I don’t personally believe in trigger warnings, at all, for anything other than spoilers or corpses. If I did, however, I’d be warning you that I’m going to be covering the story of a woman who is making bread out of vagina yeast.
Feminist blogger Zoe Stavri is detailing the process on her blog, where she issues a content warning for “misogynistic and disablist language” in embedded tweets, but not the fact that she is farming yeast from her vagina via dildo in order to turn it into sourdough bread. In her defense, though, it’s pretty brazenly outlined in the headline of the post.
“It all started with a fatal combination of a slightly perverse sense of humour, a keenly scientific mind, and touch of the thrush,” Stavri wrote. “Waking up on Saturday with the familiar itchy burny fanny, I giggled to myself “maybe I could make bread with that”. And that ticked into, “well, I’ve always wanted to try making my own sourdough anyway” and then a “fuck, would that even work?” and then I got curious and the next thing that happened was I was scraping white goop off of a dildo into a bowl of flour mixed with water.”

Stavri has been both blogging and tweeting the process, eventually resulting in the hashtag #cuntsourdough. She began to share the “hate” that she was getting from “disgusted” people, and requested that, in lieu of defending her honor, people donate to her Patreon.
Stavri doesn’t believe that people are actually disgusted by edible thrust, rather asserting that it is much more likely that people are horrified by, and mistrustful of, vaginas. Because that makes more sense than people being grossed out by someone eating a yeast infection.
“I suspect the vast majority of the utter horror about my sourdough isn’t anything to do with ignorance on food hygiene, but more to do with a general mistrust and horror at vag,” she wrote. “I say this because I suspect if I were making my own any-other-thing-except-sourdough-using-vaginal-yeast, people probably would have just left me to it.”
If you’re gagging reading this, you aren’t alone. I’m gagging writing it. And thinking about it. In fact, I may finally swear off bread altogether after today.

Still thinking about that #cuntsourdough. Going to make a cheesecake out of my dickcheese. To prepare, no washing for a week.
