Marijuana and Sex: Surprising Results of This Blogger’s Informal Survey
A surprising proportion of respondents said, "It depends."

Published on May 1, 2011 by Michael Castleman, M.A. in All About Sex


67%f respondents said marijuana enhances sex.
• "I'm not a frequent smoker, but when I have smoked and then had sex, it's been the most amazing sex of my life."

• "Marijuana engulfs me in sex foam. I'm just pure sex on that stuff. It's great. I could never feel that way sober or drunk."

• "Definitely enhances sex. A few tokes make me feel horny the vast majority of the time, and it makes the whole experience much more enjoyable."

• "After smoking, I can feel my nipples perk up, clitoris tingle, and vagina become wet to the point that I can feel it through my pants and my man knows he is in for a LONG night."

• "Cannabis is soooo good for sex that sometimes it can become awkward because during casual hook-ups, the woman might get the wrong idea...."

12% said marijuana destroys sex.
• "My boyfriend and I have smoked (fairly heavily) for the past year and I would say that it 100% has a terrible effect on our sex life. It's been a huge libido killer for our relationship."

• "As I've continued to use marijuana (been almost 5 years smoking now) it's inhibited sex for me more and more."

But 20% said marijuana's sexual effect depends on the dose, strain, and the smoker's mood.

• "The effects of marijuana strongly relate to how a person is feeling prior to smoking. If I'm in a bad mood and smoke, sex is completely out of the question because, as you said, I withdraw into myself and just can't connect with anyone else. On the other hand, if my beau and I have had a great night out and top it off with a bowl, it's definitely got its merits."

• "Contrary to popular belief, not all buds are alike. Some weed makes you want to be very sexual and I've had some of the best orgasms of my life after using marijuana. Some of it makes you feel more introverted and thoughtful."

• "I find that indica shortly before sex is just unbeatable for mind-blowing lovemaking. Sativa should be avoided as it's cerebral nature will make your mind wander."

As I mentioned, these comments can't be seen as anything other than anecdotal reports. But anecdotes often stimulate more rigorous research. If any research psychologists or psychopharmacologists read this and are plan to study marijuana's impact on sex, I suggest that you include the option "it depends." Clearly, many PsychologyToday.com readers think it does.

why is the photography club page the site for discussions on drug/sex? what in the world does this contribute to this medium or site? surely there is a better place to promote what sort of drugs you can do that might heighten sex - geez - shocker - lowering your inhibitions might improve sex - whatever - weird place for this.

I still don't see how it's relevant to art - regardless of a credible source - it's a fine article it's just weird on an photography site. :shrug:

i don't find you irresponsible or anything - i just find it odd - i never would think an article on how lowering inhibitions via drugs could improve sex would be found on a photo site is all. :peace:
