The carnal sensuality of a voluptuous bunch of spices . In the trail of this oriental gourmand, mystery is tinted with eroticism, that the mythical year of 1969 evokes without a blush.

1969: In 1969 the world was forever changed it was a year of evolution and revolution. The old world is collapsing. The end of the Stalinism is growing to the east. It is the sexual liberation and the beginning of an enjoyment society. The Nouvelle Vague is revolutioning the cinema with directors such as Truffaut, Godart, Rivette. Claude Chabrol says “to new politic, new cinema”.

In the United States new actors appear like Clint Eastwood, Sean Connery, Jack Nicholson…

During the Parisian marches  bannersvsay : “independence politic and erotic for all women”. Women liberate themselves from social and prudish pressure. Some celebrities like Brigitte Bardot offends as well as they influence. Free love is in the air like equality between couple. Women gain the right to abort and have access to contraception.We can explain this sexual liberation by the decline of religion and moral philosophy. Baby-boom generation bring a youth culture.
The hippie subculture was originally a youth movement that began in the United States during the mid-1960s and spread around the world. The word hippie derives from hipster, and was initially used to describe people who created their own communities, listened to psychedelic rock, embraced the sexual revolution, and used drugs such as cannabis and LSD to explore alternative states of consciousness.
On January 1967, the Human Be-In at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco popularized hippie culture, leading to the legendary Summer of Love on the West Coast of the United States, and the 1969 Woodstock Festival on the East Coast. In Mexico, the jipitecas formed La Onda Chicana and gathered at Avándaro, while in New Zealand, nomadic housetruckers practiced alternative lifestyles and promoted sustainable energy at Nambassa. In the United Kingdom, mobile “peace convoys” of New age travellers made summer pilgrimages to free music festivals at Stonehenge. In Australia hippies gathered at Nimbin for the 1973 Aquarius Festival and the annual Cannabis Law Reform Rally or MardiGrass. In Chile, “Festival Piedra Roja” was held in 1970 (following Woodstock’s success), and was the major hippie event in that country.
Hippie fashions and values had a major effect on culture, influencing popular music, television, film, literature, and the arts. Since the 1960s, many aspects of hippie culture have been assimilated by mainstream society. The religious and cultural diversity espoused by the hippies has gained widespread acceptance, and Eastern philosophy and spiritual concepts have reached a wide audience. The hippie legacy can be observed in contemporary culture in myriad forms — from health food, to music festivals, to contemporary sexual mores, and even to the cyberspace revolution.
