Kate Upton and the U.S. Marines

“Sex sells,” is a common enough saying. And it’s true. It’s so true that people prefer to look at beautiful women pretending to be something they aren’t instead of looking at people being who they actually are. Case in point, people prefer looking at Kate Upton pretending to be a marine over looking at me being an actual soldier.

There’s nothing wrong with the truth that people prefer looking at beautiful women over others. So this isn’t a complaint. And while I don’t have official statistics on how many people have viewed the following imagery of Kate Upton working out with the U.S. Marines, I’m quite certain the number is much higher than the number of people who have looked at any of the imagery (which, by the way, are quite rare) of me in uniform being an actual soldier.

And people preferring beautiful women to non-beautiful people is why I include beautiful women in my fiction and the professional art I commission from time-to-time (see one such example below).

So enjoy the following photographs and video of Kate Upton and the Marines in Detroit, Mi. on Aug. 22, 2017. One final note: the caption for the video says that it’s “Kate Upton, the Detroit Tigers Wives and U.S. Marines.” Examine the wives of the Detroit Tigers in the video and you’ll see another truth about life: the more money a man earns, the more beautiful of a wife he can afford.

Again, enjoy the imagery!
