Getting Laid the Tasha Paradise Way

A looming Valentine's Day is like the last few strains of musical chairs. Everyone is in a hurry to partner up. Women get a lot of advice on picking up men, but there is not much out there for the average man. Most of the advice I read for men seems like so much bullshit. It's usually just a guide for getting laid, and even that is opportunistic bullshit.

The Tasha Paradise guide for getting laid will teach you how to get some action while respecting the woman's boundaries and self-esteem. If you are thinking to yourself, "As if I care about a woman's boundaries and self-esteem" then you need to be held back a grade. But if you are down for some mutually respectful recreational sex, who better to school you on how to get laid than a woman? It takes a thief to catch a thief.

First of all, you must accept that it is probably not going to happen the first night you meet us. You have to lay the groundwork first. You do get lucky occasionally, and then, good for you! But insistence and desperation are turn-offs. It's like bartering at flea markets. You have to be willing to walk away.

When on the prowl, be aware that women can generally be divided up into 3 categories:

1. The ones who cannot or will not ever sleep with you - Women are taught to be gentle and to not hurt people's feelings. So if a woman blows you off she probably means it. Especially if she tells you she is a lesbian. She is. So move on.

2. The ones who want to sleep with you but face an obstacle - if that obstacle is a boyfriend, give it up. Obstacles can mean drama. But often the reason she won't sleep with you is because she really likes you. It may seem counterintuitive, but think about it. Relationships don't usually start with one-night-stands. All she needs is a little patience.

3. The ones who already want to sleep with you, or aren't quite sure yet.

Let's concentrate on category 3.
