The Seduction Artist (VICE/HBO)

Justin Wayne is a “seduction artist” — a particular kind of dating coach who promises to teach men how to convince reluctant women, usually strangers in a public place, to sleep with them. Wayne’s advice isn’t particularly unique. But the way he proves it works is.

On YouTube, he posts “infield” videos, hidden camera footage of women he claims to have met on the street and seduced almost instantly. These videos often include footage of Wayne having sex with these women, whose eyes he’s concealed with tiny black bars, suggesting that they did not know they were being filmed.

His videos have earned millions of views, and he has 127,000 YouTube subscribers​. But Wayne's channel just shows how little YouTube does to police its content — particularly the host of explicit videos. And Wayne crosses ethical, and possibly legal, lines in these videos teaching men how to manipulate women into sex, even if they say no.​​

VICE News caught up with Wayne at one of his bootcamps in Miami Beach, and discovered that he also bribes and coerces the women he claims in the videos are his girlfriends.

And Wayne claims to have five girlfriends — more proof his methods work — and that eight women have publicly revealed they have his name tattooed on their bodies. VICE News asked if the tattoos were about power. “Yeah,” Wayne said. “Show me you're more committed. You know, sacrifice.… That proves to me you're more committed, by getting my name on your body.”
