Phallic Rock of Molokai

Ka Ule o Nanahoa

















It is said that this stone can help infertile couples conceive. Women would come with offerings and spend the night with the stone and leave pregnant in the morning.





Offerings at this fertility shrine continue to this day.



Update: March 16th

The backside of Molokai's Phallic Rock looks a lot like a Barcalounger. It would be very easy and maybe even comfortable for a women to spend the night with the Rock and dream sweet dreams of fertility.















If getting pregnant is not what you want then it is wise to carry a big stick with you when visiting the Phallic Rock as this young lady is wise to do.

Talk about being caught between a rock and a hard place.

What is all that white stuff surrounding Mr. Rock Hard -on ?

Never mind.

A lot of the bright white spots and coloration is from a natural lichen that grows on the hard smooth rock. It does look like someone may have added an acid bath dribble for effect.

Women spend the night here and leave pregnant in the morning, huh?

I'm so not touching that one. Not at all!

I think the women have to touch it in order to leave pregnant in the morning.
