Approaching women is one thing, but actually creating real attraction is another. And let me tell you, if there was ever a subject that confounds even the best of us at times, that's it.

Well, get ready to put this problem to bed once and for all as The Social Man's Christian Hudson and I work the issue from every angle, giving you practical tips on how to flirt effectively with women and make sure they're into you.

Has seduction in the true sense of the word gone the way of chivalry...seemingly irrelevant in today's post-modern feminist world? Following on the success of the last episode, join another New Yorker friend of mine, Jennifer Rhodes of Rapport Relationships, for the clearest conversation ever defining true seduction from a woman's perspective.

Jennifer will also reveal what women have done to shoot themselves in the foot, depriving themselves of a quality romantic experience with a man.

Co-Host Suzanna Matthews (http://www.mountaintoppodcast.com/maven) You go out with her and everything seems fine...but obviously it wasn't because she NEVER returns your calls after that. What happened there? My guest co-host for this episode is super easy-going and guy-friendly dating coach Suzanna Matthews, aka The Date Maven. In this episode we expose the major ways both men AND women screw up on dates--usually without even realizing it. In addition to revealing exactly how 'Mr. Nice Guy' tends to be his own worst enemy on dates, we boldly delve into touchy subjects like manners, weird dating conversation, bringing the right energy, and attempted humor gone horribly wrong. Is there such thing as sexual innuendo etiquette? What critical dating mistake do we tend to make more and more as we get older? And what is it that virtually everyone does on dates that's invariably a HUGE blunder? Is social media actually conditioning you for dating disasters? Plus, you'll discover the number one way to get a woman to throw her napkin on the table and storm away. You don't want to be THAT guy...but no worries, Suzanna has solutions for all of these problems, including what women really, truly want on dates. It's not what you might think, and it's actually super easy. Hey, did she really say 'salamanders come out of their mouths' at 16:35? http://www.mountaintoppodcast.com/coaching

Rank #4: Seduce Women And Give Them Incredible Pleasure, Even In The #MeToo Era - MTP139

Podcast cover
Read more

When the #MeToo hashtag first started, one of my wife's friends posted on Facebook about it. She said, 'Does this mean 'pound me too'? Because if it does, I'm all for it!' Women loved the post in droves, while nearly every man wouldn't touch it with a ten-foot pole. And so the dilemma started...we as men with a healthy sex drive may be all about respecting women, but how do we reconcile that with the #MeToo era? Obviously, rapists are bad and should be locked up. But is talking to an attractive woman and/or simply looking at her a crime as well? Well, this time I'm welcoming the first-ever repeat guest onto the show. That's David Shade, the legendary sex expert for men whose tagline is 'give women incredible pleasure'. In this episode we'll offer you crystal clarity about what it means to be a sexually confident--and even dominant--man while still giving women exactly what they want in the bedroom. You may be surprised that this is the very first time David has talked publicly about the #MeToo movement, and you'll find out why that is (it's not because he's a bad guy). We'll cover the difference between being dominant and being a controlling jerk, why what women really crave in the bedroom is so counter-intuitive to most men, the significance of seduction to women, what to do if you consistently encounter women who don't want to have sex, and much more.

Next, you'll start getting Claudia's practical tips for being more charming, right off the bat.

Given that my co-host is the author of a wildly-popular book called The Like Switch, you may have a mental picture of him as that life-of-the-party kind of guy with boundless energy. But a laid-back yet fearless, straight-shooting demeanor is just the first surprise Jack Schafer has in store for you. You see, before he became a college professor and started writing books about how to inspire people to like you and want more of you, Jack was an FBI agent specializing in behavior analysis and recruiting spies. This gives him a unique perspective on how to read people's non-verbal cues, while also artfully imparting how to improve what he calls your 'Likeability Quotient'. Jack will show you how to literally read people's lips, but not in the way you might be guessing. He'll also reveal a technique that makes people like you one-hundred percent of the time. Jack also defines such fascinating concepts as friend or foe signals, the urban scowl, and his four-step friendship formula. Discover the power of patience in building friendships, along with how to turn up or turn down the intensity of a relationship. Jack's take on kino escalation and the power of 'misattribution' are sure to surprise you...and stay tuned until the very end for a no-holds barred throwdown on what the hell is wrong with people on social media nowadays, and what we can to to improve the tone and bring civility back to online interactions.

