Woman makes yoghurt with her vagina for a totally good reason

16 February 2015, 09:24

Nairobi - We’ve been telling you about a lot of weird stuff women have been doing with their vaginas recently. It started out quite tamely with the artist who made vagina necklaces moulded from the wearer’s own vulva

Then vagina cupcakes were all the rage.

Then an artist made abstract art by plopping paint filled eggs from her vag onto canvas. Another conceptual artist knitted a scarf from her ladybits (in my opinion that one took the cake.)

And now, an American PhD student (in science, not art, thank God) has made yoghurt from the flora from her vagina.

I concede, there is definitely a yuck factor to it, but for me, it’s mainly because since I’m straight, I’m not used to eating pussy. And also, I don’t like yoghurt.

According to Motherboard, who did a story and an interview with Cecelia Westbrook (by the way, I can highly recommend reading the full article here) it was half joke, half serious experiment.

Westbrook realised that almost nothing is known about the organisms living in our vaginas, and yet pharmaceutical companies sell us all sorts of probiotics that we can actually produce ourselves.

Motherboard also spoke to Larry Forney, a microbiologist at the University of Idaho. He reckons that vaginal probiotics can be of “questionable usefulness” since each woman’s lady parts has a different balance of bacteria and lactobacilli. And that if probiotics could be uniquely tailored to each woman’s own vaginal microbial flora, it would be far more effective than any product on the shelf.

Neither Westbrook or Forney recommends eating vag yoghurt, but if anything, I think it’s fair to ask the medical fraternity to do some research on the flora in our bodies.
