LOVE Advent Calendar 2017: Emily Ratajkowski How to eat spaghetti so sexy

The Advent Calendar 2017 LOVE Magazine is back with its band of super hot girls.

After Ashley Graham, it’s up to Emily Ratajkowski help us remember how many days until Christmas.

In the video directed by Phil Poynter and inspired by the model’s training routine, that is, eating pasta and drinking wine, Emrata devours a plate of spaghetti like no one before her.

Dressed only in a lingerie set with a scarf and gloves by Burberry, she grabs the pasta and, voracious and sexy, spreads it on the body, eats it, lies down on it.

Miss Ratajkowski remains faithful to her reputation as a girl with a joyful and generous sensuality, but also conscious and feminist, as confirmed by the words accompanying the launch of the video on Instagram, once again a speech on female power that deserves to be read carefully.

"To me, female sexuality and sexiness, no matter how conditioned it may be by a patriarchal ideal, can be incredibly empowering for a woman if she feels it is empowering to her. The way I dress, act, flirt, dance, have sex - those are my decisions and they shouldn’t be impacted by men. Being sexy is fun and I like it. I should never have to apologize for that. My life is on my terms and if I feel like putting on sexy underwear, it’s for me. Personal choice is the core ideal in my concept of feminism. Katie directed us to say 'Stay Strong' at the end of each video and I think it’s a message from one woman to another. You’re watching a video of a girl grinding in lingerie or whatever else and she is looking into the camera at the end saying, 'you do you, however YOU want to, fuck the rest'. In the wake of the Harvey fallout and women coming forward with incredible amounts of sexual harassment cases, I have been so disappointed to hear women talk about 'modesty' and 'our responsibility' as if we need to, yet again, adjust to make it 'easier' for the rest of the world. I’m tired of having to consider how I might be perceived by men if I wear the short skirt or post a sexy Instagram. I want to do what I want to do. Feminism isn’t about adjusting, it’s about freedom and choice. Do you think viewers will understand that, given the current wider conversation about the sexual objectification of women? why or why not? What are the risks? This is something I’ve battled with personally and publicly. I’ve had men comment on sexy images of me online and say 'this is empowering to you?'... 'Ha! I just masturbated to it so hope you feel good about yourself!' I guess that’s the way people can react, which ironically, ultimately serves my point. I don’t care about your reaction or what you do with my expression of self. In fact, it has nothing to do with you at all and that's the point-which is why it feels good. Ultimately, if a woman wants to wear a burka or nothing at all, it’s great if it’s what she wants and feels good about.#StayStrong".
