  1. Phallus

    A phallus is an erect penis, a penis-shaped object, or a mimetic image of an erect penis. Any object that symbolically resembles a penis may also be referred to as a phallus; however, such objects are more often referred to as being phallic. Such symbols often represent the fertility and cultural implications that are associated with the male sexual organ, as well as the male orgasm.
