Marijuana Smokers Had 20% More Sex Than Non-Smokers, Study Finds

According to a study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, people who smoke weed regularly have sex 20 percent more times than non-smokers.

Researchers at Stanford University’s School of Medicine examined the Center for Disease Control’s National Survey of Family Growth study. One of the questions in the survey asked how many times individuals had heterosexual sex in the past month and compared that data to how many times they smoked marijuana in the past year, and smokers had sex more often.

Women who did not smoke had sex 6 times the previous month in comparison to their smoking counterparts who had sex 7.1 times, and male smokers had sex 6.9 times in comparison to 5.6 to non-smokers. The sample size was 50,000 Americans between 25 and 45. Researchers say the increase in intercourse is not necessarily a result of smoking. While there is some correlation, it is important to note that correlation does not equate to causation. Overall, researchers ultimately concluded, “Marijuana use is independently associated with increased sexual frequency and does not appear to impair sexual function.” 

If the research results are accurate and marijuana does not negatively impact sexual performance, then the legalization of marijuana could cause America’s birth rate to rise. And that is great news considering the impact synthetic marijuana is having on individuals across the nation.
