If you, like me, spend most of your doldrum hours in the throes of a Ke$ha-cloud, you probably already know about her new line of jewelry, which includes this memorable penis-shaped gold necklace that you can pair with matching earrings or, if you feel extra crafty, some sort of brooch.
I mean, by Ke$ha's standards, these are actually fairly inexpensive ways to tell the world that you never quite grew out of the impulse that fourth-grade boys have to draw dicks all over everything. In all honesty, I'm a big believer in normalizing the body, and if festooning your face with gold-plated penis renditions is the way you'd like to work toward that goal, more power to you.
But what if you're just in the mood for a little variety? Emily got us started last year with these penis leggings, but to really add some verve to your jewelry collection, check out this array of genital-themed accessories. Even if pieces like these aren't exactly up your alley, you have to admit that someone cared enough about the human form to lovingly render it in felt, and that's kind of awesome. Fair warning, though: you might as well consider this whole piece not safe for work. Or possibly dignity.

Penis Tongue Ring
Wear to: Nowhere. Please don't wear these as directed. Can you imagine eating anything larger than a grape while wearing these? Or kissing someone on the mouth? They are pretty cool, though, so maybe you could make them into a nose ring or convert them into thumbtacks. Pair with: An equal sense of horror and awe at the things birthed by this wacky, wonderful Internet worldCorresponding Ke$ha jam: "Cannibal"
Kate is dead serious about purchasing all of these, except possibly the tongue rings. If you are, too, please let her know: @katchatters
