Well, now the topic is front and center.  Are we all hopelessly addicted?

There's just something wrong & distasteful about the term "Food Porn".

Personally, I agree.  I'm uncomfortable with it, but it's out there -- and I am probably addicted to food photos.  The mac 'n cheese hot dog in the article has me mesmerized.

I follow a page on Facebook called "Food Porn". Not all food is porn...I reserve the term for pictures of food that actually does make my mouth water.
 
However, I can say that it hasn't desensitized me to enjoying good food. Rather, it inspires me to create in my own kitchen, or visit restaurants I otherwise might have passed by.

I agree.  There are many, many of us here that cook beautiful food or photograph it in dining establishments and I would never consider it "porn".

I like this online definition of "Food Porn" ....
 
<<..."In the United States, food porn is a term applied when "food manufacturers are capitalising on a backlash against low-calorie and diet foods by marketing treats that boast a high fat content and good artery-clogging potential".[2] The origin of the term was attributed to the Center for Science in the Public Interest[2] which began publishing a regular column called "Right Stuff vs. Food Porn" for its Nutrition Action Healthletter in January 1998.[5][6]".....>>

'Food Porn' was invented by the French.  They call it 'presentation'.
 
(Think of the difference between pantyhose and sheer stockings held in place by a lacy garter belt).

It can take many forms.
Maybe you just like it rough ...
 
(BTW, have you ever gone to this establishment if for nothing more than morbid curiousity?  If so, please give us a review!)

Presentation say the French? OK. Here is how you show a Juicy Lucy burger. This is my homemade version of Minnesota's favorite burger with the cheesy tongues Frenching each other.

Best explanation ever!
 
People get a negative connotation to "porn", because they think of it as sleazy. But all it is, is something that makes your heart race a little faster, piques your interest, and leaves you wanting more. Like the picture of that burger...which I now want very badly.
