Welcome to Seduction Initiatives™ (S.I.) – Baltimore Chapter

This website is the online presence of the Baltimore chapter of the Seduction Initiatives™ project. We are what the mainstream media call a “seduction lair” (Wikipedia description can be found here), and we congregate weekly here on Calvin Street to discuss the application of the techniques on love and relationships. We dedicate our lives to the pursuit of women – and generating attraction is our specialty. Collectively we have around 200 years of experience in dating, and currently our membership roster consists of about 27 motivated men (and three wing girls). We were founded in 2001 by –

  • Matthew “Cougar Hunter” Ganz (current chairman) – Baltimore native, UB graduate
  • Richard Lee (sergeant-at-arms)
  • Luke Rogers (coordinator 1 – food) – hails from Iowa; worked in Singapore
  • Kurt Kersey (coordinator 2 – events)
  • Damon Lee (law advisor) – JD from Michigan State

Membership is by invitation only. Find out more if you are eligible to join by sending an email to join@sibg.com. If your email bounces, it means that we are not accepting new members at the moment. Please try again later.

The Need For A Seduction Lair

Think of it as a “male support group“. We are here to help you get better at the art of dating and seducing women. Every guy deserves to have good, healthy relationships with the ladies. We are also “white hat”, which means that you will be learning mainly natural seduction techniques which are also emotionally healthy. Note that we also sometimes incorporate techniques from hypnosis such as Fractionation and Derek Rake’s “ENTICE / REPEL” technique for extra efficacy. If you are against the usage of these techniques then kindly exit this website immediately.

You Won’t Find Pictures Of Sexy Women Here

Unlike other “seduction blogs” out there, we do not objectify women with unappropriate pictures. We are not a porn site. On the other hand, we promote the usage of healthy and non-deceptive relationship techniques (although some of these can be seen as amoral to some).

SIBG’s External Relations

We rarely talk to the media because we want to keep our information as private as possible; however, you are welcome to use our Mini Guides which we also use internally – especially to newbies who are getting into the Game for the first time. Below is a list of essential guides which is on the reading list of every SIBG member:

  1. How To Pick Up Girls – the de facto guide on pickup, this is a complete “paint by the numbers” guide on how to approach and seduce women quickly, SIBG-style.
  2. Female Mind Control – discover flaws inside the female psychology that make a woman vulnerable to mind control and hypnosis-based seduction tactics.
  3. How To Seduce A Woman – SIBG’s de facto guide on seduction, this guide shows you how to tackle the attraction process from ground up. Beginner friendly.
  4. Shogun Method – written by Derek Rake, this is SIBG.com’s bible of seduction; essential reading.
  5. Female Psychology – to be successful with women, you must learn how a woman thinks.
  6. How To Manipulate A Woman’s Mind – a slightly “grey hat” guide on how to manipulate a woman’s mind and emotions. Warning: this may be offensive to some.
  7. The Ultimate Guide To Control And Domination – see the above. Not for the fainthearted or easily offended.
  8. How To Make Her Think About You – learn how to stick into a woman’s mind and occupy her thoughts throughout the day.
  9. Fractionation Seduction – Fractionation is the grand-daddy of all mind control based seduction techniques.
  10. How To Make Her Want You – also known as the “SIBG Seduction Method”; learn the techniques on how to increase your desirability in the eyes of women.
  11. Mind Games Women Play – learn how to beat women at their own (mind) games!

Even though we AVOID talking to the media, we can’t help it when TV stations, radio channels, newspapers and magazines pick up information from this site and do an independent review. The reviews on SIBG are NOT solicited, and have not been compensated in any way.

  7. If the girl I like walks with you without you really asking or suggesting
    it is that a
    sign? I mean I will be talking with her as we walk to her next class then
    once we are their she doesn’t peel off to go to the class or stop talking
    and say bye, so I just continue to walk around with her, at the same time
    there is a silent period and so I sit at a bench and she just stands next
    to me and listens to me and responds to my questions and comments, but
    completely forgets what she is or was supposed to be doing, so I reminder
    her and so I walk her back to her class but then she says bye before we get
    there and walks over to her friends. Is she just fuckin with me or am I not
    reading the signs? If so what do I do next?? Today I gave her her space and
    didn’t talk to her today but was in the same place as her sometimes, so I
    try not to notice or look at her but out of the corner of my eye I see her
    look back hearing my voice. I am confused on what to do next I mean I have
    looked at this site and done these techniques before but that was years
    ago, I had completely forgotten about this site until now. So i am here
    asking for help what do I do, Preferably Matt.

