Thinking S-L-O-W-L-Y

Is it just me, or is there something a little odd about the similarity between the “slow-sex movement,”described here, and the slow-food movement?   (The latter is now organized into”Slow Food,” a non-profit that seeks “to counteract fast food and fast life, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.”)  

Is it just the names that sound the same, or is there something related about savoring women’s bodies and savoring food?   Or women learning to savor their own pleasure, and to take pleasure in food, instead of abusing themselves with it?  

I’ll have to think slowly about this one.
