Your penis could be a star

We Want Your Penises

Masculinity

For an exhibition we are holding as part of our Festival. In defiance of porn culture, the aim is to share normal pictures of men’s members, to dispel anxiety and promote conversation. But there are rules!

Penis Gallery

The Penis Gallery is an exhibition we are running as part of our Festival of New Masculinity and we need your penis to star in it. Or your local penis. Any and all penises you have close to hand.

Penises are the classic male anxiety – is it big enough? Is it too big? Too wide? Too weird? Too bent? Just hideous? – but one which we rarely talk about, and with sexual dysfunction among young men on the rise, it seems the pornification of the world isn’t helping ease our fears. Put simply, not all dicks are rock hard, smooth 12 inch bats. But when do you ever see any other type? It’s not exactly a Done Thing to start examining other johnsons in the locker room is it? OK, maybe in rugby.

But the point is we need to start getting comfortable with our bodies and understand there is no right way to be. Gain confidence in yourself by acknowledging everyone is different. Hence, the Penis Gallery, where every penis is beautiful.

Please do send us your penis to put on show. Here are the rules:

  • Strictly no erections. Flaccid penises only. This isn’t Tinder.
  • No faces. The penises should be anonymous, and will be displayed as such.
  • Photos must be in black and white. Let’s keep it arty, ffs.
  • Dimensions – not of your penis, of the photo – should be Instagram shape.
  • Entries need to be in by Feb 25th. 

 

Send your pics to penis@thebookofman.com

 

You can buy tickets to the exhibition event here, at which photographer and storyteller Laura Dodsworth will be presenting some of her work from her ‘Bare Reality: Manhood’ book:
