Sex and cooking

"I see cooking for someone as maybe the most selfless thing—short of oral sex—you can do for somebody," says Anthony Bourdain of the book Kitchen Confidential fame. See interview. He says, "Mitterrand, the French president, had two days to live, and the last thing he wanted to eat was the traditional ortolan experience. They drown a little bird, an overfed bird, and you put a hood over your head, and pop this sizzling hot bird in your mouth and kind of crunch into it, and the hot boiling Armagnac and guts go rushing down your throat. It’s supposed to be fantastic—and, I believe, marginally illegal." Holy cow.

Why selfless? Oral sex, I mean. I personally think oral sex is quite an egotistical activity, as much in the donor's interest as the recipient's. Antoine's mileage may vary. I hope this doesn't seem like sexual socialism, hair-splitting or pointless quibbling.
