Years ago I saw a piece on TV about a woman who always saved the placenta from her births so that she could eat them. In what I considered the most surreal scene, the program’s host found a random vegetarian on the street and convinced her to eat some of the woman’s placenta since it did not come from an animal. It was absolutely disgusting.
How do people discover these facts? Who was the first person to say, “Hey look, the baby is still attached, maybe that thing is good for you! Lets eat it and find out!” I mean…wtf….seriously? I’ll eat spinach first, and I never thought i would say that.
I can see why it might seem gross, but it’s purely a matter of perspective. Consider it against what happens in slaughterhouses – to mammals with the same five senses and almost identical nervous systems to us – just to get that burger in your bun . . .
Wait – she convinced a homeless person to eat it because it didn’t come from an animal?? Uh…humans ARE animals! And sorry, when mammals in a slaughterhouse use their opposable thumbs to use a fork and knife to eat their OWN internal organs, I’ll do the same.
I don’t see anything wrong with this. I eat cow liver and I know people that eat cow tongue and cow brains. Chicken yolks are the equivalent to a placenta. Heck, some people eat duck eggs with baby ducks still in them.
People eat things that others find disgusting. If we weren’t in such an affluent society, where we can just go to the store and buy dead animals, I bet this wouldn’t be such a big deal.
I would honestly try a little piece, if someone offered it to me. It would probably be a once in a lifetime opportunity, how could you simply refuse it?
By. The. Fuck. And you thought *eating* it was a bit strange?
At least when you eat the thing it won’t be hanging about in a jar on a shelf, creeping you out with it’s eyeless stare for the rest of your life.
Whoever worked out how tan and prep human placenta for use in soft toy manufacture had way too much fucking time on their hands.
How can you possibly compare gratifying yourself to eating something that came out of you? A better comparison would be for a man to masturbate into his own mouth. I mean drinking your own piss wont kill you, but I would rather not and semen is full of protein but most dudes don’t jack off into their own mouths. Any picking your nose and eating is now not disgusting either?
I’m not judging people who eat their own placenta becasue it’s obviously not the worst thing someone can do. However yes, in my and other peoples opinion, eating something that just came out of you is fucking disgusting. And no I don’t plan on laying a big deuce tonight and baking it the oven and calling it a meal. sorry.
Semen is not meant to be ingested. Placenta are eaten by a lot of animals. I just see it as another natural thing that mothers can do, but some don’t. It’s kinda like breast feeding and natural births.
You think eating the placenta is just “another natural thing mothers do”, yet you think having sex with a pregnant woman is disrespectful to the mother and baby. Oh, and you prefer girls who spit rather than swallow.
Dude, your values system is seriously fucked up. I mean, a big tick to cannibalism, but a big thumbs down for really quite normal sexual practices. Freak.
@71 Actually I wasn’t concerned about the mother. It was disrespectful of the parents(ejaculating in woman is like putting the baby in in a bag and cumming all over it). It’s not really cannibalism either. I used to bite skin off my fingertips and swallow them but clearly that doesn’t make a cannibal. It you want to be technical everybody who’s ever been hungry for awhile has self cannibalized themselves. You could call nursing incestuous as well, but that doesn’t make it so. Try not to be simple minded.
hahahaha, “Having sex with a pregnant woman is like putting a baby in a bag and cumming all over it”
You don’t seem to know the anatomy of a woman that well. I’m not going to educate you, but your analogy is pretty far off. How about you try not to be so simple minded, before telling everyone else that?
