Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Forget Spanish fly or powdered rhino horn; if you want to get your lover in the mood, look no farther than your local supermarket. Strawberries, chocolate, asparagus--even coffee--have long been considered stimulants for the romantic appetite. For centuries, folk wisdom held that foods either rare or resembling a sexual organ had tremendous power over the libido. Modern science has since debunked that theory, but there's no denying that a meal lovingly prepared and properly presented with just the right ambience can precipitate the most passionate encounters. In Intercourses: An Aphrodisiac Cookbook, Martha Hopkins and Randall Lockridge appeal to all the senses as they offer up 85 heart-melting, temperature-raising dishes, along with an array of sensuous photographs that will make you look at food in a whole new light.

The book is divided into 17 sections, each one devoted to a particular food with aphrodisiac qualities, from chocolate and chilies to black beans and oysters. Following these are recipes for massage oils, seasonal dishes, and meals to appeal to every astrological sign and every stage of a relationship, from first date to golden anniversary. There's even a list of resources on subjects ranging from further reading on aphrodisiacs to locating aromatherapy candles. Just reading Intercourses is a sensual experience--imagine what eating from it will be!

This is one of my favorite cookbooks, both for the recipes and the gorgeous photos. The black bean, chicken and asparagus enchiladas and the french toast are perfect do-ahead ahead dishes for when you want to spend time with your sweetie instead of in the kitchen; I've made both ahead of time and popped them in the oven at the last minute, with great success (and yes, the foods do work...at least in my experience!). The photos are very sexy, but very tasteful. I especially liked the stories from couples who tested the recipes. This would make a great bridal shower gift.

Format: Hardcover
From the deliciously entertaining text to the tantalizing recipes, you will be seduced into reading this cookbook. There are 85 couple-tested recipes, humorous notes to make you smile and even suggestions for music selections with dinner.

Chocolate, asparagus, chiles, coffee, basil, grapes, strawberries, honey, artichokes, black beans, oysters, rosemary, edible flowers, pine nuts, avocados and figs are all displayed on the body in a tasteful way. Yes, the models are only wearing food!

The comments by couples who tested the recipes are perhaps the most personal part of the book. The words melt into the pages so easily and effortlessly. The sumptuous collection of recipes are erotic, inspirational and enticing. The recipes may encourage a playful, erotic, sensual or romantic response.

The "chocolate fig bundles" recipe looked tempting, so I set out to make them. The satiny sheets of phyllo pastry smothered in butter told me one thing, these were going to be heavenly. I filled figs with the almond/chocolate mixture and wrapped them up snuggly in the pastry. They only took 13 minutes to bake.

To serve these heady treats, I piped the whip cream into five little hearts all around the two dinner plates. I used sliced almonds mixed with more grated chocolate, confectioners' sugar and colored sugar to sprinkle over the whipped cream. The pastries were set in the middle of the hearts and served while still warm. I also drizzled these pastries with a little honey. My husband didn't leave a crumb!

I bought the book for my man and WOW! I practically drooled all over the book as he told me what the recipes were...... Strawberry White Chocolate Truffles..? Divine foods were in this book. They had recipes for everthing from Asparagus, Avocado, and Pine Nuts. Fruits, Veggies....... anything you can think of. The pictures were subtly erotic..... nudes with a torso of Oysters, hands in Honey, and even a pair of legs holding a Champagne bottle. There are even little excerpts from others who have used the book. And this is NOT only for purposes of making love. The recipes can be used for dinner parties with family, friends, or even a dish for the office party. This book is good not only to spice up your "love" life, but can add zing to your social life, because your friends will be dying to know where you got the recipe! Just think of the conversations this would start! So buy the book, go grocery shopping, and pamper yourself with good eating, with or without significant other.

I bought my copy of this book last year and found it to be so delightful that I have been giving it as gifts for weddings, housewarmings, birthdays, etc. The best thing about this cookbook is that miraculously it is beautiful, sensual and actually has fabulous recipes. I have so many beautiful cookbooks that do not contain a dozen good recipes. This book is the exception. Not only is is worthy as a conversation piece or coffee table book it is filled with charming and delicious recipes and ideas. As to it's aphrodisiac qualities, what could be a better libido boost than beautiful, delectible palate pleasers as a prelude to passion?

I bought this book for my wife as part of a birthday present. The other part was Barry White's Greatest Hits. We put on the CD, opened the cookbook and made the spicy shrimp dish. We fed each other, the spices raised our body temperatures, and we slipped to the flooor.......
Quite a book. Results may vary.
Order yours now.

I bought a copy of this as a gift from one of my bridesmaids, who is also getting married this summer. I went to the bookstore for a different aphrodisiac cookbook, but I spotted the cover of this one, and after flipping through it, was compelled to buy it. I'm going to get a copy of this for me and my new hubby. We both love to cook for each other, and just talking about the foods in the book were enough to excite us. It's a beautiful visual feast. The photography is gorgeous and is a lovely compliment to the recipes and sweet stories from people who have used them. There are foods you would expect, like chocolate, honey, strawberries and oysters, and lots of things you might never think of, like artichokes, asparagus, black beans, and pine nuts. There are even massage oil recipes, and other interesting extras. We've tried a few of the simpler ones, like the Mexican hot Chocolate, and they were great. I'm really looking forward to trying some of the more complicated items (three words: black russian cake). It was definately worth what we spent as a gift, and it's definately worth buying a second time. I highly recommend it.
