It’s ‘High’ Time You Know That Marijuana Consumption Leads To A Lot More Sex

There is some excellent news for all you pot smokers, who’re probably aware of the fact that wherever there is smoke there is fire! Recently, we found ourselves delving into marijuana smoking trends in the country and across the world, (you know for research purposes!) and found something very interesting.

A study was published recently in the Journal of Sexual Medicine and conducted by the National Survey of Family Growth, through an analyzed data collection process which indicates that people who smoke or consume marijuana, have sex more often than people who don’t.

Now, this study can be easily misinterpreted into believing that if you consume marijuana you attract sexual endeavours or sex happens magically. The study indicates that having more marijuana, heightens your sex drive (there are still speculations around this though). It also clearly states that people, who smoke pot, just indulge in a lot more sex! So don’t go consuming cannabis like mad in a hope to get laid is all we’re saying!

Now let’s get a bit more into the study that was conducted. According to data collected from National Survey of Family Growth, in the years 2002, 2006, 2010 and, 2011 to 2015, 28,000 women and nearly 24,000 men were asked how frequently they had sexual intercourse in the past four weeks and how frequently they smoked marijuana in the past 12 months. This is where numbers and gender came into play!

Women who consumed pot daily had sex or indulged in sexual activities on an average of 7.1 times during the previous four weeks compared to the other 6.0, who were non marijuana consumers and had not used marijuana in the past year. For men, the average was 6.9 users and 5.6 non users.

“In other words, pot users are having about 20 percent more sex than pot abstainers” said the study’s senior author Dr. Micheal Eisenberg at Stamford University.

Since marijuana is banned in India, the study can’t work well here. Pot smoking isn’t a secret anymore and a lot of people smoke pot privately since publicly smoking it can get you into trouble. Unlike alcohol, it isn’t easily available and is definitely less social in decree. Since it’s a private indulgence, the opportunity to initiate an intimate act is higher, unlike drinking alcohol in public places. It’s also a given fact that while under the consumption of pot, some senses are a lot more sensitive than the rest and this can heighten sexual pleasure, making one more hornier than usual.

Again, we cannot emphasise enough on how marijuana will not necessarily bring sex to you. That’s completely your doing. But if you do find yourself high on pot, you’re definitely going to increase your sexual libido and have sex a lot more frequently than you usually do. Of course the scientific evidence behind this study is still a bit bleak since there is general dearth of scientific studies conducted on marijuana in general, we strongly believe more studies between sex and marijuana need to be done in order to reach a final conclusion for the same.

For now, there is more emphasis on legalising marijuana across the world and increased libido is an off shoot of general marijuana consumption activities.
