Be sure to bring some Oreos

OK. People officially weird me out.

On my way into work today, I heard a story on the radio regarding a new bar in Toronto called "Lactation Station."Apparently, the woman who is opening it said that the menu would feature six different kinds of breast milk.

Say it with me people. Ewwwwwwww.

The thought of drinking breast milk (i.e. the milky fluid that comes straight out of a woman's breast) just absolutely grosses me out. The only people, it would seem, who'll attend this fine establishment would be betting guys and perverts. (Please correct me if I'm wrong.)

Gross.

My only thought after reading this... do you drink it right FROM the breast?

Just saw more info on this....

...apparently it was part of some type of "performance art" show back in July 2006. The art show was called... "Five Holes."

This is the info:
At the Lactation Station Breast Milk Bar, audiences are invited to sample pasteurized human breast milk, donated by lactating new mothers. Participants will be guided through the tastings and given information about the donors’ milk attributes, to enhance the appreciation of each specimen’s unique flavor. The performance takes the primal bodily function of breastfeeding, which has been socially regulated as a private and concealed act, and brings it to a public environment. Female and male participants are welcome to discuss the issues honestly, with a sense of play and without judgment. For safety, all donors will be screened, and breast milk will be pasteurized and then culture tested before sampling.

I am thoroughly disgusted.

I'm not sure I would even taste my own breast milk, let alone some randomly donated!

YICK!
