Heavy cannabis users have more sex

Marijuana Mask Marijuana users have more sex

The study found that women who didn't use marijuana reported having sex six times on average during the past four weeks, while those who smoked it had sex 7.1 times, CNN reported.

"What we found was compared to never-users, those who reported daily use had about 20 percent more sex".

Speaking about it, study's senior author, Michael Eisenberg, MD, assistant professor of urology went on to say that frequent marijuana use doesn't seem to impair sexual motivation or performance.

People who smoke marijuana might be having more sex than their peers who don't use it, a Friday study revealed. "It doesn't say if you smoke more marijuana, you'll have more sex", Eisenberg said.

The study analysed data on 28,000 female and 23,000 male participants in the National Survey of Family Growth, a nationally representative CDC survey of Americans age 15 to 49. 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, those who didn't smoke pot had sex 5.6 times in four weeks, while those who smoked daily had sex 6.9 times.

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

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, more than 20 million adult Americans are current marijuana users. Marijuana is legal for medical or recreational adult use in 29 states in the USA and the District of Columbia.

Cannabis consumers are having 20% more sex than cannabis abstainers. Eisenberg said, "It was pretty much every group we studied, this pattern persisted".

The results show a dose-dependent relationship: The frequency of intercourse rose with increasing marijuana use. What's more, the link was found across all kinds of demographic groups.

The study focused on heterosexual sex and did not explain why there might be a connection between sex and marijuana, CNN reported. It explicitly queries respondents on how many times they've had intercourse with a member of the opposite sex in the past four weeks, and how frequently they've smoked marijuana over the past 12 months.

They included data from respondents between ages 25-45.

But at the end of it, Eisenberg still cautioned that the study was not proof of their being a causal link, strong as the hints maybe.

That said, research shows that the average couple has sex roughly once a week.
