“Don’t knock it till ya try it.” It’s one of those broad terms that doesn’t apply to everything (like gas station sushi or having sex with a beehive). But it does remind us to keep an open mind. Otherwise, we could miss out on one of life’s many pleasures, or something that could improve our overall well-being. I can personally vouch for those butthole cleaning toilets. As someone with an unprecedented amount of ass grass, I find myself wiping and wiping and wiping and still not scrubbing it all off. It’s a real problem. Then I stayed at a hostel somewhere in South Asia where they didn’t even have toilet paper — just a hot shot of water directly to the poop chute. I was apprehensive at first, but let me tell ya… once I pulled the trigger it was as if Jesus Christ himself had baptized my asshole, cleansed it of all the foul deeds it had brought forth into this world. I’d never felt so fresh. No more cling-ons, either. I am now a firm believer in the phrase, “It’s better to wash it off than smear it around.”
Anyway… in the spirit of trying new things, we asked Chivers on Instagram and Facebook to sound off with their own awesome experiences that at first sounded a bit… off. And believe me, some of these sound really off. But hopefully, you’ll take a stab at least one of these strange-sounding delicacies and walk away with a newfound appreciation for the bizarre.