You'd think after twelve years of running a shop called X & Y Communications I'd have done a show on communication by now. Well, that all changes right now thanks to my new friend and fellow 'old bull on the hill' Robert Manni from The Guy's Guys" Guide To Love. Plan on hearing a dogpile of wisdom we just didn't have in our twenties, including my 'mansplaining' is a thing (and a brilliant response to it), why women want a man who 'listens', and the basic reasons why men and women have been missing each other for thousands of years. We'll also reveal the weird paradox between women who are leaders in their daily lives and the relationships they have with their significant others. We also talk about why women aren't so quick to bring their ideas to the table when talking to men...and it's NOT why you think. Plus, we reveal the truth about women's 'tests', along with how to deal with the new anti-male narrative while living your truth. Why do so many people stay in bad relationships with horrible miscommunication patterns? What should you do when women start hammering you with probing questions on first dates? Plus, lessons from conversations with women that actually transfer over into social interactions with other men and even business dealings. Finally, as a special bonus you'll discover what Robert did when he was finally ready to get married.

Rank #8: Sexual Tension And How To Make It Happen - TCW64

Podcast cover

We love women. We love having sex with women. We've heard that women love to have sex with us also. But how is it that some guys seem to turn women on so effortlessly, while the vast majority of others are left completely mystified? In case you haven't heard already, the ability to make women hot for you is a learned skill...the art of creating 'sexual tension'. Tragically, most men completely misunderstand the concept, if they bother to even TRY to wrap their heads around it at all...hence the proliferation of bad texting and lame sexual innuendo that goes on. So what in the world ARE we talking about here? How DO you make it happen? And how are we supposed to reconcile being a 'sexual threat' with the recent proliferation of YouTube videos that would have us believe we're practically rapists if we even talk to a woman on the street? Most of all, how come all of those pickup artists who were telling us that 'marriage is for wimps' back in 2005 all have wives and kids now? New Yorker Chris 'Sixty' Anderson joins me to handle all of those questions and more...including one from Dennis in New Jersey who dropped us a line to ask if being thirty pounds overweight is what's REALLY killing his mojo lately.

Susan always has a way with words when it comes to sex, and in this show she drops simple phrases here and there that could be full episodes unto themselves.

Who knows how, but we've managed to go way too long around here without talking about approaching and talking to women. With that in mind, my guest for this show is one of the most well-known pickup artists of the last ten years or so. Given that his style of writing and talking about women has historically differed greatly from mine, I figured it was time to shake things up a bit and compare notes on how to talk to women and create attraction. Was what resulted a hot mess or did we end up seeing eye-to-eye more than expected? That's for you to find out in this latest episode...but you can bet on gaining tremendous (and even original) insight into how to spark conversation with women that makes them drop everything and adore you.

Rank #11: Decoding Women's Sexual Attraction Signals - TCW60

Podcast cover

It's no secret that women think differently than we as men do, therefore their actions are oftentimes difficult to interpret. It can drive us stark raving nuts...as well as keeping us from enjoying the company of the very women we desire the most. Well, this time I'm joined by Craig Miller, who has recently authored something called the Sexual Decoder System. He's about to reveal to you some shocking secrets about the type of hints and 'hidden messages' that women send us all the time when they're attracted to us, but which most men completely miss. The truth is pretty straightforward: if you're missing the signals, you're missing out on a LOT of women in your life. But the good news is once you know what to look for, your fortunes with women will increase exponentially...and fast. While we're at it, we address a voicemail from Chris in San Diego who's not exactly a 'party guy', but he finds himself particularly attracted to 'party GIRLS'. Does he stand a chance at getting in on the action he wants? And if so how? All this and more in this surprising episode.

Why is it men are so concerned about speaking their truth when talking to women? Well, according to returning guest Kim Seltzer's interesting perspective, men and women both tend to complain about the widespread miscommunication between the genders nowadays. This leads to lots of offended people, followed inevitably by pandemic fear of talking to each other. But as it turns out, there's a pattern to how everything tends to fall apart, and it's easy to remove yourself from the cycle...which you'll discover. Next, Kim shares the very foundation for talking to women effectively. It's going to blow you away because it's NOT what you think, and has probably never been talked about anywhere else. Better yet, did you know that talking to women might actually go better for you the LESS prepared you are with something slick to say? But how do you establish that all-important safety and security all the while? Also, what is the most powerful aspect of pickup success that no other pickup advice has ever dared to admit? Plus, discover the one external factor that can instantly increase how effective you are in communicating with women. Ultimately, however, it all comes down to this...is there ever a right time to say to a woman, 'You're going to love my nuts'?

