Food Porn

Is porn the use of something that in its original form is healthy and normal? We were made male and female for a reason. It has become a sport with many people not the expression of love between husband and wife that was the original purpose (oh, and also for continuing the production of people). Was sex just discovered or something? You'd think so with the amount of attention it gets. Kind of like food, one would think it had also just been discovered. I have read that people get addicted to porn.

Here is the definition of addiction:

the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.
 
People get addicted to caffeine. They get addicted to sugar. People describe themselves as "chocoholics". Let's not forget cigarettes. Is there not an obscene amount of food at Christmas and Thanksgiving as well as reunions and super bowl parties? Food porn? Food is everywhere. Even if we miss a meal for some reason, it will only be about 4 hours until the next one but don't we get all nervous and upset if we don't get to eat when we think we should be eating? Have you ever had that anxious feeling when pizza was ordered to be delivered and you get more and more upset as time passes and it hasn't arrived? We look at food and lust over it. It's easy to get aroused looking through some of these cooking magazines and the way they make the food look so wonderful. The original purpose of food and eating was so we could go on living and now we've made it a sport. Ever watched an eating contest?

We need to get a grip don't you think?
