Japanese Chef Serves Own Genitals For Dinner

Nothing in that headline is inaccurate or an exaggeration. Mao Sugiyama is a Japanese chef who recently served his/her surgically removed male genitals to five connoisseurs for about $250 a plate. WARNING: Yes, there are photos.

1. This Is Mao Sugiyama, Born A Man But A Self-Described “Asexual”

2. Sugiyama Underwent Voluntary Genital Removal, But Does Not Identify As Either A Male Or A Female

3. Being A Chef AND A Performance Artist, Sugiyama Decided It Would Be A Grand Idea To Throw A Party And Cook The Removed Genitals For The Highest Bidders

Via CalorieLab:

“‘Ham Cybele – Century Banquet,’ at the ‘Asagaya Loft A’ event space in the Suginami Ward of Tokyo. ‘Century’ in Japanese is a homophone for the Japanese word for ‘genitals’; ‘Ham Cybele’ refers to the Anatolian mother goddess, prefixed with an appropriate word for tough meat to create a phrase whose initials match Sugiyama’s artist name of HC.”
