Food, glorious food. So much more of our lives center on it than we ever think about. We celebrate with it, comfort ourselves and others with it, use it in rituals, whether it’s holy communion or your traditional pizza-and-a-bad-movie on a Friday night and groan with sensual pleasure when it is so, so good. The scent of vanilla is often cited as being an attractant because it reminds gives people a feeling of happiness and safety: the smell of baking. Chocolate releases dopamine: the chemical of sexual and romantic love. It’s all about appetites.
And “Appetites” is the title of a new project by SeXis magazine that I’m very proud to say debuts with my piece I Eat, Therefore I Am about the fetish of feederism: people who either gain weight - lots of weight - on purpose or feed others as a means of sexual gratification. The story will be followed up with a Q&A written by The Beautiful Kind, interviewing a woman involved in the feederism lifesetyle. Be sure to keep checking in with SeXis for that and also, check out The Beautiful Kind’s smart and lovely website, which you can find here.
