Mmmm, tastes like chicken.
Last month, an illustrator from Tokyo, Japan, known by the nickname “HC”, held a special dinner during which he seasoned and braised his own amputated genitalia and served the dish to six handpicked diners. The lucky patrons who got a taste of Sugiyama’s junk paid about $250 for the meal.
The amputated genitals were medical waste, returned to Mao Sugiyama upon request after his sexual reassignment surgery. Sugiyama is an M-F transsexual.
“I am offering my male genitals (full penis, testes, scrotum) as a meal for 100,000 yen,” Sugiyama tweeted. “I will prepare and cook as the buyer requests, at his chosen location. Please retweet.”
It was his original intent to sell the whole package (pun intended) to a single buyer for $1,250, but his Twitter offer gained such notoriety that he decided to expand the operation.
One day before the event was scheduled, Sugiyama tweeted that he was “starting to thaw them out,” along with a photograph (below) of his icy testicles and penis. When it came time to finally prep the cuisine, Sugiyama did so publicly, over a portable gas stove with the assistance of a licensed food preparation specialist.
One of the six cannibal patrons posted a detailed account of his experience at the Sugiyama event, including the photo below of Sugiyama prepping his genitals for human consumption. All six diners were required to sign a waiver that released Sugiyama from any legal liability that might arise from the consumption of human male genitalia.
