Although they weren't actually cooking in it, I don't think I've seen a more seductive movie scene as when Kim Bassinger was being fed by Mickey Rourke in the 80's flick "9 1/2 Weeks"! You know the part? Where she's half naked on the floor with a bandanna wrapped around her eyes so she can't see, while he spoons random concoctions from the innards of his refrigerator into her mouth! Whew...that was hot!
On that note, I do think that there is something seductive and sensual about a person cooking up a savory meal for their partner. And if you think about it, the culinary seduction can start long before the meal hour by enticing a partner with tempting descriptions of delicious foods throughout the day, in order to tantalize their senses. By the time they walk through the door in the evening, they'll be chomping at the bit to see what's simmering in the pot or sizzling on the stove and, chances are, things will be heatin' up in other areas as well!
