Brooke Shields & Calvins: Naive or Complicit Sexualized Teen

Vogue posted on its YouTube channel "Brooke Shields Tells the Story Behind Her 80's Calvin Klein Jeans Campaign" (Oct 28, 2021). In the video, Shields shared that, unsurprisingly, no extras were allowed on the set and that Richard Avedon, the photographer, was nervous:

"The shoot itself, nobody was allowed on the set [...] I think he [Avedon] was a bit nervous." 

Unbelievably, Shields said that she was naive about the sexual nature of the "Nothing Comes Between Me & My Calvins" video, and she mentioned her body double in Blue Lagoon to justify her naiveté:

"I was naive. I didn't think anything of it. I didn't think it was - [it] had to do with underwear. I didn't think it was sexual in nature [...] I was a kid. And where I was - I was naive. I was a very protected, sequestered kind of young woman [...] in Blue Lagoon I had a body double [for the completely nude scenes]."

Interestingly, Shields thanked Harpers Bazaar for naming her 14-year-old topless Blue Lagoon swimsuit scene iconic. Body double? 

Brooke Shields | Pretty Baby (1978)

And are we to assume that Shields didn't realize that her role as a pre-teen prostitute in Pretty Baby (1978)where her virginity was sold for a whopping $400, was not of a sexual nature. 

Although, Shields claims that she was naive at 15, at 56 she appears to condone the Calvin advertisements by admitting that (teen) sex sells:

"Yeah, at 56, I can go back and look at the camera, and say, "Oh well it's zooming in. And yeah, it's sort of on my crotch area. And then it comes to my face." Like, okay, but sex has sold since the dawn of time." 

As for her second contradiction, Shields reminded the viewers that there was something in her eyes on her magazine covers, but then she states that at 15, she was sans sexuality. 

"Every single cover I've been on, I don't care it I was 15 or whatever, there's something in the eyes."

"And there is an assimilation of sexuality now, which I certainly didn't have when I was 15."

Wait, what about Shield's 13-year-old "womanly" bikini pose in Life magazine that was written about in the Vanity Fair piece "The Photo That Changed My Life". 

And I won't mention Richard Prince’s Spiritual America exhibit at the Guggenheim where a photograph of a nude 10-year-old Shields was on display. (Interestingly,  Shields' mothers sold the photograph to Playboy Press for a whopping $450.)

Lastly, Shields admitted that, due to the allure appeal of nymphets, her Calvin campaign was "extremely successful", she admitted that Avedon and Klein "knew exactly what they were doing", and she shared that her Calvin campaign was life changing for her and Klein. #rightplacerighttime:

"The campaign was extremely successful."

"There's an appeal to it that is so undeniable. And they tapped right into it. You know, they knew exactly what they were doing."

"[...] he [Calvin Klein] said it changed his entire career and life. And it put Calvin on the map [...] which was what I think they had hoped for it."

"He said, 'You know, you changed the course of my life and my career.' And I said, 'Well, you did mine too.' We were in the right place at the right time."

BBC's COPPER: (Pre)Teen Prostitution & Sexual Exploitation in 1860s New York

IMDb didn't share much about the BBC America's Copper (2012) series: "In the 1860s, an Irish-American Civil War veteran joins the New York City police force." 

One can cull a bit more from Copper's Wikipedia page:

The series centers on Kevin "Corky" Corcoran, an Irish immigrant police detective trying to keep the peace in the historical Five Points neighborhood, in 1860s New York City. 

But, IMDb and Wikipedia failed to mention that Copper explores (pre) teen prostitution in 1860s New York City

For example, the pilot opened with Detective Kevin Corcoran gifting Annie, a famished pre-teen prostitute, a cold boiled egg. In response, Annie asked the detective, "Would you like me to pleasure?" Able to resist the allure of a nymphet, Detective Corcoran replied, "No. Child. I don't want that."

Subsequently, Kate, Annie's twin sister, was found dead with jasmine combed through her hair and her vigina filled with semen, but Kate was deflowered after she was killed. 

