  1. Wow, now that’s sexy. I’d love to see pix of this being worn. Yum yum.

  2. That is seriously cool. I wish we had something for size comparison. It seems a little large for “active” use.

  3. I’m curious as to the purpose of the wooden cover. I know that some tribes use penis sheaths for the sake of modesty (I think Indonesian tribes?); is this for the same function, or is purely decorative? I’d love to know more about the history and traditions associated with this style of genital covering.

  4. now my little guys helmet has a helmet… priceless… also reminds me of the King Missle song, Detachable Penis… pure greatness

  5. If anyone is interested you can sometimes find these pieces of traditional ampallang jewelery from Borneo on Ebay. They are most likely carved from tropical hardwoods. Very cool stuff!
