    Why Arenít Classical Statues Very Well-Endowed?

    The more you know...

    http://mentalfloss.com/article/79897...y-well-endowed

    Iím not the only one whoís wondered at the ancient penis sizes depicted in art. Even while assuming that most statues feature flaccid penises, why wouldnít classic sculptors have made their subjects more well-endowed? Surely nude sculpture is as subject to exaggeration on this topic as locker room talk.

    As much trouble as they have with pigeons worldwide... can you imagine what would be perched upon an enhanced sculpture?

    "Growing" is more exotic and artistic than "Showing"
    I could be mistaken. Maybe it was another bald-headed jigsaw-puzzle-tattooed naked guy I saw.