Annie was found by Detective Kevin Corcoran with a john when the detective gave Annie the news that her twin had been murdered. 

In the second episode, Annie told Detective Corcoran that after John Reilly, her father, died, Contessa Pompidou took her and Kate in because "a certain kind of gentlemen would pay a high price for girls" Annie's age. Annie said, "10 days I was a prisoner."

With the help of an African American physician, Detective Kevin Corcoran was able to deduce that Winfred Haverford, an aristocrat, killed Kate, but a police cover up prevented Haverford from being charged with a crime. 

Later we learned from Annie that John Reilly wasn't her father, but that he was her husband whom she married when she was 10! 

Annie: "My mom left me and Kate with Mr. Reilly when I was 9. When I turned 10, he married me. Claimed it was the law of the land and I had to."

Detective Kevin Corcoran: "The laws says, a girl can consent to marry a man when she's 10-years-old. The law doesn't force a girl to marry. "

Annie: "That's what Contessa said. She said instead, I could have a warm room in her house with chocolates for doing the same things Mr. Reilly made me do."

And we know from Mary E. Odem's Delinquent Daughters that until 1897 the age of consent in California and in most states was 10.

Ultimately, Detective Corcoran promised to protect Annie, but a prostitute betrayed the detective for $100 and took Annie back to Contessa Pompidou to be prepped for Winfred Haverford.  

Annie may or may not have preferred to be a nymphet prostitute, but we can infer that she did prefer to be an independent slash street teen prostitute over working in the Contessa's brothel - despite the warmth and chocolates.

Rammstein's "Rosenrot": A Monk & Romanian Teen's Sexual Affair

Rosenrot (2005) was Rammstein's fifth studio album, and "Rosenrot" ("Rose-red") was the third song on the German album. The video for "Rosenrot" premiered on MTV Germany.

Interestingly, "Rosenrot" is about a man who tragically attempts to fulfill the request of his lover to fetch a rose from a mountain. 

However, the video, set in Romania, is about an age-gap relationship between a monk (vocalist Till Lindemann) and a village girl (14-year-old Romanian model Cătălina Lavric) whom the monk eyes at a feast. 

Instead of requesting a rose from a mountain, the nymphet requested that the monk kill her parents. Unable to resist the allure of a Romanian nymphet, after sleeping under the nymphet's bed and the nymphet caresing the monk with a rose, the monk fulfilled the request only to be burned at the stake by the villagers - upon the nymphets request. 

We've seen this monk slash nymphet theme slash motif in a number of movies like The Monk (2011) and The Night of the Iguana (1964).

'Best Booty Ever': Teen Spandex Volleyball Shorts | Why?

GNBV 14U Gold Finals
Hendrickson & Snipes v. Adishian & Le Blanc

Previously, we wrote a post about European teen handballers competing in (cheeky) bikinis and a post about the super short skirts of French ball girls and teen tennis players. 

Now the question is: Why do (most) [teen] beach volleyball players choose to compete in (cheeky) bikinis? 

Unlike in handball, it doesn't appear that wearing a (cheeky) bikinis is mandatory. For example, in the GNBV 14U Gold Finals (Nov 7, 2020), Hendrickson & Snipes choose to compete in (cheeky) bikinis, but Adishian & Le Blanc competed in (non-spandex) shorts.

As for indoor volleyball, (most) [teen] players compete in spandex volleyball shorts. Why?

Mandy MS posted "Why Are Volleyball Shorts so Short and Tight?" (APR 9, 2020) on How They Play. Mandy wrote that, due to the popularity of spandex, volleyball players switched from non-spandex shorts to spandex in the 1970s but not to sexualize nymphet volleyball players:

[Volleyball] didn't become a widespread college and high school level sport until the 70s after the NAIA and NCAA had introduced it as a varsity level sport.

As the synthetic material spandex became more popular in the late 1970s, many teams started switching over to spandex as part of their uniform. Both in the United States and internationally, women were wearing what was commonly referred to as "bun huggers" with greater frequency. 

