Orchids and Sexual Satisfaction

A new orchid species has been discovered in Australia. To pollinate itself, it dupes a male wasp into attempted copulation with it. This is nothing new in the orchid world. Orchids are quite highly evolved and expertly use animal mimicry to their advantage. However, what is unusual is that this orchid species can entice and excite a male wasp to the extent it actually climaxes and ejaculates on the orchid. This is detrimental to the wasp as it, erm, can't quite "reload" like other animals. So, its copulation was a fruitless endeaver. But, hey, at least it got satisfied.

I do wonder what it would be like if such a substance existed for humans and imagine if it could be bottled. Not a bad thought to be able dab it behind the ears and make any man swoon with desire...

You might want to rethink that perfume thing. It could lead to quite high dry cleaning bills.
