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 Why making poverty history is not in the interest of humanity


By Serge Kreutz


It is hard to predict whether ever, and if yes, when, we will live in societies, in which poverty is history; in which the basic material needs of every person, such as food, shelter, and basic medical care, are met.

Theoretically, such societies are possible. They are, because quite probably, the sources of energy, which mankind can tap, are non-depletable: while we will run out of fossil fuels, there are many other forms which are currently considered “alternative” but have the potential to become mainstream; and quite likely, many new forms of usable energy will be found.

Energy sources

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Energy_development

Thus, because it is unlikely that we will ever run out of energy, there exists the theoretical possibility that in the future, not only will poverty be history, but beyond that, we all live in affluent societies.

The question is whether, or to what degree, we would experience such societies as positive. And if we do not experience them as positive, the question is whether or not there will be people who will destroy affluence, out of boredom, or because they expect to benefit from a situation in which hardship is widespread. Or whether we will be ruled by governments who can tune societies so that problems associated with too much affluence will not occur.

To evaluate the options, it helps to be aware that human character expressions, and even human emotions, are, not exclusively but to a certain extent, offshoots of economic conditions. More specifically, certain character traits and emotions that we rightfully cherish are related to economies of need, rather than economies of affluence.

Among these character traits and emotions are: solidarity, friendship, and even love.

When people are poor, they believe that everything will be better when they are richer. But once they are richer, they realize that they are not happier. How can that be? To most people it doesn’t make sense, so once they are richer they try to convince themselves that things are better, even they don’t feel better.

However, that affluence doesn’t make people happier (just as overeating doesn’t make them healthier), is well established in scientific research.

Desire to Be Rich and Famous Called a Sure Path to Discontent

https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2011/04/secret-fears-of-the-super-rich/308419/

Even in China, people actually became not happier by becoming richer:

Money does not buy happiness: poll

http://english.people.com.cn/ 200501/13/eng20050113_170468.html

In pre-unification East Germany, many people experienced a high degree of solidarity. No, it was not a feeling of solidarity with the government, which the Communist government would so much have appreciated. It was the solidarity of those who were poorer than the other Germans, those in West Germany. They could not afford BMWs, only Trabis, and the East German jeans just didn’t fit. But they had a higher affinity for solidarity, and solidarity felt good.

This is from a CNN article about nostalgic feelings among former East Germany citizens:

Quote

“Under the former regime, people looked out for each other, explains the owner. Living under a dictatorship and standing in long food lines created a feeling of solidarity. “You could depend on each other,” he says, “now it is money, money, money.”

Unquote

Ex-East Germans nostalgic for communism’s simpler life

http://edition.cnn.com/WORLD/ europe/9911/09/wall.nostalgia/

After reunification, the basis for the specifically East German solidarity was gone, and with it the feel-good effect. Of course, everybody who wants to can now go to the former West Germany, and buy brand-name jeans. Or rather, the brand name jeans that previously were available only in the former West Germany have now made it to East Germany. But are the people happier?

As indicated above, many positive human emotions do relate to negative social conditions: solidarity among the disadvantaged, sharing among the poor, friendship among those in need, and love among those who face an adverse world.

On the other hand, when negative social conditions are removed, we often see a rise of unpleasant human emotions which typically are absent among those who live in negative social conditions: cynicism, nihilism, destructivism (random expression of destructive behavior). Depending on certain other factors, there also is the likelihood for “golden cage” symptoms, such as depression and neurosis.

I would like to strongly differentiate between two kinds of negative social conditions: the lack of affluence (poverty), and the absence of safety (danger). Some of the effects of economic misery and of danger are equal, but others are contrary to each other. And I will argue that a reduction of affluence may be a valuable tool to engineer desired emotions, while a reduction of safety result in entirely negative patterns of emotions.

In situations of both misery and danger, people are, because they will benefit of it, more likely to develop solidarity and friendship.

However, in situations of danger (because there will be a higher level of general distrust), people will form smaller units. In situations of poverty, on the other hand, emotions of solidarity and friendship will likely have a much broader base.

Even love relationships reflect social conditions. In general, negative social conditions, misery and danger, are more conducive to love relationships than are affluence and the absence of danger and violence.

However, danger and violence (or the danger of violence) will result in a love relationship attitude that is grossly different from that caused by a certain level of economic misery. Danger and the threat of violence makes people emphasize monogamy, while misery can result in promiscuity.

