Kickstarter removed the completed seduction guide campaign, that promised to teach men how to get women to sleep with them, from their website but have the page kept as records.
Kickstarter stated they could not take back the $16,000 that the guide raised because it already transferred from the backers to Amazon escrow account. (Which then goes to the account holder in 10-15 days according to the website)
Kickstarter has decided to ban future “seduction guides,” and donate $25,000 to an anti-sexual violence organization.
