Then what is this I wonder? If it isn't dodgy door-to-door sales then could it be a new kind of pickup technique for the ladies?

It's not clear whether the author meant "a new kind of pickup technique for the ladies" (which to me would indicate that the women are the ones trying to pick people up) or "a new kind of technique for picking up ladies".

The Japanese means what the English means to AlanF_US and to me.
Perhaps the Hebrew and Russian are mistranslations. Those are languages that I don't know.
