Marijuana users have more sex

Marijuana users have more sex”

Barry Schultz/ZUMAPRESS/NewscomFor the Friday afternoon files: new research has discovered that regular marijuana users have sex more regularly than their non-toking counterparts.

"What we found was compared to never-users, those who reported daily use had about 20 percent more sex".

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.

The study does not, however, necessarily indicate a causal relationship between marijuana use and sex. 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.

They looked at surveys of more than 50,000 men and women who were asked a range of questions about health and behavior, including whether they had ever used marijuana and how often they had sex. It found that women who smoked marijuana daily had sex with a male partner an average of 7.1 times per month, compared with 6 times per month for nonsmoking women. Women who didn't use marijuana at all had sex 6 times a month, on average, while men who didn't use marijuana had sex an average of 5.6 times a month. This is the first study to look at the relationship between marijuana and sex frequency in the United States, but it's about time, considering an estimated almost 25 million American adults use it, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

"It was pretty much every group we studied, this pattern persisted", Eisenberg told NPR.

That said, research shows that the average couple has sex roughly once a week.

Researchers found the frequency of sex rose steadily with the frequency of marijuana use.

The responses showed that 24.5 per cent of men and 14.5 per cent of women reported having used marijuana, and that there was a positive association between the frequency of marijuana use and the frequency of sexual intercourse.

The perhaps surprising results go against some previous studies, which have found reduced sperm counts in men who smoke marijuana and reports of erectile dysfunction in heavy users.

New studies are constantly done on the effects that weed has on your body, but for now, a low sex drive isn't one you need to get paranoid about. This trend held even when researchers accounted for other drug use by participants. "It's possible it makes men or women more interested in sex", Eisenberg says.

Stanford's Eisenberg says his study doesn't prove the idea that marijuana is getting people into the sack, though he says that is a possibility.

Palamar authored a small study comparing the sexual experience of people who are under the influence of alcohol versus marijuana.
