New golden vagina that stands 4ft tall is worshipped at Thai temple by women praying for luck, fertility and help finding their dream man

A new golden vagina that stands 4ft tall is being worshipped at a temple in Thailand by women praying for luck, fertility and help finding their dream man.
Footage shows the anatomically correct replica of the female genitalia engraved with prayers at a Buddhist shrine in Nakhon Ratchasima province.
Eight smaller vaginas surround the mammoth vulva, while a stone snake with seven heads has been built under a mango tree to ‘guard’ the sacred lady parts.
The ‘fortune’ vagina was reportedly built by devout Buddhist nun Naowaratkotchaporn Simethawong or ‘Mother Brahmin,’ to cleanse women of bad luck for committing sinful acts.
The statue has swollen in popularity and followers now regularly visit to pray.

Devotees have even built a matching golden penis surrounded by eight smaller penises to complement the selection of vulvas on show.
The genital shrine has become such a hit that local council chief Kanatchon Sijaroen was joined by a team of his staff and several policemen to inspect the items on May 22 and ensure they comply with local locals.
Relieved Kanatchon has now cleared the items. He said: ‘We want to ensure the shrine complies with the moral standards. We ordered them to remove signs that might be vulgar.
‘It was also found to be disrespectful to have a Buddhist shrine so close to genitalia statues, so we have ordered that to be moved to a new position.’

After the inspection, the shrine continued to operate, and the followers were allowed to pay respect to the vagina statue.
However, a large Buddhist statue that used to stand between the vagina and the penis was ordered to be relocated to a different area in the shrine to avoid ‘being disrespectful’ to the religious monument.
Visiting the vagina statue to pray and take part in the special ceremony costs 500 baht (£11.61).
Mother Brahmin said: ‘We do ceremonies here to provide remedies for misfortunes, particularly women who aborted a child.’
She added: ‘I believe that we should pay respect to the genitals because they represent the origin of life and abundance in the world. It is not strange or unusual. ‘Despite this, I am willing to cooperate with the government to address any concerns.’
