A Hint of Nipple

I've always been a Jane Birkin fan because she marched to the beat of her own drum and inspired the world around her. 

And I love this picture - the expression on her face and the hint of nipple.  Photo by Pierre Fizet 1974.

Jane with partner Serge here. How IRONIC that Je t'aime... moi non plus, "the ultimate love song" is now mainly known as thoroughly de-eroticized instrumental "elevator" muzak!

When in college, one of the eight students sharing our dormitory apartment every day incessantly played the song, then not many years old. This was a real mystery to me: He was a wealthy Iranian ChemE major with his own Trans Am, and had a different beautiful girl in his room every weekend. I can only suppose that none of them had any talent as a singer, LOL!

BTW, Jane performed live in DC a few years ago and overtly expressed graitude that so many Americans remembered her after all these years.

Were you still a single lady, I'd propose that one day we together watch the recent biopic Gainsbourg, vie héroïque. But hey, maybe your husband is a Birkin fan too! :-) You can check out a couple scenes from the film hereduring the first of which an ersatz Bebe lets Jane know terpsichoreally, that for now, she considers Serge HER VERY OWN "cabbage-head" man!

Have you and Betty ever considered curating a film series in Manhattan, presenting material before, and answering questions after, the movie which is shown? I bet you'd get lots more participants than for genital show & tell, and numbers could help offset the greatly reduced per capita financial margins. Does the Museum of Sex have a theater space for events like this?
