Christy Turlington's Smart Sensuality Success Recipe For A Good Life

Christy Turlington is one of original supers and a consummate Smart Sensuality woman. Read why.

Turlington looks magnificent in the above image by Inez & Vinoodth for Porter Magazine #5. I pulled this other sequence of three images from the duo’s blog, because they sum up the combo of feminine and masculine values that converge in the Smart Sensuality woman.

What’s missing from this sensual feast from Inez % Vinoodth is the action-driven philanthropy component that is core to the lifestyle of a Smart Sensuality woman. For Turlington, the core action based on doing good is the creation of her ‘Every Woman Counts’ Foundation, dedicated to improving maternal health worldwide.

Vogue profiled Christy Turlington in early September as the super woman, wife and mother of two as the veterman New York Marathon runner prepped to become a newbie in the Chicago Marathon this month.Vogue writes:

Turlington Burns has been training for marathons since 2011, when she saw an opportunity to raise awareness for her nonprofit, Every Mother Counts, which aims to provide women with access to critical medical care in an effort to end preventable deaths during pregnancy and childbirth. The 26-mile challenge is symbolic of the issue because, says Turlington Burns, “distance is one of the biggest barriers women face bringing life into the world,” with expectant mothers in developing countries often traveling great distances in search of emergency care.

In the FYI column, Turlington describes running into New York in the final leg of that global epic marathon, explaining that New York ranks 47th in the US in maternal mortality. A recent grant from Every Mother Counts to the New York state government seeks to make pregnancy and childbirth safer for every female living in the state. ~ Anne

Anais Mali Pays Tribute To Warrior Women In 'Amazon' By Urivaldo Lopes for French Revue De Modes #25

Model Anais Mali is styled by Jonathan Mahaut in ‘Amazon’, lensed by Urivaldo Lopes for French Revue De Modes #25, Fall/Winter 2014/15.

In Greek mythology, the Amazons were fierce female warriors who descended from Ares, the god of war. Amazonian women are frequently pictured fighting on horseback with bows and arrows, axes and spears. Frequently Amazons carry a crescent-shaped shield. As patriarchal values soared in Greece and especially under Aristotle, the Amazons were portrayed as man-hating women.

The Amazon River in South America is believed to have been named by the Spanish explorer Fransisco de Orellana in 1541 who encountered female warriors on his voyage through a territory then called Maranon.

In Ukraine, Katerina Tarnovska is the leader of a group called the Asgarda. These women claim to be a new tribe of Amazons that represent a nationalist, maternalist movement seeking to change patriarchal values.

Although Tarnovska is adamant that the spirit of Amazonian women is alive in her her genes, Natalia Lavrinkeo, a senior researcher at Ukraine’s Institute of Sociology (NASU) believes the Asgarda movement was created by the nationalist political party. Lavrinko argues the the real purpose of Asgarda is designed “to attract more women to a movement whose real purpose is to promote childbirth and perpetuate the Ukraine’s overwhelmingly patriarchal society,” writes Prospect Magazine.

Asgarda is not aligned with FEMEN, the group of breast-baring feminists committed to overturning the patriarchy.

A very real-life story about women warriors is playing out in Syria where one-third of the Kurdish army fighting ISIS is made up of women fighting alongside the men. I posted last night an extraordinary set of images of these fighters who say that ISIS is very afraid of them. ISIS believes that if a man is killed by a woman in battle, he will not go to heaven.

Ta Prohm Temple Is Home To Cambodia's Female Apsara Spirits

I am enraptured today with these images of Ta Prohm Temple in Cambodia. Located in Angkor, Siem Reap Province, Cambodia and built in the Bayon style in the late 12th and early 13th centuried, the temple was originally called Rajavihara.

Today the conservation and restoration of Ta Prohm — but in a style that pays homage to its current state of nature gone wild — is a partnership between the Archaelogical Survey of India and the APSARA (Authority for the Protection and Management of Angkor and the Region of Siem Reap).

The authorities at APSARA know that Apsara (also spelled as Apsarasa) is a female spirit of the clouds and waters in both Hindu and Buddhist myths. In fact, apsaras are an important motif in the stone bas-reliefs of the Angkorian temples built in Cambodia in the 8th-13th centuries AD.

Several years ago, I quoted Cambodian writer Kounila Keo, who contrasted the history of women in Cambodia and America:

Unlike America, for example, and its “founding fathers,” a precedent is already in place for female leadership in Cambodia. Queen Lieu Ye, the country’s original monarch, who ruled over a group of Khmer tribes, is known to have formed the Kingdom called Funan, or Nokor Phnom, setting a standard for women as premieres, not only in the family, but in society as a whole.   

In the memory of Queen Lieu Ye’s matriarchy, the word mae (mother) continues to connote the honour of the female-being and, more importantly, traits of ‘greatness, leadership, or of being the essential element’. For example, you still have gender neutral words such as mae-torp (military commander), mae-khum (chief of commune), referring to anyone who holds these positions of power.

It is also worth noting that Cambodians address their parents and grandparents with the female first; “mother and father,” for example, or “grandmother and grandfather.”

