Foodgasm

LicentiouslyYours LicentiouslyYours
Tucker Cummings has a really interesting look at the sexualization of food and how the response our body has to food can be very similar to its response to sex.

What food has that effect on you? Is it chocolate? Lasagna? Ice cream? Fried pickles? –ok, that last one is probably just me, but seriously, what foods inspire your foodgasm?

I'm a chocoholic, the darker the better. It's a good sign when I open the wrapper and the lights dim for how dark the chocolate is.

I like sweets, but not like super duper sweet, but like a deep, rich sweet.

Or pizza. I once had an orgasmic pizza that I made. It was a double-decker (basically a pizza covered by a pizza with entwined crust) and it was SO FREAKIN' GOOD.

And cookies. And pies. And cakes. And a good ravioli, with a great sauce. Ohh! There's this restaurant here that serves this amaaaaaaaaaazing Belgian chocolate souffle, with fresh whipped cream and fresh melted dark chocolate. I dream about that souffle. Really.

I agree with @Judy Cole, for me it is avocado sushi every time. I could eat that stuff for DAYS, and it always seems so decadent to me. lol.

Cheesecake. Cheesecake and coffee. The perfect afterward snack. We loved this. We would go on the porch after making love, get out some cheesecake, and just sit with each other, eating it. It's not only the taste, but the memories it brings. Chocolate truffles with raspberry filling also bring these memories.

Not sweet foods that make me feel this way are Chinese, Japanese, and Ethiopian. Ethiopian especially, because it is a food and culture that really brings people together.

A really good cup of coffee does it for me. So does a perfectly cooked filet mignon with madeira soaked mushrooms

From the article:

So, dopamine makes sex and food equally pleasurable. But what if you’re single? Without sex, some people turn increasingly to food to make them feel good. Part of the problem is genetic. According to this study, people who naturally produce lower levels of dopamine often overeat because they need to eat more food to trigger the same level of pleasure as people who produce normal levels.

Because food and sex both release dopamine into the brain, it’s easy for our brains to sublimate our sexual appetites into our food cravings. And while deriving pleasure from food is totally normal, taking it to excess can have tragic consequences.


Me, me, me. Did I mention this was me? My celibate marriage had me at my heaviest and investing more energy into cooking/eating than anything else in my life (because there was nothing else to do). I've always naturally produced low dopamine levels (coupled with dysthymiac depression - and there's likely a connection), so food and sex were always 'over done'. Food was easier to get ahold of. Sex ... well, my ex-lover ended up more exhausted with me than with anyone else he had been with.

I'd rather have sex three times a day. This eating thing isn't filling up the emptiness.

Chocolate so dark it becomes a back hole for available ambient light? Pass me over a square!

A really good cup of COFFEE!!! Other than that, mine is something that everyone will probably think is incredibly strange...unsalted saltine crackers and a cup of scalding hot strong Irish Breakfast black tea. Beyond that...almost any piece of ripe, juicy fruit. Or Cajun Chicken and Shrimp. Or ....maybe I should stop now.

I was just telling the girls as we hauled our groceries home from the store (Arch is an urbanite and doesn't drive...so when we are here we go native!) that since there is a real indian restaurant just around the corner that smells GORGEOUS we should wander in and tell them we've never tasted curry and ask what they recommend...

Ok, I'm on a diet and officially despise all of you.

Buuuuut a foodgasm for me would be these dark chocolate brownies swirled with cheescake filling that my man's mother makes, with a big glass of ice cold milk. That's the kind of eating that requires me to have a cigarette afterward.

I enjoy many types of food, but the only one that approaches orgasmic is a perfectly cooked prime rib served rare....oh gods, as it melts in your mouth with some horseradish on it...ohhhhh mmmmmm aaahhh.

I like food better than sex. I was just talking to a friend last week about having someone bend us over with our faces in the fridge so we could keep eating while doin' the nasty. It sounded awesome, but kind of cold.