Despite what many may have you believe. The shorts were not chosen with a desire to sexualize your daughters or to add sex appeal and spectators to the sport. The shorts were chosen for comfort and practicality.

Do you believe that the switch to spandex "bun huggers" was for for comfort and practicality and not to sexualize volleyball players? #rhetoricalquestion

Interestingly, Aeropostale sells the Best Booty Ever Solid Volleyball Shorts in the website's Girls Bottoms section. The teen volleyball shorts are described as: Booty Enhancing | Contoured seaming and feminine ruching on the back. 

St. Francis versus Palo Alto High School

But Mandy didn't explain why (some) [teen] volleyball players congratulate their teammates with a slap on their spandex "bun huggers". Take for example the 2011 St. Francis versus Palo Alto High School volleyball game where numbers 6, 13 and 14 seemed to be particularly fond of congratulating each other via checking, clasping, and clutching cheeks. 

But we do know why (some) [teen] volleyball players display their spandex "bun huggers" on TikTok. #likes #comments #follows

The Cut Sex Diaries: New York College Student Sugar Baby


New York's The Cut Sex Diaries feature, "The College Student Starting to Fall for Her Sugar Daddy" (OCT. 3, 2021), is about 21-year-old college student slash sugar baby slash part-time prostitute. 

DAY ONE

After her Russian lecture, the sugar baby had a date with N, an affectionate and validating wealthy 45-year-old, whom she met on a sugar-daddy website.
10:00 p.m. "I love pining for his affection and validation, and he likes being seen with a younger girl."

12:30 a.m. He orders me another tequila Sprite and then we walk back to his new apartment, smoking a joint and a cigarette along the way. Then I’m standing in front of his bed and he kisses me and pushes me onto the comforter. Soon enough he’s fingering me, then I’m going down on him, and eventually start riding him. Afterwards I sleep over, satisfied with the night.
DAY TWO

The next morning the coed shared that, despite their age-gap, she craved texts from N, she "badly" wanted him to "fuck" her, and "maybe" take care of her.
7:00 a.m. When I wake up, N tells me that before we went to sleep I curled up right next to him, which he calls “endearing.” I stay awake for an hour and think about how much I’m projecting onto him — how much I crave texts from him and how badly I want him to fuck me and take me to dinner and maybe just take care of me, which is the worst of all. Also, I’m hungover as fuck.

DAY THREE

While at the library, the coed received a text from an investment banker - whom we'll assume the coed met on the sugar-daddy website as well. They've held hands during sex:

1:00 p.m. I finally head to the library to get some reading done. While I’m there, this investment banker texts me asking if I have plans for Friday. I’ve been sleeping with him for a few months now, and it’s been getting weirdly intimate — last time, we held hands while he fucked me. I keep telling my friends I want him to want to date me, but we all know I like the idea of a boyfriend better than the reality of monogamy. I take a few hours to respond. 

Due to a bit of ennui, the coed had an orgasm in her dorm room via a vibrator and thoughts of N: 

5:00 p.m. I’m bored in my room so I use my vibrator. I come thinking about N

Lastly, as it relates to this blog, after meeting an NYU student for drinks, our coed got a text from M, a "[...] man is high up at a massive media conglomerate [...]", whom pays the coed to watch him masturbate. Consequently, she's "[...] excited by the opportunity to make a few hundred dollars."

10:00 p.m. I take the train down to the East Village and meet my friend from NYU for drinks. We go to some dive bar and drink beer and mezcal. While we’re there, M’s name pops up on my phone. This man is high up at a massive media conglomerate, and he once paid me to go to his apartment, snort his coke, tell him about my sex life, and get on all fours while he jerked off. I haven’t heard from him in months, and I’m excited by the opportunity to make a few hundred dollars.

