Stanford Study Confirms Cannabis Users Have More Sex

  • Marijuana users have more sex

The study pointed out that marijuana users are 20 percent more sexually active than those who abstain from weed.

The results were clear: No matter the person's age, race, education level, income group, whether they were single or married, or whether they had kids, if they smoked marijuana, they reported having sex more frequently than non-marijuana smokers.

Currently, more than 20 million adult Americans use marijuana, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

The study asked 50,000 men and women how many people they had slept with, and how often they've smoked weed over the past year. More than 28,000 women and almost 23,000 men were asked how often they had sex in the four weeks before the survey and how often they used marijuana in the past year, CNN reported. Among men, marijuana users had sex 6.9 times a month, compared with 5.6 times for nonusers.

For the study, Eisenberg and Sun analysed data going back to 2002 from the annual US National Survey of Family Growth which contains information regarding family structures, sexual practices and childbearing from a sample created to represent the demographics of the American population.

Senior author of the study, Michael Eisenberg, said that frequent marijuana use does not seem to adversely impact sexual performance or motivation.

"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. "If anything, it's associated with increased coital frequency", he said.

Las Vegas shooter's brother arrested on suspicion of possessing child pornography
The brother of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of child pornography , according to reports. Los Angeles police said the investigation began after authorities discovered evidence inside a business in Sun Valley.

The findings, published online in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, negate concerns among physicians and scientists that frequent marijuana use may impair sexual desire or performance.

As such, a fair amount of other research has found a link between the frequency of sex and overall physical and mental health.

The survey had also asked the participants how frequently they had engaged in sex with a partner from the opposite gender in the past month. But that rose to 7.1 times for those who smoked it daily.

About 24.5 percent of the men and 14.5 percent of the women reported using marijuana.

The trend also held up when the researchers accounted for survey respondents' use of other drugs, like cocaine and alcohol. Therefore, the study has suggested that the finding does not imply that people who are less inhibited have more sex or use drugs.

Dr Eisenberg cautioned the study should not be misinterpreted as having proven a causal link.
