Here's to an Appetizing Start!
by Jamie Joy Gatto

Food and sex: the most likely top two indulgences on every hedonist's list. Combine the two and you're in for an unforgettable and gratifying experience. Slake two lusts at once and see how amazingly you're already hungry for more...


I once saw a show about food and sex and food fetishes. Until recently, because of bad past relationships and experiences, I haven't had the chance to play with that combo. Can you tell me more about how I can use food as a turn-on for me and my boyfriend? I love to flirt with men; stuff like teasing and arousing my boyfriend is the most fun thing of all to me. What do you suggest?

Jamie Joy Says:

What a fun question! And I'm so glad and proud of you that you are now with a supportive guy with whom you can share your sexy scenarios and act out your food fantasies. Where shall I begin? Aphrodisiacs, Appetizers, Sex Play? I think I'll have to cover all three... just thinking about it makes my mouth water.


Isabelle Allende comes up with thousands of aphrodisiacs in her book, Aphrodite: A Memoir of the Senses, some of which are ancient and folkloric, and other recipes are a touch more modern. "Caviar," she writes, "is one of the most expensive aphrodisiacs in the world... and I can think of a thousand pornographic ways to serve it..." Almost any food can be an aphrodisiac, as long as it is served with passion and finesse, and so long as it is both delicious and palatable by the one who is indulging in it. 

Some commonly known aphrodisiacs are oysters and other seafoods such as shrimp, squid, scallops, and of course, eggs (including the most coveted sea eggs: caviar), vegetables such as the artichoke, asparagus, and anything phallic like the carrot or cucumber are good ones, and don't forget testosterone-rich raw celery stalks. Garlic is a hearty aphrodisiac, but that one must be shared so as not to offend with one's odorous breath and skin. Italian legend says that garlic eaten on the right evening and shared with a lover can create everlasting love. Roasted garlic is so yummy, used as a spicy, buttery spread I'd give it a shot any moonlit night!

Sweets can almost always woo a lover, especially if they are packaged in elegant wrappings. Chocolate is well-known for being associated with love. Berries and other ripe fruits, creams, sauces and anything that is savory or sweet and edible can be used to suggestive purposes.


Some foods actually look sexy, so sexy, in fact, that it can be suggestive enough just to serve them. Take plump, ripe figs, for instance. The resemblance to so many sexy body parts, including a man's balls, a woman's shapely derriere, and when cut or split open, figs may even resemble the wet, ready vulva. And when you bite into them, you get an instant burst of sour and sweet flavor and such an unusual texture, I dare you to resist the urge to fornicate. Sound delicious? Give it a try. 

Don't like figs? Try plump strawberries, succulent plums, tart blackberries. Just about any fruit will do. Bananas? Peel one seductively, your lover will get the hint! Mangos with their slippery flesh and odd, exotic aftertaste will surely put you both in the mood. 

Feed delicious and exotic foods to your lover, by spoon, fork or especially your finger and you'll surely win their heart, especially home made foods prepared with love and lust in mind.

Sex Play

Even the Kama Sutra, which is centuries old, offers ideas for food regarding sex stating, "Men who do not eat in the evening become weak." I'd have to agree. Sharing a meal with one's lover may be the sexiest thing two people can do apart from having sex itself. It is such a sacred and intimate act, and it can lead to even more intimate, physical contact. My advice is to play with your food! Never mind what you were told as a child, you are a grown-up now, so go out and have fun. Get messy! Lick it up... smooth it on, taste it, smell it, eat it! Most of all, share it. 

Just be careful about contact with hot, peppery foods on skin and other body parts. Some foods you might not be aware of that may cause pain or heat are are ginger, wasabi, cinnamon and peppermint. Those foods and foods that contain those ingredients may be too strong or too intense for some people, so be very careful or completely avoid sex play or skin contact with those foods. And ladies, watch what you put inside your vagina. Sugary things can cause all kinds of bad reactions later, including infections, so as fun as it may sound to do, please avoid popping strawberries or squirting whipped cream inside yourself. Save that and the honey, chocolate and buttercream icing for external parts, like the clit or the nipples... or the ass, or your puckered kissy lips... yum! Dessert anyone?
