If you go all in for the adage "you are what you eat," would you also "eat what you are"?
Cecilia Westbrook, an MD/PhD student, put that to the test by making homemade yogurt using her own vaginal bacteria.
The key is lactobacillus, a bacteria commonly found in yogurt and a healthy vagina. Sounds like a new angle for Jamie Lee Curtis and her yogurt obsession.
Westbrook reportedly described the finished product as having a sour taste like "Indian yogurt" that went well with blueberries.
Vagina yogurt: strong enough for a man, but made from women.
Vaginal bacteria is a great way to make truly homemade yogurt, but using cow or goat milk doesn't click with yogurt from within a woman. To make a truly homemade yogurt, you could use breast milk if you want to make a yogurt from what women produce.
In a country where raw milk makes the mainstream world squeamish, you'll never see vagina yogurt in the stores, even without breast milk.
Still, imagine if vagina yogurt with breast milk was available in a grocery store and advertised on TV.
- It's a play on those classic mother-daughter ads where the daughter "isn't so fresh" and the mother could tell her how she needs to get clean enough to produce her own truly homemade yogurt.
- You could have a hippie-styled older woman who points out the natural goodness of vagina yogurt and breast milk. No artificial colors, flavors — nothing that a woman can't naturally produce herself.
- A young pregnant woman who only wants what is best for her baby. She plans to breastfeed her child, but for those times where she can't provide the breast milk, vagina yogurt with breast milk is the next best thing to being there.
- A sensitive man who loves his woman and wants to understand her better can feel closer with a serving of vagina yogurt with breast milk.
We've written about yogurt marketed to men. Yogurt has been traditionally marketed to women; can't get more in touch with women than to have a yogurt made from women.
Vagina yogurt with breast milk is organic, locally grown, locally sourced, and a truly natural food. Even if that sounds too appetizing, you've eaten worse and a lot less healthy.
