Recent years have seen a flood of women’s trainings that call for an end to the fight for gender equality and independence. Seminars instead suggest that ladies “open their sexuality,” “find their inner woman” or “become their man’s inspiration.” Even though there are many trainings devoted to women in business and career advancement, most of them still answer the basic question of how to seduce a man.
“We were taught how to look, move and even speak to be more attractive to a man,” says unemployed Svitlana Semakova, 24, who recently attended Rakov’s training under the provocative name, “I am actually smart but I live like I’m stupid.”
Organizers claim the program is based on the practical knowledge and experience that Rakov has amassed for several decades. Kyiv trainer and Rakov’s partner Sergei Mytrofanov says he’s been in the business for more than three years and fully trusts Rakov’s methods.
