Author of 'The Game', Neil Strauss: Sex Addict to Faithful Married Life: Girlfriend-Turned-Wife and Son
Neil Strauss is best known as an author of his best-selling book The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artist where he describes his experiences in the seduction community to become a "pick-up artist."
“Men are not dogs. We merely think we are and, on occasion, act as if we are. But, by believing in our nobler nature, women have the amazing power to inspire us to live up to it.”
Neil Strauss’s one of famous quotes on The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists
Sex Addict Neil:
Strauss has confronted his swaggering and extravagant playboy lifestyle in The Truth, An Uncomfortable Book about Relationships which was published by Dey St (an imprint of Harper Collins on 2015), he gave a detail about his lifestyle and also the road to recovery.
Strauss said that he joined the seduction community to overcome his low self-esteem and also bad luck with women. Strauss, who is now 45, was drastically transformed from a pale, skinny, bald guy into a Hollywood alpha-stud.
He endured himself with unfaithfulness and dishonesty while chasing his sexual addiction and that's the very reason which drove ladies attracted towards him. But his love for the family changed his perception towards other women, and this sent Neil in a psychiatric hospital for rehabilitation.Strauss wrote in his compelling new book that;
'I'm in a f**king mental hospital because I couldn't say no to a new sex partner,'
'There are people who need to go to this Level One psychiatric hospital because, without it, they are going to die,' writes Strauss in his book 'The Truth.' 'They're going to drink or snort or inject themselves to death.
'All I did was cheat on my girlfriend.'
His girlfriend is Ingrid Deleo who is also a model.He writes in his book.
'My mind is so clouded with guilt, I don't know anymore,'
He has described himself as the king of ambivalence and when single, he craves a relationship and, when in a relationship, he wants to be single. Finally, when that relationship ends, he regrets everything and doesn't even know what he wants anymore.
Strauss grew up sexually frustrated and moved into adulthood that way which led to himself being a sex addict. Relatively quiet and the sheltered kid from Chicago also got dumped on the night of his high school prom. Along with that, he remained bleakly single through college.
After that, he made himself into an access-all-areas rock journalist for the New York Times and Rolling Stone and managed to secure only one great kiss via his cool job – from the Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee.
Married to Hot Model: Girlfriend-Turned-Wife!
In 2013 he finally got married to his girlfriend and also a model Ingrid De La O, after holding a funeral-themed bachelor party to bid farewell to his style personal.
'It's really hard for her to read the book, obviously,' he said in an interview with dailymail.co.uk in 2015.
'All my horrible thoughts and the terrible things I've done are in there, and when she finished reading, she knew who I was and had no fear anymore. The lesson here is that the things you're most afraid to share with your partner are the things you probably should share.'
The couple has a son as well.

They were super open subjects (dangerous and delightful) and a joy to spend the afternoon with. I highly recommend his new book The Truth, about his long journey from having fun to being happy.
