Just when you thought you’d seen it all in hipster Shoreditch, a new cookery class with a twist is about to make things even weirder.
Step aside Freakshakes, rainbow bagels and deep-fried ice cream – a new foodie treat in the form of a “Victoria Spooge Cake” is about to blow your mind. No pun intended.
Yes, you read correctly. The first ever semen-based cookery class is set to hit London.
The session will reportedly run on a “BYOS” (Bring Your Own Semen) basis. Amateur bakers will be asked to bring along at least five teaspoons of their own – or their partner’s – ejaculate fluid for the workshop, which will see them learning how to whip up the most unusual of three-course meals with their own ingredients.
The class is run by London-based subscription platform called Wonderush, that describes itself as “a discovery commerce platform to find and book a variety of local classes and experiences.”
They say the bizarre cookery class will go ahead if a minimum of 30 participants register their interest on the site.
On their blog, aptly titled “Things To Do, Try Something New”, the Wonderush ad reads: “The health benefits of semen have long been debated, but for the first time ever, amateur chefs will be taught how to use it as a cooking ingredients in appetisers, mains, desserts and drinks.”
Dishes on the menu include ‘jerk’ chicken, semen-salted caramel dessert or even ‘Schlong Island Iced Tea’ cocktails.
Wonderush founder Nelson Sivalingam said: “I know some people will find this hard to swallow, but the idea of cooking with semen isn’t as farfetched as one might think. Wonderush is all about giving people unique classes and experiences, and although our usual classes are somewhat tamer, this should give people a taste of our sense of humour!”
Indeed, cooking with semen doesn’t seem to be an entirely new concept.
The idea may have been inspired by the author and semen-cooking enthusiast Paul “Fotie” Photenhauer, who runs the website CookingWithCum.com and published the cookery book ‘Natural Harvest: A Collection of Semen-Based Recipes’ in 2008.
More recently, in 2013, he released ‘Semenology – The Semen Bartender’s Handbook’ featuring a variety of cocktail recipes created with the help of this “freshly harvested ingredient”.
He told SF Weekly: “If you want your partner to swallow, you should be willing to eat your own semen – I mean, it’s your semen.”
The semen cookery classes are being endorsed by renowned sex educator Alix Fox, who said: “While the idea of bringing cum into the kitchen will doubtless appal many people, some individuals find the idea of consuming such an intimate substance an incredible turn-on.”
The organisers are currently crowd-funding for the classes and their other schemes through Seedrs, and are hoping to roll classes out into other cities across the country if they result in a success.
So far Wonderush has exceeded its £200,003 target by over £20,000.
