I am Neil Strauss. I wrote NYT best-selling books about pickup artists, Motley Crue, and Marilyn Manson, and ended up in sex addiction rehab after my book The Game. AMA!
First off, here's verification (and my friend Rico's stomach).
Secondly, here are some things we can discuss:
Big relationship questions: a. Monogamy and consensual non-monogamy? b. Can I really be with someone forever? c. Is there such a thing as the one, and how do I know? d. How do you keep passion and love from fading? e. Why do people cheat?
Writing, and any questions about writing books and journalism, or my work at The New York Times or Rolling Stone.
Any of my books, from the first (Marilyn Manson: The Long Hard Road Out of Hell) to the most recent (The Truth: An Uncomfortable Book About Relationships)
And of course, the one book that I wrote ten years ago and won't go away, in all the best and worst ways: The Game
UPDATE 3:50 PM: Hopping off now. Great questions. Will check back in later. Will also jump into a certain subreddit afterward to answer some of the questions I saw there about these subjects. Thanks to all who participated.
