DOSE:
1350 mg oral Yohimbe (extract)

BODY WEIGHT: 155 lb


Iíve experimented with yohimbe on a few occasions, but always in combination with other substances. The last time I did it, I bought some standardized extract herbal tablets of yohimbe from a health food store. It was $15.00 on sale for $11.99. I bought it and took three tablets that were extracted to 450 MG of Yohimbine.

Although I didn't really feel especially horny and aroused, I felt an increase in energy and many hours after consumption I was trying to see if yohimbe lives up to its reputation by attempting masturbation. I usually finish within a couple minutes, but this time I simply couldn't reach orgasm. I tried for about I'd guess an hour before my brother came home than I had to stop. I waited until he fell asleep then continued again. I tried again for about another hour, but even though I had amazingly vivid fantasies that would usually finish me in a second, I simply couldnít reach climax. even when I moved into hyperspeed, it just didnít do its job.

So after all my effort, I gave up and I tried to go to sleep. But even that was impossible to do. I actually enjoyed being awake. I was slightly meditating and halfway dreaming and thinking of very pleasant thoughts. when I looked at the time I realized it was like 4:30 in the morning and I decided it was probably time to check in for the night. I took four Benadryls and after about another half hour I fell asleep.

So all and all it was actually not an unpleasant experience;. I hated all the effort with no pay off, but it was still a fun experience. I guess yohimbe would be a great herb for sex, seeing that I never reached orgasm.