Looking at these images I feel the fecundity of female spirits, the deep roots of nature and very substance of our beings. But I also think of the assault on women’s rights that has become a core value of so many of the world’s religions, including Christianity with its patriarchal views. ~ Anne

Yes, The G-Spot Does Exist As Part Of Holistic Female Sexual Anatomy

I could write: “No wonder women and men are confused! What do you mean there is no G-spot!!!! I have one.”

Like all the quickie analysis of how to pleasure a woman, Huff Po UK’s Rachel Moss adds to the confusion, writing:

In the majority of women’s magazines (Cosmo, we’re looking at you) a woman’s G-spot is listed as the magical gateway to sexual pleasure.

But new research suggests the ‘holy grail’ of female orgasms may not even exist.

Really? Is that what the research said, Rachel? Then why did you follow with this explanation:

A study, published in the journal Nature Reviews Urology, says it isn’t just the G-Spot that brings a woman sexual pleasure but a much larger “intimate area”, named the clitourethrovaginal (CUV) complex, which includes the uterus and the clitoris.

While you add to the perpetual confusion about female sexuality, Rachel, are you certain that the study concluded that the uterus is part of the CUV? Or have you confused uterus with urethra? I know both words begin with the letter ‘u’, but that is all they have in common in the recent reswearch. 

If I sound annoyed by these kneejerk headlines concerning the G-Spot not existing, I respond “you got that right!” Women have enough challenges achieving sexual pleasure in America, and the Brits are no better off.

For starters, the new research led by Emmanuele A. Jannini, professor of endocrinology and sexology at Tor Vergata university in Rome, says that the pleasure zone that triggers a female orgasm — where the woman is psychologically and emotionally receptive to having one I will add — is more complex than just a single area identified as the G-spot, named after Ernst Grafenberg, a German gynaecologist who proposed its existence in 1950.

Professor Jannini concludes that the CUV complex comprising the clitoris, urethra and anterior (front) vaginal wall is “much more complex than a simple, phantasmagoric ‘point’ ” — not that I ever thought it was a ‘point’. 

“The vagina is an active tissue and sexually important to be respected,” concludes Dr. Jannini. 

The ‘stop looking for the G-spot, it does not exist’ headlines serve to further confuse everyone about female sexual anatomy. Frankly, I do not understand what new research comes from Dr. Jannini.

Kate Moss Broke All Fashion's Rules Writes AnOther Magazine F/W14

Kate Moss by Craig McDean for Another F/W14Supermodel Kate Moss covers the F/W14 issues of AnOther magazine, with a fifth cover online only.

AnOther’s editor-in-chief Jefferson Hack tells us why Kate is the ultimate sensual rebel:

There can never be enough Kate Moss. Everywhere she goes, she is engulfed in a clamour of noise, questions and demands. People want to see everything, know everything. They want her face, her cheekbones, her smile, her style. They want to get under the skin of the sphinx. She is fashion’s obsession, “our generation’s most significant fashion icon,” says AnOther’s editor-in-chief Jefferson Hack. “She changed the history of fashion by breaking the rules as a model, channelling the ‘don’t give a fuck’ attitude of the noughties into a powerful signature stance of defiance…She did it without a script, without a plan, and seemingly without a care.”

Kate Moss Shares Left Breast As Mold For Champagne Glass

Champagne is my favorite beverage, leaving me pleased to share my return to Anne of Carversvville and GlamTribale with news that supermodel Kate Moss inspired British artist Jane McAdam Freud’s champagne glass molded around Kate’s left breast. Celebrating Kate’s 25 years in fashion, the project is sponsored by Mayfair restaurant 34.

Kate is not the first woman to inspire such a champagne glass. Marie Antoinette affords Kate the place of recreating the lavish concept glass which will also be available at sister restaurants The Ivy, Daphne’s and Scott’s. 

As for the future of AOC, there will be major changes that reflect the very difficult last year of my life. Any fashion editorials must support either GlamTribale or sensuality. Both domestic and international women’s rights, women artists, women politicos and women philanthropists will return to prominence. And I will integrate some of the wonderful inspiration from my Facebook friends into our content. 

As my websites return to supporting my core values, I share a toast to the future and all that it holds dear.

Much love, Anne

Angelina Jolie In 'Untamed Heart' By Hedi Slimane For Elle June 2014

It’s difficult to imagine Angelina Jolie dedicating herself to terrifying young children worldwide as Disney’s ‘deliciously evil’ Maleficent. Jolie was so divinely evil that her daughter Vivienne was cast as the young Aurora, who could handle the Mistress of All Evil hissing “I don’t like children” in her face.

“And my little Vivienne — we call her my shadow, because there’s nothing I can do to shake her. I can be tired, I can be grumpy, I can be in a terrible mood, and she just doesn’t care. It’s ‘Mommy, Mommy’ and she’ll cling to me,” Jolie says. “We knew that she would still do that thing, she’d still smile at me and insist that I pick her up. So we couldn’t really cast anybody else.”

For Elle Magazine’s June issue, Angelina Jolie is lensed deliciously, darkly at ease in ‘Untamed Heart’ by Hedi Slimane, styled by Joe Zee. / Hair by Adam Campbell; makeup by Tony G
