Read my lips carefully, if you like what you see
Move, groove, prove you can hang with me
By the looks I got you shook up and scared of me
Buckle your seatbelt, it’s time for takeoff
I don’t think you’re ready, for this jelly
I don’t think you’re ready, for this jelly
I don’t think you’re ready for this…
‘Cause my body’s too bootylicious for ya babe!
[Bootylicious, Destiny's Child]
Name: Tehmeena Afzal
Weight: 111 lbs
Ethnicity: Pakistani (say what! ?)
The compelling concept behind E.B. Rice’s 1912 Tarzan was not a story of some wino slumming in the woods. It was a cleverly packaged Eugenics ideal (Bio-Genetic Law had just been proposed) that a helpless child (of noble birth) could be introduced into a hostile environment, like an African jungle, and by virtue of his inherent traits and ability (his physiology, intellect, virility,etc) he could not only survive, but become the master of his domain. If you remember, there were plenty of blacks living in the same jungle with Tarzan and of course, they, were all getting their asses kicked.
So, what if you introduced an athletic, ambitious, headstrong girl with delectable Pakistani genes into the concrete jungles of Queens, New York ?. In Pakistan, like Krypton, most of her powers and abilities would be stultified and nagged-out of her before she even hit puberty. But a land where inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are (sorta, kinda) guaranteed for all (sorta, kinda), what might become of her ?.
Tehmeena Afzal, for one.
If you saw Tehmeena standing in the fields of Punjab, wearing a lehnga, bangles and some large earrings dangling from her ears, you would think “There goes another sassy mutiarun… I am never gonna know“. The long dark tresses, large almond-shaped eyes, distinctive nose and big juicy lips with a beguiling natural pout, will place her somewhere in the Pakistani heartland. Her features are decidedly eastern, just holding up better than most..
But outward appearances is where the similarities tend to end with her eastern sisters. It is after all understandable, growing up in the tough neighborhood of Queens, having to forge an identity separate from her emigrant parents. The choices she has made, the goals she is pursuing are as much a product of her environment, as herself. Where western culture has put more responsibilities and made her vulnerable by taking away the eastern family support structures, it has allowed her the space to exercise abilities and freedom to explore areas of her personality, which largely go untapped in the old country. It’s a trade-off that she thinks is worth it, having visited Pakistan a couple of times.
smooth: What are some of the things you want to achieve as a model ?.
Tehmeena: I want to pave the way for women of my heritage to pursue things like modeling. Our culture is so old-fashioned and many look down on what I’m doing, but there’s a whole generation of women out there who don’t want to subscribe to that way of life.

Pakistani emigrants have no doubt proven their intellect and driving skills abroad. Good for them. However, you couldn’t place a bona fide Pakistani gal (Yasmeen Ghauri, Tiffany Taylor, they don’t count) who had even tried to establish herself as a mainstream beauty. There are plenty of beautiful, sexy Pakistani gals abroad, engaged in all sorts of professions and trades. But for reasons known to us all, few have demonstrated the ability, ambition and chutzpah, to openly vie for a spot in the glamor industry. And no one has dared lay a claim to the mantle of “sex symbol”. That is, before Tehmeena came along.
smooth: Do you get any backlash from people in your culture ?
Tehmeena: I get a lot of backlash. I get people from Pakistan and other Muslims saying I’m going to be punished for what I’m doing, but I don’t think it’s a bad thing at all. I want to show girls that you can come from that culture and still do this.
smooth: What gave you the courage to step outside of tradition and give modeling a try ?.
Tehmeena: I’ve always been a rebellious person. Usually, I do whatever my parents tell me not to do. A lot of it has to do with wanting to prove people wrong. If you tell me I can’t do something, I’m going to go out of my way to show you that I won’t be limited.

At a time when Pakistanis are introducing themselves as “indians” in foreign shores to make their lives easier —to stand up to in-house fatwas and face the majority’s drum beat of prejudice and hate outside— takes extraordinary strength of character, determination and belief in one’s self. For most Pakistani men, a woman with sex-appeal (sluuu-t!), while quite helpful in private, must be seen to be flogged, in public. As I type this down, a deranged gorilla has gunned down the governor of Punjab for coming to the aid of a woman being threatened by lynch mobs.
