People who regularly consume cannabis more often having sex – this is the conclusion reached by researchers from the Medical school of Stanford University under the direction of associate Professor of urology Michael Eisenberg, reports The Telegraph.
«Marijuana use is very common, but its impact on intimate life, including addiction, sexual life frequency of cannabis use, has never been studied before,» said Eisenberg.
Meanwhile, despite frequent medical concern that marijuana use may weaken sexual desire, a new study shows the opposite situation.
For their study, researchers interviewed 50 million Americans aged 25 to 45 years. They found that women who consumed cannabis, had sex on average 7.1 times per month, while among their peers, not Smoking pot, this figure was 6. Men who consume cannabis, have sex 6.9 times per month (for men, with nothing to do marijuana, this figure was 5.6).
Thus, the researchers came to the conclusion that marijuana use may contribute to sexual desire in both sexes, regardless of their age, health status, income level and marital status.
