The Venusian Arts Handbook was published in 2005, written by “Mystery” (Erik von Markovik). Mystery is also known for The Mystery Method: How to Get Beautiful Women into Bed (with joint copyright owner Savoy of Love Systems), the Venusian Arts Revelation, and the Venusian Arts Forum. For a long time Mystery’s Venusian Handbook, the most popular of the Venusian Arts books, was the most widely used product in the seduction community, and because it was one of the first books dealing with dating science, some people even used to refer to pick up as “the Venusian Arts.” But, that was 2005 and we’ve come a long way since then. The Venusian ways are now the old ways, and what was once called “arts” then is proven science now. With pick up artists appearing on television shows and offering live training around the world, we’ve moved past the mystical-sounding Venusian into the firm logic of Love Systems.
