Soulmate Status | Sean and Heidi Klum | 'Secret' Video

The new Seal and supermodel wife Heidi Klum ‘Secret’ video will unloosen more than a few tongues with its provocative beauty.

Not only is the video a gorgeous tribute to sexual intimacy between husband and wife, it oozes sensuality in every caress. ‘Secret’ reminds us that sensual touch is critical to erotic connections and help differentiate erotica from pornography, where there’s no time for meaningful touching. via Sensuality News

‘Secret’ is part of Seal’s new ‘Seal 6: Commitment’ album and explores the deep sensuality that cements the couple’s relationship in the power of touch. This example of New Eroticism voyeurism is a blessed lesson plan for us all.

What's the Beef? Crystal Renn's 'Festin' Vogue Paris Oct 2010 Images

Updated on Thu, September 30, 2010 by Registered CommenterAnne

Crystal Renn’s manga editorial ‘Festin’ (translated banquet) for Vogue Paris October 2010 anniversary edition is a brilliant example of Carine Roitfeld’s mind at work. I’m not sure that the jewels survive the food setup, but the photos are a visual metaphor for Renn’s own relationship with food and the reality that the world is getting fatter.

The images, shot by Terry Richardson who is the new king of shooting bull with these photos coming right after his Lady Gaga series of her beef bikini, are also a statement on Modern values versus the emerging Cultural Creative ones.

In reality, the ultimate Modern values woman is actually the size 0 who will never indulge in food to excess. However, if the object of her affection is shoes, baubles or luxury in almost any other form, the Modern woman seeks excess in her life.

Are Joshua Petker's Modern Women Apart From Their Sensuality?

Los-Angeles-based artist Joshua Petker returns to The Shooting Gallery in San Francisco for his fouth solo exhibition “We’re Not As Colorful As We Think We Are”, running until Oct. 2, 2010.

Petker’s works, self-described as strongly reminiscent of Gustav Klimt’s turn of the century portraits of women, consist of 12-18 small to medium pieces rendered in both mixed media on canvas and gouache and ink on paper.

Women figures remain the medium by which Joshua Petker communicates the universality of color in manipulating physical appearance.

His art is strongly modern, suspending his female figures between intense color spaces of monochrome, liberating them from the confines of everyday life but not from gender. Consequently, his women characters may not be in touch with their inner sensations, divorced from themselves by the dictates of custom and culture.

Reality Check | Marion Cotillard, Edita Vilkeviciute, Guinevere van Seenus, Lizzie Miller

Usually I try to stay with substance and not superficialities, but it’s newsworthy when Marion Cotillard appears unretouched on the cover of Italian Vanity Fair.

The move for authenticity is real among Smart Sensuality women like Cotillard, who makes her own statement about natural, one reinforced by her extensive environmental comments to Nicole Kidman in the August 2010 issue of Interview.  The French actress who appeared in “Nine” with Kidman, is trying to save an ancient forest in the Congo.

It’s been a good day for ‘real’ women, although not every photographer agrees that women shouldn’t be retouched to death. The tool has reduced beautiful women to plasticized Barbie dolls, with skin no man or woman would want to touch in real life.

Some artists and their muses are saying ‘enough’.

Edita Vilkeviciute | Camilla Akrans | Numero #117

A negative comment about the real-life lines around Edita Vilkeviciute’s eyes launched aggressive dialogue about why she required retouching in the first place, with at least one young photographer asking why then bother with a stylist, makeup artists or any professionals, if the intention wasn’t to make the woman perfect.

Indonesia on France Burqa Ban | Islam's Fashion Complexity

(Note: all images are from Harper’s Bazaar Indonesia, August 2010, ‘The Art of Party’; photographer Nicoline Patricia Malina. Remaining credits at Fashionising.com.)

Islamic authorities in Asia warned that the decision of French lawmakers to ban full-face veils — burqas — could spark a terrorist backlash.

The top Islamic body in Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim- majority country, said Tuesday’s burqa vote violated French ideals on human rights.

“Middle Eastern Muslim women wear full-face veils as part of their culture and religious belief,” Amidhan, the chair of the Indonesia Ulema Council, said. The country is home to roughly 200 million Muslims.

Amidhan clarified at the same time that few women in Indonesia wear full-face veils. “We disagree with the law but it’s not much of an issue for us here. We’re quite far away and Muslim women in Indonesia don’t wear full-face veils.” via The Jakarta Globe. Muslim leaders in Indonesia reasserted the fact that the burqa was worn largely in desert areas and is part of tribal culture, not Islamic law.

When Most Fertile, Women Often Prefer Low-Stress Men

Ok Corral, Tombstone, ArizonaIf you’re looking for a husband and imagine children in your future, you may be a woman who prefers ‘chill’ guys.

Science has assumed that from an evolutionary perspective, women prefer high-testosterone men. Presumably more testosterone equals higher-quality sperm and a greater income-earning capacity.

Stronger, Marlboro Man guys are better able to survive a shoot out at the Ok Corral, protecting us little women when we are most vulnerable and in a family way.

Fast forward to the modern age, when we know a bit more about high testosterone men. The truth is that they aren’t necessarily the best parents, and may lead a “player’s” lifestyle.

Will Healthy BMI French Moms Have Smarter Kids than US Moms?

Updated on Tue, September 28, 2010 by Registered CommenterAnne

Mothers breastfeeding their babies in Paris, France, Sunday, Oct. 11, 2008, during a worldwide breastfeeding event. Many French women gathered in Paris, joining other women in other countries, in a bid to raise worldwide awareness of the benefits of breastfeeding babies, as part of the World Breastfeeding Week.In America the only discussion about a mother’s responsibility to her unborn child comes mainly from the pro-life movement. When the topic is a fertilized egg, women often run a gauntlet of taunts and waving placards in many US cities, just to obtain the legal medical services available to them as pregnant women.

As long as the fertilized egg stays safely embedded in the mother’s womb, America doesn’t care so much about maternal health or the mother’s responsibility to bear a healthy baby. Being Americans, the idea that our babies are doomed in advance to a series of health problems and a shrinking brain is not a pill we’re inclined to swallow.

Can you imagine a scene in America, like the one of French women breastfeeding in Paris in 2008? President Clinton signed the Treasury Postal Appropriations bill, which included Rep. Maloney’s Right to Breastfeed Act, into law in 1999.
