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.

Reviving a year-old thread that died a premature death.

Pork tenderloin, cheese sticks and a double cheeseburger at Triple X in West Lafayette:

Sadly true, but I remembered it so well that I could go right to the thread where it appeared, very much like my being able to make a vivid recollection of Liv Lindeland's image from (OMG) 44 years ago.

I was unable to see joerogo's pic.  Too bad.  I WAS able to see the Playboy centerfold pic.  Again, too bad.  I guess naked women with big hooters just don't do it for me.

I was hoping that this discussion might lead him to 're-publish' it.

And in so doing you took a "forewarned, conscious, voluntary" adult decision.  So, no complaining.
 
Usually, I find "pop-psych" to be navel-gazing dreck, but the generalizations that men are visual creatures and that women tend to be more curious appear once again to have been proven true.

lleechef, how dare you disparage MetroplexJim's "First."  You should be more respectful of the amount of time and effort he put into "admiring" that picture 44 years ago.

I found it quite interesting. But I'm glad naked women with big hooters don't do it for you.

Point taken.
 
But, let's not throw the baby out with the bath water.
 
Here's is where joerogo posted that extraordinarily memorable 'food porn' pic: http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/FindPost/654475 .
 
Joe, please re-post!
