Lesbian Food Porno
Are you worried that you won't find something you like to eat in Lesvos? Don't be. Lesvos may have the best cuisine in Greece and these photos, which I have called Lesbian Food Porno, offer testimony to that claim. They look good enough to eat.
Someone asked me why I titled this page of photos of food from the island of Lesvos 'Lesbian Food Porno'. Actually the person who asked me was a woman, not a Lesbian in either sense of the word, from the island of Lesvos, or gay. And her asking did not come from curiosity but was more like a statement about why would I associate food with something as disgusting as pornography. But let's get real for a moment.
A few years ago my friend, a former North Carolina basketball player told me as we were watching a game " You realize that college basketball is pornography for old men". It was a funny idea. These kids running up and down the court in shorts with these old men watching and salivating. But he did not mean it sexually. Or maybe he did, but I began to look at what he was saying in a non-sexual way. Of course we associate the word pornography with sex, and a sordid kind of sex done in secret, not healthy sex between two consenting adults for the purpose of having babies or giving and receiving pleasure. Pornography is something nasty that perverts do, unless of course you are a person who likes photos of naked men and women in which case it is normal and there are no negative associations with the word.
But really pornography is looking at people doing what you wish you could be doing. It can also be looking at a beautiful body and desiring it or admiring it as something beautiful. I don't deny that there is pornography geared towards people who are perverted but let's face it: Many of us get off on photos of naked people having sex. Some of us enjoy them and some of us avoid them and some of us are indifferent.
But what is pornography but idolatry? You are worshipping the human form. Or a part of the body. Or the sexual act. But if looking at pornography is idolatry isn't looking at art? Or antique cars? Or watching sports? Or looking at photos of food?
So this page, which was created with seduction in mind, does seem to fit the profile of pornography. It is food pornography. Maybe food is just like sex. You can use it to sustain yourself and eat the same nutritious meal every day, just as you can have sex just to make babies, or you can make it into something important and different dishes become objects of desire. Just as sex can become a perversion so can food. Either one can take over our life.
So calling this collection of food photos 'Lesbian Food Porno' is not too far off base. I am sure some people will find a way to be offended and someone searching for gay women doing it in mountains of mashed potatoes may be annoyed, disappointed or feel that they were somehow duped. But to those who would be offended and those looking for gay porno, and everyone else, put your judgment aside and enjoy these photos which are meant to seduce you into coming to the island of Lesvos. I have not airbrushed them to make them more artistic or enticing. This is just naked Lesbian food.
