Food and sex. They go hand in…um, hand, don’t they?

How many millions of dates start out in restaurants and end up in bedrooms? And it’s not just the patrons either—it could be the waiter who catches your eye. Or the cute busboy with a tantalizing lock of hair that falls over his eyes as he’s wiping your table. Maybe it’s the hairy arms of the cook as he bellows out “PICKUP

I enjoyed it. I do have to confess, however, to being further confused at what defines romance and erotica. Some of the stories in this anthology were deeply graphic in their eroticism, whereas others were what I would call romance with all sexual activity taking place offstage. So what's the distinction?

"Revealed," by David Pratt

I will quickly mention that David Pratt is the author of Bob the Book, which won a 2011 Lambda Literary Award and is an absolute joy to read. But my 365 project is short fiction, so here I'm going to discuss his phenomenal short piece "Revealed."

I expected a bit more erotic fun but it was a pretty good read. Although as I read some of the stories I found myself getting a little weirded out at how much food meant to some of these characters. I mean food is great and such, but for some of them it was like it was their whole entire life.
