"Mom, what's a dildo?" a child asks.

"Oh, hmmm, wasn't ready to have this conversation yet. OH! It's a town in Newfoundland!" the mother responds.

That imaginary mother wasn't lying to her kid; there really is a town in Newfoundland called Dildo.

How big is it? Roughly 1,200 people live there, who proudly call themselves Dildoians, according to The New York Times. It's been around since the late 18th century, and is primarily known for its abundance of marine resources. As in animals, not actual Marines holding dildos.

There have been previous attempts to change the name to something less controversial, but all measures have failed. The people of Dildo are proud of their long and strong heritage.

While you're exploring Dildo, you can drop by The Treasure Cove (not a sex store), B & M Machine Shop (also not a sex store), or even the Mattress Store (indirectly a sex store).

Or you could create a YouTube video of yourself touring Dildo. Just please, layoff the techno music; the people of Dildo prefer smooth jazz.
