A Penis Restaurant in Beijing called Guo-li-zhuang is a specialist penis and testicle emporium that caters mainly to wealthy businessmen and Communist party officials. The restaurant offers every conceivable type of penis you could ever dream of, if you have these types of dreams, that is. In an interview for “Spiegel Online”, the manager of the restaurant, Chen Jianguo, says that there is “a special menu for special guests”, and by that he means that each guest chooses his/her dishes based on their health benefits.

Lucy, a 20-year-old waitress in the Penis Restaurant, says that many guests are unaware of the benefits that each dish entails, and so the job of the waitress is also to know the benefits of each dish and its preparation method. “For thousands of years, Chinese medicine has used animal penises to cure kidney and erection problems,” she says. “But for their medicinal effect to work, the dishes have to be consumed regularly”.
