A stimulant widely used from the days of Hunter Thompson (1970's) and still widely used today. Accompanied by a short cocaine rush and scull squeezing. Mentioned in Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas.
We had a quart of tequila,
a quart of rum, a case of beer...
- a pint of raw ether...
two dozen amyls.
A substance that resembles a hard 3 inch shoe lace that is broken in half and sniffed for heart patients, effects bring joy and excitement.
I opened the box and cracked open an amyl right under my nose
Short for amyl nitrates, a type of alkyl nitrate.
These are commonly known as poppers
, ram, thrust, rock hard, kix and TNT.
When sniffed they provide a short-lasting head rush, similar to that of cocaine
, but which is often accompanied by the feeling that your head is being compressed from all directions.
It has also been said that they make orgasms feel like they last longer and also that they may help to relax anal muscles for use in homosexual male sex, although the latter of these is usually rejected as myth.
Poppers are not addictive, and can be bought legally as room aromas in many different brands in clubs, sex shops and smoking shops from the age of 18. They range in price from £2 - £5 per bottle.
