||(powder / crystals)
I had heard of the yohimbe bark powder being a powerful aphrodisiac causing spontaneous and long lasting erections. I decided to 'surprise' my girlfriend by secretly ingesting 2 heaping spoonfuls of the bark powder at about 2100 hours. I got really bad hiccups that would not go away. Very unusual for me.
About an hour later we went to bed. I did not feel any aphrodisiac effects but we had our normal sex when the hiccups stopped. Nothing unusual and eventually I drifted off to sleep. At about midnight I got up to pee and began hiccupping some more. It was a very spasmic hiccupping and it was painful. I began to feel very hot and began sweating profusely. The sweat literally soaked the bed. My heart began to race over 200 beats per minute and I was beginning to wonder if I was going to die.
After about 2 hours the hiccups and the sweating and dying feeling left but I had to get up to pee again. When I got up I felt faint and could barely make it to the bathroom. I felt like I was going to throw up. My eyes were red and very dilated. I had to sit up on the couch afraid I was going to puke. I did eventually return to bed but did not sleep. It is now 10:00 the next day and still haven't slept. My head and stomach feel terrible. I find it difficult to concentrate (like a very bad hangover) and I can't eat. I never felt the aphrodisiac effects. Just misery. Maybe I ingested too much. I'll never find out because I'm going to throw the rest away. The experience felt a lot like eating 10 grams of morning glory seeds but with none of the positive effects.
