There are few Internet subcultures ickier than pickup artistry (PUA), the science of targeting women for casual sex using a combination of manipulation, ridicule, and magic tricks, then bragging about it online.
That Mystery dude is a complete charmer. So is the guy with the “rape van.”
Thankfully, there’s an easy way to see the worst of the online seduction community, even if you’re not on Instagram.
@PUA_txt tweets actual things people post on PUA message boards, trawling through ridiculous threads so you don’t have to. With more than 1,000 tweets so far, the feed, run by @virgiltexas, has picked up more than 4,200 followers.
Fair warning: some of the following tweets are NSFW and/or completely gross.