See the following link for psychological research on the different effects that poverty and danger have on children:

Economic Status, Community Danger and Psychological Problems Among South African Children

http://chd.sagepub.com/cgi/ content/abstract/8/1/115

But not only are social and economic, conditions responsible for the character traits and emotions we develop; social conditions also are responsible for the arena in which humans compete with each other.

There is a biological basis for competition among humans, and it comes down to competing for relationships partners.

Darwin sensed “male competition and female choice”, but even that view was an offshoot of the social conditions he, Darwin, lived in. More neutrally, I would talk of male competition and female competition.

19th century socialists believed that by abolishing private property and emphasizing the creed “from each in accordance to his abilities, to each in accordance to his needs”, they would abolish competition among people. But rather, moving competition out of the material realm leaves people disoriented.

To compete by trying to provide better material conditions is a psychologically easy setting. Even people of limited intellectual capacities can understand that those who provide better material conditions will be more successful in finding relationships partners. Thus, a certain level of economic need makes people industrious, and brings out character traits that are supportive of improving material conditions: not just industry but also reliability, interest in furthering one’s education (because it will result in better economic opportunities), friendliness (because it entices people to become a buyer of goods and services).

When humans compete with each other by trying to be economically more successful than others, the world is simple. However, the positive effects on attitudes will only be present up to a certain level: a level well below affluence. Furthermore, the positive effects will also only remain present for as long as the competition is restricted by definite rules. Most importantly, violence and the threat of violence must not be allowed to provide a competitive edge.

Kreutz Ideology has a more differentiated approach to the reverse application of materialism (change social conditions to effect certain character traits and emotions) than Marxists who believe, naively, that simply abolishing private property will solve all contradictions.

It’s anyway not a question of who owns property but who controls it.

Fine-tuning social conditions in order to effect certain valuable character traits and emotions is a highly sophisticated endeavor, and it cannot be handled well by governments who result from Western-style democratic elections.

If the intention to create societies that are optimally suited to enjoy optimal relationships experience, and to end their lives in a comfortable death, we want to foster certain human character traits and emotions.

To maintain or enhance character traits and emotions such as solidarity, friendship, and love, we have the option to either allow a certain level of inherent poverty, or of inherent violence.

But violence, even low-level violence, is detrimental to both, the likelihood of optimal relationships experience and the likelihood of a comfortable death.

On the other hand, to maintain a certain level of poverty favors human interaction on a broad basis, for the purpose (and the pretext) of solving economic problems.

Furthermore, maintaining a certain level of poverty within societies firmly directs competitive behavior towards economic goals: the desire to purchase certain products, even luxuries. If a certain level of poverty were not maintained, the competitive impulse would likely show in a rather irrational fashion, such as conspicuous consumption.

How people compete through wasteful consumption has been analyzed already by the US economist Thorstein Veblen in his book, published in 1899, The Theory of the Leisure Class.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Theory_of_the_Leisure_Class

If people cannot profile themselves well through their pursuit of material successes, they move into unpredictable arenas that are harder to control: drug abuse, adherence to destructive ideologies such as punk, or football hooliganism.

Furthermore, maintaining a certain level of poverty can have a decisive effect of counteracting age discrimination. It can be a desirable eigendynamic in societies that younger people enter relationships relationships with older people because older people could provide economic assistance.

Like much else which is said in this article, this idea is not new. You can find parallels in John Kenneth Galbraith’s “The Affluent Society”, published in 1958.

Tumeric, tongkat ali and butea superba


By Serge Kreutz


Phytochemicals and relationships health, 2019


A full relationships enhancement stack should include tongkat ali, butea superba, mucuna pruriens (velvet beans), krachai dam (black ginger), fingerroot, and fenugreek.



If you are in a stable relationship, you should also add tumeric, the world's most underestimated aphrodisiac.

Tumeric is underestimated as aphrodisiac because with no other sexuality enhancing herbal, it is equally important to know what to expect.



Does tumeric elevate testosterone? No, you use tongkat ali and butea superba for that.

Does tumeric heighten libido. I wouldn't say so. Not directly anyway. For libido you use mucuna pruriens, together with the tongkat ali and butea superba.

Does tumeric improve erections. Nope. That is the domain of krachai dam and fingerroot.

