Phallological (Penis) Museum, Reykjavik, Iceland

in funny •  27 days ago

I had heard about an attraction in Reykjavik, but thought it was a load of balls! I had to go and see it for myself. So at the end of my Iceland trip, with just a few hours left in Reykjavik, headed off to the Phallological Museum. Come with me on my adventure!

The penis museum is not for pussies!

Did I find it? Yes, it wasn't hard. When I arrived, took a firm grip of the handle and slipped slowly into the front entrance.

The Phallological Museum is better known as the Penis Museum. Set up by Sigurður Hjartarson, it houses more than 215 penises and penal parts. He came up with the idea for a museum after receiving penises from his friends as a joke.

Being one of the first, of course, there were no hard and fast rules of how to set up a penis museum - it's not like there have been mass-debates before or anything.

If you look hard enough, there are many differences in the penises

The museum website reads "Now, thanks to The Icelandic Phallological Museum, it is finally possible for individuals to undertake serious study into the field of phallology in an organized, scientific fashion"

So, with this in mind, I went in there with the intention of being all serious. You know... taking in information and being all 'grown-up' about it, but when faced with a room full of willies and associated paraphernalia, the innuendos were coming... thick and fast!.

Trying to gain my focus, I stood erect and attempted to control my urges, it's no laughing matter. I noticed that the penises seemed to start off small. The more interest I paid, taking a long, hard look at them, the larger they became.

Couldn't see the wood for the trees in this forest of penises

Not only is there an array of penises on display, ranging from whales to mice, there are also items I found really hard to grasp! I mean, who knew that you could make a light shade from a scrotum?
Purchasing something like that could certainly stimulate a deep and well-rounded conversation piece in your home. If we let go of our inhibitions, with our imaginations aroused, what else could come if we only caressed our thoughts!?

There were even penis-themed toilets! The best thing was, they didn't form part of a display, anyone can take a quick wizz in there if needed. Just remember to tug the handle and clean up after yourself, you know, leave the area as you would like to find it.

Anyone need a quick wizz?

As I walked around the displays, I could feel the climax was coming. Then there it was. The 5ft whale penis. I could describe the ins and outs of all the displays, but sometimes it's better to do these things yourself.

Straight up, this was my favorite display

By the end, the exhibition had penetrated something deep within but was over all too quickly. However, it was extremely satisfying and I had an incredibly pleasurable experience.

I found this one to be very interesting, I didn't see that coming!

I do have some advice if you are thinking of visiting. I suggest taking it as it comes and try not to blow all your money in the souvenir shop.

Thanks for reading.
