Thanks to RTL television in Germany, I was able to watch my favorite movies every Saturday night. One of the first ones was the original Emmanuelle movies from the early 70s. The story about a newly wed woman accompanying her husband to Asia, where they start their sexual exploration. I'm a big fan of soft sex movies since I was 12 years old. And I can honestly thank Sylvia Kristel, Laura Gemser and probably Oswald Kolle too, for giving me a healthy lesson about sexuality. Because before private television networks started in Germany sexual content was only available in special video rental stores. Even the softest ones. Thanks to the sexual revolution in the 70s masterpieces like the first Emmanuelle movie were made. Not just low budget porn.
Personally I still think it's a shame governments allow people to be killed in any type of way 24 hours on almost every channel. But in most countries it is forbidden to show sex scenes or even nudity. WHAT HARM DOES SEX BRING TO THE WORLD? Think about it...
Rest in beauty Sylvia Kristel. You will never be forgotten as long as your fans live.
