Amid the sleepy, irony-lined streets of Portland, Oregon, a menace looms quietly from above—and if you don’t look up, you could miss it. 

“It” being any one of potentially dozens of fleshy, sizable dildos, draped in string-bound pairs over the city’s power lines. The identity of Portland’s public dildo curator remains a mystery, even as more high-flying tandem sex toys reveal themselves to the city’s residents.

The first dildo pair revealed itself on Saturday at north Portland’s Mississippi Street Fair—a heinously family-friendly affair that attracts suburbanites to inner Portland like so many Old Navy-clad moths to flame. Mississippi Street was decked out in a full dildo quatrain, as revealed by Instagram user @rojuliase, who documented one of the earlier sightings. On Reddit, user ublike shared an Imgur upload in which a second set hangs in the foreground.
