Study says Pot Users Have More Sex

You’d be wrong if you think if you smoke more marijuana, sex will magically occur. ‘Cause that’s not how it happens.

They studied 28,176 women and 22,943 men

A study conducted by Andrew J. Sun and Michael L Eisenberg of Stanford University found that pot smokers tended to have more sex than those who did not dance with Mary Jane.

The study looked at data received from the National Survey of Family Growth. They conducted surveys in  2002, 2006 to 2010 and 2011 to 2015. It comprised a nationally representative sample of 28,176 women and 22,943 men. The findings were that the average age of  women was 29.9 years old and men were 29.5 years old. The survey had the following questions:


Men: “Now, please think about the past 4 weeks. How many times have you had sexual intercourse with a woman in the past 4 weeks?”

Women: “Now, please think about the past 4 weeks. How many times have you had sexual intercourse with a man in the past 4 weeks?”

Those were rather politically correct questions, and they excluded same-sex sexual encounters. To clarify the survey did say   “sometimes this is called making love, having sex or going all the way.” The survey also asked, “During the past 12 months, how often have you smoked marijuana?” Of note, this question didn’t seem to say “please.”

Women who use weed regularly had sex 7.3 times a month

The results saw that women that used marijuana mostly had sex on average 6.7 times over the previous four weeks (or roughly a month) compared with sex times a month for those who never used. Women who used weed regularly did the deed 7.3 times a month. Those who baked on a daily basis had sex 7.1 times a month.

On the guy side. The numbers for monthly, weekly and daily intake were 5.7, 6.0 and 6.9 times a month.Compare that with 5.6 times a month for those who did not smoke.

Again, you’d be wrong if you are alone and want more sex and start rolling up a spliff. All the study shows is that there’s an association.  We need to look closer before stronger conclusions about sex and marijuana can be drawn. The increasing attention to and legalization of marijuana may mean that more scientific studies are on the way. Time will tell how difficult it will be to recruit for such studies.

We’ll leave you with this…
