||Yes, some people describe MDE as more stony or more sleepy than MDMA. It is also somewhat shorter than the MDMA experience. While MDE is quite similar to MDMA, it is generally considered somewhat less intense, pleasurable, or empathic than MDMA. While the 'up' is less 'up', the 'down' that many people experience after MDMA is less present for most people with MDE.|
As far as what people want, there is certainly a much larger demand for MDMA than for MDE, based at least in part on people's greater familiarity with it. Some people do prefer MDE, and it is generally more difficult to find than MDMA...but MDE is also frequently sold as MDMA...so it seems unlikely that anyone would argue that more people want MDE.
Hope this helps.
