I realized I put my initial announcement in the wrong place. Whoops!

I'm delighted to share the news that I've been asked to contribute to an upcoming anthology on Food and Philosophy. I'll be covering the topic of (shocker) sensuality.

Very, very exciting! Smiling

Ok, Miss, now that I've listened to the podcast, I can comment.

Re the entertaining techniques... the gentleman should always prepare well so he can devote his time to the lady. Part of this is that he should practice making the meal. This is no time for experimentation.

Try to find out what she likes. No point in making mushroom risotto if she's allergic to fungi.

Further, he should stick to lighter meals. Romance is never fully realised with a bloated stomach Sad Chew on each other as an alternative Smiling

Dress well & hold her chair. Relax but don't get drunk.

Wear clean underwear...

Moi?

Sensuality and Shilling

I've started to tackle the topic of food and sensuality head-on with my latest podcast. This should be an interesting conversation starter. Eye

Oh, and boys, the Bachelor's Boot Camp has started. Smiling

I'm beginning my research for this essay, and so far have discovered some interesting works by Aristotle (thank you, Shayne!) and Epicurus on the subject of the senses. Any other recommendations would be welcomed, and it's important to note that I'm looking at a broad spectrum of philosophers. There are some pomos in that group (i.e. Dewey and Kant), but the more I know, the better armed I am.

Many thanks!

Switching to Guns

Thank you, Casey. I posted a bit of a rant today about the shilling currently being done in the marketplace to sell "sensuality" (read: aphrodisiacs), so I intend to come out with intellectual guns blazing.

I've decided to craft a tight t-shirt that says "Guns by Aristotle."

I'm afraid...

But don't let that stop you, Jennifer. I anticipate your upcoming posts with salivating glands, as I'm sure many others do, as well...

I know that, you dolt! And

... "phrigid" you phool.

This was a phailed attempt at humor at the expense of those, on another site, who phirst phaulted you for sensuality.

I'll take my phailed phunnies elsewhere. Smiling

Frigidity

Casey, perhaps you can encourage the gentleman below to rethink the ideal of sensuality. He seems a bit...frigid.

Sensuality?
