This stunning bisexual beauty goes by the name of Armin Meiwes. I mean, this is the type of person who might just tempt a straight man to, shall we say, experiment. He enjoys a lot of things in life, such as a fine glass of wine, a freshly lit cigarette, and eating cock.
No, no, no… You’ve got it all wrong, Armin doesn’t enjoy eating male chicken… He also doesn’t suck penis… He eats IT. The Male Sex Organ.
Allow me to give you a general overview; Mr. Meiwes is a cannibal and has been an active member of a cannibal fantasy website (The Cannibal Cafe) for quite sometime. Well, on Christmas day 2001 he decided to make his dream a reality.
Enter Bernd Brandes. Brandes was brought over as a guest of Armin and was soon to become his meal too. Bernd was given a tour by Meiwes and his “slaughter room” made an exciting exhibit at the time. There was a holding cage for victims, a meat hook attached to the ceiling, and a bed garnished with a floral bed spread.
Ah, I forgot to mention that Brandes is also a bisexual! Because of this, it was still not awkward when he was led to the bed and disrobed. Bernd then proceeded to down a bottle of Vick’s, some schnapps, and twenty pain killers–all supplied by Meiwes! I guess it’s the least he could do since the next action on his agenda was to saw off the man’s member after he could not successfully sever it with his teeth.
Once Brandes penis was no longer attached, Meiwes attempted to eat it raw. It was too chewy so he decided to cook it with some salt, pepper, and garlic while Brandes just laid in bed. In short, Bernd Brandes’ Bush Beater got Burned. Literally… So it had to be thrown out. Talk about sacrifice in vain.
Meiwes, dissatisfied with his blue-veined meat log, put Bernd into a warm bath in which to bleed out. Armin went into the other room to read Star Trek Adventures while waiting for his victim to die. Well, after ten hours he finally did, but not before he was taken from his tub and put once more to lay in the bed where he was stabbed in the throat several times. The body was then hung on the meat hook in the ceiling where 65 pounds of meat was to be scraped off and portioned into plastic bags before being placed into a rather large meat freezer.
Armin Meiwes ate the meat for the next ten months and even attempted to make flour by grinding some of the poor guy’s bones! He was arrested with 15 pounds of Bernd’s body still in the freezer.
So, why the “perhaps?” Well, I left out one tiny detail… Bernd was a willing partner through this whole shin-dig! They connected on the Cannibal Cafe after Armin put up a wanted ad and Bernd contacted him with the desire of masochism, death, and to be eaten afterwards. Also, Bernd attempted to eat the penis as well and was quite disappointed when he heard Armin had burnt it!
This whole story sounds like it could have simply been fabricated and I wouldn’t expect the “he was a willing partner” defense to stand in the courtroom. So, how did Meiwes get off with just an 8 and a half year sentence? They made a 2 and a half hour video documenting everything they did!
So the controversy is this… Is it wrong to kill and eat another person if both parties are willing? They always say “you can’t rape the willing” so maybe this is just taking it one step further. Also, in 2001 cannibalism was not yet illegal in Germany!
Germany was quick to save face though. The prosecutors appealed the case stating that Meiwes should have been tried for murder rather than manslaughter. The conclusion of the retrial was a sentence of life imprisonment after being convicted of murder.
Armin Meiwes claims that there are around 800 cannibals in Germany. He supposedly shows remorse for what he has done and made an interesting decision to become a vegetarian once he was sent to prison.
Just remember, boys and girls, if you take a tour of someone’s house and they have slaughter house, don’t eat or drink anything you’re offered there.
