Squid Squirts Woman’s Tongue With Sperm Bag in Korea

What would you feel if you were eating a squid then suddenly it squirted its sperm bag in your tongue? This happened to a woman in Seoul, Korea.

A 63-yr-old Korean woman experienced severe pain in her oral cavity immediately after eating a portion of parboiled squid along with its internal organs. In effect, she did not swallow the portion, but spat it out immediately. She had to go to the hospital when she felt severe pain and several “small, squirming” creepy crawlies in her mouth.

Doctors found twelve small, white spindle-shaped, bug-like organisms stuck in the mucous membrane of her tongue, cheek, and gingiva. They initially thought they were squid parasites because they were still moving during the examination.

However, on the basis of their morphology and the presence of the sperm bag, the foreign bodies were identified as squid spermatophores. All were completely removed, along with the affected mucosa.

Researchers think that the squid’s sperm bags came out while the woman chewed her food. Squids contain an ejaculatory apparatus called ‘sperm bags’ for releasing sperm mass when it comes into contact with a female. The bags become attached to the female’s body before the sperm slowly emerge from it.

Experts said to remove the internal organs or boil the tasty treat long enough to kill its sperm bags when consuming raw squid.
