You are what you eat. I’m not sure who came up with this expression, but I get why it exists. The more you eat the same thing over and over, it becomes an addiction. Maybe not on the same level as a drug. So calling it an addiction is a bit extreme. So let’s use the word dependance. I have a dependance on a particular food that people find peculiar. By people, I mean those close to me (and now you, the reader). Aside from that, not many people know about my desire to eat lingerie.
Before you submit me to some reality TV show where people have bizarre obsessions, hear me out. I’m not sitting at home eating cotton and other clothing materials. I’m talking about edible lingerie. We live in the 21st century, so why not have edible clothes of all sorts. I’m especially a fan of edible panties – they’re my both my favorite adult novelty toy and my favorite food. Some people like sushi. I like edible panties. And I don’t think that’s weird at all.
A few months ago, my boyfriend suprised me with a pair. They were Strawberry in flavor, which is my favorite fruit. I wore them from him and when he went downtown, he was supposed to chew his way through. Like the good boyfriend he is, he chewed right through, but didn’t finish the whole thing. When we were done fooling around, he left the semi-eaten, strawberry flavored panties on my dresser. We went to sleep around midnight. Around 2, I woke up with a craving and went to the kitchen.
It was dark in my house. So dark that I tripped over the sex toys we forgot to put away. I found the lights and illuminated the hallway. It’s very disappointing to be so hungry and to have nothing in the fridge. Aside from condiments and soda, my fridge was bare. I hadn’t been to the grocery store in quite some time. Forgive me for being a busy working woman with a career. It’s hard to balance work, a relationship, and keeping up a house. Most of the time, I either get takeout or stop at some fast food place. It’s 2am – most fast food places that are open 24 hours a day are too far away. I headed back to my room. Hoping my boyfriend was awake, I was going to make him take me to gas station for some chocolate. To my dismay, he was still asleep. It was then that I decided to finish the edible panties that he started. And boy am I glad I did.
They were the most delicious things I’ve ever had. I liken it to the perfect fruit roll-up. The strawberry flavor was fierce and the sugar rush that came with it had me buzzing awake for a few hours. When people find something they love in life, they often know immediately that whatever it is they love (in my case, editable panties) is going to be a big part of their life for some time to come. It’s been 5 years since that first night in my bedroom, eating strawberry lingerie for the first time in the dark. Now I own my own clothing company – the first clothing company in my city to specialize in edible fashion.
