Sylvia Kristel may have been too old for most of our readers (and myself, actually) to know, but to a entire earlier generation of young, weirdo perverts, she was the titular star of Emmanuelle, a French erotic film that served as a constant on premium movie channels in the 80′s and inspired a slew of sequels and spinoffs to this day.

In fact, the film got so much attention that it’s now among the highest-grossing French films of all-time, and even played in one theater in Paris for 11 years straight.

Sylvia Kristel died yesterday at the age of 60 after a long battle with cancer. Her groundbreaking performance has captured the hearts of an entire generation of males that existed before broadband speed porn on demand.

On behalf of that generation, “Thanks, Sylvia.”
