Stanford Study Confirms Cannabis Users Have More Sex

Stanford Study Confirms Cannabis Users Have More Sex”

Where there is smoke, there tends to be fire, say medical researchers who found frequent marijuana users have about 20 percent more sex than those who abstain.

Users, both men and women, have approximately 20 percent more sex than those who smoke less or not at all.

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.

Now science has confirmed it. People who smoke marijuana really do have more sex.

Kid Rock says Senate 'campaign' was a stunt
Last month, the internet was abuzz when Kid Rock started dropping hints about throwing his hat in the ring for a U.S. Kid Rock will kick off his " Greatest Show On Earth Tour 2018" on January 19 at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.

The study analyzed 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.

The researchers found that the women in the study who said they hadn't used marijuana in the past year reported that they'd had sex an average of six times in the previous month. Among men, daily cannabis users reported having sex an average of 6.9 times in the last four weeks, compared to 5.6 for non-users. With the legalization of marijuana on a march through the states, this study sheds some light on a drug that remains both stunningly popular (up to 33 million reportedly partake, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health) and yet hard to legally analyze in medical labs, researchers told Washington Post columnist Robert Gebelhoff.

The study is the first to examine the relationship between frequency of sexual intercourse and marijuana use at the population level in the US. Because the surveys didn't ask participants when they were using marijuana, it's hard to directly relate use of the drug to sexual activity and function based on this study, Palamar said.

And at least one report showed men who smoked marijuana a few times a week had significantly lower sperm counts than non-users did. In addition, coital frequency rose steadily with increasing marijuana use, a dose-dependent relationship supporting a possible active role for marijuana in fostering sexual activity. It contains explicit questions about intercourse with a member of the opposite sex in the past four weeks, as well as the frequency of smoking marijuana in the previous 12 months.

Incidentally, Parasakti was a film that was penned by DMK leader Karunanidhi, which had late Shivaji Ganesan in the lead role. Mohammed Riyas said: "We can not understand why the BJP is so antithetical to cinema dialogues critical of its government.

It's an issue because more and more people report using marijuana as states legalize it.

But animal studies have shown that stimulating the brain's cannabinoid receptors can lead to increased arousal and sexual behavior, Eisenberg said.

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. His study was published in this week's Journal of Sexual Medicine. "I just think it's reassuring that more marijuana use doesn't necessarily inhibit sexual function".
