14 Weird Places Around The World Where Penis Is God

The male human genitalia is a thing of great curiosity and interest. And I am not just talking about Mia Khalifa. There are many cultures from around the world who think the phallus indeed holds a great importance, so much that they have made it a point to worship it! Now it may sound weird if I ask you to go visit these places, but just in case you find Jim Morrison asking you about your will to be weird, and decide to be a little bit of it some time, here are a few places that would spin your head with their penis rituals.

1. Kanamara Matsuri - Kawasaki, Japan

1. Kanamara Matsuri — Kawasaki, Japan

On the first Sunday of every April, the Japanese celebrate the Kanamara Matsuri which roughly translates to Festival of the Steel Phallus. This festival is supposed to encourage fertility and marital bliss in between married couples. Iron Man, is that yours?

2. The penis temple, Bangkok

2. The penis temple, Bangkok

This can roughly be called the ethnic sexual treatment for infertility in Bangkok. This is a shrine which worships Chao Mae Tubtim which happens to be a spirit of female fertility. Wooden dildos are in plenty here and women come and worship at the place so that they may be blessed with children. They also take back wooden dildos if their wishes are fulfilled. Not just the morning wood for them anymore, eh?

3. Jeju Loveland - Jeju Island, South Korea

3. Jeju Loveland - Jeju Island, South Korea

This is South Korea's own way of saying "Kamasutra." The place was built to teach newlyweds the amorous ways of relishing each others' bodies. Other words, the place is about teaching people something outside the missionary style. 

4. Bhutan Phallic Murals - Thimpu Bhutan

4. Bhutan Phallic Murals - Thimpu Bhutan

Bhutan's folks think that the phallus is not just about fertility, but it also guards you against evil spirits and for the same reason, they have built their faiths around it and have these Phallic Murals out of the respect for it. Suddenly I am not scared of the monsters under my bed now. 

5. The Kharkhorin Rock - Erdene Zoo Monastery, Mongolia

5. The Kharkhorin Rock - Erdene Zoo Monastery, Mongolia

This rock was made in order to prevent the monks from going astray from their vows of celibacy. Ironically, it is now worshipped as a symbol of fertility. That escalated quickly. 

6. Khajuraho Group of Monuments - Madhya Pradesh, India

6. Khajuraho Group of Monuments — Madhya Pradesh, India

This is one of those temples in India where you would find statues of people engaged in all kinds of sexual acts. This temple built in between 950-1050 AD has these carvings because, in those times, the temples also taught about bodily desires apart from other spiritual education. 

7. Hōnen Matsuri - Komaki, Japan

7. Hōnen Matsuri — Komaki, Japan

Just like the other phallus fest in Japan, this one is celebrated on March 15 to promote fertility. I love Japan. 

8. The Cerne Abbas Giant - Dorset, England

8. The Cerne Abbas Giant — Dorset, England

This is in England which should itself be a lesson that even the most educated and sophisticated people follow myths when it comes to sexual fertility. This chalk illustration of an erect Pagan warrior is supposed to have magical powers and having intercourse on the top of his erection is supposed to heal infertility. 

9. Tyrnavos, Greece

9. Tyrnavos, Greece

This festival is at least one hundred years old and is all about teasing each other in public using fake penises. 

10. Museum of Sex, NYC. 

10. Museum of Sex, NYC. 

New York city is the best city in the world for many reasons. This might as well be one. The museum opened in 2002 and aims at educating people about the evolution of sexuality and the intercourse. The place is crowded almost all the time. 

11. Phra Nang Cave - Krabi Province, Thailand

11. Phra Nang Cave — Krabi Province, Thailand

The local people here believe that placing a penis shaped statue in this place will ensure a safe sail for the sailors on the open sea. This is supposedly done to appease the spirit of Phra Naga. 

12. Khalid Nabi Cemetery - Golestan province, Iran

12. Khalid Nabi Cemetery — Golestan province, Iran

This is a burial ground in Northeast with rather odd-shaped head-stones. Almost 600 of these stones are in the shapes of the penis or the breasts. 

13. Mara Kannon Fertility Shrine - Tawarayama, Japan

13. Mara Kannon Fertility Shrine — Tawarayama, Japan

This is a popular destination for couples to seek fertility blessings. This shrine was built in 1551 in the memory of a ruler's murdered son. Renly Baratheon? 

14. Haesindang Park - Sinnam, South Korea

14. Haesindang Park — Sinnam, South Korea

The people of Sinnam built this place and the contents in it of course, in the memory of a young woman who died. There really must be heaven after all.
