Pick-up artists are nothing if not resourceful. After being cockblocked by all those independent, assertive feminists in Western countries, they've set their sights on distant lands - namely North Korea, where authoritarianism or other socioeconomic realities make them into the ultimate forbidden fruit.
And as reported by The Wire, tour companies have even started catering to PUAs, with Koryo Tours posting the following answer to the age-old PUA question, "Can I seal the deal with a North Korean girl?":
While not technically illegal this isn't something which is commonly achieved. It is much discussed by certain tourists but despite some serious efforts by some of the people on tour I have never once known of this conclusively happening. North Korea places great pride in its national homogeneity and is a deeply conservative culture, thus hooking up with a visiting foreigner would be something a bit shameful and also something quite out of character for almost all the women there (the men too, despite their bouts of braggadocio and masculine preening regarding their pick-up skills), not to mention somewhat unprofessional for people in the service industry. Its basically not something that can be realistically expected to happen; flirting is common, developing a crush on someone is universal, but beyond that we would have to disappoint. But thwarted Casanovas shouldn't feel too down about it; we travelled there a few years ago with a group of professional pick-up artists, and they all struck out too, to try and fail places you in illustrious company!
By the way, the PUAs on the Roosh V forum call having sex with a North Korean woman getting one's "NK flag." Achieving this is ultimate in pathetic PUA dick-measuring because of how naive and pliant societal oppression makes that country's women.
Roosh and his cohort haven't just set their sights on North Korea. They also discuss "pussy paradise" Ukraine on their forum, as Katie J.M. Baker has discovered. If you thought the PUAs would be concerned about peace from governmental turmoil Russian aggression in that then HAHAHAHAHA. They're actually concerned with Ukraine joining the EU, which could presumably make women more financially independent and thus less vulnerable to these manly men and their harassment.
