Please don't steal our images, yeah?

What is this?

On a golden-yellow background, the profile of a young woman with voluminous magenta hair, milky complexion, long black eyelashes, four freckles on the cheek, and pastel pink lips. Layered over the magenta hair is an image of the same young woman, her hair now toned orange and mustard, entwined with her lover. The following inscriptions appear: along upper margin, in white-"CHANTAL / RENAUD", in plum- "l'apprentissage / de la sexualite", in white- "DANIELLE OUIMET"; and at the bottom: in plum-"LA JOIE DE L'AMOUR', in black- "l'initiation", and in plum-"UN FILM EN COULEURS DE DENIS HEROUX / avec la participation de JACQUES RIBEROLLES / GILLES CHARTRAND_SERGE LAPRADE_CELINE LOMEZ_LOUISE TURCOT."
