Indulge yourself

This company is marketing “edible anuses” to gay men for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and a chocolate company in London is hoping you’ll consider giving your sweetheart a box of chocolate buttholes as a token of your love.

“There’s no wrong way to eat an ass,” the product description reads, “but our serving suggestion is to pucker up and pop one of these chocolate starfish in your lover’s mouth (if you can bear to share).”

The candies, made with pure Belgian chocolate, are said to be moulded from “a real butt hole” and are designed for “erotic indulgence”, whatever that means.

They come in three different flavors: dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate.

According to its website, the Edible Anus is the brainchild of London artist, Magnus Irvin, who created them in 2006 for an art exhibition. The exhibition was a hit, so he teamed up with a Dutch chocolatier to mass produce the confections to be sold in retail shops around the world.

The company’s “mission statement” reads:

We believe the anus range can dissolve cultural boundaries of race, gender, class, and sexual orientation, by using novelty to challenge deep rooted preconceptions in a humorous and easily digestible form. So join the uprising, spread the joy, and let’s help the world to LOVE THE ANUS, and themselves.
