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 The relationships-market-value dilemma


By Serge Kreutz


In rich Western societies, the decline of the relationships market value of men and women who get older is a dilemma.

People who get older naturally long for a society in which this is not a handicap. The concern is reflected in relationships-negative feminism, which can be understood as trade unionism of less competitive women who aim to protect their relationships market value.

The desire to redefine social hierarchies of attractiveness also drives Salafist movements. Male children of Muslim immigrants in Europe sense their placement on the low end of the attractiveness scale, as even their sisters dream of princes that are firmly rooted in Western culture.

Social climbing is only a temporary solution, for male children of Muslim immigrants, and for anybody getting older.

A more profound solution, in the case of ageism, are societies in which age is a minor factor.

Poor but tolerant societies, for example. As long as there is a dire need for economic support within families, the age-related unattractiveness of support-givers wanes as a factor determining relationships market value.

Thus, whether male or female, there is a rationale to get out of rich Western societies, and be rich in a Third World country.

For males, societies with irrational metaphysical foundations, such as religions, offer a possibility to be attractive mates in spite of advancing age.

In societies with archaic religious structures, relationships market value depends on many factors other than the physical attractiveness or the age of a man.

Aging women, on the other hand, have good reason for not being comfortable with such archaic structures. For aging women, extreme feminism and legal constraints on opportunity-seeking men are viable strategies to protect their own relationships market value in spite of advancing age.


Tongkatali.org - What to do: Nature, our enemy


By Serge Kreutz


Nature is the principle enemy of our individual lives. It’s not that I would prefer asphalt landscapes over trees and flowers. It’s also not that I would view as enemy nature in the form of lions and tigers. The expression of nature that I consider as enemy is not the nature that surrounds us but the nature within.

Nature has genetically programmed us as individuals to leave the scene after some meager one hundred years, while we could just as well be genetically programmed to have individual lives of thousands of years.

Nature has programmed us to physically decline after having reached an early peak in our twenties. Nature has decided for a quick turnover rate for humans (though it’s not quite as short as the turnover rate for rats and cats).

Nature has installed in us an instrument of cognition, which is inadequate because its primary function is not cognition, but to give us a competitive edge in the fight for the survival of the fittest.

As good as I can, I try to overcome the limitations nature has programmed for me. I am not interested in being a tool of nature (that fascist force) for the creation of more optimized specimens of the human species. I can’t see any other purpose in life but to be concerned with my own life. This means, to live as long as possible, and to get as much as possible out of life.

I’m aware of the limitations that still apply to me. One day, individual humans will live thousands of years, or in fact, indefinitely. Having been born a few hundred years too early, I will not be among them.

I’m not even independent enough from nature to elect freely not to live any longer, and to act upon this choice by putting my life to a decent end, right now.

Instead I am but a slave to nature in my instinctive but ridiculous fear of death. I’m toiling along, like billions of other humans, caught in lives in which happiness is but an illusion, and in which only suffering is real. Because this is how nature, our enemy, has designed it to be. But we shall overcome (not me, but later generations).


Tongkat ali, mucuna pruriens (velvet beans), testosterone, and dopamine


By Serge Kreutz


Natural Dopaminergic Research, 2019


I started with relationships enhancement some 30 years ago. My first attempts were with amino acids, and my first successes with yohimbe.

My next phase were dopaminergics. I have written extensively about the use of dopaminergics in relationships enhancement.

Before, after, and in between the above, I had tried, off and on, all kinds of hormonal therapies. I didn't have any success with them.

I have been using only a combination of tongkat ali and cheap Indian sildenafil citrate (generic Viagra).

This doesn't mean that I would have turned against yohimbine and dopaminergics. These medications do work (though I recommend dopaminergic velvet beans in a stack with mildly dopaminergic tongkat ali, rather then dopaminergic pharmaceuticals). But they all work in different ways. And I assume that it lies in the dialectical nature of our sexuality that all relationships enhancement medications loose some of their kick as we get used to them. Just as routine can be a grave for relationships excitement, routinely used relationships enhancement medications tend to loose their effectiveness.

