Corn Sex Dol­lies

VIZ - - Out in the Country -

Every au­tumn, af­ter the corn har­vest was safely gath­ered in, the men of ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties in Dorset would take the left-over stalks and, us­ing tech­niques passed down from fa­ther to son through count­less gen­er­a­tions, plait them into elab­o­rate CORN SEX DOL­LIES.

The style of weav­ing would vary from vil­lage to vil­lage and ham­let to ham­let, with each man vy­ing to cre­ate the most sex­u­ally al­lur­ing, full size corn woman com­plete with three re­al­is­tic holes. On the night of the first Moon af­ter the Har­vest Moon, the vil­lagers would pa­rade their sex dol­lies around the Parish Bounds three times. Then the wom­en­folk would gather in the church for a Har­vest Fes­ti­val ser­vice of Thanks­giv­ing, while the men took their cre­ations home to per­form a time­honoured fer­til­ity rite.
