Tiramisu: The kinky Italian dessert that you should know about

Tiramisu is an Italian dessert which has an erotic history. It literally means ‘pick me up’ or ‘lift me up’. This dessert has its origins from the brothel houses of the Italian town of Treviso.

Back then, the people in this town had their social stature measured by how often a man went to pleasure houses. Those who did not were “losers” or outcasts. And the more tiramisu they had, the better the prostitution business was! Let’s see how and why.

This erotic cake is made of ladyfinger biscuits, mascarpone, coffee liquor, eggs, cocoa powder and sugar. The ladyfingers (also known a savoiardi) are dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of eggs, sugar, and mascarpone cheese and flavored with cocoa.

The clients would have the dessert and go into bedrooms right away! Satisfied merchants of the town would even bring exotic coffee beans and mascarpone for the ladies of the pleasure houses next time. This orgasmic dessert apparently makes people feel sexy, which preps them for more fun, and hence the popularity of the cake.

After a while, brothels were banned in Italy. But a couple who had visited one of these, thought that the recipe of this amazing dessert shouldn’t be forgotten. The wife was pregnant at the time. After giving birth to the baby, to recover from labor fatigue, she restored the recipe and had it. Thanks to her, we still have at par, the best Italian dessert in existence.