I mentioned that relationships enhancement medications like dopaminergics, hormones, or tongkat ali work in different ways. First of all, one has to differentiate between medications that work on penile plumbing and those that work on the neurological wiring.

Erectile failure in most cases is a localized vascular problem: blood vessels have to supply a sufficient amount of blood to the corpora cavernosa and the corpus spongiosum, and drainage has to be avoided. This is all rather mechanical, and it can be achieved pharmacologically either by sildenafil citrate or yohimbine, or generous dosages of krachai dam in a tongkat ali stack. Krachai dam is a low-affinity phosphodiesterase inhibitor.

When Viagra was not available yet, yohimbine was the only oral drug to specifically treat erectile shortcomings. Another option was injectable prostaglandin E1 (alprostadil). Alprostadil is now available as cream.

Other medications were (and are) useful for relationships enhancement only when there were (or are) no erectile but only neurological relationships problems. If the problem is vascular, no dose of a libido enhancer will induce an erection.

A large number of people are not sufficiently aware of the duality of penile plumbing and neurological wiring. And except for yohimbine, there is no relationships enhancement medication that would work on both components.

Yohimbine does, as the adrenalin which yohimbine displaces from abdominal alpha-2 adrenergic receptors (which, among other things, regulate penile blood flow) reoccur systemically as neurological stimulant.

However, the strong sympathetic impulse caused by systemic adrenaline (in the form of norepinephrine) makes it difficult for the parasympathetic nerve system to take over at the point of orgasm, which, with regular usage of yohimbine, makes for weak ejaculations and orgasms that are no match for the pre-orgasmic excitement. Also, side effects are much worse than with tongkat ali.

But relationships with a firm erection aided by yohimbine is still better than no erection, which normally means: no proper relationships.

Therefore, Viagra (and generic sildenafil citrate), or any other medication that fixes penile plumbing, is a necessity for many men above 40, and for most above 50 or 60.

And only when there are no plumbing problems do other medications (those that work on libido) become relevant.

By and large, there are two groups of pharmaceutical agents that work on libido: those that effect neurotransmitters, and those that target the endocrine (hormonal) system. I say "by and large" because the two systems are intertwined. Drugs that elevate the neurotransmitter dopamine (dopaminergic pharmaceuticals or velvet beans, mucuna pruriens) also suppress the hormone prolactin. Prolactin not only regulates lactation in women but also keeps testosterone in check in men and women. Typically, less prolactin means more testosterone. Furthermore, some hormones can act as neurotransmitters and vice versa; norepinephrine, C8H13NO3, is both a hormone and a neurotransmitter.

The neurotransmitter system reacts much faster than the hormonal system, and you feel this when you take pharmacological agents, or dopaminergic food like velvet beans that act on it. When an effective dosage of any neurotransmitter modifying medications kicks in, you feel it. With most dopaminergics, there is a slight nausea, or at least a desire to lie down. And there is a clear window of opportunity for improved relationships, which usually is the first few hours during which a neurotransmitter drug is active (for apomorphine, this window of opportunity is the shortest; for cabergoline, it is the longest).

When you use neurotransmitters to improve relationships (even L-dopa from mucuna pruriens), you always know that you have taken something.

This is not the case with drugs or herbals like tongkat ali that work on the endocrine system, unless a huge overdose is consumed (for example when women take a testosterone dosage that was formulated for men). Usually, endocrine medications cannot be felt directly. Whether you use growth hormone injections, testosterone cream, Andriol capsules, Proviron, methyltestosterone, anastrozole, or clomiphene, and even with a tongkat ali stack that also incorporates butea superba, mucuna pruriens, and krachai dam, there is no clear onset, and now clear end-of-efficacy time.

