The Greatest Job In The World (For A Man)

What would be your criteria for the greatest job a man could have in the world? I’ll list what I think should be your criteria:

  1. Continual exposure to a variety of young, pretty, naked women
  2. Willingness of a significant subset of those young, pretty women to sleep with you
  3. An occupational dynamic that requires leadership skills in the form of ordering young, pretty women to do your bidding
  4. Very little competition from other men in the field, or on the job
  5. Relatively high pay
  6. Relatively high status
  7. Minimal amount of rote work
  8. Maximal amount of fun and creativity
  9. Lots of travel to exotic and charming locations around the globe
  10. Plenty of opportunity to discreetly cheat, if married or otherwise committed

Is there a man alive with working testicles who wouldn’t agree with my description of the perfect male job? No, I bet not.

So what is the greatest job in the world?

Meet Richard Kern.

Kern has been taking photographs of attractive naked women for 25 years in countries around the world. Young women in various states of undress. Naked women in pools. Naked women in showers. Naked women smoking pot. Naked women combing their hair. Naked women on all fours scrubbing the floor. And, presumably, naked women sucking his dick after work hours.

I know what you’re thinking. Kern is not gay. He’s married to a hot chick more than half his age. Kern is in his 50s, but he looks younger and, more importantly for men interested in picking up younger women, he *acts* like a man half his age. His is a life of unrelenting joy and exquisite pleasure. If there is a heaven on earth, Kern has found it. When asked if he has slept with any of his subjects, he is not coy, admitting that he’s had a number of sexual relationships with the ladies he photographs.

Surprisingly, Kern does a lot of his shooting with a pocket digital camera. He prefers capturing in voyeuristic style the natural beauty of the girl-next-door, the kind of girl you most want to despoil. Kern is almost clinical about the sexuality of his subjects that infuses his work, going on for impressive lengths about the shape, size, color and texture of the great megafauna of breastessesss constantly bouncing in front of his camera lens. Reminds me of someone else.

Some may wonder if it’s Kern’s job that attracts the girls, or if the job is merely incidental to Kern’s seductive alphaness. It’s more the latter, but no doubt photography, and the men skilled at it, are especially attractive to women, probably for the reason that any visual-based skill or artistry, being primarily the domain of maleness, is naturally intriguing to the visuo-spatially challenged sex. But that is a minor effect. The status of Kern’s job, and his status within the field, is the predominant attractor when we separate his personality from his achievements. Men who excel in female-oriented fields are also very attractive to women.

I bet you’re curious about Kern’s wife. I was. So I found this illuminating documentary video of Kern and Martynka. It’s short, about 11 minutes. You should watch the whole thing. It is 11 minutes demonstrating the power of pure game. What comes out of the video is just what a natural player Kern is, and the classic seduction and alpha male dynamics which hold powerful sway over the pretty Martynka’s emotional fidelity to her husband.

Some choice quotes:

Interviewer: Do you ever get jealous?

Martynka: No, I actually… it’s a weird thing… but it turns me on that he’s like shooting 18 year old hot girls. I find it exciting. I don’t get bored of him in that sense, because… I know it sounds weird but I actually thinks it’s cool he’s out, hanging out with like some 18 year old girl in her bedroom, showing him her tits, and um, it keeps things exciting for me, cause that little bit of jealousy makes my obsession last longer.

You don’t say!

I remember when I wrote that “women want you to cheat” post it engendered howls of indignation from my many female commenters. Oh, how you say… what was it again?…. oh yah…

Watch what women do, don’t listen to what they say.

What about the proposal? Certainly an inveterate and experienced womanizer like Kern would know better than to drop to one knee and beg for indentured servitude. Does Richard Kern follow my advice and propose to Martynka like an alpha male? Does a herb load in his pants?

Interviewer: So you guys got married in June. Was the proposal special, was it kind of romantic?

Martynka: It was very Richard style.

Interviewer: What was it?

Martynka: He didn’t really propose. But it was really cute. Cause he was so nervous about it.

Interviewer: So he kind of proposed but didn’t propose?

Martynka: No, he didn’t even say what it is.

[Scene switch]

Interviewer: Tell me about when you proposed to Martynka?

Richard: Oh, um, I couldn’t actually say the words that you have to say to do that, and, um…

Interviewer: Will you marry me?

Richard: Yeah. So, I, um, I didn’t have a birthday present for us, see, and I knew she had to get married to get a green card, so I tried to pass it off as my birthday present.

Interviewer: She said it took like 45 minutes to understand what you were asking.

Richard: Yeah, I never actually said it. [Ed: Richard almost sounds proud of this. Ha!]

But this was my favorite Kern-ism:

Richard: I’m fine with being married as long as I don’t have to talk about it, or acknowledge it.

Talk about a cunt-wetting frame.

By the way, Kern stole Martynka away from her much younger boyfriend. As the internet nerd herd might say: THIS.

