This review is from: The Sex Life of Food (Paperback)
'The Sex Life of Food' seemed like an incredibly intriguing title for a book, which is what led me to pick up this excellent book.It wasn't quite what I was expecting, but it didn't disappoint.

The book explores the complex relationship between food, sex, sensuality, our history and who we are, covering all kinds of topics, such as:

whether certain foods are considered male or female;

aphrodisiacs; restaurant decor; comfort foods; food symbolism in fairy tales; the part food has played in politics and an excellent (and intelligently explored) chapter on cannabalism.

The book does jump around a little which may annoy some readers and its scope might be considered ambitious, but if you abandon youself and go with it, you won't be disappointed.

Lots of interesting facts, intelligent explorations of different topics, humour and a really pleasant narrative voice. Highly recommended.
