The transformation of a person into chocolate. Chocomorphism was in the Linx ads where an antiperspirant for men was promoted as being irresistible to women, “like chocolate”. A young man was seen spraying the stuff over his torso before suddenly metamorphosing into chocolate. Sure enough, when he walked down the street women eagerly lusted after him: licking, biting, pulling or biting chunks off his chocolate form. There’s the chocomorphic story of a man who found a bottle lying on a beach. After unscrewing the top a genie came out and offered him three wishes. He asked for ten million dollars, and in a puff of smoke there appeared a black suitcase containing ten million dollars. Then he asked for a Bugatti Veyron, and puff! the desired supercar manifested before his eyes. And then he wished he could be irresistible to women, and in another puff of smoke he turned into a huge box of Godiva pralines!

In Tess Stimson’s The Adultery Club, cookery-writer Mal Lyon made herself irresistible to husband Nicholas by becoming the tastes and textures of a delicious chocolate assortment. With chocolate painted on her nipples, cocoa powder dusted on her pubic hair, mint-flavoured white chocolate applied to her lips, and feeding liqueurs into his mouth, Mal assaulted her husband with so many delicious chocolate sensations he could never smell chocolate again without thinking of having sex with her.

In France, a six-pack – i.e. a well chiseled set of abdominal muscles in a male – is known as une tablette de chocolat, a bar of chocolate. Presumably because it’s good enough to eat.
