Top 10 Public Penises of the South
It has all of that, but it also has top research universities, a world renowned opera company, three gay meccas (Atlanta, Fort Lauderdale, Miami), some gay-friendly resorts, the best Chinese food I've ever had, and lots of beefcake.
It's hot, so guys take their shirts off a lot.
Here are the top 10 public penises of the South:
3. I've been to Kentucky several times to visit my mother's kinfolk, but I didn't know that there was a 30-foot tall fiberglass replica of Michelangelo's David, penis and all, in downtown Louisville (on the corner of Main and 7th). Of course, it has some residents in an uproar, yelling "Think of the children!"
It wasn't there when I spent a semester in Nashville; it was unveiled in 2003, the controversial work of sculptor Alan LeQuire.
6. Memphis, Tennessee is named after the ancient Egyptian city, so there's a 25-foot fiberglass replica of the famous statue of Ramses II on the campus of the University of Memphis (on Central Avenue).
More after the break
a lot of cruising.
7. Birmingham is an island of (relative) sophistication in the heart of red-state Alabama. It has an opera company, a nice used bookstore, and a very good Chinese restaurant, Mr. Chen's. Also this 56-foot tall statue of Vulcan, the smith of the gods, to symbolize the city's iron-mine origins (in the Vulcan Park, on Red Mountain). He's got a semi-bare chest and a bare butt.
I only made it as far as New Orleans. The whole Southeast, is left, from Virginia to Georgia to the Carolinas to Florida.