Podcast cover

Forget the stereotypes about hypnosis that you may have heard along the way. Clovis Colley is a well-known hypnotherapist who specializes in helping people gain greater access to their skills and maximize their personal power in areas they haven't even tapped into yet. As you listen to this episode, we'll expose common limiting beliefs that lead to anger and bitterness toward women, profoundly affecting your relationships and interactions with them. The crazy part is that you may have never even considered them before. This goes way beyond what your Dad modeled for you...birth order, high intelligence, parental over-protection, even the bombardment of media and the public opinions of virtually everyone via social media. Clovis can eliminate such limiting beliefs and install charismatic and magnetic new positive ones very quickly. As an added bonus, be sure to listen closely from 23:44 through 26:23 for my secrets to why men with a higher view of women tend to have better relationships with them for reasons they don't even realize. Finally, Clovis talks about what rapport really is, and why it's so widely misunderstood.

The idea of 'radical transformation' appeals to nearly everyone. Most of us would love to be the best version of our most authentic self. But what do you do if you don't even know what you want...or who you even are? My co-host this time is serial entrepreneur and former ESPN SportsCenter host James Swanwick, who has done more thinking AND acting on this topic than most. Among the deep, life-changing questions we tackle in this episode are: Do we recognize when we're the ones causing ourselves problems, purely because of the bad habits we've let creep in over time? What if you know you a certain habit is killing you, yet you somehow can't find the will power to stop? Is the status quo really 'safer' than the risks you take by making changes to your life? You'll discover weird but powerful ways to live your passion and achieve wild success without burning out like a workaholic. Why the part of your life most people treat as a 'throwaway'--or even a total waste--might be the most strategic time you spend in your entire day. Find out how to weigh the risks of going for it in life relative to the rewards. And wait until you hear this ex-SportsCenter host's surprising thoughts on sports fandom. For good measure, you'll also get random thoughts on why Australian guys think whatever beer you're drinking is piss water, and how porn actresses are probably more famous than most mainstream celebrities.

My guest co-host, author Acamea Deadwiler, is all about breaking pre-conceived notions. In her book Single That!, she writes words of encouragement and clarity to single women. But...I couldn’t help but recognize the immense value to us as men of gaining insight into her list of myths, especially since Acamea is so level-headed, positive and easy-going in her approach to men and women finding love together. So how about it, then? If a woman is still single in, say, her thirties, does that mean there's something wrong with her? What about women who think something is wrong with YOU because you’re still single? Do women have unrealistic expectations nowadays...both before AND after they’re married? Are single women just too busy? Are they lonely 'spinsters'? Or is the opposite true...that they're 'female players'? Are most women 'golddiggers' at heart, intending to find a man who will pay their way in life? And why do all single women seem to ask, 'What are you looking for?' before we’ve even met them yet?

A blast from the past has resurfaced, and it's none other than my long-time friend and frequent oldskool David D. co-collaborator Will H., aka 'Big Will'. Together, he and I are like two examples of the 'old bull' from ye olde 'two bulls on the hill' joke. We were sure to poke a lot of fun at ourselves and tell embarrassing stories in this episode, and we sincerely trust that you young bulls out there will be fully equipped to 'walk down there and get 'em all' after you're finished listening. And rest assured, whatever age you are you're going to get lots of laughs out of this show. Will H. is known for his humorous way of bringing logical fact to light, and we've never had a dull moment recording together. So of course, we fully address why younger women tend to love older men so much...and better yet, how younger guys can bridge the gap. What are the most infamous fashion faux pas committed by men...along with the social ones that basically act as chick repellent? How is it that older guys can possibly be more handsome and sexy to women...even physically? And on the other hand, what does it look like when older guys refuse to grow up? Hint: it's worse for them, not better. Add it up, and this episode boils down to taking what older men know about how to attract women, bottling it up and giving y'all a big swig of it.

