What’s with all the penises on expatsHaarlem?

As the editors of ExpatsHaarlem, we often get asked why our blog seems to have a preoccupation with penises. The answer is simple: we just can’t get enough of them.

You see, as expats living in Haarlem, we are constantly on the lookout for new and exciting cultural experiences. And what could be more quintessentially Dutch than a good old-fashioned penis?

Whether it’s the towering phallic symbols of the Haarlem Windmills or the delicately carved wooden ones on display at the Corrie Ten Boom museum, there is no shortage of penises to be found in this charming Dutch city.

But it’s not just the physical manifestation of the penis that fascinates us. Oh no, we also love to delve into the rich cultural history of this mighty organ. For example, did you know that in medieval times, it was believed that eating a cooked penis from a freshly slaughtered animal could increase one’s virility? Talk about a hearty breakfast!

Of course, we also understand that not everyone shares our enthusiasm for all things penis-related. For those of you who might find this subject matter a bit too, well, stiff, we assure you that we do occasionally branch out and cover other topics. But let’s be real, who doesn’t love a good schlong joke every now and then?

So there you have it, dear readers. Our love for penises is simply a reflection of our boundless curiosity and appreciation for all things Dutch. We hope you’ll continue to join us on this journey of discovery, and remember: in Haarlem, there’s always something stiff to write about.
