Could This Be A Stone Age Dildo?

The Swedes have done it again. This time, Swedish archaeologists are wondering if they’ve unearthed a dildo from the Stone Age. This carved piece made from antler  bone (hey, they didn’t have medical grade silicone or Pyrex back then) certainly looks like an erect penis – or an “erected-penis-like-shape” as archaeologist Gsran Gruber of the National Heritage Board in Sweden said. But there’s always the possibility it was used for other purposes such as fertility worship, stirring cake batter or practicing Stone Age oral sex techniques, right?

In any case, it reminds me of what I envision Hank Moody’s penis to look like, thanks to several allusions to its size and shape in various episodes.
