Eggzachary, Andy, and it matters little what the food is. Something as simple as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich can be a turn on, especially if it's prepared with love and eaten with a sensuous flair.

The thread's title was written with some care to keep out the riffraff, and while we've accepted that some of them are already longtime members, maybe DC can create a G-rated catalog of such food...


I don't really know why, but I can attest to: chocolate. And it seems to be universal.

Here's an interesting read.

The Top 10 Aphrodisiac Foods | Personal Health | AlterNet

I'm not a big sweets eater, but I agree with chocolate. For me, it's mostly about color, texture, & aroma.

Souffles - chocolate, plain, cheese
Strawberries, mangos, figs, peaches, watermelon
Avocado
lobster and drawn butter
cheese
ice cream
whipped cream
champagne (maybe it's the bubbles )
Mashed potatoes (with lots of butter)
pasta, pasta, pasta

It's hard to fathom, but humanity seems willing to harvest and eradicate some species for their aphrodisiac qualities. In the name of love.

Wa-a-a-ay back when I was in college, I lived in a ramshackle old three story house on E. Nittany Avenue known as "The Vets House." Like a fraternity house for veterans, only without the fraternity. We had a great kitchen with a huge old Wolf stove..six burners, griddle with broiler under it and two huge ovens. Anything prepared in that kitchen and serve to a woman who lived in the dorms worked. I think that's where I learned to love cooking. ;)

I remember hearing on a radio talk show what not to serve: tacos (too messy), lobster (takes too long to dismember and eat, also messy). Can't remember the other stuff.

There was a really hot movie back in the day where the BF blindfolded the GF and fed her stuff from the fridge, like strawberries dipped in chocolate sauce, while she sat on the floor.

I believe you are referring to 9 1/2 weeks and I was going to mention it earlier but wasn't sure if spork wanted that info in the thread.

You can watch the food scene on youtube if anyone wishes. ^^
