A recently launched Indiegogo campaign is seeking €150,000 to fund the creation of the world’s first vagina beer, a bottled brew that would contain the “quintessence of femininity,” e.g. vaginal bacteria.
While the company is Polish – and oh-so-cleverly named the Order of Yoni for the Sanskrit word for “womb” – the ludicrous venture has ties to the Czech Republic: the woman who will lend her lactic acid bacteria to “Bottled Instinct” beer, and who appears in the promo materials in lingerie, is Czech model Alexandra Brendlova.
According to the company’s technically rigorous FAQ (“We take the bacteria from vagina using gynecological stick”), much time was invested in finding just the right woman for the job:
“We selected a beautiful, very intelligent, woman for our first beer and she personifies beauty, intelligence and will be an inspiration for our future models.”
Hold on there haters, non-believers, and women like me who are currently searching for the nearest object to hurl, the Yoni mean no direspect.
“Firstly, Yoni is a sacred Hindu name of vagina and it symbolizes our respect to vagina as a sacrum…We are convinced such respect should be also present in our modern Western culture. The Order believes the beer is a tribute to our mothers and a tribute to the act of childbirth. It is far, far from disrespect for a woman.”
Apparently that respect extends only to the hot models and celebrities the company invites to make donations. The exception? Anyone willing to ante up a €10,000 contribution gets 60 bottles of signature brew made from “Girlfriend’s bacteria.”
The science behind vagina beer, as outlined below, is still a little shaky, which leads us to believe that this could be a PR stunt:
“The bacteria, lactobacillus, transfers woman’s features, allure, grace, glamour, and her instincts into beers and other products, turning them into a dance with lovely angel.”
So far just €174 has been raised by eight backers.
