Suggestion/Question[edit]

In Kurt Vonnegut's "Breakfast of Champions" there is a very direct example of food porn; an alternate world with only bland, tasteless, synthesized food, where men go to dirty movie theaters and masturbate to videos of people eating delicious food. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 208.103.225.184 (talk) 16:40, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

Marks and spencer are kings in food porn. According to the book they published themselves for their 125th anniversary, Marks In Time, their customers stated they like buying food in M&S because of their advertising. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 213.49.236.9 (talk) 17:34, 15 May 2012 (UTC)

Borderline Vandalism[edit]

I removed the following from "see also" because they're not relevant:

Misc.[edit]

Err... are you sure that calling something porn is neutral? Maybe "jocular" or "familiar" -- Error

Yes, because Wikipedia didn't invent the term, it's describing popular use of the term. AtomSmith 21:13, 13 October 2006 (UTC)


Dear Wikipedia,

What the hell is wrong with you? Why does this exist?

Yours sincerely, Alechmania Lechman State College, Penn. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.74.158.0 (talk) 23:05, 5 March 2012 (UTC)


Cleanup and References tags...[edit]

This reads a bit like OR, but there may be a "real" cultural meme here. Anyone have references? Also, some of the language borders on POV, and is at the very least non very "encyclopedic" in tone. I don't like the idea of Wikipedia stating that Iron Chef has "very little educational value", for example, as a FACT. --Dante Alighieri | Talk 06:39, 5 October 2006 (UTC)


I agree. I'm chianging it to "little practical value." AtomSmith 21:14, 13 October 2006 (UTC)

Citations[edit]

Added some more. There are 53 citations in Google Scholar which add academic credibility to the term as more than a neologism. 59.167.59.36 (talk) 09:30, 4 April 2008 (UTC)

Doubtful[edit]

Another possible meaning is referring to the attractiveness and presentation style of some cooking show hosts, such as Nigella Lawson.

That's ridiculous. The term isn't used that way. Viriditas (talk) 10:31, 11 April 2014 (UTC)

Lead image[edit]

Worst lead image ever. This is not representative of the "food porn" genre. Viriditas (talk) 04:31, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
