Smoking Weed Leads To More Sex, Study Claims

Regular marijuana use linked to more sex

Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine found that marijuana users have approximately 20 percent more sex than their counterparts. 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".

The results don't prove that pot actually causes higher sex drives, but they do hint at it, according to Eisenberg.

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.

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 US who took the National Survey of Family Growth, a federal survey that collects information on family relationships, reproductive health and drug use.

Women who consumed marijuana daily had sex 7.1 times a month, on average; for men, it was 6.9 times. Men who said they'd used marijuana in the past year reported having sex an average of seven times in the previous month, compared with an average of six times for men who said they hadn't used marijuana in the past year.

The findings applied to people of all races, ages, education and income levels, religions, every health status, marital status and whether they had children. This bias is baked into the very names of the institutions that fund much of this research - it's why we have a National Institute on Drug Abuse, rather than a National Institute on Drug Use.

The researchers compiled the answers to those questions for every year since 2002 to examine for the first time the relationship between marijuana use and frequency of sexual intercourse.

Kamal Haasan has mounted a sharper attack on the attackers than Rajnikanth: " Mersal was certified". In his Tweet, he said, " BJP demands deletion of dialogues in " Mersal ".

"We were surprised to see the positive association between users", Eisenberg said.

That said, research shows that the average couple has sex roughly once a week. Overall, pot smokers had 20 percent more sex than non-smokers.

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.

However, others have also found in both animals and humans that the drug can stimulate activity in brain regions involved in sexual arousal and activity. The survey asked if respondents had "sexual intercourse" in the previous four weeks, and clarified that "sometimes, this is called making love, having sex or going all the way".

"The personality type issue is certainly possible", Eisenberg said.

But research on how marijuana relates to sexual health remains slim, and correlation is not causation.

The study appears Friday in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
