Marijuana users have more sex

Marijuana users have more sex

Calling into question stereotypes about cannabis use and sexual desire and performance, a new study finds that frequent marijuana users have more sex than nonusers - about 20 percent more sex, in fact.

The data Eisenberg and his team used comes from a large Centers for Disease Control and Prevention survey of Americans age 15-49.

People who took cannabis daily had sex 7.1 times monthly, on average for women, and 6.9 times for men.

There's some good news for pot users out there, as a new study is claiming that people who smoke marijuana have sex more often than those who do not, although scientists are unsure of why. The researchers examined a four-week period in respondents' sex lives, asking them how often they had heterosexual sex and how many times they had smoked weed over the course of a year.

He also said that the data compared was nearly the same in any case compared.

In other words, pot users are having about 20 percent more sex than pot abstainers, Eisenberg noted.

Yet another research from 13 years ago found beneficial properties of CBD for reducing neurotoxicity in the brain which makes cells die significantly faster. We all know the risks associated with marijuana use - dependency, impaired driving, decreased academic performance, etc.

The researchers reached the conclusion after a retrospective analysis of data on 50,000 Americans ages 25 to 45, compiled from 2002 to 2015 by the National Survey of Family Growth.

"There are arousal pathways that are stimulated by marijuana that could explain the results", he said, "but for this study, it's important to know that correlation does not mean causation".

"Really, across the board in every group we evaluated, we saw the same association", Eisenberg said, although the study did not prove that pot use caused increased sexual activity. What's more, the link was found across all kinds of demographic groups. The researchers also added that they believed there would be different results based on marital status, education, race/ethnicity, and age. The trend remained true even for weed smokers who also consumed other substances like alcohol and cocaine. He said this independence suggests the positive correlation can not be attributed to a general tendency of people with fewer inhibitions to indulge in both drugs and more sex than their peers. 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 does, however, warn that the study shouldn't be misinterpreted as having a causal link.
