Its true Russian women pay a lot of attention to being slim, attractive and taking care of their men.

This is because Russia is far from a wealthy welfare state.

If you want to get yourself an attractive woman who will make an effort, look at countries where the state (government) doesn't strip assets of males and give them to women for nothing, but countries where the women need to earn the resources from men via the age old transaction.

RE: The SMV thread - sexual market value
You could also say that women in countries like Russia and FSU, have less equality in the workplace than women in the west. Therefore, to have the possibility of a comfortable life financially, are more invested in their looks and their desirability around men. This would also highlight the disparity in looks between couples. The man with the women 3 points higher is obviously bringing other things to the table, in terms of resources, status etc.

That's some real truth by Stefan Molyneux.

We could have just left that thread up to those two videos.

Being honest, I feel a bit embarrassed when I read this question. Raising your attractiveness (SMV) is really fucking slow-moving work, with the exception of "choosing a different market".

I guess, since I was young and clueless, I:
1) Left Australia, didn't move to Toronto.
2) Wore presentable clothes (still have much further to go on this, but waiting on my bodybuilding work before I buy a bunch of new clothes).
3) Lived a more interesting life (mainly through travel, but also choosing new accessible hobbies like motorbikes etc).
4) Started going out alone. This doesn't just help with meeting girls, but also boosts your attractiveness because you look equally comfortable alone, and you learn to make new 'instafriends' easily.

Everything else I've done is just precursor work. Stuff done in hope my attractiveness is boosted in the future.
1) Bodybuilding regime. Currently at my greatest weight ever, but still in skinny territory.
2) Business research. A year ago I barely knew what 'business' was, now I'm working towards business attempts.
3) Learning language. Brutally hard, but I figure once I learn the first one, that'll help me with those women plus further language learning will be easier.

Unfortunately my attractiveness has also gone down a bit due to one area.
1) Jadedness. Too often, I look low-energy or 'down', because I don't have the initial excitement I had when I left Australia. Whereas before, I was eagerly going out on dates, was cheerful and excited to be meeting the girls, now I just don't care that much. I also go into dates or approaches with a tinge of apathy, a calcification that comes from the unpleasant tension of "is this going to blow up?", "is this going to be dropped a few feet from the goal line because of some bullshit?" Looking energized is an important part of being attractive -- girls can smell jadedness and it's a turn off. I'm hoping my excitement will return when I push further afield in the future.

I got comfortable traveling, eating out, and wandering around solo long before I got comfortable in my SMV / with Game as a conscious concept. It's quite an underrated skill to make your own entertainment wherever you go, whether alone or among strangers.

RE: The SMV thread - sexual market value
Start learning Russian, Spanish, and French (in addition to already working on Chinese pre-game).
Replaced half my wardrobe with upgrades, including custom suits
Just signed a lease on a lockdown pad in downtown Austin
Got a solid job with good pay to begin saving and investing aggressively towards a location independent lifestyle

Plan to learn kung-fu
Get a pilot's license
Get firearms trained
Plan to travel extensively with newfound airline points
Need to get back on the fitness regime and kill off these last pounds I've carried since childhood

Most importantly, I run accent game. In the Anglosphere, I know that as an Asian man, I have a significant penalty on SMV, if we're ranking on points I'd say -1.5 to -2, full stop. Testament to this, but also because I am still just a young beginner (21, just starting second year in RP/game), thus far in my journey, I have still not converted a "neutral" mark. That is to say, a random girl walking down the street. Everyone thus far, regardless of race (or Asian), has had some sort of prior proclivity towards Asian culture like anime, K/Jpop, travel there, learning the language, etc.

I've always been really good at accents and impressions for some reason, and I see no reason not to use these skills/talents to the fullest extent possible, "cheating" be damned. I would say in my case it pretty much adds those points back from being Asian.

Come on.

This is the continent of centuries old class and generational wealth. The continent of royalty and selective breeding.


