Of porn and bondage

From the looks of things it seems like I’ve managed to conquer my chocolate addiction (at least four months since I last ate some), my WoW addiction (over two months since I last played) and my obsessive cleaning addiction when people come over (I’ve got a friend coming over for coffee this afternoon and so far I haven’t washed a lightbulb).

Unfortunately, I have a new addiction and it’s slowly taking over my life….

Food porn.

I mean you know that you’re addicted to food porn when you go to visit a friend in hospital who has been diagnosed with throat cancer and as a result of having a tracheotomy hasn’t had any food for 12+ days and won’t be having an food for quite some time to come and you still can’t talk about anything other than food and recipes!

I just couldn’t help myself.

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve ‘eaten through the eyecandy’ of every single cookbook Master owns (and that man has a *lot* of cookbooks) and because I still need my daily fix, I’ve branched out into the www of food porn. I really should give more thanks to the gods of the innernets for supplying me with a seemingly endless source of food porn.

A few recently favourites I’ve been drooling over are:

The Pioneer Woman

Smitten Kitchen

No Recipes

The Daring Kitchen – and all the wonderful daring bakers/cooks out there!

(I’m not going to link them because I’m not sure how they’d feel about getting pingbacks from my porn porn blog, but a quick google will get you to all of the sites.)

Master has his word porn and I have my food porn. They are our secret little behaviours that a lot of other people don’t really ‘get’. Although judging by the number of sites devoted to food porn on the innernets these days, my ‘secret little behaviour’ isn’t so secret and lots of people are also in the same boat of needing their daily gastronomical fix.

Since I started seriously counting calories and doing the weightloss thing in early March, I’ve discovered that vicarious eating is a good way to feel like you’ve had some yummy foods without the additional calories. It’s a ‘safe’ way of indulging.

Thinking about it now, I suppose my self-bondage was/is a vicarious way of playing. Tying yourself up is a good way of ‘giving up control’ while still actually keeping it. It’s a ‘safe’ way of indulging in fantasies as opposed to putting yourself in the hands of another when you really don’t know what they are going to do to you. Not that I feel that Master would harm me or anything, but sometimes it’s nice to be able to take the clamps off when they get too ouchie or give yourself equal measures of pleasure and pain. I find it a good way of  ‘seeing to my own needs’ and use it as more of a stress release than anything else.

Bondage is something that I’ve never really grown out and is something that I’m probably a little bit addicted to. I don’t need it every day of course, but if I go too long without it, like a junkie I’ll feel the itch and ropes, chains and clamps will need to be brought out in a hurry. I don’t need hours and hours of it though, twenty minutes is probably enough to scratch my itch; enough to allow me to feel the sense of being restrained, coccooned and somewhat squeezed. A sense of being a little bit under duress is what I’m after.

Thinking about food porn and bondage while sitting in front of the fire. Does it get any better than this?

  1. little did i know there was a website foodporn,com

    im an addict to watching Food TV what can i say
    foodnetwork.com and foodtv.ca

    1. Mmmm…I think I’ve going to have to check that one out!

      The only thing I don’t like with foodtv is when they have shows with really tight camera angles that move around so much you feel like you are watching the blair witch project. It kind of makes me nauseous. That’s why I can’t watch Nigella which is a shame because she is eyecandy and foodporn all mixed in one!

  2. You may want to try Bakerella (creator of the Cake Pop), Soy and Pepper (bento blog with amazing recipes), and perhaps, Cast Sugar.

    1. Mmmm…more food porn links! Thank you! I’ve also recently added The Repressed Pastry Chef, My Baking Addiction and Nook and Pantry.

      1. Haha, no problem, I have such a HUGE favorite folder of all things baked, and all things bento. 🙂 Another good one which I like is How to Eat a Cupcake, because, cupcakes are great. 😀
