Michelle’s bandmate and friend (Rio) went to India recently with her fiancé (the ‘Ju) to get married in the midst of his family. And motherland. While there, they picked up gifts for many of their friends back home. I received this:

It’s a fertility symbol. A phallic one*. One that’s revered and worshipped in temples all over India.

While many people might not appreciate getting a miniature penis penetrating a vagina, I do. My friends and I often give each other gifts of questionable inappropriateness. And I think an Indian religious symbol trumps gay porn anytime.

* The Wikipedia reference for “lingam” skirts the phallic nature of the icon. And is generally less fun.

  1. A miniature penis penetrating a vagina?  Is that what that is?

    I confess I don’t see it.  It looks like Aladdin’s lamp to me.

  2. The penis is going THROUGH the vagina. That’s what I think is happening.
