On our English pages, you often see the word "relationships". This is just sanitized language. On our English pages, "relationships" refers to what couples, when not sleeping, do in bed. Or, if so inclined, on the kitchen table.

English is a rather hypocritical language. Many words for natural bodily functions and processes have dirty connotations, and polite speakers like us have to go to considerable length to communicate meanings without naming them. But we nevertheless hope you get the point.


Tongkatali.org's Asia, Africa, or Latin America


By Serge Kreutz


Assuming you have decided to pursue relationships exploits in the Third World, either because you have been convinced by my work, or for other reasons.

The first thing you want to get right is your choice of an appropriate continent. The criteria that reigns supreme is: where will you have the best relationships?

Many North Americans choose Latin America, mostly because it's near. You can drive your car to Mexico.

I am German, not American. But even for me, Mexico is too near. A North American or a Western European who lives in Mexico, or, for that matter, anywhere in Latin America, blends in very well. If you don't dress too well, you can walk down the street an people who don't know you have no way of knowing whether you are a local or not.

This is in sharp contrast to Africa or Asia. If you are a white European or American male, and if you hunt for relationships adventures in Asia or Africa, than it is very clear on first sight that you are not a local.

For matters of personal security, this can be disadvantageous. You are much easier to be sorted out as a target, both for politically and criminally motivated violence.

On the other hand, as your appearance is so totally different from that of local men, it is much easier to become an object of admiration for local girls and women.

I can't have a relationships relationship with a girl or woman who is just after being paid, and apart from that considers me a piece of male shit.

I don't mind granting a girl or woman some economic benefits from sleeping with me. But I want to be sure that if I were to propose a marriage to her, or just a long-term relationship, she would jump at the opportunity without thinking twice.

Yes, I am a spoiled brat. A modern-day White Raja. Or just an alpha male.

No, you can never enjoy this degree of exclusiveness in Latin America.



Tongkatali.org - Emotions are just biochemistry


By Serge Kreutz


That goes for orgasms and libido, just as it goes for happiness and sadness, love and pain, and all stages of awareness. It’s all very chemical, with hormones and neurotransmitters the main players. Sensual input and emotional output are an overlay, through which neurobiochemistry communicates with the outside world.

It’s in our genetic constellation that certain biochemical states appear pleasant and others don’t. There is a wide range of variation, as some people even consider certain manifestations of pain, including suffocation, as erotic, and others have a very limited capacity for love.

There are, in principle, two methods by which we can interfere with our brain chemistry.

Either pharmacologically, via the supply of chemicals, or non-pharmacologically.

Good non-pharmacological methods are many forms of sexual activity, other pleasurable endeavors, from food to music, thrills like skiing or rock climbing, physical exhaustion by running or biking, or hypnosis and meditation. The purpose of all the above is the endogenous release of neurochemicals that make us feel good.

On the other side of the strata are chemicals that directly induce positive feelings, of which opiates are the best example. On the right opiates, one feels good whatever one’s actual condition. Philosophically, opiates are one of the greatest achievements of mankind, as they allow us to engineer a gentle death.

And then, there is a wide range of possible pharmaceutical interferences with our existence that do not make us feel good directly but enhance our natural potential to feel good. Sildenafil citrate, tongkat ali, marijuana, yohimbe, and dopaminergics, even though they are very different one from the other, all are used because they enhance our potential to feel good on the sexual route. Testosterone and tongkat ali have effects on the male physique, and can make users feel better when looking into a mirror.

That governments regulate some of these substances has nothing to do with how useful they are for the individual. It’s also not that governments prohibit substances out of concern for the health of their citizens. If that were the case, alcohol would have been banned long ago. Substances are banned for a complex constellation of ideas on the part of those who have the power to decide, and many of the ideas are simply false.

The bottom line is: that some substances make us feel good by intervention with brain chemistry speaks in their favor, not against them.


Is yohimbine a MAO inhibitor?


By Serge Kreutz


Are yohimbe and/or yohimbine MAO inhibitors? There seems to be a fair bit of confusion. The confusion is caused by the fact that while yohimbe and yohimbine are not MAO inhibiting in the same manner as drugs used expressively as MAO inhibitors (see list at the end of this article), there indeed seems to be some influence on MAO activity.

Ellen Coleman, RD, MA, MPH, claims on the Health Care Reality Check web site (quoted August 19, 1999):

“Yohimbine is a monoamine oxidase inhibitor which means that tyramine containing foods (red wine, liver, cheese) and nasal decongestants or diet aids containing phenylpropaanolamine should be rigorously avoided if it is used to prevent a hypertensive crisis.”

