The Poznan Institute is the official home of neomasculinity, an ideology that was first named in March of 2015 by Roosh V (Daryush Valizadeh). It combines ideas on masculinity and tradition with the hard realities of our detached modern era. Its aim is to give men the tools for living a life that matches their natural roles while also bringing them closer to feminine women. We strongly urge you to read the founding document on neomasculinity to understand what it teaches men.

Neomasculinity combines traditional beliefs, masculinity, and animal biology into one ideological system. It aims to aid men living in Westernized nations that lack qualities such as classical virtue, masculinity in males, femininity in females, and objectivity, especially concerning beauty ideals and human behavior. It also serves as an antidote for males who are being programmed to accept Western degeneracy, mindless consumerism, and immoral state authority. (Read more…)

The caretakers of neomasculinity are Roosh V and Quintus Curtius. Both saw a need for a new belief system that wasn’t already met by ideas in the manosphere. Through their articles and dialogues, they aim to expand on neomasculinity further.

The name of neomasculinity’s home was inspired by the Polish city of Poznan, a place where Roosh lived in for over a year. Many of Roosh’s ideas on neomasculinity were realized in Poznan, and it’s also the location where he derived the term.


Poznan is a city where modern living and technology are clashing in full view against traditional European life. The city’s name serves as a fitting metaphor for the clash that all men now have to face between their masculine instincts and the cosmopolitan environments they find themselves living in.
