"For example, women who reported no marijuana use during the past 12 months reported having sex six times on average during the past four weeks compared with 7.1 times for women who reported daily use", Sun and Eisenberg wrote.
Carried out by the Stanford University School of Medicine, the large-scale study looked at 28,176 American women with an average age of 29.9 years and 22,943 American men with an average age of 29.5 taking part in the National Survey of Family Growth. Men who abstained from marijuana said they had sex an average of 5.6 times in the four weeks before the survey, compared with the daily marijuana users who reported having sex 6.9 times, on average. With the legalization of marijuana on a march through the states, this study sheds some light on a drug that remains both stunningly popular (up to 33 million reportedly partake, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health) and yet hard to legally analyze in medical labs, researchers told Washington Post columnist Robert Gebelhoff.
The drug has been legalized for medical or recreational use in 29 states, and 64 percent of respondents to Gallup's latest poll support cannabis legalization - the largest share of the population in the polling service's almost 50 years of work on the question. "If anything, it's associated with increased coital frequency", said senior study author Michael Eisenberg, assistant professor of urology, according to the university press release.
That said, research shows that the average couple has sex roughly once a week. "One question my patients always have is will smoking marijuana frequently negatively impact my sexual function?" The more cannabis they smoked, the more they had sex.
Nintendo Switch Helps Nintendo Lead The Video Game Industry In Hardware Sale
However, one thing Nintendo left out in its announcement was that the Nintendo Switch now supports wireless USB headphones. Especially, with the holiday season ahead, it seems Nintendo has its Switch platform to thank for everything.
Because marijuana is still illegal in the majority of places, Palamar found that most people have to smoke in private, and that could lead to more opportunities to initiate intimacy, compared with people who drink, since alcohol is everywhere.
And at least one report showed men who smoked marijuana a few times a week had significantly lower sperm counts than non-users did. On the other hand, some studies suggest that marijuana stimulates regions of the brain which are involved in sexual arousal and activity. Overall, pot smokers had 20 percent more sex than non-smokers.
This trend was not seen in respondents who use other drugs. "It's possible it makes men or women more interested in sex", Eisenberg says.
The study was published October 27 in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
"While the results are very interesting, it's premature to suggest that marijuana may have a medicinal use in the treatment of sexual disorders such as erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation or orgasmic disorder", Vira said.
