Watch on YouTube: Hypnotica – Confidence, Sex, & Spirituality | Becoming FEARLESS

Eric Von Sydow is better known as “Hypnotica” from the bestselling pickup artist (PUA) novel, “The Game,” by Neil Strauss, but Sydow doesn’t identify as a PUA – He’s known as the “Inner Game Guru” because he’s a world-class expert at helping men become confident from the inside out.

In this episode of Becoming FEARLESS, Sydow gives us a very intimate look inside one of his San Diego homes, his life, his personal development and explorations, and his philosophies and teachings.

The author of “Metawhore” has constantly gone against the grain in his life and his teachings – breaking free from social barriers and shame. One aspect: Sydow lives a polysexual lifestyle – living with two women in two houses across the street from each other. (Though he’s now converting one house to be used primarily for bootcamps.) He drives a Prius, doesn’t eat meat and emphasizes nutrition above all else…and he also owns a strip club. And Sydow still isn’t above side gigs like driving party busses if it serves his goals and vision.
