  • Sex and Bacon


Food and sex: two universal experiences that can easily become addictive and all consuming. You don't need to look far - The Food Network, billboards, and TV spots, to name just a few - to witness firsthand the explosive combination of food and sex.

In Sex and Bacon, Sarah Katherine Lewis is a seductress whose observations about the interplay between food and sex are unusually delightful, sometimes raunchy, and always absorbing. Sex and Bacon is a unique type of lovefest, and Lewis is not your run-of-the-mill food writer.

A lusty eater who's spent the better part of her adult life as a sex worker, Lewis is as reckless as she is adventurous. She writes of eating whale and bone marrow as challenges she was incapable of resisting. With chapters that hone in on the categorically simple - fat, sugar, meat - Lewis infuses even the most quotidian meals and food memories with sensual observations and decadence worthy of savoring. Sex and Bacon is exuberant - a celebration that honors the rawness and base needs that are central to our experiences of both food and sex.
