Shogun Method: My Confession

Now before anything, I’ve got a confession to make. I’ve always been a junkie of what’s called the techniques invented by the so-called Pickup Artists, commonly known as PUAs. At first, I was really excited at learning these techniques because there were lots of reports online on how effective they were.

However, my excitement turned to disappointment when I tried some of these PUA techniques and failed. I thought it was my fault that I was not using the techniques right, but it turned out that I wasn’t the problem… you’ll find out why later in this article. 🙂

When I told my best buddy Matthew (who owns about this, he laughed. “Jon, man…” he said, “Forget about silly Pickup Artist tricks. Do yourself a favor and go find out about the Shogun Method instead.”

Curiosity Got The Better Of Me…

Intrigued, I went online and did a Google search. At first, I was somewhat skeptical as it looked just like another Pickup Artist program, but boy, was I wrong!

Truth be told: the Shogun Method gave me the shock of my lifetime. I was told that some of the techniques contained inside the Method were quite controversial, but nothing really prepared me for it. And so when I saw it for myself, it gave me a couple of sleepless nights. No exaggeration!

Shogun Method: To Attract Is To Enslave

The core of the Shogun Method is what termed as “Enslavement” strategies – these are used to segregate a woman and isolate her from the outside world. When used correctly, a woman will drift away separated from her family and circle of friends. At the same time, she will grow more attached to you emotionally. Soon, she will be sucked into a world consisting only you and her.

And so you’ll see how this is miles apart from the shallow Pickup Artist mumbo jumbo like “approach openers” and (shudder) “peacocking”. The Shogun Method will equip you with tools and techniques that will last a lifetime: simply because they are rooted in the (hard) science of female psychology. In other words, the Shogun Method is not just another pickup artist fad. This stuff is validated to work scientifically.

Also, the Shogun Method is unique because it’s not merely a collection of techniques – instead, it’s a step-by-step roadmap which clusters up the techniques according to which stage you’re at with your target.

The IRAE Model / Roadmap

The heart of the Shogun Method is the famed IRAE Model – a roadmap consisting of four distinct stages in seduction, namely Intrigue, Rapport, Attraction, and Enslavement. According to Derek Rake, the process of seduction is linear and sequential – first, you’ll need to Intrigue a woman so that she invests her attention in you. When you have captured get attention and interest, then you’ll use the opportunity to build Rapport with her. With sufficient Rapport, you can then make her feel Attracted to you. Finally, to keep her Attracted to you (for a lifetime if you want), then you’ll need to Enslave her.

Most guys make the mistake of not following this strict sequence, and according to Rake, this is the reason guys fail with women.

For example, if a guy attempts to build Rapport without first generating Intrigue, his efforts would fall flat because her short attention span would make her look for other things to capture her interest. Or, if a guy tries to Attract a woman without first generating Rapport, he would just come across as creepy and stalker-ish.

It all made a lot of sense to me personally, and it helped explained my failed attempts previously when it came to dating and attracting women.

Shogun Method

One Easy Step At A Time

In the Shogun Method, you’re only supposed to focus on one stage at a time, and mastering the techniques contained in that particular stage. To me, this helped me to avoid information overload and it gave me a clear mind on what next to do with a particular woman that I am interested in.

Now I can’t claim to be an expert at the Shogun Method, but I’ve gone through the complete IRAE cycle once, and so here’s what I think. The Enslavement stage is the most exciting (to me at least!) because that’s where you can wield the most power when you start to indoctrinate a woman and make her subservient to you.

Derek had warned not to use Enslavement techniques unnecessarily, but out of curiosity I had used one of its tactics (the Black Rose Sequence) on this girl I was going out with… and to say that it completely blew my mind would be an understatement. Well, not to mince my words, she had been quite a bitch to me, but now she’s as obedient to me as a puppy.

OK, to be fair to Derek and his clients, I can’t disclose what the Black Rose Sequence is in detail, but to summarize, you use it completely “erase” a woman’s self-identity, and install a new identity that’s completely subservient to you. In the Shogun Method, this new identity (“Persephone” in Shogun Method lexicon)  is completely under your control. It can indeed be quite sinister especially if you have malicious intentions.

The Final Warning You Should Take Heed Of

There’s one thing to watch out for, though: there’s no option to undo the effect of Enslavement as far as I know. If you’re not really serious about a woman, then subjecting her to the Shogun Method can be intolerably cruel.

For a presentation on the Shogun Method, click here. You’ll have to register with your email address, but it’ll all be worth it. You’ll have your eyes opened, I guarantee it.


  1. I saw the presentation and I think it was extremely well put together. I definitely want this. I really like it. The deal is amazing and I would buy it in a heartbeat!

  2. I’m gonna buy it!

  3. The reason this method works is because it teaches a man how to be a covert narcissist – which makes you a horrible person. You THINK she won’t eventually catch on, but she will. We’re teaching women now what to look for. You should probably learn to be a real man instead of a sneaky little weasel who wants to feel powerful.

      Rebecca, all the Shogun Method does is to level the playing field for the guys. You know it too well yourself that the game has been rigged in women’s favor for eons now. Who’s more manipulative, men or women?

      Real men push themselves to understand women psychology better. And for this, there’s nothing better than Shogun Method.

      Your mileage may vary of course.

  4. The Shogun Method seems like it’s a game changer. This could possibly be the end to the dreaded “friend zone” that so many guys get put in and can’t get out of. This method works, guys. Use it and you will never be friend-zoned again. Speaking from experience!

  5. I have the Shogun Method. Why publicize this and make the world know about it? If I were you, I’d just shut up about it and enjoy my success. Seriously.

  6. I find this both disturbing and incredibly arousing. I would never intentionally hurt a woman, so I’m deliberating on whether this is right for me. Frankly, it scares me a little. My main qustion is: how could this work on a woman that one only communicates with on the phone? The person I’m more than hot on lives in another country, but we speak on the phone. It’s a little complicated .Is it possible to use this programme in such a scenario ?

    Any advice wil be appreciated.

      William: I’ve never tried Shogun Method EXCLUSIVELY on the phone, so I don’t know. You’ll be hamstringing yourself for sure… if she’s worth it, why not go see her? If you master Shogun Method you’ll probably need one week face-to-face, tops.

      • Matt, thank you for your encouraging reply. I realise it’s a challenge. In fact I had a couple of email talks with the Man himself, Derek. He said it might be tricky, and he found my situation intriguing. he kindly offred to link up with me, if I jion the programme. I’ve been deliberating on whether to join, but I think I’ll be doing precisely this at the weekend.

        As for meeting her. I’m presently in Canada and she is about 5 thousand miles away ! There’s a high probability that I will meet her, but it’s not likely to be in the near future.

  7. Now, whatever happened to my typing? That’s the equivalent to my tongue-tied approach to women!

  8. Shogun Method is the bees knees. I do wish that they close up the membership soon, because I’d rather keep this knowledge secret among ourselves!

    • Brandon says:

      Not yet closed. I already found and joined the website (bought the product). Lucky me… I got in!

  9. You know they funny part about Rebecca’s comment, this whole technique is based on the nature of women so how are you going to stop it, so you found out about this your not going to change much the girls your warning aren’t going to listen to you they’ll eventually fall victim to their emotions women always do in one form or another even Rebecca will fall victim for it eventually she can keep saying that men are narcissistic and the technique is bat but deep down her nature says otherwise, you heard herself it works, I bet she wishes to be controlled.
