What does the term “rinse” mean?

In answer the question :
If you are asking this then you probably did not catch the channel 4 tv programme which coined the underground phrase for girls (usually but not always glamorous girls) that exploit men’s weaknesses by getting cash or other material gifts from these men by using their charms in exchange for their time, friendship and in some cases financial humiliation.

We have conducted a poll and for the guys it seems that most who participate enjoy the thrill of being humiliated and with the large bulk of visitors wish to find out more about the art of becoming a rinser or being rinsed. Again by our open poll it suggests that many people think that Rinsing is a good idea (almost 70%). Whilst some claim to have rinsed hundreds of thousands in gifts or money; others are just starting out.

The term golddigger used to be used but in todays social media savvy generation twitter, bbm facebook and youtube are all free tools the girls are using. The once “undergorund” term of rinsing< along with the help of the c4 documentary brings the art fully into the mainstream.

A man throwing lots of cash at a woman, shouting “Your rinsing me baby your rinsing me, Take it all, rinse me harder!”

I’m all rinsed out, well back to work, gotta earn more, hey maybe i could sell my car..

Prefrontal white matter in pathological liars

BackgroundStudies have shown increased bilateral activation in the prefrontal cortex when normal individuals lie, but there have been no structural imaging studies of deceitful individuals.


AimsTo assess whether deceitful individuals show structural abnormalities in prefrontal grey and white matter volume.


MethodPrefrontal grey and white matter volumes were assessed using structural magnetic resonance imaging in 12 individuals who pathologically lie, cheat and deceive (‘liars’), 16 antisocial controls and 21 normal controls.


ResultsLiars showed a 22–26% increase in prefrontal white matter and a 36–42% reduction in prefrontal grey/white ratios compared with both antisocial controls and normal controls.


ConclusionsThese findings provide the first evidence of a structural brain deficit in liars, they implicate the prefrontal cortex as an important (but not sole) component in the neural circuitry underlying lying and provide an initial neurobiological correlate of a deceitful personality.

Pseudologia Fantastica, Factitious Disorder and Impostership: A Deception Syndrome

Pseudologia fantastica and impostership are not currently included in diagnostic systems, although there is an overlap between these two syndromes and factitious disorder. A case which illustrates the overlap is described, and the diagnostic dilemma is discussed. A term ‘deception syndrome’ is proposed for those individuals who pathologically deceive for internal (i.e. psychological) as opposed to external reasons such as financial gain.

5 Lies The Narcissist Wants You To Believe

What to Do When Your Adult Child Lies to You

Adult children who show patterns of lying are likely deceptive because they want to hide their struggles. The sad truth is that they may believe that lying is the way to feel good about themselves. But a consistent pattern of lies usually puts them on the “bottle it up and explode, or implode later” plan. Not a good plan to be on, as we all know!

By “struggling adult children,” I am referring to those who demonstrate:

  • Financial lack of responsibility or recklessness
  • Not being able to consistently hold a job
  • Doing poorly in college
  • Problems related to substance use
  • Destructive relationships
  • Emotional manipulation toward parents and unfairly blaming them for their struggles

I have found from years of coaching parents in the U.S. and around the world that they share a common need: to learn to effectively respond to lies from their adult children. There is no one reason why an adult child lies. But through sorting out the history in the coaching process, some of the common reasons that emerge are:

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Addictions: When in the midst of active addictions, young adults may try to hide their alcohol or substance use. Lies about where they are going or where they’ve been are common in these circumstances. Manipulations of blaming others for why they use fall into the realm of deception often occur, as well.

Anxiety and Depression

Bipolar Disorder: When in an active manic phase of bipolar disorder, young adults may have grandiose plans for their future and lack contact with reality. In seeking their impulsive yearnings, they may deceive others and try to inflict guiltshame, or anger to cover up lies.

Borderline Personality DisorderYoung adults with borderline personality disorder have huge trust issues and drama-laden, volatile relationships with others. This leads to significant distortions of the truth at times.

Other issues: Other personality disorders (e.g., narcissism) or general emotional immaturity can trigger lying behaviors.

Whether your adult child struggles with one or a few of the above issues, there are some crucial “don’ts and dos” to keep in mind to help them tell the truth when they struggle. Continue reading “What to Do When Your Adult Child Lies to You”

Dangerous Mind Games

We’ve all been burned by psychopaths largely because we fell for their lies and their lines.  The better informed people are with their techniques of deception, the more they can recognize them and protect themselves against them. A psychopath gets you within his power largely through deception. As Cleckley noted in The Mask of Sanity, the main reason why people are easily taken in by their lies is not because the lies themselves are that convincing, but because of the psychopaths’ effective rhetorical strategies. What are those?

1. Glibness and Charm. We’ve already seen that these are two of the main personality traits of psychopaths.

2. Analogies and Metaphors. Because their facts are so often fabrications, psychopaths often rely upon analogies and metaphors to support their false or manipulative statements.

3. Slander. A psychopath often slanders others, to discredit them and invalidate their truth claims. He projects his faults and misdeeds upon those he hurts. To establish credibility, he often maligns his wife or girlfriend, attributing the failure of his relationship to her faults or misdeeds rather than his own.

4. Circumlocution. When you ask a psychopath a straightforward question that requires a straightforward answer, he usually goes round and round in circles or talks about something else altogether. .

5. Evasion. Relatedly, psychopaths can be very evasive. When you ask a psychopath a specific question, he will sometimes answer in general terms, talking about humanity, or men, or women, or whatever: anything but his own self and actions, which is what you were inquiring about in the first place.

6. Pointing Fingers at Others. When you accuse a psychopath of wrongdoing, he’s likely to tell you that another person is just as bad as him or that humanity in general is. The first point may or may not be true. At any rate, it’s irrelevant.

7. Fabrication of Details. In The Postmodern Condition, Jean-François Lyotard shows how offering a lot of details makes a lie sound much more plausible. When you give a vague answer, your interlocutor is more likely to sense evasion and pursue her inquiries.

8. Playing upon your Emotions. Very often, when confronted with alternative accounts of what happened, psychopaths play upon your emotions. They’re as dangerous to their partners as any hard drug is likely to be. If their partners know about their harmful actions and about their personality disorder, then at least they’re willingly assuming the risk. Everyone has the right to make choices in life, including the very risky one of staying with a psychopath. But at least they should make informed choices, so that they know whom they’re choosing and are prepared for the negative consequences of their decision.

Deception constitutes a very entertaining game for psychopaths. They use one victim to lie to another. They use both victims to lie to a third. They spin their web of mind-control upon all those around them. They encourage antagonisms or place distance among the people they deceive, so that they won’t compare notes and discover the lies. Often they blend in aspects of the truth with the lies, to focus on that small grain of truth if they’re caught. The bottom line remains that psychopaths are malicious sophists. It really doesn’t matter how often they lie or how often they tell the truth. Psychopaths use both truth and lies instrumentally, to persuade others to accept their false and self-serving version of reality and to get them under their control. For this reason, it’s pointless to try to sort out the truth from the lies. As M. L. Gallagher, a contributor to the website has eloquently remarked, psychopaths themselves are the lie. From hello to goodbye, from you’re beautiful to you’re ugly, from you’re the woman of my life to you mean nothing to me, from beginning to end, the whole relationship with a psychopath is one big lie.
