A new scientific study has revealed that stoners have more sex. That’s right, smoking the magical plant makes you horny, baby.
The research was conducted by urologists at the Stanford University School of Medicine and spanned nine years. The study, one of the few of its kind, was called “Association Between Marijuana Use And Sexual Frequency in the United States: A Population-Based Study.” The study of 28,176 people aged 25-45 was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, a scientific journal that publishes awesome sexy time sex studies.
The aim of the study was to “elucidate whether a relation between marijuana use and sexual frequency exists using a nationally representative sample of reproductive-age men and women,” the average age being 29.
Researchers analyzed data from 2002, 2006-2010, and another study in 2011-1015. The study evaluated “whether a relationship between marijuana use and sexual frequency exists.
Dr. Michael Eisenerg, a Urologist and Stanford Professor who authored the study, said: “The more people used marijuana, the more sex they had.” Who knew?
The study also revealed that cannabis has a generally unknown bonus. “These findings also alleviate some of the anxiety surrounding performance inhibition, noted Eisenberg. “Frequent marijuana use doesn’t seem to impair sexual motivation or performance.” If anything, it’s associated with increased coital frequency.” Performance anxiety? According to the study, light up a doobie and you’ll feel so good, you’ll forget you ever had anxiety.
The “clinical implications” for the study was that “marijuana users had significantly higher sexual frequency compared with never users. Marijuana use is independently associated with increased sexual frequency and does not appear to impair sexual function.” (Sex therapists are already recommending marijuana use for couples as a more sensual, bonding alternative to the numbing, bumbling effects of alcohol, without the hangover.)
“A positive association between marijuana use and sexual frequency is seen in men and women across all demographic groups,” concluded the study. “Although reassuring, the effects of marijuana use on sexual function warrant further study.”
“Usually people assume the more frequently you smoke, the worse it could be when it comes to sex, but in fact, we learned that the opposite was true,” says Dr. Eisenberg.
Couples who smoke pot generally report less inhibitions, more interest in sex, more tactile sensations, and more intense “highgasms.” Some dispensaries even carry specific strains that are tried & true as great for sex, with names like “Dirty Girl” and “Sexxxpot.” No wonder there is a growing pot shortage.
