Every Friday we publish a fantasy about a certain topic. This story comes from Maya



I saw a French movie a while back, called Raw. It’s about a vegetarian girl who has to eat an animal’s kidneys during her hazing week. Her sister, who is on the hazing committee, forces her to do so. At first she is sickened by it, but then she suddenly starts eating raw pieces of chicken that she finds in her fridge. 

In the film, this comes to symbolize a kind of carnal lust.

At a certain point the girl finds out that her sister also feels this lust and from there it totally escalates. I found that film so fascinating—how it translated that feeling of lust so literally. I was so impressed by the film that now, when I fantasize, I see those images.


 After seeing that film, by the way, I saw another movie about cannibalism, The Cannibal Club. I had never thought about cannibalism before seeing those films, but I find it incredibly intriguing that you can feel such lust for a body.

It’s not like I’d want to do stuff like that in real life though. Interestingly, I’m vegetarian. I don’t eat meat at all. But when I fantasize, I build my fantasies on those movies and that feeling of lust. I do bite my boyfriend very often, on his hand or on his neck, but in a playful way, because I love him. It does feel as if that adds a little bit of lust to our love. Fortunately my boyfriend doesn’t mind.

About Yes Please!


All fantasies are literal transcriptions from real-life interviews. The “Yes Please!” project was initiated by Dutch researchers and authors Lucas De Man and Mariëlle de Goede. Inspired by the famous writer Nancy Friday, the Two set out to discover what people fantasize about today. They took a little caravan and converted into a recording study and stationed it at festivals, conferences, and other large gatherings to interview people from all walks of life. The result is the largest study of sexual fantasies in the Netherlands and Belgium, brought to you by a liberating book under the same name (currently only available in Dutch).
