People Will Put Just About Anything In Their Mouths

Djimoun Hounsou | ph. Herb Ritts

“Food, like eroticism, starts with the eyes, but there are people who will put just about anything in their mouths. In Samoa, live octopus is a delicacy. Natives of those islands hold the beast to their face, let the tentacles wrap around their head in an involuntary embrace, then bite the beak and, mouth-to-mouth in a long kiss of death, suck out its insides. Poor creature.”

— excerpt from Isabel Allende’s book: “Aphrodite: A Memoir Of The Senses”
