Pandora and her Box

One of the wonderful things about the internet is that you are always learning. I followed a tweet this morning and a whole new world that had hitherto remained hidden was opened to me.

Talk about Pandora’s Box…

Here’s the tweet: If your erection lasts longer than four hours, you’ll have to keep waiting for your doctor because he’s still watchi…

Now what healthy red blooded male isn’t intrigued by such a dilemma? I followed the link and ended up here, a place called

The tweet was brief, but the comments began to make me giggle, at one stage I LOL literally.

It was not the comment that did that: Hypothetical situation. Furries exist in real life. You are a male canid, fossa or other species that “ties” it’s sexual partner. You have done just that, then experience priapism. What do you do? Go to the emergency room like that?

But the reply: Socialised Medicine tickled my fancy.

Now all the above is an aside.

Yohimbe Tree

What I really learned from the comments was about Yohimbe.

Never heard of it before, so what does one do? Consult the Great God Google, which is exactly what I did.

Primarily Yohimbe is a tree (Pausinystalia yohimbe). The Yohimbe evergreen tree that is found in Zaire, Cameroon, and Gabon.

The bark of yohimbe contains a chemical called yohimbine, which is used to make medicine.

But what a medicine. It is a sort on natural Viagra™, in fact with this stuff occurring naturally it makes one wonder why the hell Viagra™ was invented in the first place.

Yes, it is used to treat erectile dysfunction, among other unimportant stuff.

Yohimbe bark

It also comes as…

For pumping up your performance

Simply as a fuel

Control your fat & stuff with the hydrochloride

As drop for under the tongue “Read Instructions Carefully”


And, yes… you can’t do without:

The Abominable Energy Drink

The wonderful thing is that this stuff is bloody dangerous, so much so that some people commenting thought it was illegal.

Hints of four-hour erections… that need medical treatment, discomfort, pain, intense pain.

I am sorry, but I have greater respect for my gonads and reproductive organ than to try this stuff. I cannot see why ‘men’ would inflict such an abomination on themselves. I use the term ‘men’ loosely.

So I advise that this post is an ‘information-only’ post; not an invitation to go hunting for the stuff.
