The effects of kratom are wide ranging and very intriguing to say the least. Some of the most interesting of those effects are related to sex drive and performance. Being that these are two of my favorite topics, I’m uber excited to discuss the up and down relationship between kratom and sex.
Some herbs have a reputation for their libido enhancing qualities. Yohimbe, Horny Goat Weed (why not?), and Tongkat Ali come to mind. When it comes to giving Mr. Happy added incentive to uhh … stand up and shout … kratom has a little of that going for it, as I learned in my early experiences.
Sex on kratom was something I just kinda fell into. It was during my rookie season and ironically around the time I actually started getting good results with the herb. First time out was spontaneous – and a bomb right out the park! Instantly, I was confident that I had extracted yet another benefit from this amazing plant! Specifically, kratom gave me considerably more stamina and some extra “umph” in the stroke game. I guess you can blame this on its remarkable stimulant properties. Life is good at this point.
I was so impressed with kratom’s sexual enhancement qualities that I recommended it to my Dad, who had positive outcomes as well. But then the tide started to shift. Kratom has a kinda numbing effect, which can be good when you’re in pain and need of relief. Not so much when you’re trying to be Mr. Lover Man. The first issue I experienced was being so numb that Mr. Happy lost the sensitivity needed to fully enjoy the experience. In order words, I just couldn’t reach the finish line, and with Mrs. Happy not necessarily being a fan of the marathon, I started throwing in the towel, like “fuck it!”
A Real Downer
Lasting too long is a drag, but not necessarily a deal breaker, right? But then there’s that numbing thing, this time working in the other direction. Apparently kratom can make Mr. Happy feel a little too comfortably numb. Like he doesn’t wanna come out and play at all. “My mind is telling me yes … but my body … my body is tellin’ me nooooo!” Done in my R. Kelly voice for shits and giggles, but needless to say, this turn of events led to some very disappointing moments.
So that was my experience in a nutshell – minus all the frustration and “Why God? Why?!” stuff. That’s coming from a male perspective, though. What do women have to say about kratom and sex? Turns out it’s a little of the same – on both sides of the coin. I’ve heard accounts from ladies who say kratom makes them extra randy in the bedroom, boasting the type of performances you might associate with amphetamine. I’ve also heard from those who say kratom literally sucks the drive right out of them. It takes two to tango and get pleasantly tangled, so if she ain’t in the mood, it ain’t happening – whether you’re ready to rock and roll or not.
Sex-Friendly Strains and Solutions
I found it very strange how kratom could be so two-faced. Then after more experimentation and experience with the herb, I began to connect some of the things I learned about different varieties. Some strains are more stimulating and energetic. Others are more sedating and relaxing. The former theory proved to be true in trial runs with Green Hulu Kapuas. I’ve found that this particular strain of kratom consistently acts as both an aphrodisiac and enhancer in that it not only sustains sex drive, it increases it and provides an encouraging lift its cousin Yohimbe would be proud of.
As someone with a healthy obsession for both sex and kratom, I had to find a happy medium. The answer to my problem was a two-part solution. They say there’s a natural equivalent to every man-made drug, and on cue, I found some viable alternatives to Viagra in herbs. The aforementioned Yohimbe is part of an herbal stack that has never failed me. In fact, it’s so effective, you have to tread carefully with dosing because too much can be strenuous on the heart – like fatally. A little goes a long way here, so take it easy you animals!
The second part just comes down to timing. If I have bumpin’ and grindin’ in mind, I’m very conscious about when I dose to make sure it’s not too close to go time. Timed just right, it’s possible to enjoy those euphoric bodily sensations kratom has been known to produce right as your in the … on the tail end of your session. In this case, the use of additional herbs can be an enhancer, or a backup plan if you don’t have timing quite down to the tee.
Love kratom but fear its chill qualities are caging the animal within you? Parking your sexual appetite a little too close to the curb? Don’t fret. Took some playing around, but with some sound strategy, I’ve learned that I can indeed have my cake and eat it too. So can you!
Don’t be shy. If you have some insight on the topic of kratom and sex, feel free to share it in a comment. The book on kratom is still being written and it’s up to us to write every chapter – even the steamy parts!
