Q: Dear Dr. Skye: I’m hosting a bachelorette party for my sister and want to serve food appropriate to the risqué theme of the party. What do you suggest? — Izzie P., Bethesda, MD
A: You have a wealth of options. You could choose food based on their alleged aphrodisiac qualities, such as chocolate, oysters and avocado. Just Google “Aphrodisiacs” and you’ll get a long list. You could serve drinks with risqué names, such as “Sex on the Beach” and “Fuzzy Nipple”. There are a number of phallic-shaped foods, such as hotdogs, sausages, and meatballs , that could be arranged artfully. And risqué retailers like Spencer Gifts sell pasta in shape of male organs. Then, for dessert, most adult stores offer sexy cake pans and candy molds for adventuresome cooks, and many local bakeries sell adult-themed sweets. For example, in Portland, OR, Voodoo Doughnut does a brisk business in pastries in the shape of erotic body parts. Of course, you could also hire a male stripper who won’t mind being decorated with edible body paint!
