POTW Fertility Festival


This Photo of the Week is for the upcoming Nagoya fertility festival, held at Tagata annually on 15th March. The festival promotes having babies and families, and it’s also a place where young single people can pray that they find a husband or wife in the coming year.  In a Catholic western tradition, all thought of sex is considered a sin, but oriental religions do not consider sex a problem, and so there is no shame or sense of sin associated in having such festivals. The public parading of a phallus is not a problem. Families bathe together, and everyone know what all the bits are, so there’s nothing to teeter about. So, without further ado, here’s a giant wooden cock.

For information can be found on Wikipedia, and a gallery of images at my PhotoShelter portfolio.

    I must show some thanks to you just for ruescing me from this type of instance. After scouting throughout the the net and obtaining ways which are not pleasant, I was thinking my entire life was over. Living minus the approaches to the problems you have solved through your good write-up is a critical case, as well as ones that would have negatively affected my entire career if I had not discovered your website. The expertise and kindness in handling the whole lot was excellent. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not discovered such a stuff like this. I can also at this point look forward to my future. Thanks very much for the professional and effective guide. I won’t think twice to suggest your blog post to anyone who should have counselling about this matter.
