Pot Smokers Have More Sex, Study Finds

Pot Smokers Have More Sex, Study Finds

People who smoke more marijuana are having more sex than those who smoke less, or don't smoke at all, a new study suggests.

Researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine found that marijuana users have approximately 20 percent more sex than their counterparts.

"Frequent marijuana use doesn't seem to impair sexual motivation or performance", said Michael Eisenberg, senior author of the study.

But a new study claimed that not only does the average person who smokes marijuana regularly have a healthy amount of sex, they actually may have more sex than the average person who does not. According to Eisenberg, that finding suggests that the positive association between marijuana consumption and frequency of sex does not simply reflect a general tendency among less-inhibited individuals, who may be more likely to use drugs, to also have more sex.

"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 told Reuters. 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.

The results held across the board, at all age levels and regardless of other factors such as marital status and education, Eisenberg said.

A record percentage of Americans - 64 percent - now believe adult use of the drug should be legal, according to a Gallup poll published this week.

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. The only firm conclusion was that, for whatever reason, smoking daily led to an increase in sexual activity.

After excluding respondents who didn't answer one or more of the relevant questions, the researcher was left with data for 28,176 women, averaging 29.9 years of age, and 22,943 men, averaging 29.5 years of age.

"It doesn't say if you smoke more marijuana, you'll have more sex", he said. The survey asked if respondents had "sexual intercourse" in the previous four weeks, and clarified that "sometimes, this is called making love, having sex or going all the way".

Some 24.5 percent of men and 14.5 percent of women in the analysis reported having used marijuana, and there was a positive association between the frequency of marijuana use and the frequency of sexual intercourse. It would appear that people who use cannabis on a daily basis have more sex.

In addition, the trend remained even after accounting for subjects' use of other drugs, such as cocaine or alcohol. "It's possible it makes men or women more interested in sex", Eisenberg says.
