Food Porn

Food porn is described by Wikipedia thusly:

Food porn is a glamorized spectacular visual presentation of cooking or eating in advertisements, infomercials, cooking shows or other visual media of foods boasting a high fat and calorie content or exotic dishes that arouse a desire to eat or the glorification of food as a substitute for sex.  Food porn often takes the form of food photography and styling that presents food provocatively.

The term has been around for a while.  It appears in the 1984 book Female Desire (page 103) by the feminist critic Rosalind Coward.

Food porn is also defined as… “the glamorization of the visual presentation of food.  The word ‘porn’ is only meant to represent the feeling of desire for the food in the image.  The trend first started with the viral photos and videos of dramatic, over indulgent food demonstrations.”

I once watched an HBO show about sensual foods.  One woman said that she could have an orgasm just eating chocolate covered cherries.  My first thought “I’m not eating those right…”

Uh…not food porn.  Maybe food art.  Maybe just someone with too much time on their hands.

Then there are these cakes…

And they come with or without clothing.  And they come in individual body parts as well.  No not ears, noses, fingers, or toes.  Very graphic intimate body parts.  I’m not going to put one of those here,   you can look that up yourself by Googling things like ‘cakes that look like torsos’ or ‘erotic cakes’.  If you don’t want to bake it yourself, there is even a business that will supply such cakes for you


OK…this is getting closer to my idea of real food porn…
