Fusing Food and Sensuality: The Sex on a Plate Movement

January 14, 2010 Culture, Eyecandy, Women 5 Comments

Food blogger Jennifer Iannolo has been writing about how food ties into sensuality since 2004 when she wrote her first manifesto, On Food and Sensuality. Of course these days, she’s doing a little more than writing about the concept.

Beginning in her home state of New York, Iannolo is planning to kick off a series of events nationwide to bring sensuality back to your palate. Guess which metropolis follows New York City on this Sex on a Plate extravaganza? That’s right. Los Angeles. We’ll bring you the deets as they become available. But remember: you heard it here first.

“‘Sex on a plate’ comes from my first manifesto, On Food and Sensuality, written in 2004 when I discovered that the pre-consumption sight and/or smell of certain foods evokes a visceral reaction in me that is so sensually satisfying, the eating is almost an afterthought,” Iannolo says, quickly adding: “Almost.”

And because we don’t do anything half-ass, we’re bringing you the original photo that was used in the flier. Just promise us you won’t show up at any of the Sex on a Plate events assuming you’re going to a food orgy. Unless I invite you as my plus-one, of course. Then, baby, it’s on.

Yeah, that’s miss food blogger herself. Bet now you wanna follow her on Twitter, too, don’tcha? @foodphilosophy. Uh huh. You’re welcome.

The Hottest Bod in The World

Mid-December, we told you about a contest featuring some serious man meat, Hottest Bod in the World contest.

The results, ladies and gentlemen, are in: the winner, with over 20,000 votes is 26-year-old Jordon Nemitz and he’s coming to Hollywood later this month–in the form of a billboard, to be displayed for our oggling delight (as we battle gridlock traffic-induced nosebleeds) above the W at Hollywood and Vine.

Until then, we have secured some exclusive shots from last week’s NYC photo shoot with the Hottest Bod winner! Yes, you can click for bigger images. And yes, we know you love us. If you’re really nice, maybe we’ll bring you along when this hunk of man comes to town to party in a few weeks.

Until then…

Porn Star for the Neutering and Spaying of Animals

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, otherwise known as PETA, is well-known for its controversial, largely WTF? campaigns. Just last month, they got hell (literally) for some ads featuring Playboy model Joanna Kruga naked save for a crucifix.

Now, once again exercising their cleverness (not really?), they’re making a point about fixing your pets with porn star Sasha Grey:

Um… OK, PETA. But, look, we forgive you. I mean, it’s Sasha-effin-Grey.

And here we thought some things were sacred. For your holiday viewing pleasure: footage from a security camera in a Vegas elevator.

I’ll tell you one thing: it’s a good thing I’m an exhibitionist. Who thinks they should do an ATM one next? I hear people really get freaky up against those ATMs… especially in Manhattan.

We already told you about hot Sex Bloggers 2010 Calendar, but if you’ve still not made up your mind about how to keep tabs on your social life this coming year, let us tell you about the 2010 Bombshell Alliance Calendar.

For 20 bucks, you get a calendar and a killer compilation of music with tracks from each calendar girl. Not that you needed any more incentive to see these ladies up against your wall all year long.

It’s A Hot-Off!

Look at those bodies. It’s the final round of Hottest Bod in the World contest, run by Body Heat, a men’s fragrance from Parfums de Coeur.

Gratuitous contests like these make life worth living. I don’t know how many countries are represented or whether every hot hunk in the world was given a fair chance and I don’t really give a damn. Here are the three finalists and that’s more than enough for this woman.

If you can pry your eyes for a second, I’ll tell you about this thing. These three dudes are engaged in the last round. Their points from this vote will go to their overall scores, bringing them one step closer to World Hotness Domination, or, rather, a billboard over the new W in Hollywood and $10,000 to burn around town (which will last him all of two minutes the way we roll here, but, hey, welcome to L.A.)!

A guy’s rank in the competition is determined by a point system: they get one point for every time a visitor to the site rates him hot and 15 points for each fan they get on Facebook. The contest also involves a series of duels, for which the winner gets 5 points for every Facebook fan their opponents have.

Call me primitive, but there is nothing hotter than seeing men duel.

So go poke around the site and pick a hunk to drool over. The winner’s going to need someone to show him around town once he gets here, right? I’d volunteer, but I’ve myself my own out-of-this-world hot hunk right in my bed waiting for a different kind of final round, so it’s all you, baby. Yeah, I thought you’d like that.

