Potheads get more pussy

Blowing out of the water the myth that cannabis smokers can’t get it up in the bedroom and spend more time sitting around in a pot-fuelled haze, research finds that regular marijuana users have around 20 percent more sex than those who don’t touch the stuff.
 
In new research from Stanford University, it was found that men who used marijuana daily reported having sex with a woman 6.9 times per month, compared to 5.6 times for nonusers.

Similarly when it came to females, the survey found that women who smoked marijuana daily had sex with a male partner an average of 7.1 times per month, compared to 6 times per month for non-smoking women.
 
The study analyzed data on 28,000 female and 23,000 male participants in the National Survey of Family Growth, a nationally representative survey of Americans age 15 to 49.
 
The findings held water even after the researchers controlled for a number of demographic variables already known to affect sex habits and marijuana use.
 
"The overall trend we saw applied to people of both sexes and all races, ages, education levels, income groups and religions, every health status, whether they were married or single and whether they had kids," author Michael Eisenberg said in a statement.
 
Interestingly, the study also discovered what researchers call a ‘dose-dependent relationship’ between marijuana use and sex frequency. If respondent’s marijuana use rates increased, so did their frequency of having sex.
 
The study does not, however, necessarily indicate a causal relationship between marijuana use and sex. "It doesn't say if you smoke more marijuana, you'll have more sex," Eisenberg said. For instance, people who are naturally inclined to have more frequent sex may be predisposed to marijuana use anyway. 
 
So is stoned sex better?

Some research from 2016 for example, found that respondents generally said that stoned sex was more pleasurable than drunk or sober sex.

A 2003 study also found that over half of marijuana users said the drug was a libido-booster, compared to 26 percent who said it inhibited their sex drive.
 
"In humans, sex is not only a means to procreation but serves as an important source of physical pleasure and expression of emotional intimacy," the Stanford authors wrote.

A lot of other research has found a link between the frequency of sex and overall physical and mental health. People who have more sex, on average, are happier and less stressed, they have lower blood pressure, and better cardiovascular health overall.
