The annual Hounen Penis Fertility Festival was held at Tagata Shrine in Komaka, central Japan, on March 15--and I wasn't there. When my pal Captain Hugh Hunte sent me a news story on it, I said: Damn, I should have been there! This is going into my calendar for next year.
An ancient Shinto custom, the Penis Festival celebrates spring and renewal. What better way to celebrate all that than by admiring banners of beautiful erect cocks and taking home a little wooden model purchased from the shrine gift shop? Supposedly, touching a penis sculpture at the shrine brings luck for the coming year.
I have often found luck in touching a penis myself. What about you?
I'm told that New Zealand also has a National Penis Day, September 4th. Have I missed any other international festivals of the cock?
