Firstly, What Is A Food Fetish?
Food fetishes are where a person gets aroused by situations involving food.
It refers to a non-sexual play with food.
For example, certain fruits like bananas, cucumbers, and foods like hot dogs and sausages are purported to cause sexual arousals.
Their penis-like shape can look like substitutes for a sex toy, or a body part.
Sometimes, it’s simple things like the texture of the food, or the way it melts or spreads!
The Obsession Of Food Fetishes
Using Food As A Substitute For Body Parts
Remember Hannah and Carl’s Jr. Condom commercial?
The advertisement illustrated how to put a condom on a carrot.
Another example is the movie, Fast Times at Ridgemont and the oral sex lesson, where a carrot mimicked the illustrations.
Sexualising Food & Drink Rituals
We have all seen scenes in movies where there’s a sissy dating a dominatrix as she’s using food to dominate her willing subject.
In adult films, we quite often see scenes of a local mistress using food to entice a lover.
These are sexual experiences, but day to day rituals can be seen as fetish.
In some, watching someone biting downon a food with their teeth can cause sexual arousal.
To most people, a cup of hot coffee in the morning brings a sense of happiness and comfort.
It assures us that our morning hours will be spent awake and alert.
For others, the smell of coffee scares up an alternative feeling that arouses the senses.
In an era when nothing is shocking, the internet has managed to fetishise our cup of morning coffee.
It takes little more than a Google search to yield stock sex-related images of sexy women in lingerie with a cup of steaming coffee.
Matthew Knows About Food Fetishes!
Actor, Matthew McConaughey, argues that sometimes he is too sexually aroused by a particular type of food.
The actor confesses that at times he gets a thrill out of food and stops eating.
He says that how the food tastes are his most heightened sense and prefer to remain hungry rather than get aroused.
McConaughey admitted this to In-style magazine: “I think food is sexy.”
He said that most of the time, if he tastes food and loves it, he gets tingles down his spine.
He must then stop and take a break.
The actor also revealed that he loves the smell of suntan lotion.
He says the scent conjures up images of girls in skimpy swimwear.
When asked what’s sexy against suntan lotion, he said that the sun oil smells like coconuts, and that reminds him of bikinis.
Our Relationship With Food Fetishes
Whether you think these habits sound normal, funny, or merely strange, psychologists argue that everyone has at least one food fetish.
Food fetishes can also arise due to a situation, or the place.
Just yesterday I was explaining to my friend that I was craving some me-time.
I was saying that I wanted to sit in a peaceful place, drinking strong, hot coffee out of a nice cup whilst watching beautiful people go by.
That’s not a sexual thing, and it’s just a cup of coffee, but the relationship we have with certain foods and beverages is quite emotive.
Our brain holds a lot of fascinating secrets.
Think about it… what are your food fetishes?
What foods excite you?
It doesn’t have to be sexual – our food fetishes give an intense devotion or aversion to a particular food or food combination.
