The Sperm Altar

On the bedroom windowsill is a little arrangement I’ve affectionately dubbed “the sperm altar.”

It consists of:

– all the vials of frozen spermies we’ve used up

– a candle to St. Expeditus, the patron saint of both procrastinators and of things getting done quickly (hello, fave saint ever)

– set on top of some version of the Virgin, the one associated with babymaking

– a Peruvian fertility fetish

– atop a koi temporary tattoo (internet freebie why not)

– a candle to the Virgin of Charity, for good measure

And we insperminate to specifically chosen music. Not religious, just superstitious.
