This PUA notion that as a man (irrespective of what you look like), that you can talk your way into a woman's pants by using PUA quackery is totally ridiculous. When you meet a woman for the first time (especially in a club/bar environment), the first thing she sees is your looks, and women being the shallow, superficial creatures they are (in spite of their phony denials), make snap judgements based on your looks, and if she does not like what she sees, IT'S GAME OVER, LIGHTS OUT. I have a good looking slayer friend, and I have seen how women swoon over him, just because of his looks, female body language is not to hard to read, and it's so fucking obvious when a woman is attracted to a man, and only a fucking social retard fails to see that.
The terms "Pick Up Artist" and "good with women", are both ridiculous and meaningless for the simple reason that picking up women is NOT A SKILL, women choose you, you don't choose them, and the more accurate term for being "good with women", is being "lucky with women", lucky you were born with the good genes and race that women find attractive.

I'm not really disagreeing with what you said, but I want to add that it takes more than just a base level of attraction to get a girl to go home with you. There's been numerous times when i've approached a girl in a bar and get a very warm welcome from her, only to have it turn into awkward silences because I was boring to talk too. Having a charismatic and friendly personality is incredibly important for sleeping with lots of women. At least for anyone not in the 9 and up range. And I think certain parts of PUA can help in improving those areas of a persons personality.
