NSFW Cheese? Behold the “From’Girls” (Fromage Girls) Calendar, a pin-up calendar with a cheesy twist: each girl is posing with a wheel of cheese, and is named accordingly, eg Mademoiselle Anne De Valencay, Roxanne Cantal, etc.
The calendar actually is in support of a good cause, namely the protection of the regional AOC cheeses that France is famous for. The calendar is the brainchild of Veronique Richez-Lerouge, president of the Fromages de Terroirs Association, a staunch and passionate defender of the raw milk cheese heritage of France. If you want to see Richez-Lerouge in the middle of a From’Girls photoshoot (with a cow, no less), check out the documentary The War of the Stinky Cheeses, and skip ahead to 15:45.
Nonetheless, good causes aside, I do love this rather apt description: “ The calendar features 12 women, clad in what looks like the weekend wardrobe of a 40-something with a penchant for rural swinging”. Yep:
It’s that time of year again - when those of us who were offered a calendar for Christmas are half-heartedly hanging it up on an overlooked wall of our choice.
Sunsets, racing cars, Justin Bieber… Calendar subjects tend, ironically, not to be the kind of things you want to spend an entire year looking at.
But fortunately for us in France, the yearly calendar frenzy has emerged as an unlikely occasion for the country’s cheese-makers to try their hand at soft-core porn.
Launched in 2006, the From’Girls calendar (‘from’ being short for fromage or cheese) is now something of an institution according to one regional daily. The concept is pretty straightforward, if not necessarily appetising. The calendar features 12 women, clad in what looks like the weekend wardrobe of a 40-something with a penchant for rural swinging. Posing provocatively and slathered in make-up, the only seriously abnormal aspect of the pin-up calendar is that each of the women is clutching a giant slab of stinking cheese.
Get your sexy (?) cheesy fix here!
