Sex and drugs: U.S. study links marijuana use to more intercourse

Interestingly, the frequency of sexual intercourse rose steadily with increasing marijuana use, which hints at a potentially active role for marijuana in fostering sexual activity.

"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. We all know the risks associated with marijuana use - dependency, impaired driving, decreased academic performance, etc.

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. Women who did report using marijuana in the past year reported that they'd had sex more frequently, an average of seven times in the previous month.

It's possible it makes men or women more interested in sex.
Among men, daily cannabis users reported having sex an average of 6.9 times in the last four weeks, compared to 5.6 for non-users. "It was pretty much every group we studied, this pattern persisted", he says.

Around 25.5% of men and 14.5% of women in the analysis reported having used marijuana, and in addition, the researchers found a positive association between frequency of marijuana use and frequency of sexual intercourse.

Palamar authored a small study comparing the sexual experience of people who are under the influence of alcohol versus marijuana. "Sexual medicine is one area where little data exists and more information will help both patients and providers". Some women also reported vaginal dryness when they smoked pot, and that too can limit sexual pleasure.

With cannabis becoming legal in more USA states and more countries around the world, there is not a lot of time to conduct all the necessary research before rolling. Some qualitative research published in 2016, for instance, found that respondents generally said that stoned sex was more pleasurable than drunk or sober sex.
