People Celebrate Festival of the Steel Phallus In Japan
KAWASAKI, JAPAN - APRIL 06: People pose for photos in front of a large pink phallic-shaped 'Mikoshi' during Kanamara Matsuri (Festival of the Steel Phallus) on April 6, 2014 in Kawasaki, Japan. The Kanamara Festival is held annually on the first Sunday of April. The penis is the central theme of the festival, focused at the local penis-venerating shrine which was once frequented by prostitutes who came to pray for business prosperity and protection against sexually transmitted diseases. Today the festival has become a popular tourist attraction and is used to raise money for HIV awareness and research. (Photo by Chris McGrath/Getty Images)
