Phallic Symbols of the World – Fertility Shrine at Bangkok Hotel, Thailand

Phallic Symbols WTF!

Today I have a bizarre photo series from Megan at The Big Fat World showing some Phallic Symbols at a Fertility Shrine. You can follow @thebigfatworld on Twitter and say hello when you are online.

Megan contacted me in regarding a guest post to feature a funny travel photo, and I wasn’t disappointed! I had a good chuckle when she sent me a series of her offbeat travel photos.

Anyway, check it out! It’s a bit out there!

Phallic Symbols Of The World

Megan says ‘attached are 4 photos I took at a fertility shrine in Bangkok. This place was not on any maps I could find and was oddly enough behind a hotel tucked in the corner of the property and about the size of a New York City apartment. I was the only Westerner there and the hotel staff was nearby taking smoke breaks looking at me with curiosity and boredom. It was the 2nd such fertility shrine I had seen in Thailand, the 1st being on a island near Phuket.’

Wow! Not sure why this place was constructed, but I’m sure there is some bizarre reason!

The Phallic Symbol and Fertility Shrine Photo Collection..

Here they are! Just wondering, where is the factory where all of these bizarre sculptures come from? I wonder what their phallic symbol daily output would be?

Fertility Shrine

This wasn’t a field of magic mushrooms, was it? I think I’m hallucinating!

Fertility Statue

This is just bizarre! This looks like a whole family of phalluses having a nice picnic in the garden!

I’m keen to check this place out myself whenever I get the chance to go to Thailand. Looks like the place offers up a lot of cool offbeat travel opportunities.

      Not sure why you would want to buy souvenirs – imagine taking these through an airport scanner?
