Regular marijuana use linked to more sex, Stanford study finds

Regular marijuana use linked to more sex, Stanford study finds”

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

The study appears Friday in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. In an odd Catch-22, Shamloul says that recent research suggests cannabis might actually make it harder for a man's penis to become erect, even if weed might turn people on.

The research is an "impressive study because of its size", said Joseph Palamar, an associate professor of public health at New York University's Langone Medical Center, who studies drug use and sexual behavior and who was not involved in the new study.

Stanford researchers Andrew J. Sun, MD and Michael L. Eisenberg, MD have confirmed a "positive association between marijuana use and sexual frequency" in a recent study.

"What we found was compared to never-users, those who reported daily use had about 20 percent more sex".

But at the end of it, Eisenberg still cautioned that the study was not proof of their being a causal link, strong as the hints maybe.

"I think if you asked a man or a woman, 20 more times to have sex over a year, that would seem like a lot", Eisenberg said. He assumed that smoking cannabis was like smoking tobacco, which is known to interfere with sexual performance. For women it was 6 times per month and for men 5.6 times.

Researchers used data for adults between 25 and 45 years of age, collected from the year 2002 till present, as part of the now-annual self-reported survey, which is sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Some 24.5 percent of men and 14.5 percent of women reported positive association between the frequency of marijuana use and sexual intercourse. The researchers surveyed respondents about how many times they've had intercourse with a member of the opposite sex in the past four weeks and how frequently they've smoked marijuana over the past year.

The researchers factored in alcohol, cocaine use, religion, children and the results stayed steady. For instance, if a patient is both overweight and smokes marijuana, he focuses on a strategy of weight loss rather than quitting marijuana use, he said.

With cannabis becoming legal in more U.S. states and more countries around the world, there is not a lot of time to conduct all the necessary research before rolling. Also, the higher the use of marijuana, the more the increase in sexual activity, suggesting a possible active role that pot may play in enhancing sexual desire. Eisenberg says. "We don't want people to smoke to improve sexual function, but it probably doesn't hurt things". "Cannabis might increase [sexual arousal] frequency in the brain, but also decrease erectile function in the penis".