Rank #18: Bring Out A Woman's Erotic Side - TCW52

Podcast cover
Read more

What does it mean to truly be erotic, and why does it drive women so crazy? Join my illustrious co-host Allana Pratt and me as we talk about how to separate yourself from other guys who focus only on the 'sexual' without exploring the deeper side of male/female polarity. Allana reveals powerful secrets to being the man who turns women on at their very core, giving new meaning to the phrase 'getting physical'. While we're at it, I get Allana to explain why women can indulge in romance novels and 'literotica' even as they get angry and jealous at men for watching porn. (What's up with that, anyway?) In keeping with the theme of the show, we also answer a short but sweet voicemail from Randy in New York, who wants to know how to keep his long-term relationship from getting stale and boring. Wait until you hear the answer to that one...it's most likely not what you expect. Be sure to get your free report called '6 Secrets To Meeting An Amazing Woman Online' when you visit www.onlinedatingdomination.com, and check out all the practical, real-world ways to meet the women you really want online in Online Dating Domination 3.0.

Rank #19: All About Cheating - MTP118

Podcast cover
Read more

How have we gone over ten years without covering this topic? Dating and relationship coach Benjamin Ritter of Live For Yourself Consulting joins me to talk about what cheating is, people who cheat and why they do it. We reveal the huge mistake people make when beginning a relationship that practically dooms them to cheating accusations in the future. I also share the shocking conversation I had with Emily that has cheat-proofed our relationship for nearly 12 years and counting. We talk about whether or not to tell your significant other if and when cheating happens. Does having sex with someone else really have to mean a horrible, cataclysmic end to the relationship? Meanwhile, is distaste for the thought of someone else having sex with your partner simply a social construct...or even a limiting belief? Plus, hilarious observations about how Facebook actually compels people to cheat. Finally, we'll show you how to know if she's been cheating and a genius way to confront her about it. My first all-new program in over three years has now been released. It's called 'Invincible', and it's all about making you a bolder, more confident and more dominant man in the best way possible. See what's included and grab your copy here: http://www.mountaintoppodcast.com/invincible

Rank #20: How To Make Women Feel Safe And Comfortable - MTP173

Podcast cover
Read more

As often as this topic comes up, I firmly believe a large percentage of us as guys still don't fully grasp how important this subject is to women. My guest, intimacy coach Allana Pratt would go so far as to call it a dealbreaker. And wouldn't you know it...it all starts with communication, which Allana compares to a figure eight. How can being the 'hero of small things' make a major difference? How can you reconcile a woman's desire for a dominant decision-maker with our own genuine desire not to come off as a controlling jerk? And what does it take on both your best and worst days to be a rock of consistency for her? How does relaxing and resting into a woman's feminine nature actually cause her to feel safer, loving and respecting you more than ever before? And how do both you AND she gain from that relational state? While we're at it, we explain the specific kind of leadership from a man that makes a woman want to do anything for us. And hey...what DO women want, anyway? How can we make sure we're a safe, calming influence during her 'loco moments' rather than getting china plates thrown at us like in the Godfather? All of these important life questions are pondered along with many others in this particularly thought-provoking episode. Schedule 25 minutes with me for free about where you are now and where you want to be when it comes to your life with women. Sign up at http://www.mountaintoppodcast.com.

Hot Mommies - MTP208

Podcast cover
Read more

Well, here we go...it's the long overdue show on sexy motherhood. And yes, I completely understand the very premise is up for debate. That's why I brought in the hottest mommy I know, none other than my wife Emily. Curiously enough, the first direction we went in was debating the 'dad bod' and 'mom bod' factor. Do we as men really desire that rail-thin supermodel body, or do many of us prefer a woman shaped more like she's had a baby or two? In addition to what they look like, how do hot moms really turn us on? Is how we act and carry ourselves as dads even more profound an issue when it comes to turning those hot moms on? And how about 'boy moms'...what's the deal with them, and why are they so cool? How does life experience and parental obligation contribute to a particular affinity between single moms and single dads? When the idealistic 'halo' of childless singlehood fades, is that actually a good thing for a budding relationship? Why do so many dating coaches for men warn against dating single moms? Does that advice apply equally to single dads? Are there actually men and women out there who prefer single parents, even if they don't have any kids themselves? And God help us...what's the deal with 'dad jokes' and the certain women who love them?

Curiosity Is Attractive - MTP207

Podcast cover

My guest Todd Kashdan is the guru of curiosity, having literally written the book on it. As a college professor, one would think he would count his fellow highly-educated people as naturally curious...but is it really always the case? How is being curious good for your social life and your attractiveness to women? What are the perhaps unexpected benefits of adopting a curious lifestyle? Meanwhile, is there a darker side of curiosity that few people ever dare to talk about? Moreover, is there a dark side of YOU that you should be more curious about? How is curiosity--or lack thereof--tied to stress levels? Can you actually point to objective trends in today's society that are stealing our curious nature away from us? And how have media outlets capitalized upon that to get clicks, build their audience and even further an agenda? How come kids don't seem to be as curious as they used to be, and how can we instill more curiosity within them? But is it even worth being so curious when we're never going to get all the answers as long as we live? Have you talked to me for 25 minutes FREE yet? Let's talk about your plan for greatness.

