The things going on in the world now, are really outrageous. They can drive someone crazy.

News that a 22-year-old Japanese artist, Mao Sugiyama, had his penis and testicles surgically removed by a physician in March and kept them frozen for two months.

Sugiyama, who, together with an increasing number of people in Japan, consider themselves asexual, that is without gender, initially thought about eating the genitals himself, but decided to solicit paying customers to help pay his hospital bills for the surgery. He did this via a tweets saying

“[Please Retweet] 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.

After assuring his customers that the frozen genitals had been certified to be free of infections, Sugiyama seasoned and braised the meat under the supervision of a certified cook, then served it to five customers at an event hall.

Each diner paid 20,000 yen ($250) for a plate of genitals à la Sugiyama, with mushrooms and a parsley garnish.

Via twitter, Sugiyama said steps were taken so the act met all relevant laws, including a ban on organ sales, processing of medical waste and even food sanitation requirements.

Police in Tokyo said they knew of the action, but added that it had not broken the law as cannibalism is not illegal in Japan. An officer at Suginami police station told AFP: “We are aware of the case. There was nothing (criminal) to it. It does not violate any detailed rules. There is nothing to take action about.”

In an email to a news agency, the genitals-less Sugiyama confirmed the event had taken place and said it was to raise awareness about “sexual minorities, x-gender, asexual people”. He said he was readying to publish an official account of the day.

Another of Sugiyama’s tweets reads: “I receive questions from some women and men… asking ‘Will there be a next time? Please host it again.’ But there is only one set of male organ. Unfortunately, I have no plan for the next time.

I guess he’s stuck with being “without balls” or as my people would say “This guy no get balls”

I’m really sorry for people who decide to go against what they should be, this is even worse than being gay, ASEXUAL?? That’s on the same level with plants. He’s basically a plant with brains.

That apart, I’ll certainly love to taste genitals à la Sugiyama (picture below), I know, shameless much, but its YOLO! Right?

The Meal

First arrow from the left: “Gold jade” (penis); second arrow from the left “Jade pocket” (testicle)

Oh well, I wonder how long its gonna take before we get to order another restaurant special. Have a lovely weekend, and don’t cut your genitals off and call it something genitally (cheesy but genital related) like ball du homo sapiens or something like that.

No wound yaseff!! 😀
