Meiwes

In 2001, 41-year-old Mr Meiwes advertised on the internet for a well-built male prepared to be slaughtered and then consumed.
The ad was answered by 43-year-old Bernd-Jurgen Brandes.
According to Meiwes, Brandes agreed to have his penis cut off. Meiwes then flambéed it and the two men ate it together.
Meiwes then stabbed Brandes repeatedly in the neck until he was dead, dissected the corpse and ate it.
The whole thing was captured on a camcorder; a recording the jurors will have to watch.
It’s the claim that Bernd-Jurgen Brandes was a willing victim which really baffles us. It simply beggars belief. What kind of twisted psychological state can drive a man to volunteer to be killed and eaten?


The instinct towards self-preservation drives our horror. On an individual level we don’t want our bodies to be sliced, diced or dismembered in any way whatsoever. At a social level, we know that eating each other would destroy the species. Thus the taboo.

But it’s surprising how these mortal fears can be overcome by other instincts; especially the one that makes us protect our young. Peter Randall, from Sevenoaks in Kent, hit the headlines this week because he wanted to sell one of his kidneys. He needed the money to help fund medical treatment for his six-year-old daughter who has Cerebral Palsy.

So he posted an advert for the organ on ebay with a reserve price of £50,000. Unfortunately for him, squeamishness is institutionalised and his ad was removed by the company.

The sale of body parts is banned… presumably to prevent people like Mr Meiwes – who probably should be institutionalised – from purchasing them for dinner.



ok the above is from a bbc page, and this is pretty old news. What are your views of cannbalism? I have seen and watched some of the most disgusting films in the world (dont ask me which ones), but i still find cannibalism and the underlined bits pretty grewsome...

Well the instinct for self preservation may overcome that very taboo. Remember that plane crash in the Andes, where a group of people where stranded and had nothing to eat? Hmm?

Why eat people when we can eat yummy pigs, cows and chickens?
Exactly dammit, and they don't have friends and family to worry about

I worked in a museum and I got to play with all the non=PC (readinteresting) stuff including cannibal bowls made out of skulls with inlaid mother-on-pearl and special four-pronged forks for eating brains with. My favourite part was the bone store... oo and the poisonous arrows and swords.

<those were the days>
