Our friends at Vice magazine are never afraid to closely examine the dicks of our culture, ones they love, ones they hate and all the ones in between. New York Dick is very pleased that the team at Vice has taken a detailed look at the pricks in our book, and they like what they see. Vice asked Doctor Charlie Miller of Manchester University to focus his critical eye on "our favourite new art book" and provide some informed insight to the motivations and meanings of penis drawings on advertising posters. The results are truly insightful and truly ridiculous (much like the drawings themselves). 

Miller is not afraid to dig deep and get arty, "This mixing of genitals and different body parts is very typical of some kinds of surrealism. Artists like Miró and Picasso were into the disorganisation of the sexual body. But also it’s a silly way of subverting that sort of sexual imagery." Very interesting, but when you pair these comments with the rich visual counterpoint of a schlong sprouting out of some honey's navel and pointing at the puckering lips of a tv star/voyeur...delicious.

Read Doctor Miller's comments and see the ding-dongs that inspired them at Vice online — and get your mind out of the toilet, perv.
