There is a mushroom that will give women an instant orgasm, and it is in Hawaii.
Just another good reason to visit!
According to Holliday and Soule, “On the island of Hawaii in the Central Pacific, there has long been the rumor of a bright orange colored mushroom with peculiar properties. Found growing only on recent lava flows approximately 600 – 10,000 years old, this variety of mushroom has the reputation of being a potent female aphrodisiac when smelled.”

The study that was published back in 2001 is only a quarter of a page long and doesn’t even name the exact mushroom. All we are given is the species: Dictyophora. This isn’t much to go on, but the results of the small study are promising to say the least.
Holliday and Soule found male and female volunteers. The volunteers were asked to take a big whiff of the mushroom. Nearly half of the female volunteers climaxed, and all showed signs of arousal. All the male volunteers found the smell disgusting.
The reasoning behind this? “The results suggest that the hormonelike compounds present in the volatile portion of the spore mass may have some similarity to human neurotransmitters released during sexual encounters.” (Holliday and Soule)
Basically, the smell of the mushroom triggers orgasms.
The nose is more powerful than you think!
What do these mushrooms look like?
This is the closest possibility that I could find. It is about the same color, but it is not growing on a lava flow.
