The Only Important Reason To Visit Iceland

People will tell you many reasons why you should visit this Nordic dreamland: the Northern Lights, geothermal baths, whales, or national parks. All of these are great... if you're basic as fuck. The real money is far from it all. It lies in one incredible science museum.

Penises have their own field of study.

Their website defines Phallology as "an ancient science which, until recent years, has received very little attention in Iceland, except as a borderline field of study in other academic disciplines such as history, art, psychology, literature and other artistic fields like music and ballet. Now, thanks to The Icelandic Phallological Museum, it is finally possible for individuals to undertake serious study into the field of phallology in an organized, scientific fashion."

The museum is so incredible there was a Canadian documentary made about it called "The Final Member".


I was going to make a penis pun but I didn't have to because the good people of Canada took care of that for me. "The Final Member" documented the museum's quest to find a human penis for their exhibit. In July 2011, the museum finally gained their first human penis, one of four promised penis donations. Talk about an organ donor, am I right? Google defines the film as a "Drama/Comedy".


"Visitors to the museum will encounter fifty six specimens belonging to seventeen different kinds of whale, one specimen taken from a rogue polar bear, thirty-six specimens belonging to seven different kinds of seal and walrus, and one hundred and fifteen specimens originating from twenty different kinds of land mammal: all in all, a total of two hundred and nine specimens belonging to forty six different kinds of mammal."

The only thing that could possibly be greater than a penis museum is the Phallus Sotore, or the museum gift shop.

The store is home to wide range of things starting from "designer condoms" to "willy warmers". The store also provides shot glasses, hats with the museum logo, a "It's all about dicks" fridge magnet, king sized penis pasta, and my personal favorite, salt and pepper penises.
