But, oh, how I long for the days of good ol’ fashioned negging now that PUAs have taken to straight up sexually harassing and/or physically touching their intended conquests and, on top of that, actually documenting their actions on YouTube. Remember the guy who was approaching women he didn’t know on the street and physically grabbing them, “sweeping them off their feet”?

At his Pick Up School For Men Who Canâ€™t Get Any in Japan, Fujita teaches the â€œscienceâ€ heâ€™s been researching for 10 years to hundreds of students a month. At $280 bucks a class, he describes his followers as socially awkward geeks who lack a certain je ne sais quoi that gets women in the sack. Fujita teaches these poor guys how to use â€œlaughter, compliments, and magic tricks,â€ to seduce women.
