Food, Sex and Morality

A weighty, unnecessarily long and academic paper on sex, food and morality from Stanford University - however if you persevere and read between the lines there is some terrific insights around how our culture has evolved the contemporary discourse around food to include a moral / self-righteous dimension.  Great context for some of the emerging themes already identified here around the return to comfort / risk eating, and the cultural meanings of obesity / "organic" / sustainability / etc.  (It's always great when some poor PhD student does all the work for us!)
