food and sex




'a woman prefers her husband to be a donkey driver, at home every shabbat to satisfy her sexually, even though he only earns 1 kab of wheat, rather than a distant camel driver who has sex once in 30 days, even though he earns 9 kabim' Ketubot 61a

women prefer regular sex to a higher standard of living... those, silly impractical women. (click on image to enlarge)



I have incorporated food associated with sex and fertility, including some from the traditional 7 species (I am a traditionalist at heart) - figs, pomegranates, grapes and of course wheat in the lacework, all of which is dripping with honey...

Mouthwateringly good.

Although I do think the misogyny here is more interesting and less black and white than previous pieces.

Hi Jacqueline. Nathan Abrams gave me a link to your slideshow. It's really interesting stuff and I think your paper cuts are just stunning. It reminded me of work like Audrey Walker's "Life is Just Like a Bowl of Cherries" from the Subversive Stitch exhibition some years ago. All the best, Jenni Steele (Bangor Uni, PhD)