So, why you need tumeric, and why is it so suited for stable relationships relationships?

You have to know what to expect from tumeric.

On the face of it, tumeric is an orgasm delayer. That sounds like the opposite of an aphrodisiac, except for premature ejaculators.

But don't be so quick (with your judgment). Because it isn't that tumeric takes the excitement out of relationships, to a point where a man can't climax.

Much rather, tumeric extends the preorgasmic plateau phase. This plateau phase is pure pleasure.

Under normal conditions, the preorgasmic plateau just takes a few seconds. It's when you pass the point of no return.

But in a tumeric-modulated mind (about 3 grams or more of tumeric powder per day) the plateau phase can be several minutes, and you have amazing control over this plateau phase. So much control that after having spend a few minutes on the plateau phase, you may just decide to go without ejeculation.



When you are at this point, I would say you have had a dry orgasm: satisfaction without ejaculation.

If that doesn't sound like pure pleasure, just wait a moment.

And let me ask you whether you are in a stable (monogamous) relationship?

Because then, tumeric is ideal for you.

Why?

Because normal monogamous relationships, at least after a few years, are characterized by relationships-once-a-week, or even less frequently.

But if you consume rather generous amounts of tumeric, and decide not to ejaculate (dry orgasm), you do not need much of a refractory period.

You can have relationships the next day, and the next. Relationships every day, in a marriage of years.

This will have an enormous impact on the happiness of a marriage, especially if you also work on other parameters (testosterone - tongkat ali, butea superba, fenugreek; libido - mucuna pruriens; erection quality - krachai dam, ton krachai).

I would not say that tumeric is only for married couples, not even only for those in stable relationships, even though in a stable relationship, there will be enough intimacy to communicate why the male partner does not want to ejeculate (because:tomorrow again).

But there is another aspect to it. If a man uses tumeric in generous quantities, and has relationships with dry orgasms on many days in sequence, the production of seminal fluid is immensely potentiated.

When a tumeric user indeed has a wet, normal orgasm after many dry ones, be prepared that the bedroom will be flooded.

Take note, porn clip studs. This technic can make you produce cum quantities that will excite your director, and amaze your audience.


Cycling tongkat ali in a monotherapy

It is well established that tongkat ali has to be cycled. This is the case because of the negative feedback loops of the human body's hormonal system: increased levels of any hormone reliably trigger the hormone's down-regulation. This is why exogenous testosterone causes testicular shrinkage, for example. When more than enough testosterone comes from the syringe, the Leydig cells don't produce any at all, and the testicles get atrophied.

Thus, using tongkat ali, one can trick the body into elevated testosterone levels only for a limited period of time. This means that in order to be effectively used, tongkat ali has to be cycled on off on off.

Bodybuilders and men with a busy relationships schedule don't like off-cycles. They would prefer consistently elevated testosterone levels, bodybuilders for an optimal physique, and those pursuing optimal relationships for orgasmic gratification.

The best solution we can come up with for this dilemma is to alternate tongkat ali with butea superba.

Both butea superba and tongkat ali work on the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis which regulates testosterone levels, but the pythochemicals of the two plants are structurally so different that familiarization to the one doesn't carry over to the second.

For supranatural levels of testosterone, it is essential that the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis is off-balance as this is what exerts the desired increased testosterone synthesis.

Alternating butea superba and tongkat ali is a convincing strategy. A standard regimen would be to use tongkat ali for 8 to 12 days, and then switch to butea superba for an approximately equal time span. After the butea superba comes again the tongkat ali, and then again the butea superba, and so on, without ever letting testosterone go down to base level.

Alternatively, both herbals could be consumed as part of a wider stacking regimen, which eliminates the need for cycling.


Tongkatali.org's Instrumental jealousy


By Serge Kreutz


We tend to think of jealousy in entirely negative terms. We usually see it as an expression of a lack of self-confidence, of character weakness, or as something that causes considerable emotional pain. Jealousy breeds suspicion, ruins personal lives in Shakespearean tragedy. Jealousy is poison.

All of this is true. All of this is false. Jealousy is more than this. It’s not entirely negative. The snake is the medical profession’s animal goddess of choice. Most poisons have substantial healing potential. Medical properties are dosage-dependent.

Jealousy can be a great relationships energizer. It can be better than Pfizer’s Blue. It’s a doorway for true love, for desire that is entirely focused on a single person.

