Notable members of the seduction community Neil Strauss (Style) David DeAngelo Juggler Mystery Ross Jeffries Lance Mason Ross Jeffries is a former comedy writer and the creator of "Speed Zan Seduction," a set of teachings that draws from Neuro Linguistic Programming and other hypnotic techniques. Jeffries claims these methods help men understand women, particularly their motivations and psychology, in order to successfully establish sexual relations. Ross has taught at numerous seminars in locations including Los Angeles, New York and London. Ross's current version of Speed Seduction focuses on techniques of moving energy through the body and "magick". He and his supporters claim great success in changing the attitudes and thought processes of men seeking success with women.

Ross was born in September of 1958 and was raised under the Jewish faith in GardenaHawthorne, L.A., California. He had a variety of jobs, and worked at various times insurance claims adjustor, marketing assistant, paralegal, and failed comedy writer. But it was the notion of Neuro Linguistic Programming, the basis of a book by Richard Bandler, that made him leave all of these careers behind to pursue a more psychological life. Ross' nephews (Gabriel, Gideon, and Eitan) frequent his seminars. They are his apprentices in the seduction practice and Ross refers to them as his "pimp nephews."

Speed Seduction
Jeffries was the first of the Seduction Community to create a site and publish user-friendly books on dating women and self-improvement. His first book, "How To Get the Women You Desire Into Bed," created a huge buzz[citation needed] and online communities were created to discuss and aid the development of the art of seduction[citation needed]. Ross has many products, including "Unstoppable Confidence," "Fear into Charisma," "Gold WalkUp," his seduction home-study course spanning 13 audio CD's and a 107 page accompanying book, and his seminars. From the Bahamas to Palo Alto to London, he lectures seminars on "Hyper-Responsive Connections." The basis of the original Speed Seduction books and courses is that a person feels the emotions expressed in a story or a linguistical pattern, and by using anchors and "weasel phrases," these states can be anchored to you. From that point on, you can remind a woman of these emotional states by your appearance or touch, as featured in How to Get the Women You Desire into Bed (1992). A student of Richard Bandler's NLP school, Jeffries was the first to apply the NLP persuasion tactics to the dating field in a structured and systematic way.[citation needed] Jeffries' students have included Style, David DeAngelo, Orion, Swinggcat, Stevie PUA, Papa, IN10SE, Rick H and Kamal, almost all of whom have become seductionists. Jeffries successfully collaborated for a number of years on SS Seminars and products with retired Air Force Major Yates Canipe and retired Army Major Mark Cunningham [1], a classically trained hypnotist from Ohio. Ross Jeffries now collaborates with Vince Kelvin and his team at "The Los Angeles Self Empowerment Center". He was featured as a pick-up mentor to Neil Strauss in Strauss' bestselling book "The Game".

Examples of Speed Seduction Theory
The "Basic Speed Seduction" course consists of CD/DVD recordings of a three-day live seminar, a workbook, and a deck of NLP "Patterns" used to structure sentences as commands. The system has you speak some words of a sentence at a normal tone, while the parts of the sentence you want the person to interpret subliminally as a command are said at a lower register. An example of a Pattern would be, "I told my dog to go inside the house." The words "go inside" may be interpreted by the unconscious mind as a command. A weasel phrase would be to say something without directly violating the other. For example, "Just for the sake of me getting to know you better what would someone have to do to

get you totally intrigued?" Another Jeffries device is phonetic ambiguity. Sentence example: "Standing on the hill, I could see the river twinkling below me." According to Jeffries, the words "below me" could be unconsciously interpreted as an embedded command to "blow me". Especially, if at the point those words were spoken, you spread your hands palms up with fingers pointing down at the crotch area. However as one advances through the Speed Seduction courses/products, the entire technique changes to traits like Signal Recognition, essential NLP skills and defusing the approaches of other AFCs (average frustrated chumps). In various seminars (palo alto 02', London 03') he rumors of writing a new book.

Jeffries argues that his methods are completely different from the "dating framework" that is advocated by other "romance gurus." He considers the dating framework to be heavily promoted by the entertainment industry for commercial reasons and to be ineffective for bringing men and women closely together, either for sex or romance. Jeffries denies that he is a misogynist, claiming his techniques are designed to bring pleasure to both men and women through a deeper understanding of the needs of each person. [2] Controversy has also appeared towards Jeffries's online presence, arguing with other Pickup Artist's (PUA's) such as Tyler Durden[3] and various other members of the mASF over general technique, principles and original creation of techniques. There is controversy over how various Speed Seduction "Forbidden Patterns" such as "October man sequence" are kept "secret" to all but a few.[citation needed]

Film portrayals
Jeffries is rumored to be the model for Tom Cruise's character in the 1999 movie Magnolia, Frank "T.J." Mackey, a predatory "seduction guru." Cruise himself denies this, though Paul Thomas Anderson, who wrote and directed the film, stated in the magazine "Creative Screenwriting" that Jeffries was the main inspiration for the Mackey character.[citation needed] At the 2003 London Speed Seduction Seminar, Jeffries re-enacted Cruise's opening scene in Magnolia, complete with Richard Strauss' music as featured in the film.
