Dessert: Heavenly Or Sinful? Consumption, Carnality and Spirituality in Food Advertising
Food as a commodity does not solely represent nourishment; it conveys cultural and social values that are consumed by the self and transferred to denote the self. This paper examines the dimensions of a particular type of food and its complex representational associations with sexuality and femininity, first by considering the historical lineage of its cultural importance and then by conducting a content analysis of its representation in modern advertising. Understanding the fascination in connections between food and sex provides a creative and potentially informative way of exploring, experiencing and developing our humanity.
