Seduction community

The seduction community is a loose-knit subculture of men who strive for better sexual and romantic success with women through self-improvement and a greater understanding of social psychology.

Seduction literature

Seduction literature includes many books by individuals in the seduction community. They often provide anecdotes of successful conquests and are presented as self help books for men seeking to climb out of the average frustrated chump abyss.

The Mystery Method is a method of seduction first popularized by Erik Von Markovik a.k.a "Mystery" and a team of approximately 15 professional Mystery Method instructors. Mystery Method Corporation, now known as Love Systems, also published the book The Mystery Method: How To Get Beautiful Women Into Bed in 2006.
