The Icelandic Phallological Museum

I thought being in this highly specialized museum would feel super awkward, but it wasn’t really. At least not until a group of ladies started to (over)share their first sexual experiences for everyone to hear. Of course they had to congregate right by the only human penis specimen in this museum, which unfortunately looked really sad and shriveled.

The video is a trailer for a documentary about the, uh, phallologist’s search for a human penis for the museum collection (likely that sad specimen we saw). I think the museum shown in the video is the one at the old location in Husavik, which is now home to The Exploration Museum. The current location is in Reykjavik, in the less busy part of Reykjavik’s busiest and most touristy street, Laugavegur.

You should consider a visit to the museum if you ever find yourself in Reykjavik. If anything, it makes for a good travel story. While you’re there, be sure to check out the elf’s penis (magically invisible), merman’s penis (kind of looks like a badly-painted piece of styrofoam) and the ghost penis (surprisingly big and visible). The whale penis collection is pretty interesting, too.
