He admits that putting himself in such a public forum isn't the typical way to combat one's social fears.

It's called exposure therapy. It's really not that uncommon.

His problem isn't simply social anxiety but a really poor understanding of women in general.

Unfortunately, the kind of exposure therapy he's chosen is likely to only increase his anxiety. I think he needs to start off a little smaller and just try talking to women instead of getting one in his bed. Although I guess the "auction my virginity" ideas was intended to ensure he'd be getting a woman who really wanted to be with him, which would reduce his chances of being rejected--which would reduce his anxiety.

As an illustration of how bad he is at this, he learned Spanish to woo his female counterpart in the virginity auction, only to find out that she speaks Portugese.

Not only that, but the fact that the highest bid was from a man, that's gotta be a blow.
He should just go to a bar, get drunk and take whatever willing female left at closing time home. Yeah, she'll probably be pretty big, and might even have sideburns, but that's why we call it a slump buster.

The "slump buster" idea only works for a guy who has a base level of confidence and self-esteem when it comes to women. This guy ain't likely to have that.

I don't understand how some men have so much trouble obtaining sex. Just go talk to women until one agrees to fark you. If you fear rejection to much to approach, just learn to be a misogynist and you won't care anymore.

Go out a handful of times with the express intent of finding a woman to stick your cock in and it WILL happen, and it will get easier every time.

Migliorini was allegedly offered $780,000 for her virginity by a Japanese businessman known only as "Natsu," but Stepanov was only offer a paltry $2,600

"So in the same vein, we here at HuffPo decided to accompany this article about him with a slideshow containing 30+ raunchy pictures of her."

The problem with farking a 24 year old virgan is once you break in the ass you own it. And no matter how much you ignore them they wont leave you alone

He could find a chat room and pretend to be 12 and curious, that seems to get a lot of takers.

Hell, I'm terrible at understanding women and I'm no male model (not even close), but yet my penis has ended up in the vaginal cavity of a fair number of okay to good looking women.

It's not rocket science meeting women, if it was, the human race would have died out a looooong time ago.

Pretty much by definition, any guy who truly has social anxiety concerning women and sex simply isn't going to be able to "learn to be a misogynist". Some people just inherently aren't self-absorbed enough to stop caring what other people think of them.

Wow.  I find the thought of having sex with a woman repulsive, and at times go out of my way to make sure that any chick that's putting the moves on me knows she's barking up the wrong tree.  There have been times when I was fending off several potential female suitors in the same night.  And while I know I'm not a hideous cave troll in the looks and personality department, I'm also far from being a Casanova.  I wonder if some folks are simply trying too hard.  At some point, it's gotta become a mental thing ... you get so focused on "that" and you end up thinking about nothing but "that" so you blow your chances at getting it, no pun intended.  Okay, little pun.  Little pun.

Just take this guy's attitude:

Lemmy: "It's like the saying: I've never gone to bed with an ugly chick, but I've woken up with a few. Our lighting guy has a funny one. There were these two chicks who followed us around in Germany. We called them the Monsters of Rock. One of them had three teeth, the other one was bald, and they were both fat. One night he called one of them, desperate and drunk, and he went to bed with her. When he woke up he hid in the bathroom until she'd gone."

It just may have to start this way. Yes, we know he's not Lemmy, but he may have to start slowly.

1440 Pennyworth Lane, 66 Broad Street Suite #8, 419 West Delago Lane ....

But seriously, if you're out and about, particularly if alcohol is involved, it's not uncommon for women to flirt or even hit on you.  Sure I'm mostly oblivious to it and it's waaaaay more subtle than when men flirt.  Usually it's confined to parties and bars, things like that.  But, every once in awhile, shiat goes down out in the open world, grocery store seems to be pretty common, mall food court, places like that.

Coming from someone who once had this problem in my teens I can tell you that 90% of it has to do with setting. I was good looking and a great conversationalist but for some reason girls just didn't knock on my door and throw themselves at me while playing WoW. Imagine that. Meanwhile you, apparently gay as the sun is bright, had the opposite problem because you were socializing. I'm willing to bet this Russian guy doesn't have a large circle of friends and in his typical weekend the only action he's getting is in his right arm.

I promise to lash myself 50 times for saying this, but yes, there are some people who are like cats.  They're used to getting attention from members of the opposite sex, so when there's one that seems disinterested, that's who they're drawn to.

Lemme take a stab at why you likely find the op-sex flitting about near you.

1. You are employed (and that shows in subtle ways, believe it or not).
2. You do NOT dress like an utter slob or go about smelling like you just came back from the gym or farm.
3. Your vocabulary is that of a fairly well-spoken person.
4. You are not an obnoxious asshole in public.
5. Your lack of misogynistically and methodically hitting on women comes across as gentlemanly and polite.

Many would be shocked, shocked I say, at how far behaving like a decently mannered man with reasonable looks, and an affable way about you will get you.  The 'bad boys' might get the wild ones, but they tend to also be the ones that you wake up and find staring at you while you were asleep and start in right away with 'teh crazee', talking about how you should get matching tattoos and piercings.
And you know the rule about sticking it in crazy. It always ends in tears (or worse).

To the guy whom seduction it comes easy: Congratulations you're normal. Some of the people with social anxiety got that way because they are autistic and don't even know it. I was diagnosed last year at 48, I learned I have Asperger syndrome. It explained so farking much about my life, like the fact that I am face blind and socially inept. I tried the exposure method to cure my social anxiety, I worked technical support for 3 years, 3 years throwing up nearly every morning before going to work or once I was there. I quit last year but now I have trouble leaving home and going further than the corner store and hearing the phone ring or the doorbell make me panic until I know who it is. I am seeing a doctor now but I wish I knew why I was different when I was young.

The funny thing is that my first year teacher figured that there was something wrong with me but my parents disregarded her because I was very smart. Most people had never heard of autism back then.

I've crushed on some really nerdy guys (including the WoW player type), but I was also shy.  Had they made any move at all, ... And thus why social anxiety results in no one getting laid.

i love these threads.  i get to tell everyone that i'm still a virgin at age 34 now.  i have completely given up ever trying to meet a woman or have a normal girlfriend.  i don't even care about sex at this point, i'm too old to lose my virginity.  i would just like to have a nice conversation with a woman once in awhile.  i don't know, maybe do something crazy, like holding hands.that would be a nice change of pace.

right now i'm talking with a nice lady from ukraine that i met on a mail order bride website.  she lives 5000 miles away and we've only communicated by email, but its still the most intimate and rewarding relationship i've ever had with a woman.
