Strange Mushroom Scent Triggers Female Orgasms?
 
Strange Mushroom Scent Triggers Female Orgasms?

<DIV class=node><DIV class=content>http://www.aphrodisiology.com/images...c-mushroom.jpg
  • An article in the International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms describes a strange and wonderful practice in Hawaii: women gather together to search for a particular mushroom. When they find it, they sniff it. The scent of this mushroom causes sexual arousal, often to the point of orgasm.

    The article describes a trial where 20 men and 16 women were asked to smell the mushroom. All of the men found the smell disgusting. All the women showed signs of arousal, and six experienced orgasm from the smell. The study noted that the women who did climax were the first women to smell it, while those who smelled it later (when it was older and weaker) noticed fewer effects.
One woman said she wanted to "gobble it up."


Could it Be Real?

.
Is this the Holy Grail of aphrodisiacs? A scent so potent that a few whiffs can send a woman over the cliff? Something that could be put in a time-released capsule for women with arousal disorders? The ultimate secret ingredient for the ultimate chocolate aphrodisiac?
A few people I talked with about this mushroom immediately decided that it was a hoax. Impossible, they say.
One person asked if the male and female chemistry are so vastly different that any chemical could cause repulsion in one gender and body-shaking ecstasy in the other? And how would it affect gay men or lesbian women?
I have corresponded with one of the authors of the paper; he is a respected mushroomologist (or mycologist if you want to be scientifically correct). He put his reputation on the line by publishing the article, and he has little to gain if it is a hoax.
Aphrodisiology has written about the truffle, which is is another mushroom that produces steroid pheromones. And some species of stinkhorn are eaten as aphrodisiacs in China.
Reading a report like this makes the old government plan to develop an Aphrodisiac Weapon a bit less loony.


Notes on Stinkhorns

.
Stinkhorns usually do stink. They have evolved to spread their spores by attracting flies - which is easy when you smell fetid like rotting flesh. But apparently this type of Dictyphora tries to smell bad, nasty and naughty instead of plain foul. And it randomly mutated to produce some type of pheromone or neurotransmitter or drug.
The mushroom in question is described as a new species in the genus Dictyphora or Phallus, or possibly as a new variety of a known species, Dictyphora indusiata.
It's no coincidence that the spelling for the genus Phallus looks like the word phallus, which is Latin for dick. Stinkhorns are definitely phallic symbols - and one variety may be much more than a symbol, as it appears to rock her world in a way that mere mortals cannot.

MoNow:

check out Phallus indusiatus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia




In case this jpeg doesn't come thru the link is:
Dictyophora indusiata


Oh BTW the link that I forgot to put in for the first article's source:

There is some question whether Indusiata from other tropical locales are also orgasmic. The Hawaian specimens maybe a distinct and seperate spieces.




"The grasshoppers, like other insects are attracted to the smelly spore mass lifted into the air when this stinkhorn sporocarp opens at maturity. In contrast to the tip, the fresh skirt of this fugus has a fragrant smell. In ancient China, the skirt was eaten exclusively by Emperors and commoners who ate it faced execution, if caught."


ALSO:

An EU patent application for an anti-AIDS drug uses Indusiata as one of its ingredients.

" It is also known that a Dictyophora indusiata-derived ingredient is absorbed in a human body through the mucous membrane to stimulate and activate the mucosal immunity, and that some beneficial effects can thus be expected such as an anti-tumor effect and an effect beneficial for treatment and remedy of infectious diseases caused by virus like AIDS, bacteria or the like (see, for example
Dictyophora (Phallus) indusiata var lutea"

Y'all might want to hold off on the plane reservations until you have found a very connected native guide. The very few native Hawaiian women who know where to find this mushroom, and more importantly when to find it, are very secretive.

Right now the biggest question is whether the Hawaiian variety is seperate species from the other Phallus Indusiata that grow in tropical climates around the world. There are at this point no reputable reports of orgasmic activity in any other locations.

I do intend to cultivate Indusiata and other stinkhorns in the Phallus genus. I have a trader in China contacting the producers commerciallly available edible stinkhorn to find out if it is cultivated or wildcrafted and further the availabity of spawn or spore. I am also searching for two out of print texts that disscuss the cultivation of Phallus stinkhorns, hopefully with specific growing parameters. And other efforts.

I will not abandon the search for the Orgasmic Grail, especially since it rides atop a fascinating being that for me is the object of passion and wonder and desire. The mushroom.

OK So you took these pictures and then...?

Soooo, like, are you going to like let us see them?

Progess Report:
As far as I know, the chinese commercial stinkhorns are as far as I can tell the Industiata species, so it is clearly edible. I am still waiting to receive samples.

These commercial examples are wildcrafted. I can not find any current cultivation, commercial or enthusiast, of any of the stinkhorn genus. Apperantly it has been done in the past but, I am still unable to locate the out of print publication that discusses growing paeameters.

Whether the hawaiian variety is a separate species is still unresolved.

Spawn and spore are still a distant dream.

Umami? Very good question. I will make a point of sharing my samples with fanatical foodie friends who have much more discerning taste than me.

The search continues.
