What did you love best about The Possibility of Sex?
In Alan's first audiobook, he highlighted the weaknesses of men's behavior toward women, and he explained just how dishonest and manipulative men can be toward women. In his second audiobook, he turns the tables and describes in detail how dishonest, misleading and manipulative women can be toward men. Being a woman myself, I know firsthand that there are really good women looking for a good man, and there are really scandalous women out here looking to take advantage of naive, unsuspecting men.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Possibility of Sex?
Alan points out that in the same way many men will 'pretend' to want nothing more than platonic friendship from a woman, when in reality they want to have sex with that woman, many women do just the opposite. They will pretend like have an interest in having sex with a man (either in the context of relationship or casually), but in reality, they just want to collect a high number of male platonic friends. I believe if a woman only wants to be 'just friends' with a man, she should let a man know that from the very beginning.
What does Alan Roger Currie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Just like Alan's first audiobook, Mode One, my only minor criticism would be that he uses quite a bit of X-rated language and profanity (but I am used to it now!). My compliment for Alan is that he never minces words or holds back on telling the truth about both men's behavior and women's behavior as it relates to dating and relationships. He is a bold truth-teller. I do not think men or women under the age of 17 should be listening to Alan's audiobooks though.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Like Alan's first audiobook, most of the content is definitely geared toward educating men, but that said, it was also an enlightening and entertaining listen for me as a woman as well. If nothing else, it made me think more objectively about just how manipulative women can be with men. Most women I know have the tendency to only concentrate on the undesirable behavior of men, but the reality is, members of both sexes have strengths and weaknesses in their character and behavior.
Any additional comments?
Not only would I agree that the average man would be turned off by a woman who is a 'Timewaster,' a Gold Digger, a Man Thief, a Drama Queen, a Misandrist, or a Liar / Cheater, but I believe most good women also hate other women who fall into these categories as well!! (bad women make it more

Looking back to my late teens, I can pretty much say that my first romantically frustrating experience in life was exactly with a type of girl who was a Timewaster. I allowed both my time and money be wasted while going out with her only to find out later that she didn’t even want to kiss me or have sex with me when I tried escalating and, on top of that, with her words she was very vague and ambiguous, only offering me “the possibility of sex”. Back then I felt it was enough, and during my next call to her I just asked one question “When are we having sex?”. She kept playing head-games. I hung up on her and never pursued her company again in a romantic or sexual manner. It must have been my intuition that made me identify her as a “big time game player”.
Many years later I learned about Alan Roger Currie’s books. I decided to read all of them. And while reading to Alan’s original Kindle e-book “The possibility of sex”, I clearly remembered the time when I was hanging out with that girl: I was “hoping to get laid”, I was “courting” her because I thought (and I had been told many times) that girls need to be courted, and that every man is supposed to know how to court women in a right way. A question that comes up is this “What is left to us, men? What are we left with? With the hope that our courting will lead to a desirable result someday? With the possibility of sex?”
Questions like this really show that, instead of knowing the outdated (and often ineffective) ‘courting skills’, we should…we HAVE TO know how to weed out women who are there to waste our valuable time and our money. We should also be able to see through any manipulative head games women often play, whether it’s to test a guy or to pull his strings. And by weeding out such women (and let them deal with other men who are willing to accept this kind of behavior) we, actually, make room in our lives for sincere, genuine and loving female romantic and sexual companions…for a short encounter or for a happy long term relationship. And this is what Alan’s book is about! It is to give us, men, the ammunition to be these secure and strong men.
Even though I read the e-book Kindle version of “The possibility of sex”, I’ve enjoyed the audiobook ‘delivery’ more. Not only because I’m an auditory person, but also because I can feel the author’s passion and commitment to do his best to inspire us, men, to learn the difference between sincere and manipulative women. I once had an hour long video consultation with Alan and, more than half of the time we spent talking, he helped me identify Timewasters among women I was interested in. After the consultation I thought “I wish every man could have this kind of knowledge on his hands”. And here it is: 6+ hours of the author giving you a “personal consultation” and giving you the knowledge you will HARDLY ever get anywhere else (sincere women are usually not aware of all manipulative strategies, so they look surprised when you’re discussing it with them; manipulative women will usually give you the IMPRESSION that they don’t know what the heck you’re talking about..”Manipulation…huh?”).
Other than the 1st part of the book (the first part mostly focuses on the 4 types of Timewasters), I found particularly interesting the chapter on “Man thieves”: I’ve always thought women competing for the opportunity to win a guy over is a good thing, but, as it turns out, getting involved with a woman who “enjoys stealing other women’s men way too much” can be a really bad decision.
I would recommend this book to any man. And I’ve given advice to my friends on how to identify Timewasters and other No-Good women in their dating lives.

Very good book from one of only 2 recognised direct approach guys there are. I've met Alan in London 5 years ago and we talked over chicken wings in his flat in Notting Hill.

What did you like most about The Possibility of Sex?
Unlike "OOOh", if you had this in paperbook, you could easily and assuredly carry it about without raising too many eyebrows. Already a good start
What other book might you compare The Possibility of Sex to, and why?
Might only compare it to Mode One, only , in reality after reading this it would be good to check out "Anatomy of Female Power" in addition to "The Manipulated Man".
Which character – as performed by Alan Roger Currie – was your favourite?
Him explaining the story of females in the church who were losing their minds when they found they were unable to make men lose their minds. It reminds me of a female I overheard talking about "Maxi dresses" and how they make men go crazy, cunningly smirking as she made this remark which showcases how much power she might have over fragile males. This book is self defence
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Not all power is privilege
Any additional comments?
I would definitely ask every "easily excitable" male to purchase this book and in doing so, reclaim your being. I would strongly even suggest it is listening to alongside Amos Wilsons talk on Male Female relationships, for this, like Wartenberg, is about Power.
