The Cambodian government fears their “penile plants” could be endangered as more and more women pick them up off the ground and compare sizes

A government has warned sex-obsessed tourists against playing with “penis plants” and filming them on TikTok.

The Cambodian government has urged women to stay away from the phallus-shaped flowers called Nepenthes holdenii.

It comes after the Environment Ministry was alerted to a viral video showing several friends handling the erotic plants in the mountainous regions of western Cambodia.

On Wednesday (May 11), officials urged locals and travelers to stop touching the protected species, saying they are an endangered species.

They said people are increasingly pulling them out of the ground just so they can snap the perfect selfie, reports the New York Post.

The ministry warned: “What they are doing is wrong and will not do it again in the future!” Thank you for loving natural resources but don’t pick, [or] they will be ruined!”

The widely shared footage showed three women touching the endangered flowers on Mount Bokor in Kampot province.

They cheered when they came across the funny shaped plants and started picking them off the ground before comparing sizes.

It has been reported that no official complaint has been received at this time.

Environment Ministry spokesman Neth Pheaktra said there are 129 species of pitcher plants, five of which grow in some Cambodian regions, India Times reports.

According to the ministry’s website, “As more Cambodians travel to wildlife sanctuaries for recreation and adventure, senior officials from the Ministry of Environment are urging tourists to take care of the environment by properly packaging and storing solid waste.”

The warning added: “And especially to protect biodiversity, do not pick wildflowers that are protected to keep the seeds and preserve the beauty of the area for other nature-loving tourists.”
