It is a centuries old boys
dream. You are talking to a very desirable woman and tormented with
wonder how she could be seduced. When she heads for the ladies' room,
there comes an opportunity: secretly you pour a Magical Chemical
Substance in her drink - which is not to remain without effect. On
taking a first nip, her initial coolness disappears. She becomes wild
and desperate, and Oh! Does She Need A MAN!
To bed is where
she wants to go, and with You Only, and she will do anything you long
for! Truckloads of orgasms fall to the both of you. 'I never made love
this way before', she pants, full of admiration when the party is over.
Is it possible to stimulate your sex life somewhat with chemical
substances? Ask a doctor and he will reply scornfully:'No -
aphrodisiacs exist in man's imagination only'. But anyone prepared to
explore the depths of the fascinating world of the chemistry of love
will come to the conclusion that scientific literature need not always
be as dry as dust, and that there are indeed chemicals that arouse a
love feeling, or even a 72-hour erection (of which alas the last hours
can be somewhat painful).
In the past, aphrodisiacs mainly
served the purpose of causing as many erections as possible. But, of
course, there is more to love and sex than erections alone: numerous
biochemical processes are taking place when you are in love, excited,
about to come, both in men and in women. It is not only the quantity
but also the quality of sex that matters.
Do men need aphrodisiacs?
'Real' men do not of course. But where can you find these nowadays?
According to a dealer in sex aids, every man will experience a moment
of sexual incompetence one day. Scientific estimates - men do not in
general flaunt their misery - show that approximately 6% of the male
population suffers from chronic 'impotentia erigendi' - the inability to
have an erection. These people are ill and need to be treated. Many
people still think that 'the' impotent man is typically a poor beggar
with relational problems, something in the psychological field. But
nowadays it is assumed that with half the chronically impotent men
something is wrong physically, which can be treated more appropriately
physically/chemically instead of sending him off to psychotherapy
together with his wife!
Do women need aphrodisiacs?
This is much less clear. The reason is that in early experiments, male
rats injected with the substances to be tested came onto the females
like bats out of hell, with the laboratory people taking notes:'Rat B2
copulates three times - substance effective - experiment succesful'.
Nowadays, male rats are tied and attempts made to lure female rats -
with perfumes for example - into the direction of the males and to leave
further proceedings to the females. It sometimes works - as will
become clear later on.
Furthermore, drugs are in demand which -
provided they are safe - can enhance our joie de vivre somewhat,
especially now the Aids threat forces us to become more loyal to our
ALCOHOL - We start with a resource which is to no avail generally.
Ages ago, it was Shakespeare who phrased it in the following way :'It
provokes the desire, but takes away the performance'. Taken in small
quantities, it could facilitate contacts between people,but then again,
who will stick to small quantities?
Furthermore, it has been
ascertained that any consumption of alcohol has in fact a negative
influence on the ability to make love. With men, anyway, there are
indications that women derive more pleasure from lovemaking or indulge
in it more easily under the influence of alcohol, but substantial
evidence does not exist.
Ten years after, this writer still
blushes with shame when he thinks of the one occasion when he was
banging this nice girl, being blind drunk and going about it
monomaniacally and completely without joy. Even ten bouquets of roses
which he gave her could not take away his feelings of guilt.
CLOMIPRAMINE is a 'remedy' against depressions, but according to a
canadian scientific magazine, it did have strange effects with four
people: they had an orgasm whenever they yawned. It stopped when
medication was ended. One of the women said she could excite her own
orgasm by yawning. Another woman said she had this irresistible sexual
desire. One of the men was extremely hindered by his ejaculations and
had a condom over his penis most of the time. Another was so upset by
the effects of yawning that he had to lie in bed up to fifteen minutes
long every time he yawned.
Of course, these are merely cases
in which it is not yet clear whether they were caused by this medicine
or not. We know of a related drug - Imipramine - that it causes erections when injected in the penis, so we need not be surprised.
COCAINE According to reports, cocaine makes you experience sex more
intensively, be it on your own: you are inclined to go and get your own
satisfaction and your partner may feel like a means to an end. Cocaine
is often used as a seduction drug. If you succeed in making a woman
sniff some, she could end up running after her own satisfaction, and
the mere idea seems to attract men. It could turn out to be a deception
though, with men complaining they are being used as a sex object.
