Japanese Penis Festival Celebrates The Ween

For those of you who missed it, the annual “Japanese Penis Festival” was held to honor and celebrate the male sex organ, with massive replicas of giant dongs paraded down the streets of Kawasaki.

The Shinto Kanamara Matsuri, or “Festival of the Steel Phallus,” is held every spring at the Kanayama Shrine in Kawasaki, Japan. Humongous sculptures of manhood are carried down the street as people watch the parade while eating penis shaped chocolate lollipops, taking selfies of themselves with willies in their mouths.

Legend has it that the schlong-a-thong had its roots in the Edo Period (1603-1868) when a sharp-toothed demon somehow got into a woman’s vagina (vagina dentata) and castrated two unlucky young dudes on their wedding nights. (Only a man intimidated by women would come up with such a story.)

Their brides went to a local blacksmith who came to the rescue by making an iron dildo to break the demon’s teeth. The shrine was then “erected” to honor the Shinto deities of fertility and childbirth. It was also a place where prostitutes went to pray to seek protection from sexually transmitted infections. It became a tourist attraction in 1970.

The festival started in 1977 and gets bigger and bigger, like an erect penis, every year. Today the festival is used to raise money for HIV research and draws a big LGBT crowd.