While the Health Care Reality Check web site is dedicated to the noble task of protecting consumers from quacks who will sell anything as remedy against any condition as long as it earns them a buck, they exaggerated their reporting on yohimbe and yohimbine:

“According to the FDA, documented health hazards include low blood pressure, weakness, and nervous stimulation, followed by paralysis, fatigue, stomach disorders, kidney failure, seizures and death. The FDA has declared yohimbine unsafe and ineffective for over the counter sale.”

This is simply wrong. Yohimbine may not be an over-the-counter medication. But yohimbine is a FDA-approved prescription drug. If it were inappropriate, the FDA approval would be withdrawn. And as far as “documented health hazards” are concerned, well, death, and a variety of diseases leading to it, are documented health hazards for many antibiotics. And like antibiotics, yohimbine is useful in spite of documented health hazards associated with it.

But the topic of this article is yohimbe / yohimbine and MAO inhibition.

Monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibition is a profound physiological event, definitely not something to be overlooked in the description of any medication. Chairman MAO is an enzyme present in various parts of the body, primarily in the digestive system and the central nervous system. Its function is the deamination of foods and neurotransmitters.

The crucial impact of monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitors is related to this parallel occurrence of monoamines in food and catecholamine neurotransmitters such as dopamine, epinephrine (adrenaline), and norepinephrine (noradrenaline). If the action of the MAO enzyme is interrupted, the breakdown of these catecholamine neurotransmitters is hindered. This is wished for in the treatment of Parkinson’s, a disease characterized by a depletion of dopamine.

MAO inhibitors are “dangerous” medications because they not only inhibit the breaking down of monoamine neurotransmitters but also can interfere with the deamination of monoamines in the digestive tract. If then, monoamines make their way past the digestive tract they can start acting in the same manner as neurotransmitters, primarily norepinephrine, on a number of physiological functions, especially blood pressure. A combination of MAO inhibiting drugs with many ordinary foods that contain tyramines is a sure recipe for hypertensive shock and death.

Usually, red wine, chocolate, and cheeses are given as examples of foods containing tyramines, but tyramines can occur in many other foods as well. Also, the tyramine content of foods is difficult to predict. The content of tyramines in many foods tends to increase with storage. In a fresher state, many different kinds of food have a lower (or insignificant) content of tyramines, while after having been stored for some time, the contents of tyramines are higher. There are very long and explicit lists on tyramine contents in specific foods, compiled for patients who have to take MAO inhibitors to control Parkinson’s.

Obviously, the above is not a complete characterization of chairman MAO and MAO inhibitors. For example, we have not discussed the difference between MAO-A and MAO-B, as well as the effects of MAO on behavior (low levels of MAO are associated with criminal behavior as well as with a polygamous lifestyle). Nevertheless, the above may already give the reader an idea why it is very unlikely that with a prescription medication such as yohimbine, there wouldn’t be an explicit warning if it were a MAO inhibitor.

Yohimex is one of several brands of yohimbine tablets sold in the US. Yohimex is a prescription drug with 5.4 milligram of yohimbine hydrochloride as the active ingredient, manufactured by Jones Medical Industries in Canton, OH 44702, and distributed by Kramer Laboratories in Miami FL 33174. As Yohimex is a prescription drug, it had to be reviewed by the FDA. It’s hard to believe that if yohimbine were indeed a definite MAO inhibitor, a specific note on the subject matter would be missing from the brochure accompanying every bottle of Yohimex.

Alas, the package literature contains no reference claiming that yohimbine would be a MAO inhibitor. The package literature has the following to say about the clinical pharmacology of yohimbine hydrochloride:

“Yohimbine blocks presynaptic alpha-2 adrenergic receptors. Its action on peripheral blood vessels resembles that of reserpine, though it is weaker and of short duration. Yohimbine’s peripheral autonomic nervous system effect is to increase parasympathetic (cholinergic) and decrease sympathetic (adrenergic) activity. It is to be noted that in male relationships performance, erection is linked to cholinergic activity and to alpha-2 adrenergic blockade which may theoretically result in increased penile inflow, decreased penile outflow or both. Yohimbine exerts a stimulating action upon the mood and may increase anxiety. Such actions have not been adequately studied or related to dosage although they appear to require higher doses of the drug”.

No word on MAO inhibition. The Mosby RxList website also does not mention yohimbine as MAO inhibitor.

(Reserpine is a white to yellowish powder isolated from the roots of certain species of Rauwolfia and used as a sedative and an antihypertensive.)

Well, yohimbine and yohimbe are not exactly the same. Yohimbe is the raw tree bark, and yohimbine is just one of its active ingredients that has been extracted. Even if yohimbine is not a MAO inhibitor, it may still be the case that yohimbe is.

