BANGED was a project initially proposed as a platform through which Angela Washko would interview women who had sexual encounters with the pick-up artist Roosh V to produce a book and web-based project of his conquest narratives. Roosh V is a former industrial microbiologist and “manosphere” blogger writes textbooks with titles like Bang, Bang Iceland, Bang Poland, Bang Colombia and Don’t Bang Denmark, about “picking up girls and getting laid” across geographic and cultural boundaries. Washko’s project notoriety when the Roosh became aware of it, upon which Washko decided to be in conversation with Roosh himself, beginning by conducting a two hour long interview with him. This is the interview.