Famous Age Gap Couple: Ryan Seacrest (46) & Audrey Paige (23)

 

Vera and Stark posted on the Daily Mail (12 October 2021) that Live with Kelly and Ryan host 46-year-old Ryan Seacrest is in an age-gap relationship with social media influencer slash model 23-year-old Audrey Paige. Per Vera and Stark, the age-gap couple went public in June.

Ryan Seacrest (46) & Audrey Paige (23) on the UES

Unlike 37-year-old Scott Disick who just got out of an age-gap affair with 19-year-old Amelia Gray Hamlin, Seacrest hasn't received any (open) backlash. 

Interestingly, like Seacrest and Paige, some celebrity age-gap couples, like 44-year-old Leo DiCaprio and 22-year-old Camila Morrone and 82-year-old Hef & the 19-year-old Shannon Twins, appear to be condoned.

LAW & ORDER: SVU | A Catholic Church Teen Prostitution Ring

Here's IMDb's summary for Law & Order: SVU "Manhattan Transfer" (s17e17):

While SVU investigates a pair of vice cops found in the middle of an underage prostitution sting involving high-ranking public officials, the team discovers that a priest may be involved in a high school sex trafficking ring.

Near the beginning of the episode, Officer Benson shared with ADA Barba that SVU raided an upscale teen prostitution party:
Officer Benson: "We responded to a tip that underage girls would be at a sex party and in attendance was Bronx ADA Winn, two assemblymen, a retired D.A. investigator, a councilman, and I'm sure that you recognize."

ADA Barba: "Judge Wheeler. Why am I not surprised?"

Nina Kelly, a nun, was at the sex party too. As well as, detectives Russo and Jefferson. Sister Kelly was working undercover to breakup the teen prostitution ring. Detectives Russo and Jefferson were supposed to be working undercover to breakup the teen prostitution ring, but they couldn't resist the allure of nymphets. 

Cara, a 16-year-old prostitute and student at St. Fabiola's - an all-girl's parochial high school in the South Bronx, alleged that detectives Russo and Jefferson would arrive early to the sex parties and force her and other nymphets to perform oral sex. 

And of detectives Russo and Jefferson, Sister Kelly confessed: "They're not cops. They're rapists."

Interestingly, Officer Benson opined that the girls were victims of [statutory] rape and were sex trafficked, but Captain Gerbic rebutted that that girls were not victims but were willing teen prostitutes. 

Officer Benson: "But underage girls are still being [statutory] raped and trafficked."

Captain Gerbic: "Well, where SVU sees victims, we see willing participants. These girls are not exactly madonnas."

In what we view as a bit of racism slash classism, BX9, a south Bronx based street gang, were initially suspected of running the teen prostitution ring. 

But we learned in episode 18, "Unholiest Alliance", that the prostitution ring was operated by Bishop Catalano, Monsignor Mulregan and Father Eugene - for over 20 years. 

The "Unholiest Alliance" of the Catholic Church procured and provided teen prostitutes to ADAs, assemblymen, D.A. investigators, councilmen, lawyers and judges - to name a few. 

And the "Unholiest Alliance" couldn't resist the allure of nymphets too. We learned from former nymphets that Bishop Catalano and Monsignor Mulregan made Catholic schoolgirls sit on their laps - in the nude. The schoolgirls were touched in a[n] "[un]G_dly manner". And they were made to pose naked and "perform sex acts" on the Bishop and Monsignor.

Lastly, in another bit of racism slash classism, the episodes stressed that the teen prostitutes were from the south Bronx, but let us not forget that teen prostitutes can be from the UES and Rome's wealthiest district too.

Anaïs Nin's LITTLE BIRDS: Highbrow Schoolgirl & Teen Erotica

Here's Amazon's description of Anaïs Nin's Little Birds:

From the beach towns of Normandy to the streets of New Orleans, these thirteen vignettes introduce us to a covetous French painter, a sleepless wanderer of the night, a guitar-playing gypsy, and a host of others who yearn for and dive into the turbulent depths of romantic experience.

Little Birds is not only the title of the book, but "Little Birds" is the title of the first erotic story where Manuel, a poor artist and exhibitionist, used little birds to attract schoolgirls to his apartment. 