We have seen a number of web sites that claim that either yohimbine or yohimbe is a MAO inhibitor, or that yohimbine isn’t but yohimbe is.

However, we haven’t seen any conclusive study on yohimbe and MAO inhibition. If yohimbe were a strong and definite MAO inhibitor, one would have to expect fatalities if the usual precautions against tyramine-containing foods were not heeded. Any herb that functioned as a definite MAO inhibitor would long ago have been classified as a poison. But yohimbe has been sold as a supplement for years. If incidences of death would have occurred after ingesting yohimbe because of yohimbe being a MAO inhibitor, it’s unlikely this fact would not be reported widely. Alas, there are no widely circulating reports of yohimbe causing deaths because of its effects as MAO inhibitor.

Sure, yohimbe and yohimbine cause side effects, which could be interpreted as an effect of MAO inhibition, mainly nervousness. But yohimbe usually does not cause an increase in blood pressure.

A safe assessment is that even if both yohimbine and yohimbe are not definite MAO inhibitors, they shouldn’t be taken together with MAO inhibitors. I would add that people who are on MAO inhibition medication are anyway not physically well enough to take an additional leisure medication as strong as yohimbe or yohimbine.

Now, while yohimbe and yohimbine are not MAO inhibitors to the extent in which the term “MAO inhibitor” is pharmacologically understood, there is nevertheless some correlation between yohimbine and MAO activity.

It has been documented that yohimbine is an anxiogenic agent, a substance that can induce anxiety in humans and other higher animals. The Yohimex package literature states: “Yohimbine exerts a stimulating action upon the mood and may increase anxiety. Such actions have not been adequately studied or related to dosage although they appear to require higher doses of the drug.”

Anxiety is the missing link between yohimbine / yohimbe and MAO inhibition, and it points to a possible explanation why yohimbine / yohimbe act as aphrodisiacs, apart from facilitating erections.

In 1996, a study on the effects of some anxiogenic agents on brain monoamine oxidase inhibitory activity was conducted at the Department of Pharmacology, Banaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India (Bhattacharya SK; Chakrabarti A; Sandler M; Glover V). The study was done on rats, not on humans, as it involved dosages of yohimbine far too high to be used for relationships stimulation. The study came to the conclusion that in a state of anxiety induced by a sufficiently high dosage of yohimbine, there has been a noticeable increase of MAO-inhibitory activity without specific MAO-inhibitory pharmaceutical agents having been added.

This is of course not surprising as in any stress situation, there will likely be increased epinephrine (adrenaline) activity in any higher animal. Epinephrine activity in the body is regulated twofold: as secretion and as deactivation through chairman MAO. Additional secretion and inhibition of deamination by chairman MAO have comparative effects: an increased epinephrine level, with the typical stress-related symptoms.

A reasonable hypothesis regarding the aphrodisiac properties of yohimbe and yohimbine would probably have to consider the effect of the bark and its active ingredient on the neurotransmitter dopamine. While the usual aim of any treatment with MAO inhibitors is to raise levels of dopamine to control Parkinson’s disease, it has been noted that raised dopamine levels normally also bring about relationships agitation.

The link between dopamine and relationships urge is so strong that scientific studies have been undertaken to check to what extent measurable dopamine levels correlate to relationships perversion (paraphilic disorder).

A 1995 research on “Dopamine and relationships behavior” at the Bernard B. Brodie Department of Neuroscience, University of Cagliari, Italy, came to the following result: “Despite some differences, most studies show that treatments that increase or decrease, respectively, brain dopaminergic activity improve or worsen, respectively, several parameters of copulatory activity, supporting a facilitatory role of dopamine in male relationships behavior.”

And a 1997 study at the Harvard Medical School in Boston on “A monoamine hypothesis for the pathophysiology of paraphilic disorders” drew the following conclusion:

“A monoamine pathophysiological hypothesis for paraphilias in males is based on the following data: (i) the monoamines norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin are involved in the appetitive dimension of male relationships behavior in laboratory animals; (ii) data gathered from studying the side effect profiles of antidepressant psychostimulant, and neuroleptic drugs in humans suggest that alteration of central monoamine neurotransmission can have substantial effects on human relationships functioning, including relationships appetite; (iii) monoamine neurotransmitters appear to modulate dimensions of human and animal psychopathology including impulsivity, anxiety, depression, compulsivity, and pro/antisocial behavior, dimensions disturbed in many paraphiliacs; (iv) pharmacological agents that ameliorate psychiatric disorders characterized by the aforementioned characteristics, especially central serotonin enhancing drugs, can ameliorate paraphilic relationships arousal and behavior.”

