It's good to let things breathe in your imagination because often your initial response to it is not the best thought-through response. I savour little glimpses of life. Mine and those of people who turn me sideways and around. Friend or stranger. Even a child. (the world looks different from down there) Sometimes an author, photographer, artist. I let things saturate and incubate here. Hopefully, deeper meanings can percolate up and flower.

Oh, You Sexy Thing!

Your texture is enough to turn me on.
So, so... seductive.
Ooo... so languid and vulnerable.
That slippery slurpy sensation when I eat you...
oOo Simply divine!

... and champagne would be the perfect marriage.

you sexy thing! Have you been eating oysters or are you just happy to see me? ;P

"I placed the shell on the edge of her lips and after a good deal of laughing,
she sucked in the oyster, which she held between her lips.
I instantly recovered it by placing my lips on hers."
Casanova in Volume Six

She is mine own,
And I as rich in having such a jewel
As twenty seas, if all their sand were pearl,
The water nectar, and the rocks pure gold.
'The Two Gentlemen of Verona' William Shakespeare

Casanova, the 18th-century hot and horny master of seduction who breakfasted on 50 oysters, has been vindicated by a study that proves they really are aphrodisiacs. American and Italian researchers have found that oysters and other shellfish are rich in rare amino acids that trigger increased levels of sex hormones.

"If the male is having difficulties, they have to eat a lot of mussels or oysters.
To be most effective the oysters have to be eaten raw."

There are, of course, scientists who wonder if these shellfish have enough of the chemicals to trigger libido. Oh, shush! Raw oysters are such a heady appetizer. The experience can be so exquisitely perverse. Now, just imagine this:

"As I draw my cocktail fork across it,
the delicate creature contracts almost imperceptibly.
Then I stab the quivering mouthful and slide it onto my tongue.
The flavor is salty, a little metallic and surprisingly sweet.
There's a subtle nuttiness in the chewy bit that surrounds the foot."

"You're putting the mollusk into your mouth while it's still alive.
The wonderfully slick texture, delicate briny flavor and beachfront aroma
make it easy to understand how oysters came to be associated with
the tenderest portion of the female anatomy and thus considered an aphrodisiac."

So, never mind the frigid, unimaginative skeptics. The brain is still our most powerful sex organ.

50 oysters back then probably is safe because the sea is not filled with toxic heavy metals. But now, if slurp 50 oysters, terus mati because of lau sai. LOL! Anyway, I love fresh oysters but the limitation is the pocket only.

BTW, you asked about the comment in 'Are you afraid of dying?' I got part two now. Feel free to share your thoughts.

toxic oceans -- yup, hence the (very valid) sinister association with Sex and Death in one of those links in this entry.

All said, Life's short. Enjoy and make hay while you may! *slurp*

*squish* the lemons and *jiggle* the Tabasco... mmm :P

btw... whoever heard of death by 'lau sai'? If such a cause of death is common, I'll bet the association with slimming teas is far, far higher!!

Like, they don't call it the 'toilet diet' for nothing.
