"Be Nice, And You'll Have Her"
SCORING a gorgeous chick can be as easy as visiting your nearest flophouse. In "Dr. Z on Scoring - How to Pick Up, Seduce and Hook Up With Hot Women," out in February from Fireside Books, Victoria Zdrock suggests guys "up your philanthropist score by becoming a volunteer at a homeless shelter or a hospice. The women that work there are naturally giving, caring, and friendly even to the scruffiest of men. And kindness is one of the qualities women most look for in a male. Be sure to have a good sob story handy about the times you were 'down on your luck' and now want to 'pay back' the community. Next thing you know, you'll be enjoying soup in her kitchen." Zdrock, a columnist for Penthouse, also says men on the make should hit women's conventions. "Contrary to your instinctual aversion to women's lib, National Organization for Women meetings are the perfect breeding ground for available horny women," she writes. "Liberated women are much more likely to cast away outdated notions of courtship and chivalry . . . and you just might get laid on the first date." Merry Christmas!

Dan Gross: Ex-Playmate Wrote the Book
PENTHOUSE columnist Victoria Zdrok will be in town today hanging with NBC10 trying to teach local guys how to score hot babes.
It's also the subject of her new book, "Dr. Z on Scoring: How to Pick Up, Seduce, and Hook Up with Hot Women" (Fireside Books, $14.95). Zdrok, 34, who was the 2004 Penthouse Pet of the Year and 10 years earlier the October 1994 Playboy Playmate, lived in town for about eight years while studying at West Chester University, then earning a law degree at Villanova and a psychology degree from Hahnemann/Drexel.
She was married to local attorney Alexander Zdrok , but they have since divorced. She's now married to a man who she says "did everything it says in my book," when they met at a New York nightclub years ago. "Eye contact, genuine smile, acting dominant." It must have worked.
The Ukrainian immigrant says any guy can score any woman if he employs confidence, shows distinctiveness and doesn't look too eager. "In business negotiations, you don't want to look too eager. Same thing with women. You want to come across as a guy who has options," she advises.
Zdrok says the idea for the book was born when men approached her to ask how to date a woman like her "Do I have to be Donald Trump ?" they'd say. "No, I went out with Donald Trump. I didn't like him," she told them, but realized there was a market there for a dating book.
She'll work with NBC10 today, then tomorrow morning Zdrok will be on 94 WYSP's Kidd Chris Show. And at 1 p.m. Friday she'll be in studio with the Fanatics, Harry Mayes and Jamie Yannacone , on SportsTalk 950 AM.

Kristi Gustafson: "Pick up, seduce and hook up with hot women"
To every man who has ever thought to himself, “A girl like that would never hook up with a guy like me,” sexpot and “sexpert” Victoria Zdrok says, “Yes she would,” and then reveals how to make it happen with methods rooted in social and evolutionary psychology.
Victoria Zdrok is a sexologist, dating coach and relationship advisor who combines the best of beauty and brains. She is the only woman to be a Playboy centerfold and a Penthouse Pet of the Year-and hold a PhD in clinical psychology as well as a JD in law.
The book comes off of research from psychology experts as well as candid interviews with Penthouse centerfolds profiling their dating escapades and bedroom likes and dislikes. The book, “Dr. Z On Scoring” covers the bases, sharing the secret, surefire tips men have always wanted to know (and women hoped they never found out).
Stressing that the mental component of the seduction game should never be underestimated, she says. She teaches readers the type of man a particular woman finds most attractive is based on preferences formed in her early childhood-her “love map.”
Cracking the code to any woman's love map will reveal the best approach, attitude and appearance to win her over. The book gives advice on dealing with the insecurities and hang-ups that afflict even the most beautiful women.
The book offers an intimate guide to getting a woman hot-and keeping her that way. Combining insights (such as the importance of oral sex and whether size really matters) with specific advice on sexual technique (including the use of fantasy to fuel ongoing attraction), her step-by-step strategies are designed to “keep her coming back for more.”
You'll also get “Top 10” lists (from Most Unusual Places to Meet Women to Signs She is Interested in You), confidence-building exercises and examples of dating “hits” and “misses.”
“DR. Z ON SCORING: How to Pick Up, Seduce, and Hook Up with Hot Women.” costs $14.95 and is available wherever books are sold.

GOOD TIMES MAGAZINE (March 4-17, 2008)
are very few women like Victoria Zdrok, the author of Dr. Z On Scoring
(Fireside Books), her new selfhelp sexual instruction manual for men.
How many women can claim to be both a Penthouse Pet of the Year and a
Playmate – as well as a clinical psychologist? At the recent press junket for this book held at Hawaiian Tropic Zone in New York, the stunning Zdrok proved she could still work it for the mass of photographers who showed up on a snowy night, though her main role these days is that of resident sex
columnist for Penthouse Magazine. This book is an easy-to-read primer for
males who want to meet the woman of their dreams; the subtitle is "How To
Pick Up, Seduce, And Hook Up With Hot Women." In actuality, though, the
text of the book reads like good common sense advice for anyone
wishing to start a new relationship. It's eye opening to note that someone
among the beautiful people actually puts people first, as the beauteous Dr. Z obviously does. This new volume is available wherever books are sold.

COSMOPOLITAN (April 2008)
An inexperienced dater may find it easier to memorize a cheesy pickup line than to improvise an introduction and make conversation on the fly. Other men bust out superlame conversation starters (“Nice shirt—it’d look even better on my floor!”) on purpose to make you laugh and break the ice. Yet another reason: “Some guys use these unlikely lines to protect their egos,” says psychologist Victoria Zdrok, PhD, author of Dr. Z on Scoring. “If he gets rejected, it’s easier to blame it on the line or the woman’s missing sense of humor than it is to admit that she was simply not into him.”
COSMOPOLITAN (May 2008), Laura Gilbert's Guy Spy
“ I didn’t know you’d
be so upset.”
“ I figured you would
be, so I didn’t tell
you before I did it.”
