New edition just published! Focusing on rape culture.

In their first interview since they became known for blogging and podcasting their sexual exploits, Jared Rutledge and Jacob Owens of Asheville, North Carolina — owners of Waking Life Expresso — tell the story of what they did, why they did it, and reveal the truth about the “Manosphere,” the “Red Pill” subculture and PUA (pickup artist) culture.

They began by looking for information about polyamory (conscious, responsible nonmonogamy), but Google searches led them to the New York Times bestselling book The Game by Neil Strauss.

Suddenly finding success using these dating and seduction techniques, they began tweeting, podcasting and blogging their experiences. Listen to their story in this Planet Waves FM exclusive interview.
