Forbidden Foods

It turns out that the world of contraception and conception is filled with a lot of misconception. While reading all those misunderstandings, it soon became clear that many people avoided using the word "vagina".

Forbidden Foods is a recipe website based on the collection of urban euphemisms for "vagina" in the category of food. But there is more to this website than just the ironic tone to make clear that our use of words does not make sense. Eating and sex share another surprising connection, they both release endorphins. They both make us feel good. The imagery on these web pages evokes rethinking and reviewing our definition of pleasure.
