The actual festival is called Honen Matsuri. Celebrated every March 15 in Komaki, a town about 45 minutes north of Nagoya, Japan. This is the time of year where folks haul out a large wooden penis to give three cheers to fertility and renewal.  The custom is an old one that is connected to bringing about a good harvest and having babies.  I have nothing against a giant penis.  I love a giant penis. But I love my lady parts, too. Breasts and vagina alike. I mean, come on?!? Where's the veeeej love?
