The English dubbing on the Pom Poko DVD refers to the scroti as "raccoon pouches".

2: Huh. Was that part of the blockquote when you first posted this? Oh well.

I suspect that even the undicked walruses are pretty big.

Yep:

Adult males, or bulls, are up 12 feet long and may weigh up to 2 tons; although females are smaller they can weigh more than 1 ton.

Man. Every time I think I have an idea how foreign Japanese culture is to me, something new comes along to make me boggle all over. This is a fun blue joke to doodle, but an entire genre?

If a guy invited me up to see his engravings, and these were among them, I'd be too distracted to be seduced.

What about a big-dicked grey seal? (My idiot husband watched these two for about 15 minutes, thinking that one of them was a kindly midwife seal who was helping the other to give birth.)

And, I have been googling tanuki testicles in the hope of finding a photo of an actual real animal's balls, but am having no luck.

The word you are looking for is usik, the Inuit term for a club made from the wedding tackle of a walrus.

My friend's dad tried making a walking stick from a bull penis, and had it hanging up drying and stretching in their spare room for ages, but it never got stiff enough.

Aha, and on googling usik, I found this thread which suggests that my friend's dad needed to put something inside his bull penis to make it work!

And here I was thinking he just needed to give it a bit of a caress.

12: You know you can buy a resin copy of a bull penis walking stick now? That just seems semiotically pointless on so many levels. Especially when the real ones are pretty easy to come by. As it were.

One of the microbreweries up here has a beer called Oosik Amber. It's quite good.
