Remember that 'vagina sourdough'? Here's how it turned out

*puts breakfast aside*

ON TUESDAY, WE told you about Zoe Stavri, a blogger who decided to make sourdough bread using yeast from her own vagina.

When life gives you lemons and all that.

The experiment elicited quite a reaction on Twitter.

Stavri documented  the process on her blog and on the hashtag #c**tsourdough.

So how did the sourdough taste? Did the vaginal yeast add a distinctive flavour or make no difference at all?

Stavri shared photos of the final product and, well, it looks like regular old sourdough.

As for the taste?

It tasted like a pretty damn nice sourdough bread. Not the tangiest sourdough I’ve ever eaten, but solidly tasty. I really, really liked it. After having a little bite, I ate a slice with butter. The bread was still slightly warm and the butter soaked in and it was absolutely heavenly.


Stavri also clarified that it did not taste like vagina.

A lot of people on the internet seem to be under the impression it would taste like c**t. Of course it fucking didn’t. The only thing that really tastes like p***y is p***y. Given that this is a loaf of bread, obviously it didn’t taste like p***y. Learn biology, buddy.

In fact, she doesn’t believe that any vaginal yeast was actually present in the sourdough.

Since it’s behaved exactly as one would expect sourdough with a conventional starter to behave at every step of the way, in smell and consistency and behaviour, I think that it’s very likely that any yeast from my vag never grew, and what I have produced is literally just a normal sourdough starter, with neither vaginal yeast nor vaginal bacteria present.

So now.

All that fuss over a regular loaf of sourdough.
