The Sex Life of Food

When Body and Soul Meet to Eat

Overview

From the publisher

“The sex life of food” doesn’t mean that the strawberries have fallen in love with the oatmeal. It’s a look at food and sex and how they go together in our daily lives much more often than we realize.

Not only are people moved by the taste, texture, and shapes of the food they eat, but even the names of some dishes can kindle hunger — of both kinds. As the author writes, “Sometimes cooking is foreplay, eating is making love, and doing the dishes is the morning after.”

Topics here include food in fairy tales, what politicians eat, comfort food, and manners at the table. The Sex Life of Food offers unexpected and tantalizing knowledge of how much and in how many surprising ways we assuage our hunger for both food and sex and how where there’s one, there is often the other.
