Soggy biscuit (also known as ookie cookie, limp biscuit, wet biscuit, shoot the cookie, or cum on a cookie) is a male masturbation game reportedly played by British school children where the participants stand around a biscuit masturbating until ejaculating onto it; the last person to do so must eat the biscuit. The game is also known in Australia as soggy Sao after the SAO brand of biscuits popular there.
Although "soggy biscuit" is not necessarily associated with homosexuality, since the game does not require mutual masturbation or other contact, the idea and practice of the game is in keeping with the spirit of adolescent sexual exploration associated by many in the UK with public schools (UK) or private schools (Australia). Although the terminology may differ slightly, the notability of the game is such that variations on the theme are referred to in popular culture, examples including Stephen Fry's The Liar, the German film Crazy, the 2006 film Sleeping Dogs Lie, the episode of Blackadder II, "Chains" and the episode of Drawn Together, "Freaks and Greeks".
According to the book Law of the Playground, 1,866 men were asked: "How close have you got to the game of Soggy Biscuit, in which you race to wank onto a cracker?" Of the respondents, 6.2% reportedly admitted to having played the game.
In November 2011, The Eagle-Tribune reported that police were investigating claims that two Andover High School basketball players were hazed by older team members into playing the game. In January 2012, it was reported that two students were expelled over the incident and a further five were suspended. A grand jury was convened to determine if any of the students should be charged criminally.
