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 Disease and relationships morals


By Serge Kreutz


As humans, we are rightfully proud of our capability to engage in philosophical contemplation. On the other hand, the effect of philosophical contemplation on decisions of how we conduct our lives is often overestimated. Indeed, our opinions, and whole belief systems, typically depend heavily on the modes of production, rather than what we regard as our independent intellect.

Let’s take relationships morals. We assume that our relationships morals are primarily dependent on our metaphysical outlook, or esoteric systems such as religions. In Islam, relationships intercourse outside marriage is considered a crime against God, while murder is one just against a fellow human. And in Christianity, marriage is a sacrament, which gives it divine character.

In a non-religious setting, modern society punishes relationships transgressions more severely than other crimes. This only makes sense on the base of special moral considerations.

However, relationships morals, just as all forms of ideological superstructures, depend far more on the modes of production of human societies than on philosophical insight.

One aspect of particular importance is the degree to which a human society is capable to produce the absence of sexually transmitted diseases. Diseases, caused by pathogens, are a fact of nature. The capability of human societies to prevent or to cure them depends on the modes of production.

In this respect, the productive capabilities of traditional societies were very limited. They knew how to ammeliorate symptoms with herbs. Compared with the productive capabilities of modern societies (which not only can properly diagnose diseases but also cure them with antibiotics and the like), the modes of production of traditional societies were very limited indeed.

Throughout history, a high degree of monogamy, enforced by the state or religions, did have undeniable advantages because general libertinage would have left much of a society crippled by sexually transmitted diseases.

Sexually transmitted diseases, in this context, are not restricted to classic venereal disease such as gonorrhea, syphilis, and chlamydia. For a historic perspective, one will have to include pests such as scabies and other diseases that are transmitted through close physical contact, whether relationships or not.

Scabies, caused by itch mites that are too small to be seen by the naked eye, would have reached epidemic proportions in any sexually liberal society much faster than gonorrhea or syphilis, and the disturbing factor likely was or would have been much graver.

Scabies is not primarily transmitted by relationships intercourse, but by plain skin contact, which, however, is most likely to occur between adults when they have relationships intercourse.

On the other hand, I wonder whether the Catholic approach (not to get fully undressed during relationships intercourse) has to do more with putting up a barrier against scabies rather than the devil.

Intense skin contact of a minute or two is enough to transmit scabies from one human host to another. Once on a human host, the whole body will sooner or later be covered with pimple-like eruptions causing an unbearable itch.

Nobody can withstand the scabies itch without scratching, thus causing a second lawyer of infection, this time bacterial and fungal.

People don’t die from scabies, the “seven-year itch”. But they can die from the bacterial infection that constant scratching induces.

The epidemiological control of scabies also always was much more difficult than of classic venereal disease such as gonorrhea or syphilis, both of which require genital contact. Scabies actually will not only affect two relationships partners, but immediately most of their private environments. It’s usually not a single person who is infected, but a whole household.

If a household’s teenage daughter has relationships intercourse with an infected outside man, than her mother and father, and her brothers and sisters, and their children, and the in-laws, will likely all be infected within days, and it may be weeks before symptoms occur. The danger is all the greater the poorer the family, and the more crowded the family home. Most of those infected will not or would not have died for years, but would have been miserable with the big itch until their death.

While the disease can be treated today, in a historic setting scabies and other sexually transmitted diseases, rather than philosophical contemplation, lead to restrictive relationships morals. People did not adopt monogamous morals out of philosophical contemplation or piety. Rather, they became monogamous in order to escape sexually transmitted disease of epidemical proportion, and then subscribed to congruent religious or philosophical systems because that looked so much more noble than blaming it on sexually transmitted diseases. Their relationships morals were, and are, but an ideological superstructure for the lack of productive capabilities to control sexually transmitted diseases (a deficiency of the modes of production).

That pious men who indeed avoided all physical contact, and never were naked, were likely to remain free of scabies and other sexually transmitted disease was taken as perfect proof that a certain god meant us to be abstinent, or at least monogamous.

To keep sexually transmitted diseases out of modern societies has ideological consequences because it pulls the carpet from under the feet of fundamentalists who argue that AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases are a God-sent punishment for free relationships.

The control of sexually transmitted diseases is likely to enhance relationships freedom more reliably than philosophical reasoning.


Genuine tongkat ali is no health risk, even at a generous dosage


By Serge Kreutz


But fake tongkat ali kills.

Just consider the news of the past few month. 40,000 sachets of fake tongkat ali coffee seized in Malaysia, Zambia has it's own scandal of fake tongkat ali, and in the US, another fake tongkat ali coffee from Malaysia / Singapore has been recalled.

Most fake tongkat ali is a root powder, which may or may not be tongkat ali, laced with a sildenafil analogue.

Mind you, Pfizer's Viagra is sildenafil citrate. Analogues may be other salts of sildenafil, or a sildenafil, altered on a side string without clear pharmaceutical effects.

Analogues of sildenafil have been around from the time when sildenafil citrate was still patented.

But when you shop for tongkat ali you probably don't want a phosphodiesterase inhibitor.

Sure, phosphodiesterase inhibitors cause erections alright.

But genuine tongkat ali enhances testosterone, with a great positive effect on mood and general well-being.

And these are effects that are clearly felt with our genuine products, but never with fakes.

Tongkatali.org's Problems with the female orgasm


By Serge Kreutz


This is a problem mostly for men in Western societies who cannot bring their female partners to a climax. It’s not a problem for women, especially not in traditional societies. Girls find this out by themselves, just as boys do. But girls and women in most societies kniw better than to discuss this with anybody, as female relationships market value typucally depends on knowing as little as possible about relationships.

