SEX

On appetites: “Great food is like great sex. The more you have the more you want.” (From Gael Greene, the American writer and restaurant critic who single-handedly taught New York City about fine dining.)

 

On progression: “Good food does lead to sex. As it should.” (That’s Anthony Bourdain. We miss him.) 

 

On quality: “Fast sex is like cheap food. It doesn’t nourish the body or the soul.” (We *think* this was journalist Suzanne Fields.) 

 

On tradeoffs: “Sex without pain is like food with no taste.” (Are you shocked to find out that was Marquis de Sade?)

 

On neutrality: “Language, journalism, food, sex. All is politics.” (And finally, that’s Nawal El Saadawi.) 

Our third issue will explore desire, repression, resistance, and oppression through stories about women, food, and sex.
