Partially cooked squid inseminates woman’s mouth
The 63 year old suffered “severe pain” and a “prickling, foreign body sensation” in her mouth after taking a bite of the partially cooked seafood, according to a study published in February in the Journal of Parasitology.
The unidentified woman spit the squid out immediately, according to the report, but not before the cephalopod injected its sperm bags into the mucous membranes of her tongue and cheek.
She went to the hospital, where doctors apparently found a dozen “small, white spindle shaped bug like organisms” which they believed to be parasites in the woman’s mouth.
Researchers later determined that the organism were sperm bags not parasites.
They believe that the bags were discharged as the woman chewed.
The bags are ejaculatory apparatuses that slowly release sperm when attached to a female’s body, according to Fairfax New Zealand News.
This isn’t the first reported case of a squid trying to inseminate a human mouth. Several people in Japan have complained of oral stings after chowing down on the seafood, the news site reports.
Dana Staaf of the blog “Squid A Day” said that most calamari lovers have no reason to freak out.
Most Western squid preperation removes the internal organs of the cephalopod or boils the seafood long enough to kill the sperm bags.