One's class, i.e. social status, is one of, if not the most important thing in Europe. It permeates everything in every European country.

There's some truth in this. Although a man of high status has equity that he can take to any national dating/ mating market, the greatest interest in a man's coin seems to be from Anglophone women.

It is probably difficult to be conclusive about this as the gap between rich and poor tends to be wider in Anglo capitalist countries than it is in the continental European social democracies.

RE: The SMV thread - sexual market value
This academic journal is a must read. I first came across this during my PUA days (and therefore before I heard of terms such as hypergamy and SMV etc) and it is telling that what I learnt from this journal has stayed with me - unlike the PUA pseudo-theories that I read.

I recommend that the contents of this study be discussed in this SMV thread.

Baumeister and Vohs (2004) Sexual Economics: Sex as Female Resource for Social Exchange in Heterosexual Interactions

Quote:Abstract

A heterosexual community can be analyzed as a marketplace in which men seek to acquire sex from women by offering other resources in exchange. Societies will therefore define gender roles as if women are sellers and men buyers of sex. Societies will endow female sexuality, but not male sexuality, with value (as in virginity, fidelity, chastity). The sexual activities of different couples are loosely interrelated by a marketplace, instead of being fully separate or private, and each couple's decisions may be influenced by market conditions. Economic principles suggest that the price of sex will depend on supply and demand, competition among sellers, variations in product, collusion among sellers, and other factors. Research findings show gender asymmetries (reflecting the complementary economic roles) in prostitution, courtship, infidelity and divorce, female competition, the sexual revolution and changing norms, unequal status between partners, cultural suppression of female sexulity, abusive relationships, rape, and sexual attitudes.

RE: The SMV thread - sexual market value
The more and more I look at this, women's SMV is going to continue to be inflated like the UK domestic property market. This will see a rise in rents too (paid sexual services).

The male sexual deficit: A social fact of the 21st century

Quote:Abstract

Nationally representative interview surveys of sexual behaviour and attitudes proliferated around the globe from 1990 onwards as a result of the AIDS scare, yet are overlooked by sociologists. This article reviews findings from some 30 sex surveys around the world showing that large and substantively important differences between men and women in the centrality of sexuality, sexual desire, sexual behaviour and attitudes persist in the 21st century, long after the contraceptive and sexual revolutions of the 1960s. Women’s lesser sexual motivation and interest means that many heterosexual men experience a shortfall in desired sexual activity. A reversal of the sex ratio to a male surplus among prime-age adults and other trends suggest that the sexual deficit among men may increase. The male sexual deficit (or surplus male sexuality) helps to explain sexual harassment, sexual violence, rape, rising demand for commercial sexual services and other behaviours that are almost exclusively male.

The top relationship dealbreakers are mentioned below. Women are more likely to be intolerant towards these dealbreakers than men which may suggest male surplus is leading to easy replacements.

With the migrant invasion nationalistic concerns may trump the internal differences of wealth.

RE: The SMV thread - sexual market value
Chiming in for my town - Singapore.

The country has been dealing with a large influx of expats, especially men. One thing it's done is increase the demand for local women, especially those of the Chinese and Malay ethnicity. What is under underpinning this logic is our supply of women haven't increased as much, while the demand side has increased due to more consumers. So expats and locals compete for the same limited supply of local women.

Since most of the local guys don't hit on expat women, this has resulted in a particular thirst for expat women of a particular age (usually those about to hit the wall). The expat women who came to Singapore for work alone--a minority relocate to Singapore for their boyfriends--seem to be having a hard time dating. That said, this lack of demand doesn't apply for attractive expat women in their prime - especially the attractive ones.

My hypothesis is that white women (over the age of 27, in the 5 - 7 attractiveness range) are more open to dating East Asian men. Someone should use Tinder as an unscientific way to test this:
  • Perform a sizeable number of right hand swipes (n > 250)
  • Track how many women of race, age & attractive you swiped right on
  • Track my matches based race, age, and attractiveness

With enough participants generating data, it's quite possible we could literally map out the Sexual Market.

