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 What you find, and what not, in Thailand

By Serge Kreutz

1. Young women (below 23) who have never been married and are still virgins (only available for takers who agree to a marriage).

2. Young women (and their parents), for whom the payment of an appropriate dowry (sin sort, literally: penetration price) is the single most important qualification of a bridegroom (more important than age, looks, intelligence, race, or fluency in the Thai language). Thai dowries typically are in the range of 5000 US dollars... a rather steep price for ordinary young Thai men (which means that there are many potential brides to be selected from).

3. Young women (and their parents) who agree to non-formal marriages (not registered with the authorities, and therefore, strictly speaking, not legal). Many Thai families consider traditional ceremonies (which are not legally binding), conducted on an auspicious date, as more important.

4. Women who have been married for a few months or years (with or without children), and then separated, and who subsequently are rather willing to enter a new relationships relationship (but have not become prostitutes). If you are obviously unattached, they are fairly easy to meet, and it isn't very difficult to make live-in arrangements with them (no dowry required).

5. Freelance prostitutes (who, nevertheless, are on the look-out for a steady partner; foreigners are usually welcome). Plenty of that kind in Pattaya, Phuket, Ko Samui (bar girls), and Hatyai.


1. Promiscuous young women (below 23) who have never been married (unless they were sold into prostitution by their parents, which nowadays is probably very rare, and rightly so).

2. Pre-marriage young women who occasionally would earn some money by being available for relationships rendezvous (virginity in Thailand is too valuable a commodity to loose it for a mere 50 or 100 or 200 dollars).

3. Pre-marriage girlfriends who agree to relationships intercourse with boyfriends (especially when these boyfriends are foreigners), even if there is a love relationship. It probably happens sometimes, but definitely not often among purely Thai boyfriends / girlfriends. Again, virginity is too valuable a commodity to play with; losers would be the parents who would not get the plus/minus 5000 dollars in "sin sort".

4. Young women in a steady love relationship (pre-marriage, during a marriage, or in a post-marriage steady love relationship who would consider switching to another man, even if that other man has better qualifications. Thai women in steady relationships are usually faithful, much more so than in the West.

Kaempferia parviflora (krachai dam) for relationships prowess and sports

By Serge Kreutz

Maybe it’s no coincidence that kaempferia parviflora is a plant with a very limited geographic reservoir. It is found only in Thailand, quite possibly the sexiest country in the world.

Thai cuisine uses rhizomes more than any other the cuisine of any other country. Rhizomes like ginger, tumeric, galangal give an authentic taste to most Thai dishes.

Kaempferia parviflora is a rhizome, and extremely rare in the wild. And we do mean “extremely”. Would this rhizome plant not have been cultivated in Thailand as a medicinal plant, it would probably long have been extinct.

The name of the plant, kaempferia, suggests some connection to martial arts, and a German-speaking botanist in naming it. Kaempfer is German for Fighter.

And indeed, one could not find a kickboxing camp in Thailand where krachai dam (kaempferia parviflora) wouldn’t be widely consumed.

Is there scientific evidence? Of course, there is.

Kaempferia parviflora is a phosphodiesterase inhibitor, not just of phosphodiesterase class 5 like sildenafil, tadalafil, and vardenafil, but also of class 6 phosphodiesterase.

Phosphodiesterase acts on blood vessels, inhibiting constriction. For the organ, this causes an erection. And for the kickboxer, it causes an increased blood supply to about every muscle of the body. Obviously, increased blood vessel diameter means increased blood supply, and increased blood supply means more oxygen for every muscle.

And this is exactly what trainers in Thai kickboxing camps promise. Every blood vessel fully saturated.

Not that kickboxers only appreciate this physiological effect of kaempferia parviflora.

The herbal is not yet on the list of the World Anti-Doping Agency, so, as word spreads, expect some professional cyclists participating at the Tour de France to develop a marked preference for Thai cuisine. Or how about a Thai cycler riding down the Champs Ellysee in a yellow jersey.

And then there are bodybuilders who, in cutting cycles, just struggle to achieve just this for esthetic endeavors: relaxed blood vessels that show on the surface of the skin.

Clearly, kaempferia parviflora (krachai dam) has enormous potential.

Tongkatali.org's Cosmetic surgery

By Serge Kreutz

I will not be able to avoid that I soon will be dead. I do not spend intellectual resources on ideas how I could avoid my death. But I am concerned about whether my process of dying will be comfortable or an agony.

One thing I really care about is that as long as I am alive, I want great relationships. Because it is the only thing that let’s me forget that in reality, it is stupid to be alive. Toil, suffer, die anyway. Why not be dead right now.

I have great relationships this time around. I want more of it, and I want even better relationships in the future.

That idea is what keeps me alive.

Yes, I know, each of us is just a stew of chemical elements, and our metaphysical thoughts, such as whether it is worthwhile to be alive, are just an expression of a certain neurochemical, hormonal constellation. I know it, and I try to manipulate it. I try it with tongkat ali which apparently raises testosterone. One may search scientific articles on tongkat ali at Medline.

