My problem is, that I am a pick-up artist but also a teacher. However, I'd like to share my knowledge on how to meet women via e.g. YouTube.

I do not want to teach how to manipulate women into bed, but how to improve oneself to be less anxious to meet women. How to approach, behave during dates, how to text them. What mistakes one should avoid, etc.

I fear that it would negatively impact my reputation as a school teacher.

How can I share some of my passions in my personal life in a way which does not negatively impact my professional reputation?

    If you are a teacher and you decide to do this, do not use any women in the videos who are in any way close to being underage.

    @JimG. I think "how do I do a controversial hobby without getting fired because of it" is on-topic here. Mar 3, 2015 at 16:04
  • There are some jobs that hold a person to different ethical, moral (and legal) standards. In most countries, being a teacher is one of those jobs. The old adage of "if it feels wrong, it probably is" applies here. The 2 areas just don't seem compatible. Mar 5, 2015 at 15:45

I wouldn't advise posting the videos, it probably will harm your career. There are a lot of people with an axe to grind against PUA, as you can probably just by looking at some of the other answers.

I'm not saying there is anything wrong with PUA, it can be seen as manipulation, but then so can taking a woman on a date and buying her dinner. Personally I don't see one as being worse than the other. Unfortunately reason and fairness do not play a part in this. Mob justice is what will cost you your reputation and probably job and you can't reason with a mob, just don't make yourself a target to begin with.

I believe being a teacher is being one of the visible figure of the society. As much as being a mayor, priest, celebrity, etc. As a visible figure of the society, EVERYTHING public will be connected to your job.

I would suggest therefore to think in term of public relation for anything you would do in public (and in a certain extend in private).

To answer your question, with your particular case, I think it's a no go.


You could try concealing your identity, but wearing a mask and using a voice changer would probably degrade anything you tried to creepy. If you only used a pseudonym parents/students/peers would be readily able to recognize you; with likely disastrous affects to your career.