Manuel and Thérèse, his trapeze artist wife, found an apartment with light for painting and with a terrace that was across the street from a school. Coincidentally, the schoolgirls had recess in the yard below Manuel's terrace. Consequently: 

"He was taken with a slight trembling, like that of a man anticipating great pleasures."

"He looked down for a moment at the little girls playing, watching their legs under the fluttering skirts. How they fell upon each other in games, how their hair flew behind as they ran! Their tiny breasts were already beginning to show in their very plumpness."

"The schoolyard was animated. To Manuel it was an orgy of legs and very short skirts, which revealed white panties during games. He was growing feverish, standing there among his birds [...]"

To attract the nymphets, Manuel filled the terrace with "birds of every kind and called, "Why don't you come up and see?"

"[F]our little girls of all sizes-one with long blond hair [...]" accepted Manuel's invitation. And while the schoolgirls were admiring the birds, Manuel went to "pee". 

"He left the door of the toilet open so that they could see him. Only one of them, the shy one, turned her face and fixed her eyes on him. Manuel had his back to the girls but looked over his shoulder too see if they were watching him. When he noticed the shy girl, with the enormous eyes, she glanced away."

On the subsequent, and presumably last, visit of the schoolgirls, Manuel donned a kimono.

"Manuel stood behind the girls. Suddenly his kimono opened, and when he found himself touching long blond hair, he lost his head. Instead of wrapping his kimono, he opened it wider, and as the girls turned they all saw him standing there in a trance, his big penis erect, pointing at them. They all took fright, like little birds, and ran away."

"Runaway", the last story in Little Birds, is very similar to Henry Miller's In Quiet Days in Clichy, where Joey and Carl, both writers, shared an apartment Clichy, France. Carl brought home Colette, a fifteen-year-old runaway:

Carl said, "[...] I brought a girl home with me --- a waif. She can't be more than fourteen. I just gave her a lay. Did you hear me? I hope I didn't knock her up. She's a virgin."

And a number of the other erotic stories in Little Birds is peppered with nympholopsy. For example, in "Two Sisters", Dorothy and Edna were from a well-to-do family in Maryland: 

"[...] their father, with his eyes wet and brilliant, liked to take the girls on his knees, slip his hand under their little dresses and caress them."

In "A [16-year-old] Model", a nude model shared that she gets shivers when men look at her:

"I love it. Ever since I was a little girl I liked taking off my clothes. I liked to see how people looked at me. I used to take off my clothes at parties, as soon as people were a little drunk. I liked showing my body. Now I can't wait to take them off. I enjoy being looked at. It gives me pleasure. I get shivers of pleasure right down my back when men look at me."

And in "Saffron", the reader is introduced to Fay:

"Fay had been born in New Orleans. When she was sixteen she was courted by a man of forty whom she had always liked for his aristocracy and distinction." 

Of Anaïs Nin, Newsweek opined: "One of contemporary literature's most important writers."

BIRDS OF PARADISE (2021): Teen Lipstick Lesbian Ballerinas in Paris

Here's the Movie Info for Amazon's Birds of Paradise (2021) from Rotten Tomatoes:

Kate Sanders is an ambitious and gifted [...] aspiring ballerina from Virginia who, because of her low-income status, is given a scholarship to attend a prestigious ballet school in Paris, France. Upon arriving at the cutthroat, internationally-renowned institution, her confidence and emotional fortitude are tested by a beautiful, mysterious fellow dancer, Marine Durand, who recently lost her [twin] brother (and dance partner) to suicide. While confrontational at first, Kate and Marine’s relationship evolves into an emotionally-charged, competitive union beset by lies, sexual awakening [...] as they risk everything to win the school’s ultimate prize: a contract to join the Opéra national de Paris.
It turns out that Marine Durand's (Kristine Froseth) brother committed suicide (off camera) after their mother caught him and his sister while home on summer holiday (off camera). 

