A new study by Stanford University’s School of Medicine confirms not only that frequent marijuana use does NOT impair sexual desire, but that in fact marijuana smokers have more sex at a significant rate!

The study, which involved 50,000 Americans between the ages of 25-45, found that women who used marijuana regularly had sex on average 7.1 times a month, compared with 6 for those who did not. Men had an even greater differential, with male cannabis users having sex 6.9 times in a month compared to just 5.6 times for the squares unenlightened.

This information is helping challenge the long-held myths about cannabis and virility and leading scientists to conclude that the drug may in fact be stimulating sexual arousal (shocker, we know!).

Frequent marijuana use doesn’t seem to impair sexual motivation or performance. If anything, it’s associated with increased coital frequency.

Michael Eisenberg, Standford’s assistant professor of urology and the study’s senior contributor asserts that the elevated sexy-time trend cross all races, ages, education levels, income groups and religions, as well as every health status, whether they were married or single and whether they had kids or not.
