Does Cannabis Improve Sex?
The Highs of Marijuana and Sex
Marijuana comes from the hemp plant called Cannabis Sativa. This amazing plant has long been considered to have medical and aphrodisiac qualities and offers various positive sex effects. Keep in mind that drug's effects are rarely simple, and there is no true “wonder drug” that will give you every benefit without any drawback (or vice versa). Just remember Cannabis helps with improved sex, but low doses are key.
Does Marijuana Make Sex Better?
At lower doses, Marijuana or Dagga may alter how you sense and perceive sexual stimulation in ways that enhance sex. People report that their awareness of touch is heightened, and their perception of time can change. So things including sexual contact feel better, and sex seems to go on longer as well.
For men, marijuana may shift attention away from their usual focus on the penis. In one survey of 900 men, 85 percent found that marijuana enhanced sexual pleasure and orgasm.
In another study, 75 percent of men said that marijuana increased sexual pleasure and sexual satisfaction, 70 percent reported that it enhanced their orgasm, and 45 percent found that it increased the duration of intercourse and climax.
Women are even more likely than men to report enhanced sexual desire with marijuana use. In one study, 90 percent of women reported that marijuana increased feelings of sexual pleasure and satisfaction to varying degrees, and 40 percent of women reported that marijuana increased the quality of their orgasm.
Since Cannabis increases awareness of touch and feeling it can make the vibrations and pleasure sex toys offer so much more intense. Using lubes and oils can also make the feelings of pleasure so much better.
The Bottom Line on Marijuana and Sex
Marijuana has many reported positive effects on sexual satisfaction in men and women, research and anecdotal evidence consistently show that in small doses, there are perceived positive effects. Dagga is now legal in South Africa for private bedroom use so why not give this herb a try and see if it spices up your sex life.
