Oh, it’s a beautiful thing when food imagery is used in sex scenes. It’s all 9 1/2 Weeks spliced together with Iron Chef – wouldn’t that be the very best in a sensual interlude? Unless we’re talking snack foods, as Kathleen discovered:
Thank you for pointing out the Books on the Knob website. I have had a lot of fun downloading the free ebooks. One of these was The Bite Before Christmas by Heidi Betts. In the story “All I Vant For Christmas”, I read something that belongs in the “The What Not to Write” category.
Sex linked with food is heavy in this story (vampire hero thinks the heroine smells like peaches and cinnamon, sex talk with steak and ice cream sundaes mentioned, etc.), but this one … well….
Not that he was worried about her level of readiness. Her nipples were pointy little diamonds in the centers of her full, luscious
breasts, her breaths were coming in tiny shallow pants, and he could feel the dampness between her legs just from where they pressed
together like Twinkies inside their cellophane wrapper.
I found myself trying to find reason in this statement. OK, Twinkies are filled with cream. That would be a positive for a man. And
then logic broke down. What woman would want their thighs compared to two Twinkies that are still wrapped in cellophane!!!
Perplexed and not hungry,
Hmmm. You think that dude on the cover there thinks about Twinkies every now and again? Or it not part of his diet?
But most importantly: time for a pop quiz! If your significant other compared your thighs to Twinkies, what would be your response?
