Over the years we have been told to add a tonne of different products to our smoothies. From almond meal, to maca powder and acai, we thought we’d heard them all!
But we were very, VERY wrong, because one mother is trying to tell us all to put sperm into our smoothies.
Yes, you heard that correctly.
Mother of two, Tracy Kiss, from The Queen’s Country has been putting her friend’s sperm into her smoothies and is convinced it helps her to beat the common cold and stay healthy.
Tracey spoke with The Sun, saying, “I’d been feeling run down and had no energy, but now I’m full of beans and my mood has improved.
If that wasn’t icky enough, she went on.
“It can taste really good – depending on what my friend has been eating. My other mates think I’m strange, but I don’t give a toss.”
We’re sure many of you may find this a little strange. It must have been the most peculiar of conversations when she first asked her friend to partake in this venture…
“I know he’s healthy, doesn’t smoke, drink or do drugs and I made him have an STI check.”
Tracy is a 29-year-old personal trainer and she is confident a spoonful of sperm a day keeps the doctor away…
She’ll normally pair this unusual extra with almond or coconut milk, fruit and seeds in a smoothie, stating, “Every batch tastes different… If he’s been drinking alcohol or eaten something particularly pungent like asparagus, I ask him to give me a heads up so I know not to drink it neat (straight).”
Tracy believes that everyone has to “stop being so ridiculous” about what she’s doing and that “more women and men should take advantage of it” for the health benefits it supposedly holds.
However, please note! Most Doctors don’t concur with her advice.
Dr. Carol Cooper told The Sun that her cold remedy actually has no scientific basis, emphasising the high risk it can put you at in terms of STI’s.
She also added that it does in fact contain high levels of zinc, but not as much as is found in food and vitamin tablets.
We really don’t know what to think about all this… but we’ll be keeping our smoothies, umm, sperm-free.
As to any extra-curricula activities any of you partake in… to each their own.
Inform yourself and put safety first.
And, to some of the Men out there: this is NOT your new excuse to get girls to, you know... Consent is where it's at.
