Food Fetish (Eating Fetish)

Voyeuristic food fetishists are usually male and, in most cases, they take the food imagery so popular in women’s magazines one step further and seek to realise their erotic fantasies by bringing that imagery into the real world. The representation-and the effect of food imagery-is similar in many ways, to the style in which representations of eroticised women are given the hyper-real treatment in modern pornography. Both forms deal in the idealised portrayal of sensual satisfactions to similar desires and especially in the case of food fetishists, whose imaginations blend the two subjects together.

In the acted-out version of this fetish, the simple act of consuming food by one or other participants, whilst being watched by the other, has a profound erotic charge. The physical consumption and ritualised enjoyment of eating can be enhanced, in a number of ways, for the spectator. The process can begin with the enjoyment of aromas, licking of lips, slow opening of the mouth and the use of utensils. It continues with the teasing of the lips with the first piece of food, soft chewing, murmurs of satisfaction and, finally, over-emphasised swallowing. Eating, in this way becomes a fetishistic stand-in for the sex act, heightened in its effect because this kink can be performed, illicitly, in full view of other diners in a restaurant if need be.

    Red Lingerie

    Normally, red lingerie is perceived as being really tacky. It’s associated with harlots, cheesy valentines day lingerie sets and Mother Christmas outfits. As I adjusted the fit of the red lingerie and smoothed my breasts into a killer cleavage, […]

    Strawberry Sex

    There’s nothing like strawberry sex; because it’s never dull, ordinary or vanilla. Neither is it dangerous, extreme or serious. Strawberry sex is never less than rude, kinky and fun and it throws in handcuffs, chairs, ropes, ice cream and […]

    Food and Sex

    They say that people eat food in the same way that they have sex. In my case, it’s absolutely true. I’m a fussy eater and I always have been. When I’m asked whether I like spicy food, for instance, I always reply that I’m spic […]