Mental Toughness: Stop Being A Sucker - MTP206

Podcast cover

When his book Die Fat Or Get Tough came out, it told the truth about getting in shape that people weren't trying to hear. And that's really only one example of how Steve Siebold's work boldly addresses mental toughness in a visceral, yet engaging way that we as men can genuinely relate to. Since Steve's name came up on the show a couple of episodes ago, I reached out to him and decided to have him on to go over his latest work, along with some of his golden gems from past books. Have you ever noticed that whether it's in sports or in life, the one with the most mental toughness generally wins? Certainly, with all of the craziness happening in the world today, mental toughness is necessary just to hang in there. But what does having mental toughness even mean? And how does it directly affect your success on the field, in your career and yes...in your relationships with women? How does 'microwave thinking' defeat mental toughness? What does all of this have to do with financial success? In what ways are we being suckers in life, perhaps without even realizing it? How can mental toughness transform you into a master negotiator? What is the relationship between grit and mental toughness? How can we raise our kids to be gritty, and what makes mental toughness so crucial to successful relationships?

Masculinity From The Heart - MTP205

Podcast cover
Read more

My guest co-host believes men not only are as emotional as women are, but it's important to our masculinity to feel deeply. Don't get that confused with being an 'emo' soy boy, however. For starters, GS describes what a heart-felt relationship with a modern woman who is strong yet feminine looks like. But wait...who is this 'strong woman' anyway, and what is she like? Whoever she is, she's only going to be powerfully attracted to a masculine man. So to that end, GS outlines three ways to be fully masculine without being an unemotional robot about it. How can we respond to women rather than merely reacting? What do women mean when they say they want a man who 'listens'? And what in the world is being 'emotionally available' all about? Why do women start nagging us? And what's even scarier in a relationship than that, although few of us even recognize it when it's happening? How does providing true safety to a woman contrast with the 'alpha model' of masculinity? How can men be emotional while still being conscious of how they're affecting feminine attraction and devotion? So do real men shed tears, or not? And what does that have to do with the larger question of how to be a man of depth?

Who Are You, Anyway? - MTP204

So what's your personality type? Introverted? Extroverted? Thinking vs. feeling? Whatever...because my guest believes all the Enneagram and Myers-Briggs tests you have ever taken are only marginally better than the horoscope in the newspaper, at best. His ideas are positively iconoclastic, but he's done his homework and shares insights into developing your personality on YOUR terms that will make you stand up and cheer. The first place he drops the hammer is on the concept of personality versus identity. Are you really stuck being the person you've always been, even if you would really rather be someone different? I mean, what if 'just be yourself' isn't working? And furthermore, what if self-help doesn't work either? Does the 'body positive' crowd have your best interests at heart? Why exactly is it that people who lack vision are often so bored and depressed in the present? And on the other hand, how can our loftiest goals actually hamstring us from thriving? What happens when larger societal influences compel us to be a certain way or do certain things? How does 'learned helplessness' inhibit personal growth? How in the world are we supposed to figure ourselves out if we don't use standardized tests to guide us? And here's the clincher...how do our experiences with women shape our identity, and therefore our personality? Plus, even though I've been quiet about it until now, you'll get the story on how I shed over 50 pounds and reinvented my health.

True Love Defined - MTP203

Podcast cover

It's been nearly twelve years, but Alex Allman of Revolutionary Sex is back to cover one of the most confounding subjects possible in the world of relationship advice. That's of course, true love. What is it? What does it mean to be 'in love'? Just importantly, what does it NOT mean? And when do you know you're actually there? Well, the truth is people may have different representations and definitions for true love, but there really is some substance to it...despite how nebulous and over-used the word itself is in the English language. Alex kicks the discussion off with some deep hippie stuff from the Grateful Dead, before carefully explaining how love isn't just something to aspire to, it's something you also build...and do. He's also careful to note the spiritual aspect of romantic love, even though what he says may not be what you're expecting. And you'll definitely not hear the same old jingoistic dating advice battle cries here. To that end, we define the difference between love and infatuation. We also talk about how to make sure who you throw your heart to is going to catch it without breaking it...assuming that's possible. Is true love really a 'ball and chain', or the opposite? How do masculinity and femininity--in combination with maturity--pave the way for true love to happen? What meta-level impact does solid self-esteem have on real love that goes the distance? Is love just as much about timing as it is finding the right person? We're living in difficult times, but you're not alone. Call me for 25-minutes free.

