I am 33 years old and grew up in Maryland, USA. My birthday is on Flag Day, a national holiday.
After I graduated from the University of Maryland with a degree in microbiology, I began a career as an industrial microbiologist. A couple years later I started a local blog called DC Bachelor, and lived in constant paranoia that my employer would bust me for the sexist content. Eventually I changed the name to Roosh V because I no longer cared about getting fired.
Six years into my career, and a little over two years after I started DC Bachelor, I quit my job and finished my first book called Bang, a textbook for picking up girls and getting laid. Afterwards I spent six rough months in South America, which I detailed in my second book called A Dead Bat In Paraguay. I rested in the States for a year before returning to South America for thirteen months. I then finished my third book called Bang Colombia, about how to get laid in Colombia. Since then I’ve released several more titles while living in Europe, with the most popular being Day Bang, my day game manual. You can view all my books at BangGuides.com.
I’m active on Twitter and YouTube. Check out the “Recent Favorites” list on the right column for my best posts.
IN THE NEWS
Starting in 2011, I’ve been written about in the European media due to my Bang travel guides. The Icelandic gossip magazine DV wrote four stories about Bang Iceland (1, 2, 3, 4), with a writer from the Icelandic Review having a lot of “personal anger” towards its release. The book was talked about on Icelandic television and radio, including a live radio interview I did where I was asked if I was a “male slut.” Iceland’s largest feminist organization condemned it entirely.
Similar coverage occurred in Denmark after I released Don’t Bang Denmark. Danish gossip magazine Ekstra Bladet wrote five articles on the book (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) before it hit Danish television for a ten minute panel discussion on its merits and my hunt for “poosy paradise.” TV2 published point-counterpoint articles: Danish women are “angry and humorless” versus “feminine and sexy.” There was some sympathetic coverage towards the end, but hundreds of angry comments flooded my blog. Most said I was ugly and couldn’t handle “strong” Danish women.
Scandinavian rage followed me into other European countries. I was written about in Estonia before I even arrived in the country, leading to a semi-organized movement to get me deported and prevent the publication of an Estonian bang guide. After Bang Estonia was released, three more articles were published (1, 2, 3). Latvian media published two articles (1, 2).
The reaction was much stronger in Lithuania, where my book received blanket coverage. Articles were written in Lithuania’s biggest news site, Cosmo magazine, and five others (1, 2, 3, 4, 5). Many comments threatened me with death if I were to ever return. For fun I pranked the media with a bogus interview that made Lithuanians froth even more.
In America, I was placed on a “misogyny” list by the Southern Poverty Law Center in their quarterly Intelligence Report, which usually reports on domestic terrorism and neo-Nazi groups. The move was condemned by Reason, Business Insider, and the National Review, prompting the SPLC to partially retract their list by stating those on it are not members of a “hate group.” The Huffington Post wrote an article about my inclusion, along with the Danish media.
My book Bang Colombia randomly exploded in the Colombian media two years after it was originally released. It was criticized in El Pais, Publimetro, Terra, Vanguardia, La Region, Semana, and El Liberal, among others. Not long after, I was mentioned in a critical Norwegian article about the rise of the manosphere.
I’m currently in Europe, still searching for poosy paradise. Due to my work, I’ve been recognized in nine countries.
