The Pénis of Victor Noir

It is a girl thing, to rub the enlarged bulge on the trousers of the monument to Victor Noir, a journaliste buried at Pere LaChaise Cemetery in Paris. 

This is a life-size bronze statue to mark his grave, portraying him as he fell, and dropping his hat which is depicted beside him. The sculpture has a very noticeable erection in M. Noir's trousers.  It is one of the most popular memorials for women to visit in Pere LaChaise.  The story behind it says that placing a flower in the upturned top hat after kissing the statue on the lips and rubbing its genital area will help one to be fertile, to have a blissful sex life, or, to get a husband.  The peculiar male part of the bronze statue is rather shiny and well-worn.

While I am content; I still rub M. Noir's thing to keep my good fortune going.  One must always take precautions.

The Three Musketeers

One of my favorite stories from childhood was Alexandre Dumas's The Three Musketeers.  When I was a teen I had a fantasy of being made love to by two of the main characters.

Sir Cloudesley Shovell Memorial

"Maude, where have you hid my pants?"

Sir Cloudesley Shovell

This remarkable man was an Admiral of the English fleet, who died in a shipwreck.  He had an interesting family name.  The English honoured him with burial at Westminister Abbey (where I learned about him) and a sculpture of exceeding bad taste.
