Japanese Artist Mao Sugiyama Cooks and Serves His Own Genitals to 5 Diners at Public ‘Ham Cybele’ Banquet

A Japanese artist publicly cooked and served his own surgically-removed genitals to five “lucky” diners in Tokyo last month.

CalorieLab reports that Mao Sugiyama, aka “HC,” came up with the insanely unique idea of grilling his own manhood and was able to do so after undergoing a radical surgical procedure in which his penis and testicles were removed. Sugiyama, who is a self-described ‘asexual,’ treated himself to the surgery for his 22nd birthday.

After the surgery, Sugiyama tweeted:

[Please Retweet] I am offering my male genitals (full penis, testes, scrotum) as a meal for 100,000 yen [$1,250]. I’m Japanese. The organs were surgically removed at age 22. I was tested to be free of venereal diseases. The organs were of normal function. I was not receiving female hormone treatment. The length at full erection was 16.1 cm [6.3 inches]. First interested buyer will get them, or I will also consider selling to a group. Will prepare and cook as the buyer requests, at his chosen location. If you have questions, please contact me by DM or e-mail.

That tweet generated so much buzz that Sugiyama decided to host a public tasting, which he called ‘Ham Cybele- Century Banquet,’ at Tokyo’s Asagaya Loft event space. Six people signed up for the $250/plate experience; five of them showed up for the big date. Sugiyama, dressed in chef’s attire, seasoned and braised his own genitals on a portable gas burner and served them up in various creative dishes.

Shigenobu Matsuzawa, a 29-year-old event planner, was one of the “lucky” diners. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance, so I decided on the spur of the moment to do it,” he tweeted.

Diners had to sign waivers releasing Sugiyama from anything that might have gone wrong from eating human genitals. A local police spokesman told CalorieLab that despite many citizen complaints, there was nothing they could do, since cannibalism isn’t illegal in Japan.

But, “we’re going to talk to the people at Asagaya Loft and ask them what is going on and why they hosted such an event,” the spokesman said.

UPDATE: Despite attempting to carefully adhere to all pertinent Japanese laws, Sugiyama has been charged with indecent exposure. A Tokyo Metropolitan Police spokesman told Agence France-Presse that four individuals, including the artist, “openly display the severed male genitals to the assembled 71 guests”

    FAKE. Japanese men don’t have enough junk to feed 5 people! Maybe an appetizer for one.

      You’ve seen lots of Japanese cocks?

  3. what a liar that guy isMay 25, 2012 at 8:57 amReply

    Yeah dude is lying. No way he had a 6.1 inch penis.

    Thats just bullcrap. If they would have not been small, he would have not needed to mention the (fake) size.

    He’s full of crap. He did not have a 6.1 inch penis.

    Just look at that picture of the plate.. the third item is the “penis” – does that look like its 6 inches ?

      Remember… it was cut into five pieces.

    !6 cm is not even that big, and of course it has shrunk during cooking like any other piece of meat-

    Well, at full erection, he says, his dick was 6.1 inches. That’s average. Not porn-star, but I’m sure if he’d wanted he could fuck someone good with that. Now, when it’s NOT at full erection, it’s gonna be like half that size or something. And, meat shrinks when it cooks. So, there ya go.

      You’re the second person to point out that “meat shrinks when it cooks.” LOL.

    I would like to taste it, I always wondered how human flesh taste. BUT I would never somebody or cut off my balls to find out… I’m not crazy.
    But you …. you are hypocrites: flesh is flesh.

    I have a feeling we’ll be hearing about how this “artist” commits suicide now soon enough.

    Poor guy, must have some real mental problems.
