The Icelandic Phallological Museum, located in Reykjavik, is an homage to everything penile. It houses the world’s largest collection of penises. Not just humans penises, mind you, but penises from more than 90 species of animals. There are large penises, small penises and even some sure to make any man feel inadequate.

 

Before visiting the museum I was unaware phallology was even a real science. Alas, it turns out there are plenty of people who spend their days studying the penis. After strolling through the exhibits I have to admit it is quite the fascinating subject. The most awe-inspiring specimens obviously came from the 56 displays pulled from whales. The polar bear also had nothing to be ashamed of in that department. In addition to the impressive display of phalluses, the museum also features artwork depicting, you guessed it, the male form in all it’s elongated glory. You’ll find paintings, sculptures and even lampshades made from bull balls.

 

The Icelandic Phallological Museum is an odd, yet strangely interesting, peek into every man’s pride and joy and certainly worth a stop if you’re in town. Nothing in the museum is particularly sexual in nature, so it’s even safe for the family depending on your comfort levels.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.

Snowshoeing Mont-Tremblant

If you are traveling to a world-class ski resort, I am willing to bet snowshoeing is not the first activity you have in mind. When faced with the prospect of carving up a mountain on skis or trudging through the snow, most will choose skis.
