NYC Parks Public Statement on erections


We copy here below the authentic text just published by the NYC Parks authority (we would add “if any” at the end, it seems more appropriate).

“NYC Parks stands firmly against any unpermitted erection in city parks, no matter how small.”

We receive an interesting update we can not avoid to publish:

ancient statues portraying important people in town were always showing genitals with limited size, on the contrary satyrs were always shown with more than nature size of genitals. It seems that the reason has to be found in the beauty canons prevailing in different ages. In ancient Greece large genitals were associated to stupidity, ugliness and lust, generally to negativity. Priapus, the god of fertility, enjoyed permanent erection, but was punished by the other gods, who kicked him out of Olympus and punished him with impotence. The great man of that age was rational, intellectual, powerful, his small penis allowed him not to be overwhelmed and to stay focused. The canon changed with the Romans, who accepted larger genitals, still without exaggeration. One of the most famous statues, the David by Michelangelo, is shown too with a small penis, in this case due to the psychological mastery of the great artist, who was this way able to render the scare of David at the sigth of Golia.

After this contribution, we have more food for thoughts on the shapes and sizes of the statue, enough seems to be known about the subject, we can guess about the giant he is facing, we still miss appropriate knowledge of the master who executed the piece of art.
