Ban This Brazil

Brazilian model, and ex-Ronaldo cutie Daniela Cicarelli means business when she says "não" to Youtube.

Just last week, a São Paulo judge ordered Youtube to remove a steamy, sandy sex romp being enjoyed on a beach in Spain, by Cicarelli and banker boyfriend, fellow Paulista, Renato Malzoni. Her lawyer argued,

"The Internet is democratic and has to be defended, but this struggle is to have some level of control to avoid the violations of people's fundamental rights, like privacy and intimacy"


Colour me silly, but wouldn't having slow grinding carnal relations on a public beach, whether inside the water, or on it à la Deborah Kerr and Burt Lancaster, preclude any expectation of privacy?

Brazil, of course, uses Roman law not common law as the basis for their legal system, so perhaps a jurist or lawyer could comment here as to the legal niceties.

CORRECTION!: ALL of Youtube has been banned in Brazil, not just the video. This draconian step would be pilloried as Fascist, if it had been President Bush's "administration" under which the legal system had banned a whole site from their countrymen. Jebus.

But you judge for yourself, if you what you see below, is protected by reasons of privacy.





(Don't let on, but Daniela's lawyers are obviously unaware that Google Video has the footage too. They'd probably take it to the Hague, if they did)

Click here for explicit, not to be believed, definitely un-workplace friendly footage.

Note where Renato puts the seaweed. God, as if those speedos weren't bad enough.

Of course, just as soon as this video made it to the public sites, there had to be some jolly joker who riffed it.

I'm not sure what these are (midges, or fruit flies perhaps, carrying dengue no doubt), but they sure seem happy.

Finally, here is some surreptious video I myself shot, late late at night, showing me doing something you've never seen before!





I was young. I needed the money.


ADDENDUM: This is a bit strange. Shortly after I shoot this video, comes word that the Port of Miami (seen above a mere few hours before) has had two suspicious incidents, one after the other.

First, three Arab lorry drivers were detained after they refused to produce papers whilst trying to sneak into the heavily guarded Port of Miami. Two were from Lebanon, the driver was from Iraq, both legal residents from Dearborn, Michigan.

Just minutes ago, at 3:30 PM EST, a bomb squad was sent to the same Port, to detonate a suspicious looking package being loaded unto a cruise ship (!), after an explosives detecting machine picked up traces of C-4. Local coverage was plastered all over it, of course. They've since resumed regular programming.

But I love how the Miami Horrible didn't even mention the first incident, specifically about the Arab trio, and just left it like this:

"Miami-Dade police are investigating the possible discovery today of an explosive device in material being loaded onto a cruise ship at the Port of Miami-Dade.

The incident comes a day after an incident at the facility sparked a national security scare.

The Miami-Dade bomb squad has been sent to the port -- for the second day in a row."

You'd think "a national security scare" would deserve a little more in the way of details, than just a blip at the end, but God forbid we should be so gauche as to hurt an immigrant group's feelings.

Though Blogger has a scheduled outtage, and I'm busyish today, I'll keep you updated if there is further news about the implosion at the PoM. Talk about hitting close to home. I live 2 minutes away...

  • Great video Victoria! I think I'll be going to the beach today!!!

    The dengue health warnings were pretty funny! However, your own video was not quite what I expected! Surely you can do better!

  • I don't understand Daniela Cicarelli's outrage over that video. Everyone, especially celebrities, should realize that practically everyone now has a cellphone-camera. If you're going to save sex in public it WILL be captured.

    BTW ... Your link above isn't working right now. You can see the video here too: www.freepornvideos69.com.

  • Where's the warnings not to try this at home?

    Sex in water is generally a bad idea (at least for the 'receptive' partner), as all that thrusting shoves water into nooks and crannies where water doesn't belong (and having watched the video at the link, there was definitely some fairly vigorous thrusting going on).

    If the water is free of bad stuff, not so bad, but beaches in any populated place generally have bacteria of all sorts swimming along with the fishes.

    (here's an article from the UVA paper on the subject)

    As far as behaving that way in public, we were all young once, but if you are a public figure expect any and every action in public to be observed, and if it's titillating like this, expect it to be recorded and disseminated (heh, heh, he said semen).

    Actually, the video was hot, I admit.

    Oh Jose. You know I always keep the lights off.

  • I don't understand Daniela Cicarelli's outrage over that video.

    I would be outraged too, even if I were famous, super beautiful, a model, and having sex on the beach with my boyfriend.

    That's just the way we gals work.

    Everyone, especially celebrities, should realize that practically everyone now has a cellphone-camera. If you're going to save sex in public it WILL be captured.

    Now, this is very true.

    Recently, I was in a restaurant with Ludacris in SoBe (well, he was next to our table :).

    I didn't know who he was, at first, but the whispers around me informed me. I had my camera inches away, but I didn't take a sneaky pic.

    But at the door of the kitchen, I noticed a waiter did.

    He would've made a killing on the tabloid circuit, even with the bad light, because Ludacris had a bimbo he was kissing half the night.

    BTW ... Your link above isn't working right now. You can see the video here too:

    Well, thanks Anonymous, although I have to say, I don't at all mind links (please, I'm the queen of links), but I usually delete these types.

    But, since it's germaine to the conversation, no biggie. :)

    It's not America, XWL. :)

    Other people actually have common sense (duck!!).

    all that thrusting shoves water into nooks and crannies

    Is it suddenly hot in here, or is it just me?

    there was definitely some fairly vigorous thrusting going on).

    Yes, but did they actually have it away, or was it just (heh) dry humping?

    Seriously.

