i don't mean theoretically, best sex you've ever had vs best meal you've ever had

sex but its real close

felt really awesome & invincible for like a week after the best sex but i indulged so much in best meal i had a stomach ache afterwards

Lot of similarities -- a marathon compared to the usual, kinda dazed and poleaxed afterward, a little sore (distended belly vs. raw dick), feeling "damn, I'm not doing that again for a few days."

This is a really hard choice.

there's a creepy dissonance here, though, since the best meals i've ever had have been in the presence of family and/or friends, and the best sex has not at least as far as i know and hope, and pray

comparing the two is like yakkles and barfanges

best sex - easy - there were/are far more intricacies and variables involved - vs best meal - the only variable really required is having the money or going w/someone who has the money to pay for it.

my best meals have invariably ended up with me overindulging and having a food hangover for days and days afterwards.

no way! good meals require a lot of stuff--good company, good setting, etc. thomas keller can cook a delicious meal but he cant make it the best ever unless thats where yr head is at.

This isn't even a question.

I'm the least food-based human I've ever met. I mean, I like good food a lot, but when I put it up next to sex, it's not even close.

Best meal, easily. Food is way more consistent.

drawl the whine (underrated aerosmith albums I have loved), Friday, 15 October 2010 15:13 (eight years ago) Permalink

For the orig. thread question, specifically the best I've had -- probably sex, but it's close.

Changing the question up a little and thinking "from this point forward" -- I'd say best meal. To achieve at 47 what I managed in my 20s sexually, I'd have to go into some rigorous training. But I could meet or beat the best meal I've ever had tomorrow, and keep finding new highs until I'm 80, without having to get in shape for it. (Heart attack worries would apply to both sex and food, I guess.)

Unfrozen Caveman Board-Lawyer (WmC), Friday, 15 October 2010 15:21 (eight years ago) Permalink

thread really got me thinking about what my best of each was, and the memories of the food are far, far more vivid.

gr80 antebellum (Whiney G. Weingarten), Friday, 15 October 2010 15:23 (eight years ago) Permalink

it's really not close, for me - the best food I love, a lot, I mean I talk about food so much people comment on it, but with real intimacy, being that close to another human being, being able to feel as vulnerable and alive and unmasked as you do when you really get to that point

well I mean I don't like to over-tmi tmi but I think truly great sex is as close to the concept of the divine as I can really understand, that communion with a greater self into which one's petty narcissistic self collapses: that's true-life-peak stuff

I can go back and have the best meal I've ever had whenever I want, and have done so several times.

I have been trying to have the best sex I ever had for years and have not recreated it yet.

Best sex.

I have more than one, actually.

Two can't be recreated because the restaurants don't exist anymore (RIP Maison Robert and Aujourd'hui) but I will ride eternally for:

the fusion dim sum at Ginger Park in Back Bay Boston
the lobster rolls at this hole-in-the-wall in Maine that I'm blanking on the name of, but is on the outskirts of Kennebunkport
the 10-course prix fixe menu at Graham Elliot in Chicago
ribs in Tennessee; it doesn't really matter where

put something in my digestive system and my only thought is how quickly it can be gotten out tbh

difficult listening hour, Sunday, 1 July 2018 16:26 (eleven months ago) Permalink

speaking of, but still slightly off-topic, it would be neat to route a loop of string through the mouth, down the esophagus, through the digestive system, and out the ass, then all the way back again - like a pulley system. then, finally, it would be possible to "eat food" by attaching it to the string, pulling it into the digestive system, then pulling it out whenever you want, either out the back end or through the mouth. could be sexy too

Distressing discovery: what would have been a really great self-indulgent meal just a couple of years ago now tends to just leave me bloated and disgusted. It's probably a function of age.

That is terrible news. Anytime something you love isn't fun anymore, yes, probably age, but maybe the silver lining is there's something else out there that you'll be able to enjoy now you're seasoned enough.