    Thanks, Ethan

  8. Here is an amazing story. This all took place over 45 days. I broke my rules and tolerated a girl standing me up (last minute cancellation) for our second date, why, because the first date went very well. So, unsurprisingly she saw that as an invitation to do it again, which of course, she did. And then like a true idiot guy in search of sex I tolerated it. I’m also ashamed to say that I let then let it happen a third time. I just kept on saying to myself, I’m getting closer, and I’ve already got so much time invested in these useless phone calls where all I do is listen and agree that I might as well stick around. The sex after all is just around the corner. Well, then the second date actually happens, and two hours into it she asks me if I would mind if she left with another guy who had already shown up to where we were at. It seems she called him to make this arrangement. o I’m thinking, are you f…ing serious? Apparently she was. So I let them go on there way without protest. And (other than me being utterly played) here is the truly funny part, she said she really hopes that her and I can get together again soon. So, a lesson to all guys, when the BS starts, stop it quickly because it will just get worse, women love head games and will get away with whatever they can. So, if you stand up for your self-respect you may lose your investment in the situation entirely, however you will not be throwing your valuable time into a worthless situation.

  9. Please how may I become a part of this lair?

  10. i must learn theses techniques to not only get better with women but to better myself, i find it shameful and frustrating not having the skills to talk to females i find attractive. i’m sick of being like this, i don’t live far from baltimore.

  11. Someone Random says

    What are the requirements to join this sites and become a member?

  12. Hi,

    There is a particular girl at my high school back home who I have a particular attraction to. I have not made any kind of move all year long, just sort of playing it cool. She happens to be the point guard for the women’s basketball team, while I am a shooting guard for the men’s team, so I saw quite a bit of her during basketball season.

    Also, her older brother is a really good friend of mine. That part is a bit awkward, but I haven’t said anything as of yet, and since he is going off to college next year, I figured I could let time work its magic.

    That said, I don’t want to just let the entire thing go. On Valentine’s Day, I left a rose on top of her viola case after school, and she does not yet know its source. That is about as much as I’ve done.

    If you could give me some advice as to how to go about achieving a meaningful relationship with this one particular girl, I would be a very happy camper.

    I’m down for any psychological, physical, mental, emotional tactics so long as it is ethical and does not demean the girl in question.

    There is a dance coming up in the next little while and since I go to a very small high school, while people do ask one another to the dance, I was wondering whether I should a) ask her to the dance, or b) given the fact that her brother is still at the school, whether I should go alone and let the dance take care of things.

    Also, with that in mind, any “dance” rules/tactics would be good to be reminded of.

    I read the bit about to letting the girl in question know that you’d be willing to drop everything for her, and that having your own priorities is very important. Both of us are very busy people.

    One thing that sets me apart from some other guys is that I have a particular aversion to obsessive texting, Snapchat, Instagram, Tinder, Twitter, and other social media sites. I don’t know if that counts as a plus or a minus but I figured it was worth mentioning.

    Thought I would try and reach out to you guys.


  13. Hello, this message is being addressed to SIBG. My name is Vira, I am a 29 year old single male and I in fact, have always been single throughout my entire life. For this reason, I have struggled with serious episodes of depression. As a direct result, I at one point, turned to substance abuse. I am no longer abusing substances, however, depression is still prominent in my life. I don’t know how to interact with women, and desperately need your guidance. You are my last resort. Please help, as I have not a single bad intention to harm anyone with the techniques you reveal. Any help would be so greatly appreciated. Thanks so much and God bless you…

  14. Ive been confused for a long time now and i want some experts’ opinion on the matter. Approx 2 months ago i met a girl and spent the whole day with her, asked for her number and kept in touch. Because of both our schedules, we didn’t get to meet each other, but kept talking via whatsapp and calls. We decided to meet two weeks ago and we did. Getting together wasnt easy but i still did, and we had a great time hanging out for approx 6 hours in the night, which ended up kissing (lots) She told me she’s happy i made it to her and its a shame were not living closer to each other. I considered that night a success. The next day however, she started ignoring my calls and messages, and i have no clue why. All the signs showed me that she’s intrested, and Im just extremely confused about it now.

    • look the possibilities are A she is using mind games with you. B she has found another man. C you did something to upset her like flirting with another without even knowing. D she got a new number. E be aware this is the most unlikely but she has hurt her self really badly and is in hospital but she would have called you so yeah but if you do see her again treat her like your queen but don’t be to needy ok.


  15. Cobrantula says

    Hi Everyone,
    I tried emailing and everything got bounced back. I’m 35 I’m less than a year into pickup and I want to improve. So far I’ve done over 100 daygame approaches. I want to get into nightgame, but I would like some wings to show me what I need to work on. I have no problem going out alone, but I am at the point where I can see the benefit of a wing. Cheers.


