So if there are semen-based recipes, why can't people make food products out of lady juice, too?
That was the question posted by Janey Jay and her friend Cecilia Westbrook, an MD/PhD student at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
What started out as a joke turned into a project that involved using their vaginal secretions to make yogurt. Using a wooden spoon, they would collect their juices and combine them with a pre-made culture of actual yogurt and plain milk.
According to Motherboard, every vagina is home to hundreds of different types of bacteria and organisms. These organisms produce lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and others that keep the vagina healthy. But the dominant bacteria is called lactobacillus, which also happens to be what people sometimes use to culture milk, cheese, and—yep, you guessed it, yogurt.
The result: a sour and tangy batch that was almost tingly on the tongue. Westbrook compared it to Indian yogurt, and ate it with blueberries.
But before you start whipping up your own batch of vaginal yogurt, you should know that it’s not a very good idea. When you collect vaginal secretion, take note that you’re also collecting everything else with it—including the not-so-healthy-bacteria.
I guess we’re sticking to good old traditional yogurt then?
