Top Five Sexy Foods

Ever since I read pebble’s provocative post about sexuality and food sensuality I’ve been haunted by the dishes that drive me wild.  (BTW pebble, I need to see that picture of cherries, Stat!).  Now, I’m not necessarily lusting to eat all of my favorite dishes, I am lusting to look.  I want to see hot pictures of food.  In the throes of my passion, I have composed a little list of my top five sexy foods.  After you’ve seen my list, don’t forget to tell me yours!

Chocolate Mousse

Sexy dressed-up or a little messy.  The dark chocolate whirlpool just shivers me timbers.

Single-Origin Olives


Don’t even front like those olives don’t blow your mind.  You know they got the saltiness you need.

Assorted Gelato Under Glass


Where’s a shrinking ray gun when you neeeeeed one?!  I want to do the backstroke in the chocolate.
Spiced Cranberry Bread Pudding

Spiced Cranberry Bread Puddings

Ok, so I discovered this one while I was searching for sexy food pics.  But once I saw the red-black cranberries soaking into the bread I knew I had to have this in my life.

Open Figs

There’s a reason some things are classic.


  1. I’ve been waiting to comment so my list feels right. I think I need a few more hours. :)

  2. I hear you. It’s a tough call. Honestly, I think my list changes on the daily. But I do have some all time favs up there, especially the mousse.

  3. So after much thought… and for today…

    1. I’m gonna have to agree with you on the figs. Adds some toast, honey and gorgonzola and it’s like a crazy swinger party.

    2. Green sliced mango’s. I read a romance novel with green sliced mango’s in one of the scenes and I’ve thought they were sexy ever since.

    3. Caviar. Probably just because it has such an elitist quality. Never actually had it before though.

    4. Pastry. Especially pain au chocolat (spelling?). The flakey lightness mixed with the deep creamy chocolate filling. Yum.

    5. Honey. Because it’s beautiful, sticky and sweet.

  4. Hot. I’m definitely with you on the honey. Today, I am really feeling the visual sexiness of baked salmon.
