At this point, we’ve heard it all when it comes to crazy COVID-19 cures. People have touted everything from hard drugs to excessive booze consumption, and a very dodgy-sounding ‘miracle mineral solution’ as the cure to coronavirus – and so far, they’ve all be shutdown as BS by medical experts and governments alike. These baseless claims reached boiling point recently when U.S. President Donald Trump suggested injecting people with disinfectant to try and get rid of COVID-19. However – no ‘cure’ has made us collectively cringe in disgust as much as this woman, who has been ‘fighting’ off COVID-19 with sperm smoothies.
Hear all about these hilarious ‘cures’ and ’causes’ below:
Yes, you read that correctly. SPERM SMOOTHIES.
Instagram influencer, bodybuilder and mum of two Tracy Kiss says she’s been ingesting her boyfriend’s sperm at least four times a week and even uses it as a facial at least once a month. In an interview with The Sun, Kiss said, “the purity of it is just wonderful.”
“People are stocking up on pasta, but really it’s about looking at your health and what goes into your body,” she said.
According to Closer Online, Kiss also claimed she’s been drinking sperm smoothies for four years and she’s “never felt better.”
“I’m never ill, either,” she said. “In this pandemic, I’m not really concerned about getting the illness, as my immune system is so strong.”
“More people should consider it. There’s no need to feel freaked out – it’s completely natural and has worked wonders for me. I feel no embarrassment about it all. Why should I?”
It might be natural, but according to Dr. Sarah Jarvis, the idea of drinking sperm smoothies “doesn’t have the slightest nugget of science behind it and is frankly extremely worrying.”
“There is absolutely no benefit to drinking semen from one known ‘donor’ even when you know everything about their sexual history,” she told The Sun.
“But if you are taking in semen from more than one person, you would run the risk of sexually transmitted infections as well.”
Dr. Jarvis went on to say that the best way to protect yourself from COVID-19 is through thorough hand-washing and avoiding contact with others as much as possible.
It’s super simple, so why are people complicating with other nonsensical COVID-19 ‘cures’?
