Good morning, indeed….
No, I hadn’t resorted to calling an illicit phone sex line. Instead, on the other end of the phone was Kevin, the man behind Spencer Burnett, Chicago’s very own dating, sex, and pickup guru. When I was asked to interview Kevin for Singles Warehouse, I was instantly intrigued…and also a bit skeptical. I’d seen the movie “Hitch.” I’d read “The Game.” I had even taken part in (and won!) a game or two of verbal ping-pong and sexual innuendos with a pickup artist or two in my day, too. Still, nothing could have prepared me for talking to Kevin.
Unlike your regular, run-of-the-mill pickup artist or playboy, Spencer Burnett goes well beyond simply scoring a number or getting laid. Instead, he focuses on sexual technique, seduction skills, and personal development. As he explains it, “I was (once) a playboy, but I wasn’t a man. I cared more about doing what playboys do than actually being a man – it’s a reckless way to live. The good news is that you can have it all.”
At any given time, Spencer Burnett is working with ten to twelve clients for three months at a time, and 20% to 30% of his clientele is female. As the “head coach,” Kevin also employs a team to help run the company. This includes someone in charge of social media, a videographer/ photographer, and a product manager. Together, they keep Spencer Burnett running at lightening speed, allowing Kevin to network out and about in Chicago four to five nights a week. All of his clients have 24/7 access to Kevin, and that includes visibility to his social calendar. Not a bad deal, if you ask me.
Where Did Spencer Burnett End and Kevin begin? I was intrigued…
However, for as much as I was fascinated by the actual business, I was even more genuinely intrigued by the man behind Spencer Burnett. Where did Spencer Burnett end and Kevin begin? And vice versa? Can a man in this line of work maintain a real relationship? How does his mother feel about all of this “dick” and “pussy” talk? My questions were endless….
For Kevin, Spencer Burnett is less an alter ego than a genuine extension of who he is. He considers “Spencer Burnett” as more of a nickname than anything else, and I can only imagine that much of his success is due to that fact that he seamlessly blends both worlds. He maintains a healthy (and likely steamy!) relationship with a woman who supports his work. His parents have always accepted his unapologetic sexuality, so they support what he’s doing, too. Grandma may not fully be on board yet, though.
Spencer Burnett is all about moving beyond the pornographic or sterile conversations surrounding sex and getting people really TALKING.
But, really, having Grandma on board for the sex talk may only be a matter of time. Because, beyond helping others find and maintain sexy relationships, Spencer Burnett is about creating a movement that propels conversations surrounding sex and attraction beyond the purely pornographic or, worse yet, sterile and get people really talking. Kevin asserts that, “women are too nice and men lie too much,” and, if he had his way, we’d all be more honest and open about it all.
So, what topics came up when Spencer Burnett and I got down to the nitty gritty dirty details of sex and attraction? Threesomes. Hand jobs. Orgasms. Porn. Squirting. There were no limits, and the details that I learned were truly eye-opening. Want to learn about all of this…and find out which one sex toy most terrifies men and why? Well, you’re just going to have to tune in next week, dear readers, to get all of the sexy details. Trust me, you’re NOT going to want to miss it.
