The Icelandic Phallogical Museum is exactly what it sounds like—an institution dedicated to the history of the penis in all its shapes and sizes, but it's missing one key specimen: a human organ. And that's the starting point for "The Final Member," a documentary about founder and curator Sigurdur Hjartarson's quest to complete his collection.

The Final Member

The Icelandic Phallogical Museum is exactly what it sounds like—an institution dedicated to the history of the penis in all its shapes and sizes, but it's missing one key specimen: a human organ. And that's the starting point for "The Final Member," a documentary about founder and curator Sigurdur Hjartarson's quest to complete his collection.

Directed by Jonah Bekhor and Zach Math, the doc tells the tale of two men who want leave their, uh, legacy behind. First is 95-year-old Icelander Páll Arason, something of a legend in his native country, and a notorious womanizer, claiming to have slept with over 400 women. And his cock is fairly average in size, which makes middle-aged American Tom Mitchell's seven-inch penis a bit more prized, especially when he offers to donate it to the museum while he's still alive. Yes, this is a remarkable true story and in this clip you get to meet both oddball men at the heart of this tale.

A documentary we called "a warm look at a quirky subject that gets to the human story behind it," "The Final Member" opens in limited release on April 18th.
