Brazilian woman laced vagina with poison to kill husband

'Cunning cunnilingus' ploy almost kills man after wife admits she put lethal toxin in her private parts

LAST UPDATED AT 11:27 ON Thu 31 Jan 2013

A BRAZILIAN woman has confessed to trying to kill her husband by putting poison in her vagina and urging him to have oral sex with her, a news agency claims.

The bizarre murder plot, dubbed "cunning cunnilingus" by one commentator, took place in the city of Sao de Jose Rio Preto.

The intended victim, a 43-year-old man who has not been named, says his wife tried to lure him into bed and encouraged him to perform oral sex on her. His suspicions were aroused when he noticed an unusual odour emanating from her private parts and, fearing she was unwell, took her to hospital, Brazil's Tvi24 reports. Medical tests revealed she had doused her vagina with enough of the unspecified toxin to kill both her husband and herself.

Confronted with the test results the woman reportedly confessed to her crime. It is believed she hatched the bizarre plot after asking her husband for a divorce, a request he now seems rather more likely to acquiesce to. Tvi24 says the woman has received medical treatment and sources claim her husband plans to sue her for attempted murder.

Vagina homicide is, needless to say, a highly unusual crime and a local police officer called Walter Coacino Junior has reportedly ordered "further investigation" due to the "nature" of the case. The woman may still face murder charges, he said.

The Jezebel website points out that "poisoning someone through your vagina is not that good of an idea" because "your vagina is fairly absorbent and shoving a bunch of poison in it will probably hurt you as much as it hurts the person you're trying to kill."

But Salon's Katie McDonough says the fact the man rushed his wife to hospital despite her death-by-vagina plotting suggests "chivalry is not dead". ·

Interesting variation on the ancient Freudian phobia of vagina dentata. And the Algerian women's disincentive to rape by French troops during the struggle for independence.

That's "old news". This poisoning attempt happen almost two years ago (as anyone can easily verify on the TVI's website - TVI is the name of a TV channel from Portugal, not Brazil, by the way).

That's right, love her to death....

it is mainly bad, because it is bad for the woman herself. Otherwise.... That´s an interesting argument!

A rather 'cunning stunt'.

As long in the tooth as Vagina Dentata!

This would have made a good Inspector Lewis mystery "The Toxic Twat"

Now Hillary, stop tryin to punish Billy would ya! He is the first black president don't ya know! Then again you are Hillary CLinton, so I'm not exactly sure how hard they'd slap your wrist!
