PENIS FESTIVAL 2907.jpg

Participants carry a gigantic 2.5 meter pink phallus on their shoulders during the Kanamara Festival in Kawasaki, Japan. Kanamara means metal phallus, so named after a story dating back hundreds of years in which a local blacksmith made an iron phallus to protect a girl who was thought to be curse. Today, the festival participants are largely prostitutes STDs.
