Definitioncannibalism in which sexual pleasure is derived from the ingestion of human flesh, especially from eating the genital parts of a person of the opposite sex. Varieties of anthropophagy are autophagy, necrophagy and parthenophagy. Jack the Ripper was suspected of anthropophagy because he often carried away the female organs of his victims.
Quote: Dr. Hannibal (the Cannibal) Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) calling FBI agent Clarice Starling (Jodie Foster) while watching Dr. Frederick Chilton (Anthony Heald), the prison warden, come off the boat in The Silence of the Lambs (1991): ' I do wish we could chat longer but I'm having an old friend for dinner.'
