Just some men, playing with their, um… cocks?

There were so many caption options available for this, but of course, I just had to go with the obvious. Who wouldn’t?

Men playing with cocks is a common sight here in Bali and one that never fails to amuse me. I stopped and had a lovely chat with these guys, practiced my limited Bahasa-Indonesian for a while and found them to be incredibly charming indeed.

Not at all like the sort of men you might find playing with their cocks on the streets back home.

These cocks are actually fighting cocks, used for gambling, so they’re like prized possessions, which is why they’re so lovingly stroked on the streets all the time. I don’t think it’s too good for the birds. The fighting I mean. Loads of them die. Shame really… but they do look beautiful clucking away in the hands of these men, don’t they?

I love a beautiful coc… Oh alright. OK. I’ll shut up now.
