Tom Leykis
Leykis has been mentioned a few times here and he's a really entertaining former radio show host that talks about dating, picking up girls, relationships, marriage, gender roles, and other relevant topics for men. I haven't seen a good place online to listen to long clips of some of his episodes until now:

He's a self-proclaimed asshole but he's right pretty much all the time.

RE: Tom Leykis
He came on the radio here a few years ago and every guy loved him. I thought he was a god, some of the shit I got from the show was classic, don't date single moms in case of accidents you already know what they're gonna do, keep the kid collect the check. Best place to pick up was pro choice rallies lol I remember a caller came up with a pick up where he'd hit the atm and comb thru old reciepts looking for ones with huge balances and then go picking up, chat up a girl and say im out im gonna leave you my number and you call me if you want, yanks the crumbled reciept out and puts his number on it and gives it to the girl. Shit was funny but he contradicted himself quite a bit, lots of girls just want guys with bank and the hotter the girl the more bank you needed, so bang em and move on, yet he was with a south american hottie I think who he claimed loved him didn't give 2 shits he had money or was famous like he was the exception despite being a flat out ugly dude. If he followed what he said i'd have respected it a little more even if I believe even an ugly dude can bang a hottie if he works her right, its just not what he was preaching. All aside he was entertaining as hell back then.

Not necessarily a contradiction. One of his preachings is that foreign women are superior and worth staying with compared to empty cocktail dress American girls.

RE: Tom Leykis
I don't recall him ever making the distinction I know he thought less of the American woman but he was pretty adament that it was all about get in get out, a woman wants what you want and as a guy knowing that gives you the power you don't get tied down. It's been a few years so maybe my memories failing me but guys used to call him out on the show about it and he just used to say she's different. I don't know if changed his stance down the road.

RE: Tom Leykis
Leykis was hilariously entertaining, I wish his show was still on the air but he's bound to a contract not to produce another talk show until around 2013 I think. He still updates his site leykis101.com in the meantime. Dude cracked me up every single show and he really gave great advice for guys, especially to younger ones on girls and life in general.

His game was actually pretty good, although slightly contradictory at times and not for everyone.

RE: Tom Leykis
leykis is classic. however keep in mind when listening to his advice about "dont get married" blabla, that he has been married four times.

best leykis quote, "single mother, find another"

RE: Tom Leykis
yeah, i know he contradicts himself by saying "don't get married" and was married four times. BUT, he does have the balls to admit his mistakes and doesn't try to hide them. If a recovering crack head told me not to try crack,"it'll fuck your life up", the fact that he did crack for years doesn't invalidate his advice. Hell, the fact that he has the personal experience makes him that more credible as an example of what not to do.

RE: Tom Leykis
A few years ago I used to listen to him religiously via his internet simulcast. He preached a lot of the principles regarding not dating single moms, not paying for dates, etc. He's been married at least a couple of times, so much of his advice comes from experience. He's funny and brutally honest.

"The best kind of pride is that which compels a man to do his best when no one is watching."

Leykis fan here, too. Looking forward to him being back on the air. I have tons of show-length MP3's that I've re-listened to many a time.

Very inspirational letter by listener on the Tom Leykis show begins at 4:20. His plan was to have the letter read on the air while he was in the car with his wife, who he divorced. It was about his sexual needs.

RE: Tom Leykis
He really came into his own when he started "Leykis 101" in 1997 or so on KLSX. It was must listen radio. But I still continually effed up with girls. I had a hard head I guess.

On Friday's on the Southern California freeways it was "Flash Friday" ... Girls would flash their titties if you had your headlights on. Most, however, were the ones you didn't want flashing anybody.

It read:

All of you manginas and white knights should listen to Tom Leykis and grow some balls.