How To Know If A Couple Has What It Takes - MTP202

My co-host is a sought after social photographer in New York City whose work is featured in magazines. He has worked hundreds of weddings. This means he has seen how that many couples get along, all from a third-party perspective. Now, if you're expecting some sort of protracted 'bridezilla' rant here, you're in for a shock. Sure, couples experience a lot of stress when getting married, but can you really tell whether or not a couple has 'the right stuff' to go the long-haul simply by observing them through the wedding process? Are most guys Steven meets with the right woman for them? How long has the typical couple been dating before tying the knot? What percentage of them meet online these days? How often does it seem like the bride cares more about throwing a big wedding party than the actual man she's marrying? What are the differences between couples who are getting married for the first time vs. the second or third time? And are most guys punching above their pay grade? (how's that for a convenient conflation of two phrases?) By the way, why to we as men dislike getting our picture taken so much?

What The Feminine Wants From The Masculine - MTP201

Podcast cover
Read more

We've long since evolved from the caveman days, but has our inherent nature as sexual beings? My guest is international speaker, media personality and politico-spiritual thought leader Preity Uupala, who firmly believes most women reject the notion that 'they don't need a man'. She has a fresh, interesting way of speaking about masculinity and femininity, including the fascinating perception that there's often a fine line between the two even while being polar opposites. Find out exactly what she means by that, along with some eye-opening thoughts on why men and women often have such a hard time relating to each other. Why do women say they want a 'sweet, nice guy' when they really don't? And how profound is the importance of having a strong sense of identity as a man in order to help a woman truly feel safe with us? Preity thinks like a woman while thoroughly enjoying men. That leads to her completely unique syntax and thought formation as she travels down a different path to ultimately reach the very same destination I have when it comes to how masculinity and femininity relate to each other. It's a fun conversation, for sure. Schedule 25-minutes on the phone with me for free at https://mountaintoppodcast.com

Interviews With Dating Gurus - MTP200

With the milestone 200th episode, it's fun to consider how far we've come, yet how many of the core ideas we still talk about have evolved. Big thanks to Eben Pagan (aka David DeAngelo) and the team at Double Your Dating for making this classic recording of my 2007 Interviews With Dating Gurus available to you as a free download for the very first time. It's truly like a blast through everything foundational here at X & Y Communications, which is fitting since it's the interview that basically put us on the map. Back then, getting this gig was for a dating coach like appearing on The Tonight Show was for a stand-up comic. We talk about deserving what you want, why self-help tactics usually fail, how (and why) to date multiple women on the way to meeting 'the one', and how I decided to get married. You'll get the first mention of 'the big four' ever, discover what an 'I/J' is and why high-quality women avoid them, hear the case for why chivalry still matters, and get a load of the one simple (and now infamous) meeting with a woman that changed my life forever. Then we talk about the first date phrase women use that lets you know you just hit the jackpot, and secrets to dating success for men who are shorter than average. You'll get my thoughts on dating younger women, how to identify a quality woman without being influenced by what others think, and of course I wouldn't think of leaving you hanging with regard to either 'the nuclear weapon or attraction' or 'the most important 30 minutes in dating'. You're likely to get a kick out of how radically different the conversation is in this interview from the typical pick-up artist advice from that time period. It was somewhat revolutionary back then. There are lots of links in this episode, so it's best to head over to the show notes page and collect all the goodies. https://mountaintoppodcast.com

