Our goal is to empower our customers, providing the information needed to make informed decisions as to whether to use Poppers vs CBD Suppositories for anal sex and play. 


What are Poppers?

Poppers, often containing alkyl nitrites, are well-known for their vasodilatory effects. This chemical compound leads to increased blood flow, muscle relaxation, and a momentary head rush. Widely used to enhance sexual experiences, poppers have been favored for their ability to intensify sensations and create a heightened state of arousal. 

Widely used within the party circuit they can be a fun enhancement to pleasure. The issue is that concerns about their safety have prompted users to explore alternative options.

How do Poppers work?

Alkyl nitrites in poppers cause blood vessels to dilate. This results in a massive rush of blood throughout the body, especially to the brain —thus creating a brief but intense head rush and tingling sensation throughout the body. The blood rush also increases muscle relaxation which helps the sphincter muscle of the anus relax and prep for deeper penetration. Despite their popularity, questions about the safety of long-term use and potential side effects have led some individuals to seek alternatives.

What Are The Potential Side Effects of Taking Poppers?

  1. Primary Reason for Erection Loss: The initial erection enhancement is due to the temporary and brief increased blood flow to the penis, from the inhalation of alkyl nitrate. The issue is this metabolizes very quickly, about 3-5mins, and so erections are often short-lived and can drop very quickly after the inhalation.
  2. Secondary Reason for Erection Loss: The vasodilatory effects of poppers can lead to a drop in blood pressure, we know erections are due to blood flow to the penis. So this fast drop in blood pressure can cause loss of erection. It can also cause lightheadedness and dizziness
  3. Long-Term Erectile Dysfunction: Regular or excessive use of poppers can lead to tolerance, where the body becomes less responsive to the vasodilatory effects. This can diminish erectile function over time.
  4. Risk of Chemical Burns and Skin Irritation: Spills or direct contact with poppers on the skin or mucous membranes can cause chemical burns, irritation, redness, or a rash.
  5. Combining Poppers and Viagra is Toxic: Poppers can interact with medications, especially those for erectile dysfunction. The combination can result in fainting, stroke, heart attack, and/or death

Are Poppers Safe?

In moderation, perhaps. However, the safety of poppers has been a subject of debate. While they are generally considered safe for occasional use, prolonged or excessive use may result in adverse sexual health effects, including the loss of erection and feelings of dizziness and lightheadedness. 

We encourage you to consider seeking an alternative such as Mello Bottoms CBD suppositories as a safer option.
