An elderly Indonesian woman famed nationwide for supernatural skills in lengthening penises has died
Reclusive Mak Erot, famed for penis extension treatment incorporating traditional herbs and Islamic prayer, has died in Caringin village on the western coast of Java island. Mak Erot - who reports aged anywhere from 101 to over 130 - prompted legions of imitations of her famous clinics, many using her famously craggy and birthmarked face to lure in anxious men. While her legacy has been closely guarded by male descendents intent on maintaining the purity of the treatment, Mak Erot has become a pop-culture icon in everything from advertisements to teenage romantic comedy films.
