food porn

Food porn is a provocative term variously applied to a spectacular visual presentation of cooking or eating in advertisements, infomercials, cooking shows or other visual media, foods boasting a high fat and calorie content[1], exotic dishes that arouse a desire to eat[2] or the glorification of food as a substitute for sex.[3]

In the United Kingdom,[citation needed] food porn is usually acknowledged as advertisements where food is presented in an ‘arousing’ manner, for example; with water dripping from it in order to imitate a person with sweat dripping from them.

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”.[1] The origin of the term was attributed to the Center for Science in the Public Interest[1] which began publishing a regular column called “Right Stuff vs. Food Porn” for its Nutrition Action Healthletter in January 1998.[4][5]
