Why did you get in the seduction community?
I had read the game after just leaving a long relationship. The whole time I was reading it I was thinking “This is ridiculous, you can do this! You would be AMAZING at this. You have been doing this shit since you were a kid!” See, I was an actor at the time and I sort of took this whole “acting” mentality to it in regards to the scripted routines and body language. I figured that all I needed to be the best PUA, was to be the best actor! This of course is the completely wrong way to look at it, and I realize that now, but acting did help me “fake” my social skills early on while I was still learning, and a lot of acting principles such as tonality, subtext and creating presence are still extremely relevant to attraction. But to answer your question, I got involved in the seduction community because I *knew* I would be amazing at it. I wasn’t at first, in fact I was downright terrible when I started, but I never lost that confidence and thats what kept pushing me forward.
Why did you choose the name Cajun?
I had made a documentary on my Acadian heritage while I was in Film school. Cajun, if you didn’t know, is actually a mispronunciation of the word “Acadian”. Anyways, the film won some awards so from that point on everyone started calling me “That Cajun guy” and that eventually got shortened to “Cajun”.
What is your life like now with women?
Its great! I have lots of really great women in my life. I actually only realized a few weeks ago how lucky I am. I was really sick for a couple days and, after passing out for the better portion of a day, awoke to find 5 different messages on my phone from female friends asking me If I was ok and wanting to come over and take care of me. It was pretty sweet, and they did end up coming over and bringing soup and what not. My parties always rock too because the ratio of girls to guys is always at least 2 to 1, so im pretty popular with the guys as well haha.
What is one of your favorite routines?
The questions game. It’s an old one but I customized it and it makes dates go AMAZINGLY well. I’ve started using it in the bar too, although I condensed it. Works just as well. I hope you don’t mind me not explaining it, as I save it for my bootcamps and 1on1s, sorry for dangling the carrot haha!
Do you use props? If so, what would be the one that gets the most reaction?
No, not really. I mean, I wear a lot of cool clothes and sunglasses and stuff but nothing I would call a “prop”. I really like my belt buckle and of course any of my vintage LED ZEPPELIN T-shirts. My house has lots of cool stuff in it too, including a murderous black kitten named Rod Stewart.
Can you relate one of your favorite field reports?
Actually a really funny one happened this past weekend in New York. Me and Tenmagnet (his interview) have this game called “Jaggering” where we make each other dance like Mick Jagger whenever you say “Do your best Jagger!”. The thing is, you can call someone out to do it at any time, no matter what, and if you don’t then you have to take a shot of liquid kryptonite, which is actually just your most feared liquor (I got a shot of dry vermouth! *vomit*)
Anyways, after forcing each other to Jagger ourselves silly while talking to girls all night, I ended up going home with this actress who lived right downtown. While we were making out on her bed I get a text from Tenmagnet that says “Do your best Jagger!” so without hesitation I got up and started Jaggering all around her bed, doing the rooster walk, the lip seal, the clap, all the signature moves while humming “miss you”. Completely baffled, she was like “What the fuck are you doing!?” I just laughed, told her it was my mating dance, and then went back to business. Tenmagnet got a kick out of that when I told him the next day haha.
You won Keys to the VIP. Can you explain your experience with that?
Yeah that was actually a lot of fun. They had contacted me after finding out I was a working PUA in Toronto. I actually couldn’t even do the show at first because I was busy with the seminars, so I recommended my cousin who had helped out at a couple seminars and was a student of the game himself. In the end I was actually free the weekend of the shoot and I went along as moral support for my cousin. During the shoot they realized that the challenger just wasn’t working on camera so they asked me to go on and “Save the show” At that point there was only about 90 mins left before the bar closed so I got mic’d up and did the challenges as fast as I could. At first I thought that the cameras were always on me so I did a set before they found me in the crowd with the Cameras and ended up having the girls arguing over who gets to give me their number. The producer could hear everything and started yelling at the guys over the radio to get the camera on me haha, after that they always made sure the camera was on me.
With most of your students, what is there biggest sticking point?
Body language, hands down. If a student has that down then everything else is a breeze. Its also one of the hardest things to teach, not because its hard to demonstrate or implement, but because it takes a while to get comfortable with changing the way your body naturally moves. It’s usually what I spend the most time correcting on my 1on1s.
What methods have you used to become comfortable with women?
I actually try not to read anything in the “community” unless its something that I’ve already thought about and tried to master myself, mostly because I try to get my own feel for how things should work by my own field experience. Magic Bullets however makes up the core of what I believe is “essential” with regards to reading material for beginners. It gives great insight into just about every subject that has to do with getting the women you want. It’s the same model I used to get good and it’s written incredibly well, Savoy’s style is refreshing compared to a lot of the other stuff out there, so it’s very easy to read.
Which pick up artists have inspired you the most?
Tenmagnet is hands down the guy whom I’ve learned the most from. Neil Strauss got me into the whole thing from reading his book, so I suppose he should be mentioned. TD’s earlier posts gave me some insight into how valuable taking an analytical approach could be, which helped me tremendously as I was learning. Other than them, I suppose Errol Flynn would be my favourite classical pick-up artist, I based my moustache off his for a while haha.
What did you learn from them?
Tenmagnet taught me the basis for nearly everything I know. Every time I needed an answer he would have it, even to this day, I still ask him for advice, and he always delivers. His style was also a great one to base mine off of because it was so natural, as mine was also, so I think that affected the speed at which I learned, everything he taught me came so easy since it fit in so perfectly with my personality.
