TOKYO: Five lucky foodies in Tokyo did. 23-year old Mao Sugiyama, a self-described “asexual,” underwent elective genital-removal surgery and prepared the genitals for a meal. The severed penis, testicles, and scrotal skin were marinated in red wine and garnished with button mushrooms and Italian parsley.
Sugiyama tweeted an invitation to guests to attend a banquet, where he cooked and served his culinary treat:
A rough translation of the tweet via CBC read: I am offering my male genitals (full penis, testes, scrotum) as a meal for 100,000 yen [$1,250]. I’m Japanese. The organs were surgically removed at age 22. I was tested to be free of venereal diseases. The organs were of normal function. I was not receiving female hormone treatment. The length at full erection was 16.1 cm [6.3 inches]. First interested buyer will get them, or I will also consider selling to a group. Will prepare and cook as the buyer requests, at his chosen location. If you have questions, please contact me by DM or e-mail.”
Seconds anyone? According to the deleted blog post by Matsuzawa, the hard, rubbery penis root almost bent his fork, and he spit it out after a few chews. The only taste was of the red wine that it had been pre-stewed in. Source: calorielab.com
The genital gala was not well received by Tokyo authorities. Sugiyama has been charged with indecent exposure and faces two years in prison and a $32,000 fine.
This salacious saga ends with an amputated appendage, a disgruntled diner and criminal charges. Crime watch observes might conclude that Mao’s manhood meal was a waste of perfectly good mushrooms.
