“You learn a lot about someone when you share a meal together. If your date makes the experience uptight and restrictive, well, the sex is going to be horrible too. Eating is best when there is spontaneity and variety. I’m very Type-A, and many things in my life are about control and domination, but eating should be a submissive experience, where you let down your guard and enjoy the ride," the late celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain had once told Cosmo.
A perfect date is with a person who eats without fear, prejudice, or concerns about his or her appearance. Well, if you have aphrodisiac food on the menu, that helps too! So, here are some Anthony-approved sexiest foods and why they are such turn-ons:
They’re beautiful objects with so much flavour and juice. Damn sexy.
The Italians have it exactly right: a big family-style, eat-when-it’s-ready meal.
Because eating with your hands is incredibly sensual.
A woman eating fish eggs? Oh my God, sexy.
I’m not saying eating barbecue is the way to achieve world peace, but it won’t hurt.
A simmering red sauce and hunk of meat: smells, sounds, and tastes good.
Animal protein is a beautiful thing.
Current obses-sion: raw beef with uni (sea urchin), served on a shiso leaf.
