    That is the sickest thing I’ve ever read here. Even worse than when I was in college and the instructor of a “Problems in human Relations” class informed us all (co-ed class) that all the women should taste their menstrual blood and the men needed to go home and taste their wifes (or girlfriends). She said this under the theory that we need to “like” ourself.

    I decided Self-hate would be better than going to that extreme to prove “I Like Me”

    Thank you, Kevin, for giving me recognition for fighting the good fight. I do what I can.

    Can’t say no more Cathy.:) When does this happen anyway? I can’t recall my children eating theirs. :)

    Assuming the case on which Maria was consulted is related to coprophagia in a sexual context, I’m heartened to see the medical issues finally being examined. The true test of one’s fitness as a health professional, IMO, is the ability to get past judgment and personal “squick” and move on to actually helping.
