Anyone else find MDMA to be more calming, rather than stimulating?

    SWIM has only tried E a handful of times, 5 to be exact, over the past 9 mouths, and only actually rolled 3 of those times. The first time SWIM tired it he was exteremly disappointed as he received a dud pill (own fault for not testing). The next time he took it, the experience was everything he expected it to be, he also remembers the pill to be pretty speedy as he had lots of energy, he was up until about 4 and the next day he felt drained and slept most of the day. Then a few mouths later he got a green incredible, as seen above as swims avatar. This pill was tested and shown to have just MDMA in it. Swim would call this the best roll he has ever had, it was like the last experience but felt much less speedy, it was actually calming/relaxing, and there were more intense visual effects, ie lights and my monitor looking much brighter and more vibrant. After it was over SWIM has able to sleep with no issues and had no negative side effects the following days. Then recently swim got some new pills that have similar effects, just not as intense (probably lower amount of overall MDMA). It is hard to describe but you feel stimulated, yet in a calming, natural way, nothing like the artificial stimulation swim gets from coke or adderall, the best way to describe it would be stimulation without the anxiety and other negative effects that typically go along with it. Swim still find himself wanting to move around, but can also just be at ease sitting down if he wants too. Swim was just wondering is this typical of good MDMA? It seems that a lot of people think that if e does not make them feel all sped up than it’s not good, but in swims opinion that is just because there are so many crappy pills going around these days that are cut with stims, and a lot have not experienced just MDMA’s effect alone.

    In SWIMs experience, a calming roll versus a stimulating roll is all based on the environment and setting. If SWIM is around friends, being driven around, at a party, etc, the drug can be very stimulating. If SWIM is alone, or perhaps with a few buddies at his house, the setting lets SWIM relax, focus more on himself than his surroundings, and doesn't feel the need to "get up and move" or chat, etc. Of course, these effects can vary wildly based on whats in those pills. Both types of rolls are incredibly fun, and SWIM likes to switch em around every other roll to keep things changing.

    PS smithdogg1, SWIM had a friend who claims his best Ecstasy experience was off a pill that looked exactly like SWIYs, however it was pink. We called them "Pink Exclamations"

    Good point, the first time swim rolled good, he went to a huge party, when he took the green exclamation he was just at home and rolled with a good friend. He has also found that the environment, music, ect can help change how you are feeling and bring you up on a more stimulated feeling. Swim is planning his next time to be at the beach, when the sun is going down and before the summer gets here and it gets too hot, should be a good time.

    My lab monkey also reports a similar diversity of affect from mdma, ranging from not being able to stop moving, grinding teeth, and feeling high enough to pop right out of his skin, to feeling "total zen" calm, with pronounced relaxation, clarity, and uber-all-embracing love. The difference may be attributed to set and setting partially; the most characteristic roll of the first type involved driving around with friends and what not, while the quintesential second type occurred while sitting alone on a beautiful summer day perched on a swimming pool diving board contemplating the value of love and its importance in psychological/sociological/spiritual well-being while watching the rippling water scattering the sunlight. Also, of course, there is often a lot of other shit in e tabs, like speed, that may have a profound influence on the experience.
