Carl Sagan thought marijuana led to better sex. And many who frequently uses marijuana will tell you they completely agree with the late astrophysicist. Of course, better sex is one thing. But can cannabis use actually lead to more sex?
The answer, according to a new study, is “yes.” Although it’s a qualified “yes.” More study, as researchers often say, is needed.
Andrew J. Sun and Michael L. Eisenberg, both doctors affiliated with the Department of Urology at Stanford University, conducted the new study. They used data on 28,156 women and 22,943 men taken from the National Survey of Family Growth.
That survey has information both on frequency of sex and marijuana use. The two doctors found a clear trend: “A positive association between marijuana use and sexual frequency is seen in men and women across all demographic groups.” In other words – more marijuana use, more sex.
