The Phallus Indusiatus ranks as a mushroom with very unusual attributes. The natural aroma of this fungus has the ability to produce spontaneous orgasms in women. Now that will get one’s attention.
The naturally produced scent of this mushroom only produced this (dare we say energetic?) effect on 37.5% of the tested women, and in large concentrations. In smaller concentrations, the scent merely evokes elevated heart rates in women tested. Still better than nothing.
Among men tested, 100% considered the scent extremely unpleasant, with no reported physiological effects. Therefore, you might say the Phallus Indusiatus remains a mainly female-friendly mushroom.
What a species to exist.
Phallus Indusiatus Physical Characteristics
Mature specimens often attain a height of as much as 10 in (25 cm). That makes it a rather large mushroom. The top often measures up to 1.6 in (4 cm) in width.
The species also produces a wide, lacy skirt. Its stalk typically displays a bright white color, while the cap most commonly has a light or dark brown color.
The mushroom stays short-lived, rarely lasting more than 3 days.
Phallus Indusiatus Distribution, Habitat, and Ecology
It is uncommon in the wild in all areas, however. Though it principally appears in tropical forests, it will also grow opportunistically in gardens if the soil is rich enough. So if you are a lady and have some space to grow something, we recommend you try growing this specific type of mushroom.
This fungus has been shown to possess numerous chemicals with medicinal properties. It is also edible and commonly used in Oriental cooking
