What is Dark Masculinity?

Dark masculinity is a facet of the very complex thing called heteronormative cisgendered patriarch. Also called “man.”

It is NOT toxic masculinity. That is a term created to deceive you and make you a weak loser. Dark masculinity is a part of you that you have been neglecting for long. And the exact reason why you aren’t happy.

I will tell you what it really is and why none of it is really “dark.”

Men are from Mars

The Roman God of War and Masculinity: Mars.

In Roman mythology, Mars was the God of War and Masculinity.

Notice something? War, Masculinity, and God mentioned in one sentence.

He is the one who gave men the masculine symbol ♂️

I can already see the neurons activating in your brain. The very definition of masculinity is war. You get that feeling that you enjoy being godlike. Creating, ruling, dominating. You like war, be it fighting physically or fighting teams in sports, in videogames and the like. You like war movies because it features “real” men. Why are there never weak men in war movies?

Because they die.

The foundation of man is survival.

We were placed on this Earth to survive. To keep our tribe alive. Our kids, the women. Our legacy. For this, we had to learn how to fight. Fight other men. Fight animals. Fight nature.

Earth is a magnificently beautiful planet. Yet, it is constantly trying to kill us.

Gravity is constantly pulling on your muscles, trying to pull you to the ground. We cannot survive forever on this planet. The longer we are here, the closer we get to death. We have a ton of natural predators out there if it comes to pure brute strength.

Conflict is the natural state of everything in the universe.

And us men were designed to revel in this fight. Our bodies are built for fighting. For surviving. A woman’s body is not. On average, a woman is weaker than a man by every margin you apply. When she gets pregnant, this is amplified. She virtually needs protection for nine months.

Evolution does not care for your ideologies.

Why society calls it dark masculinity

Society stigmatised parts of your masculinity.

Now, being a war machine and a god has implications.

You like to lead people. Rule over them. Tell them what to do. You can snap necks at will. All of it results in one thing: ruthless power.

Mankind has always fought over power.

This is how wars started, families were built or torn down, civilizations created and razed. This is why you want a 700 horsepower Lamborghini. This is why men do the Rodeo. To control something so powerful it can kill you.

It is this lust to control the uncontrollable.

It resigns within any man.

It yields the feeling of greatness. This drive for power is so strong that we do everything to gain it. Despite the evidence, it might kill us. This is why men of the past walked into the unknown and took lands. To overpower.

This is why you want a submissive woman. To overpower her.

And this is what is considered “dark.”

Because we live in a feminized society. In the Unchained Man, I explore this topic deeper. The feminine works on emotions and empathy. A man going to war is not empathetic. He is ruthless and brutally determined.

This vast difference in goals is what trenched common masculine traits in a dark light.

Evolutionary, there is nothing good or bad about any of your traits. They just make you a man. There is nothing to judge.

However, a society that is fully geared towards the feminine, sees everything that makes a man as dark or evil.

Because the feminine and the masculine are polar opposites.

Turning men into women

Old man smoking a cigar indoors. Mafia concept. Stylish male in his cabinet. Bearded man.
This kind of traditional man is not sought out by our corrupt society.

Society told you for years that men and women are the same and that society created the genders. A social construct. Therefore, you can be genderfluid or genderless.

No, you can’t.

While women can embody masculine traits, and men can embody feminine traits, they are still that. The respective traits of said sex.

The more you try to alleviate the polarity between the genders, the more you lose the tension. Therefore, you will have sexless marriages and you lose everything that is exciting about dealing with the other gender.

While this might not have been the goal of the people who coined the term “toxic masculinity,” it is the result. Feminized men don’t stand up for what is right.

They don’t fight for what is right. They don’t face their own wives when they throw bullshit. They don’t even discipline their kids. They have no spine. No grit. No Godlike powers to rule.

Because they fell for the veils of deception that anything within their masculinity is bad, dark, or toxic.

As a result, the opposites are no longer opposite. The sexes came closer together and lost their tension, turning them into boring relationships that just drag along.

Masculine traits will always be masculine traits, no matter what society calls them. They are ingrained within you. They will never leave, they are never eradicated. These days, they are buried under tons of lies.

When you dig them up, you will finally feel whole. One with yourself and understanding your being as a man on this planet. Exactly what I have been teaching for years now.

Dark masculine traits

Men of the past embodied a lot of dark masculine traits. That’s what made them successful.

Remember that these aren’t actually “dark” or “toxic” in any way. I just use the term that is used everywhere for better understanding. For me, these are just “masculine traits.”

Things a “dark masculine” man likes to do:

  • Fight/War
  • Have sex with as many women as possible
  • Threesomes
  • Destroy societies and build them up anew
  • Create beauty
  • Control the outcomes of situations
  • Live completely independent, not bound to anyone or anything

In other words, a Man of the Dark. Versed in the dark side of himself and reality he is constantly bending it to his will.

What society taught you about dark masculinity

Naturally, what you learned in society is covered in veils of deception and thus irrelevant. And especially when it comes to toxic masculinity or dark masculinity, it is trenched in projection, fear, and power grabs.

Here is what society considers a dark masculine man:

  • Hits women and children
  • Is a tyrant
  • Likes to kill or punch people
  • Destroys everything out of spite
  • Abuses and manipulates people to his own benefit

The last one is ironic since that is exactly what the media does, more on that later.

Society will picture you as a blood-seeking berserk once you revel in your darker side. The truth is that the dark side of your manliness solely reveals tools for power.

