There’s a lot of overlap between Game and sales techniques. Many modern Game tactics are adaptations of older sales tricks, (and probably many sales tricks are adaptations of even older ancient seduction wisdom).
The Takeaway has an esteemed pedigree, useful for closing all sorts of deals, from the Oval Office to, well, the oval orifice.
[A] takeaway is the act of feigning disinterest in a woman for the purpose of increasing her attraction for you, and thus your likelihood of bedding her. This fake disinterest can be as simple as a backturn, or an unannounced abrupt exit from a conversation. Takeaways are the Swiss Army knives of seduction, as they can be used at almost any point during the pickup, with equal effectiveness. For instance, a takeaway can set the right tempo early on by making a girl chase you for conversation instead of the other way around, or a takeaway can be employed during foreplay to get a girl to drop her last minute resistance to sex.

UNWITTING GIRL: I’m having a really good time.
DEVIOUS YOU: Me too. I’d like to have a drink with you back at my place, but…
UNWITTING GIRL: What?
DEVIOUS YOU: I dunno. I’m trying to turn over a new leaf. I think it means a lot more when things aren’t rushed. Maybe wait a little. You’re the kind of girl I want to take it slow with. Call me crazy, but that’s how I see it now.
Now after this, most likely she will say “Aw that’s so nice” and agree with you. Then you will be left asking yourself, “Hey, I thought this was supposed to work as advertised? She just called my bluff!” Settle down, Anakin. This takeaway works it’s magic on a delayed cycle. Continue the date as usual, and invite her over to your place anyhow. You won’t need an excuse because you’ve already told her nothing will happen. What you’ll notice instead is an increase in her compliance that you would not normally have gotten. Though you “confessed” only hours earlier, in so many words, that you wanted to wait for sex, she will find herself inexplicably moving things faster in the direction of your hidden agenda. The phony virtue takeaway has preemptively disarmed her anti-slut defense. She will rationalize that you are not forcing her to do anything because you’re “not that kind of guy”, and your road to sex will suffer fewer impediments.
You might be surprised to learn who else uses Game:
As Jay Five (aka Cinco Jotas, Twatter handle @JayFivekiller) explains, Trump “takeaway closed America into making him president”. It was evident in last week’s masterful push-pull seduction ploy that Trump unloaded on the voters and the media when he “softened” his anti-immigration stance in the weeks leading up to his meeting the White Mexican el presidente and then delivering a fire and brimstone speech in Arizona that recapitulated his best-of immigration restriction hits.
Trump just pulled a classic sales technique on Mr. and Mrs. America. It’s called the Take Away Close. […]
Starting a couple weeks ago, Trump began to take away his original offer.
“Oh, well, maybe what you really want Mr. & Mrs. America is our cut-rate, guaranteed-porous Virtual Wall 2000. And maybe I can package that up with some sort of tax-scheme amnesty.”
Those of us who’ve already committed based on the original offer, start to flip our s**t. And the people who wanted Wall-MAGA, but couldn’t commit because of price, or whatever, have an emotional reaction. Now, THEY REALLY WANT WALL-MAGA!! They’re disappointed. It seems like it’s not available anymore. And, just like that, there’s a s**t-ton of emotional energy around the Trump campaign, most of it negative, and it’s building. Ann Coulter is pissed off. Fash the Nation is black pilled. We’re grumbling and Trump is waffling. All eyes are on Trump. What’s he going to do? [..’]
Suddenly, in a spectacular coup, Trump overcomes the biggest objection (“Trump is too unstable to be president”) and adds more value to the original offer.
“You were worried that I wasn’t Presidential? Watch this… I’m not just giving you Wall-MAGA. I’m deporting the criminal aliens on day one. First hour in office.”
I wonder what Pleasureman thinks of the idea that our man Trump uses Game — the very same Game that degenerate PUAs have been teaching for years — to seduce the voters?
Heh, I say. (I rib because I love)
