    Critics revile 'guide to getting awesome with women' as how-to book for rapists as author claims death threats

    Excerpts from Ken Hoinsky's book, for which he has received $16,000 in donations, tell men to forcibly put women on their laps and make them touch their genitals. He says his words have been taken out of context.


    excerpt from guide..

    "Physically pick her up and sit her on your lap. Don't ask for permission. Be dominant. Force her to rebuff your advances," .


    "We were wrong."

    With that, Kickstarter said Friday that it had erred in not moving quickly to remove from its website a request for money for a book that critics described as a guide for would-be rapists.
    In a statement addressed to "Dear everybody" and signed "Kickstarter," the website apologized and sought to explain.
    It said that on Wednesday morning, it received a blog post that quoted "disturbing material" found on Reddit that was taken from a draft for a "seduction guide." The guide's writer was using the crowd-funding website to raise $2,000 to get his work published.

    "The posts offended a lot of people -- us included -- and many asked us to cancel the creator's project," the statement said. "We didn't. We were wrong."

    So he's looking for controversy and tried something "wacky," eh?

    What, all the Japanese rape How-Tos aren't good enough? They even come fully illustrated!