...this is what I get for replying while studying for a statistics exam.

RE: The SMV thread - sexual market value
This is something I hypothesized in the Asian Guy Travel Thread with regards to Singapore:
https://www.rooshvforum.com/thread-2750-...pid1316825

Here it is copy & pasted again:

"Also, I have never been to Singapore. But here is a hypothesis in relation to Hong Kong:

1) Singapore packs less ex-pat women than Hong Kong, but with high numbers of ex-pat westerners likely making bigger bank than their counterparts in HK.
2) If there are ex-pat females in Singapore, they're like spoken for by a western ex-pat male.
3) Hong Kong packs bigger numbers of ex-pat females not spoken for that need company."

Singapore however looks like a different beast similar to that of Dubai where most ex-pat females seem to be spoken for with very little actually coming alone to work. That's just impression I get when talking to my peeps around world.

Based on a western chick I used to bang who now lives in Singapore with her ex-pat husband, she confirmed my hypothesis to be true. The Asian guys in aforementioned travel thread confirmed this as well.

My "ex" also confirmed that westerners making great bank in Singapore are more heavily valued than in HK with local women as well.

As an Asian guy, I wouldn't move to Singapore knowing that there are just so many more single foreign women (including other Asian chicks) in Hong Kong working there or doing study abroad. I would have to be extremely enthused with local Singapore women do relocate there..which I'm not...

That's basically all Asian countries (China, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea, etc) and this only happens if you're a native or look/sound the part (i.e. are Asian ethnicity). If you're a foreigner looking to score a one night stand, it doesn't happen.

RE: The SMV thread - sexual market value
Can't tell about China as I've never been there, but I can speak for Thailand. Among high girls, this question comes often. And it's part of Asian culture. Dating down is very frowned upon. We assign a SMV value to girls, and they do the same.

RE: The SMV thread - sexual market value
Japanese girls, esp in non-Tokyo cities, will often fuck you simply because you are a westerner. They want their flag too. But your SMV has to be decent, not near the bottom. Almost every Jap girl in an expat/American bar is looking to sleep with a US/UK guy.

Its true Russian women pay a lot of attention to being slim, attractive and taking care of their men.

This is because Russia is far from a wealthy welfare state.

If you want to get yourself an attractive woman who will make an effort, look at countries where the state (government) doesn't strip assets of males and give them to women for nothing, but countries where the women need to earn the resources from men via the age old transaction.

This is so well said I had to read it a couple of times. Great point.

RE: The SMV thread - sexual market value

Post your observations about SMV in your town, including if you see couples that look like they "follow" sound rules of SMV or "violate" it. Describe what you see.

a few things I have done:
1. Notice my posture - I made a habit of maintaining an upright posture, and experiencing in "Alpha" body language.
A lot of guys I see just slouch. Its noticeable.
2. Appearance - Even from before my Red-Pill awareness, I've been dressing sharp to work (business casual). In Israel it is "more formal" than expected. I'm keeping it also for off-work time (unless doing stuff which makes no sense in dressing like that). You get noticed.
3. I flirt way more than I use to - this makes you higher value, since you have the social skills to do it.
4. Doing more of what @Phoenix advice
Quote:Lived a more interesting life
I go to interesting meetups (and also hit on girls there).


In Israel it is not uncommon to see a meh looking female with a better looking male. The other way around also happens, but then you see what CH calls "shit eating grin" on the guy's face (or indifference).
I have it in my kids class. The guy is beta (programmer, looks good but lacks dominance) and the wife nags on occasion (witness it several times).
Classic SMV.

I do this with my LTRs - "spot the couple" Amuse
You look at a couple and check their body language and facial expressions. If one pays attention you can almost "read" the power dynamic and SMV status (as it is visible via women's looks). I rarely miss (but it happens).

