File this under the category of "Tell us something we didn't already know." But researchers have now proven that cannabis use leads to better and more frequent sex.
If you’ve ever smoked cannabis, you don’t need a team of researchers to tell you that everything is better when you’re high. Food tastes better, music sounds better, and, of course, sex definitely feels better.
But even though we know this as an undeniable fact, scientists at Stanford University went ahead and conducted a study to confirm what we already know: Marijuana takes sex to a whole 'nother level.
For the study, which was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, researchers analyzed data from a massive group of 28,176 women and 22,943 men “to elucidate whether a relation between marijuana use and sexual frequency exists using a nationally representative sample of reproductive-age men and women.”
The study found that “marijuana use is independently associated with increased sexual frequency and does not appear to impair sexual function,” and moreover, it was revealed that people who toke up daily reported having 20 percent more sex than those who don’t smoke cannabis.
An additional JSM-published study entitled, The Relationship Between Marijuana Use Prior to Sex and Sexual Function in Women, conducted at Saint Louis University in Missouri also found that weed can significantly improve things in the bedroom.
The survey was from by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) via a questionnaire. The CDC's broad, all-encompassing survey is often utilized by researchers as a basis for further, more specific analysis.
Researchers Dr. Andrew J. Sun and Dr. Michael L. Eisenberg, are both affiliated with the Department of Urology, at Stanford University, in California. The duo accessed the CDC's study to research marijuana's effects on male sexual and reproductive function, which is Dr. Eisenberg's area of expertise.
As such, he sees men with various forms of sexual dysfunction. As for medical or lifestyle factors that may influence function, he is often asked about what role, if any that marijuana may play.
The results of their study revealed that cannabis does indeed make sex better and more often.
