Cerne Abbas Giant...aka The Giant Penis Man
The other night the DH and I were surfing through popular shows on Hulu, when we came across Kim Cattrell's Sexual Intelligence. Never one to pass up on an opportunity to learn about the human body, I selected it (alas, I did not finish it...got too tired). I was pleasantly surprised when she stood on the 8-foot-long phallus of this giant--how in all of mankind had I missed this??? Have you heard of it?
It is a monument in England, seriously!!
According to the National Trust site, the figure is believed to be Hercules carrying a club...and wearing one too it seems, lol.
The fact of the matter is--in Dorset England, there is a huge chalk figure with a thoroughly engorged penis, and I have just added it to my list of things I must see!
If you care to visit the site, here's a link.
