Phallic Preoccupations

He discovered many objects that appear to be phallic symbols relating to sexually oriented rites – objects used perhaps for fertility, hunting, and agricultural goals. Later there were temples dedicated to phallic […]

Our ever-increasing exploration and knowledge will, we hope, one day produce a clearly delineated […]
