I mean this literally. It’s not just that tongkat ali is a revolutionary treatment in that it does what no other pharmaceutical or herbal medication does: which is, to increase the body’s own synthesis of testosterone.
Tongkat ali has further implications.
Ergot is a fungus causing disease in grain. Minimal amounts are poisonous to humans. Consumed by humans in below-fatal quantities, it causes a rather violent kind of mental disturbances, accompanied by hallucinations and hyperactivity.
LSD, of course, is an ergot derivate, and so are the pharmaceuticals bromocriptine and cabergoline. Bromocriptine and cabergoline can also be used for sexual enhancement but this is not the topic of this article.
The theory of the role of ergot in 1789 is that then, not only did many people die of ergot poisoning, but, furthermore, too many people got sub-lethal dosages of the poison, and subsequently went on a rampage: the start of the French Revolution.
But the tongkat ali revolution will be something else. Though tongkat ali can cause aggressiveness, it’s unlikely that it will make people storm prisons. The predominant effect is that they become much more sexual.
I started on the sexual enhancement train some 15 years ago, in the mid-1990s, when I was in my early 40s and sex just wasn’t anymore what it used to be. Now I am close to 60, and sex is again, and still, what it was in my 20s.
Actually, sex is now better than it was in my 20s. My potency is the same, but I am now sexually much more literate, and this means that I am more in control of when I lose control.
And it’s not Viagra that I credit for this success, though I did use Viagra for a few years. But testosterone-driven erections are far superior to Viagra-engineered erections.
For me, and a good number of other men, Viagra, while indeed having the effect it is prescribed for, also clearly interferes with the quality of orgasms. (This is, by the way, an effect it shares with the old erection boaster yohimbe.)
I am not in the adult film industry. I am also not a stud for hire. Primarily, I have erections for pleasure… my own pleasure. If I were to have a choice between erections without sexual pleasure, and sexual pleasure without erections, I would go for the latter, as I can have an orgasm without an erection, while without sexual arousal, I will not achieve an orgasm even if I do have an erection.
But actually, thanks to tongkat ali, I do not have to choose. I can have it both, or rather, all: the erection, the sexual arousal, and the orgasm, and I can do so twice or three times a day, for weeks on end.
Typically, I interrupt tongkat ali usage for a week after two weeks of usage, but in me the effect stays on a few days. But some people actually have the greatest effect during the off-cycle, which surprisingly also makes sense. Why? Because an elevated level of any hormone, including testosterone, is to produce its antitode to achieve a genetically age-related homeostasis. In some people, the this antidote synthesis as a result of tongkat ali-induced elevated testosterone levels overshoots its target. If then the tongkat ali is taken off the diet, the antidote synthesis will undershoot. Either way, the key to success with tongkat ali is in doing cycles. The effects on tongkat ali cycles on testosterone is like the effect of hot and cold showers on blood circulation. It’s a wake-up therapy.
So, what effect does tongkat ali have precisely?
Well, after almost 15 years of usage, for me when I’m on an on-cycle, I could not walk down a city street for a 100 meters without at least once or twice going on a short imagination trip involving a woman I encounter.
You know what I imagine!
And the woman doesn’t have to be young or beautiful. She just has to be a woman.
I look at a woman, and I find myself wondering whether she had sex last evening. I find myself imagining how she reacts the moment she has a climax. I find myself contemplating what position, and precisely what sexual practice, she probably prefers.
And I go day-dreaming how we would approach each other, and admit to each other that we both need it.
Well, sometimes the ideas that force themselves onto me a more daring, much more daring. And often, whether daring or just standard, my day-dreaming is accompanied by an erection, just as it was when I was in my 20s, or better even, when I was a teenager.
It wasn’t like that before I started with regular tongkat ali use, and for me it’s not like that during an off-cycle (when I turn sexually sluggish).
So, what revolution can tongkat ali cause? Put simply, the hope is that when more people are highly sexualized, there will be a groundswell to do away with ever more sexual restrictions.
And not only men, but women too, should go on tongkat ali cycles (with lower dosages, though). For testosterone is the hormone of sexual desire, both in men and women. And the tongkat ali revolution will need a majority of people to succeed.
