Recently there has been increased awareness of feeders, wherein sexual arousal and gratification is stimulated through a person gaining body fat another eating-related sexual behaviour is sitophilia. This is a fetish in which the individual has an erotic attraction to (and derives sexual arousal from) food. Sitophilia can also include sexual arousal caused by erotic situations involving food. This may comprise many different types of activity including those who:
Eat one particular foodstuff from the body of another (e.g., licking chocolate mousse off the breasts of a naked partner).
Eat a variety of foods or a whole meal off somebody’s naked body (such as the Japanese practice of nyotaimori – see below).
Use a foodstuff to enhance a particular sexual act (e.g., sucking on a lime before engaging in oral sex to swell the taste buds and create more sensitivity when licking genital tissue). This could also technically involve the use of a foodstuff to enhance genital lubrication (e.g., use of olive oil).
Use food as a method of control and/or flagellation in sadomasochistic activity (e.g., the throwing of oranges at the buttocks as a from of sexual humiliation or punishment). Dominant partners can also choose to control their submissive partner’s eating habits and food intake as a regular part of their sex play. Some dominant individuals will restrain their submissive partner’s hands, and order them to eat from a dish on the floor. This can be a highly sexually charged situation for those into erotic humiliation
And a myriad of other behaviours including drinking bodily fluids in another drink or using food during sex.
Think this sounds obscure and like nothing you have come across before (no pun intended) think again, how many of you have seen American Pie where Jim is left alone with a certain apple pie, or 91/2 weeks where Kim Basinger is fed food while blindfolded.
Now in fact this fetish has taken such a grip of the nation that food orgy parties are becoming London’s worst kept secret. Want to know what happens without having to attend, well what you would imagine really, various people invite like minded friends and strangers to bring either an erotic arrangement of food on a dish to share, or food that feels sensuous when rubbed onto a partner and licked off. Afterwards, everyone soaks in a hot tub. There are also those who use foodstuffs to make the sexual act messier.
Sitophilia can also play a part in the activity of ‘food play’ (which doesn’t always have sexual connotations so should not be used synonymously). For instance, nyotaimori and nantaimori (the obscure Japanese practice of ‘female body presentation’ and ‘male body presentation’ respectively) is not usually seen as either fetishistic or paraphilic for those who participate. This practice is also known as “body sushi” and involves people eating food from the body of a naked person). Some websites have turned such behaviour into an art form.
Some reports claim that the person covered in food has to learn to withstand the coldness of the food and is trained to lie and keep still for hours while those around eat off their body. However, the likelihood is depending on the organiser, many people will simply be models who have been hired for their beauty rather than their ability to keep warm while naked and covered in cold food.
Indeed, if you look online the likelihood is you can find many forums where people discuss at length various sexual encounters they have had either autonomously with food or with a partner…we’ll leave you to either search for descriptions in your own time or leave it up to your imagination but suffice to say there is indeed a market for food porn and that niche is growing daily. So next time your partner has left her favourite toy at home, perhaps it is not a mad dashed trip to Ann Summers that is needed, but just a trip to your local supermarket…