How Your Childhood Affects Your Manhood - MTP199

Podcast cover

Okay, this is going to be a sticky episode for many of you guys, as it contains plenty of potentially incendiary ideas that will rip the scabs off of old wounds. But it's all for the greater good, as you'll see. We'll uncover the types of traumas many of us endure during childhood, and shine the light on how it all affects us as grown men. According to my guest, psychotherapist Riana Milne, virtually all of us experience at least some of these traumatic experiences growing up, and I'm inclined to believe her. Having gotten to know Riana and her work, she has earned my genuine respect, as helping heal brokenness is arduous, messy work. So heads up, when Riana starts going over the top ten traumas kids tend to face, it really is going to stir the pot for many of us...starting with why there is more dysfunctional trauma going on now than in years past, and a greater number of psychopaths out there as well. Next, find out the nature of Jekyll and Hyde relationships and why they're so devastating. What is up with how people nowadays are so addicted to electronic devices and media? What impact does fatherhood in particular really have on child development? Are many of us completely oblivious to even having undergone trauma as kids? How damaging is mental illness to the futures of our children? Could a high need for sexual activity as an adult point to childhood trauma? How will kids going through the current COVID-19 global crisis be potentially affected as adults? And best of all, Riana reveals how to move from the blame and shame game toward a happier, more fulfilling life of great relationships with others.

Deep Into The Hero's Journey - MTP198

Over the past four years or so, the idea of The Hero's Journey has come up more and more often. My guest has built his entire practice around it, so for this episode we decided to go beyond the basic definitions and examples and do a deep dive. So for starters, what is it about this archetypal rendition of the classic hero story that is so riveting to us as men? Joseph Campbell's idea of powerful myth has fueled atheistic thought, but is that really the only logical perspective one can take? How does The Hero's Journey speak to universal truth not only in how we as humans attempt to comprehend the universe, but also in how we process the pattern of our own lives? And what's more, how does it all matter to YOU in becoming the best 'big four' man of character you can be? What does The Hero's Journey tell us about patience, virtue and the importance of mentorship? Why is it so important to leave home, only to ultimately return? How does The Hero's Journey narrative help us reconcile 'Imposter Syndrome'? Who is 'The Goddess' and how does she empower us to be better with women? Why is it that the most interesting part of The Hero's Journey comes right before the end? And how come 'hero' is such a loaded term, such that few accept being referred to as one? By the way, is there such thing as 'The Anti-Hero's Journey'? Be the hero in your own life...and in the lives of women everywhere. It all starts with a free 25-minute phone call with me.

How can we know the cause we're to become legendary for really is a good one? If we find ourselves angry, how do we harness that for a valid, significant legacy contribution to this world?

What is the stark difference between those who panic and those remain calm and lead? Hint: it's ridiculously simple and uncomplicated What is the secret to rising above potential feelings of inadequacy or even 'Imposter Syndrome' to lead in the midst of crisis? How about a real, practical way to literally be the voice of calm? Mark reveals the difference between smart soldiers and dead ones...in other words, why thousands of stormtroopers get shot in Star Wars when none of the main characters do. What do the most respected US presidents in recent history have in common? How can we build the habit of having 'field sense' during intense moments of crisis? How does the importance of fatherhood factor into all of this? Are attitudes even more contagious than COVID-19? How optimistic should we be? Get fired up for this essential conversation, gentlemen.

Beyond the catchy phrase, what exactly was my long-time friend Dr. Jed Diamond talking about when he coined the term 'Disconnection Syndrome'? Well for starters, you'll find out it's far more complex than people merely being separated from each other. It's a systemic issue that's been brewing for years now, and affects even our relationship with self. To kick off the conversation, Jed defines Disconnection Syndrome and explains how it's directly responsible for many of the ongoing social issues we see in today's world. Discover how this transcends the interpersonal to include how we interact with the world itself, as evidenced by some of the perhaps unexpected environmental effects of the current global pandemic. Meanwhile, what are some of the negative effects that purely electronic interaction has on our real, human abilities to connect? Are there subtle ways we've cheapened our sense of connection without even realizing it? Discover the surprising answers to these questions, along with the shocking ways our physical bodies and minds adapt. The most profound part of this episode comes when Jed details how we have become disconnected from our own identity as men. What happened there, why is it so rampant in today's world and how do we fix it? Overall, how can we get back to basics in the form of real, live human connection, and how might the pandemic crisis actually help us collectively to do that? Many of the men who do Laser Coaching with me or who are on the Ten-Plus strategic coaching program have been communicating with me in recent days about specific ideas and concerns in the midst of the current pandemic.

