Q&A with JT the Asian Playboy Q: When did you first develop an interest in seduction arts? A: When I graduated from college in 2001 (As a very late bloomer, I had my first kiss and girlfriend in college at the age of 20), I moved from Florida to California and suddenly realized that while I had been busy succeeding in academics, I hadn’t taken the time to simultaneously develop my social skills. For 3 years I tried the standard, socially acceptable route for meeting women like: Blind datesHappy hourMixersSports groupsOnline datingEtc After I got rejected from Eharmony for being too analytical and cerebral (how’s that for a wakeup call?)

Q: Who has been your biggest influence? The Official PUA Site. Culture Shock. Quick Definition: The anxiety, surprise, confusion, and shock that a person may feel when he finds himself living in an social environment that is significantly different than the one he is accustomed to. Full Definition: Culture shock was a sociology term developed by Kalervo Oberg in 1954. It stems from the study of international students, military, diplomatic, and foreign affairs families.
The initial “shock” refers to the difficulties in assimilating the new culture, causing difficulty in knowing what is appropriate and what is not given the new social norms, order, and influences of power. In studies of Third Culture Kids, it was found that some students adapt very well to the new environment after the initial shock. In PUA land, culture shock can refer to stepping out of your comfort zone in any significantly new social group or venue. Usage: I was in complete culture shock when I arrived in the beach in Rio and everyone was naked!
