HK Magazine: What is your function? Mr. Penis: I play a small part as a tour guide in the new Family Planning Association's sex education CD, especially when we explore a "Body Parts Theme Park." There are many educational games and activities for children and their parents to explore on the CD, so I act as a helpful icon to provide tips and hints for the children. I started off as one of several separate characters in two recent game books published by the FPA, and I quickly moved on to this CD, which is aimed mostly at kids aged 6-7 years old. HK: Why are you dressed as Elvis? MP: I think it helps children relate to me. Many cartoons for youngsters personify animals such as bears and penguins to convey a message, I try to make myself more acceptable and friendly to children who are curious about their bodies. I look like a cool singer so youngsters won't feel ashamed about their bodies. They can identify more easily with a character who reminds them of the cute people they see on children's cartoons and Disney movies. And if I do say so myself, I think I'm kind of cute. HK: Why does it look like the main organ of your attention is on your head? MP: Oh no, that isn't my head. My entire body is essentially made up of the penis and scrotum - my "body" being the latter. I just have arms and legs to give myself a more human and recognizable persona. HK: Do you think your hairstyle is perhaps a bit misleading for youngsters? Perhaps a Bob Marley do would have been more appropriate. MP: Yes, I see what you mean. To be honest, I had this image of Elvis for myself, and to make it more like him, I thought this hairstyle was cuter than any other without looking rather weird. My physical appearance isn't necessarily supposed to be a diagram of the anatomy, more like something interesting for kids. The real information comes with the CDs and books I’m in. Thank you for your suggestion, though, my handlers should certainly consider it. HK: Do you have any friends or family? MP: Not really. Although quite a few characters have been created by the FPD, they do not have any specific relation to one another. We are all simply tools to brighten and aid the main body of educational games and other publications and products. HK: So you have a better half? MP: No. There is a Ms. Uterus, although - again - I don't know her. The main figureheads for the FPD are Tak-tak and Kar-kar, and are simply a boy and girl. They are the characters who more often are the spokespersons for sex ed. HK: Where can I find you? MP: The educational CD that includes me will be released very soon. It can be bought on the internet at www.famplan.org.hk/sexedu or you can come to our Reference Library at 8/F, Southorn Center, 130 Hennessy Rd., Wan Chai, 2919-7793.
