Kinda maybe a bit NSFW but ironically someone showed me this site at work. Presented strictly to further historical knowledge, of course. Heck, the photographer is even on-staff at Nat Geo!

Something I heard from a professor of mine, long ago:
Greco-Roman statues were always sculpted in an anatomically correct fashion, and in many sculptures, especially of their gods, the males were sculpted in "rampant" position.  The male parts were actually sculpted separately and inserted into a slot . . . when the Vatican acquired many of these statues in the middle ages, they removed the "rampant" man parts and replaced them with fig leaves - but the marble penises were carefully cataloged and stored by Vatican staffers . . . who also happened to be nuns!

In Spike Milligan's war memoirs, he describes paying a visit to Pompeii and seeing a huge reproduction of a huge male organ, one of his buddies asked "What's that, then?" Spike then hung his hat on it.   Buggedout Buggedout

Looking at the last photo, obviously one size does not fit all.

I'd like to see the living models upon which these were based upon.

On second thought . . . no, I don't.

Please let this be true and not a prof being funny.
It's just too good! (Which is what the nuns thought.)

The Icelandic Phallological Museum is probably worth visiting.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
