Phallic Shrines in Thailand

One of the charming things about Thailand, and much of Asia for that matter, is that they’re much less hung up on depictions of the male member. In fact, some religions even venerate a crude representation of the male phallus. I imagine many of you have worshiped at that altar, haven’t you? In Thailand, phallic charms and wood carvings are popular. They serve many purposes, such as ‘protecting’ a guy’s real manhood from attack by evil spirits, or to simply encourage, err, propagation.
