The Romans used fascinums as a way to ward off sickness, disease and the evil eye. A fascinum is a "divine penis." Basically, they would wear penis amulets - young, old, male & female. They would also make them into windchimes.
What makes it interesting today is the fact that the modern English word 'fascinate' comes from this word. So, everytime you say something is fascinating, you're talking about a penis. 😀
