Yet, food porn, much like traditional forms of pornography, has a wavering definition. What is food porn exactly? What is the relationship to food and sex? Is there one and what does it matter? Hear the answers from a gathering of experienced food writers, critics, and tv personalities in FOOD + PORN.
