The first Russian Museum of Erotica is opening in St. Petersburg, according to Russian Nezavisimaya Gazeta daily. The museum is founded by Igor Knyazkin, the chief of the prostate research center of the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences.
And in that museum — which is sure to become a tourist attraction — they are going to display the member of Grigory Rasputin, aka "Mad Monk," advisor to the Russian royal family who was later considered by some to be too close and assasinated in 1916.
But a touching (not literally) memento of his remains in a jar (the story shows it). And the head of the museum is ecstatic:
"Having this exhibit, we can stop envying America, where Napoleon Bonaparte’s penis is now kept," he said. "Napoleon’s (male defining organ) is but a small 'pod' it cannot stand comparison to our organ of 30 centimeters…” (What would you call that kind of envy?)
The Moderate Voice's sources tell us that some bigwigs only wanted to display the priceless jar for a few months but the museum director wants to stick it out for one more year.
