Would you ever consider cooking with your menstrual blood? What do you think about magic that uses menstrual blood? Let us know in the comments!
There are few bodily fluids in the world more taboo and controversy-inspiring than menstrual blood. People react to periods the way you’d expect people to react to things that are way more unnatural and horrifying, especially considering that half the population has to deal with their menstrual cycle at some point in their lives. That’s why people react so strongly when we hear stories about people that involve the stuff: periods are taboo and nobody wants to talk about them. A great example of this taboo in action is the backlash an unknown woman received on the Internet for revealing that she uses her menstrual blood to cook for her husband.People were understandably outraged, especially considering that her husband didn’t know that it was happening, and as much as periods shouldn’t be so taboo, you probably shouldn’t be cooking with menstrual blood. However, there’s a really long and old tradition of women using their menstrual blood to cook for the men in their lives for different reasons, and unsurprisingly, it has a lot to do with magic. Here’s everything you need to know about why people use their menstrual blood in food, not to mention other things.