So who will save us from this vaunted ignorance and celebrated hypocrisy, that is literally crushing body & soul of the Pakistani woman ?. It so happens that Tehmeena was made to order for just this sort of a trail-blazing, pioneer woman. In every interview she makes it a point to refer to her Pakistani heritage. It might (and must have) shut some doors in her face, but that’s the risk she is willing to hazard. In a hostile environment, instead of ducking for cover (pun alert!), she has laid it all bare; boots, roots and all.
While the right will forecast fire and brimstone, the far left will cast this as another case of objectification of women. The old patriarchal plan to confine women’s role in society as either a whore or a madonna. Using women’s bodies as a commodity, exploiting them, for profit. Now these are all legitimate concerns, but they do not (seem to) apply in this case.
Modeling is not an end in itself for Tehmeena, but a means to an end. She is principally an entrepreneur at-heart, with a steady day job. She intends to use name-recognition and money from her modeling career to finance her personal business ventures (sports bar, club and/or a car dealership). Secondly, as long as a woman is in control of what happens to her body and has the freedom to make those choices without any outside coercion, no one can take advantage of her. Isn’t this what the women’s movement and sexual liberation was all about ?. Individual choice. And if a woman, who is beautiful and sexy, spends time, money and effort in looking that way, decides to use her feminine viles to get her way, would she be unique in that way ?.
Tehmeena had reached milestones before she entered modeling. She was an all-state high school softball pitcher who recieved the Pegasus award and a full scholarship to college. She graduated with a degree in Fine Art/Graphics from the New York Institute of Technology. Somewhere between that and now working full-time for Nissan, at their largest dealership, she was also a rap artist and was recognized by her peers in the music industry for making mixed-tapes. Her private website (mixflavas.com) won back-to-back first place awards. She is also a doting mom to her 5 year old son. This is a multi-tasking, multi-dimensional woman.
And while I may not agree with all of her decisions (eg: tattoos) and choices (eg: rap music), she is smart enough to admit that neither of those agree much with her personality today. Come to think of it, those tats do add a certain color and spice, and just the right amount of danger to the landscape. Who knows what manner of ink or metal, still awaits discovery.
For a 27 year old working single mother, she is in simply unbelievable shape. Aside from the enhanced boobs (that are very well done, btw), she has a tiny, taut waistline and a mouth-watering, head-spinning, breath-taking, eye-popping (I could go on all night here) derrière with flaring hips to match. Her legs are also holding up nicely. Not an ounce of extra flesh anywhere. Just round, supple, glorious curves everywhere.
Her natural tan is a natural turn-on, especially for a desi who is himself blessed with one. The golden brown color is nature’s way of telling you, “I am done. Eat me!”. To hold ‘n caress, to nibble ‘n kiss, to love ‘n cherish, to inhale ‘n devour every sweet morsel… hamara nusbulain. While pale skin adorned with blue spider veins, redheads, blonds are all beautiful curiosities in their own right, I declare, that we desis have a natural affinity for someone from our own clan.
We know this olive and brown skin. We own it. We see it all day. We think we know something about it. How it works. How it feels to the touch, tastes in our mouth and smells when we inhale it in. How others see it on us and react to it. The wrinkle of brown skin at the elbows and around the knees. The strategic areas of light hills and dark crevices. The distinctive wavy bands of stretch marks that inevitably appear over the bust, underneath the belly, back of the thighs and around the hips. Scars from battles won and lost, with weight. Each day must start with a salute to those struggles –a series of reverential butterfly kisses, tracing the length and breadth of her.
These traits are peculiar to us. They brand us, as one. Every time your eyes and mouth feast upon them, your hands run over them, it’s a kind of self-affirmation and self-love. Your partner becomes a sort of extension of you. It’s the most satisfying and selfish kind of love —that you can practice with someone else in the bed. And thus the natural bonding. Not saying that you can’t have mind-blowing sex with a blond, but would it be as gratifying, as with an equally hot desi ?. Would post-coital bliss be as meaningful ?. The answer probably depends on how much of a desi lives in you.
