Jizz jewellery, anyone? You’ll be pleased (or devastated) to know that people are now turning semen into wearable pieces, so next time you dump a load, consider upcycling instead of just aiming for that sad old sock.
Jeweller and sculptor Amanda Booth crafts intricate pieces out of semen samples sent to her workshop by clients, which she dries and powders before moulding into trinkets.
Since she started her business in 2021, Booth has also made wearable pieces out of cremated remains, locks of hair and breastmilk.
Speaking to Vice, Booth explained: “Fresh samples are one thing, but when they've been in the mail for a little bit, I mean... it smells like semen, you know what I mean?”
She added: “We process them [semen samples] at the end of the day, otherwise we're sitting in the smell all day and it's just... We did it in the morning one day and it was just like, 'No, I'm never doing that again',”
When Booth began her business last year, she started sharing her work on TikTok, prompting one person to ask beneath one of her videos whether or not she’s ever considered making pieces out of ‘man juices’.
Booth half-jokingly floated the idea on Facebook, and was met with serious online orders.
Booth teamed up with her husband Jesse Mullin to trial the process, working out she’d need at least a teaspoon of jizz for the right ‘clay-to-cum ratio’.
After sharing a TikTok post about her first semen pieces last month, Booth’s video has blown up and her DMs are chock-a-block with requests.
Epsy, one of Booth’s clients, explained to Vice that they’d ordered a ‘pearl’ jizz pendant because they wanted something that would represent her and her husband’s ‘dominant and submissive’ relationship.
Epsy explained: “We ended up opting to have my husband use a condom, and then cut the end off of the condom, to deposit the sample in a specimen tube. We then sealed the tube with electrical tape around the cap, and vacuum sealed it before placing it in a padded envelope, to be mailed.”
Jenna Schatzman, another client, revealed she and her husband wanted a semen ring, explaining: “He was immediately intrigued and thought it would be such a fun way to have something I could wear that is almost as a reminder of our love and sex life.”
