Models Covered in Sweets Test The Boundaries of What’s Sexy and Hunger-Inducing

Attractive and well-lit models always make for a successful photo shoot. As does some yummy food, styled to perfection. But when combining the two… how far can this be taken before your photos are void of sexuality and no longer make the viewer hungry?

Photographer Keith Allen Phillips recently tested these boundaries, with Messy — a photo series that merges the inherent sexuality of an attractive model with some well-placed junk foods.

By combining the two — in some cases making the models unrecognizable — we’re left to wonder if this series is still sexy, hunger-inducing, or just plain gratuitous. Thoughts?

A Chocolate Bathroom Could Be Yours If You Can’t Spell

1

Why anyone would want a chocolate bathroom suite is beyond us. But, apparently there’s a demand for them… sort of.

Attempting to take advantage of millions of misspelled internet searches for “bathroom sweets” instead of “bathroom suites,” Choccywoccydoodah and Bathrooms.com have teamed up to bring us a complete chocolate bathroom set.

Each fixture is made from the finest Belgian chocolate, and available individually, or as a set. But, more than anything, it’s merely a clever way of Bathrooms.com to capitalize on a few million unfortunate spelling mistakes.

Now… Do we even need to get into why a chocolate toilet is wrong?