  16. hi. i’m 23 years old, fat, single since the day i was born, and if you ask me how i am, i’m just hangin’ in there with all the depression, frustration, and stress in life. i knew i needed help when i graduated high school and still don’t have a girlfriend. no one was there to support or guide me or boost my confidence i’m a single child, my mom and dad are overseas and haven’t seen them for almost a decade, atleast we can still bond through skype or facebook. i really hate when my mom asks if i have a girlfriend, all i could do is just lie, i know that they know that i’m lying, i just don’t want their pity. i’m scared i’m gonna be alone all my life, i just need someone to love and love me back. i need your guidance.


  17. Anthony Roberts says

    I want to join the website

  18. Is this place still active? Baltimore can’t be *that* small of a city. If anyone here still wants to want to partner up, email me. From there I’ll give you my real email address. I check it about once a week, so please be patient.

  19. I really hope SIBG is accepting applications. I am at my wit’s end even though I’ve made a lot of progress these past few years.

  20. My girlfriend and I have been together for about 4 years. Over 3 years officially. We’ve lived together for probably about 2+ years. She cheated on me recently. It hurt like hell. The worst pain ever. Things have been rough ever since. I love her so much. She wanted to get engaged. I have a ring hidden in my sock drawer. I have been waiting for the right time. I want to know what to do to have her be completely in love with me again. She used to do anything I asked. I would do anything she asked. We were completely devoted to one-another. I need that again. I don’t care that she gained weight (She’s only 150 or 160 now, but still…). I’m trying to get over her infidelities. There are still trust issues. I’m a wreck. I want her back so badly. We are laying in bed right now and she is asleep. Simply looking at her immediately reminds me of how much I care for her. But I still get angry with some of her current and past behavior. Reading some of the other messages on this site has made me see how truly lucky I am to have her. However, the pain I’ve gone through with her has hurt so much more than the pain I felt in the past from being lonely for years on end. I want to know some tricks to get her to obey me more. I don’t have any nefarious tendencies. I just want her to behave more like an adult. I don’t want her drinking and driving (the car I gave her). I don’t want her staying out late without me. I want her to start acting more like a wife. Almost like the tv shows you see from the 1950s. Any thoughts? I have always treated her like a princess. I’ve given her anything she’s ever wanted. I’ve done everything to keep her happy and safe. Sex has been non-existent for almost 2 months. It’s bad. I want her back. We are still together, but she seems more like a friend than a girlfriend. Sorry for rambling on so long. Thanks.

    • She’s playing mind games, with you buddy..scare her a little bit, exmple: say that you want a time to think about the relationship, then cease contact for a while this can intrigue her. When the times come use fractionation to her ( recall the happy time that you two are together, mix it with a sad story)

      • Eric Clapton's Strat says

        Can you teach me? I am super interested in psychology. The thing about Shogun Method is that it is entirely different from pickup artists. Very practical, and at the same time, scary as hell!

  21. OK so here’s the thing, I have a crush on a girl from my school. I’m sure you guys see situations like this a lot, but my issue is a bit different. This girl may a have a somewhat negative concept of me, there are a number of reason of that, all are relevant I’m sure, but it would take too long to type it.
    The girl has a boyfriend and I know Derek Rake’s boyfriend destroyer system would work, but it’s a bit daunting because I have approach anxiety issues. The thing is it possible to change someone’s perception of you, through other actions and behavior that shows sincerity and change?
    Also I am a Shogun Method, MKDELTA and Insider Labs member at DerekRakeHQ.
    So I ask questions there, but it takes them a while to reply.
    Also their site was down for a few days so I had some problems with talking to her, as I didn’t know what to say.

  22. I have read (and still reading) every inch of this website, and I’m really glad; I tried one of the ‘tricks’ here and it worked like magic, though I was too much of a wimp to get her number (bloody me!). I have a girlfriend, a long distance thing; how do I effectively apply the advices, tips and lessons here in a Long distance relationship?

  23. Ojay Jenkins says

    Hey Matt,
    I would like to hopefully attend a SIBG meeting or I was wondering if u guys do any type of classes that I can be apart of

  24. Anonymous person says

    I want to stay anonymous. But your website improved my dating life a lot. I did not even start the mastery classes and it gotten better. I’m an introvert and before this my life was painfully dry when it came to dating and now I have girls texting me non stop. Thank you a lot man.

  25. How can i join?

  26. SIBG.com saved my life. I’m now with the woman of my dreams, thanks to you.

  27. Would kindly enroll me to the group. Am ready to learn and have currently been doing lots of research.

  28. Yikes. Lots of men looking to get into a relationship the wrong way. Thankfully we avoid men like you who are on a site like this trying to manipulate a woman’s emotions and feelings. We can see you from a mile away. How about honesty and integrity. Now that’s hot!!!