Honey-glazed Tehmeena in shiny, stretchy, lacy, bare-ly there outfits: it’s like your favorite treat, tied with ribbons and ruffles, laid out for your pleasure. As you might have guessed, Tehmeena is not shy about expressing her likes and dislikes. From what kind of men turn her on, to what goes on in her boudoir and better yet, in her mind. Her attitude towards women, beauty and sexuality closely mirror yours truly, which is quite refreshing. More reason to keep hope alive.
smooth: You sound busy. Do you get out much ?.
Tehmeena: I really don’t go out as much as I would like to. I pretty much work seven days a week. When I’m not selling cars I’m trying to schedule a photo shoot or a video. When I do go out, I usually go to the strip club with my man or a bunch of guys from work. I always have a great time but I usually get more attention from the girls than the guys do.
smooth: What do you like about the strip clubs ?.
Tehmeena: I like to see my man admiring other women, but he still goes home with me. I know it sounds twisted but it’s a turn-on for me. Besides, I think women are beautiful, and I like to support those hard-working women because I know stripping is not an easy thing to do.
smooth: Do you think you could ever be a stripper ?.
Tehmeena: I’ve actually had a lot of people ask me if I was a stripper, but I don’t think I could ever do what they do. I’m way too shy to be out there with everything hanging out. I really take my hat off to those girls.
smooth: Have you ever stripped for your man ?.
Tehmeena: I’ve never done that for him, but now that you bring it up, I will definitely give it a try. I’m sure he won’t have any objections to that.
smooth: On a scale of one to ten, how would you rate your sex drive ?.
Tehmeena: I would say it’s about 15! My sex drive is insane. I have to have it at least once a day. Sometimes it gets to a point where my man has to tell me he needs a break.
smooth: How often is sex on your mind ?.
Tehmeena: Sex is always on my mind. When I wake up. after I take a shower, on my way to work… I think about sex every hour and a half at least.
smooth: What’s the best time of day to have sex ?.
Tehmeena: Any time is a great time to have sex, but I love to do it in the morning because it’s a great way to start the day. I usually can’t wait to do it again when I get home.
smooth: What’s the wildest sexual experience you ever had ?.
Tehmeena: The wildest experience I ever had was on a beach at night with a security guard watching us. He tried to make it seem like he was there to protect us but I know he was there to get his rocks off. We ended up paying him money to leave.
smooth: What’s something you would like to try ?.
Tehmeena: I want to have sex in a really public place where people could spot us at any time. I like being the center of attention, so that would be a rush!
smooth: Have you ever filmed yourself having sex ?.
Tehmeena: Yes, I have. Me and my man often go back and watch it to critique our performances. It turns us on.
smooth: Are you into porn ?.
Tehmeena: I didn’t become interested in porn until recently. It’s like I’ve discovered a whole new world! it’s a great way to get things started in the bedroom.
smooth: What’s your best sexual talent ?.
Tehmeena: My boyfriend would say getting bent over. I think my endurance is my talent. I can have sex for days. I’m very sexually athletic!
smooth: How are your oral skills ?.
Tehmeena: They are great! I love giving oral sex more than I like receiving it. I like being in control of how good I can make my man feel.
smooth: Describe your favorite sexual fantasy ?.
Tehmeena: I would like to have sex on the roof of a building in Times Square in the middle of the day. That would be hot!
[Interview from Smooth magazine - Dec 2009 issue]
Ironically, her oppressed and socially conservative sisters in the east are far ahead of her on this score, having christened numerous net cafes, restaurants and even the Quaid’s mausoleum, among other things. One is obligated to pay homage to such an all-around beauty and some changes in the banner of this blog are therefore, imminent.
Here is another intimate interview of Tehmina where she explains why she should be in Playboy, followed by her contact information, recent credits, picture galleries and some notable videos. All credit for these goes to the concerned quarters who have done such a great job in bringing her home, to us.
