Or at least, that’s what the owner of the museum claims. Then again, he’s also previously claimed that simply viewing the penis can cure men of impotency, when frankly we think it’s more likely to put them off sex for quite some time.
This is the somewhat disturbing prize specimen in Russia’s first ever museum of sex and erotica – the preserved 12inch penis of legendary lover and mystic Grigori Rasputin.
The erotica exhibition in St. Petersburg hosts a variety of sculptures and paintings – but the main attraction is the alleged 30 centimetre penis, preserved in a jar, looking unsettlingly like a Graboid from the film Tremors.
This is not the first time that people have claimed to be in posession of Rasputin’s severed member, which has reared its implausible head many times over the decades since his murder in 1916. No putative penis has ever been proven to be Rasputin’s, however.
