"I promise you will go to a more intense place with your date or friend if you try something new. You don't bond with a safe order. I've eaten fermented shark. I've eaten cobra heart. (It was beating when I put it in my mouth. How to describe the taste? Think very athletic oyster.) I don't want to experience these foods again, but I'm glad I tried them. What's the worst-case scenario? You spend some extra time in the bathroom."
-Anthony Bourdain on the sexiest thing you can do on a date. [Cosmo]
