Semen Necklace: Would You Wear It?

Pearl NecklaceFrom artist Leah Piepgras comes this Pearl Necklace, which is described as "a seemingly amorphous cast silver shape on a chain that is actually an accurate representation of semen."

Um. Ew.

I think I need a backstory to this piece. How about you?

Of course, this necklace comes from the same artist who has also created a five-piece place setting with plates that depict "a map of the digestive tract, from mouth to anus. They are a reminder that processes are taking place within you while you are eating, promoting mindfulness."

Pass the anus fritters, Maw!

But back to the Pearl Necklace. It retails for $420 and is available in two different, uh, spurts.

Would you wear it? Could you wear it? What would your partner think about it?

I. Must. Know.

Ummm, sperm is a wonderful thing.  It allowed me to have two sons.  But wearing a representation of it around my neck, no.  Whatever happened to pretty hearts or flowers?

Could they of picked a better model? The necklace isn't ugly, but I am not a jewelery person.

I kind of think I would like the style of it if I didn't know what it was supposed to represent because that's just gross, but the necklace itself is kind of interesting.

I love it! I think it's hilarious. What a conversation starter.

I am laughing hysterically. I can't even show my husband. He can't help giggling when I wear an actual pearl necklace. This might send him into convulsive fits.

Can you imagine an old lady wearing it not knowing what it was until someone said something to her?

Oh my god!  I might wear it, but I'd lie to my grandma about what it is.

I was just bragging to a friend on how much your blog has helped with my fashion sense.
But I now know too much. I think you should pair that with the hairy leg stockings for your next fashion dare. :)
