Miss France 2007 – Provocative and Suggestive

I want to wish my fellow bloggers a Happy New Year and a bright and productive blog future!

Sorry about the title but the only way to get a blog noticed is to use provocative and suggestive words.

The Blog


Twenty two year old Miss France 2007, Valerie Begue, was in some hot water recently when a photo of her licking condensed milk in a suggestive manner was published. She almost lost her crown because of the scandal but not before driving the share prices of condensed milk companies through the lid. Her stocks didn’t do too badly either.


I am not too interested in the pictures, mainly because there was no nudity and only suggestiveness. Valerie Begue was threatened with disqualification for this three year old milk-lick photo and I find it unfair since there is no other way to lick condensed milk from a rock other than suggestively. Try it. The condensed milk shot wasn’t the only photo published and there was one where Miss Begue was wearing a bikini in a crucifixion-like pose, on a crucifix and ignorant of the fact that the pose was patented many years ago.


The pageant rules are strict and forbid contestants from appearing in any nude or provocative photos. Rules are rules and if someone decides to enter a competition then they must abide by them. As irritated as the general public is over these strict regulations people must remember there is a certain amount of feminine purity that the pageant is trying to promote. Yes, contestants do appear in skimpy swimsuits during the competition but that is not considered provocative or even suggestive. Appearing in these swimsuits is considered alluring and to allure is not as bad as to suggest. The penalty for breaking the pageant rules is disqualification and a modeling contract with either Playboy or Penthouse.

Purity may not be the only reason for the nudity and suggestive manner clause but also organizers do not want the pageant to be overrun by nudity scandals rather they want the public to focus on the many hidden talents of the contestants that are trapped under layers of physical beauty and makeup.

I seriously doubt the main aim of any contestant is to save the children, whales, manatee or Brunswick Sardines. The main aim of any contestant is to win or else why enter. After winning, the next aim is to appear in thousands of photographs in as many publications worldwide. After goals one and two are met the winner then goes after sponsors and millionaires. If schedules permit, then Miss So and So would endorse a worthy charitable foundation responsible for saving whatever can be saved in full public view.

  1. She is wild young lady imatitating Jesus Christ crucified on the cross. What a hell she did it with herself. She is wasting her time and good opportunity being a beauty queen in France.

    Hope she will change her attitude and be a role model in young generation.

  2. i see nothing wrong with her pics, not like she is nude, hell the bikinis the women wear in the contests are skimpy too

  3. Does anyone remember that Vanessa Williams lost her Miss America crown years ago because of some scandalous photos. She is still around and very successful as an actress (Ugly Betty) . Can anyone tell me the name of the woman who was Miss America in her place that year?


  4. You are right, I don’t remember who won when Vanessa Williams was disqualified. I think most beauty queens are not memorable people because they are so much like each other. Sometimes it is the bad things which can make us good and even better.

  5. I would go so far as to suggest that licking anything is suggestive by definition… I’d like someone to demonstrate non-suggestive licking, please.

    Anyway, that was an interesting experiment there, akalol. I once got over 300 hits on one day and I later found out it was because I posted a pic of hunky Jamie Bamber and some fan site linked to it.

  6. Concepts of beauty and sexual allure have always fascinated me. Especially since there is a cultural difference, and beauty and sexual performance don’t generally go hand in hand.
    As for the competition, it clearly stands for nothing. After removing women who have been pregnant and married from competing , (in the name of “feminine purity”?) removing someone for provocative photos makes no sense. Or have they changed the marriage/child regulation? The competition doesn’t stand for anything either way, isn’t that obvious to everyone?

  7. Liane, the old saying that sex, whether implied or in licking form, sells is even more true today. Surely guys don’t hang around the gym just to pick up their wives and girlfriends, or other people’s wives and girlfriends. It is for the suggestive sights. Similarly, people don’t hang around an ice cream parlor to see people eat frozen yogurt with a spoon. It is the cones they are are after 🙂

    Laurazee, I agree that all “beauty” competitions are bogus and pretentious but some people are willing to go along with the charade. The women who win these competitions are too inert and fake to generate any real interest in the modern and real world. That is why these competitions go unnoticed unless there is something brewing called a scandal. These competitions are saying that once a woman becomes pregnant and has a child she is no longer worthy and cannot be considered a beauty. Rubbish. I suppose a competition like Miss Universe can be renamed Miss Virgin Universe and ice cream cones and condensed milk banned from the competition area.

  8. Spicer’s Theory of Lick Provoctivity holds true with <a href=”http://video.google.com/url?docid=-1046717740361696142&esrc=sr1&ev=v&len=132&q=flagpole%2Bchristmas%2Bstory&srcurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D8XlPwsmkPHI&vidurl=%2Fvideoplay%3Fdocid%3D-1046717740361696142%26q%3Dflagpole%2Bchristmas%2Bstory%26total%3D3%26start%3D0%26num%3D100%26so%3D0%26type%3Dsearch%26plindex%3D0&usg=AL29H21Q5dkydEmifOhwFU5kVB-odtfg1A”one exception.

  9. I intended to post you the very small observation to help thank you so much again for these extraordinary pointers you have contributed on this page. It was really wonderfully open-handed of you to provide extensively all a few people would’ve offered for sale as an electronic book to make some profit for themselves, mostly considering the fact that you might well have done it in case you considered necessary. These things likewise acted as a easy way to be sure that someone else have the identical dream just like my very own to know a great deal more on the topic of this issue. Certainly there are some more pleasant periods ahead for those who looked at your blog post.
