His follow-up, Nice Try, is set to come out Fall 2019 through Harper Perennial.
In fact, I’m going to talk about how science almost ruined my life. This is a story about vanquishing a nemesis which is very exciting, and it’s hard work. And to increase the stakes, I will tell you that my nemesis was the CEO of a pharmaceutical company. Which sounds very impressive until I tell you that he is the CEO of a pharmaceutical company that exclusively manufactured a penis-numbing spray marketed towards premature ejaculators. ”The reason he was in my life at all is because I used to do a lot of freelance writing for women’s magazines. I got an email from an editor that I worked for pretty frequently. She said, very understandable, “I’m not into that idea at all.” Which like of course she wasn’t. I was hoping that there would be enough to write about but also not so much that there were lasting effects that I'd have to explain to future sexual partners. Masturbating felt kind of like listening to a fish song. He was rapping about short-term versus long-term mating from an evolutionary biology and psychology perspective. He was grabbing his crotch and being like, “Yo, yo, I ain’t no hoe,” or something like that.
If you can prove me wrong then I'd be interested to know, but I feel indifferent about this.
I feel that everything in life requires balance and in order to get a girl to like you, you should be yourself, be mindful of ways to improve yourself, and strike a balance between acting like a jerk and on the contrary, a 'wet noodle' who is no challenge whatsoever.people who lack the drive to improve themselves fear others who do who become conscious of their own actions and strive to perfect them, typically working to censor them and stop them to prevent competition and declining options for themselves (e.g., you will rarely have a successful career woman who's had to tooth and claw her way to success and improve herself dramatically stand and accuse you of being manipulative for learning seduction, though you will often have a girl who dropped out of high school and works at the local taco shop fly into a frenzy over how "manipulative" men like you are, presuming of course that she doesn't actually know you and is instead setting you up in her mind as some diabolical "other").
