SF's Controversial Penis Mascots Return To Castro

Three six-foot-tall "Healthy Penises" made a special re-appearance at noon Friday in the Castro District. The less-popular "Phil the Syphilis Sore" also showed up. They are actually healthcare workers inside the outrageous costumes, which were recently on loan to other cities.
A health department spokesperson said the outfits, which debuted seven years ago, are intended to bring attention to the need for gay men to get syphilis tests. Syphilis cases are on the rise, as the sexually-transmitted disease has risen 50-percent from 2007 to 2008.
Caitlyn said...
Please, everyone knows they're not even moderately realistic.
Since when is the white penis bigger than the black penis?
Are you telling this from experience?
Who said it was a "Black Penis?"
The darker shade one could be a "Mexican."
