Haha! I don't know how to start this. I think a woman can describe this waaayyy better than me, but this job is assigned to me, and so I will try my best at it. Scientists have been doing a number of experiments on this mushroom since last 15 years and finally, they have got something fruitful out of it. Apparently, according to them, this brilliant orange colored mushroom is capable of giving women an incredible orgasm when they smell the odour of it, yes! its odour, not fragrance, however, if it gives you orgasm, the odour is worth it, right? And what's more weird is that this mushroom seems to repel men. Why, I ask? Why this discrimination? Anyway, check out the full story below.
According to the International Journal Of Medicinal Mushrooms (What's that?), this Hawaiian mushroom belongs to the Dictyophora, and it apparently grows on 600-10,000 years old lava-flows. No wonder why it smells terrible!
It gets its name from two Greek words, Dictyon meaning 'net' and Phero meaning 'to bear'.
Although no specific images of this mushroom have been provided by the Scientists, yet, as per their description, the mushroom resembles to that of a fishing net. It has many, fine hexagonal pores that make it look like a net. That's why it got the name 'Dictyophora' which means something that bears a net or looks like a net.
It can be found in the Tropical regions of southern Asia, Africa, the Americas, and Australia. It is rarest of the rare species of Mushroom and scientists haven't yet found a way to reproduce it.
Scientists John C. Holliday and Noah Soule gathered a sample of 36 men and women. 16 women were asked to smell the mushroom, out of which 10 women experienced mild orgasm when they inhaled it and the rest 6 women noticed an increase in the rate their heart beat. Whereas, the 10 men who smelled the mushroom felt absolutely nothing. For them, the smell was even more grotesque than it was for women.
There is no definite theory as to why this mushroom causes orgasm in women. However, scientists believe that this mushroom is a female aphrodisiac in Hawaiian and South Pacific lore, referred to as Mamalo a Wahine, which translates to "women's mushroom", and has a recorded use in the Chinese Medinice during 7 AD.
Since Scientists are unable to provide any strong reasons for such behaviour, we cannot trust this information blindly. The Scientists are yet to study it thoroughly. Plus, the experiment worked on 10 women, this does not mean that it will work for every woman out there. The vounteers propably had a psychological stroke and nothing else. Who knows!
