Semen Not Compostable in San Francisco
Regardless of what awaited behind the green door, sexual fluids are unwelcome within the green bin, according to the city's Department of the Environment.
In fact, says department spokesman Mark Westlund, the only bodily fluid you can compost in this city is snot. Bloody tissues? Throw 'em away; there's the specter of pathogen pollution. Bloody feminine products are doubly unwanted -- they're often made with composites that just don't break down.

Also, cigarettes and cigars -- whether post-coital or not -- are compostable. The filter portion of a cigarette, however, is not. And "We don't want any hot items going in there, really," notes Westlund.
No, that would not be sexy.
