Marijuana use linked to better sexual performance, says study

Marijuana Mask

Medical researchers in the U.S. have found frequent marijuana users have about 20 percent more sex than those who abstain.

Researchers analyzed data on study participants' frequency of marijuana use and the number of times they had sex per month, discovering that those who never use the drug also have about 20% less sex. When the majority of Americans have said they've smoked marijuana at least once, the more they can know about all aspects of how the drug affects their bodies, the better.

This is the part of the brain which turns motivation into action, and has been linked with having sex more often. The researchers examined a four-week period in respondents' sex lives, asking them how often they had heterosexual sex and how many times they had smoked weed over the course of a year. For men, the corresponding numbers were 5.6 times for nonusers and 6.9 for daily users.

The findings applied to people of all races, ages, education and income levels, religions, every health status, marital status and whether they had children.

"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.




The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sponsors the survey. "If anything, it's associated with increased coital frequency", he said. What's more, the link was found across all kinds of demographic groups. Also, the higher the use of marijuana, the more the increase in sexual activity, suggesting a possible active role that pot may play in enhancing sexual desire. But that rose to 7.1 times for those who smoked it daily.

"One question my patients always have is about whether smoking marijuana frequently would negatively impact their sexual function".

Around 25.5% of men and 14.5% of women in the analysis reported having used marijuana, and in addition, the researchers found a positive association between frequency of marijuana use and frequency of sexual intercourse.

The study is the first to evaluate the relationship between cannabis use and frequency of sex at the national level in the United States. He said this independence suggests the positive correlation can not be attributed to a general tendency of people with fewer inhibitions to indulge in both drugs and more sex than their peers.

However, Eisenberg stressed that the study does not prove a causal link.
