The Kanamara Matsuri or “The Penis Worship”, devotees carry a variety of large sculptures in the shape of a penis and paraded through the streets of Kawasaki in Japan.

According to Japanese folklore, a demoness with vaginal deadly teeth seduced men to their deaths until temple priests used a metal d**k to destroy her deadly secret weapon. It is said that the shrine offers divine protections for business prosperity and for a good and happy life.

This festival has become a tourist attraction and the money raised here is used for HIV research.
