As food imagery has become more and more prevalent in academia, the arts, and mass media, the rise of the term “Food Porn” has gained increasing popularity. Yet, food porn, much like traditional forms of pornography, has a wavering definition. What is food porn exactly? What is the relationship to food and sex? Is there one and what does it matter? Hear the answers from a gathering of experienced food writers, critics, and TV personalities in FOOD + PORN.
