Has anyone ever heard Tyler or the lads mention anything about this? I imagine he would have at some point seeing as he's conscious of health, and is in pick-up for the long haul. I've had tinnitus in my left ear for over a year now, so it's something that I'm conscious of. I was considering maybe wearing an ear plug in my left ear when in clubs, and I could use the other ear to interact.

The music in the nightclub that I went to recently was just about the loudest music I've ever encountered in a nightclub. All of the floor staff have ear plugs in, but I felt sorry for the bar staff as they need to hear orders. There were a few areas around the club that were a tiny bit quieter, but they were the smoking areas! I was speaking to a girl about this the next day (who'd been there) and all she'd to say was "oh, was it loud? I can't remember I was so drunk!" Interesting, right?

Anyway, I happen to know a few other venues in my city that don't play the music so loud, so I won't be going to that place again! It's kind of sad to think these folks think they're letting their hair down by being in a nightclub, but all they're really doing is:
 
  • polluting their liver
  • polluting their lungs
  • ruining their hearing for decades down the road

Needless to say, it made interactions a tad bit more difficult. There's always the "what?", and by the point you hear what she said all you're thinking is "thank God, I heard it this time" - so your mind is in the wrong place. Eventually I decided to cut my loses, and the line for the cloak room was right beside a speaker. Horrible! Thankfully the ringing in my ear wasn't any louder next day.

I have tinnitus. I wear earplugs. Nobody really makes fun of me for it.

In 300+ nights at the club I would say I wore earplugs about 80 to 90% of the time. Regardless, I have noticeable hearing loss. I just accpet it as a price to pay. 

In all that time I only ever had one girl comment on the earplugs. She was high on cocaine and asked if I was a FBI agent. Go figure.

A deafeningly loud nightclub is about the last place I’d ever want to be (drunkards and druggie degenerates everywhere, not to mention it’s impossible to have a convo) and it can definitely cause long-term hearing loss. I have no idea how Tyler hasn’t gone deaf by now.

Most RSD instructors, including Tyler, wear earplugs in loud venues. Even visible in some of their videos.

Does that not make it even harder to hear the girl?

Those things do count as letting your hair down.

Humans have been drinking alcohol socially for thousands of years, it's fun and also a great social lubricant, no wonder it's so popular. You're not going to suffer any negative effects from it at all unless you ABUSE it like an alcoholic drinking a bottle of vodka every couple of days. The odds of getting liver failure or something from drinking in moderation once per week or once every couple of weeks is astronomically low to absolute zero. Avoiding alcohol completely is something you would do if you had a liver disease or was a competitive bodybuilder with a show coming up.

I suggest you don't go to nightclubs, because you harbor animosity towards the type of people who go there, and you hate the environment, so nothing good can come of it. You will just be in a terrible state wanting to leave, and won't like any of the people. Literally every single other person there will be drinking or some will even be coked up or on Ecstasy depending on the venue - this includes the women who you'll be approaching. You should watch Todd's video about drinking alcohol, he recommends that you do.

And wearing earplugs in clubs you will definitely not be able to hear anyone talking to you.

I personally love those environments, I literally don't talk to women anywhere else. It gives me immense enjoyment to get tipsy with a friend and go hit on a bunch of similarly-tipsy women and enjoy the music. It's so much fun. There is honestly nothing better. Festivals too, similar sort of thing.

Thanks CJ,

I certainly get the impression that you'd disagree with a lot of what Owen teaches. You seem more like a natural. I enjoy going out, just in a very different way to you. And I don't mind nightclubs. It's only if the music is too loud.

Well obviously what I mean, is that it's a shame that "letting one's hair down" has to involve such deleterious effects

Oh for goodness sake, I probably harbour animosity towards well over half the women I bed. It doesn't mean I can't relate to them in some way. If you're the sort of guy that's seen it all before, then it is indeed possible to seduce someone, while all the while thinking "God I'd hate her if I knew you". And that doesn't necessarily mean you don't have chemistry with that person. If I were to take your advice, I'd end up patrolling around some library looking for women! 

With alcohol, sadly as a scientist, I know that it's a case of every little bit counts. Every little bit slowly ads up to increases one's chances of gene mutations, cancer, etc. It'd be too good to be true otherwise. I always hated alcohol anyway. I also like the challenge of going without alcohol. And I've saved a fortune when I was younger from not buying it. I watched all my mates make the biggest mistakes of their lives while completeley stoned. You see, I've grown to like getting with women, while feeling like a spy!

IMHO ear plugs? Maybe like not drinking alcohol in a bar or club. I think I was 1 time at a very loud club, because I was close to the stage.

It's a great idea to use earplugs.  Put them in when you walk into areas that are too loud.

At one point I had tinnitus for a few weeks and took it easy.  It often doesn't go away, but in my case it did.  Definitely be careful.
