fas­ci­nat­ing stuff

The Field - - LETTERS -

Eve Jones asks what the fas­ci­na­tion is with the phal­lus

(Younger in the field, May is­sue). She might be in­ter­ested to know that the word “fas­ci­na­tion” comes from fascinum or

fasci­nus, mean­ing charm/hex/ spell. It also means pe­nis or phal­lus, al­though men­tula is an­other Latin term for the male mem­ber so fasci­nus seems to re­fer more to the erect mem­ber. James Cope, Blair­gowrie, Perthshire
