horn of plenty
   the penis
   Punning on horn1 and the cornucopia which, before brimming over with good things, was no more than the capital adornment of the goat which suckled Zeus:
    She left her bikini top on, but she removed the bottom and then wrestled off my trunks. She held our suits in one hand and with the other grabbed hold of the horn of plenty. (Turow, 1993)
