Gourds To Make Music and Cover Your Penis

This reminds me of those weird combinations we sometimes see….like laundry and tan, bait shop and pizza carry-out, tunafish and cigarettes, etc.

Musical gourds from Africa and India, such as drums, lutes and sitars have beautiful, polished finishes decorated with beads and carved designs.


But of all the uses for gourds, some of the most interesting are the “penis sheath gourds” worn by men of New Guinea. Penis gourds are also known from Africa and northern South America. There is considerable speculation among anthropologists about the purpose of such gourds, but most agree that they are more than a protective device and serve an important social function.
