When you think you have seen everything.

These nice people are very religious...they just happen to believe in things which are not invisible. Like esss eeee exxxx. In fact, every year, since the year dot, the people in Kawasaki Japan have held their phallic festival....to encourage the gods to allow their women to be fecund, their men to be libidinous, and the STD's to be absent. It might work...after all, Japan is known to be one of the most densly populated nations in the world.

Now lets get serious folks...this is a "relgious ceremony". Click on the images to enlarge.

Or maybe just rub the mouse gently....



Come on lady...the old guy is all excited by your playing with his church equipment!!



Bringing in the Sheaves....bringing in the sheaves. Wait a minute...those ain't sheaves!


Hmm....I think I have anvil lust.

That's awesome!! Of course the oldest cultures in the world have celebrated fertility as part of their spiritual beliefs. But I don't know that many of them constructed giant penises as part of the festivities.

The ancient romans used to do this as well, particularly at weddings.

Giant penises and vulvas would grace the wedding reception.

I dunno...sex is a pretty powerful motivational force. This sect probably controls sex as well as any....

Assuming it needs to be controlled. But then we are getting into theology.

You can tell I am a blacksmith...I was looking at the last picture for about a minute before I saw anything other than the anvil. Then the imagery started....grin!
