Regular marijuana users have more sex, study says

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

For years, scientists have generally found in studies that marijuana use lead to sexual problems.

That seems to indicate that the association can't be explained away by saying that people with fewer inhibitions are likely to both smoke pot and engage frequently in sex, Eisenberg said. "It doesn't say if you smoke more marijuana, you'll have more sex", Eisenberg said.

On average, women who smoked weed every day had sex 7,1 times in a month, compared to the six times enjoyed by women who eschewed weed.

Similarly, men who used marijuana daily reported having sex with a woman 6.9 times per month, compared with 5.6 times for nonusers.

"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 or not they had kids", Michael Eisenberg, a senior author of the study, said in a statement Friday. This bias is baked into the very names of the institutions that fund much of this research - it's why we have a National Institute on Drug Abuse, rather than a National Institute on Drug Use.

Marijuana is legal for medical or recreational adult use in 29 states and the District of Columbia, said spokesman Morgan Fox of the Marijuana Policy Project.

New studies are constantly done on the effects that weed has on your body, but for now, a low sex drive isn't one you need to get paranoid about. They assessed these individuals' self-reported patterns of marijuana use over the previous year and their self-reported frequency of heterosexual intercourse over the previous four weeks.

Sexual frequency also increased steadily as marijuana use also increased, suggested that it could play an active role in increasing sexual activity.

The responses showed that 24.5 per cent of men and 14.5 per cent of women reported having used marijuana, and that there was a positive association between the frequency of marijuana use and the frequency of sexual intercourse.

However, some studies have found the drug affects a man's sperm count and erectile function, while others have shown it activates sexual arousal in the brain. "So over the course of a year, [marijuana users are] having sex maybe 20 more times", Eisenberg noted.

"The personality type issue is certainly possible", Eisenberg said. Answers from around 28,000 women and 23,000 men were considered for their study, which was published online today in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.

A key closing distinction: The study does not establish a causal connection between cannabis use and sexual activity-there's no evidence cannabis users are getting high and getting busy in one fell swoop.

"Given the increasing use, the effects of marijuana use on adult health and function are increasingly relevant".
