A bag the size of a moneyed man's coinpurse made typically of non-irritating materials such as chinese silk or tanned cowhide. When such materials are not available burlap or simple cotton will suffice. The opening is tied with jute string tightened either around the base of the shaft or for the well-endowed, around neck, and the entire garment is bundled around one's junk so as to protect it from the elements. In recent years it has ceased to be solely functional, and now is worn for decorative purposes or during religious ceremonies
Tad preferred a burlap dickbag to strengthen and texturalize his junk.
