Wallpaper* Magazine's July Sex Issue
Wallpaper* just released their July sex issue, featuring food and drink as the favored aphrodisiac throughout the magazine. Their recommended indulgences include a bedside spread of room service at New York's newest hotels including The Standard, Plaza, Ace, and Thompson LES, and should one overindulge, the Semi-Automatic, a luxury vending machine at the Mondrian Miami that sells Spanx so guests can maintain their silhouette for the night.
For those traveling overseas, Boulangerie Legay Choc, the first gay bakery in Paris is also featured. For a night in, the magazine suggests stocking one's kitchen with seductive sundries like figs, caviar, asparagus, pine nuts, licorice, and truffles — for how they stimulate the senses. And for those who like to follow directions, recipes are provided for the AphrodisIX, a fig and ginger cocktail made from Belvedere IX, as well as Salvador Dali's Timbale Elysee Laserre, a "cup-sized" confection the surrealist artist contributed to the long out-of-print 1977 Museum of Modern Art's Artists' Cookbook (available second-hand at Amazon).
