Sticky Monkey Flower...

I’m in the process of getting into Herbal Remedies and wholelistic medicines and all that. I ran across a tincture in the herbal store yesterday that was called “Sticky Monkey Flower”. I read that it has something to do with sex but I’m sure exactly what it does beyond that. I don’t know if it has to do with sexual drive (makes you horny) or gives a prolonged staying power (longer erection)or what ever else it could do. Does anyone know exactly what it does?

Thanks,

I can assure you it draws upon the powers of “Placebo”, thereby causing one quarter to one third of people who use it to report that it helped them. Save your bux.

Sticky Monkey Flower is supposed to help you overcome your fear of intimacy. It’s complete BS mind you, but that’s what’s it’s supposed to do.

I would urge you to check http://www.quackwatch.com, and Cecil’s past columns before spending too much money on “holistic” cures.

Not sure if it’s the same thing, but Diplacus( formerly Mimulus )aurantiacus in the family Scrophulariaceae is the Sticky Monkey Flower out here in CA. And it’s as common as dirt. Especially on rocky roadcuts.

If you must try this stuff ( and I’m not inclined to recommend it ) please don’t go out and spend an absurd amount of money on something that almost cetainly won’t work anyway - Just go pick some and brew a tea or something. Although I’d be damn sure to not take my word on it and make sure that a.) This is, in fact, the same flower and b.)That it doesn’t contain any known toxic compounds.

Omega, I’m sorry but my personal ethic doesn’t permit me to help someone get involved in holistic remedies by looking up “sticky monkey flower” for him on the Web. However, I will be happy to share my favorite search engine with you. It’s guaranteed to make you a happier, healthier person, and best of all, it’s free!

Enjoy! :smiley:

Sticky monkey flower…sounds like a bubbleism thing, if you ask me. But oh wait, that’s irrelevant to your question. And I’m not allowed to use sarcasm around you anymore. My bad.

Seriously, I have 2 comments.
#1. Try a search engine, see what that brings you
#2. I’d venture to say that herbal medicines probably don’t work out all too often, or at least the way you’re hoping for. If you really need the erection, go get yourself a prescription for some viagra.
