Marijuana Leads To Better And More Frequent Sex, According To Science

weed and sex




If you’ve ever smoked weed before, you don’t need a team of researchers to tell you that everything is better when you’re high. Food tastes better, music sounds better, and, of course, sex definitely feels better.

But even though we know this as an undeniable fact, scientists at Stanford University went ahead and conducted a study to confirm what we already know: Weed takes sex to a whole ‘nother level.

For the study, which was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, researchers analyzed data from a massive group of 28,176 women and 22,943 men “to elucidate whether a relation between marijuana use and sexual frequency exists using a nationally representative sample of reproductive-age men and women.”

The study found that “marijuana use is independently associated with increased sexual frequency and does not appear to impair sexual function,” and moreover, it was revealed that people who toke up daily reported having 20 percent more sex than those who don’t smoke weed.

  1. Weed helps you achieve orgasms easier.

A lot of women have trouble achieving orgasms. In fact, about 1 in 3 women find it very difficult to orgasm during sex. Luckily, your old pal pot is here to save the day.

The CB1 is the brain’s receptor that’s affected when we smoke marijuana. When this receptor is activated, we get randy, baby.

As Dr. Mitch Earleywine, professor of psychology at the State University of New York at Albany told NY Mag: “That CB1 receptor seems to be involved in improved tactile sensations and general euphoria.”

This means weed has the power to enhance your physical stimulation and give you a serious body high. If you’re having trouble getting off, try taking a couple hard tokes of a joint and see if you’re not hitting octaves you didn’t even know you could.

  1. Weed increases sexual stamina.

Who doesn’t want to last longer in bed? You become the superman of sexual partners when you introduce weed into the picture.

According to a study cited on About, 75 percent of participants reported an increase in the duration of their sexual encounters when they smoked weed beforehand. So, if you get with the reefer, your partner will thank you for the multiple orgasms.

  1. Weed makes orgasms more intense.

You know what’s more clutch than an orgasm? A really, really intense, earth shattering, life-altering orgasm. Marijuana has the power to make your orgasmic experience unbelievably mind-blowing.

As a marijuana-loving man noted to NY Mag’s Maureen O’Connor, “Pot tends to make time move slowly for me. Orgasms seem to last for 30 seconds and are incredibly intense. The best orgasms I’ve ever had have been while stoned, whether with another person or solo.”

Unlike with alcohol, which can take the wind out of your sexy sails, weed actually does the opposite — it strengthens it.

  1. Weed is good for relationships.

Couples who smoke together are couples who fight the least. It would appear that marijuana might be the key ingredient to having a happy, healthy relationship with your partner.

According to The Daily Mail, the use of weed in relationships is actually linked to lower rates of domestic violence: “Findings suggest that marijuana use is predictive of lower levels of aggression towards one’s partner.”

And according to The Washington Post, the University of Buffalo studied over 600 couples ranging as far back as 1996 and found that couples who smoke weed really do fight less.

Marijuana brings couples closers because it chills people the f*ck out. No one wants to have an argument when they’re feeling mad mellow and relaxed. Maybe we should all listen to Snoop and “smoke weed everyday.” We’d all find our soul mates if we did.

  1. Weed is an aphrodisiac.

Weed has long been known as an aphrodisiac. It has the power to enhance sexual desire, hence why all those horny teenagers are constantly pinned for their delinquent, pot-induced marijuana sex.

Psychiatrist, Dr. Lester Grinspoon, told High Times that weed “greatly enhances the sexual experience for many people. There’s no doubt that when people are high, they’re more sensitive to their sexual feelings and urges.”

So, next time instead of eating oysters with bae to get in the mood, smoke a doobie instead. But maybe still have the oysters because we all know the munchies are a real struggle.

  1. Weed relieves tension before you get down and dirty.

Everyone knows that smoking the good old reefer has the ability to relieve your aching anxieties. This can be especially useful when you’re about to get naked and do the no-no cha-cha.

It can relax you and put you in the right mindset to get nasty. All the horrible sexual tension that plagued you suddenly washes away, leaving you relaxed and ready to do the deed. According to Medical Daily, marijuana “has a calming and relaxing effect that must be associated with decreased anxiety.”

The effect marijuana has on the brain can be used to treat chronic anxiety problems, too. It can “exert an effect on stress levels through the endocannabinoid system, which regulates pain and appetite. THC interacts with anandamide, which is a neurotransmitter, creating a happy, relaxed feeling, as well as sleepiness.”

After you decide to indulge in that fat joint, you’re going to be ready to indulge in a little more fun once that old Mary Jane kicks in. When you’re high, you’re relaxed and relaxed sex is good sex.
