Why So Much Sex on a Food Blog?

sexyfood03 imageIf you’ve stumbled across this site and reached the top of the blog (where this post will stay, for the near future), you’re probably wondering why there’s so much sexual content.

Well, in addition to being a food writer, I’m a sex educator.

And sex and food are both about pleasure, aren’t they?

So I’ve finally brought my two passions together, which is why you’re seeing regular posts about sex and food–such as my weekly “Sexy Feast” posts for Seattle Weekly‘s Voracious blog.

Bigger news: The Sexy Feast column came to life in early 2011, as I collaborated with area restaurants in hosting a Sexy Feast dinner series.

I worked with each restaurant’s chef in designing a delicious, multi-course meal full of “lessons in love.” Then, much as a winemaker would talk about fabulous food and wine pairings, I paired each course with commentary about what the food teaches about sex and relationships.

A highlight: I did a Sexy Feast dinner on Lummi Island at Willows Inn, which The New York Times recently named one of the world’s “10 Restaurants Worth a Plane Ride.”

Here is the video about Sexy Feast as it ran on Evening Magazine as the lead story on February 10.

And here is a story about Sexy Feast on Seattleite.

    I couldn’t agree more. I think food and life always go hand in hand, particularly when you are forming strong relationships. As we all know, one of the strongest relationships we form is with our partner. So much of that connections happens physically in the bed room and over meals. I think your exploration of how these two work together is wonderful.
