Locals annoyed by monk and his magic wooden penis

A sexual shaman’s magic penis is rubbing some locals the wrong way in Ratchaburi province.

To get rid of an monk’s unwanted sexual homeopathy – which doesn’t violate any criminal statutes – residents have turned to cultural authorities for help with a man they say lures vulnerable, lonely women in for some kinky rites in the name of finding love.

Getting your dream dude coming to you is simple under the monk’s simple strategy: Just come on in and let him rub a Palad Khik, or wood penis amulet onto your breasts and face. Oh, and don’t forget to pay THB312 for this salacious service.

Seriously. Though it seems you could just do that at home and save the baht.

Not pleased with the monk defiling their Koh Potharam temple, locals gathered signatures and submitted a video taken during one such magical session to Songkran Atchariyasap, chairman of the “Network Against Acts that Destroy Kingdom, Religion and Monarchy.”

“In the video, the monk says ‘What are those two lumps?’ and the girl said ‘Oh, just my boobs,’ just like that!,” a horrified Songkran exclaims after watching the video.

The revealing revelation begs the question: who actually pays this creep to rub them? 

According to Songkran, the monk has been running his love business for five years and denied any accusations of wrongdoing when authorities inspected the temple.

“He ran it like a business and even has a sign put up saying it’s open from 9am – 5pm,” Songkran explained. “Locals have brought the issues to the related organizations, but no action against him was taken.”

On the popular show Morning News, Songkran demanded The National Office of Buddhism to take the issue seriously.
