    So will this event be followed up by the Penis Project next month ? A similar event could have the same discussions, workshops, art, interpretive dancing, and related topics regarding issues relating to the penis. I will be looking forward to an event to equal the time and energy spent on the Vagina Project. Oh wait, that would never happen. It would be just too bizarre of an event to be held in St George even though we have reached “University Status”
