*Brace yourself. This is going to be weird and gross and graphic…and, well, you get the point I hope.
A self-described asexual man, 22-years-old, of Japanese descent, has decided that he no longer needs his male genitalia; and moreover, has offered to serve it…on a platter…as a meal…for the right price.
Oh wait! He has been taken up on his offer, by not one, not two…oh hell, FIVE diners who have paid $250 apiece for the delicacy.
Whew, excuse me, I blacked out for a moment.
Mao Sugiyama, actually put on his chef’s hat to cook, season and serve his own genitalia to five diners at a fine restaurant in Tokyo last month, Calorie Lab reported.
In most cases, “asexual” is a word used to describe a person who is non-sexual. Sugiyama, however, embraces it as a way to show that he does not affiliate with either gender.
Sugiyama sparked a firestorm of interest on April 8 with this tweet:
“[Please retweet] I am offering my male genitals (full penis, testes, scrotum) as a meal for 100,000 yen …Will prepare and cook as the buyer requests, at his chosen location.”
As it turns out, Sugiyama made the decision to “sacrifice himself” just days after his 22nd birthday, undergoing elective genitalia surgery; which he then divvied up (penis shaft, testicles, and scrotal skin) between five people, and garnished it with button mushrooms and Italian parsley.
On April 13, five of six diners who signed up for the $250-a-plate feast, sat down to dinner. The sixth person was a no-show.
The next day, an organizer posted a blog with pictures (that has since been deleted, but if you’re brave, scroll down to see). Of course dozens of people were curious, not unlike you if you’re still reading, and attended the event just to catch a glimpse of the rare treat.
They were served crocodile-based dishes while Sugiyama cooked up the exclusive meal.
The story went viral in Japan. Some showed even more interest, while others complained. But Calorie Lab called Japanese authorities, who deemed the banquet legal because there is no law against cannibalism in the country.
IF YOU’VE READ THIS FAR, YOU PROBABLY WANT TO SEE THE REAL DEAL. SCROLL DOWN…. YOU’VE BEEN WARNED…
The plated meal looks almost palatable, just sayin’…
Now this next photo was even hard for my overly curious eyes to take. It shows the genitalia BEFORE it was prepped. It’s nasty. You’ll have to go to Huffington Post to see it.
But wait, BEFORE YOU GO – here are some questions I just know that I can’t be the only one wondering about…if you’re being truthful, you know they have crossed your mind!
1) What was the aroma in the PLACE as this meal was being cooked? 2) What must the breath of the persons who ate this meal have smelled like afterwards…and was there a gum or toothpaste strong enough to mask it?
And finally, and this is more a comment than a question: A Japanese man was packin’ enough to actually feed FIVE PEOPLE!!!? (Mouth agape…No pun intended!)
OK, as you were…Huffington Post