When I have great relationships, I know that it is worthwhile to be alive because of great relationships now, and for even better relationships in the future. No doubts, and no depression. Just an intense sense that I want to manage my life.

An appropriate physical appearance is an important asset in any quest for the best relationships ever. That is why people undergo a good number of cosmetic surgery procedures.

The risks of invasive cosmetic surgery, such as facelifts, is widely underestimated.

Sooner or later, anybody who goes under the knife of a cosmetic surgeon will develop complications. That is why they let you sign a responsibly waver before you are allowed to enter the OP floor.

I do not think that rich Western societies are good for relationships for older men. They are way to ageist. Young women usually do not want to match with considerably older men, and considerably older women who cannot compete with their daughters.

If my age is a handicap in Western or Westernized societies, I obviously want to live somewhere where age does not hinder my prospects.

Such a society could be very poor, or adhere to an irrational religion. In a dangerous society, too, problems other than the age of a man determine female choice. A low level of female schooling, furthermore, makes females less independent of families, and then family choice is the guidance, with economic aspects considered more important than male physical attractiveness, or romantic feelings prior to a relationships relationship.

Tongkatali.org's - For me neurochemistry is superior philosophy, and drugs are the key to paradise

By Serge Kreutz

More specifically, all our mental facilities, of which some of our contemporaries are so proud, are just a stew of self-organizing molecules. There is no mind, no knowlege, no conciousness, and no thinking that wouldn't be just a function of biochemistry.

Nowadays, many people believe our brains are electrocircuitry. They think our identities are memories stored electrically like what happens in a computer. That's why these people believe that one day, we could download our brains onto a harddisk.

These people are fundamentally and ridiculously wrong.

To start with, neurons (nerve cells) are actually not connected to each other. They always end at synapses, and the synapses are chemistry, not electricity.

Why do neurons have axons, those long spins on which electricity travels? It has to be so because the mature human brain has about 100 billion cells, and the distances that signals have to travel are occasionally wide. Electricity has the great advantage that it tavels fast. On the contrary, chemical signalling has to be by diffusion, and compared to electric signal transmission, this is slow.

The human brain is NOT an electrical system. It's a biochemical stew. And only a tiny portion of signal transmission is actually electrical. The brain is NOT a computer. Such an idea is brainless.

People with no idea how the brain works tend to believe that it's all a big circuitry accumulation, like a computer chips, just a bit wetter. That's wrong.

Brain cells don't connect to each others like electrical transmission cables. Brain cells connect to other brain cells at synapses. Nerve cell ends in a biochemical puddles. The puddles (synapses) are what connects them.

Whether we are happy or sad, motivated or depressed, full of love or full of anger isn't primarily a matter of electrical wiring and electric currents, it's primarily a matter of the chemical composition of those synaptic puddles.

And that is why I refer to neuropharmacology as chemical engineering. That's were science becomes technology.

In a probably rather distant future, life for most people will be a matter of swallowing a certain pill every day, and then there is never-ending indescribable bliss.

But now? Here we are in the paleolithics of brain engineering. Our tools are crude, and our knowledge is as fussy as mysticism.

The street drugs, most of them, can only give us temporary glimpses of paradise, and their effects on brain and body physiology are mostly desasterous.

But we all have some other knowledge of paradise that is not normally drug-mediated. We know relationships desire and orgasm. These two aspects of life, of course, are also biochemistry. But they are biochemistry in harmony with physiology and health.

So, in my opinion, at our current rudimentary understanding of the brain, this must be our starting point.

If we want to engineer happiness and bliss, we must improve our relationships desire and our orgasms.

Not many options here. Opiates feel good but are antisexual, cocaine and amphetamines can put desire into overdrive but preempt orgasmic satisfaction and relaxation. But still, cocaine and amphetamine are nearer to the most promising path we can take, which is the enhancement of dopamine.

There are dopaminergic drugs that take a cooler approach than cocaine and amphetamines: medications that are used in Parkinson’s disease, for example, or to lower the hormone prolactin in prolactin-releasing cancers. But many of these medicines cause miserable side effects. In the short term, the most common side effect is nausea. And the most fearful longterm side effect is pleural thickening, gradually destroying the capability to breath and making the connection to an artificial lung a necessity.

In my opinion, the best option we have now is testosterone and dopamine enhancing herbals, of which there are two, butea superba and tongkat ali.

Both are known as testosterone boosters rather than dopamine boosters. But actually, testosterone and dopamine go hand in hand, with anything that elevates testosterone also elevating dopamine.

But the connection isn't linear. My own observation is that for a comparable dosage, tongkat ali is more physical, and butea superba more mental.

This means that anybody who desires elevated testosterone for bodybuilding should go for tongkat ali. But those who want elevated testosterone for improved libido and orgasm will be better off with butea superba.