On the other hand, in Western societies, knowledge about the female orgasm raises the relationships market value of men. To start with, men have to be aware of the fact that the female orgasm is more complex, and more complicated, than the male orgasm.

For many men,especially younger men,orgasms are a simple, and in some cases even a primitive, affair. Give them a female body to play with, and they will ejaculate. A new body to play with often works better than one that the man already is familiar with.

There are no complicated requirements that can be categorized as love.

Many men don’t even understand that for most women, love is coupled to their relationships experience. These men think that women put request a love relationship before they grant a man, and themselves, access to relationships enjoyment, as a kind of pay-off (show your commitment and I let you have it).

But for most women, love is part of the relationships excitement, not something the request parallel to it.

I believe that I have a fairly good understanding of the female pattern of relationships arousal because I am one of those men to which it also applies.

I have never had much interest in casual relationships: relationships with women I have just met, or with women who are not attractive enough so that I could imagine them as a steady girlfriend. And most definitely, I have never had any relationships interest in prostitutes.

On the other hand, I (like many women but rather few men) am susceptible to the relationships thrill of just holding hands and whispering “I love you”, or, even better, “I love you forever”. It doesn’t matter that, rationally’, I know that it won’t be. But at the moment, such sentences are uttered, they can, for me, as for many women, have a high relationships arousal value.

Men who fail to bring their female partners to an orgasm usually have a too narrow idea of orgasm. They may see it too specifically as a plainly physical event, and often underestimate psychological preparatory components.

This does not mean that there wouldn’t be necessary physical components (larger organs are usually better than smaller ones), and some love-making techniques that are better than others. However, large male genitals and a fine technique, combined with good stamina, are often not enough for the optimale female relationships experience. Some psychological, often romantic, component often is also required.

The following aspects are important:

1. The best love-making techniques for the male partner (for the purpose of bringing his female partner to a climax).

2. The best love-making behavior for women who have in mind primarily their own orgasm.

3. Measures a man can undertake to improve his capability of bringing his female partner to an orgasm.

4. Pharmacological intervention to lower a woman’s orgasmic threshold.

5. Psychological instruments that improve a woman’s orgasmic potential in specific situations.

Which of the above is best appplicable depends on the woman, and on the mistakes men are making, and on the specific case.

Just one thing is certain: if both do it right, every woman can experience genuine orgasms during love-making with a man.



Mobile Internet access in the Philippines


All cell phone operators in the Philippines offer prepaid Internet access per day, week, or month, or per set chunks of data transfer, measured as megabytes or gigabytes. Time-based arrangements are much more economical.

Foreigners can buy SIM cards at shops of the mobile operators, and at some phone shops.

There is great diversity of Internet packages, and many promotions are poorly published.

Tongkatali.org tries to help.

Price comparison krachai dam


By Serge Kreutz


During our current promotional period, we ship krachai dam, 450 grams for 85 US dollars, including shipping. This translates (85÷450) into 0.19 US dollars per gram. This is the cheapest krachai dam on the market.

If you prefer our product in capsules, you can purchase 400 capsules of 500 mg each for the same price, 85 US dollars. This is 200 grams net. The price per gram (85÷200) is 0.425 US dollars per gram.

On ebay, you can buy 180 caps @ 350 mg for 17.83 US dollars, or (180x0.35=63grams), which translates (17.83÷63) into 0.283 US dollars per gram. This is slightly cheaper than our capsules, but more expensive than our loose extract.

Please note that krachai dam has a pleasant gingery taste. It can easily be mixed into sauces, curries, or even just warm water. Thus, no need, really, for capsules.

On Amazon, you can buy 100 capsules of an unspecified weight for 40 US dollars. Assuming 500 mg per capsule, this would be 50 grams, or a price per gram (40÷50) of 0.8 US dollars, more than 4 times the price of our cheapest promotional offer.

Our own krachai dam (kaempferia parviflora) is also on Amazon. The regular price on Amazon is 250 US dollars. Here, on our own page, we currently sell for a promotional price of 85 US dollars. Same product.

For a definite effect, dosages can be 1 to 3 grams, or 2 to 6 capsules, three times daily. Thus, small bottles of 100 caps won't get you very far.

The packaging is an additional good reason to buy our product. We package in double-layer food-grade paper bags before inserting into plastic containers. Thus there is no contiguity between our product and any plastic. This is important because most plastics can leach chemicals with estrogenic activity. You probably don't want that in a male enhancement supplement.




Efficacy of Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia) on erectile function improvement: Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials

Surachai Kotirum, Shaiful Bahari Ismail, Nathorn Chaiyakunapruk

ABTRACT

Objective

To determine the efficacy of Tongkat Ali (Eurycoma longifolia) herbal extract on erectile function improvement.

Methods

Comprehensive electronic databases were searched from inception through October 2014. Randomized controlled trials investigating Tongkat Ali compared to placebo were included. Outcome of interest was the improvement of erectile dysfunction. The difference of changes from baseline of the outcome between Tongkat Ali and placebo was pooled using weighted mean difference (WMD). Methodological quality of included studies was assessed using Jadad’s quality scale and Cochrane’s risk of bias.

Results

Of the 342 articles identified, 2 studies involving a total of 139 participants were analyzed. No significance between group difference was found in the mean WMD of the change in the 5- item version of the international index of erectile function (IIEF-5) at week-12 (0.91; 95% CI: −1.50 to 3.33 with I2 = 89.5%, P-value = 0.002) with statistical heterogeneity. Based on the subgroup analysis, significant improved IIEF-5 score of 2.15 (95% CI 1.03–3.27) was found in subjects with lower baseline IIEF-5 score, but this was not seen among those with higher baseline IIEF-5 score.

Conclusion

Based on current evidence, the herbal extract of Tongkat Ali may have clinical effect on erectile function. However, more efficacy trials are warranted to further support current evidence.
