Sadhu (Hindu holy man) wrapping his penis around a sword, at the Kumbh Mela 2013 Hindu festival near Allahabad (India).
He will then pass the sword between his legs, hold it horizontally under his butt, and have another fellow Sadhu stand on the sword. This is a trick popular among the Naga [naked] Sadhus. Sometimes they use a stick instead of a sword.
Kumbh Mela is the largest festival on Earth, taking place once every 12 years, with more than 50 million Hindu pilgrims gathering to pray and bathe in the holy Ganges river.
