Cecilia Westbrook, a feminist and medical student from the University of Wisconsin, has produced the worlds very first vagina yogurt which uses secretions from a woman’s vagina as part of its recipe.
In her own words:
“In a way, it’s so obvious. Like, of course you can make yogurt out of your natural flora. But who would think to do it? And of course the feminist in me wants to say something about how there’s a beauty in connecting your body to your food and exploring the power that your vagina has. Part of that is kind of a mystical hippie thing, but part of it is also just getting comfortable with your own body, especially in a culture that is so uncomfortable with women’s bodies.”
She tried mixing in her stuff with yogurt as a starter culture, and also plain milk. Her first trial tasted like Indian yogurt, and she enjoyed it with blueberries. Unfortunately this is not, it turns out, O.K. to eat.
Some of it could be bad for you, because the yogurt ingredients stuff depends on the woman, and the F.D.A. is against it. So you’ll have to wait on throwing that just vagina desserts V-day bash. But where there’s a will there’s a way, and this woman proves that we’re still a model society where great minds innovate. Hopefully someone comes through with that refreshing sounding period blood salad dressing.
