What are Poppers?

Poppers is a unique term that is used to describe alkyl nitrite liquids that are commonly used for intensifying sexual pleasure.

At first, Poppers used to come in small capsules that were in glass form. One had to crush these capsules to release out the aroma. This glass would produce a unique sound that was popping when crushed and this came up with the term “Poppers.”

Using Poppers

Poppers are always taken by inhaling the liquid from a little bottle that is around 10ml to 30 ml. This liquid has a yellowish color and a smell that is unique, sweetish and fruity. However, this smell changes according to the type of nitrite used.

When alkyl nitrites are taken they act like vasodilator, this enables them to dilates blood vessels making more blood to enter into the brain which allows the user to experience headrush.

Poppers also make every muscle in the body to relax. This makes it easier and simple to have penetrative sex. This will be possible as Poppers intensifies positive emotions, reduces any inhibitions, develops a sense of euphoria and well being and also improves your sex drive.

Other Uses for Poppers

What are poppers? Apart from poppers being for recreational purposes, they are also used as room odorizer, liquid incense, leather cleaner and also for removing nail polish. Poppers can be bought at sex shops, joke shops and at some time in pubs tobacconists, clothes shops, and music stores.

Poppers Formulas

Early in the seventies and eighties, Dr. Lowry said in his study that there were only two substances in the widespread use of poppers. These were isobutyl nitrite and amyl nitrite.

However, many other formulas have developed with regards to poppers. That is currently it can also be acquired as cyclohexyl nitrite, isoamyl nitrite or isopentyl nitrite. However, these last three formulas; cycloxehyl, isoamyl and isopentyl nitrite are just being developed.

These new formulas are not better or purer than the original formulas. But they are just the result of cat and mouse game that is played by the poppers manufactures and the regulators who do not want to see anything mind-altering at the market.

This is as regulators ban one substance, another one is developed with similar functions, and the business continues and thus resulting to new formulas. This means the new formulas will also be banned and other formulas will be introduced.

Out of these three new formulas, Isoamyl nitrite is highly recommended by many as it is a good chemical that does not have any side effect after sniffing.
