Whet My Appetite


Fire Island, NY

Beach Picnic

My weekend kicked off with the stimulating words of the Titillating Tongues at erotic poetry night. Every 3rd Friday, the poets tantalize with their prose at Le Poisson Rouge. They left my ears burning with whispers of delight as I prepared tidbits for the next day’s get away. I have been craving to go to the beach, and was off to Fire Island. I have very little knowledge about the beaches that line the 400 miles of coastline alongside Long Island and did very little research, but I decided on the one that sounded becoming to me.  Fire Island, sounds like a good place to fan the flames of my desire.  I filled my beach bag with homemade pasta salad and strawberry lemonade, chunks of watermelon, a huge piece of chocolate fudge layer cake from Junior’s, that was gifted to me, and a new snack product to sample, Exotic Harvest vegetable chips by Terra. At 9 o’clock the next morning, all decked out in my beach garb, I started on my journey. The food seduction began right away with an irresistible iced coffee that teased, “your straw never had it so good”. Oozing with whipped cream and chocolate syrup, I happily boarded the LIRR train buzzed and looking forward to the Sayville stop. The premonitions of what was to come continued to

warn, when a billboard ad for Hubert’s lemonade read “consuming this product may cause joy”. The shuttle transported us the rest of the landlocked way to the Sayville Ferry. A gracious offering of food and drink was my pleasure while I waited. Sipping on a margarita, the floating Empress took me far away to escape for the day. On the recluse beach I found a lovely spot to lay, intoxicated and hypnotized by the ocean waves, I fell into a deep sleep, resting in nature’s peace. Once awakened, I drifted to yet another place, escorted by water taxi to Cherry Grove for a seafood plate, where I was welcomed to the land of the erotic sex life of food in the south bay.

Seafood Bucket

Images of blissful cherries dangled juicily to greet me on my way to The Cherry Lane Café. Live entertainment, a red-lit room, a menu featuring bottomless mimosas and a philosophy to eat, drink and be cherry sounded like a fine afternoon.

I met two sensationalists at the bar. One, I’ll call Pleasure, the other, I’ll call Desire. They amused me with their charm and playful ways and were my guides for the remainder of the day. My seafood bucket, potently erotic with gluttonous amounts of clams, mussels and shrimp fascinated the eye when they arrived. We each practiced eating seductively, consuming the energy of Aphrodite. Sucking them, reveling in them, lips glistened by the juices that trickled down our chins, swooning as we swallowed, fully satisfied in the presence of the divine.

Cherry Grove

Sweet Licks

For dessert, it was Sweet Licks, a double scoop of strawberry cheesecake ice cream and a sugar cone for my kicks. With the slogan to “lick me until I scream”, I simply could not resist. Down to the last lusty bite, it was absolutely delicious.

The sun started to set and it was time for me to be on my way, my beachfront play was almost done for the day.

Boarding the shuttle to head back to the City, I looked toward the pleasure island, a rainbow shone over the Cherry Grove, where I treasured surrender in a pot of gold. The “islanders” were vivacious and live life in full abandon. I pledged to forever more surrender to my pleasure and desire, to set my kitchen, Café L’Amour, to a burning white fire, to reveal the hidden secrets in eating, and to satisfy the twin appetites of food and sex.

 My weekend ended with a glass of Dr. Ruth’s Vin d’Amour (really) and episode 2 of Showtime’s “Masters of Sex”.

“California Dreamin'”

Advertised all over the NYC Metro subway system, the new ‘SexyPop’ popcorn marketing campaign naturally caught my attention.  What can’t sex sell?  Just the mere mention of the word ‘sex’ in a product’s name makes it desirable.  “SexyPop popcorn…The Joy of Sexy”,… “Hmmm, definitely a good brand of popcorn for a culinary seductress to have in her pantry”, I reasoned, as I set out on a quest to purchase a bag of SexyPop popcorn to try it for myself.  To my surprise, I could not find the popcorn at any of the stores I visited!  I thought that was odd, considering the big marketing campaign and all.  I figured it’ll just ‘show up’ on a day I’m not looking for it.  But, it didn’t. It became exceedingly more important to me that I have this popcorn. It would be a cute take away for a picnic I’m planning.  I stopped in every grocer I passed.  But to no avail, I did not find the popcorn in any of the snack food aisles that I searched.  One morning on my commute to the office, I was serenaded by a local artist, Len Xiang, who sang his rendition of “California Dreamin’” to me.  I purchased his CD a few weeks prior to that and let him know that I really enjoyed his version of the song, it’s one of my all-time favorites.  That was hot! I rode that euphoric sound wave all day.  Xiang only  added to my desire to have that SexyPop popcorn!

The SexyPop ad worked out well as the backdrop to Xiang’s exclusive performance, and indeed, it was my joy to have such a sexy start to my day!  I went to the SexyPop website and ordered a sample case with one bag of popcorn for each tempting flavor: Black Pepper, French Butter, Lightly Salted, Bangin’ Cheddar, Bodacious Banana, and Brazilian Coconut.  The Bodacious Banana is not as outrageous as it sounds. The banana flavor is subtle and the popcorn is airy and lite. I am tickled pink to give a bag of this seductive popcorn to my picnic date!
