I’m back home in San Francisco now from the epic Seduction Conference. It was a really fun weekend … although for me it felt a little more subdued than past trips to Vegas and LA. This is because of things going on in my life (some big announcements are likely in the next few months) and not because of the event itself. Formhandle from Fast Seduction runs a great conference.
First off, I want to express appreciation to the gurus who showed up despite some tragedies of people close to them (for Cameron’s poignant account, see here). It shows a real dedication both to their friends and to the students who attended the conference, and I’m sending out hugs and good vibes to them.
A few speakers cancelled, but that did not affect the overall quality of the speakers or the conference because Jay was able to line up equally amazing speakers to take their places.
Some highlights of the weekend for me:
* Zan was there, and I just love Zan. We got to hang out a lot of the weekend. Among other things, he showed us a film that a French woman made about him — it took her five days to shoot, is only four minutes long, won some fancy shmancy art award … and is incredibly sexy and artsy. Watching that film has me very inspired … perhaps someday it’ll be available for viewing by the general public.
* I made up with one of the gurus who had been upset with me. We ended up sharing a big hug before he left. This makes me really happy because I like to be on peaceful terms with people I care about. He gave a great program, too, and even got a girl in the audience all riled up and giggling.
* Another unexpected surprise was that Tyler Durden (otherwise known as Owen) from RSD ended up being one of the speakers, too. Owen used me as his “example girl” during his presentation, which I enjoyed a lot. And Zan and I and a bunch of other guys went out to dinner with him afterwards at California Pizza Kitchen on Saturday night. Really fun :-)
* A film crew interviewed me for a documentary about the seduction community. I’m still trying to find out more details about it, and will let you all know when I do. They interviewed a lot of people from the conference, and my guess is that it’ll end up being a very interesting film.
* Cameron Teone’s accent is absolutely adorable. And I love his fierce devotion to his friends, which is palpable just being around him.
* Will H. was there, and I just love that guy. He’s like a big teddy bear and he’s just so open and affectionate. It always feels good being around him.
* Brad P. actually remembered me from the Vegas conference. That surprised me!
* I got to meet the famous (or infamous, as the case may be) Cliff from Cliff’s List. He is a real sweetheart.
* It was really fascinating to see the reactions of the only other women in the room for the conference, one mother and three women who worked for the hotel and were helping with the microphones. The reactions ranged from sincere interest and enthusiasm (by a girl Hypnotica brought on stage) to abject horror. It’s so interesting to me to see how two people can be exposed to the exact same stimulus and have two utterly different reactions.
* I met Stephen Nash for the first time and really resonated with what he had to say, the most important part of which was “you must make something other than women the number one priority in your life.”
* We went to a party in the Hollywood Hills on Friday night, and I got to hear some great music in their upstairs studio, where I was lounging on the couch. Turns out this is the studio for American Voodoo Records.
* After having dinner with Owen on Saturday night, a group of us went to another party in Manhattan Beach. Wow, I love those adorable little bungalows with the wild gardens. There was karaoke in the basement, lots of fun people, and a good time was had by all. I met a really cool guy, and we quickly got into deep conversation about polyamory and open relationships. We were really vibing. About 30 minutes in, he turns to me and says, “Why am I not meeting a girl like you here?!” Lol :-) What can I say? I’m a rare breed.
* I was interviewed for the Barry Kirkey show … yikes! The only problem was that the questions were so hilarious that I couldn’t stop laughing long enough to answer them. I was asked, for example, whether I aspire to be the “best PUA groupie.” OMG … Lol!
I’m probably going to write some follow-up reports and maybe give some highlights of the gurus’ presentations. Let me know if there’s anything in particular you all would like to hear more about.
Meanwhile, there will be fun reports coming up on Mehow’s 10SSA program and Entropy’s bootcamp in San Francisco this weekend.