    Neither partner adjusted his or her bathing costume in a way to suggest actually ramming took place.

    And the strategic placing of the seaweed confirms it.

    it's titillating like this, expect it to be recorded and disseminated (heh, heh, he said semen).

    And titillating.

    P.S.: Daniela Cicarelli is Brazil's least favourite person right now. Technorati is full of complaint posts by (mostly male) Brazilians, cheesed that they cannot access Youtube, because of her. Obviously, she's getting called names -- they have a name for the type of girl who follows famous footballers around, Maria Chuteira (Shoe-tay-ra) -- 'whore' being the least of them.

    This Brazilian asks the not so tongue-in-cheek question, what does my Youtube video of my cat have to do with Daniela's...case?

    Cheers,
    Victoria

    I once had a granny who looked in every nook and cranny!

    So I saw it again, and yes, there is a "cut" which shows both of them adjusting their bathing suits. :)

    That boy has staying power.

    Not a sentence one sees every day!

    P.S.: As I write, I click over to BBC America, and there is Benny Hill. Somehow, apposite.

  • The warning part was tongue in cheek, of course (you can choose which tongue, and which cheek, at your leisure).

    As far as this nooks and cranny business . . .

    Victoria, you are my favorite English Muffin.

    (Thomas' slogan for their whole grain product, "heartier nooks, healthier crannies")

    And my favorite part of the linked google video wasn't the thrusting, humping, and such, but the odd nose sucking with the caption, "olfato".

    Rrrrrr!

    (Thomas' slogan for their whole grain product, "heartier nooks, healthier crannies")


    And this relates to me, how?

    Oh, I know. I'm white, pasty, and flavourless.

    Thanks a lot, XWL!

    And my favorite part of the linked google video wasn't the thrusting, humping, and such, but the odd nose sucking with the caption, "olfato".

    LOL, that was a good one.

    I liked "Sangria, para refrescarse" (A little Sangria, to refresh themselves).

    Please note, that the beach viddie's supertitles are in Spanish, whereas the mosquito one is in Portuguese.

    Also in Portuguese, are the Google Video owner's remarks about what we will see:

    "A Vagabunda da Cicarelli agasalhando o croquete do namorado da semana na praia"

    Vaguely translated, with a fair amount of bowdlerisation:

    "That ho Cicarelli kneading this week's boyfriend's willie, on the beach"

    He He He.

    Oh and I updated the blogspot with a screenshot of my favourite "sequence".

    I like it, because I can see myself doing it.

    Wow, this blog's tone went downhill fast.

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • For the record, that wasnt me...there's no way you'd get me into that speedo no matter how hot the girl. After being with Tafkar, she is ruined for me anyways.;)

    Have you ever caught any canoodling down by your condo hot tub or pool Vicky?

    By Blogger Renato, at Mon Jan 08, 05:28:00 pm GMT-5  

  • For the record, that wasnt me...

    Oh sure. How many Renatos are there out there?

    there's no way you'd get me into that speedo no matter how hot the girl.

    I once saw a pic of Prince Philip wearing a speedo (yes!) in the 1950s. He might be the only guy in this world, who could pull that off.

    So to speak.

    After being with Tafkar, she is ruined for me anyways.;)

    Guys, TAFKAR = The Athlete Formerly Known as Ronaldo, FYI.

    Renato hates him, because he is an Interista. :)

    Have you ever caught any canoodling down by your condo hot tub or pool Vicky?

    Well! ...now that you mention it, yes.

    Not in the hot tub, but in one of the condo pools.

    Being somewhat modest, I of course grabbed a chair and looked for hours.

    P.S.: The pool was cleaned, and the people turned out to be summer renters (ick). They were asked to leave, and they did.

    Also, I've just come home from a movie, and am pooped. I will blog later.

    Do I sense l'ironie? ;)

    BTW, there was some "do" at the cinemahouse, where the Simon Wiesenthal Institute were showing a documentary on his life, in one of the theatres.

    Champagne, caviare, bagels and lox awaited the yarmulked participants downstairs, afterwards.

    Yum!

    Cheers,

    Had I known, I would've bought a ticket.

  • There was a time when the National Lampoon had astonishingly great humor writers, then they went completely to hell. One of them Gerald Sussman, had a regular feature, "Tips and Tales from Bernie X," about an idealized New York Jewish cabbie and his hyper-fantastical adventures. Some of these yarns were so funny, ("Cher gets into my cab and says, 'Take me to California.' Oy.") I still laugh at the thought! The funniest was when Simon Wisenthal gets in the cab and insists that only Bernie X can help him solve a particular Nazi hunting problem... If I find it, I'll post a bit of linkage...

    Sorry,just wool-gathering there, and no, no irony! Movie posts from you are great, sort of anti-Althousian in both their love and criticism. Maybe you should have a sidebar with them! Maybe do "reviews" of classics! So many possibilities...

    Mutually Admiring,
    Ron

    By Blogger Ron, at Tue Jan 09, 07:30:00 am GMT-5  

  • Wow, I see a lot of Althousians made it to the post about Daniele Cicarelli (pervs!).

    One correction, to my earlier reply to fellow Althouse-resident, XWL:

    Please note, that the beach viddie's supertitles are in Spanish, whereas the mosquito one is in Portuguese.

    No, they're both in Spanish.

    This makes the Brazilian mosquito production even funnier, because it was ordered by the Brazilian Secretary of Health!!

    Can you imagine the US Surgeon-General doing the same?

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • Debtor for mentioning mine blog! My English is not good but I understood its all post.

    Due to international repercussion, the YouTube was set free two days after the prohibition.

    Thanks.
