The Blue Riders' Club
The Blue Riders Club is based on a real-life group of philogynists living in modern day Europe who took their name from Der Blaue Reiter, an expressionist art movement originating in Germany in 1911. The story begins with this posse of hand picked Lotharios being invited to Paris by a wealthy nightclub owner for an all expenses paid mystery rendezvous. As they arrive at the chosen location, each character is introduced to the reader, and it is revealed that this dirty dozen of debauchery is being assembled to help write a 21st century seduction manual to be presented to each of their sons on the occasion of their 21st birthday. The book is the product of these brainstorming sessions and is an Art of War meets Kama Sutra style bible of seduction. The manuscript blends the philosophical musings of Sophie's World, the humor of Sex and the City, and the sexual candour of The Bride Stripped Bare. It is a boys' own literary rebuttal to the multi-million copy bestseller The Rules in a unique mix of the narrative and how to genres, loaded with risque humor. Each chapter is introduced with a transcript recorded during the meetings in a swanky Parisian bar. The dialogues are in the tradition of Plato's Republic however the subject matter and quirky verbal exchanges are more reminiscent of Pulp Fiction or Reservoir Dogs. These humorous slices of real life banter between the characters serve as a relevant prelude to the theme of each chapter and make reference to famous artists, writers and scientists throughout history. They also explore the thoughts of great philosophers in relation to sex, and the characters' interpretation of their ideas. Within each chapter, the How to element offers the layman practical strategies for meeting, attracting and bedding women successfully. Included are detailed methods of approaching and seducing women in any situation, the philosophies and psychology of attraction, proven tactics for dating, descriptions of sexual techniques and the makeshift sexual positions, and a comprehensive guide to specific nightclubs around the world. In addition to this eclectic instruction, each player delivers witty personalized tips and opinions on chosen topics to cover all the possible scenarios a girl-crazy reader may encounter.
