Jamaican Stone – Is The Strength Worth The Danger?

jamaican stoneJamaican Stone is one of the more unusual ways to boost your sexual stamina that I’ve tried. And not only is it supposed to help guys last longer, but it’s often advertised as giving stronger erections too.

As with so many things in life though, the phrase ‘too good to be true’ may unfortunately apply in this case.

It’s banned by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), partly because someone died from it, and also because the ingredients are now known to be potentially dangerous.

Having said that, it’s still a popular product in some communities, with many guys saying it works very well – as long as you use it carefully.

So in this Jamaican Stone review, you’ll find all the important information you need to know if you’re thinking about trying it.

What is it?

Jamaican Stone is sold as a natural sexual performance enhancer. It’s said to be harvested from the tree sap of a tree native to Jamaica and some other Caribbean Islands.

It’s then molded into the stone form which you can see in the image above. The standard size is between 0.5 and 1 inches. It’s also known as Jamaican Black Stone due to the color of the finished product, although it’s possible to find it in other forms, such as drops or gels.

Strangely, nobody seems to know the name of the tree it comes from. It doesn’t say on the packet, and no supplier website mentions the name. And here’s the scary part – after it caused a death, it was reported that some versions contain toad venom from the Bufo genus.

Apparently, both the toad venom and the tree sap contain chemicals known as bufadienolides, which can disrupt the normal rhythm of the heart. So no matter where it comes from, it doesn’t exactly seem the safest option.

How to use Jamaican stone

image showing someone using black stone1. First apply a couple of drops of water onto one surface of the stone.

2. Rub the water on the stone in a circular motion until it turns into a milky colored liquid. This should take no more than a minute.

3. Gently rub that liquid onto the sensitive parts of your penis. Concentrate on the head as this has the most sensitive nerve endings.

4. You’ll need to test exactly how long you need to wait before having sex. It could be anything from 10 to 30 minutes, so some experimenting is needed.

5. Before you have sex wash off any excess liquid with some mild soap.

6. Dry the stone and store it. It can last for several months if you care for it properly.

My experience

There have been no official studies or scientific research done on the effectiveness of Jamaica stone for premature ejaculation, so I was a little in the dark when testing it. But in the name of experimentation, that didn’t put me off.

I ordered it online and it arrived a week later in an unmarked packet. I followed the instructions above, though didn’t get it quite right the first time.

The main problem with desensitizing products in general is working out how much you need. Apply more than you need to, and you risk numbing yourself too much; too little and it won’t work.

I had an unpleasantly hot sensation which took around 15 minutes to subside after washing it off thoroughly. And it probably took another 30 minutes for the tingling sensation to go away completely.

The second time, I was more careful and just rubbed a couple of small drops on. This time there was still a hot tingling sensation, which again took a while to subside, but it was more tolerable.

It seems to take about 10 minutes to have a noticeable effect, but 20 to be at the maximum desensitizing potential.

The numbing effect was definitely effective, and there’s no doubt that using Jamaican Stone allowed me to have sex for longer. However, it wasn’t as long as the 4 hours some sellers claim.

Did it have the other effect of giving me a stronger, harder erection? Well, no not really – at least not as far as I could tell. Maybe that part is a marketing gimmick, or maybe it just didn’t work on this occasion.

The numbing did last for several hours, which was a record in comparison to all other delay products I’ve tried, which wear off in around an hour on average.

Possible issues and side effects

  • The main side effect is the burning sensation if you put too much on.
  • Even when you get the amount right, you still have to put up with a hot tingling sensation.
  • It’s not a good idea to use Jamaican Stone during oral sex because the taste is strong and unpleasant.
  • The numbing sensation is strong, so could reduce the pleasure of sex.
  • The risk of serious harm – see the following section.

Death reported in the news

jamaican black stoneIn 2008, many US news outlets, such as time.com, reported that the New York health department was warning people not to use Jamaican Stone. This was apparently because a man died after eating it.

The warning also reported that similar versions were behind poisonings and deaths in the 1990s. Obviously it’s not meant to be eaten, but they do further warn that even applying it to the skin can be harmful.

Maybe that explains the burning sensation I experienced.

Update – some clarity regarding the ingredients

In 2017, Spanish researchers undertook a rigorous scientific analysis of Jamaican Stone to identify the exact ingredients. They concluded that it has toxic ingredients and described it as a ‘dangerous aphrodisiac’. You can read their full research article here.

Problems buying online

Following all the comments from readers asking where they can get it, in June 2017 I decided to do some research into the online sellers.

And sadly I could find nothing but problems with the main websites that claim to sell it.

For example:

jamaicanstone.com – the site redirects to malexhance.com where I couldn’t complete an order.

buyjamaicanstone.com – their order page doesn’t have a security certificate.

jamaicanblackstone.com – no security certificate on the billing details page.

jamaicanstone.org – accepts payment through Hipay, which has a terrible review score.

The moral of the story? Order this product online at your own risk!


There are alternatives which don’t present the same problems as Jamaican Stone. So if you’re interested in trying a desensitizing product, I highly recommend taking a look at my overview of different desentizing sprays.


  • Gents,
    I have purchased this on E Bay and it took a while to reach me but, I did get it. And I also purchased some a few weeks ago while in Jamaica. This stuff is great !! I have been using the stone for a few years now.

  • Hi
    I would like to try the black stone. I saw a few for sale on eBay, most of them based overseas but I am not sure if I can trust them . I am based in the us. Any supplier website you would recommend ?

    • Hi Ric
      I understand your concern. To be honest though, considering my for mistrust of the product generally, I avoid affiliating myself with any particular seller. Sorry!

    • Hi Steven
      I’m not sure to be honest. I don’t think it’s sold in any physical shops (correct me if I’m wrong!) so you’ll probably have to order it online and have it shipped from abroad.

  • Hey I am from Jamaica and I came across this blog because I wanted to know if what was doing was ok well I think am a bit more clearer on the matter. Used stone a couple times, #BestSex lol. Dusk till dawn

  • Used this while in the usa years back, it actually trained me to the extent that when I don’t use it I still last for ever, but not all women can take it, I am saying you will go on for hours. perfect product.

    • Hi Kay
      I guess maybe it gave you some confidence when using it which might have helped get over a psychological issue that was causing the PE, because there’s no evidence at all that any desensitizing product can have a permanent physical effect on lasting time!

  • Yah it works well! I just want to ask is black stone is a drug? Im going home this coming 20 and my flight is in us counrty

    • Hi Kro
      I don’t think it’s considered a drug. However, it is banned by the FDA in the US. I’m not totally sure if you’re allowed to bring it into the country. I just had a look online and couldn’t find a definitive answer. I’d do some research if I were you before thinking of taking it with you.

  • I work in a cruise ship, i bought it in carribean seas at st maarten. Most of the crew member use it especially when going to carolina!

    • Hi Johanl
      Unfortunately I don’t recommend any one place to get it from. The best thing to do is search online for sellers in your country.

    • Hi Godwin
      I’m not sure where you can get it in Ghana. Have you looked online at the websites that sell it to see if they ship there?

  • Hey,
    Good article, I have been using stone back home in the Caribbean for over 30 yrs.
    Lots of men back there use it.

    By the way do you mind sharing the link with me, for where you bought yours.
