Intimacy Show-Off

Intimacy Show-Off

Producer Patrícia Drummond explains the phenomenon:
"What makes the biggest success on the Internet is voyeurism.
To be interesting these essays have to be spicy
and couples are allowed everything."
By Alessandra Dalevi

Trying to add a little more spice to the already spicy Brazilian gossip media, Cravo
e Canela has found a different way of showing celebrities. The Internet-based
magazine—http://www.cravoecanela.net—
mixes the explicitness of Playboy to the coziness of People and presents
famous couples in their intimacy. In mid-October the featured couple was the hottest TV
actress of the day Danielle Winits and her boyfriend Marco Mastronelli. The photo essay
shows dozens of pictures of the pair in ardent kisses and teasing pictures, but nothing
that gets close do hardcore.

Winits told Rio’s daily O Dia that one reason to accept the challenge was to be
with Marco since they live a very busy life: "I had another essay with Marco about
one year ago for my store’s catalogue. This way is much more fun. We rarely find time to
be together. That’s why we accepted the invitation." Danielle also knows that some
people would like to see some more explicit scenes. "This is just a taste of real
life," she explains. "It’s not bashful, but it isn’t vulgar either. They didn’t
go all the way. They did something sensual without being too graphic."

Other sites have also appealed to celebrities. Morango (strawberry.
"Internet’s tastiest site")—http://www.morango.com.br—for
example, has been showing beautiful women in different degrees of undress. For Flávio
Pedreira, the director of Cravo e Canela, the response from the public to the
innovation has been very positive. Says he, "Our idea was to offer something new. For
us a relationship is more important than someone by himself."

The Cravo e Canela (Clove & Cinnamon) pictorial is pure image. There is no
text introducing the couple or accompanying the pictures. The photo essay that started the
series and that appeared just before the one with Daniella and Marco was a little more
daring, showing another actress, Gabriela Duarte with her beau, model Fábio Ghirardelli.
Talking on TV to show hostess Marília Gabriela, Fábio showed enthusiasm about the
experience: "We were at ease. We could be ourselves. We didn’t have to interpret
anything."

Patrícia Drummond, a producer, tries to explain the phenomenon. "What makes the
biggest success on the Internet is voyeurism. To be interesting these essays have to be
spicy. And since the people presented on Cravo e Canela are couples, they are allowed
everything.

For actress Júlia Lemmertz, who had long and very explicit sex scenes with husband
Alexandre Borges in last year’s cult film Um Copo de Cólera (A Glass of Wrath),
the exposure of famous artists to the public was unavoidable. "We have to keep our
distance from the characters. But today the public is curious about everything and the
artists, well, they wish to expose themselves."
