Honey, come into the kitchen, you gotta try this.

Unfortunately, the strawberry just came from the store.


The only thing worse than knowing there is an entire book of recipes that uses semen as an ingredient is finding out there isn't even one recipe on all of google that uses fe-men (female semen).

Aware of the nutritional benefits contained within vaginal secretions—femen—and offended by the lack of applications,Cecilia Westbrook, an MD/PhD student at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, set about to eat-a her own excreta. And if anyone knows about how to do dairy, it's gotta be someone in Wisconsin.

Her friend Janet Jay wrote of Westbrook's culinary adventure for Vice on Motherboard. Per her article:

"Every vagina is home to hundreds of different types of bacteria and organisms. These organisms—collectively known as the vaginal community—produce lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and other substances that keep the vagina healthy. The dominant bacteria is called lactobacillus, which also happens to be what people sometimes use to culture milk, cheese, and yogurt."

Now I wonder where our cheese-makers got their original strain of lactobacillus if not the vagina. They've probably always gotten it from the vagina, and just never said.

According to Jay, the "collection method" for Westbrook's sample was "done with a wooden spoon."

Ummm... splinters? I supposed sticking a straw up there like you are tapping a maple tree is out of the question.

[Westbrook] set up a positive control (made with actual yogurt as the starter culture) and a negative control (plain milk with nothing added), and combined her own home-made ingredient to the third batch of yogurt. Left overnight, the magic of biology created a respectably-sized bowl.
