Using Marijuana Regularly Could Mean More Frequent Sex, Study Suggests
29 October, 2017, 02:39
But scientists now say that people who regularly smoke it have nearly 20 per cent more sex on average.
A record percentage of Americans - 64 percent - now believe adult use of the drug should be legal, according to a Gallup pollpublished this week.
This is the part of the brain which turns motivation into action, and has been linked with having sex more often.
Data on more than 50,000 Americans ages 25 to 45 were examined. More than 28,000 women and almost 23,000 men were asked how often they had sex in the four weeks before the survey and how often they used marijuana in the past year, CNN reported. Women who consumed marijuana on a daily basis had sex about 7.1 times per month, and men did it 6.9 times per month, but those who did not smoke had sex 6 and 5.6 times per month, women and men respectively. "If anything, it's associated with increased coital frequency", said the study's senior author Michael Eisenberg, Assistant Professor of Urology at Stanford University School of Medicine in the US.
"While the results are very interesting, it's premature to suggest that marijuana may have a medicinal use in the treatment of sexual disorders such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation or orgasmic disorder", Vira said. "I just think it's reassuring that more marijuana use doesn't necessarily inhibit sexual function".
Eisenberg told CNN that if a patient asks whether frequent marijuana use is getting in the way of his or her sex life, he will tell them that "it may not be the culprit".

Rock told them no, but encouraged them to "roll with it for awhile". "Are you fucking shitting me?" Ritchie added, "Everybody. Rock also addressed the misconception that there's nothing better than having really great sex with a really hot woman.
That seems to indicate that the association can't be explained away by saying that people with fewer inhibitions are likely to both smoke pot and frequently engage in sex, Eisenberg said.
To further explore the topic, Eisenberg and his colleagues analyzed data from the National Survey of Family Growth, conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which included questions on marijuana use and frequency of sex.
As such, a fair amount of other research has found a link between the frequency of sex and overall physical and mental health.
About 24.5 percent of the men and 14.5 percent of the women reported using marijuana. It explicitly queries respondents on how many times they've had intercourse with a member of the opposite sex in the past four weeks, and how frequently they've smoked marijuana over the past 12 months. "However, the fact that the association persists for all the subgroups - age, marital status, education, religion, etc. - suggests that there may be some biological explanation".
This trend was not seen in respondents who use other drugs. In addition, coital frequency rose steadily with increasing marijuana use, a dose-dependent relationship supporting a possible active role for marijuana in fostering sexual activity.
But at the end of it, Eisenberg still cautioned that the study was not proof of their being a causal link, strong as the hints maybe.
