Finding a positive balance between Mitragyna speciosa Kratom use and sex is somewhat delicate, and very much dose related. In its traditional context of use, Mitragyna speciosa Kratom does have the reputation of being a sexual enhancer, which seems logical, since Kratom is also a stimulant, used for physical labour.

Sexual drive and general tactile stimulation, nerve endings, are enhanced, especially during the stimulant phase or level. Kratom’s analgesic and sedative effects also reduce the sensitivity in the sexual organs, thus requiring more time and stimulation to reach an orgasm, which can be useful for males, in a hedonistic perspective or for the treatment of premature ejaculation. This is actually probably the reason behind some user’s claim that Mitragyna speciosa Kratom helps to perform sexually for a much longer period of time than usual.

Indeed, while Mitragyna speciosa Kratom also has a slight vasodilator and muscle relaxant action, which could potentially facilitate erections, this quality remains very much related to dose – and Kratom also seems to have negative effect on male sexual performance, especially in higher doses, causing temporary erectile problems.

Heavy regular Kratom use also lessens overall libido, sexual drive and desire, pretty much in the same way as opiates or opioids would. A heavily relaxing and sedating Mitragyna speciosa Kratom experience is already quite physically pleasant, and often leads the user’s mind in a drifting reverie quite distant from the physicality of sex.

Yet Kratom and sex can also be great, especially in lower, more stimulating doses. At such doses, one’s mood is lifted, one feels more social, outgoing, adventurous perhaps, and can go into a sexual or erotic headspace more easily.

Physical, nerve sensations are stimulated with Mitragyna speciosa Kratom, sense of touch heightened, which can lead one very close to orgasm, while making it rather difficult to achieve- which can be interesting for male users. If one can accept such a situation, that one probably or possibly won’t be reaching an orgasm, Mitragyna speciosa Kratom use can become a great opportunity to share intense and long physical stimulation such as deep caresses, especially with a partner who is not running after his own climax.

In such a sensual exploration, one rides the coming and going waves of pleasure and stimulation, in a way that could maybe be paralleled with Tantric practices, or M.D.M.A. and sex
