Colombian poet selling testicles to fund trip to Europe

Friday, June 14, 2013

Colombian artist Raffael Medina Brochero is willing to part with his testicles in exchange for $20,000 that he needs to go tour through Europe while presenting "Poetry for Peace in Colombia."
The poet from the northern department of Magdalena told Colombian radio station Caracol he will give his balls to the first person to offer him the desired amount.

According to the poet, he made the decision after a bad experience on his 2012 – South America tour. Having traveled through various countries in the continent, Medina found himself broke in Bolivia — something he is trying to prevent while in Europe.

In defense of his extraordinary decision, Medina said that his life was endangered in La Paz, Bolivia; he broke the laws of five different countries on the continent and sold his wedding ring in Peru – everything in order to spread his poetry.
