Review: Food Porn Anthology

Food Porn AnthologyWhen it comes to erotica and comics, most readers are too shy to venture into this realm, because of the subject matter. Sex Criminals, from Image, has been successful throughout the mainstream audience because sex is used as a plot device versus being the narrative. Sex, from Image as well, is more direct, as it tackles some sex and lifestyle related questions to versions of some well-known characters. Both examples, still never quite “puts their foot” totally in the water, but the recent anthology, Food Porn, doesn’t always only not shy away, from the subject matter it full on embraces it, sensuality and all intermixed with the insatiability of food.

Food Porn Anthology, the sizable tome is divided into “savory,” ” sweet” and “sweet and savory” sections, signaling the reader of just what type of food to expect from each tale. In the first story “Following Directions,” a couple tries a new recipe, which unexpectedly gives way to a demon who unlocks all their secret desires, for sex and food. In “Safe Harbor,” a local fisherman, finds a merman and a merwoman, and has quite a ravenous time with them both.  In “Food Talk,” a couple where one is new to a transition, renew their love through food and ultimately through sex. In ‘Quick Distraction,” one half of a couple struggles to cook dinner by themselves for the first time, while the other watches on and criticizes, until the other decides to turn the tables and turn the other one on. In “The Lion and The Lamb,” a couple hilariously describes a recipe while making love.

In “Knead and Rise,” an elvish couple decides to some morning fun when the local delivery woman stops by their bakery earlier than expected, and joins in the fun. In” Breakfast In Bed,” two chefs, who just so happen to be a couple, one half decides to make breakfast for them every morning, until the other stops and tells her boyfriend that she wants something just as much, sex in the morning. In “Complex Spice,” A girlfriend comes home from a trip, terribly missing her boyfriend and his cooking, which turns into an orgy of food ad sex between them. In “Overload,” a demon stops an intruder which turns into a wild sex romp which involves a whole lot of chocolate.

In “A La Mode,” a woman and her robot boyfriend, recreate their own version of that infamous scene from When Harry Met Sally. In “Raspberry Heart,” a man must have sex to fight gelatinous chocolate mousse monster, in this funny story. In “A Little Different,” a couple while enjoying food, decides to switch roles in their sex life for one night, leading to unbridled passion being unleashed. In “Nectar,” a demon couple indulges in some nectar and in a threesome. In “Crumble,” a couple who engages in S&M, decides to engage in some breakfast and some role play. In “Seaside Sweethearts,” a couple having a picnic for breakfast enjoy their food and each other. In “Red Summer,” a crush at an open-air market turns from a love of pomegranates to a love for each other. In “Red Bean Buns,” while working on a recipe, endlessly tease other, before finally indulging into sex. In the last story “The Munchies,” an intense craving for food lead a couple to having some afternoon delight.

Overall, a fun and amatory book that does not shy away of voracious appetites people have for food and sex, as it a true celebration of sex positivity. The stories contained are all funny, sexy, and relatable. The art by al the artists, each beautiful and complement the stories well. Altogether, an excellent tribute to food and sex in all its glory.

“I don’t think retailers or readers were prepared for how great this comic was going to be,” notes Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson. “Given Image’s track record with music-related comics, I would think everybody knows we’re going to bring the awesome with a project like this, but the first printing sold out so quickly, it’s obvious people need to be reminded. In other words: Don’t miss out a second time!”
