    OK I'm just going to put this out there and see what you guys think. It may be that my physiology is somehow unique and that this is why my body responds this way, so I can't gurantee repeatability in all cases.

    Anyway, I've always puzzled on how or where to broach this topic, but I admit that since being a young man I have occasionally (although quite frequently) used aspirin as an aphrodisiac. (And no I don't mean by giving it to my wife!) Through a chance discovery I found that taking a 75 milligram dose of aspirin several hours before sex massively increased the intensity of one's orgasm. To be clear it has a slightly differer impact on me than what traditional aphrodisiacs are envisioned to do, in that it does little or nothing to increase the pleasure or sensual nature of the overall experience. Rather it is just the 'end point' itself that is significantly enhanced.

    I have never really mentioned this to anyone before, as I rather feared that it might be dismissed as being ridiculous (and no doubt some people will say this here), but since there is little harm in doing so, I suggest you try it before dismissing it out of hand. Due to not wishing to discuss the matter in the past, I can't say if a similar effect might be observed in female orgasm, but I would be very interested in the results if anyone tried.

    Also there is a small proviso that the effect tends to wear off after a few days use, so that you might only be able to use it for two or 3 days, then take maybe a week off and then use it for 2 or 3 days again.

    Moreover larger doses of aspirin appear to have no effect, so increasing the dose does not improve the experience.

    I am genuinely interested if anyone tries this what their experiences and impressions are. Maybe I'm just a freak, but the difference for me is simply too profound to be dismissed as something imagined, or just some kind of placebo effect.

    And so the control group also becomes more aroused for eating the sugar pills. Thats why we take a control group. It's purely psychological. Aspirin does not connect to any neurotransmitters.


    The past teaches, the present watches and the future learns.

    Though religion is a concept that simply can not be ignored. The fact that a deity could stand idly by when one part of his creation slaughters another part, simply for his namesake, is a mystery i doubt theologist would dare touch.

    Yeah. That's the expected response. Now why not shut up and try it? This isn't a scientific experiment. Not yet anyway. When I can guage a little more opinion it might be in the future though.

    The world is full of naysayers. I find it constantly incredible how people without ever testing a hypothesis or trying something themselves, feel able and confident to dismiss things out of hand. Like I said, pop a 75mg dispersible aspirin between 4 to 7 hours prior to the event, then go and get your rocks off and report back here. Try it a few times if you want to see if the effect is too subjective to call or not. (That is of course if you can get your rocks off, as not everyone can.)

    I've tried some limited blind testing on myself so that I didn't know (without analysis) what I was taking myself in any given week, whether it was a small amount of aspirin, or a placebo. The results, although by definition still subjective, still point to a positive result.

    I'm not gathering data at the moment. I just want to see if maybe my physiology is somehow different and the effect I've encountered is limited to me or not. If anyone jumps in with a valid view after trying it, I might be more inclined to take that view on board.

    Your proposed experiment lacks rigor. All you will get would be anacdotal data. Set up a double blind study. Ideally your test group should not know what they are testing or at least should not know what the expected results are. At the very least the test subjects should think that the expected result is the opposit of what you are testing for. ie tell them that aspirin will decrease their sexual enjoyment. Also the sex itself should be standardized in some way. ie masturbation under some set of standard conditions. This is a science forum, at least try to do science.

    This IS NOT an experiment. I am gathering people's views to see whether it is worthwhile considering doing an experiment at a later date. I am simply looking for anacdotal data from people who can actually be assed to try it, before mouthing off and pontificating as to whether the effect is real or not.

    Also please don't preach to me about how to do experiments. I'm a mature Biology masters student. I think I would be very worried at this juncture if I didn't know how to do a decent experimental design.

    You sound like just another naysayer, who is ready to discount almost anything without having even bothered to try it yourself first. This to me, doesn't make you seem clever at all.

    However at this point I think I'm going to pass on setting up a lab experiment where I ask everyone to 'jack off for science', lol. I think because of the nature of the experiment, it is always going to depend to some degree on the subjective experience of the person in question. However qualitative data could still be gathered at some point using volunteers and log books/score cards etc with double blind tests to see if the effect was noted in a significant population size. But in any case, that's still some time off, if I ever get around to it at all. I have many much more pressing things I need to do for my degree first - and also bare in mind that there is little personal profit and little useful in terms of reputation to be gained from conducting such an experiment anyway. Sexual reproduction is not my specialist area, nor is it ever likely to be.

    I simply put it out there, as it's an effect I've noticed for over 20 years. I have always found it curious and interesting and have wondered if it was just something to do with my own physiology, or if others might notice a similar effect too. If anything it's a harmless little piece of fun. 75mg of aspirin is unlikely to harm almost anyone - and if in the end you do get 'more bang for your buck' out of it, then good for you! Like I said I just wanted to put the information out there, let people try it for themselves and if it worked for them then great! I hope they pass the message along. If not then what the hey, at least you probably had a little bit of fun trying.

    Aspirin does widen the capillaries. Could blood flow have something to do with it, even if it's nothing neurological.
    It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.

    Yep, it should have the opposed effect, more blood flow, less blood pressure, a decreased body temperature, and less blood for the brain. I would say it has the adversed affect of an aphrodesiac.

    Though several toxins in small concentrations have been used in this manner and they work. Toad venom poisoning: resemblance to digoxin toxicity and therapeutic implications

    Though sometimes people get sick of them (how curious).

    I'm anti aspirin, as it doesn't work on me, it'll only make me pass out. Then my own question, why does it make me pass out? (yes 2 aspirin will make me pass out, 1 will make me feel very weird.)

    The 4 to 7 hours prior, could be a clue as to why people do not notice anything.
