85 years ago She Kept Trying and Trying

31-year-old Geisha, prostitute, actress and murderess Sada Abe is arrested walking around the street with the cut off penis and testicles of her lover Kichizo Ishida in her handbag in Shinagawa, Tokyo, Kantō, Japan.

"I felt attached to Ishida's penis and thought that only after taking leave from it quietly could I then die. I unwrapped the paper holding them and gazed at his penis and scrotum. I put his penis in my mouth and even tried to insert it inside me... It didn't work however though I kept trying and trying." After her arrest, Ishida's penis and testicles were moved to Tokyo University Medical School's pathology museum. They were put on public display not long after the end of World War II, but they have since disappeared.