There is a doctor in California who thinks cocaine could be used to
treat frigidity. Many wild stories tell of women who owe their first
orgasm to cocaine.
But cocaine is dangerous. It can be
addictive and cause spontaneous heart failure. Californian doctor Gawin
confirms this but adds that it is used on such a large scale that many
people probably know how to handle it without a hitch. 'And considered
the fact that we use morphine in hospitals, I think it is perfectly
O.K. to help people who have sexual problems by giving them coke'.
CREAMS - Because readers' service is valued most, I tried a few
drugs myself. We received a set of creams from a dealer friend in sex
aids which - once put onto the penis - were to have 'erektionsfordernde
Wirkung'. Well well. One cream (active ingredient: para amino acid
benzylester) made my glans glow faintly and put me peacefully to sleep.
Another cream contained nicotinic acid isopropylester and had to be
rubbed onto the shank. It was a tough and sticky substance which needed
a lot of massaging to do; therefore research results were not valid.
My prick remained a funny oily brush till late next afternoon. By the
way, the dealer already had confided to me that he put more trust in
his porno films.
FEROMONES - In a British sex magazine, aerosols with which to make
oneself irresistible are frequently advertised. Does it work? With pigs
there is no doubt about it: a small dose of a sex hormone is sprayed
into the nose of the sow, and the immediate result is that the sow gets
excited and prepared to mate with a boar.
A dentist once tried
this aerosol in his waiting room. The chair which had been scented did
have the ladies' preference. Warning: some of the ladies think the
odour is absolutely disgusting.
MINCED PRICK - At least one quarter of the worlds population, viz.
the Chinese, is convinced that aphrodisiacs serve a purpose. As a
result of three thousand years of medical science, the chinese can buy
the most bizarre drugs in local chemists shops. I own a preparation
with one part of minced dog prick, one part of minced donkey prick, one
part of minced stag prick, vitamins and methyltestosterone hormone in
it. Furthermore, the chinese are convinced that it is useful to strip a
deer of its antlers once in a while and to consume the bloody contents
of the horns. Proprietors of old rhinoceros can make a fortune in
China. Again Chinamen are convinced that this makes for a fabulous sex
Strangely enough, they are not allowed to produce a
second child and contraceptives are available only on presentation of a
marriage certificate. For fear of being socially excommunicated,
pre-marital sex has been reduced to a minimum. Prostitution is said not
to exist. No doubt the chinese consume a lot of aphrodisiacs, but for
what purpose then?
HALLUCINOGENS - These are drugs like LSD and Peyote. Experiences
tend to vary. Some people are not affected, while others claim
Hallucinogens could add another
dimension to sex: more affectionate, more mystical, thus inducing a
feeling of amalgamation (written in capitals of course). These drugs
turn sex into something of 'being together' . They enhance the
experience of the uniqueness and beauty of your partner. It is
important though to like each other and to have experience with these
drugs when you start experimenting with them.
Peyote is said to
increase pleasure and LSD and psylocybine to enable sexual intercourse
to last longer. LSD and psylocybine are also said to cause typical
role behaviour: males behave very male -like, females very female-like.
Since experiences with these drugs are difficult to predict they are
rather useless in therapy.
MARIHUANA is said to enlarge the sensations
of sexual intercourse with experienced users, notably in the domain of
touch, taste and orgasm. It makes you experience new things and more
intensively too. It could be used in sex therapy, as an aid to people to
get to know feelings which would remain unknown otherwise.
Nowadays, sex therapy often involves exercises for partners in which
they have to stroke each other all over the body, except the genital
parts. However, since this therapy is unsuccessful in many cases,
marihuana could be of assistance.
I have some experience with
hashish myself, which was special indeed - but it was in a situation in
which touching each other's genitals was explicitly on the agenda.
Scientific literature boasts a large number of enthusiastic treaties on
the use of marihuana in lovemaking. It seems pointless to discuss this
with your local doctor. Please note that excess use of hashish and
marihuana could result in impotence.
METAPHETAMINE (Perfetine) is a very powerful drug which removes all
sexual timidity in some people and releases with frightful fervour a
whole range of repressed sexual activities. The interest in fetishism,
sodomy, bisexuality, group sex and agression is thought to increase.
