Appetite for seduction
Chicagoans speculate on how seemingly innocent foods could be beneficial in the bedroom.
Belmont Avenue between Wilton and Clark streets
Would you rather have great food or great sex?R Great sex. I could make my own orgasmic meal.
What do you cook that’s orgasmic?
R Blueberry muffins. I make them from scratch. I go out and buy a pint of blueberries and I make the dough myself. My secret ingredient is cinnamon. I’m Mexican, so I like to put cinnamon in everything.
O I bake chocolate cupcakes. They’re orgasmic.
You don’t just go to the store and get a Betty Crocker mix, do you?
O No. I mix it all up, dude. Start from scratch with the Toll House chocolate chunks. It’s kind of like foreplay: If you really put your effort into it and play your cards right, it’ll pay off. Food is so basic, yet so good, especially right now in these tough financial time when food’s not as aplenty. But sex—you can get sex all over or just go home and pleasure yourself. And it’s free.
Have you every let sex and food intermingle?
O I used to like to have sundaes.
Sundaes in bed—that sounds messy. Are you talking about a hot fudge sundae?
O Yeah, dude. You feed each other and things just kind of progress from there.
So when you say you want to make a sundae, you mean you want to make more than a sundae.
O Sometimes, yeah. It depends who I’m with.
R I’m different. I like to use peanut butter, chocolate, popsicles.
Peanut butter in bed—never heard that one before.
R Foreplay! It takes longer to lick off, so you have to work a little harder. And that’s not a bad thing.
Is it necessary to prep the bed for the peanut butter?
R No, you don’t use a lot of it, just enough.
Do you think food is sexy?
O Food makes me very happy, and very open to other things, especially if you create an orgasmic meal.
