Dildohagen

dildO ride
A cracking shot from my mate Henrik. For reasons unexplained, this chap was going from A to B with a bag filled with dildos. Or is it like potatoes, with an 'e'? Dildoes? And by the looks of it there are some buttplugs in there, too. Hmm. Anyway, one wonders why a clear plastic bag was the transport choice. Whatever the case, this is Copenhagen. Such sights are met with a smile and shrug.

In other loosely related news from the 'useless trivia department' a recent survey revealed that 82% of Danish women have seen an adult film - porn to you and I - and 70% watch them regularly. 20% would like to have naked or pornographic photos taken of themselves. Compared to other countries, one would have to say that the expression 'world's collide' applies.

Too. Funny. For. Words!

It is an international bike thing, I think. About a month ago, I was riding downtown at night to meet a friend. Someone from behind yelled at me and when I turned to look, there was a guy hanging out of a VW, waving a giant, rubber dildo at me and yelling something incomprehensible. Maybe bikes and 'marital aides' go together in ways we didn't know!

That is too funny! I would have had to ask about the bag.

If anyone was ever to ride down the street with bag full of dildos here in the States.
He/she would be tazed for attempting to flee because they are on bike. And then beaten because of the thrashing of their body from the tazing would be interpreted as resisting arrest.

And if they were anywhere near or had already traveled through anyplace where children play, live, or or go for education. They would have to register as a sexual predator. God bless America.

My husband has just seen the picture and feels you may have jumped to some conclusions. He postulates that they may be handlebar grips. Perhaps they were meant for these

Hey cooki, are those your hand grips or are you just happy to see me?

Mikael said...

you see alot of unique bike accessories here, but you dont' see massively thick, brightly-coloured handlebar grips with bulbous heads. They're dildo[e]s. :-)

Mikael said...

bikejax... you forgot to mention that they would subsequently go to prison for life for possession of godlessly obscene material.

KT said...

Thanks, Mikael! I got a real dick - I mean kick - out of this post!

KT said...

P.S. Jax, a bag of dildo[e]s would be a most welcomed sight here in SF (we are part of the U.S., you know).

I'm in NYC...not sure anyone would even bat an eyelash at the sight of a bag filled with dildos on a bike. But if you notice, the colors of the dildos and butt plugs mimic the colors of the building across the street. Beautifully composed shot.

Mikael - Your survey results probably correlate to why Danish women are comfortable riding bikes in skirts... a possible upskirt view is probably not a big deal? (as opposed to here in the US)

P.S.

KT - I often wonder if we here in SF are in fact actually part of the US or not?

Mikael said...

Riding in skirts is normal practice in many countries so it's not just a Danish thing. In Japan, for example, you'll cycling skirts all day long. And in most every European city.

And after more than two years of photographing and regarding cyclists on a daily basis, I have yet to see upskirt.

Does bicycle porn count?

Because this site is pretty hot.

It's better then dealing with the airlines.
