Pot users have more sex

Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine found that marijuana users have approximately 20 percent more sex than their counterparts. But whether it's cause or effect isn't clear.

To examine the relationship between marijuana use and frequency of sexual activity, the researchers looked at survey results from about 50,000 people in the USA who took the National Survey of Family Growth, a federal survey that collects information on family relationships, reproductive health and drug use.

In fact, people who said they used cannabis also claimed to have sex a little more often than people who never used it, a team at Stanford University reported.

That amounts to roughly 20 percent higher frequency of sexual intercourse for people who consume marijuana.

Women who smoke weed had sex 7.1 times a month, compared to women who didn't - they had sex about six times a month. Among men, those who didn't smoke pot had sex 5.6 times in four weeks, while those who smoked daily had sex 6.9 times.

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.




"Marijuana use is very common, but its large-scale use and association with sexual frequency hasn't been studied much in a scientific way", Eisenberg said. The more marijuana people smoked, the more they seemed to be having sex.

After excluding respondents who didn't answer one or more of the relevant questions, the researcher was left with data for 28,176 women, averaging 29.9 years of age, and 22,943 men, averaging 29.5 years of age.

So it's not a lot more, and the researchers note that this is what people say they remember having done. Someone could smoke in the morning but not have sex until the evening, when it wouldn't be in their system any more, for example.

Or maybe it really is the weed. In the meantime, Eisenberg said that if a patient asks whether his frequent marijuana use is getting in the way of his sex life, he will tell them that "it may not be the culprit". But people aren't rats, of course. What's more, the link was found across all kinds of demographic groups. But that might just be because weed seems to heighten sensory experiences overall.

One of the most important issues cannabis may help us solve is Alzheimer's - cannabis has shown to be extremely effective in battling this degenerative illness. "Eisenberg takes pains to point this out, saying in his statement that the results "(don't) say if you smoke more marijuana, you'll have more sex". 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. He assumed that smoking pot would interfere with sexual performance.
