Iceland's Penis Museum Gets First Human Specimen

The Phallological Museum in Husavik, Iceland received a new donation this week to add to its vast collection (a 67-inch sperm whale penis, lampshades made from bull testicles, an "unusually big" penis bone from a Canadian walrus, etc.): Its first human penis. Pall Arason—who died in January at the age of 95—wanted his penis preserved for posterity, and last week his contribution, which is now suspended in formaldehyde, was officially installed in a ceremony, and will be the museum's main attraction.

"I have just been waiting for this guy for 15 years," said museum director Sigurdur Hjartarson. Of Arason, he said, "He liked to be in the limelight, you know? He was a funny guy. He was a boaster, a braggart…he liked to be provocative." However, Hjartarson would not share with the press the size of Arason's donation, saying that people would have to come see for themselves.
