Two out of three Canadians, who had sex while high on cannabis, said they would do it again, a new survey shows.
Interestingly, 78 per cent of women reported having used marijuana while having sex versus only 62 per cent of men.
About 82 per cent of those surveyed said they would date someone who smokes marijuana regularly. Also, about 52 per cent said they’d even get high on a first date.
But the survey found women to be more accepting of marijuana than men. About 86 per cent of women are open to date someone who uses marijuana as opposed to 79 per cent of men.
Cannabis and sex
Marijuana is said to alleviate some of the anxiety surrounding performance inhibition.
A study published in March showed that people who use marijuana have more sex than those who don’t.
The man behind the study was Dr. Michael Eisenberg, an assistant professor of urology at the Stanford University Medical Center.
Eisenberg, whose specialty is to help patients who have problems performing in the bedroom, said:
“Usually, people assume the more frequently you smoke, the worse it could be when it came to sex, but in fact, we learned the opposite was true.”
Eisenberg’s study was published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
The study looked at data from the US government’s National Survey of Family Growth. It asked more than 28,000 women and nearly 23,000 men how often they had sex in the four weeks prior to the survey and how frequently they used marijuana in the past year.
Sex while high on cannabis
In a study published in the Pharmacological Research in 2016, researchers found that marijuana could work as an aphrodisiac.
People, who smoke marijuana before intercourse reported feeling the green herb’s “aphrodisiac effects” in approximately half of the cases, while 70 per cent of users say they experienced “enhancement in pleasure and satisfaction.”
The researchers, meanwhile, did not find major discrepancies between men and women in these reports, which means marijuana could be a libido-booster irrespective of gender.
