A phallic symbol is any object that resembles a man’s genitals (if you didn't already know). Well, basically, a penis (but you got that). Normally a phallus is created from stone, wood, or any object to show power. Sometimes it is by coincidence, other times they are created for that very reason: to demonstrate authority. Then, there are times when one is generated merely by accident and some of us turn into young teenagers again as we giggle about the silly picture or statue that looks just like a man’s private parts. These pictures were found throughout the internet, and they just go to show how important it is to have a sense of humor about such things.

9 The Kamasutra Bed
For anyone who is unaware of what this is, the Kamasutra is an ancient book written by the Hindus hundreds of years ago. The book is dedicated to sex and different positions that are related to it. This picture is a photograph that was presumably intended to pay homage to the ancient text. This work was not written entirely about different positions, it was actually meant to help couples out in bettering their relationships, but that is predominantly what people remember about it.

5 Welsh Mountain Snow Phallus
The Clwydian Range is a series of hills and mountains that appear in the northern part of Wales in the United Kingdom. It is lined with beautiful trees; but someone thought that it wasn’t attracting quite enough attention, so they decided to carve a giant penis onto the side of the mountain range. Most people did not realize that it was there until it snowed, which settled into the heather, and now it is noticeable by (just about) everyone who drives by it or flies above Llandegla mountain. Current residents are happy now that the city is “on the map.”

1 The Washington Monument
An obelisk is probably the most prominent phallic symbol in the world. Even though many other countries are known for their statues, the Washington Monument is most likely the most recognized. It was created in the late 1800s in Washington, D.C. to honor the first president of the United States, George Washington. The 554 foot statue is made of granite, marble and previous sedimentary rocks, and it is the tallest one in the world.
If the Washington Monument was erected to honor the first male commander of the United States, one can only wonder what will be created to commemorate the first female president?