Sigmund Freud once mentioned that for a woman to be truly loved there has to be at least some doubt as to her chastity. To not feel entirely sure of possessing a woman is what keeps desire alive. Young men typically don’t appreciate jealousy. Young men also often are a bore. They don’t know themselves, and most of them are lousy lovers. They seldom are emotionally balanced and seldom can walk the tightrope of jealousy.

I have myself, in younger years, often wondered why married couples would join swinger clubs, and especially why husbands should agree to a threesome in which they would have another, younger man, work their wives.

As a matter of fact, these are practical, wise men. They keep their marriages fresh, and their relationships lives active. And they are in full control.

While usually, changing partners is the best recipe to keep one’s relationships appetite up, the option of a new girl every week is not available to most men. It is therefore a wise approach to try to get the most out of a partner that is available. If you can’t go wide, go deep.

I know the difference between love and relationships. But I am not a romantic. Love is but to be psychologically very much focused on a particular person. There are certain exterior factors that determine the degree of love.

The fewer other options we have, the more we will likely be focused on a person with whom we have a love relationship. The less we possess her, the more likely we are to want her. Love can be engineered, as can jealousy.

While I personally may have a preference for going wide, I have, in some instances, gone deep. I can do so, and have great relationships over months on end, if I can cook up the right mix of jealousy.

I am not advocating swinger club memberships for every couple. That’s something for hardened connoisseurs. But I do propagate the positive aspects of jealousy, strange as this may sound.

How to engineer jealousy? If you are in a love relationship, talk, talk, talk. Both of you. Talk about past relationships, and talk about hidden desires. It’s a great therapy to make your relationship deeper. It’s also a sure route to jealousy.

For unless both partners are incorrigible liars, details will emerge which will, silently, hurt.



Tongkatali.org's What is aging?


By Serge Kreutz


Aging, from a certain age onwards, is a decline of physical and mental functions.

It partially depends on outside impact (accidents and illnesses caused by external pathogens), and partially is self-regulated (the human body withdraws itself from life).

This article deals only with aging as a result of negative self-regulation.

Negative self-regulation is heavily mediated by the immune system of the human body.

The immune system takes its clues for negative self-regulation from the neurological system which signals to the immune system, on multiple pathways, that time is approaching (for the benefit of the species) to let the next generation take over.

The genetic make-up of human nature may determine that it is in the interest of the species that I, as a human male, vacate my social positions, and the surface of this planet rather sooner than later.

But this is not my individual interest. As long as I can have fun, I want to be around.

Any serious life extension has to take this into consideration: if you want to live longer, you have to intercept the negative self-regulation of the immune system.

And the healthiest way (free of side effects), is by interfering with the negative signaling of the neurological system.

And how do you control the neurological system?

One powerful way to do this is via the psychological system.

This is why a positive attitude towards life has such a great positive impact on a persons immune system, and his or her health.

Go further!

It is the psychological-relationships system of human physiology that has the greatest power over how we feel.

Our greatest capacity to feel well, and positive, is when our minds are engulfed in relationships desire, and after that, during the waves of orgasms.

Because these positive situations recharge our immune system like nothing else, our health is great as long as we have great relationships. No rheumatism, no back aches, no high blood pressure, no cancer (and an endless list of other “no’s”).

So, what practical conclusions we can draw from this if our aim is to slow down aging?

We have to ensure that our relationships lives are as optimal as they can be.

For this reason, I am against all social orders that have a negative impact on my personal relationships life. Such social orders deprive me of better health and bring me closer to death.

On the other hand, I do recognize that the quality of my relationships desires and orgasms considerably depend on my hormonal balances, especially the levels of testosterone.

This is why the only drug in my personal life extension regimen is a substance that up-regulates my testosterone levels.

Actually, it’s not even a drug but a herbal supplement, the testosterone-enhancing effect of which has been well documented in scientific research: tongkat ali

Please be aware that while I am all in favor of elevated testosterone levels, I am totally opposed to exogenous testosterone (testosterone patches, testosterone injections, anabolic steroids).

Why?

Because my health, and any life extension I can achieve, depend on whether I have a healthy hormonal system. And supplying exogenous testosterone is the worst interruption that can happen to my endocrine functions. Exogenous testosterone just throws everything out of balance. This is the opposite of what I can achieve with tongkat ali.
