Abstract

This is not a recipe for heterosex, nor making love, nor a recipe for heteronorms to be consumed at a table set for two with neatly folded napkins. This is a recipe that does not include a vintage Beaujolais nor a pricey Champagne; there will be no smoked salmon (unless it is smoked too much) and no steak, unless it is of an animal you have not yet heard of. There will be no butternut squash, nor precisely laid out vegetables upon your plate. In fact, there may be no plate. It is unlikely that there will be courses of any kind, and items will be needed you consider disgusting (but they might grow on you) or that may be in short supply. Traversing offal, extraordinary almost rotten-tasting cloudy natural wines, bodily fluids, urban grime, streets, tube stations, smells, sounds, movements and urban bodies of all kinds. This is a recipe like no other, which tries to capture how the consumption of food and wine is the consumption of far more than what appears before us on the table, and far more than what takes place in our mouths. This recipe is a list, a journey, and a memory and record of the confluence of unexpected ingredients that can join human and nonhuman bodies in an unforgettable orgy of urban de-categorisation: the best fucking you ever tasted.

KeywordsSex and sexuality; queerness; food and consumption; women's sexuality
