erotic fruit

When I was taking a class in Romantic Poetry in college, the professor (a woman) asked the question: "If you read carefully, you'll find a lot of allegorical connotations in these poems. Erotic fruit is one of them. Can someone name an erotic fruit?"

I blurted out, "A BIG banana!"

That was not the correct answer, but I thought it was funny as hell. I was never known for keeping my mouth shut.

So... I'm taking a poll.

What do YOU think is an erotic fruit? (and any reply containing the name of Michael Jackson WILL be deleted.)

(UPDATE: What made me think of this topic is the fact that I BOUGHT some "erotic fruit" at the grocery store today. I am enjoying eating it. It might be nice to have someone to share it with, but right now, it's MINE!!! ALL MINE!!!)


Jacko might be a neurotic fruit or psychotic fruit, but erotic? (shudder)

Or have you ever split a papaya?

Mr. Lion got one. Go back and read the Romantic poets.

A pear can look like a woman's bottom viewed from the back.

I don't care what anyone says, I think a banana is erotic.

Are cucumbers fruits? what about zucchini?

A "kumquat"?

Gotta agree with Livey. I think a banana is very erotic. ;)

Erotic fruit? That's easy... warm apple pie.

Whaddaya mean a pie ain't fruit? Well it ain't a vegetable, THAT's for damned sure!

Sorry Acid, I've got to call you out on this one --

It can't possibly be an erotic fruit if you eat it alone. I don't care what fruit it actually is.

Eaten with the right person, any sweet, very juicy fruit probably qualifies. If you can take a bite and have her kiss the excess juice off your lips, that's an erotic fruit.

And no, that means "banana" doesn't qualify.

Andy, you beat me to it. Yes, strawberries. Anybody remember the eating scene in Tom Jones?

Posted by: Ernie G on August 6, 2005 07:12 AM

Strawberries ain't erotic unless they are used to flavor a deuche, well maybe with some whipped cream apllied liberally in the right place that has to be licked off to get to the strawberry--

oh yeah, in the song of Solomon there was talk of breasts like melons although that didn't seem irotic to me because I've never seen a melon with a pink nipple.

oranges...eaten in a hot tub.

Posted by: Kelly on August 6, 2005 08:58 AM

How about passion fruit? Seems obvious, but...

Posted by: Stephanie on August 6, 2005 09:26 AM

A durian.

Plum if you're a pedophile.

I think whatever 'fruit' you happen to be eating can be erotic if you do it right.

I think Livey probably qualifies as an erotic fruit.

Posted by: assrot on August 6, 2005 01:12 PM

Mmm... I knew a girl who tasted like strawberries...

Posted by: Yogimus on August 6, 2005 02:16 PM
