This story about a Nutella-covered d**k is grossing out the entire internet
You’ll never look at Nutella the same way again.
BuzzFeed is known for publishing articles that generate lots of clicks. And some of these articles are NSFW. Everyone knows what to expect from BuzzFeed, but even those who follow the media company’s main Twitter account probably didn’t expect to see a graphic description of a sex story on their timelines Tuesday morning, complete with two accompanying photos of couples doing it.
If you’re on Twitter a lot, you probably already know which tweet we’re talking about. But if you haven’t seen it, here it is. (Sorry in advance.)
— BuzzFeed (@BuzzFeed) November 21, 2017
The article was actually published a couple of days ago, but no one seemed to notice it until BuzzFeed sent out this tweet with the aggressive headline: “17 sex stories that are so fucking hot, you’ll probably masturbate to them.” The article, which we don’t recommend clicking on, is a curated list of personal sex stories that were pulled from BuzzFeed forums. And, yes, one of them involves a Nutella-covered dick. It doesn’t appear that these stories were checked for accuracy, so who knows which ones are true (if any).
It was clear that many people who saw the tweet definitely did not want to see it.

Others seemed happy that BuzzFeed was creating erotica content.
BuzzFeed has pivoted to erotic fanfiction and folks, I couldn't be happier. https://t.co/EeZoAmyzbT

But the tweet didn’t appear to turn people on. In fact, it had quite the opposite effect.
i believe this is a purposeful strategy to promote sex negativity https://t.co/E0defohdox

Safe to say, we’ll all be staying celibate today.
