Apparently, if you want to eat a piece of ham off Padma Lakshmi's body, the going rate is $1,000.

That number was established Monday night in Washington, D.C., at the Capital Food Fight's event benefiting the charity DC Central Kitchen, where she allowed a stranger who'd donated said amount to nibble a piece of Ibérico ham off her collarbone.

Unfortunately for Padma admirers, we doubt she'll be making a habit of such shenanigans. It is for charity, though. What say you, Padma?

Washington City Paper's Jessica Sidman shot some salacious footage of the incident -- except it's upside-down. If you don't feel like craning your neck, Eater DC has a flipped-up version.
