Festival of the Steel Phallus

- serlingrod - Sunday, May 6th, 2007 : goo

[previous] :: [next]

The Kanamara Matsuri, also called Festival of the Steel Phallus, is an annual Shinto fertility festival held in Kawasaki, Japan each spring. The festival is centered around a local penis-venerating shrine, once popular among prostitutes who wished to pray for protection against sexually transmitted diseases. Today, the festival is used to raise money for HIV research. There's also a legend of a demon that hid inside a young girl and castrated two young men on their wedding nights before a blacksmith fashioned an iron phallus that was used to break the demon's teeth, leading to the enshrinement of the item.

I thing girls in China love boys penis or, fuck so that is why hey celebrate the day of penis. and also China's people does not belive on anything so they habe to belive on something every culture has belive on something eg. Hundu poeple belives on cow and something else.
I don't thing girls in china should celebrate this day cause it's a big shame out side China it's not a shame in china i know but it's shame in out side.

Nothing is wrong with those people, they just love dicks, especially unmarried girls. Kawasaki must be a cool place to visit and be served with a dish wet and warm!

ão aqueles com quem sentimos afinidades...Que nos despertam saudades
Que conhecem a nossa realidade!...Amigos do peito
São aqueles que se tornam especiais
Que se fazem essenciais..Nos calando quando necessitamos ouvir
Nos estimulando quando pensamos em desistir
Nos amparando quando achamos que vamos cair!
Amigos verdadeiros do peito
Que se sentem felizes com as nossas vitórias
Que caminham lado a lado na mesma direção
Sempre nos impulsionando
...Amigos do peito...
São amigos queridos,
Jamais esquecidos
Que mesmo quando ausentes...
...Eles se tornam presentes
Porque estão be