In me and many other users, any testosterone-raising medication can cause an outburst of anger (if there is an event that triggers it). The outburst may happen after 2 hours, or after 4, or after 8 or not at all, if nothing happens that would give me reason to get angry. But let me drive a car in a Third World country where people typically do not follow any traffic rules, and not even traffic common sense! If I have taken testosterone-raising medications, I will have a harder time to keep my calm.

The case is similar, but still more erratic with libido. Medications that work on the endocrine system can be extremely sexualizing, but it is very hard to plan this effect. This also applies on a tongkat ali stack with butea superba, mucuna pruriens, and krachai dam.

You can have a relationships schedule when you take yohimbine or dopaminergics. I will reliably have an erection some one-and-one-half hours after ingesting some 10 to 20 mg of yohimbine. I just have to scratch my member, and voila, here we go.

Likewise, when on apomorphine, bromocriptine, cabergoline, or Thai mucuna pruriens, I will feel more excitement during intercourse than when in a sober state. The dopaminergics usually only exert their effect when already at it; at the dosages that I use, they do little for pre-intercourse desire. But Parkinson's patients who use much higher dosages, and do so constantly, often are in a constant state of relationships alert.

Viagra isn't as reliable for erections as yohimbine. When I take Viagra without dopaminergics (including mucuna pruriens) or endocrine agents (including tongkat ali), I may not have the libido impulse to cause a hard erection. I may just have an enlarged but still flaccid organ, and not much drive to pursue intercourse.

Tongkat ali is an endocrine agent, not a vascular modifier. Endocrine agents have a subtle effect on libido. To describe it, I have to reach back a few decades.

I remember the time when I was 12 or 13 years old. Often, before falling asleep, I could daydream along for half an hour or an hour, just imagining relationships scenarios. There was a girl, two or three years my senior, and heavy-bodied, and I imagined I were to abduct her to an old farmhouse, and lock her up, and just observe her through a peephole until she were to pee.

I could just recall this fantasy, night after night, and imagine and re-imagine explicit details, and the excitement wouldn't wane. Night after night, week after week. Never bored.

I could still get lost in masturbation fantasies until the end of my 20's, but in my 30's and 40's, they were no more. As I grew older, relationships moved from between the ears to between the groins. While at a younger age, erections came from imagination, they later required physical sensation.

Enter the tongkat ali.

What I first noticed was that during routine relationships with an established partner, my mind began wondering off to strange ideas. That I was a perverse school headmaster who would punish pupils arriving delayed by squeezing some private parts. Or that I was a cruel Chinese emperor with a harem of 1000 concubines. Those who couldn't bring me to orgasm would be executed. And I really had them work to save their lives. All of that during standard intercourse with a dear lady with whom I otherwise have a rather practical relationship.

Now, this has been going on for weeks. The settings of my fantasies change, but what remains the same is that I really can indulge in them for about half an hour, while at intercourse with a routine relationships partner who is completely absent from the scenario that I imagine.

This is how I feel tongkat ali's impact on my endocrine system. And I love it.

Or rather: this is how I feel a gram of the 1:200 extract from Sumatra Pasak Bumi. I had earlier tried other tongkat ali products, but their effect had been nondescript. Please see my article on tongkat ali dosage for what I consider effective and non-effective amounts.

Because tongkat ali is not a switch-on switch-off relationships stimulant, I believe it is best to take it on a daily basis for about two or three weeks, and then to rest it for about a week. I usually take it some time around noon, as a single 1-gram dosage. Initially I felt a specific hotheadedness after about an hour, but this effect has since subsided.

I cannot say that after 2 hours, or 4 hours, or even after 8 hours I would have great relationships. I cannot willfully switch it on. Great relationships on tongkat ali comes sporadic. Could be later in the day, or even just the next morning.

I always take the tongkat ali with sildenafil citrate (generic Viagra, 50 mg). I don't have the blood vessel stability to go without it. I tried, after another participant in our tongkat ali trial reported that the tongkat ali allows him to go without the Viagra, but when I left it out of my cocktail, my erection clearly wasn't of the usual sildenafil-aided quality.

