One question the researchers considered is whether people who use marijuana tend to be more outgoing in general and are therefore the type of people who also have sex more frequently.
The findings, published Friday in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, are based on an analysis of results from the National Survey of Family Growth, which asks respondents questions such as how many times they've had sex in the past four weeks and how often they've smoked marijuana over the past year. It explicitly queries respondents on how many times they've had intercourse with a member of the opposite sex in the past four weeks, and how frequently they've smoked marijuana over the past 12 months.
Researchers at Stanford University have used a lifestyle survey of 50,000 adults aged 25 to 45 to assess the effect of the drug on sexual activity. This relationship applied to both sexes: Women denying marijuana use in the past year, for example, had sex on average 6.0 times during the previous four weeks, whereas that number was 7.1 for daily pot users. Among men, marijuana users had sex 6.9 times a month, compared with 5.6 times for nonusers. At this time, 29 states have declared marijuana legal for recreational or medicinal purposes, and estimates suggest that more than 22 million Americans use pot, the researchers said in background information.
For pot in particular we're just now starting to understand some of the potential benefits of the drug, including euphoria and relaxation, pain relief, lower rates of opiate dependence and domestic violence, decreased use of more harmful drugs, and, apparently, better sexual health. "It was pretty much every group we studied, this pattern persisted", he says.
That amounts to roughly 20 percent higher frequency of sexual intercourse for people who consume marijuana.
Given that the average couple has sex about once a week, Eisenberg said, the bottom line for partaking in a bong or blunt could add up to 20 more instances of sexual intercourse each year.
But animal studies have shown that stimulating the brain's cannabinoid receptors can lead to increased arousal and sexual behavior, Eisenberg said. Even so, pot smokers appear to be having more sex than their straighter-edged pals, the researchers wrote in a statement.
Eisenberg also pointed out that the positive association between cannabis use and coital frequency was not dependent on other factors, including the use of other drugs like cocaine and alcohol.
The study was published October 27 in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
Sexual frequency also increased steadily as marijuana use also increased, suggested that it could play an active role in increasing sexual activity.