The study refers to the well-known fact that many medications for Parkinson’s disease, which all aim to increase levels of dopamine, have an increased relationships appetite as a common side effect. Many, but not all Parkinson’s medications are MAO inhibitors. If scientific studies were to be undertaken on any aphrodisiac effect of yohimbine or yohimbe (apart from their well-documented effect of making better erections), they would have to check on what effect yohimbine and yohimbe have on dopamine levels, either through MAO modulation or via any alternative pathway.

Tongkatali.org's Impotence or erectile dysfunction


By Serge Kreutz


Impotence is now medically referred to as erectile dysfunction. But impotence is more than just erectile dysfunction. It is lost maleness.

Impotence is a condition much more complicated than most diseases. Many diseases are single-cause conditions.

A specific virus causes the flu or hepatitis, and specific bacteria cause tuberculosis. Many other conditions are, by and large, single-symptom diseases. A broken bone, a cataract of the eye, or the shingles are easy to diagnose. There are clear symptoms that usually apply to just that health problem. Erectile dysfunction cannot be defined like this.

While “erectile dysfunction” has become the term of choice among doctors and educated patients, it’s probably less accurate a description of what’s wrong than the old word “impotence”. “Erectile dysfunction” is a technical term, and it sounds much less embarrassing than “impotence”.

But the general idea of lost maleness carried by the word “impotence” actually describes more precisely the implication of the condition discussed here. Impotence is more than just erectile dysfunction… it may or may not be a blood-vessel insufficiency. But it may also be a loss of desire regulated by a certain neurotransmitter balance. It may have hormonal or psychological causes, or it may be a problem of sympathetic and parasympathetic nerve impulses. Erectile dysfunction, a lack of erection, is just a part of the condition impotence. Assuring an appropriate blood pressure in the male relationships organ does not solve the problem. That’s why erection injections and erection pumps (see youtube here) are not satisfactory by themselves. An erection without desire is a waste of effort (and money), and desire without the capability of a definite orgasm results in frustration rather than satisfaction.


Tongkatali.org's The Kreutz food philosophy is a oral aroma therapy


By Serge Kreutz


Have you ever observed the flow of your thoughts when your mouth holds delicious food?

There is a direct link from your taste buds to your mental state.

It is not just that delicious food tastes good. It feels good.

Delicious food in the mouth is a powerful anti-depressant. It alleviates clinical and sub- clinical mental problems better than prescription drugs.

Delicious tastes in the mouth generate optimism and a positive outlook to one’s life in the future.

Beyond that, delicious food in the mouth is a powerful smart drug. When you do creative work, or study, you do this much better when it is accompanied by delicious tastes in the mouth.

This is why chocolate, for example, makes people intelligent. No, it’s not the theobromine, it’s the effect of the taste on the brain.

But where to put all the calories from delicious food? Into your stomach? What a burden for your body!

My food philosophy is to differentiate what I put into my mouth from what I pass to my stomach. For simplicity I have named this food philosophy the Serge Kreutz diet.

I am all in favor of the stimulating effects of the many tastes of food.

But my stomach and my intestines and my liver all have no taste receptors. Taste receptors really are just in my mouth.

So why should I discard the bolus that forms in my mouth into my stomach? That doesn’t make much sense.

I discard it into a plastic bag.

This is all the more advisable as many of the carriers of delicious tastes have a negative effect on human organisms once they have passed the mouth.

Alcoholic drinks, some of which really have inspiring effects via their tastes (wine, most of all), are simply shit to digest.

Or take cheeses, those tyramine-lauded headache triggers.

Any excessive food is just a burden, and not just because of the obesity effect.

So, discard most of what you eat into plastic bags, not into your stomach. Or, as a catch phrase: spit it, don’t shit it.

You can call this “kreutzing food” if you want to credit me for the idea.

If you are a newcomer to kreutzing food, here some basic advice on technicalities.

Liquid food is, of course, easiest to kreutz.

Next are foods that liquefy well in the mouth, such as chocolate and soft cheeses.

Curries are also easy to kreutz. I cook them myself and play with their tastes for many hours on some days.

Because curries are so easy to variate, they are indeed one of the most suited foods for any oral aroma therapy. You don’t swallow, so it does not matter that many of the seeds and roots used in curries are bad intestinal irritants.

The worst food to kreutz is probably bread. Bread does not liquefy in the mouth, it just clumps. Compared to fluids, to discards bread into plastic bags feels messy.

Rice is also not ideal as a kreutzing staple because rice does not dissolve in the mouth. Even though the rice kernels are soft, they remain kernels and tend to stick between lips and the rows of teeth.

The best staple to give tastes volume are potatoes because they liquefy in the mouth (cook them soft).

Potatoes, for example, are ideal for kreutzing curries, and the combination is one of the best oral aroma therapy recipes.