    But if all scholarly types decide to abandon their pursuits, in order to find more girl-friendly professions, then what becomes of society?

    That’s why a wide proliferation of game knowledge might not be good for the world. Men would spend less time on their pursuits; their hobbies and their careers, and more time in the Great Hunt.

    Indeed, incompetence with women is one of the great engines of our society. It’s the force that drove betas to greater and greater achievements: Would Dante have written the Divine Comedy, if he’d been able to game Beatrice?

    One of the best times of my life was when I had my last business and we were doing video and still shoots at my store with strippers and models.

    Sure, the guy with the camera has status, but the producer/director (ME!) didn’t lack for attention from the models either.

    Any guy who has any doubts whatsoever about the power of the camera and everything that goes along with it should place an ad on Craigslist looking for “models” 18-24 to be in a TV commercial. State very clearly that this is NOT a paid gig, and that you will offer copies of all of the materials for their portfolio in exchange for their time.

    I can guarantee you that if you live in a decent size metro area your inbox will be filling up within hours. When I ran these kinds of ads I would usually get 12-20 hits from chicks who were plump but cute and never been in front of a camera before, all the way to established models who within the next year went on to shoot for Playboy.

    My next little side project is to pick up a dSLR and start getting some shots of my g/f. She bartends one night a week at a strip club, so if I have enough fun shooting her I can probably talk her into recruiting a few coworkers. That could be fun……

  45. I would be wary of jumping into ~alpha professions~ like photography assuming that it’s going to get you easy poon. This reminds me of when I was into amateur modeling for a while. We can spot the wannabe-alphas who act like they really care about ~the art~ but are obviously mainly doing it for the chicks (especially when said photographers are divorced, in their 40s and want you to come to their ~basement studio~). It was just amusing and annoying, and few photographers cared about the art I wanted to create.

    Also, everyone was trying to get me to do nudes/lingerie when I clearly stated in my profile that I don’t do those things. How disrespectful! One guy even tried to convince me for thirty minutes that I had some sort of sexual dysfunction for not wanting to take my clothes off for this strange man I’ve never met. I insulted his shitty photos and he signed off rofl. Persistent game fail.

    I disagree that knowing the photographer is a huge slut makes him more attractive to healthy-minded females. You might be confusing women feeling *safer* around men with gfs/ample access to pussy because it seems less likely that they will take their sexual deprivation out on you, with women actively wanting them more. It personally grosses me out from ever dating them as they go into the “probably has STDs and four illegitimate children” pile.

    [editor: it may gross you out, but for most chicks a man surrounded by willing women is viscerally more attractive and fuckable.]

    Hi Game In BK!

    I watched this season of the bachelor and fell madly in love with Jake. He’s actually perfect hubby material. The problem is he let go of all the sweet good girls and at the end he picked the one that gave him the hardest boner-Vienna. Throughout the show all the signs were there that Vienna was a spoiled brat (she’s an only child and young, she’s 21 or 22). So, it’s Jake’s lack of experience with women that got him into this Vienna mess. He’s a dumb-dumb. There were a lot of American women on the show that were super sweet.

Game with lifestyle is powerful. Lifestyle without game is just constant blue balls and frustration sprinkled with oneitis and occasional event sex (birthday sex, big party and she got smashed sex, etc). Any guy with Game who wants to have a great lifestyle most certainly should look into Hot Chick dominated gigs, such as modeling, promoting, photography, etc. Anything that is tertiarty to those jobs is also worth looking into.

    That’s 100% correct.

    Photography will bring you the women but not necessarily the pussy. You still have to show value to get laid, aside from the odd “gimme” that inevitably gets thrown your way. I really wish I wasn’t going through other shit in my life when I was dealing with all of those girls, cause I could have cleaned house.

    On a side note…..one of the best props you can have in a bachelor pad is a video camera (preferably something that looks professional) sitting on a tripod in plain view right in your living room. Stage it with some bags and other gear so it looks like you just didn’t have time to put it away. You would be surprised at how many chicks will ask you to break it out when you are fucking them.

    Hell, even having a point and shoot still cam sitting on the table has gotten me a “bring your camera” from a chick as I was leading her up to my bedroom.

Being appealing to the mass public isn’t a compliment for a lot of creatives, and not just those hiding behind the fact that they suck and claim they mean to be unpopular. I refer to the good talent being upset that they are getting “funded” by the masses, whose taste is of lower caliber. Some people actually put quality above quantity as artists, and as people for that matter. It’s the business minds that push the numbers game (to each his own). Hef is a business man. Kern is an artist. Hef knew what would sell and kept tabs on the pulse. Kern has taste and an eye for not just woman but for intimacy and erotica.