Israel is a semi-welfare state. So sometimes you see the said dynamic. However, violation sometimes occurs. It means that one does not have all the information.

RE: The SMV thread - sexual market value
This is quite a good thread, and it deserves to be bumped.

So...

Quote:What have you done to successfully raise your SMV?


I have invested plenty of time, as well as money, since last year, in order to increase my SMV. Based upon observations from girls, I was like 7,5 (slightly above average).


First of all, I have started going to the gym again (started with 3 times a week, and now, 5). This was a huge priority from me, because I have lost a lot of muscle while being on active duty. I have regained what I have lost, I gained a little bit more. Tomorrow, I will swap to Mehdi's 5x5 stronglifts, to increase my strength and muscle mass further. Being built like a tank does indeed increase your SMV - despite all the media BS that girls hate that.


Second of all, I have upgraded my wardrobe significantly. Before, I used to have like 2 pair of jeans, several black shirts (like most guys) and a cheap suit that I bought for a high school prom, and which I rarely used thereafter.
Now, thanks to this forum (no joking, I am being truthful here - WIA deserves a honorably mention, by the way), I bought quite a new stuff -a lot of red (I used to believe only gays wear red) and bight colored shirts, some suits (charcoal, and striped charcoal) and a Tissot watch made of titanium (including the bracelet) - PRC100 model.


I also always rock Rayban Wayfarers, with black lenses, regardless of weather (I like being a hot mystery man). When you combine them with a slim fitted white shirt (so that your breasts and abs can be seen, buy one size smaller) and jeans...Kissy Although I am far from looking like Arnie or Coleman, I have above average body for a guy in mid 20ties.


I can only imagine what will happen 365 days from now if I keep it up.



Also, in the near future, I am planning to buy a chopper, mainly thanks to Cappy (cool dude, check the videos that inspired me in the links below).

All things considered, I think I have raised my SMV to 8/10 and I will not be stopping until I hit the very top (being 9.5/10 - 10/10 is pure perfection, which cannot be achieve). It will take a long time, as well as money, but I will do it. Anyone can really. Get up, and start working.

I listened to the first one. He has a few tidbits of truth but this is mostly exaggeration and ignorance of cars and the car business, and more importantly he is repeating a narrative. You have heard of narratives from SJWs who spew about rape culture etc. His narrative is far less dangerous but an unthoughtful narrative nonetheless. It's "nothing fancy is worth more than the basic version."

I differ with him not only about cars but about this philosophy which permeates his rant. I seek to live my life in an aspirational way and want to enjoy MORE comfort, more safety, and more innovation. What this guy is basically repeating is the tried Midwestern almost Amish view of prudent, spartan living. He doesn't see the folly in his own advice in Minnesota to young guys to get a bike instead of a car. Again it's not an "evil" philosophy as he presented it but taken to its extreme it would be.

German cars are safer, period. Mercedes and BMW consistently innovate and lead the industry. Lexus, which he lumps in together, are well made and finely tuned (and also safe).

He is also wrong about depreciation. The cars don't depreciate primarily because they are out of style. Most change style only every 7 years. How would that explain the difference of price according to him? The fact is with more miles comes more expense. If a new car is $100,000 and another one has 2000 miles it cant be worth the same as long as the buyer has the new option. The same car 15 years old and beat up and in need of repairs is $2000 not because primarily it is out of style but because it is much more of a liability.

He is partly right about the don't buy a car to impress girls bit, clearly if you are thinking only to impress girls you will magically attract gold-diggers. Where he misses the mark is: DO buy cars to GO ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS AS A MAN. Then the car, the man, the business, the game and attitude are a part of who you want to be and what you want to accomplish rather than chosen based on the perceived judgment of others.

If it is part of what you want for yourself is to do is drive a NEW Mustang and it is worth the money (and the opportunity cost of that money not being available for other consumption or investment) then do it.