Why men like threesomes and why men cheat

Why you always have this drive to have another woman…

Do you want to have threesomes? I know you do because the heavy amount of porn clips of that scenario are evidence.

Man likes to spread his seed as far and wide as possible. Most men would like to be Genghis Khan or Andrew Tate and lay hundreds of beautiful women.

This is stigmatized for a reason. Stability.

Here is where nuance plays a paramount role in understanding masculinity.

Promiscuity is bad for society as a whole. Polygamous societies tend to become very violent. All the great men will get the best women and multiple of them.

Left are the weaker males who get none or the “left-overs” like you get at 5 am in the club.

This inequality tends to build resentment and hate towards the successful men. (The same phenomenon is actually true for women. Beautiful women with lots of gentlemen callers are hated by the “not-so-lucky” women).

At some point, this built-up resentment lashes out in (civil) wars and violence.

At a grand scale, it would make sense to be with one woman, so everyone has his partner and society doesn’t burst into flames.

However, while this is true for the majority of people, it isn’t true for the exceptional. Them being exceptional by the literal meaning of the word, they will not settle. They want the best and the most. And they are the only ones who can get the best and the most.

This is where people have called me out for telling people how to get women because it promotes promiscuity. The reality is that most men will never achieve that. And only a handful of exceptional winners will. That message is for those men.

The drive in any man to lay as many women as possible never dies. This is why men cheat. This is why Kings had concubines. It is your basic nature.

The only reason many men don’t do that anymore is due to massively reduced Testosterone levels (and thus a decrease in masculine behavior) and the heavy legal repercussions you have to face these days.

Yet you have to ask yourself: If there were no social stigmas, no rules, and no implications of cheating or having a harem of women, would you do it?

If you could have sex with as many women as you would like, would you hold back?

You wouldn’t. Because this drive is deeply ingrained in you. The suppression of it is done by society.

The price of power

Tony Montana from the movie Scarface is a magnificent display of the dark traits.

Any sort of power inevitably comes with a portion of fear for the powerless.

This is natural because the more powerful part has the means to do good or bad things to the weaker part. He can elicit control to his own will. The mark of a powerful leader.

Fear is a tool that has been used for decades by the media to control you. The principle is exactly the same. The Media tells you a harmless virus will kill all of humanity and thus they direct your decisions and actions.

If you apply fear onto your wife that you might leave her if she doesn’t comply, you can control her decisions. Also called “dread” in the context of relationships.

And this is precisely why a feminized society doesn’t want you in power. Through fear, you can control others. And a good relationship has a small portion of fear in it. Your woman needs to be made aware every now and then that she can be gone at a moment’s notice.

Accept the brutal reality in this truth. Society is trying to suppress this fact because if men are aware of their power, they can use it to overthrow empires and stand up against governmental control.

If a man can’t even leave a bad marriage out of fear over the repercussions (alimony, etc) he won’t stand up against the government.

Beware of the power of the dark forces. Fear is a powerful tool and you need to use it scarcely. You don’t want to have a woman, friends, and peers who are literally afraid of you and what you might do to them. Fear is best used to remind people of what they are losing if they are a hindrance.

How to unleash your dark masculinity?

Fighting is THE best method to unleash your dark side.

Now that you understand the darker side of you and how it is being suppressed, I know exactly that you want to unleash more of it.

You will need to overcome yourself and limiting beliefs in your head. But most importantly, you have to mentally prepare for the backlash you will receive. You have to anticipate it, so it doesn’t come as a surprise.


After that, it comes down to regulating your hormones and engaging in traditional masculine activities I listed below.

The best way to understand and LIVE the dark side is by acting it out, bouncing it back and forth with other men. For this, I created the League of Shadows. A group of men, versed in the dark realities of life, achieving success, women, status.

Other than that, here are the important steps:

  • Increase Testosterone
    Testosterone is the manliness hormone and has been suppressed for decades. Soy, sugar, and estrogen-rich tap water reduce your manliness hormone. The logical fix to this is increasing it by working out, eating healthy, and supplementing.
  • Become comfortable with violence
    This will come naturally once your T levels rise, but it’s generally important for any man. Violence is a big part of a man’s life. Learn how to fight. It helps you protect yourself and your loved ones, and it will unleash your dark side. Click here to get the online lessons with which I learned to fight.
  • Discard guilt
    A man who revels in his dark masculinity is not guilty about anything. If you want threesomes, so be it. If you want 10 million dollars to buy “shallow” things, so be it. This is who you are and what you want. The only judgment that counts is your own.
  • Indulge in a Divine Purpose to become independent
    This is important so you are free of external validation. People will inevitably talk shit over your newfound self. As long as you are controlled by what other people think of you, you cannot independently do what you want. You have to be willing to throw it all (and everyone close) away if it doesn’t fit your new self.
  • Act on gut feeling
    If you act on gut feeling, you act out your soul. The result is that you act from your masculine core instead of your consciousness which has been redirected by indoctrinations.
    A simple example would be in sex. If you ravage your girl like you would want to do it, instead of trying to please her. Paradoxically, both of you will enjoy that more.

    This is not a shameless plug, it’s just free. In it, I laid out the brutal reality with clear instructions and how to navigate this dark world.

Dark masculinity is really just masculinity itself, stigmatized by a corrupt society.

These traits are considered dark because they help you to control. The world, people, and outcomes. This is why people are afraid of it. Any sort of power always comes with fear from the powerless.

Because they are at the mercy of your decisions.

However, those masculine traits don’t decide between you being a tyrant or a great leader. They just help you to lead.

If you rule with an Iron fist or lead by example is up to you.