    Not that Hef didn’t have taste per se, but he had to be concerned with other things that allow for less freedom of choice. Kern can see the special feature of each girl and what is erotic about his work is that he leaves slight imperfections, like a small bruise, just like it would be if the girl was before you naked in the flesh, and still polishes up the photo by not leaving the finish too raw. As in he edits with his eye as an artist.

    Hef himself would most likely hire someone like Kern. See the irony? Your comparing apples to oranges.

    Niko,

    Laughable. Can’t wait to see one of the MRA/PUA sites rip this thing apart, but until then I’ll drop a few chops myself.

    “One of the reasons that boys do not try harder is that the penalties for disengagement are so low – indeed, there are even rewards, at least in the sense that if you don’t try, you can’t fail.”

    In this respect, men are only catching up to women, who have always had the option of marrying into (relative) comfort instead of making their own bread.

    “The great male demotivator is the risk of loss of face – much more important to the masculine self-image of being masterful and in control than to a woman.”

    This is just plain not true. Women are probably even more concerned with the loss of social status. Unfortunately modern misandrism has allowed women to project these anxieties onto men.

    “For decades boys could follow their fathers into jobs that were routine and demanded little of them – in factories, offices or mines – and which did not expose them to the risk of public failure.”

    The columnist is getting near total-bonehead level now…dangerous, exhausting jobs in mills and mines demanded little of men? Really? And the ultimate locker-room environment of a physically-demanding work environment didn’t expose men to public failure with the humiliation of their peers if they didn’t measure up?

    “But what about ambition, the sheer hunger for any kind of achievement?”

    Still mostly men’s domain.

    “An astonishing 26% think a rich career in sport, entertainment or the media is open to them. Why go down to the Jobcentre?”

    Again, this option (windfall rather than work) has been open to women for decades via marriage, but if men consider it, they are bad boys?

    “And if women are prospering better in this brave new world, it is because they respond to the same signals by fearfully redoubling their efforts to avoid failure. The dark side of all that female diligence and hard work is the epidemic of eating disorders and mental health problems afflicting women.”

    The writer has completely exposed himself. He spends an entire column blasting men for “giving up” in the face of new challenges in the world. But when women show the mental and physical scars that comes with the climb up the ladder – well, that’s not really their fault, they are just “fearful.”

  90. men like this guy truly put the lie to the idea that women’s ideal necessarily involves commitment.

    many alpha players have such an emotional presence, and such an ability to stir up raw love and devotion in the hearts of their women, that their women don’t need absolute sexual fidelity from them — at this level, the emotional and sexual connection is sufficient to satisfy the woman’s needs (and more).
    in fact, one of the dirty little secrets of female nature is that sexual fidelity is only something that (most) women will demand from men who have ramped up the beta qualities just a little too far.
    in particular, there is a VERY narrow threshold range of “beta qualities” (affection, material provision, non-sexual time together, etc) below which the alpha man will eventually lose his woman, but above which she will want to start controlling/restricting him (increasingly with his distance past the threshold range). the upper end of this threshold gets higher as the man becomes more alpha, i.e., extremely dominant men can “afford” more affection without being labeled commitment targets.

    the aforementioned dirty little secret is that sexual fidelity is only wanted –or even seen as a good thing — when the man is past this beta threshold point. if he knows how to give the woman just enough beta/emotional connection to keep her heart hooked, without going too “soft”, most women will never demand any sort of commitment from him, unless said demand is a test that he would fail by giving in.

    if he knows women, and he is high alpha AND right at that beta threshold, even the strongest women will almost always be happy — deeply happy — as his bottom bitch, his no. 1 even despite his other playthings and even romantic trysts. less headstrong women will be equally deeply happy with “having something special” with him, even if he has something just as special with several others.

    BUT woe betide him if he lets the alpha slip. a woman scorned ain’t nothin’ compared to a woman who paid her heart for gold and got pyrite.

    –some interesting points you make here. Some of which I can say is true as a woman. I’m an exception though. I’m not a very jealous person by nature. I could have never had an ‘open’ realtionship with a guy in my early to mid twenties because my ego was still developing. Now I’d be cool with it as long as he truly loved me. Shallow shags on the side that I knew about that I also get to watch at times? Yes. Relationships with emotional connections with other women? No. Can’t deal. It’s not my ego that won’t allow it, it’s my heart. I don’t wish to posses his body but I do wish to possess his heart. Doug1 described it well on another thread. The main squeeze must feel safe/loved before and toes go a tappin outside of the realtionship. My eyes adore beauty, so I have no issues with it being naked in front of me, even if my guy’s hands are on it. It would require some ground work to be laid down tightly though.

    and yeah….

    “BUT woe betide him if he lets the alpha slip. a woman scorned ain’t nothin’ compared to a woman who paid her heart for gold and got pyrite. ”

    –you have no idea how much I relate to this. I want my money back. People here just don’t get that guys create images, they aren’t necessarily the real deal in real life.
