The delicious delights of a fabulous food, interwoven with the sensuality of flirtation and foreplay make for ecstatic pleasures long remembered! Great food and great sex both invite us to celebrate all of our senses...sights, sounds, smells, tastes and touch. 

Sometimes one sense or another is emphasized and others are overlooked. Despite living in an increasingly visual world, when it comes to sexy turn-ons, the preference for explicit visuals applies more to men than to women.  The huge popularity of Fifty Shades of Grey among women rests as testimony to that. The erotic appeal of that piece of “sexy lit” rests in its capacity to evoke sexy imagery through words on a page, or rather, on a black/white screen displaying nothing but words.

Despite the enormous appeal of “sexy lit,” it’s often overlooked player during a sexy meal designed to weave together fork play and foreplay. How can sexy lit meet sexy food? Let me count the ways! If you watched the Super Bowl, you may have caught the ad in which a woman suggestively invited her lover to read to her from Fifty Shades of Grey. The ad failed to offer a sexy context, say over a shared plate of aphrodisiac finger foods you can feed each other on a plush throw in front of a warm fireplace. (Think chocolate-covered strawberries and a glass of champagne).  And for many, plenty of other sexy lit holds far more erotic appeal than this past year’s craze, whether it’s the Song of Solomon or passages from Anais Nin.  You could, of course, read to each other.

Other ways to weave sexy lit into a leisurely, pleasure-focused  meal:  Consider recording your voice in advance reading your favorite erotic passage. Then surprise your lover by playing it as you share your meal in a sexy setting. Or maybe you’d be inspired to play an audio book of sexy lit that turns you on. You might even try something novel:  Listen to, but don’t watch, an erotically themed film with plenty of sexy dialogue, moans, and sighs!

A Message From Linda De Villers PhD:
I created this book to help you enjoy the remarkable relationship between food and sex. These two themes run brightly through my own life both personally and professionally, and are inseparable from my sense of who I am. Having counseled and taught thousands of people on the loving arts, and having fed nearly as many in my kitchens over the years, I find myself in a state of barely contained excitement over the opportunity to share what I know with you. I am the only author in this field to be credentialed in both sexual health and food, having worked and presented internationally and conducted research on the joint topic over the course of my career.
