In search of the perfect erotic meal

Dr Esther Corona-Vargas

In recent times gastronomy has been recognized as a legitimate object of serious study as it is part of culture inasmuch as the arts and other cultural expressions. There is a strong link between food and sex as appetites and between gourmandise and sexuality as elaborate social constructions. Moreover, it has been recently suggested that a new world-wide interest in cooking, ingredients and techniques arose in the sixties and seventies simultaneously with the \'sexual revolution'\. Even if this is just a theory, what is a fact is that food is often linked with sexual activity, as a prelude or as a conclusion and that desire, and appetite for food and drink both lurk in the deep recesses of the hypothalamus.
