Watch: Sperm for breakfast? Single mum explains why everyone should be drinking it - in smoothies

A single mum and model in the UK is encouraging others to follow in her footsteps and drink sperm to avoid winter colds.

 

The 29-year-old personal trainer, Tracy Kiss from Buckinghamshire said her best friend helps her by supplying his sperm everyday to help give her a strong immunity.

The mum of two has previously advocated on her YouTube channel the use of sperm as a facial to help with a skin condition she has called rosacea.

Everyday Ms Kiss drinks sperm in her smoothie, but not before making her friend get a sexually transmitted disease check beforehand, The Sun reported.

"It can taste really good - depending on what my friend has been eating. My other mates think I'm strange but I don't give a toss," she said.

It took her a while to rope her 31-year-old friend into supplying her with sperm once a week because "he was concerned I'd use it to impregnate myself," she said.

"But once I'd convinced him it was for my beauty regime he agreed."

She said her friend gives her a warning if he's been eating any pungent foods like asparagus, but usually she will drink it straight off the spoon.

"Sperm is an awesome product and we should stop being so ridiculous about it, the health benefits have been well researched and more women and men should take advantage of it particularly as its made by our own bodies," said Ms Kiss.

But a medical writer for the Sun, Dr Carol Cooper said there is no evidence supporting Ms Kiss's claims.

"There's no scientific evidence whatsoever that drinking sperm will stop flu. Plus, depending on where the semen comes from, you could be at risk of catching viruses including HIV," said Dr Cooper.

A general practitioner in London, Dr Sarah Jarvis said sperm has no nutritional value.

'Whole lot of hurt' - Kiwi music stars share their experiences of P addiction

In a powerful video released today, famous Kiwis talked about methamphetamine use and how it affected their lives. 

Musicians Tiki Taane and Marcus Powell, NZ lightweight Muay Thar champion Miriam Tio and everyday Kiwis William Swift and Tane Dunn shared their experiences with P and the turning points triggered their recovery. 

The video published on YouTube is part of a Buzzed social media campaign by Community Action Youth and Drugs (CAYAD) Auckland, designed to reach out to young people and their loved ones affected by drug and alcohol harm.

"Looking back, it was a really interesting time, just a whole lot of hurt, hurting all my loved ones, hurting my friends, everyone around me because it had made me quite selfish," said Blindspott's Marcus Powell.

Senior Adviser at CAYAD, Kate Duder said the video aims to show young people there are turning points to overcome addiction.

"Someone showing they care about a person is most often a catalyst for users getting help for an alcohol or drug addiction," she said.

Ms Duder was the lead author of the 'Knowing Someone Cares' report about the experiences of young people with a high risk of alcohol and drug-related harms.

"For many of the young people we interviewed, feeling like they didn't have anyone who cared about them led them to care less about themselves, which they felt led to increased alcohol and drug use," she said.
