Better than MDMA

115 mg oral MDA (powder / crystals)
To get straight to the point, I loved it.

Going into this experience, I researched the fuck outta MDA and was pretty obsessed about trying a new drug (this is the first new drug I've tried in a while). All of the experience reports seemed like the experience was a worthwhile one. And it was.

So for NYE, I went to this rave with a bunch of friends, 3 of which did molly and 3 of us which did sass. All tested. I decided to take ~115mg of the nice white crystals I obtained. So I drop the MDA at around 10:45pm and started feeling the after roughly 30-45 minutes later. First was a bit of nausea which then mixed with an electric-like tingling that shot up the back of my body and around the back of my head. It felt amazing. Instead of being floored and feeling the need to sit down like my comeups with MDMA, I felt stimulation which made me more dancier. I could feel my face just gurning away and my eyes rolling all over the place, and the eye wiggles were really prevalent. I could tell I just looked like I was on a drug. After a bit the nausea subsided, it proceeded to have almost the best night of my life.

I danced literally the entire night. I danced from when I came up at a little bit before 12 all the way to the last set ending at 5. Did not sit down once. This aspect of the experience is what makes me prefer it to MDMA. On MDMA I'm not too energetic and I just wanna chill in a cuddle puddle. With sass, I just wanted to DANCE. The body high and tactile sensations were amaziiiingggggg. Better than any body high I've gotten from MDMA. The visual aspect of the experience was great, and made lightshows just THAT much better.

Socially, I was a lot more social than I am on MDMA. I kept asking people if I could hug them, I engaged a lot more with people around me, and I was just more outgoing in general. I also hula hoop and I never ask anyone if I could play with their hoop simply because I usually don't feel like it (I never bring my hoop to shows simply because I don't wanna carry it around the entire time). However, last night was the first time I'd hooped at a rave and it was the tits. I just made so many connections last night as compared to previous shows and I was so proud of myself and this experience.

This shit lasts so long. I was still in my plateau about 3 hours after the peak and the comedown was fairly slow and smooth. All the sets in the main room were amazing (consisted of breaks, hard dance, DnB, and a tiny bit of trap and dubstep after midnight hit). When the event ended around 5, I was still feeling the roll. My arms still had a buzzing going on in them and I still just felt good. Tactile sensations are just great on MDA.

After getting back to the hotel, my fam and I stayed up talking and being stupid till around 9am. I was still pretty much going. I woke up around 1pm still feeling it a TINY bit. Now I'm home fixin' to eat an edible :)

All around, it was a great experience, and I don't know how I can go back to molly after last night. It was just such a perfect drug for a rave setting and makes me want to save MDMA for more intimate/personal settings. The euphoria was there but it was different than the forced euphoria that comes with MDMA. It felt more natural and genuine. I wish it wasn't more neurotoxic than MDMA though which makes me sad. The comedown is not bad as I type right now and I don't feel the whole 'sass gives you bad comedowns' thing. I feel pretty content right now. One thing I can say though is that I did feel a bit more scatterbrained during the comedown than MDMA, especially after smoking. But that's fine.

It's two days later and I still don't feel any sort of negative comedown. Just some soreness from dancing like a maniac.

Next time, I'm going to try mixing MDA and MDMA. I heard that's a pretty great combo.

But yeah, MDA. Great drug.
