Cancer - Sylvia Kristel "Emmanuelle" star, 60

'Emmanuelle' star Sylvia Kristel dies at age 60
Actress Sylvia Kristel, 60, the Dutch star of the hit 1970s erotic movie "Emmanuelle" has died of cancer.
Her agent, Features Creative Management, said in a statement Thursday that Ms. Kristel died in her sleep Wednesday night. The model, who turned to acting in the 1970s, had been fighting cancer for several years.
Her breakthrough came in "Emmanuelle," a 1974 tale directed by Frenchman Just Jaeckin, about the sexual adventures of a man and his wife in Thailand. Ms. Kristel, who played the wife, went on to star in several sequels as well as in Hollywood movies, including Private Lessons in 1981.
In Hollywood, she sank into a world of drink and drugs. "I wish I could have skipped that part of my life, she said in a 2005 interview with Dutch newspaper De Volkkrant.
Her agent described her as one of the Netherlands' biggest movie stars, with more than 50 international films to her name. Among them were many erotically tinted films, including a 1981 adaptation - also directed by Jaeckin - of D.H. Lawrence's novel "Lady Chatterley's Lover," and "Mata Hari," four years later.
She was honored in 2006 with a special jury prize at the Tribeca Film Festival for a short animated film she directed called "Topor et Moi."
Ms. Kristel is survived by her partner, Peter Brul, and a son, Arthur Kristel, with her former partner, Belgian author Hugo Claus. She is to be buried at a private funeral.

"Hard nipples" - areola or nipple skin

Someone once wrote"...when i get really cold, or get goosebumbs all over my body, the whole things really scrunch up, like, my entire areola scrunches itself up into a wrinkled little mound. it looks really weird and ugly, and i haven't ever seen other people's breasts do it. what is wrong with my areola/nipples??" The answer: Well nothing is wrong. This is what my areola does too. It's a normal reaction to the coldness or to irritation / stimulation. The little muscles in the areola do a similar goosebump thing as your other skin can do. People often call this phenomenon "hard nipples". Also note that skin on areola has less feeling or sensation to it than other areas of your body. If the areola was very sensitive, then breastfeeding would probably be quite uncomfortable because the baby pulls and tugs it! The nipples are sensitive but the sensitivity changes with hormonal changes, such as occur at mestrual cycle or pregnancy. Also this varies with ind…
