Emily Ratajkowski is solving first world problems in her latest video for The Love Advent Calendar 2017. How to eat spaghetti gracefully.
We all know what it’s like trying to eat our spaghetti gracefully and we all know it’s not easy. It gets worse when there’s sauce from the bolognese splashing everywhere and we all know that’s it’s not something to choose to eat on a first date right?
Well, we can all throw caution to the wind and do as Emily Ratajkowski has done for The Love Advent Calendar in the video below. Imagine going on a date in lingerie to a fancy restaurant and doing this?
Fun and games aside, there is a very important message behind this video. Read what Emily Ratajkowski has to say about men, about feminism and about women’s sexuality below.
The 2017 Love Advent Calendar is part of Love’s Magazine’s StayStrong series which has a plethora of the most beautiful women on the planet. Emily Ratajkowski is day 3 of the 31 days of Christmas and supermodel Ashley Graham does legs, bums and tums for Day 2.

There’s also a stunning teaser for day 1 of The Advent Calendar which features all the women involved this year.
“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 (Editor in Chief of Love Magazine) 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.”
This isn’t the first or probably the last time that Emily Ratajkowski has featured in The Love Advent Calendars, 2016 saw director Hype Williams shoot Emily in this very sexy, very sultry video below.
Emily also featured in the 2015 calendars too
