Looking forward, looking back

My film debut was June 26, 1974. A few days ago, I celebrated my 34th birthday.

Many people, old and young, have expressed their birthday wishes to me at my parties, through this blog, and on my MySpace and Facebook pages.

But it’s I who must thank them. For keeping me alive on screens big and small. For keeping my spirit alive by living life to the fullest, embracing their beauty and their bodies, and by never feeling ashamed by their sexual feelings.

Whether you discovered me in a theater in Paris that first summer, or on cable TV in the 80’s, or on DVD in this new century, thank you for staying with me and following my adventures.

My story hasn’t ended. A lot has changed since 1974, but romance and beauty are two ideals that will never disappear. And I will continue to embody those values in a new series of films and a new site coming later this year.

Like all birthdays, I’ve used the occasion to look back at my accomplishments.

But I’m also looking ahead at what’s to come — and I love what I see.

Mailbag

I’ve received a number of emails from all over the world, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to respond to a few of them.

Helena from North Hollywood, California asked where to find my films. There are a lot of them, from the 1974 original to home video releases in the 21st century. You can catch me on Cinemax or buy most of my DVD’s on Amazon. And remember, my name has two M’s and two L’s — any other spelling is an impostor!

Philippe from Calais, France asked a lot of questions. The best was, “What was the strangest time or place you met a future boyfriend?”
Possibly at college. Our mascot was a wildcat, and members of the football team took turns taking care of it. One day I was studying by myself, out in a field on the far corner of campus, and saw this thing run by; the cat was out! His handler came rushing after it, and begged me to help him.  Using candy as bait, we coaxed it back into its cage. The guy thanked me and introduced himself as a wide receiver on the team. We were together for the whole school year. How’s that for a first date — wrangling a cougar?

Shovana from Columbus, Ohio, asked, “I look at models and feel ugly and fat. You say that every woman is beautiful in her own way, but do you actually believe that?”
Standards of beauty are always changing. Models are stick-thin today, but just 30 years ago, Cheryl Tiegs and Farrah Fawcett had wonderfully womanly curves. In the 80’s, big, blow-dried, over-sprayed hair was considered gorgeous; now we laugh at it. Since the trends come and go, why try to keep up? Decide what you want to be and become that, not for the people on the street or the men in your life, but for you.

Toshiya from Nagano, Japan asked, “I’ve been a fan of yours since the 80’s. Are you really coming back?”
I am. Right now there’s a worldwide search for the next Emmanuelle to star in a whole new series of films. And later this year, I’ll be launching a sex and romance site where you can share your experiences, post photos, get advice, and watch original erotic videos.

I love getting mail!  You can write to me at emmanuellemanor@gmail.com, on Facebook, or on MySpace.

Have you seen me?

Emmanuelle in Space

I’ve traveled the world, and beyond, in my erotic escapades. Where have I been? Here are just a few places:

  • The sun-drenched beaches of the Mediterranean
  • The classic elegance of Eastern Europe
  • Glamorous Hollywood (of course)
  • Rio de Janeiro
  • Space
  • Bangkok (my first time!)

And soon I’ll be coming right to your home with my new website.
