New Film Takes a Close Look at the Biology and Culture of Penises

The Atlantic just released a short clip from The Dickumentary: A Short History of the Penis, a new documentary about penises from filmmaker Sofian Khan.


The Dickumentatry explores the biology and culture of the penis, and Kahn interviews more than 40 experts from 14 countries on topics ranging from penis evolution and physiology, to phallus worship through human history, and the cultural significance we give the organ today.

Full disclosure: I’m one of the biologists Kahn interviewed for the film, along with duck sex expert Patricia Brennan and paleontologist John Long.
