not too terrible. At a 3% success rate, simply doing 1 approach a day will yield you about one new girl every month. This is much more than the average guy will ever have. And if you’re willing to do more approaches on say weekends your results will be even higher. There are of course ‘near-misses’ to, which include hook-ups that don’t end with sex—a consolation prize many would be pleased with,
As Krauser posits at one point in the book, if you were promised by a genie to work your ass of approaching girl after girl for a year, would you be happy with multiple fuckbuddies that would fulfill all of your sexual desires at the end of the journey? Most guys would gladly agree.
A Peak Into the ‘Secret Society’
The secret society is a concept popularized by ‘Tyler Durden’ of RSD. Essentially, it’s the concept that certain men are treated totally different by women and are able to meet and bang women in ways that most other men would find inconceivable.
I didn’t get to fuck her, but that was okay, it had been all good for my inner game. I was getting a window into the Secret Society—that hidden world of fast adventure sex that most men never see and most women don’t even believe in until it creeps up on them and they get swept along on the waves.
Krauser’s escapades are a window it to this world. His fast lays with kinky sex are something women reserve only for a certain subset of men.
Perhaps the most memorable example is when he meets a Muslim virgin who flies to Libya to meet him:
Mafalda refused to kiss me in public. It was their last day in London. They were leaving for Libya that afternoon. As Fernando and I watched the cab drive away I asked him, “So, did you fuck her?”
He nodded and said, “Yeah, in the ass.”
“Me too,” I said.
A Memoir That Will Get You Laid
Normally I scoff at the concept of getting ‘motivated’ or ‘hyped up’ in the variety you would see at a Tony Robbin’s seminar. Yet, the other day after finishing a couple chapters of Balls Deep I was dying to approach.
I went to the park next to my apartment in St. Petersburg and waited for a cute girl to come by. Sure enough, I was treated to a pretty brunette sitting a few benches away. I saw a tattoo on her and knew that would be my opener. After reading for a few more minutes I got up, walked over and pulled the interaction off seamlessly.
Up close, I realized she was much hotter than I previously thought. In fact, she was the hottest girl I think I’ve ever approached in my life.
We conversed, in Russian, for 10-15 minutes or so and she was super pleasant. Far from the Russian ‘Ice Queen’ stereotype. I got her number too. Had it not been for reading Balls Deep I wouldn’t have done that approach, and other ones in more recent days. Krauser’s development over time is really inspiring and one that drives a man to take action.
As just a memoir, I learned a ton about game and day game, so I can only imagine the quality that he will lay out in his textbooks.
This is a great read for anyone looking to meet more women during the day, or to just read an entertaining memoir about pickup, travel and shenanigans.