There are reports of a woman who changed from a frigid woman
into a woman who enjoyed being licked by a dog after she had been
treated with this drug. Likewise, a man took to paedophilic behaviour. A
heterosexual turned into a very promiscuous homosexual. Another man
went masturbating lying on the pavement and invited ladies passing to
go and sit on top of him. These drugs entice people into doing things
they would never have done before.
Both the hangover caused by
these substances and their susceptibility to abuse, together with the
impotence resulting from this, make amphetamines risky substances
NUTMEG has been used as an aphrodisiac in the Near East and India
since ages. Rumour has it that it is also used in prisons since nothing
else is available here. Formula: eat one spoonful of nutmeg. Something
like sexual excitement does indeed seem to take a hold over you. Next
thing you have a hangover which does not measure up to the pleasure you
got from the drug. It can make you very ill indeed. Not recommended
PAPAVERINE - One of the better documented penises in this world is
undoubtedly the one belonging to the London professor in physiology,
During a period of two years, he injected his
penis no fewer than 35 times with chemicals. He discovered that
papaverine, being a non habituating opium preparation, could cause
major erections, and reliable at that too. Brindley describes how his
erections would persist even during the lenght of extremely boring
phone calls and dull scientific labour. He deemed mere suggestion out
of the question.
Several urologists all over the world now use
papaverine to treat impotent patients with, and both doctors and
patients speak very favourably of it. It is to be expected that
papaverine shots will make an entrance in brothels before very long. It
doesn't increase the maximum number of orgasms one can have though.
Injecting people with papaverine could result in erections which last
six or seven hours on end. There is a story that it lasted 72 hours
with one person. Then the erection started to become a 'threat' to the
owner (blood vessels could have been damaged) and medical intervention
was necessary. Fortunately this is an exception. POPPERS (Amyl
nitrite). Poppers have a good reputation in homosexual quarters. They
are used in medicine when cardial problems exist. They are said to
intensify orgasms, making them brief but intense and sometimes to
lengthen duration of them. It is also claimed that they relax the
orbicular muscle of the anus, highly appreciated by homosexuals. They
can be dangerous. SPANISH FLY - Rather than a fly this is a crushed
South European beetle (Cantharides). Spanish Fly is a dangerous drug
when taken in the quantity needed to arouse sexual passion. The results
claimed can be attributed to the fact that this drug caused an
infection of the urinary passages, which is accompanied by a burning
In 1954, an English office clerk wanted to seduce two
female colleagues and offered them icecream which he had 'fortified'
with Spanish Fly. However the ladies showed little interest in sex:
both of them died. The clerk was accused of manslaughter. He confessed
and was sentenced to five years imprisonment.
Cantharides is also used in a strongly diluted solution in homeopathie. As a sex drug it is too dangerous.
TESTOSTERONE is a hormone which is produced by both sexes but much
more in males. Some impotent men do not have enough testosterone of
their own which rationalizes the decision to give them some extra.
Opinions vary as to whether healthy men are able to derive pleasure out
of extra testosteron; some say they are, others deny.
former German Democratic Republic a highly placed scientist claimed
that homosexuality is caused by a lack of male sex hormones during
pregnancy. He was investigating the possibility of injecting pregnant
women with this hormone and adding extra testosterone. By doing this,
he wanted to prevent more homesexuals from being born. Why this was
necessary, he couldn't explain.
YOHIMBINE is extracted from the West African Coryanthe Yohimbe tree and has been used as an aphrodisiac since ages.
Yohimbine is said to cause erections and tinglings in the pelvis and
send warm shivers down the spine and to enhance pleasure from sexual
intercourse and orgasm in both sexes.
Yohimbine was in fact proven a stimulant of sexual motivation with
laboratory animals. Rats of which the genitals had been anaesthetized
displayed increased mating activities when injected with Yohimbine,
although they did not really feel anything in the genital parts!
Scientists considered this proof enough that Yohimbine is a stimulant
of 'sexual motivation'. There have been several experiments with people
and from these we can conclude that Yohimbine is of assistance to
impotent men in 20% of the cases. This figure does not seem very
impressive until you become a case yourself. The effects of swallowing
Yohimbine are apparent only after two to three weeks. There are a lot
of side effects when Yohimbine is taken in large doses.
Therefore it should not be used without a doctors supervision, if
you can find one who knows anything about the subject. In the United
States a girl of sixteen had to be in hospital for 36 hours after
Yohimbine had become available in the streets; she had fallen ill after
taking a quarter of a gramme of Yohimbine.
