    How many people on here are familiar with Poppers?

    If you don't know what it is, it is a liquid that you sniff to get a quick buzz while having sex. I know it is used a lot in the gay community, but, don't know if it is used among straights. I just know that I can't stand the smell of it.

    I know that it has different effects on different people, just like Pot does. I have never smoked pot myself, but, have been around people who do smoke it, and I can't stand the smell of that either. Both make me sick to my stomach.

    I'm curious, because I don't see what all the fuss is about. I met a very handsome man, who I have hooked up with off and on, but, he won't get intimate without using poppers. I have also met others who can't get sexually aroused without it.

    I know this probably isn't the best place to ask. Just wondering if anyone else shares my issue. I have never done any other drugs, I don't smoke, and only drink socially. I just don't see getting addicted to something like that as having any value. I get along fine sexually without all that stuff.

    I like jalapeno poppers.  They are yummy fried jalapenos with cheese in them.

            I eat because I work out, I work out because I eat, it's a viscous cycle.

      That's even worse than the Poppers I'm asking about! The effects of poppers goes away pretty quick, but those jalapeno poppers make you need to drink lots of water! NO Thanks!

      Have you tried the ones stuffed with crabmeat??

      The only other poppers I know about are the ones used with fishing.

        No, but those sound really good as well.  I didn't even realize stuffed crab meat jalapeno poppers was an option.  This is almost better than when I learned about bacon wrapped jalapeno and cheddar shrimp.

    DownUnder - I mean country-wise....
    We use Poppers to catch KingFish..
    and it is a term of endearment from kids to their dads.
    Maybe something has been lost in language etc.
    We call the one's that do what you're talking about as Floppers hmm
    I think in the UK they are called Plonkers! hmm

      Yes poppers for fishing and as a juice drink in a cardboard box with a straw. When you are finished with the drink you can inflate the cardboard box and then jump on it. It goes pop, i guess that's where the term popper comes from.

    If by poppers you mean amyl nitrate, it's used as an inhalant to treat certain specific heart conditions, regardless of the sexual orientation of the person with heart disease.

      brimancandyposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      That sounds familiar. But, I think they no longer use amly nitrate in the new forms of poppers used recreationally. But, that heart condition thing certainly is something I didn't know. Glad that it has some worthy cause for it's existance.

      From my few experiences with it, I would assume that it lowers pressure on the heart by relaxing the muscles? It seems to have that effect on all other muscles. But, I wouldn't recommend using it to anyone.

      The only thing it ever did to me, was make me feel like I wanted to throw up. It certainly smelled bad.

        It's always Amyl something.

        Yes I have used them before, not for any sort of homoerotic purpose though. As a kid, on the club scene. They are pointless, bad for your brain cells, and really not that good.

        You do contradict yourself however, as in your first post you suggest that you have never done them. In your latest post, you suggest that you have.

        If you have, then what is it precisely that you want others to tell you? It sounds like you know enough about them.

          Ryan, did you skip reading the title of the thread or did all the irrelevant posts make you forget it?

          I never said I didn't do poppers. I said I have never smoked pot or done any other drugs. And, my own experience with using poppers is very minimal. I have not used it myself since the 1990's.

          However, I am constantly in places where poppers is used by other people. In bars, clubs, and other events. So my recent experience with it has been from being around other people who are doing it. Which is why I asked the question. And, why I don't get what's so great about it.

          My main question was wether or not this is just a gay thing, or a habit that gay and straight people have. Like I said, it's probably not something a lot of people are familiar with.

          I have heard that lots of people in clubs do ecstacy. But, I have never done it. and never would. It's just a curiousity, and nothing more than that.

            Ok fair enough.

            I believe that many users of ecstacy use Poppers to 'bring them back up', or as just another way to frazzle their brains... you know, why not, they are fucking them up anyway...

            I know straight people that have used poppers. The only reason that they are particularly popular with homosexual men is because they loosen up the muscles around your anus for around 15-30 seconds after being inhaled, making it easier for another homosexual man to penetrate that aforementioned anus. Although I suspect that many homosexual men do not need the muscles around their anus to be any more loose.

            I have used poppers, in the past, and it was not for this purpose. So in answer to your question, no poppers are not just for homosexuals.

              I would comment on the penetration thing, but, being a top, I can assure you that I do not have a loose anus. But, that sure made me giggle.

              I would lead on to other stereotypes, but I might just offend someone, so I'll just say that your point was well made.

    I use party poppers....but the streamers get everywhere and my dog doesn't like them!!

      Hawkers Bazaarposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      I like party poppers too, the ones with streamers. The party poppers that brimancandy are describing leads to shooting streamers of other kinds.

    I have actually inhaled poppers.  My fashion sense was greatly improved, and I switched from Wild Turkey shots to Appletinis.

      Ahh Wild Turkey, no popper would make me change from that sweet nectar of the gods!

    Rae, did you skip all the  'irrelevant' posts by the OP or notice that the title question is barely referenced


    The spirit of the post was "Just wondering if anyone else shares my issue."