Nudes and Catholic Iconography for the Love of Animals

December 10, 2009 Advertising, Culture, Eyecandy, Women 1 Comment

Playboy model Joanna Krupa is all tangled up in a controversy regarding her latest contribution to the expansive catalog of controversial PETA ads.

Krupa, a practicing Catholic, is depicted in one PETA’s “Be An Angel For Animals” ads nude with only a crucifix to cover her naughty bits. Another ad features her topless, holding a dog to cover her chest, and a dangling rosary.

Needless to say, people are pissed. We here at Sex and the 405 think it’s in poor taste, but this is PETA, after all. They love to court controversy.

In the words of Lisa Lange, senior vice president of communications for PETA: “Sex does sell.” No explanation about how Catholicism fits into all of this, other than the fact that Kruga is a practicing Catholic.

Sex Blogger Calendar Girls–Hot Off The Press!

November 8, 2009 Culture, Eyecandy, Women 1 Comment

calendarThey have sex, they write about sex, they educate others about sex, and they fight for the freedom to enjoy sex in its many variations.

They’re sex bloggers and they’re dressing down once again for the 2010 Sex Blogger Calendar.

All proceeds from sales go to help the Sex Work Awareness, an organization with a mission to educate and empower sex workers, as well as conduct research about the sex industry, develop public education initiatives and advocate for sex workers’ rights.

So basically you’re paying to look at beautiful and talented women and doing your part to protect this country’s entrepreneurial spirit.

Seriously, can you think of anything better to spend $20 on? I didn’t think so.

Gamers Won’t Be Seduced, Will Stare At Random Cleav Instead

That Steam allows the objectification and sexualization of female characters in a variety of its games but refuses to accept a game about actually engaging with women in a more interactive fashion is astonishingly backward.

FetLife Is Not Safe for Users

That the site doesn’t take measures to protect user content and has shown incompetence or negligence in regard to user privacy, all the while prohibiting victims from warning others about predatory behavior creates an environment where it is nearly impossible for members of the community to take care of themselves and one another. By enabling FetLife to continue espousing a code of silence, allowing the spinning self-created security issues as “attacks,” and not pointing out how disingenuous FetLife statements about safety are, we are allowing our community to become a breeding ground for exploitation.

Why You Should Vote No On Prop 35

Should people who benefit (parents, siblings, children, roommates!) from the earnings of “commercial sex acts” (any sexual conduct connected to the giving or receiving of something of value) be charged with human trafficking? Should someone who creates obscene material that is deemed “deviant” be charged as with human trafficking? Should someone who profits from obscene materials be charged with human trafficking? Should people transporting obscene materials be charged with human trafficking? Should a person who engages in sex with someone claiming to be above the age of consent or furnishing a fake ID to this effect be charged with human trafficking? What if I told you the sentences for that kind of conviction were eight, 14 or 20 years in prison, a fine not to exceed $500,000, and life as a registered sex offender?

Pretty and Calls Herself a Geek? Attention Whore!

If you are a woman, you might be given a chance to prove yourself in this community. Since there is no standard definition of what a “geek” is and it will vary from one judge to the next anyway, chances of failing are high (cake and grief counseling will be available after the conclusion of the test!). If you somehow manage to succeed, you’ll be tested again and again by anyone who encounters you until you manage to establish yourself like, say, Felicia Day. But even then, you’ll be questioned. As a woman, your whole existence within the geek community will be nothing but a series of tests — if you’re lucky. If you aren’t lucky, you’ll be harassed and threatened and those within the culture will tacitly agree that you deserve it.

Cuddle Chemical? Moral Molecule? Not So Fast

Zak’s original field, it turns out, is economics, a far cry from the hearts and teddy bears we imagine when we consider his nickname. But after performing experiments on generosity, Zak stumbled on the importance of trust in interactions, which led him, rather inevitably, to research about oxytocin. Oxytocin, you might remember, is a hormone that has been linked previously to bonding — between mothers and children primarily, but also between partners. What Zak has done is take the research a step further, arguing in his recent book, The Moral Molecule, that oxytocin plays a role in determining whether we are good or evil.

How to Avoid Pissing off a Stripper

Let’s talk about the strippers. Whether they like to be half-naked or not, whether they enjoy turning you on or not, there’s one thing they all have in common: they’re working. Whether you think that taking one’s clothes off for money is a great choice of career is really beside the point (is it a possibility for you to make $500 per hour at your job without a law degree? Just asking). These women are providing fantasy, yes, but that is their job. And as a patron of the establishment where they work, you need to treat them like you would anyone else who provides a service to you.