Marine said that she and her brother were "rehearsing", but their mother thought that they were in an passionate incentious embrace. And the mother blamed Marine whom shared with with Kate Sanders (Diana Silvers): 
"She hates me. I don't blame her. It was my fault. [...] She screamed. So loud. And she pulled us apart, and she slapped me."

IRL, Diana Silvers is 23, but she could pass for 18, which is her age in Birds of Paradise; therefore, how about some teen ballerina lipstick lesbianism in exchange for some streams. After some ballet but before a threesome with a ballerino, Kate and Marine engage is some passionate caressing and kissing. 


And while at a fête à Paris, to her mother's displeasure, Marine shared a flute of champagne, caressed, and flirted with a daper (upper) middle-aged man. Teleiophile

Jeannette Catsoulis wrote in her New York Times review (Sept. 23, 2021):
"[...] [cinematographer] Shaheen Seth’s camera roams once more over bodies in motion, giving their gracefulness a chilling edge that tells us however beautiful the dance, it’s inseparable from the ugliness beneath."

Diana Silvers in Booksmart (2019)

Lastly, Birds of Paradise is adapted from A.K. Small’s YA novel Bright Burning Stars. And Birds of Paradise (2021) wasn't Diana Silvers' first teen lipstick lesbian scene. Previously, she had a teen sex scene in Booksmart (2019) where she was (mistakingly) fingered - anally!

AMERICAN HORROR STORY: Teen Kaia Gerber's (Ironic) Student Teacher Sex Scene

As it relates to this blog, it's sufficient to post that part 2 of American Horror Story: Double Feature is about aliens impregnating humans. 

What's more relevant to the allure of nymphets is that in season 10 episode 7, Kendall Carr (Kaia Gerber), a 22-year-old Harvard student, shared with her friends from high school that she was having a sexual affair with her "50 Years of Technology" bearded Harvard professor. 

"He was brilliant. So, I asked if I could pick his brain after class." [I added emphasis to "pick his brain", because there was a flashback to Kendall and her professor having sex in Kendall's dorm room below a Harvard pennant."

Prior to Kendall oversharing, Cal Cambon, a 21-year-old Princeton student, informed Kendall and the crew that he regretted doing summer internships, because most of time he was fetching coffee for Congressmen with nymphet girlfriends. 

"Why did I say yes to those internships wasting my summers away getting coffee for douchebag Facebook execs and Congressmen with 16-year-old girlfriends."

We're shocked that Gerber accepted the role of Kendall Carr, because, after Gerber's age-gap affair with Pete Davidson ended, she appeared to be anti-age-gap affairs. (Gerber was 18 and Davidson was 26.)

Unsurprisingly, American Horror Story and American Horror Stories: Rubber (Wo)man have taken full advantage of Gerber's teen* allure. For example, in addition to her coed-professor sex scene, she has been a teen lipstick lesbian, shown in a sheer teddy and, for the pleasure of men with teen foot fetishes, a close-up of Gerber's manicured feet were displayed.

Kaia Gerber in American Horror Stories Rubber (Wo)man

* Gerber turned 20 on the 3rd of September; thus, she was a teen when American Horror Story: Double Feature and American Horror StoriesRubber (Wo)man were filmed. 


Interestingly, per Teen Vogue, Gerber has watched American Horror Story religiously. And she filmed her audition tape with her famous mother, but it was "a little bit uncomfortable", because it was scene between Ruby and Scarlett - the nubile lipstick lesbians. 
“Half of my life I've spent religiously watching American Horror Story,” Kaia told Entertainment Tonight in a recent interview. “I've seen every season, and I know how all the different storylines connect.”

Kaia also recounted details of her American Horror Stories audition, noting that she didn’t try out for the role in-person, but rather filmed a taped audition at home…with her mom, Cindy Crawford. 

As for filming with her mom, well. “As you can imagine, [it was] a little bit uncomfortable to do with my mom,” Kaia shared with ET, explaining that she read a scene between Ruby and her love interest, Scarlett. “But she was trooper and helped me a lot.”
