Wisconsin PhD Student Makes Vagina Yogurt
University of Wisconsin PhD student decides to explore the power of her vagina…by making yogurt.
Up next on Cooking with Cult of Weird: Vagina Yogurt!
Whether we chose to live in denial or not, it is no secret that vaginas are full of weird things – bacteria, living organisms, the missing planes of Flight 19. Well it turns out lactobacillus, a common bacteria used to culture milk, cheese and yogurt, is also found in the vagina.
So of course someone from Wisconsin would decide to put that to use. But rather than make cheese, as you would expect, it was something much more sinister. I use that particular word because the thought of thick, drippy vagina yogurt is so much worse than vagina cheese.
In her experiment, University of Wisconsin PhD student Cecilia Westbrook used a wooden spoon to collect her ingredients, then let it ferment in a dish overnight. In the morning, she mixed it with blueberries…and ate it.
She says it tasted like Indian yogurt.
So the next obvious question is…does Indian yogurt come from vaginas?
