Check Out “The Red Pill Room”

If you’re a long time reader, you know that I rarely link out to a new blog. So when I say go check a new blog out, you really should go check it out.
Ian Ironwood is a regular commenter here, and he’s done some good posting at The Red Pill Room, but today’s was exceptional. Go read Alpha Move Give Her Chocolate The Right Way
…I won’t steal his thunder, but it’s exactly what I’m talking about in Chapter 11 of the Primer.

    Thanks for the Link Love, Athol! And that means a tremendous amount coming from you. My goal at TRPR is to explore the collective masculine wisdom that leads to a fulfilling life, particularly within a marriage. That includes a lot of tips and commentary about various ways to do Alpha and Beta in a subtle and powerful way. You've been a constant inspiration, and I hope between you and the rest of the Manosphere we can really see a resurgence of positive, lusty, proactive, unapologetic masculinity that can serve as an example in the future.

    And, of course, help everyone get laid. Can't get too much of that.

    I've always enjoyed Ian's straightforward positive comments as well. Thanks for the insight, Ian… You and Athol complement each other well.

    My wife is maintaining a pretty big weight loss, so there's no way I could give her chocolate. That would just make me a dickhead.

    But I love the idea of doing something tongue in cheek like this. I'm just finding it hard to come up with something inexpensive and immediate, that doesn't involve food.

    Actually, consider very small amounts of dark chocolate (70% cacao or more). It's rich in antioxidants, and without the sugar and fat of milk chocolate candy, it's actually not that high in points. Better, a tiny bit can go a very long way. It satisfies the craving for the taste of richness without incurring a large penalty. Even a tiny square no more than a few grams can provide a chocolate experience, and in the throes of a diet the effect can be significantly magnified.

    It's also loaded with yummy chemicals that just make you feel better. So a treat of a taste of dark chocolate as a reward for positive behavior could actually be magnified with dark chocolate. If you want to accentuate the experience, pair it with a hint of white pepper, red chili pepper, or wasabi.

    Chocolate is one of those sophisticated cultural things — "finer things in life" — that you can affordably become knowledgeable about as a DHV. I've always considered a retirement career as a chocolatier, and I've advised one of my culinary-oriented Scouts who is considering a career in high end food service to think about being a chocolatier as a profession.

    Think about it: young man with Game and full access to an arsenal of chocolate.

    He'd be unstoppable.

    Ian, your post on initiating sex is brilliant… I've always known if I wanted more, I would need to initiate more. Most manosphere bloggers just say "initiating is an alpha trait, so do it" – which is fine advice – but none have gone into

    a) *why* men are so hesitant to initiate, and
    b) why waiting for the wife to initiate is a losing strategy

    …so seeing someone address both of those points in depth was a breath of fresh air. Keep it up!

    Athol, I really enjoy your blog and have read it for several months now. Sometimes I feel like I know you better than I know my neighbors. So, it is with some hesitation that I tell you this. Dude, you've got to get a new profile picture. I know that you're far too busy working, blogging, raising your girls, and giving Jennifer the business to be a scary creep. But, dang, you look like a serial killer in that mugshot. Wow!
