Are you stoned, or this some kind of weird SEO spam? I get your point about sex being used in advertising to sell cars, toothpaste, etc, but you are seriously incoherent in alluding to "food porn". The "porn" element of that term merely refers to the lavish production values of some food oriented media productions - magazines, books, videos etc, which mirror the techniques used to produce actual pornography - viz: glossy paper, brightly lit, colourful high-res photography, breathless accompanying prose, etc. If you think a Marks and Sparks ad for a chicken, pancetta and mushroom pasta bake is (truly) "sexy" then you need some CBT badly.
Is this "sexy"? Freud might say so, I guess.
Getting back to the topic, there is a local hipster curry house that has a lamp of a sexy black lady in a basque with a bulb inside that must be 1950s. I think the word is 'kitsch". It's kind of like a cigar-store Indian in terms of cultural offensiveness. or those American things I believe are called "lawn jockeys". I would never buy a naked woman lamp whose ass lights up.
