Our world if full of wonders and one of them is found in the East. It is a Japanese penis festival. What people eat or do during this celebration is rather shocking.
It dates back to the 15th century. As you may know, in Japan they greatly respect the ancestors and fertility. So, they celebrated fertility and sex and massive part in the party took the prostitutes. These ladies were afraid of STDs, so they used their bodies to please the men and pray to gods for protection. Quite a unique offer, but rather common in the heathen world.
Women had no way of protection of sexually transmitted diseases. There was no cure for them back at that time. Some women would go to a blacksmith. They wanted the man to make them a metal dildo. They used it to “cast out” black demons from their bodies. And since that time Japanese started to celebrate the penis festival.
In our age gay community has joined it and takes an active part in promoting their way of “love”. People go out on the streets. Some of them wear national clothes called kimono. They dance and eat. The treats are rather unusual.
They buy penis shaped ice-cream, eat chocolate penises. They also wear clothes with this symbol or buy little souvenirs in phallic shape. Both men and women enjoy themselves. And during this day both genders wear female dresses.
People parade the streets carrying huge shapes of penises. Plus the men climb the pose formed accordingly. The one who climbs the tallest penis wins. As you see, Japanese certainly are having fun during the penis festival. However, many tourists find it odd and shameful.
