The Japanese Penis Festival!

Everybody knows that Japan is famous for many unusual habits, festivities, and celebrations. This is why the fact that they recently celebrated the Penis is not something that shocks people, is it?

The streets of Kawasaki in Japan were full of people who were eager to have some fun while commemorating the penis. OK, you have to admit that this is something not many people can take serious, right? However, Japan’s Phallus festival is real and it’s far from being a joke.

The penis festival is 39 years old and it has its roots in the 17th century. Now, the festival stands for fertility, raising awareness about safe sex, as well as trying to find donors interested in supporting HIV prevention. However, it is based on the tale of a sharp-toothed demon that fell in love with a beautiful woman.

The Legend of the Penis

In accordance with the legend, everything happened in the Edo Period, which was between the years 1603 and 1868. They say that a sharp-toothed demon that was living in a lady’s vagina castrated a couple of men. The demon’s teeth were broken with an iron dildo. This is why an important part of this festival is represented by an immense Iron Dildo.

A major part of the Penis Festival is visiting the huge Iron Dildo that sits in the Kanayama Shrine, in Kawasaki. The huge phallus seems to signify fertility, protection from diseases, as well as childbirth. This is why many sex workers come in pilgrimage, searching for divine protection.

I know this sounds surreal, even for Japan, but it is as real as you and I. Well, the legend is just a story, but the festival is happening every year.

Size Matters…in Japan

Since this festival brings so many giant phalluses, we can say that in Japan, size matters, right? Well, there are so many jokes about this, but “the size in Japan” subject is for another time. Now, the festival is not only about huge penises, but also the thousands of people who come to Kawasaki celebrate them.

In addition, the festival is also about the souvenirs. So, people who celebrate the phallus in Japan, don’t leave without buying key chains, chocolates and other funny objects that have the form of a penis.

And if you think that sex workers or regular adults are the only people who celebrate the phalluses, you are wrong. Nobody misses the festivities. So, among the people who party on the streets of Kawasaki, you can find children and also old people. What’s wrong with a grandmother who sucks on a penis lollipop?

Celebrating Your Own Penis

Now, I am sure that if you were in Japan, all of you would be curious to see the streets of Kawasaki filled with penises and people who celebrate them, right?

However, if you are living far from this country, flying just for this festival is quite difficult. But this doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate your own penis. And there’s no better way to do that then with a sexy courtesan, right? So, you better check out the call girls available on Escort Norway and choose the one you want to celebrate your phallus with!

One thought on “The Japanese Penis Festival!”

  1. The Japanese always seem to pixelate the sex ion their movies.
    I wonder how the festival will work? If they are not showing sex, then it will be fine. It would be interesting to see how many turn up to the festival.
