If you’ve ever smoked weed before, 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.
Scientists at Stanford University went ahead and conducted a study to confirm: Weed takes sex to a whole ‘another 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% more sex than those who don’t smoke weed.
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.
In this survey, researchers polled 133 sexually-active adult women at one particular, academic ObGyn practice, during their annual check-ups. The female patients filled out a lengthy questionnaire regarding marijuana use before sex (hashtag #MUBS).
In the survey, Thirty-eight women (29%) disclosed consuming cannabis prior to copulation. Of those 38 women, 68% reported more pleasurable sex, 16% said it ruined their sexual experience, while the remaining 16% were undecided or unaware.
The same research team later widened the scope of their survey to 289 adult MUBS women, with similar results: 65% decided it enhanced their sexual experience, 23% said it did not matter one way or the other, 9% had no significant feedback and 3% said it sabotaged their sexual experience.
So, in short, researchers reached this simple conclusion: Weed + Sex = Amazing.