By all indications, tongkat ali is a hormonal stimulant, and hormonal stimulants, including testosterone, have a weak track record when it comes to aiding erections. Tongkat ali is no exception.

I have a good number of girlfriends. I enjoy variation, and I do not intend to go without it, especially as it has taken me a lot of efforts to arrange everything in a manner that would allow me this lifestyle.

But I believe that the greatest benefit from tongkat ali will be enjoyed by people who are in a rather steady and monogamous relationship. If I have enough imagination, I don't need variation. As a matter of fact, my imaginations blossom brighter with a routine partner who knows my physical preferences and doesn't need verbal attention before or during intercourse. With a routine partner, I just can dive into an ocean of fantasies, without need to resurface for rather practical matters.

On the other hand, when on tongkat ali, the strangeness of a new partner, too, can be turned into relationships excitement. In that case it's not so much the indulging in fantasies but the idea of conscious role play. The roles may not be as weird as my fantasies with a routine partner, but they are still different from normal, sober life.

So, whatever the setting, tongkat ali clearly supports the imaginative part of relationships interaction.

Tongkat ali for a healthy prostate and higher testosterone levels


By Serge Kreutz


Testosterone replacement therapy makes prostate cancer definitely worse, and it has even been suspected that testosterone replacement therapy may cause prostate cancer in the first place.

Even when a men suffers from a non-cancerous prostate enlargement (benign prostate hypertrophy) many physicians hesitate to prescribe testostetone patches.

So, how about tongkat ali? Anyway, numerous studies have shown that tongkat ali increases testosterone.

So, is there a danger that tongkat ali may worsen prostate conditions?

Surprisingly, the opposite seems to be true. While tongkat ali hasn't been processed yet into a prostate medication or a prostate cancer cure, a string of recent studies has shown the effectiveness of tongkat ali against cancer cells.

And human studies have shown promising results for a possible treatment of benign prostate hyperplasia.

And all of this in spite of tongkat ali causing elevated testosterone.



Sumatra Pasak Bumi's Indonesian 1:200 tongkat ali extract more than doubled testosterone


Sumatra Pasak Bumi (main website tongkatali.org) has been selling its 1:200 Indonesian tongkat ali extract for testosterone increase for more than 20 years. We have done human studies (see below). Only 1:200 tongkat ali extract from us is genuine. All other so-called 1:200 tongkat ali extracts are simply fake.

Furthermore, only our 1:200 tongkat ali extract has undergone all the extensive testing to obtain a license as medicinal herb (Nomor Depkes) from the Indonesian government.

Safety lab report

While most users can increase their testosterone levels by 30 to 50 percent through regular cycles of Sumatra Pasak Bumis 1:200 tongkat ali extract, some can achieve an increase of more than 100 percent. Here we publish several lab reports from men who achieved such a result, among them a 72-year old whose levels were raised to 224 percent above baseline.

The first lab report below shows two results, the first from January 31, 2005, before tongkat ali therapy was initiated, and the second from April 28, 2005, after three months of tongkat ali therapy. The patient was 72 years old at the time of the tests.

Another trial participant more than tripled his levels of free testosterone.

The following lab tests are from an athlete who used tongkat ali to raise his testosterone levels to 150 percent of normal physiological range (a level that substantially enhances muscle anabolism).

The following test results are typical, and the effect the average user can expect. The trial participant was able to increase overall testosterone from 398 ng / dl to 477 ng / dl (a rise to 120 percent) and free testosterone from 52 pg / ml to 88 pg / ml (a rise to 169 percent), and to decrease relationships hormone binding globulin from 66 nmol / L to 43 nmol / L (a drop to 65 percent). The most dramatic change tends to be for free testosterone, which is the testosterone that really counts, because for both libido and muscle building, only free testosterone exerts an effect.
