Marijuana linked to sex

Where there is smoke, there tends to be fire, say medical researchers who conducted research indicating frequent marijuana users have about 20 per cent more sex than those who don’t smoke pot.

Stanford University School of Medicine researchers unveiled the link between marijuana and the frequency of sexual intercourse in a study published Friday in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

Researchers in California reached their conclusions after a retrospective analysis of data on 50,000 Americans ages 25 to 45, compiled from 2002 to 2015 by the National Survey of Family Growth. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sponsors the survey.

Respondents were asked how many times they have had heterosexual intercourse in the previous four weeks and how frequently they have smoked marijuana over the past 12 months, Stanford researchers said in a news release.

Women who were daily pot users had sex an average of 7.1 times during the previous four weeks, compared with six times reported by those who denied using marijuana in the past year. For men, daily users reported 6.9 times compared with 5.6 for non-users.

“In other words, pot users are having about 20 per cent more sexthan pot abstainers,” said the study’s senior author, Dr. Michael Eisenberg, assistant professor of urology at Stanford.

Given that the average couple has sex about once a week, Eisenberg said, the bottom line for partaking in a bong or blunt could add up to 20 more instances of sexual intercourse each year.

“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.
