Bogota - A Colombian poet and journalist has offered his testicles for sale to fund a trip to introduce Europeans to his work.
Raffael Medina Brochero on Wednesday told Radio Caracol he would sell them to the first person to agree to pay $197 000 so that he could travel to Europe.
His testicles could be transplanted into a sterile person or used to make soup, said the 52-year-old poet, who has had 11 books published.
He said the idea of selling his testes occurred to him after he ran out of money on a trip in South America in 2012 and had to pawn his wedding ring.
