Orgasm-Inducing Fungus, Better Than A Boyfriend

Officially discovered back in 2001, John Halliday and Noah Soule were the very first to record the effects of a supposedly orgasm-inducing fungus. Get me some of that shroom, am I right ladies?

In an article published in the International Journal of Medicinal Mushrooms, Halliday explains that Soule heard of an unusual orange mushroom growing in 600-1000 year old lava flows on the island of Hawaii. The unnamed Dictyophora species was famed for its ability to do what men have been pretending is impossible to do forever, get women off. So of course, these two guys checked it out (for science obvi).

All of their female test subjects reported an increase in arousal upon smelling the fungus, and over half of them climaxed. Their male test subjects, however, claimed it smelled absolutely disgusting. Halliday and Soule described the morphology and chemistry of the fungus as having hormone-like compounds that might have something in common with the neurotransmitters we release while gettin’ it on. With that in mind, I would like to issue a formal invitation to John Halliday and Noah Soule for some Netflix and chill. Let’s put the ‘fun’ in fungus.
