The Chocolate Theory

The Origin of the Chocolate Theory:

Ok chocolates are known to be sinful indulgence and an aphrodisiac. I have been a loyal & indulgent fan of chocolates and enjoy every moment spent from opening the wrapper to relishing the last bit of it with complete surrender. And so while in a silent moment of centered & focussed indulgence, it struck me one day - the 'Chocolate theory', as if an apple on Newton's head. How uncanny but similar is the nature of Chocolate to the nature of the human Feminine?

The Theory states that: "Chocolate & the human Feminine have a resemblance in its existential definition. Chocolate's nature may, based on prominent characteristics be extrapolated to the nature of the human feminine. The feminine nature prominently reflects certain scientifically proven pleasures & consequences of the consumption of Chocolate which we will see in the flow of this theoretical blogumentary about the Chocolate theory. "

Here is an interesting commentary on the pleasure of devouring a bar of chocolate:
There is something almost sinful in the pleasure you get as you unwrap a piece of chocolate and place it in you mouth. It is shinny almost satin appearance, the smooth feel of it melting on your tongue, while the taste spreads and tickles your taste buds. The aroma drifting up to fill your senses with the special pleasures only rich, sweet chocolate can give you.

The sensation of melting healthy chocolate speeds up your heart beat and increases your brain activity. The chemicals in the chocolate react with the chemicals in your body. All this combines to give you feelings of pleasure and well being.

It is like wrapping your brain in silk. Giving you relief from the stress and pains of everyday life. Chocolate does contain chemicals that act similar to pain killers and antidepressants. So how can you be hurting or down when you have that wonderful taste and feel of chocolate melting in your mouth. *[1]

Most of us would concur to this depiction and relishing of the experience consuming chocolate. Now let me give you a simple representation of the same sequence one slight change:
There is something almost sinful in the pleasure you get as you unravel the mystery that is a female and experience that first kiss. A smooth and almost satin appearance, the supple feel of her skin when you touch it, a tingle jerks your senses and fills you and the touch of lips that tickles your taste buds to feel how she tastes. Her fragrence drifting up to fill your senses with the special pleasures only a sexy, well-endowed & lovely lady can give you.

The sensation while touching her warm body speeds up your heart beat and increases your brain activity. The chemicals in both your bodies driving you to a world lost in a state of suspension of boundaries and life. All this combines to give you feelings of pleasure and well being.

It is like wrapping your brain in silk. Giving you relief from the stress and pains of everyday life. Love is an emtion that generates chemicals that act similar to pain killers and antidepressants. So how can you be hurting or down when you have that wonderful feel of femenine love melting in your heart.* [2]


Now, What are these 'pleasures & consequences'?

Important Positive effect on health - Maintains the circulatory system:
  • " Chocolate is regularly eaten for pleasure, however the potential beneficial health effects of eating chocolate. Cocoa or dark chocolate benefits the human circulatory system. Other beneficial effects suggested include anticancer, brain stimulator, cough preventor and antidiarrhoeal effects." **
  • The caring Feminine nature in its different forms Mother, wife, girl-friend & sister also sustains the daily cycle of activities of a man from washing clothes, cooking food, etc. - the daily circulatory system of a man, which manages to run by itself.
Another Important Positive effect - Pure Pleasure:
  • " Chocolate is regularly eaten for pleasure. A sinful indulgence." Cocoa in ancient aztec language meant 'food for Gods'
  • The human feminine similarly an abode of pleasure. Pure pleasure in ways, I would prefer to leave to your imagination than to my limited scope of thought.

Negative Effect on Health - Obesity:
  • "The major concern that nutritionists have is that even though eating dark chocolate may favorably affect certain biomarkers of cardiovascular disease, the amount needed to have this effect would provide a relatively large quantity of calories, which, if unused, would promote weight gainObesity is a significant risk factor for many diseases, including cardiovascular disease. As a consequence, consuming large quantities of dark chocolate in an attempt to protect against cardiovascular disease has been described as 'cutting off one's nose to spite one's face." **
  • The feminine nature has this natural tendency of showering so much love that you fill up with it and get sick. The unreasoned jealousy, the curious questioning, disregard for all that you feel is worth something, etc :P Directly reflects the state of obesity in which the love of chocolate or food consumption increases the chances of you falling sick & naturally being sick of it.
Another important consequential Effect of Consumption:
  • "Romantic lore commonly identifies chocolate as an aphrodisiac. The reputed aphrodisiac qualities of chocolate are most often associated with the simple sensual pleasure of its consumption. Additionally, chocolate's sweet and fatty nature may stimulate the hypothalamus, inducing pleasureable sensations as well as affecting the levels of serotonin. While serotonin has a pleasurable effect, in high concentrations it can be converted to melatonin which in large amounts reduces sexual drive. :O " **
  • The feminine although once you are lost in its lure pleasures you at the initial phase of consumption. But then once it goes beyond that phase then your head gets eaten to a level where you do not have time to have a thought about sexual drive. You have to fit into their moods, temper & tantrums which leaves your sex drive to dry.
Conclusion:

As stated above, I believe I have captured atleast the visible but uncanny semblance of the natures of both Chocolate and the human Feminine. Both have the powerful ability to sensually arouse you as a man and drive you misdirected in their fragrance. Surrender is necessary to truly enjoy them and the more the raw the more the taste. 

How do I use this theory to my benefit?

As I briefed in the depiction of the human feminine in worded prose in [2], you would have related to the pure sensual pleasure that the human feminine transcends onto the male. When I see a woman - well-endowed, pleasant appearing, sharp featured & well-mannered; I can't help but run the sequence [1] and extrapolate the same replacing the Chocolate with that woman.Wrecked nerves & gushing blood to the heart which races, sending up the heat on all dormant senses. And then you are lost as though the world has just stopped around you.

I enjoy this very experience and feel that the human feminine is really chocolate - too much of it can harm you. But then the human feminine like chocolate is available in so many packages, varieties and flavors. So what I like to do is simply to go into this chocolate factory of life and taste all the possible varieties and flavors. I would really not want to regret that I had missed to taste atleast the best of the lot :)