We can't just watch this unfold on television...we're LIVING it. Obviously, having our proverbial 'cheese moved' is inherently painful, especially when our relationships and our very livelihood are disrupted. Even though such disruption feels like an imminent threat, how do we not only survive but thrive in context? What if instead of losing our sense of humor we found it? How can we turn lemons into lemonade? And does having our world shaken up quite literally challenge us to reevaluate what is important and valuable to us? Meanwhile, were the survival and preparedness guys really on to something here? What can we expect to be different in our lives--and in the world writ large--once the 'all clear' signal is given? Can we look forward to a kinder, friendlier and perhaps even cleaner world to live in, or will people simply revert back to their respective comfort zones? Tune in for surprising predictions on how the state of dating and relating will be affected, along with practical ideas on how to take every good, valuable and positive lesson from this present crisis and run with it long term. Coincidentally, and perhaps surprisingly, Emily and I were already committed to disrupting our lives in the best way possible. These times have only illuminated how powerful that can be. The best news is YOU can join us in reaching for better, doing more and living with greater purpose AND fulfillment. Your open invitation can be found at http://www.mountaintoppodcast.com/unsettled.

Making Peace With Porn - MTP191

Podcast cover
Read more

I have to tip my hat to my guest, Matt Sinkovitz. Not only has he taken on the topic of how porn affects our lives, he's made it his primary gig. Right out of the gate, we address the concept of porn addiction. You'll appreciate Matt's candid take on this loaded topic. And with the global percentage of Internet traffic that's porn-related, could it be true that virtually everyone is watching it? In that context, how does a guy reconcile his deep feelings of shame and guilt over doing so? What are some of the particularly jarring and at times unexpected sources and consequences of that shame? Do most men really have schlongers as big as male porn stars? Are all porn actresses being exploited and/or trafficked? Isn't porn sex nothing like real-world sex anyway? What's the real-world difference between watching porn and satisfying oneself using pure imagination? Should getting a hot girlfriend or wife be a reasonable cure for the desire to watch porn? Is there a correlation between porn usage and other negative patterns in our lives...even at an unconscious level? So let's say we're successful in quitting porn...what real-world advantages can we expect to gain from that? Should we go full-on 'no fap'? How can we as men overcome hiding in the darkness to find the community and support necessary to succeed? And hold on a second...is porn really all bad? Is there a counterpoint that outlines some of the benefits of watching it? Listen and be both challenged and amazed.

The Side Hustle - MTP190

Podcast cover
Read more

Want to feel more alive, pursue your passions, make women love you and score some extra money on top of all else? Two words: side hustle. My guest Nick Loper is the man with the plan, and he joins us for the long-overdue deep dive on the subject. So what exactly is a side hustle? And how come nobody ever uses the term 'moonlighting' in the online entrepreneurial space? What does it take to let our ideas become reality and how does that make us feel more alive? Next, we talk about how to launch a side hustle that matters, including specific action steps. Why is starting a side biz like online dating? What is Nick's 'buy buttons theory'? And what if you can't seem to come up with any genius, original ideas? (As a bonus, this is also a ninja strategy for developing your stand-up comedy routine!) How does Nick's 'what sucks' exercise relate to all of this? As counter-intuitive as it sounds, how can building a new source of income actually increase your overall freedom as opposed to bogging you down with more busy work? Finally, what are the first steps you can take once you decide you're all in on starting a side hustle for yourself? If you haven't visited mountaintoppodcast.com in a while, you're missing out on free reports, the full Amazon store and your quick way to schedule a free 25-minute call with me.

Growing Up, Not Growing Old - MTP189

Podcast cover
Read more

Man, isn't it true how some people grow older, but they somehow never grow up? My guest is Josh Burnette, author of Adulting 101, and he has very specific theories as to how and why this happens. What's going on in our minds when we opt to avoid evolving into mature, responsible adults? Is what we're holding onto really better than what we gain by growing up? Obviously, being a child--or worse, a Neanderthal--isn't attractive to women at all, and it won't ever advance your career. Is there a 'bigger picture' to adulting that extends beyond our sense of self? What is more important to a true adult than mere happiness? What are some of the key life lessons that adults have figured out? And what does Josh do to motivate guys toward adulthood? What specific tips does he give? And who's going to be around for guys in real life to lead by example? What happened in Josh's life when he got married and became a father? Clearly, one must BE and adult before one can effectively raise kids, right? So wait a minute, does that all add up to a sobering reality that lots and lots of people skip marriage, swear off having kids and perhaps stay in that dead-end job out of a desire to avoid 'adulting' altogether? Sounds preposterous... All of this and more crisp, golden tenders of wisdom from the back of the house at Chick-Fil-A. Now you can schedule a 25-minute call with me directly, download free reports and more at www.mountaintoppodcast.com.
