THE SUPRASTERNAL NOTCH TEST
by The Chocolate Dictionary
Similar to the Ensellure Test, this is the test in which a lover is judged by whether one would enjoy eating chocolates, or licking melted chocolate, from their suprasternal notch – the small hollow at the base of the throat. Considered an erogenous zone by some, the suprasternal notch features in the novel and film The English Patient, where it is a point of amorous fascination for Almásy. The way he lovingly touches Katherine there, the way he wants to name it and claim it, and the fact that he buys her a silver pendant to draw attention to it, all point to the conclusion that, emphatically, she would have passed.
