NRSV has the marginal rendering "you have gazed on their phallus". So
this is a rendering supported by respectable scholars.

Also, BDB s.v. YD has

"4. YD is used also in special senses:— . . .
g. YfD XfZiYT Is 57.8  acc. to Hi De Che Or Brd Du and most = a phallus thou 
beholdest; this is favoured by the context but without support in Heb. usage; 
Di a (beckoning) hand."
(p. 390.2)
